With a 2000 pound bull bearing down on you, it helps to have a sense of humor. It also helps to have a barrel to hide in. Luckily for rodeo fans, our 2018 Rodeo Clown and Barrelman, Denny Halstead has both.

Denny is one of the most popular Rodeo Clowns and Barrelmen on the Professional Rodeo Circuit. In 2016, he was selected as the Alternate Barrelman at the Wrangler NFR in Las Vegas. 2017 marks the sixth time Denny Halstead has been recognized as the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association Comedy Act of the Year, and the second time he was nominated as one of the top 5 rodeo clowns in the PRCA. Denny is also a two-time Canadian Finals Rodeo Clown/Barrelman & a two-time RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo Clown/Barrelman.No automatic alt text available.

A household name among rodeo fans on both sides of the 49th parallel, Denny entertains fans throughout the year. Retired from a 30 year career as a Calgary, Alberta fireman, Dennis spends much of the year on the road criss-crossing the U.S. and Canada where his zany humor and hilarious rodeo acts are enjoyed by fans of all ages.

This past year saw Dennis appear at roughly 140 performances from Strathmore Stampede & Leduc Black Gold Pro Rodeo in Alberta to Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo (Rapid City, South Dakota) & Kitsap County Fair & Stampede in Bremerton, Washington. Denny has also traveled across the Pacific Ocean to entertain rodeo fans at Australia’s largest rodeo.Image may contain: outdoor

One of the attributes most notable about Denny is his belief that being a rodeo clown is about more than arena performances. Look for Dennis to make community appearances, attend media events, and support a number of charitable causes. And best of all, is the smile and fun that he takes along with him.
