Why Clowns Will Never Die

Clowns have been around since antiquity in one form or another, in cultures all over the world. Learn the history of the performers we know as clowns: the imp, the trickster, the fool, the jester, the harlequin, the clown, and the tramp. In the past few decades, the reputation of clowns has taken a beating, from the eerie picture of serial killer John Wayne Gacy in clown makeup to Stephen King’s Pennywise. But clown culture is thriving, too, in new incarnations such as hip-hop clowns, the new vaudeville movement, and the many classically-trained clowns looking for gigs. Read about all of these facets of clowndom at Collectors Weekly.
