Scary Clowns?

Recommended Posts

The only thing about scary clowns is sending them in if they are Right wing bigots. Most clowns are not.

There's little mystery about the dual personality of clowns. It is a long established tradition in theatre with its masks of tragic drama and comedy. eg. See the clown in Cecil B. DeMille's circus film "The Greatest Show On Earth
Also the juxtaposition of the clown's laughter and then crying as he sings the soulful lament in Leoncavallo's short opera Pagliacci
