Creepy clowns obscure the value of real clowning

(Premium content) Premium content

The current craze for creepy clowns is a sad reminder that real clowning is a misunderstood art.

An unprecedented wave of “creepy clowns” is, apparently, sweeping the globe. It is thought to have started in August, in South Carolina, where two clown figures were spotted by children lurking near some woods – raising the concerns of local police. Throughout September the phenomenon spread across North America, and in recent weeks hundreds of clown sightings have been reported in Australia, New Zealand, France and the UK.
