Are you afraid of clowns? – from a discussion on Quora.com
No, partly because I am one 🙂
But speaking more broadly, why not? Growing up, I watchedon WGN-TV for years — he was a whiteface clown, who teamed up with Roy Brown ( ). And they weren’t scary, they were friendly, and they were fun — and they invited the audience to share in that fun.
And, I realized that “clown” doesn’t mean “make up” — many of my favorite clowns don’t wear makeup. Watch the Carol Burnett Show (rerun on MeTV at 9:00 CST weeknights) — and you realize that the entire cast are clowns. So are the Three Stooges, , and many others.
If I’m not afraid of them, I’m not afraid of clowns.
