I don’t know when it was that stand-up comics started telling clown jokes. I wish to say I used to be absolutely an grownup earlier than it was delivered to my consideration—by these stand-up comics—that the entire clown factor is fairly bizarre. I recall a neighborhood shock jock dedicating appreciable consideration to the entire clown-as-a-career factor.
Throughout the confines of a circus, clowns kind of make sense, if solely as a result of the whole environment is borderline surreal. Outdoors of the circus venue I discover clowning somewhat unusual, and so much pointless.
I will not be the one one somewhat squeamish about clowns. It took me some time to discover a gallery’s value of automotive advertisements that includes clowns, and a few of these are actually simply circus-focused—my apologies.
Oh, and for the file, there’s a clown corridor of fame, although the group’s web site doesn’t truly listing inductees on its web site. Not that it issues a lot, as Emmet Kelly and Chicago’s legendary Bozo are the one skilled clowns I can title. Anyway, please benefit from the advertisements:
