Did you know that there is more than one type of clown?

:cb: Clowning is a creative art form that constantly evolves. :cb:

Whiteface Clown
Whiteface Clown covers their face in white makeup and their body in oversized clothing including oversized shoes.


Auguste Clown
The Auguste either couldn’t figure out how to get anything right, or they were the victim of pranks pulled by the Whiteface clown.


Tramp Clown

There were singing Tramps, juggling Tramps, Tramp magicians, silent Tramps, Tramp monologists, skating Tramps, Tramp artists, and even Tramp pianists.

Character Clown

A clown can be a cop, baseball player, doctor, and a boxer at different times without changing character as long as their personality doesn’t change.

Mime Clown

Often they wear a mime style make up which ends at the jaw line, leaving their neck uncovered

Rodeo Clowns

Rodeo clowns have the very serious job of protecting cowboys during the bull riding contest.

Creepy Clown

The evil clown archetype plays strongly off the sense of dislike it caused to inherent elements of coulrophobia; however, it has been suggested by Joseph Durwin that the concept of evil clowns has an independent position in popular culture, arguing that “the concept of evil clowns and the widespread hostility it induces is a cultural phenomenon which transcends just the phobia alone”.

Jester Clown

Jesters entertained with a wide variety of skills including but not limited to music, storytelling, acrobatics, juggling, telling jokes, and magic tricks.

:ccb: Which one are YOU? :ccb:

There used to be blackface clowns, but it’s not advisable to dress as one.

Those would be master clowns
:c:
Glen Gordon "Frosty" Little (December 5, 1925 – October 26, 2010) was a circus clown who served with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for over 20 years. He was one of only four clowns ever to have been given the title "Master Clown" by the Ringling organization.

In 1983, Little was named "Master Clown" by the Ringling organization, only the fourth clown ever to be so named (after Otto Griebling, Bobby Kaye, and Lou Jacobs – Little's mentor). Little was the last person ever to have been awarded the title, and was the last surviving Master Clown at the time of his death.

I feel sorry for all the people who decided to be clowns back before the internet decided they were creepy. Like thousands of years of people wearing makeup and entertaining people then bam, it's all over because of some dumb reason. My fourth birthday was clown-themed and all my four-year-old friends were cool with it. Now everybody would be freaking out over how cReeeEEeeeePPPpy it is. Pretty hosed up really.

Clowns were unsettling long before the internet. Some are happy and fun for children but that is really not the main historical thrust

Low Clown requires little skill in the clowning (if there is a clown at all). Often a visual or highly physical clown. Appropriate for all year levels.

Black Clown is clown that makes fun of serious subject matter such as death and religion. Offensive to some, hilarious to others. Requires intelligent clowning. Suitable for senior year levels.

Clown dell’arte is historical, improvised physical clown, originating in Italy around the year 1550. Arlecchino the harlequin servant made it famous! Most suitable for middle and senior year levels.

High Clown is intellectual (normally literary) clown displaying a sophisticated wit, such as Oscar Wilde’s clown The Importance of Being Earnest. Suitable for senior year levels.

Romantic Clown is clown involving love and romance. Many of Shakespeare’s clowns are romantic clowns. Suitable for middle and senior years.

Musical Clown is mostly (not always) comic in some way, hence lighthearted and appealing to the masses. Suitable for middle and senior years.

Sentimental Clown is not really a clown at all, but clowns that involve the main clown overcoming a series of moral challenges. Suitable for senior year levels.

Clown of Morals is a clown that condemns unacceptable behaviour in society via the use of satire. Moliere’s Tartuffe is considered a fine example of the clown. Suitable for senior year levels.
