Why Are People Afraid Of Clowns? – A FOOL’S IDEA (S01 – EP08)

Welcome to the season one finale of “A Fools Idea”, our exploration into the world of comedy, performance, life & clown concludes its first season with one of the biggest discussion points in the clown world, “Why are people afraid of clowns?”. So many people seem to be afraid of clowns, but do they really understand what it is that frightens them? Is it a trendy fad to be afraid of clowns? If people are truly afraid of clowns, then why are they still willing to pay $400.00 to see a Cirque Du Soleil show? See what the cast of season one has to say about the fear of clowns.

A FOOLS IDEA is a documentary web-series that explores the world of clown in a way never experienced before. Most full episodes are based on a thesis question, and we collect interviews from experts on the subject and have them explore and discuss the topic until we reach some kind of answer.

Viewers are encouraged to ask questions about clown, performance, character, or just life in general. Future episodes of the series will be based on YOUR questions, so please be sure to ask them in the comments section of each episode. If there was something about the episode that you are confused about, be sure to ask away!

This series is here to educate YOU about all aspects of clown, so if you want to know something be sure to ask something, and eventually your question may end up featured in an episode, explored and explained through the eyes of a clown.

Help me create a conversation between audience and clown, clown and clown, audience and audience. Lets dispel the myths, and figure this thing out together.

    Very good.
    Some people love clowns!! They smile, they´re happy.
    Its my duty as a clown to notice, how my opponent/friend is to me.
    When i´m openhearted and warm and true, then normally there will be a communication.
    Less people doesn´t want to have to do anything with clowns. But that are persons, who don`t want to have to do with nobody. Especially with themselve! :O))
    See You later.
