About Clowns and Clown Skits:

A clown is a comic performer, including physical humor and slapstick comedy. They have colorful faces and wigs and especially clothing and wear large footwear.

Clowns have been associated with the circus since the late 18th century.

The most prevalent type of character clown is in North America and is the hero, tramp or a bum clown.

It is no secret that clowns make some people uncomfortable at times.  Clowns were created for social conventions and to speak truth to empower.  Many times they are seen waving their gloved fingers.

When they are right, they are cheered on by audiences, and if they are wrong, usually in the most familiar, human way possible, they show this by their painful or embarrassing pratfalls. Clowns put many people on edge with their suspiciously cheerful costumes, exaggerated facial features, and seeming lack of impulse control.

Clowns are still very popular in the social aspect of entertaining for birthday parties, performing arts, Sunday school skits, circus clowns, high school plays, etc. A clown entertains with his jokes, antics, and tricks in a circus or play and is usually a clumsier rude person.

Clowns that trained in Elizabethan theater played the fool in many Shakespeare comedies.  They are still used today to entertain children in hospitals, convalescent homes, and also the social elite. Skits are a great way to introduce clowns to children.
