Why Are Clowns So Scary?


Maybe the fundamental motivation behind why jokesters can show up so startling is on the grounds that the comedian’s make-up makes it difficult to peruse honest to goodness human feeling.

With a specific end goal to feel safe, as located individuals we rely upon visual prompts, outward appearances particularly help us to rapidly evaluate a man’s character.

With the comedian’s painted face we just can’t do that. The individual is holing up behind the make-up, and if a man is concealing we may imagine that he has a comment – maybe notwithstanding something not under any condition pleasant.

Danger Behind the Make-Up

We may feel that there’s something dim or vile prowling behind the make-up – just like the case with the American mass killer John Wayne Gacey who in the 1970s, dressed as a comedian called ‘Pogo, murdered more than 35 youngsters. Truth be told, Gacey is accounted for to have said that as a jokester “you can escape with kill”. He didn’t obviously, since he was executed for his wrongdoings.

The ‘threat behind the make-up’ is something that the motion pictures have gotten on. Heath Ledger’s rendition of ‘The Joker’ in the Batman motion picture for instance was made up as a comedian, and this influenced him to appear to be significantly all the more threatening, all the more agitating.

Furthermore, obviously there is a component of lunacy in the jokester’s tricks, something erratic and wild about them that can be truly agitating, something that maybe bothers our feeling of ‘ordinariness’.

The Cultural Factor

There is by all accounts a social factor in kids’ reaction to comedians, be that as it may. Research from the University of Sheffield in the UK, for instance, found that most youngsters despised and even dreaded pictures of jokesters.

While Italian analysts found that kids hospitalized for respiratory sicknesses showed signs of improvement quicker in the wake of playing with ‘helpful comedians’.

Whatever the purpose behind individuals’ abhorrence or dread of comedians, the ‘jokester assaults’ currently hitting the news will unquestionably add to this, maybe for a considerable length of time to come.
