Since I have experience being a goofball I thought I could do some commentary on the subject.

It is a fine line to tread, trying to keep an air of delightful charisma while tripping over ones own feet. Lose the charisma and you look like a compleat ass.

A well aimed cream pie here and there. Make sure your target is in on the joke or the tone in the room can drop to a hushed tension.

Sometimes the right expression seals the deal. Professional clowns know this technique well and have developed painted expressions that put their entertainee in the desired emotional mood.

Good clowns can be good fun. What is a good clown? Well, for certain, a good clown knows exactly what they are doing. Their seemingly clumsy behavior is indeed precisely calculated. It is an exact science, if you will, as it were.

All in all there is quite a bit to admire in such an individual. As a clown is indeed that, an individual that is. That is to say that there is little to suggest that clowns accidentally fall into their profession. It takes determination and great skill to become a successful clown in our day and age. For that, good clowns have my respect.

The bad ones? Well, I've never seen a bad clown really.

I've never liked clowns myself. I hate this one.

It's kinda weird, because clowns are sort of scary - Pennywise from "IT" was scary to me. But at the same time the classic italian clown act is in some ways very much the opposite of what Satanism is about.
You have the white clown, which is the refined aristocratic persona who tries to accomplish something artistic, like playing a musical instrument or something similar. And then you have the two who do all the funny stuff, I think they are called Augusts, which again is weird since "august" would be something refined and they are really caricatures of peasants.
So the fun is always at the expense of the character that we should actually be identifying with. But then again perhaps we find him funny because he is the one unable to be humerus about himself?

"Coulrophobia" is fear of clowns.

In some cultures, pagan gods have human heads; but sometimes, instead, they look basically human, but with colored skin - yellow, red, blue. Shiva the Destroyer is the ultimate clown.

You see! This clown I don't mind a bit, he's closer to his TRUE nature!
