Frequently Asked Questions
I'm afraid of clowns!
That's because you've been exposed to the wrong kind of clowns! Pop culture today has really put a damper on a wonderful art form, and we urge you to take a risk if you have a background of coulrophobia. We try our best to be friendly and respectful if some have unusual difficulty in an encounter with one of our performers.
What does a Clown Nashville clown do at an event?
Primarily, our clowns are "area performers", which simply means they roam around your event space, interacting with patrons. Depending on the performer, you may find yourself with a clown that specializes in juggling, tumbling, or simply making faces!
Do your clowns talk?
It depends on the character. In theatrical vernacular, the red nose is considered a mask. When a mask fully covers one's face, the actor/wearer is not supposed to speak and use only their body to express themselves. A red nose and makeup is a different kind of mask, as it only covers the nose of the wearer, meaning the opportunity to speak is possible. Most clowns choose to remain silent, and our mimes, of course, do not speak. We think it's kinda creepy when clowns talk unless it really fits with the character.
But what about creepy makeup and the costumes?!
Our clowns take their sense of style from the oldest of European traditions. Our clowns are typically traditional whiteface clowns with simple makeup and costuming. The photos around our website should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. No "Bozo"s here!
What kind of performers are available to hire?
Currently, we offer clown and mime performers. Should you be in the market for aerialists, jugglers, or other circus performers, we'd be happy to re-direct you to other local performers.
I want to become a clown! Any advice?
We're always looking for new members of our troupe. Audition for one of our shows or give us a shout on our contact page to learn more!
