Frequently Asked Questions
So, like...clowns. Yikes.
What? You're afraid of clowns? That's because you've been exposed to the wrong kind of clowns! We're not surprised, however, as the media often warps the beauty and potential of clowning. We urge you to take a risk and, if you have a background of coulrophobia, we try our best to be friendly and respectful if guests or clients have unusual difficulty in an encounter with one of our performers.
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!
Do your clowns talk?
Depends on what you want. In theatrical vernacular, the red nose is considered a mask. 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's appropriate.
What does a Clown Nashville clown do at an event?
Our clowns are "walkabout performers", which simply means they roam around your event space, interacting with guests. We pride ourselves on sophisticated and fantastical characters (which means no balloon animals, water pistol gags, or hula-hoops) that bring an elegant flare to your events.
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!
