We May Be Facing a National Clown Shortage
Thinking of a career change? Maybe it’s time to look into clown college. Seriously.
We could be facing an actual shortage of clowns in the near future.
According to the New York Daily News,
membership at the country’s largest organization of clowns has been on a steady and rapid decline over that past decade or so. They say that membership at the World Clown Association has dropped from about 3,500 to 2,500 since 2004.
What happens is they go on to high school and college and clowning isn’t cool anymore…Clowning is then put on the back burner until their late 40s and early 50s.
