In my opinion sluggo children are not afraid of pro clowns, they are not scary. Its the amateurs who do not entertain the children they scare them. Unfortunatly parents dont want to pay out for a pro and children end up being scared of clowns.
Actually many people are afraid of clowns, pro and amateurs. It is a real phobia. So to say its not real....
I know people of different ages that are afraid of clowns on some level.
I am not scared of them, I just dont find most of them amussing. I have only found a few clowns that I truely enjoy in action.
perform in a Circus once a year and there will be thousands of people there over three days. I've NEVER had anyone run off or act afraid. So saying a high % is a stretch.
That probably because those people dont go to those shows very often.
Lots of people are afriad of snakes, but while working at the local rattle snake round up, I see very few people running out. Mostly because, those who are afraid arent going to come see the show. Just because you dont see them, doesnt mean they dont exist.
