Coulrophobia's really common and it's easy to see why. There is some very dark about clowning.I blame the Circus for my Coulrophobia (irrational fear of clowns)
When I was about 8 or 9 . . . I went to the Circus . . . watched the Lion Tamer . . . the Horse Riders . . . the Trapeze Artists . . .
Then out came the Clowns . . .
They asked for a volunteer from the audience . . .
My cousin raised his hand . . .
And one of the Clowns cut his head off!
Been scared of them ever since
