With the announcement of the closure of both The Big Apple Circus and Ringling Bros & Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth circus, and in the wake of the 2016 Creepy Clown sightings, Eric Dwinnells and guest co-host Jennie "Blades" Lecesse are going to discus clowns. Why are people (allegedly) afraid of clowns and where did this for come from? Eric has a theory and it involves serial killers and after school specials! Plus, we'll hear from a real-deal professional circus clown (Jessi Wonderfool) to get her opinion on the fear clowns.
Specifically, we'll discuss:
John Wayne Gacy
The 1981 Phantom Clown Scare
Stephen King's IT
The Northampton Clown
The Rosehill Cemetery Clown video
The world-wide 2016 clown sightings/pranks and the aftermath
Plus Eric defends the good, honest, hardworking clowns from the street to the big top! All this and more on tonight's Spooky A S!
