The oldest clowns appeared during the fifth Dynasty of Egypt around 2400 BC
The oldest clowns appeared during the fifth Dynasty of Egypt around 2400 BC. Unlike court jesters, clowns traditionally played socio-religious and psychological roles, with the roles of priest and clown traditionally held by the same person. Peter Berger writes, “Stupidity and foolishness, like religion and magic, seem justified in satisfying some deep-seated needs of human society.” As a result, clowns are often considered an important part of training. As a sports performance discipline, partly because it can tackle tricky subjects, but also because it requires a high level of risk and performer performance. In anthropology, the term “clown” has expanded to include similar clown or fool characters in non-Western cultures. Societies in which such clowns play an important role are called clown societies, and clowns with religious or ritual abilities are called ritual clowns. Have a look at our large featured clowns sculpture, the shape of this clown is really very realistic.

The modern clown is closely related to the circus clown tradition
Modern clowns are closely related to the tradition of circus clowns, which developed from early comic characters in plays or variety shows in the 19th and mid-20th centuries. The recognizable character features quirky costumes, unique makeup, colorful wigs, exaggerated shoes, and colorful clothes, in a style often designed to entertain large audiences. The first mainstream clown character was created by Joseph Grimaldi, who also created the traditional whiteface makeup design. In the early 1800s, he expanded the role of clowns in the clowns that formed part of English pantomime, particularly at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, Sadler’s Wells, and Covent Garden theatres. He was so dominant on the London comic scene that the harlequin was known as “Joey”, while other clowns still use that nickname and Grimaldi’s whiteface make-up design. Comedy by clowns usually plays the role of a fool whose everyday actions and tasks become extraordinary — and for him, ridiculous things become ordinary in a short time. This style of comedy has a long history in many countries and cultures around the world. Some writers argue that because of its widespread use and long history, this kind of comedy is part of the human condition.
