Chicagoist is featuring interviews with clowns

The Chicagoist, an online news blog, is featuring interviews with clowns all this week, in honor of Halloween.

The series, called FACE YOUR FEARS, is intended to get to know people behind the greasepaint.

It’s pretty good, as far as it goes, but nearly all of the clowns interviewed are Primarily Birthday Party clowns and not circus clowns.  Who knows, maybe Jeff Jenkins of the Midnight Circus  is the last person interviewed (their Friday interview has not yet come out).  That might give this a little balance.

UPDATE:  They balanced it in a different way– the fifth interview was with LezBobo the Clown, who does more alternative clowning.  I’ve updated this post to reflect that.

Here’s links to the interviews:
