A Swiss actor is carving out a new career as a sinister-looking clown - terrifying children's birthday parties.

a little creepy, but definitely a dream job

Great idea. Here's another one: let's hire a guy dressed up as Freddy Krueger to read kids bedtime stories.

It's the Zombie Clown Apocalypse!

Blood is red.
Bruises are blue.
Here's a cake in the face.
I'm stalking you.
Happy Birthday!

Must be another Stephen King fan ;-)

I'd hire him.

half the kids i knew when they were little were afraid of clowns to begin with. oh, this will help.

His best customers are parents who have already been visited in the past by the child protective service.

Happy Birthday to you
You will be terrorized!
I'll scare you to tears
(This was mommy's surprise!)

I've never liked clowns so if I were a kid this would be a nightmare for me. I think the texting that he's watching you and all is over the line. I agree with Dave about the years of therapy. And thank you Stephen King for increasing my fear of clowns. Although this would be a great idea for Mrs. King to do for his birthday.


or pennywise, whatever.

i'd hire him too.

Pennywise, Jeff. Sheesh ;-P

Maybe it's just me, but that photo somehow seems slightly LESS scary than your average clown. Maybe he's just trying too hard?

Sorry about that.

*belts Siouxie with cake, runs very fast*

Careful, Jeff. I'll have Punkin get ya back for me ;-P

And for Christmas, he dresses as Santa complete with a rifle and deer tags hanging from his belt.

He's a member of the band, Insane Clown Posse!

Brilliant business strategy. He gets paid in full and stops work when the kids become freaked out, which has to be in less that 5 minutes.

You little b!tch!
You want dispair?
You'll be aghast on the ground,
Me, I won't care...
Send in the clowns.

I'll make you piss.
Your fear I'll prove.
I will keep tearing around,
You who can't move.
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.

Then I will start opening doors,
Finally slamming the one in your face will be yours!
Making my entrance again with my devilish stare,
Texting my lines:
'...No one is there...'

Don't you love farce?
Me you will fear.
I want what you don't.
Scary, my dear???
But where are the clowns?
I love your big frowns!
It's ME You Will FEAR.

I must be getting old. I've lost my sense of humor. If this clown sent my child a scary text, I can promise you that it would be one of the last things he did before I pulled off his fingers and fed them to him. Why yes, I do read Stephen King too!

He's not near as scary as his partner, Poundfoolish...

Another possible nominee for SCOTUS.

Ronald's evil twin.

Yeah, they're scared now and in 5 years they will want to pay lots of money for the 3D movie. I wanted to be a cl...TMI.

At least we now know what was Vincent D'Onofrio's major malfunction.

*sorry...too dark*

Really an ugly joker!! I didn't like him.
