In the Grand Tradition of Chuckles's Death, No Laughing Matter

by Ken Houghton

Some jobs (keyboardist for the Grateful Dead, lead guitar for The Pretenders, etc.) are legendary for their relatively high mortality rate. (See This is Spinal Tap for the parodic version.)

Add to the list: Circus Clowns performing in Cucuta, Colombia
Two circus clowns have been shot dead during a performance in the eastern Colombian city of Cucuta, police say....

Last year, a prominent circus clown, known as Pepe, was also shot dead by a unknown assailant in Cucuta.
