Professional Clowns are Losing Members

The Clowns of America International is the country’s largest trade organization and President Glen Kohlberger is worried because membership is declining fast. Membership in the organization has been on the down-swing since 2006. One problem is that older clowns are passing away and membership has drop from 3,500 to 2,500 in the past 10 years.

The other problem is young people aren’t interested in becoming a clown. Most members are over 40. According to Kohlberger, young people aren’t developing an interest in clowning when they graduate from high school or college anymore. Their interest doesn’t peak until they’re in their 40’s.

Even though a clown can make about $300.00 per birthday party, it’s not enough to get young adults interested in clowning.
