High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The image of the evil clown is a development in Western popular culture, in which the playful trope of the clown is rendered as disturbing through the use of horror elements and dark humor. The concept of the evil clown is related to the fear of clowns, known as coulrophobia. The cultural critic Mark Dery has theorized the postmodern archetype of the Evil Clown in "Cotton Candy Autopsy: Deconstructing Psycho-Killer Clowns" (a chapter in his cultural critique The Pyrotechnic Insanitarium: American Culture on the Brink). Tracking the image of the demented or deviant clown across popular culture, Dery analyzes the "Pogo the Clown" persona of the serial killer John Wayne Gacy; the obscene clowns of the neo-Situationist Cacophony Society; the Joker (of "Batman" Fame); the grotesque art of R.K. Sloane; the sick-funny Bobcat Goldthwaite comedy "Shakes the Clown"; Stephen King's It, and the graphic novel Arkham Asylum.
