The people pay, and they want to laugh.\\

your pain and sobbing into a funny face Ah!\\\
Laugh,

** This was also brought up in the episode "Tellow Subterfuge" when Krusty's supervisor asks him why he had become a clown. He simply responded with that he was meant to be one of the sad ones.

** Homer is a pretty good example of this trope. Though he's usually fairly exuberant, he's attempted suicide at least three times in the series, and is often shown to be insecure about the way he looks and has a ''lot'' of stress related to his job.

* ''VideoGame/DontStarve'' has Wes the Mime, who is a helpless JokeCharacter in a DeathWorld. His special power is blowing balloons that can be used to distract hostiles... but each balloon eats into Wes's SanityMeter, presumably because he's so depressed.

* Sean O'Cann of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', to which the above quote applies almost perfectly. Prior to the point in the game (Day 3) that he found out his best friend, boy friend, and cousin died (three different people, before anyone says anything) he still cracked a joke every now and then. Afterward though, Sean begins making all sorts of remarks, not all of which are in the best taste, and sometimes are [[DudeNotFunny just plain offensive.]]

* Evan in ''WebVideo/EverymanHYBRID'' is the most affected by the SanitySlippage caused by the group's dealings with [[TheSlenderManMythos the Slender Man]] and other assorted problems; he also tries to lighten pretty much every situation, cracking jokes while exploring creepy abandoned buildings or even while dealing with a monster literally hiding in a closet at a friend's house. The latter is likely the best example of his humor backfiring for those around him, as he pulled this after said monster violently assaulted his friend's brother.

* RussellBrand. He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had bulimia as a child. He also used to have terrible cutting incidents and numerous addictions. As he himself puts it, "My biggest problem is that I have lived an autobiography rather than a life."

* Most Ambulance crews are the same way for similar [[{{Gorn}} reasons as crime-scene clean up crews]] and, due the nature of their services, they are always dealing with people who are having bad days.

* Creator/PeterSellers is a particularly famous example, so much so that a book and film ''The Life and Death of Peter Sellers'' was devoted to this.

* In a literal example, a fire at the Hartford circus in 1944 killed 167 people. The tragedy is often called "The Day The Clown Cried" (not to confused with the [[Film/{{TheDayTheClownCried}} infamous movie).]]

* Sasame flirts ([[JustForPun heh]]) with this trope in the manga version of ''{{Pretear}}''. He's ''constantly'' flirting with the main character and teasing the other knights, and at first it seems like he takes NOTHING seriously... but several scenes hint that he's not quite as much of a jokester as it seems. This particularly comes into play when [[spoiler:he reveals he was in love with the BigBad in the past]], and you consider what happened to the ''anime'' version because of that...
