I don't think we should have Real Life examples for this trope. It seems too common. Like it says in the real life folder, "Any traditional circus clowns" fall under this trope. Fictional examples of this trope are noteworthy because most fictional clowns are evil, but if every Real Life traditional clown follows the rules that clowns are supposed to, that's hardly worth talking about. That's why John Wayne Gacy was so scary - he was probably the closest we'll ever get to a real Monster Clown.
