Send in the clowns

The Circus of Horrors blood-curdling freak show rolls back into Halifax starring a clown who is afraid of clowns - in real life!

Doug Child - Rellik the Psycho Clown- has suffered from Coulrophobia - an irrational fear of clowns - since childhood and eventually had to resort to hypnotherapy to make the part his.

“Other people had to apply my make-up and tell me what it looked like. The first time I saw myself I freaked out and washed it off.”

See how Doug (pictured front in this photograph) does for yourself on March 3 at the Victoria Theatre.

Welcome to the Carnevil - the latest incarnation of the hit show which achieved fame on Britain’s Got Talent - is set in Victorian London in 1899.
