There just wouldn’t be a Rodeo without the Rodeo Clown. They are used to distract the Bull just long enough for the Rider to get away. This is one of the most thankless jobs around. If they are successful at their job, know one pays much attention, except for the clowns antics. If they are not successful, a lot of people will get hurt. That is why they do such outrageous things in their performance. Some times risking their lives,unnecessarily. The list of reckless stunts they come up with, is endless.
