There are also “rodeo clowns,” usually in full face paint, who will work in pairs or sometimes in threes. In bull riding, for instance, rodeo clowns will move towards the bull, waving and yelling to attract the bull’s attention to themselves as soon as a bull rider dismounts or is thrown from the bull. Rodeo clowns do this so the rider can escape from the bull and get to safety. A very important job.
