Andrew McConnell Stott, Dean of Undergraduate Education and English professor at the University of Buffalo, SUNY, has researched the idea of dark clowns and is considered something of an expert on the subject. Of the court jesters, he said, "The medieval fool was continually reminding us of our mortality, our animal nature, of how unreasonable and petty we can be." He also spe
