Humour instead of horror:

the positive work of "RED NOSES"

VIENNA - The character of the clown is complex. RED NOSES International focuses on the positive and humorous side of clowning, while the clown in Stephen King’s film “IT” frightens people and shocks audiences in the cinema.

However, Stephen King is also aware of the role of hospital clowns and confirmed this to RED NOSES, “The great majority of clowns are good. They make well children laugh and cheer sick children up. I salute their work.”

“We are aware of the hype around films like ‘IT’, so we asked ourselves how would a clown react?” explains Giora Seeliger, founder of RED NOSES in Austria and nine other countries, “The answer was quite simple - with a wink”.

RED NOSES is at ease – the true mission of a hospital clown is to create affirmative emotions in others. “By providing patients with support through hope and happiness, our professional clowns rely on their many years of training to pursue one of the highest forms of art there is,” Seeliger emphasized, “we promise we will continue as before.”

The clowns from the RED NOSES Group visit over 700,000 patients in hospitals and people in crises every year because moments of fortune and joy strengthen resiliency and vitality.
