Okay, so this is an opportunity for all you horror film connoisseurs. Always thought you could be the next Joker or Wrinkles? Maybe even a Pennywise? Well, now you can put it to the test and scare the hell out of people while making a pretty penny(wise).
A bespoke team building company is recruiting members of the public that resemble pop culture’s scariest clowns, Pennywise, Wrinkles and The Joker, to scare unsuspecting prank victims in a £100 an hour job role.
To celebrate Halloween, members of the public will be able to hire the clowns through TeamTactics.co.uk, to scare friends and/or family at their place of work, from the 28th to the 31st October.
Team Tactics is recruiting people who have the capabilities to play a convincing Pennywise, Wrinkles and Joker clown. For example, hopeful applicants must have a large forehead and high pitched voice to act as Pennywise, and be slim with a manic laugh to be recruited as the Joker. An acting background or training is not essential, however it is a bonus.
Costumes will be mailed to each hired clown, with Team Tactics looking to find 10 clowns across the UK to cover all major regions.
The job will see successful applicants creeping into places of work and scaring unsuspecting people, while in character as the clown they’re playing. The encounters will also be filmed for people to relive once they are over the initial scare.
You’ll be paid £100 per hour! Perks? Well, you get to scare the living daylights out of people for fun!
Tina Benson, managing director at TeamTactics.co.uk said,
“Halloween, although traditionally an American holiday, has soared in popularity in the UK over the years, and for good reason! It’s a fun celebration of all things spooky, and let’s be honest, lots of people love the adrenaline rush of being scared or the thrill of scaring a friend. So, we thought we’d introduce something that ticks both these boxes.
“We’re amazed at the massive demand we’ve had for the clown scaring service, we knew it would be popular, but there’s a lot of colleagues out there who can’t wait to see their work friend get spooked, and the best part? We’ll catch it all on camera! Now, all we need is some seriously scary clowns to help cater to all the requests we have, I encourage any person who can pull off a creepy clown to apply, it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Those who’d like to apply must provide a photo along with which clown they are willing to play and a short paragraph on why they’d make a good scary clown.

Interesting but could be distressing for some of those pranked though.
