According to WN, a rodeo clown is a rodeo performer who works in the bull riding competitions. The role of a rodeo clown was originally to provide a comic relief during the show as well as to protect the riders thrown from the bull.
However, currently, the role is split into other various categories in the USA: bullfighters who protect the riders from the bull, and entertainers, a barrelman and a clown, whose job is to provide comic humor.
Since they put their own lives at stake to protect the riders, they wear bright, loose-fitting clothes that are designed to tear away. They also have special protective gears underneath their costume.
