A new Coma adult education course will teach essential survival skills for sharply different environments.
Zombie Clown School will combine a longstanding course on the basics of clownsmanship with techniques to survive a zombie apocalypse.
“The clown stuff doesn’t bring ’em in like it used to and somebody mentioned that people are into zombies so I thought ‘What the heck,'” said Bob Smith-Smith, who teaches the course.
Smith-Smith, who performs as Spazzo the Clown, said he was surprised to find the two course activities have a lot in common.
“They’re both high pressure situations with frequently hostile interactions–except people do not usually try to eat performers,” Smith-Smith said.
The course elicited confusion from some adult education enthusiasts.
“Oh, I like clowns but what’s a zamby?” said Stan Bargmeyer, one of the oldest Coma residents.
Others were less supportive.
“There really is no more terrifying thought,” said Robert McGuiness. “Who thought it was a good idea to start letting that clown guy teach classes?”
But the class may not yet be done evolving. Smith-Smith is considering next adding fantasy role playing elements and vampire studies to the course.
“You need to stay relevant without becoming asinine,” he said.
