1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Down With the Clown", Way to Die #260, is the seventh death featured in "Deadliest Kitsch", which aired on October 24, 2011.


Funny Eddie, a circus clown with an axe to grind, stalks a horror-core hip-hop band called "Infernal Clown Posse" with threatening hate mail and plans to sabotage one of their concerts, believing that they give real clowns a bad name. Eddie, who decided threatening hate mail wasn't enough, rushes to the front row, but is knocked unconscious when one of the group members hits him in the head with a bottle of Faygo. After regaining consciousness a short time later, Eddie becomes enraged, runs backstage and goes to unplug their speakers. Still drenched in soda (which contains a high concentration of salt), Eddie gets electrocuted(most likely due to a short in the wires or improper grounding) and dies of a heart attack, sending the angry circus clown to hell. One of the members of Infernal Clown Posse to says to Funny Eddie, "It's the hater. He's... Dead." Then, they gloat "In Yo' Face" in the tune of their song to the now-dead Funny Eddie.

"As he made his way through the crowd, Funny Eddie stood out like a nun at a porn convention. He didn't know what he was going to do until...he got knocked cold by a bottle of soda pop. When Funny Eddie came to, his mission was clear: unplug these monsters and shut them down."

  • This death is slightly similar to Boys 2 Dead. After someone died, their group continued the concert (the difference is in this Death is that the dead aren't their members).


  • Revealing: After Funny Eddie ''dies'', he visibly blinks.
  • ICP's In yo face song was released in 2009, not 2008.
