LAist Interview: Yucko The Clown

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

To prepare for this interview, I scoured my closet for my pair of unwashed lucky socks, put on some Dog the Bounty Hunter ondemand, and tried to ignore the fact that his girlfriend is "shnacky", as I like to say.
Yucko the Clown is a regular guest on "The Howard Stern Show", a stand-up comic, and the co-creator of The Damn Show later 'ported' to MTV2 as Stankervision. Currently he's touring with the Killers of Comedy, Bob Levy's pack of comics. You can also find him in a few comedy shorts on superdeluxe, and possibly parading around your town doing his infamous man on the street bits. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, he never washes his lucky clowny suit, he's antisemitic and racist, and his girlfriend couldn't land Ronald McDonald and that Brinks truck, yet Yucko was able to fill that clowny-void. He also filled ours.

LAist: How long does it take to get in your makeup?

Yucko: Only about 15 minutes! I’ve got it down to a friggin’ science now!

Is the airport screening process weird, with your briefcase of dildos and props?

They usually just say,” What are you doing with all these dildos in your bag?” I just fire back with, “I’m goin to work- YA PRICK!”

How is treating you?

Pretty damn good! It beats the shit outta TV because you can be uncensored, and do topical shit before its outdated.

When are you doing more man on the street bits (your bread and butter if you ask me)?

We are looking into more cities in the coming months…Places like Boston, Miami, etc.

What do you think of LA? & How are the crowds out there?

L.A is cool, the crowds are great, lots of energy and shit. We always have a great time during and after the shows.
