WHO CAN WE HELP?

WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET IN TOUCH?

A loved one has passed away

You’re helping someone organise a funeral

You’re planning your own funeral

An online gamer friend has passed away

STEP BY STEP.

How does it work?

STEP 1. GET IN TOUCH TO DISCUSS YOUR OPTIONS.

At this point we’ll discuss your event in general terms - dates, size, locations and cost.

STEP 2. WE COME UP WITH A CONCEPT.

If you already know what you want from your funeral event, we’ll simply iron out any issues and deliver your vision. If you’re not sure, though, we’ll come up with the whole ceremony for you. 
Please, check out our funeral ceremonies.

STEP 3. WE LINK UP WITH YOUR GUESTS.

How much do your funeral guests need to prepare? For a standard clown, of course, no preparation is needed; but we’ll need to link up with everyone to get ready for a cosplay funeral.

STEP 4. WE MAKE SURE WE’VE GOT EVERYTHING READY.

We’ll run through everything again before the funeral event - what’s going to happen, dates, invitations, and all the little details - to check we haven’t forgotten anything.

HAVE A HAPPY FUNERAL WITH FUNERAL CLOWNS

WHAT WILL IT LOOK LIKE?

These pictures might spark your imagination. They’re taken from similar concepts carried out in the US and Germany. As yet, we have very few pictures of our own concepts; our clients haven’t agreed to have photos of their events published, and we don’t want to pressure anyone into giving us permission.

Farewell, however, can be very fragile and intimate. See our funeral ceremonies.

DOUBTS?

ISN’T IT A BIT WEIRD?

Who leaves a party without saying goodbye to the host? Life’s a party and your family and friends are the hosts - so it’s really sad that over half of all funerals take place without a reception. Funerals without receptions just prolong the suffering of those left behind.

HOW DO I KNOW WHETHER THIS IS RIGHT FOR ME?

You like a laugh. You’re modern. You’re daring. You’ve already imagined your funeral - and it was a party!

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY I’M WEIRD

You’re right! And maybe that’s why you’ve got to do it. So much has changed since the nineteenth century, and yet death has become more and more taboo.

WHAT WILL WE TELL THE CHILDREN?

This will help them process their loss. What’s more, crematoria and traditional funerals have a dismal atmosphere which frightens and derails children.

I CAN’T DECIDE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Try and imagine your own rites and imagine the songs you’d like to hear. Are you smiling?

OUR FUNERAL EVENT SERVICES (not only funeral or mourning clowns)

WHAT WE’RE OFFERING

We understand that the death of a loved one is an extremely individual experience.
That’s why we organise each funeral event individually.

FUNERAL CLOWN

Make your funeral event more cheerful.

starting from €600
including VAT

  • First of all, we agree what the clown is going to do. 
  • The clown will come and help alleviate your sadness. 
  • The clown could be at the funeral itself, or just at the reception. 
  • The clown could be dressed as the decreased. 
  • He could perform a short play about the departed. 
  • He could get involved in mourners’ speeches. 
  • He could play some funeral games with the bereaved. 
  • You could even do karaoke with your loved one’s favourite songs. 
  • Or the clown could just entertain the kids.

A FUNERAL EXPERIENCE

We’ll prepare an unforgettable goodbye.

starting from €1000
including VAT

  • Life’s a party and you shouldn’t leave a party without saying a proper goodbye.
  • We perform funeral ceremonies. They will help the mourners say goodbye and move on. 
  • We can provide a cosplay service, for example, with all your favourite characters. 
  • We can organise unconventional venues, like castles or concert halls, or even trams or military submarines. 
  • We can arrange for the deceased’s ashes to be scattered in their favourite places. 
  • We provide online streaming services for our funeral events. 
  • Short of cash? We support crowdsourcing. 
  • If you are reaching the end of your life on your own, but don’t want to be alone at your funeral, we can provide mourners.

ONLINE FUNERALS FOR GAMERS

Say farewell to a gamer in their favourite game.

UNDER DEVELOPMENT - NOT CURRENTLY OFFERED.

  • This is the kind of ceremony that the deceased has earnt: they spent thousands of hours on this game - often more time than with anyone else.  
  • Fellow gamers love it, because they’d never be able to address the loss of their friend without a proper goodbye. 
  • Fellow gamers would never come to a conventional funeral - perhaps because they’ve never seen each other in real life, don’t know any of the deceased’s loved ones, or even live on the other side of the globe. 
  • We can deliver an online farewell with a live ceremony, streaming directly to participants, showing the mourners through their browsers, or uploading the content online - to YouTube, for instance.

If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, don’t be shy! We can come up for everything for you.

DOES HAVING FUN HELP WITH THE MOURNING PROCESS?

WHY DO FUNERAL CLOWNS HELP?

Funeral Clown

THEY HELP MOURNERS BOND

A large amount of very different people come together for funerals. It’s not always easy to start meaningful conversations. Clowns help us to come to terms with the loss together and find things in common.

Funeral Clown

THEY HELP US EXPRESS OUR EMOTIONS

Grief can arouse a countless number of emotions. Sometimes words aren’t enough to express them all. Clowns can help you express what’s in your heart and head, even if you only manage to hint at it.

Funeral Clown

THEY CREATE JOY AND BEAUTY

Even when grieving, you can experience good moments - moments when you laugh or when your soul feels warm. When that happens, don’t reject it. Accept it. Remember that life will be good again.

Funeral Clown

THEY’RE GOOD FOR THE HEALTH

Self-expression eases stress and anxiety. It even releases chemicals which help protect against depression. The body relaxes, which even leads to lower blood pressure.

FUNERAL or mourning CLOWNS IN ANCIENT ROME

DO FUNERAL CLOWNS HAVE A HISTORICAL PRECEDENT?

Archimimes (funeral clowns) definition from Cyclopaedia

THEY WERE CALLED ARCHIMMES IN ANCIENT ROME

They took part in funerals and walked behind the coffins. The clowns were dressed as the deceased, even wearing a mask of their face, and copied their movements and behaviour.
