I think the character and prop will give you the chance to create a really comedic story, and also you might want to think about why the clown is in a factory. It could be a toy clown that is being produced by the factory rather than a person dressed as a clown?
I've always found clowns terrifying, so I would look at what type of clown this is going to be. If you want it to be a good, innocent, sweet-hearted clown, or a malicious and evil one, you could get two very different story ideas just from his/her/it's personality.
