World Clown Association

Welcome to the wonderful world of clowning. We love to bring happiness, joy and fun to children of all ages. We have members who visit hospitals, nursing homes and hospice residences. We have other clowns to bring fun to birthday parties for kids and even senior citizens. Many of our clowns do educational programs in schools on topics like safety, promotion of reading, science, and even “No Bullying” and character development. We love to hear laughs and we hope you have a happy day

Our Purpose

The World Clown Association exists to serve the needs of the members of the Association, to serve the needs of local affiliate clown alleys, and to promote the art of clowning throughout the world.

Emmett Kelly Sr. Said

“By laughing at me, the audience really laughs at themselves and realizing they have done this, gives them sort of a spiritual second wind for going back into the battles of life.”
