A Clown’s Code of Ethics

I will keep my acts, performance and behavior in good taste while I am in costume and makeup. I will remember at all times that I have been accepted as a member of the clown community only to provide others, principally children, with clean clown comedy entertainment. I will remember that a good clown entertains others by making fun of herself and not at the expense or embarrassment of others.
I apply my makeup in a professional manner. I provide my own costume. I always try to remain anonymous while in makeup and costume as a clown, though there may be circumstances when it is not reasonably possible to do so.
I will not drink any alcoholic beverage prior to any clown appearance. I will abstain from drinking alcoholic beverages while in makeup and clown costume. I will conduct myself as a lady, neither molesting nor interfering with other acts, events, spectators, or individuals.
I will remove my makeup and change into my street clothes as soon as possible following my appearance, so that I cannot be associated with any incident which may be detrimental to the good name of clowning. I will conduct myself as a lady at all times.
While on appearance in makeup and costume, I will carry out the directives of the producer or his designated deputies. I will abide by all performance rules without complaint in public.
I will do my very best to maintain the best clown standards or makeup, costuming, properties and comedy.
I will appear in as many clown shows as I possibly can.
I will endeavor to put as many smiles as possible on as many people as possible.
