Topic: Your favorite clown or circus jokes?
Message: Posted by: Kerry Kistler (Feb 13, 2006 09:53PM)
Hi gang,
I am developing 6 new shows with a circus/sideshow theme. These shows will be used for family groups and youth camps for the Salvation Army. Six hours of material is a lot of material. Each show is focusing on one main area of circus life: sideshow freaks, wire walkers, lion tamer, clowns/hartford fire, circus family life, etc.

My scripts, routines, music and equipment are coming together pretty well. But as I write the ventriloquist routines I could use some more humor and jokes. Would you be willing to share a few of your favorites. Anything circus or sideshow is fodder for the cannon. I have exhausted my searching on the internet and come up with very little. Remember, these are family shows so they should be in good taste.

Thanks and cheerio,

Q: Why did the clown cross the road?
A: To find his rubber chicken.

Why won't cannibals eat clowns? Because they taste funny.


Said the circus manager to the human cannon ball, "You can't quit! Where will I find another man of your caliber?" (Drum: "Ba-da-BOOM")


How do you get a retired clown off your porch? Pay him for the pizza.

Why was Sunshine the clown staring at an orange juice can? Because it said "Concentrate."

Why can't clown noses be 12 inches long? Because then they would be a foot.

Why did Rainbow the clown eat a dollar bill? It was her lunch money.

Why was Sparkle the clown holding a mirror in front of her face with her eyes closed? She wanted to see what she looked like when she was sleeping.

Why did Silly Willy hold his ears when he walked by the hen house? He didn't want to hear the fowl language.

What is the pink stuff between an elephant's toes? Slow clowns. (I love this one!!)

Why did the clown wear loud socks? So his feet wouldn't fall asleep.

Why did the elephants get thrown out of the circus pool? Because they kept dropping their trunks.

How do you catch a circus elephant? Hide in the high grass and make noises like a peanut.

Why are circus performers called artists? Because they can draw crowds!

Why did the lion eat the tightrope walker? He wanted a well-balanced meal!

Which circus performers see the best at night? The Acro-Bats

What happened to the kid who ran away with the circus? The police made him bring it back.

Why did the elephant quit the circus? He was tired of workig for peanuts.

Did you hear about the fire at the circus? It was in tents! (Intense! Get it! Well, if I have to explain it to ya...)
