The clown code of ethics - the seven clown commandments

1) I will keep my acts, performance and behavior in good taste while I am in costume and makeup. I will remember at all times to provide others with clean clown comedy entertainment. I will remember that a good clown entertains others by making fun of himself and not at the expense or embarrassment of others.

2) I will learn to apply my makeup in a professional manner. I will provide my own costume. I will 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.

3) I will neither drink alcoholic beverages nor smoke while in makeup or clown costume. Also, I will not drink alcoholic beverages prior to any clown appearances. I will not become involved in or tolerate sexual harassment or discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or any protected status.

4) 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 that may be detrimental to the good name of clowning.

5) 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.

6) I will do my very best to maintain the best clown standards of makeup, costuming, properties, and comedy.

7) I will appear in as many clown shows as I possibly can.
