Clowns International is an association for clowns.


Clowns International, formerly known as the International Circus Clowns Club was formed in 1947 by circus enthusiast Stan Bult.

The organization was formed following a tradition that started in the early 1940s by circus owner Billy Smart.

Every year clowns would renew their circus contracts, and Smart had the idea to mark the occasion by visiting Joseph Grimaldi’s grave in London.

Clowns were encouraged to visit and lay wreaths to pay respects to the father figure of the clown industry.

This tradition was repeated year after year until 1947 when Stan Bult decided to form Clowns International.

The idea was to unite clowns across the globe to share industry knowledge and to be able to network with circus folk.
