Whether you have been performing as a holiday entertainer for 30 years or this is your first season, we are confident that you will learn things from us that you have never been taught before. Entertaining in today's politically correct cancel culture can cause a lot of unneeded stress that can hinder your performance which is why our training program prepares you for almost any situation that could arise.


We pride our training program on the personalized experience that we provide our students. Therefore, we have a maximum amount of students per class to allow each clown individual performance time. 


⭐ INCLUDED: North Pole Handbook (HOLIDAY EDITION) that will help guide you through your virtual performance arts education. It contains 20+ pages of information, pro-tips, and tools!*


As a "Thank You" and to make you an even more wonderfully magical performer, you'll RECEIVE A FREE IMPROV E-COURSE WHEN YOU ENROLL!


*BONUS!* Also included when you enroll is 365-days of FREE access to The Clown Lab's private Facebook group where you can network and continue your learning with other students and our instructors.



All of our instructors have been in your shoes before. We had a passion for clowning and decided to take the leap and further our clown arts education, just like you! You’re not alone! We understand firsthand how nerve-wracking it feels to allow yourself to be vulnerable and begin your clown journey. Our clownologists are made up of professional clowns that have worked in the industry for over the last decade.
