Oh yes, there are a number of clowns in the Punch & Judy community. Justin Tai comess immediately to mind.
Then there's Ron Wood in North Yorkshire who works as Chuckle. Then there's Bo, Bobbo and Jolly Jingles to name a few more.

Justin and Bo


Then there was the famous Ron (Smokey Townsend) who worked Broadstairs beach in the 1950s.

I think you should concentrate on doing the show. Being a clown at the May Fayre is a full time job. You will, however, get opportunities to speak to the clowns that attend and make useful contacts and get good advice. I would only suggest going as a clown if you do not intend doing the show and I think that more people should see what you can do with your puppetry. Happy New Year! Geoff.

It occurs to me that most Punch men also have an additional skill which allows them to extend their show or adapt it for different audiences and circumstances. I suppose magic and balloon modellng are the most common. I have also seen jig dolls performed, and more than one performer plays a musical instrument - guitar or accordion. It would be interesting to know the range of additional skills that are employed alongside Mr Punch's antics. So if you do rope spinning or paper tearing or whatever do please let us know.
Come to think of it, this should be a new topic so please reply, not here, but under "Allied Activities" on Punch Chat.
