A few clowns riding in an automobile with the Joker.[1]

A clown was a circus performer, jester or some sort of comedic entertainer that usually wore a costume and makeup. Some clowns even performed magic tricks, and would even tie balloons into the shape of animals.

The word clown was also used as a form of insulting language to describe someone who acted in such a manner.

For example, someone in a classroom at the High School that acts like a fool may be considered the "class clown."[2]
