Thank you for visiting the Jolly Joeys Clown Alley website!

Who We Are:  The Jolly Joeys Clown Alley is a not for profit organization formed in 1995. 

Our Mission:  The Jolly Joeys Clown Alley promotes the Art of Clowning by sharing and supporting each other with educational opportunities that improve our clowning skills in order to serve our community by spreading joy and laughter through clowning.

The Jolly Joeys are a group of people from all walks of life and all ages that enjoy clowning around.  Some are employed, some are retired, some are students - all are professional clowns.  The alley is affiliated with the Texas Clown Association (Alley #19), World Clown Association, and Clowns of America International   

What We Do:

The Jolly Joeys provide entertainment in many forms.  They perform skits, sculpt balloons, paint faces, meet and greet, do parades, and "walk-around" entertainment.

What we cost:
The Alley's services are free to other non-profit organizations and charitable events.  However, donations are accepted to support the work of the Jolly Joeys.  Alley members are also available for "PAID" events such as grand openings, corporate picnics, etc.  A rule of thumb used is this:  if your event has a budget, and there will be other paid entertainment, the Jolly Joeys will appear for a donation.                                                             

When and Where we  Meet:

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month at the University United Methodist Church

5084 De Zavala Road San Antonio

Room 302-303 at 7:00 pm

(The alley is not affiliated with the UUMC)
