Hey everybody, I'm Dottie Dot the clown! Clowns have a wonderful job, that job is to spread joy and happiness all over this great big world...it's what makes us tick, or is that ticklish? To put on smiles and make roars of laughter erupt from our audiences, small or larger, it doesn't matter, but the joy you feel when a clown is near is my mission.
