“A comic performer, as in a circus, theatrical production, or the like, who wears an outlandish costume and make-up and entertains by pantomiming common situations or actions in exaggerated or ridiculous fashion, by juggling or tumbling, etc.”

  1. May also be used as a definition of a politician.

  2. Teacher: define politics.

    Student: my parrot swallowed a watch and now Polly ticks.
