Professor Crump – Clown | UK
Professor Crump is a wonder standing eight foot tall in his magnificent top hat. He has appeared extensively both in England and abroad in galas, theatres, TV, festivals and corporate events.
His character is well known in London having welcomed and entertained many visitors to famous landmarks – the Royal Albert Hall, Millennium Dome and at major events – London Marathon, Lord Mayor’s Show.
Equally he is popular abroad in countries such as Malta, Kuwait, Germany, Iceland and recently the VW annual ball in St Petersburg – Russia.
He quick-fires jokes from start to finish – manipulating his act on the spur of the moment to suit the mood. With a variety of unusual props and gags he rapidly builds up a humorous rapport with his audience aided by his stilt-bike, scooters, puppets, rubber chickens, a plastic dog, giant key and lots more.
Professor Crump first appeared in London park a stones throw from Charlie Chaplin’s birth place. His act then consisted of a toy dog which he insisted could jump through a hoop. Since then they have both jumped through many other hoops from children’s theatre productions to alternative cabaret, from circus to West End Shows.
He has appeared at many country shows, fetes, festivals, fairs, corporate fun days, promotional events, trade shows, themed parties, both in the UK and abroad.

”Just a quick note to say thank you very much for your help with the booking of Professor Crump at our event last night. The party was a great success and the Prof was the star of the show – he was hilarious and I was particularly impressed with his balloon modelling and juggling skills! I’ve attached a couple of pics of the event for you and would be most grateful if you could forward my thanks and appreciation for his entertainment.”
