Jim Wells has joined Duffy’s Circus it has been revealed today.
The circus was looking for a new clown and advertised the position widely but when they met Wells, he was the only clown for them.
A Duffys Circus spokesclown told Newry Spud:
“We are delighted to welcome Clown Jim on board. He has a natural funny looking head and face and he is naturally very humorous. Some of the stuff he says is hilarious.”
We spoke to Mr Wells and he said:
“Well, I know I am a clown so I saw an opportunity to get paid for being a total eejit in front of an audience. It’s a win – win for me and the circus. My clown name will be Jim The Gay Clown.”
