Clown Daddy, also known as Ellie J, is an actress-turned-clown who has found her home in the wilds of the Catskills. An NYU Tisch honors graduate and a drop-out of the prestigious Lecoq clown school in Paris, her focuses are physicality, slapstick, and joy of the cathartic experience in live performance.

She has happily and humbly become a staple part of the Catskills artist community, bringing fun to as many audiences as she can. You can find what she's up to at
