Manitoba's Favourite Clown


Hello and Welcome!

My name is Charles Lauder and/or Sleepy the clown and I want to entertain YOU! I have been clowning around Winnipeg and Manitoba for the better part of twenty years. From Emerson to Churchill, and even on the other side of the world in Dubai. 

I am excited to bring my award winning balloons, my classic clown variety shows and general absurdity to your next festival, party or birthday today!


Who am I?

When I was 16, I met a clown minister touring western Canada, and I was hooked on the grease paint almost immediately.  I have been clowning around in one form or another ever since, more professionally since 2010. 

I have travelled to improve my skills with the World Clown Assocation, American Clown Academy and Clown Canada. Winning gold medals for my balloons and performing in 2019 and 2018. 

All this and more so I can entertain you and your party! 


A manitoba staple

I have appeared at the Fringe Festival, Manitoba Threshermen's Reunion, Red River Ex, Carmen Fair, teddyu Bear's Picnic, Museum of Human Rights, to name a few. 

Whether you need high energy stage shows, Maitoba's best balloon art or help putting on the best birthday party ever, I am your clown. Visit the balloon, show, or birthday pages for more information, or email and book your show time right now!

 "Sleepy the Clown you are so engaging and you interact with the crowd so well. The kids were laughing so hard I thought they would have stomach aches lol. We definitely would recommend you to anyone looking for group entertainment. All ages were thrilled with your act and your balloon art is out of this world!"
