‘Clown doctors are expertly trained to bring humour and joy to the hospital wards across Tasmania, but it’s that genuine human connection that can lift families out of a distressing period of their lives and provide the magic tonic of laughter when it’s needed most. Their partnership with medical and healthcare teams turns a confronting environment into a warm and friendly one.’

The Power of Clown Doctors

Clown Doctors is The Humour Foundation’s flagship program – bringing joy, laughter, and connection to children facing illness and hospitalisation.

Our highly skilled team of dedicated performers engage, and uplift young patients and carers, while working in partnership with medical professionals to alleviate the emotional and psychological stress that often accompanies a child’s stay in hospital.

Through ongoing support, we can continue to improve the healthcare experience for children, carers and hospital staff across Tasmania, and all States and Territories of Australia.
