About Me

I have had a very varied career and only alighted on the notion of entertaining children a couple of years ago. In that short space of time I have established myself as a No. 1 Children's Entertainer, winning the coveted Golden Nose of Montrose after my first year. My act is wholly original and was developed in my hospital treatment room as a way of calming children frightened of needles.

I studied medicine for six years and gained a doctorate in surgery from Edinburgh University. My love of surgery came from my parents who were both leading health service practitioners (my father died of heart failure 18 months ago, the same day in fact that I announced to him that I was leaving the medical profession to become a children's entertainer).

Most people don't see it, but there are many similarities between surgery and clowning: a steady hand, nerves of steel and protective clothing are needed in both professions. Now that I have swapped my scalpel for a custard pie I can see that the precision, split-second timing and blood-stemming techniques I learned all those years ago can be brought to bear on my current profession.

Book me today and I will be punctual, polite, and will tidy up after myself. Please allow me 10 minutes before the 'performance' to get scrubbed up, but once inside the theatre my concentration will never falter. There is a waiting list for my services but all patients will be seen in due course. Thank you.

Mr Jolly's Joke Generator

Why did the clown have a red nose?

Because his blood vessels had dilated due to telangiectasia (or because he'd developed rhinophyma - an enlargement of the sebaceous glands brought on by massive alcoholism!)

Why did the doctor leave his job?

Because he fancied a career change. There was no disciplinary!

A horse walks into a bar. The barman says, ‘Why the long face?’

Because his blood vessels had dilated due to telangiectasia (or because he'd developed rhinophyma – an enlargement of the sebaceous glands brought on by massive alcoholism!)

Knock, knock.

- Who’s there?
Doctor.
- Doctor who?
I have identification. I’ve not been struck off.

What’s the difference between a doctor of medicine and a children’s entertainer?

About £80k a year.

How many doctors does it take to change a light bulb?

One, unless the bulb shatters and severs the radial artery. In which case, a second doctor will be required to stem the bleeding and perform corrective surgery.

Why did the doctor cross the road?

Hard to say really. Could be any number of reasons.
