Why, I'll tell you who that clown is...

That clown you see up there?

That's none other than Sabrina Duncan, one of Charlie's Angels. She's known in real life as Kate Jackson:

Sabrina went undercover as a clown in episode # 54, Angels Ahoy.

Hats off to Cormac Brown for seeing behind the greasepaint and recognizing Ms. Jackson. An honorable mention goes out to Megan for remembering the episode where the Angels went undercover as clowns. There were actually two clown episodes.

The other episode that featured a clown Angel was episode # 24, Angels on Ice. In that episode Kris (Cheryl Ladd) goes undercover as a skate clown:


Now, in a spirit of public service, I'd like to offer a brief guide to clown identification:


John Wayne Gacy, the original "killer clown".

Homey D. Clown (Damon Wayans)

Krusty the Clown, alongside Homie the Clown

Jerry Lewis (from his never-released movie The Day the Clown Cried, about a clown who gets sent to a concentration camp in Nazi Germany).

Red Buttons

Happy trails.

Hilarious post.

Poor Kate Jackson, I hope she wasn't insulted by my Red Skelton guess

This makes my skin crawl...

I may have nightmares tonight.

Ugh, I forgot about that Cheryl Ladd clown-episode.

As if a cavalcade of clowns wasn't bad enough, you HAD to show that pic of Carrot Top with his pubes showing, didn't you? Arrrggghhh my eyes!

No, no, Jaclyn Smith worked with the lion tamer and wore a sexy outfit and Cheryl worked with the knife thrower and wore a sexy outfit. Kate was the "ugly" angel so she got stuck with the clown suit.

At least that's my memory. I swear I didn't go looking anything up.

Ok that's kinda scary I'll go away now...

Where's Bush? No list of clowns is complete without him.

I feel like a jerk. I suggested she was John Wayne Gacy!

And wouldn't you know - back in the day, I always had to be Sabrina (Kate Jackson) when the neighbor kids played Charlie' Angels because I was a brunette.

are you the only person with a picture of JErry Lewis from that movie!

Holy god, that's a lot of fucking scary clowns.

Thanks so much for this handy guide, though!
