Jeffery McMullen

“Wisconsin’s Super Santa”
Appleton, Wisconsin
1959 – Current

International Santa Claus Hall of Fame – December 2023

As a small boy, Jeff decided he wanted to perform and set a goal to become a clown in the Ringling Brothers Circus. RB Clown College accepted Jeff upon graduation from high school and ultimately toured with the circus. Then, he helped start the RB Clown College in Japan.

After the circus, Jeff established careers as a solo and corporate clown performer, standup comedian, corporate inspirational/motivational speaker, performed for princes and presidents, all the while keeping his faith strong and focusing on helping his fellow man with a gift of laughter, kindness, and generosity.

Jeff found time to complete work on a master’s program and began teaching speech at one of Wisconsin’s universities. With his talent and performance base established, Jeff started investigating Christmas character performance. He identified who his Santa character was going to be before ever putting on a Red Suit. Complete character development is a strong tool in Jeff’s bag. Jeff performs hundreds of clown and Santa events each year, is a presenter at numerous Christmas character workshops and schools and is the founder of Kringle University.
