Today marks The Joker’s birthday and what better way to celebrate than to enumerate all the actors who had the unique opportunity to portray as the Clown Prince of Crime.
The following personalities are known to have portrayed The Joker as well as made an indelible mark of the character into various popular media.
In birthday parties, it’s usually a habit to invite a clown. This time, however, is a day that commemorates one of the most iconic clowns in popular culture – The Joker.
It was in April 25, 1940 when The Joker initially appeared in the comic book debut for Batman. Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson was said to be responsible for designing the Joker but it was Bill Finger’s writing that brought character to life. The Joker was supposed to be killed off in that issue but editors decided to spare the villain which, eventually, led him to become Batman’s arch nemesis.
