Frederick Forbes is a renowned comedian, who works under the alias of The Joker.

Wearing white make-up and a green wig, Forbes incarnates a funny clown on television, who is too similar to the Earth-One criminal the Joker. When Batman from Earth-One spotted Forbes in his make-up, he assaulted him believing him to be the Joker and took him to the GCPD Headquarters, where he finally realized his mistake.

Even though other versions of the character may have appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
