Clayton Fletcher, known for his witty banter, fun-loving demeanor, and of course his other job as a professional comedian, is known as The Joker among live tournament players. But recently the online community is finding The Joker, known as “claytoncomic” online, hard to ignore as well! Playing on Cake Poker, Fletcher has racked up an impressive five major cashes, including two final tables, in the past month alone.
Clayton Fletcher is a member of Team Cake and he has proudly represented his favorite poker website at The Aussie Millions, The World Series of Poker, and The Playboy Mansion. Fans who are interested in following claytoncomic more closely may enjoy the link below.
It was announced today that Clayton “The Joker” Fletcher will be among the thousands of poker players expected to converge upon the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas this Summer. The 2010 World Series of Poker, which features the best poker players from around the world fighting it out among each other and a seemingly infinite number of gifted amateurs, takes place May 28th–July 17th.
This will mark Fletcher’s third year participating in the WSOP.
Every Sunday, Cake Poker hosts a $100,000 Guaranteed Tournament with a first prize of at least $20,000.00. On the April 11 edition of this event, our favorite funny guy took Third Place out of a field of 736. It was the first major online final table for Clayton Fletcher, known online as “claytoncomic.” Fletcher received $8,900.00 for his Third Place finish in this event.

After beginning the second event of the North American Poker Tour’s inaugural season at an extremely tough table that included Hoyt Corkins, John D’Agostino, and Eric “Peechy Keen” Liu, Clayton Fletcher was moved to a table of unknowns. Twenty minutes later, The Joker was bagging his chips in preparation for action on Day Two of the Main Event at Mohegan Sun.
Day Two found Fletcher on the short stack. Very early he managed to get it all-in with pocket fours versus Shawn Buchanan’s QT. A ten on the flop found the 2007 WPT Mandalay Bay champion chipped up and The Joker heading for the exits.
Fletcher is excited to play more events on the NAPT later this year.

Things never really got going for Clayton “The Joker” Fletcher at the Crown Melbourne this week. Starting with a chip stack of 20,000, Fletcher took a bad beat early which knocked him down to 8,000. Getting rivered in a blind versus blind confrontation a few hands later brought the stack down to a modest 3,200. And getting that stack all-in preflop three ways with blinds of 150/300/25 holding 44 versus A9 and KQ did not work out well either once the king finally showed up on the river. All in all, a disappointing day on the felt for our favorite funny guy at the tables.
The Joker will next play in Event #20 here in Melbourne after a weekend of performing at The Last Laugh Comedy Club.

With his KK versus an unknown all-in player’s AA, Clayton Fletcher found himself in a rough position at The Borgata last week. Either he would nearly double up (with a lot of luck) or he would be crippled in the tournament after having run his initial 30,000 stack all the way up to 47,500. Alas, it was not in the cards as the aces held up and Fletch saw his stack dwindle all the way down to 5500. About twenty minutes later, aces struck again, this time versus The Joker’s AK, and again luck could not bail our hero out. He finished in 714th place out of 1017 players.
Here’s hoping for better poker news soon from Clayton Fletcher…
