Diary of a Wimpy Kid Wiki

Clarence Cluster is an actor who appears in No Brainer.

To combat rampant cheating, the school brings in Clarence Cluster, a man who started cheating in middle school and ruined his whole life as a result.

While many students seem to be shaken by him, Greg Heffley says that he is 90% sure that Clarence is actually an actor that was brought in to scare them, as he remembers him performing in the dinner theater his family attended over the summer.[1]

He also performed in an assembly called “Living Presidents” and later ate in the cafeteria while dressed as Abraham Lincoln. Greg thought this broke the spell of his performance.


  • Clarence's theater performance appears to be a rendition of "Be Our Guest", a song written by lyricist Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken for the 1991 animated Disney film Beauty and the Beast, with Clarence dressed up as Lumière, the candelabra.
  • Greg doubts that Clarence Cluster is his real name, believing it to be a stage name for the cheating persona. However, it is not confirmed if this is the case.
