Not a clown per se, but in one episode Kramer has a ventriloquist doll who at the end of the episode who appears to be alive and running around at night in Jerry's apartment. This takes place in season 8, episode 8.

Also a character called Crazy Joe Davolva dressed up as a clown and acts threatening toward a couple of people, including Kramer who is scared of clowns. This takes place in season 4, episode 9 called the Opera

There’s an episode (S5E10) where Jerry brings over to Elaine’s apartment a “cigar store Indian” statue and makes insensitive stereotypical jokes, not knowing that one of Elaine’s friends who’s over at the apartment is indigenous and she is rightfully extremely offended.

When Elaine finds a list of excuses Seinfeld came up with to get out of going to a game with someone, she pitches that Seinfeld tells the person that he’s been diagnosed with “multiple personality” (an outdated term for DID/OSD.) It’s not dwelt on but it’s still there
