Boswick enlivened a birthday party we threw recently. He made all the children and adults laugh and kept the kids engaged for more than an hour. His balloon twisting skills are the best I have seen so far! He was genuinely interested in making sure everyone was having fun. He connected with the kids and was sweet enough to stay till the cake was cut and the songs were sung. Seems like a genuinely nice guy. Thank you Boswick for making the party so memorable!Nov 5, 2018Verified
Boswick did a magic-comedy and balloon art show for the kids for our Bring Your Kids to Work Day. We had a wide range of ages (between 1 - 11) but Boswick had all of them mesmerised. The kids had a great time. There was a lot of laughter and giggles! Some of the kids were quite outspoken but Boswick was a natural entertainer and took it all in his stride. Thanks for all the fun, Boswick, hope to have you again soon!Apr 27, 2017Verified
Boswick is FANTASTIC !!! He's funny, kind, patient with children and unbelievably talented with balloons. People loved him at our preschool party, parents and children alike. We asked him to stay an extra hour and he stayed even longer (to please his young fans). Boswick has even promised to come back as Ringmaster for our Halloween Party. We're ecstatic!Oct 19, 2017Verified
Boswick made my son's Birthday one of the best days! Kids and adults equally enjoyed his jokes, tricks, and magic. Entertaining a bunch of 8 year old boys can be quite a handful, but Boswick handled them really well, shifting from one joke to another, from one magic trick to the next. In the end, all the kids got balloons and tons of wonderful memories.Sep 15, 2019Verified
We hired Boswick for my daughter's 7th birthday party. The kids and the adults loved him! He kept them (and us) entertained and laughing hysterically. He made sure all of the children, especially the birthday girl, felt special. And everyone went home with a balloon creation. We highly recommend Boswick!May 15, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It's pretty basic. I charge $250 an hour. Birthday parties run over an hour.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I take classes constantly. Lately I've settled into classes with a theatre company called Fools Fury. This is very complex movement training. I fail a lot but love it. I also do a lot of improvisational comedy. It makes me very sharp when I perform. A few times a year I'll take an acting class. Acting is not how I make a living but I like that I can challenge myself as a performer.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I wanted to be a clown from the time I saw Bozo the clown when I was 5. My mother took me to see the show in San Jose. I always wanted to be a clown. I had the privilege of training at Ringling Brothers Clown college. I've had the privilege of doing this for a very long time.
