Allen The Balloon Man
Very positive and fun attitude with kids and adults. Second year in a row. Allen is truly awesome!Dec 7, 2017
Allen was terrific with the kids even though there were so many of them and he was thoughtful about making sure the really small kids didn't get so close that a balloon might pop by them. He made sure all the kids got multiple balloons and he was super friendly.Nov 21, 2017VerifiedAllen D.'s reply
Thank you for your review and for sharing some fun balloon photos. Thank you again for having me at the birthday party.

Q & A
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I subscribe to a website that adds balloon instruction tutorials monthly. I also buy balloon art DVD tutorials to learn new creations. I belong to several entertainer Facebook groups that teach me new balloon items and tips on being a good performer.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was a shy guy looking for an outlet in life. I started as a clown and did that for many years. Perhaps the clown make up & costume was a way of hiding feelings of being shy. Later in life, I decided to become a balloon man. I am currently a member of the World Clown Association and do clown like actions, but I just don't wear make up any more. The business has helped me over come some feelings of being shy (at least for my business life...I still might be a little shy out of costume).
- What types of customers have you worked with?Birthday parties, company picnics, business promotions, church picnics, wedding receptions, and much more!
