Introduction: Yes I am doing a “social distancing” program. I finished high school and had lots of skills like juggling, magic plate spinning, fire eating, unicycle, balloon twisting, stilts, face painting........ I got drafted into the South African army but ended up in the entertainment unit. After my mandatory army service was done I got an offer to join a professional Circus in Europe and traveled for three years doing many different acts. After that I developed a juggling comedy act and that brought me to Las Vegas. I did the act with an American guy for over 10 years working numerous casinos, cruise lines and holiday resorts. I found out I can do better financially and also have more fun working kids birthday parties. This way I don’t have to travel and there’s a never ending supply of kids celebrating their birthdays. I really enjoy what I do, I worked for Circus Circus in the past, Disneyland but to be honest, I really enjoy doing personal parties. I think I have the best job in the world!

Clown Entertainment

Omg if I could hire Charlie the clown 🤡 for personal entertainment daily I would. I had a 45th circus theme birthday party 5/30/21, and boy did he deliver for adult entertainment! He was very fun, funny, professional and entertaining! I am still receiving phone calls about the awesome job he did. Clowns are for kids you say? Well I'm a big kid at heart and I am truly thankful for having him at my birthday party! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CHARLIE THE CLOWN FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN!!! Ps the value and punctuality were Fantastic!!

Balloon Twisting

Charlie came and did balloon twisting at our company picnic. He made a grand entrance on his stilts and continued the performance throughout the picnic. The things he can make out of balloons are amazing. My son could not get enough and we came home with at least 5 exceptional creations. Charlie even performed a little show that I think all ages enjoyed. He was professional in all ways and was always prompt in his replies. I would definitely hire Charlie again and would recommend him for a variety of events.
