Introduction
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!

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.

What a great guy. We had a big event with about 70 kids and Charlie was amazing with them. He was so fun even the adults got involved. He made balloon animals, walked around on stilts and engaged everyone with his plate spinning talent. I wil hire Charlie again and definitely recommend him to anyone looking for some entertainment at their party or event. He was really great and reliable. You can tell he loves kids and what he does. He can put a smile on anyones face.

Details: Festival / fair • 151 - 200 guests • 4 - 6 years old • 7 - 10 years old • 11 - 14 years old • Simple balloon twisting (e.g., one-balloon dog) • Face painting is not needed

This was our first time booking Charlie the Clown for our twins 5th bday and it was the best experience! All the kids and even adults had so much fun. Charlie made their birthday extra special! I saw Charlie at our friend’s bday party and I knew right away we have to have him at our kids party. He has all tricks, ballon twisting, funny jokes, playing with fire and all kind of performance you could imagine! Hire him!
