Introduction: **COVID-19 Prevention Precautions** Please note that I take safety and health very seriously. In order to be able to entertain and provide fun at this time, I am currently entertaining at smaller sized events that stick to one of the following precautions, with no exceptions: 1. Event is outdoors- (masks are still preferred anyway.) Or 2. If the event is indoors, all adults and kids who are old enough will wear masks. **At this time due to safety reasons and precautions against the spread of COVID-19 I am not offering face painting- But I am offering all other services including temporary tattoos which go on the arm.** **During all entertainment I am wearing a mask and using hand sanitizer frequently.** **I am also offering virtual interactive shows for kids, and balloon twisting classes over video. Contact me for details!** Joolie Bagoolie is a fun, silly, very approachable and not-scary clown entertainer who loves having fun at parties! I am a professional with a decade of theatrical training, and 9 years of experience entertaining kids at (thousands of) birthday parties, family events, schools, daycares, festivals, you name it! I have years of experience entertaining kids with interactive adventure shows, magic shows, puppets, balloon twisting, face painting, temporary tattoos, more. My team and I are also available to entertain as a: -Princess -Unicorn -Fairy -Non-scary witch We offer: - Interactive Adventure shows - Magic shows - Toddler shows - Puppets - Face painting - Temporary tattoos - Balloon twisting - the possibility of 2 or more entertainers at your event Interactive adventure show- Best suited for kids ages 4-8 This is not the kind of party entertainment where kids are sitting and watching passively- this is fully engaging, active and imaginative play! Kids will get the opportunity to go on a very silly adventure with Joolie Bagoolie- an adventure that involves imaginative movement games, magic, puppets, a parachute, and interactive storytelling, as the kids follow Joolie Bagoolie on a journey through a magical forest! These are about 45 minutes long and have room for customization based upon your child's interests and/or your party theme. Magic shows- This funny, silly, and highly interactive 30 minute magic show is great for kids ages 3-8. Joolie Bagoolie can only do the magic with the audience's help! Featuring a variety of magic tricks for a kid audience, and a friendly puppet! Puppet shows- I offer a variety of puppet shows and puppet making workshops through professional puppeteer Mr. Chris! He performs 30 minute puppet shows along with 30 minutes of either a puppet making workshop or balloon twisting. Choose from a variety of classic fairy tales, or stories with a princess, construction, or dinosaur theme. Mr. Chris' puppets are handmade and he has puppeteered with the Jim Henson Company, Disney, Nickelodeon, PBS, and many more. Balloon twisting- My designs incorporate multiple balloons and range from a wide variety of silly hats, to balloon pets (dogs, butterflies, giraffes, monkeys, bunnies, turtles, dinosaurs, dragons!), to pirate swords, fairy wings, unicorn horns, magic wands, and more! Face painting- For facepainting, I use hypoallergenic, professional quality face paints and paint fun, silly, cool, or elegant designs with sparkles. The sky is the limit- I really do paint anything a kid could want. I also incorporate a paint brush sanitization process whenever I am face painting. Temporary tattoos- I have a wide variety of temporary tattoos, and they are a great option for larger events with many kids, or for little kids, as they are quicker to apply than face painting. Toddler entertainment- Perfect for little ones ages 3 and below, I include puppets, singalongs with movements, dancing, a parachute and bubbles in a fun 30 minute mommy-and-me style show. Multiple entertainers- Looking for two face painters at your large event? A balloon twister and a face painter? A magician and balloon/face artist? Whichever combination you'd prefer- you can inquire about rates for two or more entertainers to come to your event. My talented team includes: Joolie Bagoolie Miss Yoyo - face painter, balloon twister, magic shows in Spanish We are always friendly and approachable, and never scary in appearance. Customized party entertainment based on your theme of choice is also available. For festivals and public events- ask about a different pricing structure for "pay-per-face". For public events only. Contact me for more details! **I also have liability insurance!** Making kids smile and laugh is one of the things I love about what I do! But not only that, I love to see kids' eyes light up as they come up with a brilliant, imaginative idea during one of my interactive shows! I love when the kids get opportunities to join in like this- it's active fun rather than passive fun! This engagement is what kids also really love about the kinds of entertainment I offer! Even with balloon twisting and face painting, I love to make it a fun experience with jokes and silliness!

Joolie was fantastic! She was on time and prepared. She kept the kids entertained right from the beginning and up until the end of the party.

Julie was absolutely incredible! From the easiness of hiring her and her going out of her way to work with our schedule, to the fantastic show she put on— five stars!!! The kids loved her show and balloon art! Would highly recommend :)

Julie was great with communication and the quality of her balloon work was awesome. My favorite was the wings I’ve never seen that with balloons. It was super cool. The kids also enjoyed their temporary tattoos. Thank you Julie for our party experience.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    If a magic show or interactive show is included within the booked time, the rate is $175 for the first hour of entertainment, and $120 for each additional hour. If face painting and/or balloon twisting, or a toddler show is booked, without a magic or interactive show, the rate is $140 for the first hour and $120 for each additional hour. There may be an additional travel fee of $20 depending on distance traveled and if tolls are crossed. *Please note that my rate is not negotiable.* What can be included in the booked time is dependent upon how many kids are at your event, the venue type, and other details about your event. We can discuss your party and figure out what entertainment would be the best fit and for how long. The minimum booking time is one hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, we will discuss what entertainment will work best for your event, and figure how much time is needed based on the number of kids in attendance. We'll also discuss the age range of the kids, and what kind of venue your event will take place in. Once we figure out the details, I will send over a basic contract you can fill out with info about your party, and digitally sign. The contract also details my cancellation and safety policies. Once it's filled out, a copy will be automatically emailed to both of us. I will also collect a deposit, typically via Venmo, Paypal, Cash App, or Zelle bank transfer. The remainder is due at your event via cash, check, or any of the mentioned options. Once I receive the contract and deposit, then your booking is all confirmed! I'll keep in touch with you leading up to your party date. On the day of your party, I will text you when I'm on my way, and I'll always arrive with enough time to set up.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been entertaining kids of all ages at all types of events since 2011, across New England, New York, and in London, UK. I am also a highly trained and experienced theatre artist with an MA in ensemble theatre, and have trained, taught, and performed locally and internationally.
