Special Services

Since certain children may find traditional clown make-up frightening. I can appear in minimalist make-up, or I can apply my make-up as a part of the show.. (no extra charge)

Phobia Therapy 

Certain children may have developed a fear of colourful characters and clowns. Often some of us grow into adulthood without addressing their childhood fear.  There are many gentle and kindly techniques for transforming these unrealistic fears into an oppurtunity for laughter and joy and healing. This is presently a free service .

Smile maker.
I am sometimes hired by child photographers for commercial shoots, to get the best possible reaction shots.

Clown-a-grams .

The gate crasher.
(Adult events for evenings only)
Wiltered Walter the weary hobo makes an inebriated
appearance at your special event. Looking much the worse for wear, Wilter wanders in, helps himself at the buffet, pilfers the prize plonk, flirts with the young ladies, gets thrown out by security, reappears perhaps to sing a Frank Sinatra number , has even gone so far as to drown in the pool for a special finale, laugh and cry.

The pregnant man
Appearing as my usual – unusually wacky clown character, this time I am eight months pregnant.

Fire shows
Adult evening functions (3 X 15 minute
sets)Fire staff, fire-juggling, fire deabolo.

Corporate carnivals
Perfect for a product launch, you
customize, according to your budget. A team of puppets or giant carnival dragons takes to the street creating
colorful mayhem.
