Children’s party entertainer in Somerset Dorset and Devon
Abbaffoon (pronounced ‘A Buffoon’), is a slapstick clown and magician – a children’s entertainer with nearly thirty years experience of bringing laughter to children and families. His shows combine storytelling, clowning, slapstick, mime, magic, lots of audience participation, and a huge dollop of stupendous inspired sillyness
What Makes a Good Children’s Party Entertainer?
Children won’t be entertained for long by a series of magic tricks that they can’t do, so a children’s party magician needs to do more. Whether it’s magic, circus skills or music, what kids like is to join in, and be the stars of the show. So a great children’s entertainer will be the butt of the jokes, make a fool of himself, and create a world of play in which everything seems to go wrong. That’s how the great clowns did it: Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy. They fell flat on their faces and we all laughed.
A good party entertainer doesn’t need spectacular magic tricks, a red nose or scary make up, and he or she certainly won’t use a microphone, or play recorded music – he uses simple routines that children understand, and creates a world of fun in which children are the heroes, and adults are really rather silly (which we are).
Themed Birthday Parties
Children love role play and most like dressing up, so they get into character and play without you having to do as much – all it takes is a bit of imagination. And when it comes to the show, Abbaffoon is a childrens entertainer who can adapt his show to fit any theme you like! Pirates and princesses is of course the most popular, and its also the easiest because most children already have a suitable costume. And the Abbaffoon Pirate Show is really great with loads of audience participation, pirate tales, loads of disgusting bits, and the worlds smelliest sock! It isn’t scary and even young children join in the laughter and fun as this very silly children’s entertainer tries to stop the naughty pirates from coming to steal the birthday cake.
But it’s not just pirates – he can do a childrens party show based on any party theme, but do ask first!
For younger children (four and five) there is a Mr Silly Billy show in which Abbaffoon has a lot of trouble finding his hat (it’s on his head), the naughty sausages keep interrupting the show, and worst of all, his magic walking stick keeps whacking him on the bottom.
Entertainment for Special Needs Children
Abbaffoon is a children’s entertainer who has lots of experience performing for special needs children and can adapt shows accordingly. The humour is simple and here is nothing complicated about the shows. You are welcome to discuss any particular requirements.
A Word About Children’s Entertainers
Children’s parties are now big business, and many children’s party entertainers are employed by commercial organisations, or are franchises for people who ‘do kiddies parties’ on Saturday afternoons to supplement their day job!
Abbaffoon is an independent and dedicated artist with no connection to any commercial organisation or franchise. All work is original and is written and devised personally.
He has trained with some of the best performers in the world and yes, this is his day job!
