Children’s Birthday Party Entertainer in Somerset
The most common question is
“What do you do for a Children’s Birthday Party?”
Owweee – that stick just hit me on the bottom!
How do you describe the work of a children’s party entertainer? Well I keep the children and parents laughing for up to an hour with a show that covers a wide age range, and can be adapted to suit the age and interests of the audience.
My work is based on traditional timeless slapstick clowning – modern children have just the same sense of humour as children living a hundred years ago. They love it when things go wrong: a clown who falls flat on his face; a fool who can’t find his hat (it’s on his head); or a walking stick that somehow manages to fly through the air and whack him on the bottom!
Children also love to be the centre of attention, and in the Birthday Party Show, they are the stars. Children upstage the performer, who can’t seem to do anything right. They get to help in the show, heckling and shouting as only children know how. Oh and the adults have to join in too. Good old fashioned pantomime humour performed by a Children’s Party Entertainer with over 25 years professional experience of making children laugh! A wonderfool mix of slapstick, magic, mime and sillyness, available for most areas of Somerset.
The Birthday Party Show
I start with a few slapstick routines that get everyone laughing and in the mood, then weave in a bit of storytelling, telling them of the wicked pirates who are about to come and steal the birthday cake, or the nasty goblins who like to eat children for breakfast. Then, with the help of the children, we have to work out a magic spell to stop them. And now everything goes wrong and we are into a slapstick romp where I am upstaged by my walking stick, a string of sausages, and end up arguing with my hat. In the end it all works out and the birthday child successfully pulls off a colourful magic trick.
Birthday Party Entertainment – Requirements
Three young pirates having a wonderful time!
All I need is a large space with a backdrop of some kind, reasonably good lighting, and an audience. There are no amplifiers, no recorded music, and no shouting into a microphone, so I don’t even need a plug socket. All that is required is for someone to sit the children down, with at least two adults sitting with them, AND for any other adults to sit with the children and join in and not talk at the back!!!
The show can be adapted to fit with almost any birthday party theme, although as a general rule I suggest keeping the theme as broad as possible eg ‘fairytale’ or ‘pirates’.
