Working With Kids – Why I Love It!

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Smiling Kid with Black Hair

In 2008 nearly 100% of our business was with corporate clients. Our entire business was focused around that, and things were great!

Then the Great Recession hit.

When companies are laying off employees, the last thing they’re interested in is hiring entertainment.

It was at that point we reorganized our business around the family and school market.

Until that point I had never worked too much with kids.

Halloween Shows for Family Parties

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Pumpkins glowing on water

Oh man… I NEED this.

I’ve been waiting my whole life for this!

How can I not buy this?

In my hands I’m holding a blonde afro wig. This thing has an “awesome” factor so intense that it’s creating a reality distortion field around it!

Oh, did I mention I’m standing in the middle of our local Halloween store that opens up around this time every year? Yeah… I love that place a little tooooo much…

Yeah. I’m not going to admit how much I spent on pointless costume pieces last year, but it tops four digits.

It’s bad. I need an intervention.

That reminds me though…

Kids Party Entertainers Top 3 Secrets

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Top Secret logo that's been altered by urban art to read as stop secrets

A lot of people ask us why we still do kids parties. Our business has expanded into new territories and the profit margins are razor thin. Aren’t there better ways for us to be spending our time?

Partly, it’s because we like keeping our chops sharp. If you can keep a crowd of 50 kids engaged while they’re veins are pumping with birthday cake, Sweet Tarts and Red Bull, you can handle anything.

Beyond that we care about kids and the entertainment they’re getting. One of the goals of our company from day one has been to always set the bar higher. We want the rest of the industry scrambling to keep up with us.

Many parents looking for kids party entertainers just want the cheapest quote. That’s a mistake. This isn’t like buying deodorant at Wal-Mart. All things are not equal.

Here are the top three industry secrets you probably should know.

If you’ve been watching our Facebook you’ve probably already seen this, but the new video trailer for our upscale family show launched this weekend! This is a result of the video shoot we did about a week ago.

It’s only two minutes long, but I’m super stoked about how it came out! Go pop some popcorn, hit play, and enjoy! It’s super high energy, just like our show!

Cool Customer Comments: Wilson Memorial Hospital

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

One of the most gratifying things about what we do is hearing back from satisfied customers!

To be completely transparent for a second… Running a business is a lot more difficult than most people think. If I could spend all of my time performing, that would be great! That’s not the way things work though.

Getting packages like this in the mail really brightens my day. It really means the world to me, and that’s why I’m sharing it with you!

Frequently we get cool stuff in the mail from our customers. Occasionally I like to share those things here.

Notes like this brings me joy. I hope it puts a smile on your face as well!

Horizon Activities Center Performance

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

magic show at child development center

A while back we were honored to perform at Horizon Activities Center. They were an incredible group to perform for. The kids were a lot of fun and everyone had a blast.

Afterward the program director came up to us and said: “You guys were really good! As one of our staff members said, you won us over in the first five minutes!”

A few days ago we got a package in the mail. It was from Horizon. Inside was a really nice letter, some cards from the kids, and pictures from the show! This is one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to us.

Kid Magic Tricks and Sets

Monday, December 27th, 2010

This past weekend we performed for a young lady’s birthday party. Afterward she told us “I love magic! I wish I could do it! I have these ring things, but I can’t make them work!”

This is actually a pretty common thing. The majority of kids magic sets are pretty crummy. I’ve seen more than one child with a sincere interest in magic give up in frustration because they couldn’t make the stuff work.

Earlier I posted about gifts for the budding magician. At that point I recommended books because they really are the best investment early on.

Many parents want to buy a “trick” though… Which is where the problem comes in. They head out to Toys R Us or worse yet, the Dollar Tree and pick up a magic kit.
