“One word:AMAZING! I was beyond pleased with the service. I would give 100 STARS. They absolutely did an amazing job at my baby’s special day.” 

I have been bringing laughter and fun to thousands of family-oriented special events and occasions since 1990. The one thing kids, parents and clients say about me above all else is that I’m great with the kids and I make them laugh.  I guess I kind of know what it takes since I have five kids myself.

I have a unique method of bringing lots of laughs and fun by providing comedy magic and fun shows for kids and the entire family with cute puppets/ventriloquism for the younger kids, close-up strolling magic, fun music, funny balloon twisting for all the kids, and of course fun interactive games.

I am one of the few kids entertainment specialists in San Diego that can combine ALL of these activities into ONE eventyou don’t need to get multiple entertainers to have a variety of entertainment.

And of course at many of my events, I am asked to perform for only one kind of activity, such as only balloon twisting for a festival, or only balloon twisting and interactive games for a company picnicit’s up to you.  I can easily switch from activity to activity as needed.

Thinking about getting a character? I’ve performed many years as a character (i.e., Elmo, Barney, etc) and I can tell you firsthand that there is only so much that characters can do to entertain children. And many companies have young inexperienced performers that lack performing experience.

How about some of the balloon people you’ve seen? Were they funny, or did they just stand there and make balloons while the kids waited in line with a bored look on their face?  A good children’s entertainer is supposed to be funny and entertaining, right?  I make it a top priority to have patience with children and to treat kids with respect, and of course, have tons of fun along the way.

Company Picnics

What I’ll do at your picnic just depends on what kind of entertainment you would like, how many guests are there, and whether you have other entertainers there.

For smaller picnics with about 20 kids, if you have me for 2 or 3 hours, I might get time for 3 or 4 activities. For larger groups, I could just concentrate on 1 or 2 activities such as a magic show plus balloon animals or possibly interactive games. Some of the games that I perform are parachute games, interactive hot potato (this is a blast!), sack races, freeze dance, balloon limbo and others.  Games are great since they involve all of the children at once.

Festivals / Grand Openings

It just depends on what you think will work out best, and of course, I can give you advice if you let me know what your goal is (attract attention to your event?). But the most common thing I do is balloon making or strolling close-up magic for 2-3 hours, plus possibly one or two family-oriented comedy magic stage shows (usually mixed in with gags, animal puppets/ventriloquism, etc).  I can do multiple stage shows in one day. Please call or email and we’ll figure it out.

Weddings, Christenings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, etc.

For any event, I can do a really funny, high-energy interactive magic show for families and children of all ages. The show can be from 30 minutes all the way up to 2 hours long.

It’s not just magic through; I usually do some ventriloquism with cute animal puppets, balloon twisting, interactive games and other wild stuff! I can perform in any kind of area, indoors or out, it doesn’t need to be a stage. I perform for audience of any size. The show can be geared just for kids, or I can do a family show for all ages.

“THE BEST EXPERIENCE! Dave went above and beyond for our event.  He was extremely professional, and his interaction with all the children was incredible. He went out of his way to make every kid feel special and included. He didn’t watch the clock at all and even stayed past the time I had reserved him for. I cannot wait to use this company again.  Highly recommend them. Our guests are still raving about his appearance.  Thank you Dave!”
