    When you book a show, different options will be discussed depending on your specific needs and the location of your event. If you are looking for a specific character like Mr. Bungles, it will be noted in your contract that he is the performer. We have many wonderful performers to pull from to create the perfect event for you. If you are looking for someone who has multiple skill sets like facepainting and balloons, I will find the right person for you. The name of the performer will be in your contract that will be e-mailed to you.

     

    FAQ2I have a high-energy comedy show that keeps the kids laughing with comedy routines using juggling, magic, music with my guitar, games, fun props, and balloon sculptures. I work hard to keep the kids enjoying every minute and I change things based on what I think the crowd might like at the moment. Although there are set bits that I use for my shows, I also do a lot of comic improvising based on the kids’ reactions and comments. For more information click here.

     

    FAQ3Some children are timid around costumed characters and clowns with makeup which is normal especially in the two to three year old range. The good news is that Mr. Bungles (and many of our other performers) do not wear make up, big shoes or a wig so children are not afraid. If your child is normally hesitant around any stranger, just let them watch from the back for a few minutes. Once they see other children laughing and having fun, they will probably want to participate as well in just a few minutes. If you are in fact looking for a clown with make-up, I can provide that, too!

     

    Kids of all ages, even adults, love bubbles. One of the things you can add to a party is a bubble station. This includes large wands that make amazing bubbles, bubble toys for the kids to play with, and a machine that sends out tons of bubbles every minute. We use a special hand made formula for the big bubbles that even little kids can master. This is a great addition to any party and the kids have a ball. I can also put somebody inside a bubble with our fun bubble pool option! (Link to bubble video) Bubble parties are usually outside but can be done indoors if you have the right space.

     

    Most birthday party shows are either an hour and a half or an hour long. For large corporate events, a performer might be at the same location for 2-4 hours.

     

    FAQ5There are many details that affect the price of a party, including: length of stay, location, type of entertainment, and options selected. Please call the office for details and we will work out a show that fits your budget.

    Charges for other performers vary depending on the time, location and performers available. If you are planning a large event and need multiple performers, I will work within your budget to find the best people available. Gratuity for any performer is optional.

     

    Balloon Sculptures, Bubble parties and more! One of the options you can select is pre-making balloons. The kids LOVE the advanced balloon sculptures our professionals make but it does take some time at the party. When they pre-make balloons before arriving and just make a few balloons at the party, it leaves more active time for performing and less waiting time which is usually hard for kids. It keeps the show at a high energy level and allows the children to really enjoy the creative balloon art without the wait. Usually our performers will make a few balloons for the birthday child so the kids can see the magic of a balloon being twisted and then hand out the pre-made balloons. This is also very exciting for kids because it gets them to see the huge range beyond the “basic dog” they usually see. This option is especially useful for larger parties of 10 or more.

    Kids are especially excited when you add the bubble station to an event which includes large bubble wands, bubble toys and a bubble machine that kids of all ages love. Cotton candy or popcorn, and additional performers like a face painter or caricature artist who offer additional entertainment are also popular.

    Besides personally performing at around 250 shows each year, my Pongo the Clown character was featured on a cable television show which aired around 15 times. I had a principal role on a commercial that ran on multiple cable stations for around 6 months. My theatrical background includes a 4-year college degree, during which I studied theatre in England for a year. I have taken multiple classes in NYC, including improvisation with Chicago City Limits, and have performed many times on stage and in films. I am now a full-time party entertainer, event planner, and clown teacher. For more information, click here.

     

    I can often squeeze in a last minute party, even days away, but it is always better to book ahead to get your first choice for the date and time. Most people book 6-8 weeks in advance and some book up to a year away because they know my work and want to lock me in for their event. If you know you will be having a party, try to book the entertainment first before locking in the date with your guests. This way you will always have the most options with the most flexibility.

     

    Just call 203-846-2000 or send an e-mail, and start planning today.

    After we confirm all the details by phone or email, a  deposit is due at the time of booking or within 24 hours if paying by check or cash. The balance is due on the date of the show or before, depending on the situation. You can use a credit card, check or cash. Checks are made out to Party Talent, LLC and mailed to:

    Norwalk, CT 06851

    Please include the date of the event and directions with your deposit. For more specific details, click here.

     

    As professionals, performers have to turn down work every day because it conflicts with a previous booking. A deposit confirms the time, show date and your commitment and prevents anyone else from taking your time slot. A  deposit is due at the time of booking. Most people use a credit card to do so.

     

    Sure! There is a form on the website to fill out with the initial information and we will call you to confirm the date and time, and complete the order process. Click here for booking details. If you don’t get a response within 12 hours, PLEASE call 203-846-2000. With the volume of mail that is received, sometimes important messages get blocked, hidden or lost.

     

    Party Talent, LLC uses a secure online credit card service that allows us to process payments by phone. Your credit card is processed with a system that on-line banks use to make sure your private information is safe.

     

    All dates are considered definite at the time of phone or email confirmation. If you are not sure of your plans, just ask if a 24 hour hold can be put on your date and time. Please confirm or release within this time. The system will automatically release date and give to someone else after the 24 hours is completed. Once a time and date is selected, all other jobs that come in will be refused or planned around your party. We unfortunately have to turn down jobs every day due to prior commitments. In the case of true emergencies (child in emergency room, etc.), special arrangements will be made to reschedule without penalty or loss of deposit.

     

    If you are planning an outdoor event, please have a back up plan for rain. This could be a tent, outdoor covered pavilion, or indoor location. All events are considered to be definite and are on rain or shine unless specific arrangements are made at the time of booking. If a rain date is necessary, additional financial arrangements may be made to reserve two dates at the initial booking.

     

    In the rare case of a snow or ice storm forcing cancellation or postponement, your event will be rescheduled or cancelled without any financial penalty.

     

    Please note that we take great pride in being a professional. We organize our performance schedules to arrive on time, plan driving routes, follow up on all details a few days before a party, and plan ahead to make sure every event is successful. We only choose to work with other dependable, experienced performers who also have professional attitudes. Our company has grown tremendously every year because parents and companies trust us and know that we are reliable and professional. Most of our work comes from people who have seen our performers, repeat clients who hire us year after year and from others who enthusiastically refer us to friends and family. We are very proud of our reputation and take great efforts to make sure every party is successful in every way.

    In the rare, almost non-existent, time that a performer can’t make a show because of a true weather, traffic or personal emergency, another professional entertainer will be arranged. If this is not possible or if the client prefers, the party will be rescheduled, or a full refund given.

     

    If you have any questions not answered here, or if you want to reserve a date, please feel free to call the office at 203-846-2000 and our staff will be happy to help you. Office hours are Monday through Friday 9:00AM – 6:00PM.
