Fall Fell, Folks!
Check the leaves -- winter is closer than you think! Is the Christmas caricature artist booked yet? Who else will draw Santa Claus beards on the caricatures of your family and guests? There's no better way to get in the holiday spirit.

The spooky balloon on the right was sculpted by Mr. No! Booking him is definitely a yes. Look at his page!
Featured Entertainer: Greg M!
I am excited to bring a variety of audience interactive circus arts to fairs, festivals, parties, and shows: juggling, stilt walking, balloon sculpting, clowning, and much more!

I began performing musical theater with a youth group called Onstage Productions, and my first paying job was working as a juggler at the age of thirteen with the Maryland Renaissance Festival. In 1990, I attended the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Clown College, and I went on to tour with the circus itself in 1991, 1994, and 1995. After I ran away from the circus to join a home, I began my full-time gigging career.
I once worked a circus touch tour for children who were visually impaired—an opportunity before our show for those kids to touch the things everyone else sees later. I was chatting with a very kind, eight-year-old girl, and she was feeling my big clown shoes and my silly wig and hat. When she touched my face, her fingers were so sensitive, she could tell where the colors changed in my makeup.

Later, our handlers brought out the finale of the event--one of our elephants--and I was overwhelmed at the thought of how special this moment would be for my new friend. With tears in my eyes, I asked her, “Are you ready to touch a real, live elephant?” She shook her head and said “No, thanks. He stinks.” It was a reaction any child might have had. So why had I been so surprised? That day, she taught me a valuable lesson: She was a child first. She just also happened to be blind.

My goal at any event is to entertain through play. I want to perform with my audiences, not just for them. From calling back and forth with 500 kids in a school assembly, to getting a tiny smile from a scared toddler in a balloon line, it is those playful connections that I cherish most in my work.
the best holiday: an editorial
It's a day anticipated all year. In the entertainment industry, we know just how much of a banger these parties can be. And the 28th is just around the corner, so you'd better get started booking entertainment.
With a stone's patience, I've been counting the days until the next National Chocolate Day. Take my word for it, this holiday makes even Pronouns Day (Oct 16th) feel boring.
