Dodger the Clown

Why book Dodger the Clown?

Short Version:

We twist balloons (animals, crazy hats, scuptures and do decorations), paint faces, do magic/illusions/slight-of-hand, we do skits, we can share our testimony and bear witness to the changes in our lives through JESUS CHRIST, we come in character costumes (clown - in attire or Plain Clothes Division, wizard, Batman, Spiderman, Mario, scarecrow, etc...see more below), we act silly and enjoy making people smile and laugh.

Small events or big events, Church (VBS, etc..) or secular, private or corporate and everything in between - we have a "folly of fools" that can be assembled to make your event memorable!!

We are centrally located in Kansas City, MO and can travel!!

<<<<< :O) >>>>>

Long Version:

Typically, we love to be "the clown", but have been seen dressed up as different characters (Balloon Twister, Tramp/ Hobo, Batman, Santa, an Elf, Spiderman, Magician, Wizard, Pirate, Scarecrow, Swami, and Mario) - twisting balloons of all colors into animal, insect, floral shapes, and making some really crazy balloon hats. Line work, decorations, VBS, birthday parties, any special occassion, etc... - we like to twist balloons!! :O)

We can juggle - scarves, balls, rings, clubs, cigar boxes (and our schedules).

We do face painting. Well, Kevo does. My face-painting skills are best utilized on the side of a house - but Kevo, on the other hand, is one of the best face painters I have had the pleasure to twist balloons around. Whether it be cheek art or full face, you will be awed (see photos).

And if that is not enough - we can do skits (with a message) and magic/ illusions (also with a message) [disclaimer: actually there is no such thing as magic].

Oh, and almost forgot - we have been know to act pretty silly at times, too!! :o)

We are available for church/ corporate/ community events, birthday parties, private/ special occassions, flower delivery...especially events for the kids.

Check me out on Facebook, just click the link above. Don't forget to "like" me or be my friend, I need all the friends I can get. :op

Give us a call and let us help you make a special memory at your next event. :o)
Thanks for checking us out!!

Reviews

Wonderful!!

Dodger and his friend "the Scarecrow" came to our fall party last evening. I have never written a review for anything before, but we were so pleased that I had to share! We had 50 kids all 5 and under. These two were so kind and professional! Many parents came up to me amazed by their interactions with the kids beyond just making balloons and painting faces. Now, the balloons and face painting were another thing! It was nothing short of amazing! Full faced butterflies (with balloon wings, of course), skeletons, zombies, spiderman, warriors, pirates - you name it, these guys delivered!!! We had hats, swords (who knows how many dodger made!), bracelets, etc. I can't wait for next time!! I highly recommend dodger! Very easy to work with as well.

Response from Dodger the Clown:

We appreciate our clients comments/reviews as it only helps to let other know more about us when choosing entertainment for their events!!

One of the things we've learned in doing what we do is that if we just show up and twist balloons and paint faces - we've failed!! We love working with the kids and our interaction with them. We do all we can to make their experience around us as fun and enjoyable as possible!! :O)

Very friendly and professional

Dodger and friends came to perform for us this 4th of July weekend. They were very friendly and professional. We were very pleased with the entertainment they provided us for the price we paid. I would highly recommend Dodger and friends for any type of party or event. They seem very flexible and open to new ideas.

Very easy to work with, and kids loved it!

Dodger was great. He was willing to adapt his program to the needs of our event and the children had a great time. He went over and above and I truly appreciate it!

Overview

I would hope some form of enjoyment - be it smiling from ear to ear or in the form of laughter. They might receive something that they didn't expect to see or hear from a clown (that you'll have to hire us for to find out!! :O) )

Dodger the Clown

Who I am:
Imma "fool" for JESUS. I put make up on my face and dress up as a clown. I twist balloons and act silly, bringing smiles and laughter to those I interact with.

What I do:
I enjoy entertaining and interacting with kids of all ages - tiny to ninety - using balloons twisted in a variety of colors and shapes with crazy balloon hats being my favorite. I can juggle - scarves, balls, rings, clubs and yes, cigar boxes (youtube that one, if you have never seen it). I can do some magic/ illusion/slight of hand (you choose what you want to call it). And I also have some skits with a message that can be delivered.
