My Grandson's Birthday Party

I went online to find Bob...Never met him...He called me to confirm location and time. He showed up on time and was the most Phenomenal hit with the kids and adults...Stayed longer at the party than we had discussed. My Grandson turned 2 years old and I don't know what I can do on his third birthday to top what Bob did on this one his second.....If you want someone who will bring joy and happiness to your function----I cannot think of anybody better!!!!!

I am so grateful that Friendly the Clown went that extra mile for a anniversary surprise for my husband who is dying from Bulbar ALS. If only you could see the pictures of the event my husband had a huge smile on his face and was blessed so much by the performance of Friendly the Clown. From the booking the party to the very end it was a very very pleasant experience. Thanks, Friendly the Clown for touching our families' hearts!

Best party ever!

We hired friendly the clown to come to my sons 2 year birthday celebration, he was excellent on time, very funny and friendly with everyone, he took his time to do the face painting on all the kids including some teen! His show was funny, and the kids loved leaving with a balloon animal, flower, etc. he was willing to travel and the price was good. Excellent service very happy!!

Great for my booth at a trade show!!!!

Bob was really a great addition to my booth at a Bridal Show. He drew them into my booth and kept them there. He made balloon flowers for the brides and children. People will remember me...because of Friendly The Clown. I would really love to work with him at a wedding reception. He would be really fun to photograph with children. If I was going to be booking a wedding for my daughter. I would hire Friendly, and a live musician, and skip the DJ...and still have money left over. And I would have a wedding reception that people would remember...and would talk about for decades. He was really worth a lot more than I paid him. His name says it all FRIENDLY!!!

Bob the Balloon twister was awesome!!

I hired Bob the Balloon twister (aka Friendly the clown) for my daughter's 3rd bday party. He did an awesome job on the magic/entertainment show as well as the balloon twisting. His balloon twisting is really very innovative. Everyone was amazed including the adults. My daughter and her friends had so much fun. Bob is also very very responsible and professional. I will highly recommend him for any party.
Thank you Bob for your wonderful service!

Hi Friendly the Clown,
Just wanted to tell you how satisfied I was with your services.
I really appreciate all you did to make my son David's Birthday special. You are good at what you do, and I will be using your services again. It was a lot of work. I ran behind schedule, and it was complete chaos but over all the kids had a great time, and that is what counts. You can count on me to give some great reviews on those sites that you left. I will also send some business your way. Keep up the good work, and thank you sooooo much. Sincerely, Shena.

Friendly the Clown was hired for a non-profit fundraiser and he was a HIT with everyone! We received rave reviews for our entertainment and all the kids LOVED his balloon animals. His humor was clean and him and his wife were the sweetest! They're already hired for our fundraiser next year! I would recommend him to anyone without question. Just beware to anyone who is contacting him--- you might be asked to participate in one of his skits... it's all in good fun, but my coworkers and friends will never let me live that down. 5 stars!

I can't thank Friendly enough for the fabulous show he put on for our sons Ryan and Kye's birthday party. His show was amazing and the kids absolutely loved getting their faces painted and getting balloons made for them. The parents of our guests wanted to know how we found out about Friendly. They thought it was one of the best birthday parties they had been to. Our sons felt so special being able to participate in Friendly's show. The party would have been complete chaos if Friendly hadn't been there. We would recommend Friendly to anyone who wants to give their child a memorable birthday experience. Thank you Friendly! You are the best! From Apple Valley, MN.
