Why hire Characters Plus by Garland Owens?
I have about a dozen different characters: a renaissance commoner, Da Geeke, a jester, Mamoo (a classy ape man), Eldo Snodgrass (God's gift to women - or so he thinks), Santa Claus (traditional and not), Easter Bunny, Uncle Sam (mildly non-traditional), Lotta Bosom (my wife defines her as a large busted, gregarious, "lady" - but she is hot to trot!), Carmen Miranda, The Old Man (can be wise or senile - depending on the situation demands), a very large elf (I am 6'4").
I ride unicycle in all the parades in Springfield while throwing something that matches the holiday theme. Lotta and Eldo are not for the general public and are more for the mature adult crowd or maybe I should say "'immature adult crowd". All the other persona are appropriate for families.
