Magic Fingers biggest strength is that he is a speed twister. He can handle 80-100 simple balloons per hour. This does not mean that he just races through and hands you some junk piece that you can not identify. His work is identifiable. Most of the items he makes are large, simple and flashy and can be done in a matter of a minute or two. Where most entertainers make their mistake is in making items that take ten to fifteen minutes each and they are there for an hour with thirty guests. Do the math! Or they have twenty or thirty guests and all they make are swords and dogs and hearts. Magic Fingers understands his crowd and knows how to work it to please most everybody. You wont please everybody but you can please most everybody!
He is also a master balloon twister which can make large hats like the Batman hat, Chicken hat, Rainbow hat, Anniversary hat and more. Balloons that can be used as centerpieces at wedding receptions and banquets like the ten balloon fruit basket, seven balloon rainbow and more.
Imagine seeing your loved ones running around at your event wearing a Batman hat and saving the world. Or wearing a princess crown doing the wave like the Miss America contestants. Magic Fingers likes to use audience participation and even embarrass people in a good and fun way. Magic Fingers does not use offensive entertainment practices like some entertainers do. His entertainment is always clean entertainment. He has been offered large tips to tell dirty jokes. He does not. Again, he is a clean entertainment.
Another strength of his is in his relationship with his crowd. They are family to him. He will tell jokes and stories to keep the children and adults interested in what is going on. He is a true entertainer and not just a balloon twister. However the stories and jokes do not take away from the balloons. It is just a companion to the balloons. In other words..... He can walk and chew gum at the same time. The stories and jokes take place while he is working and making balloons.
Magic Fingers likes to work. He is not stingy like some twisters are with their balloons. You see the balloons are what are considered "Consumables" like ink cartridges in a printer. They cost money. Every time a balloon twister blows up a balloon it is costing him\her money to make that balloon. The more balloons you make the more it costs you as a twister to perform. So most twisters will try to use the balloons as a starting point to get your attention then go onto something cheaper like magic or juggling. Magic Fingers is a balloon twister! Period! His costs are included in his price quoted. He buys his balloons in bulk from a reputable distributor and not from the local party store at a 500% markup in price for old and stale balloons. . His balloons are fresh and has been dealing with the same distributor for 28 years of his 35 years in business. He does not charge extra for the balloons used (Shop Charge Argument) like some twisters do and can go through as much as a bag of balloons per hour if the crowd is a busy crowd. Sometimes if the event only has him there for an hour and there are close to a hundred guests..... He is going to have to do the simple stuff. It is fun however when he can really shine with his good stuff when the crowds are down or he has two or three hours to really shine with the big stuff.The balloons are the grandest prize to bring home to show what kind of fun you had at Johnnies party or at the fair or festival you went to.
A special note about the balloons. The way you get the gigs is by having the biggest and best balloons around. Magic Fingers will not be outdone at any event where there is another entertainer. Hey, if you have a large event hire two twisters. Magic Fingers and a competitor and see which one you like the most! You will find Magic Fingers is a workhorse.
His payment options are the most generous of any entertainer available offering cash, check or credit card. (Mastercard, Visa, DIscover and American Express) Magic Fingers has several different "Traditional" merchant accounts for credit card processing. He uses a traditional card swiper the date of the event for security sake. Swiping the card is recognized by credit card companies as proof of ownership of the card. However, if you choose to pay ahead you can do so by Paypal. In some cases Magic Fingers may require payment ahead of the event for special circumstances. (Out of town events with travel, hotel and other added expenses, special costuming required by the host of the event, etc). However, 95% of his entertainment any more is within the Columbus and Central Ohio area.
