Few gifts provide the surprise, humor, and memories like a singing telegram.
Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, office party or any other occassion, you can't beat the look on people's faces when a gorilla in a tux shows up and starts singing.
Nathaniel Jones is a professionally trained actor and singer who has been performing in the Puget Sound area for over ten years, and is now your best choice for a unique gift in the South Puget Sound area, everywhere from Olympia to Seattle.
You choose the songs, costume, gifts, and location, and I show up for a celebration you won't forget.
My husband was thoroughly embarrassed, which was the goal!
The Classy Gorilla was available at the last minute, actually let me know he showed up a little early & waited for the surprise signal & got our resistant guest of honor to get up & dance. He was fabulous & everybody said it was the highlight of their year at work! And it’s December! Thanks Classy Gorilla!
I wasn't able to be there but my spouse was very much entertained which is amazing for an introvert.
My only wish would have been for someone to tape it. Thank you again and will be using your service often.
The classy gorilla was such a hit!!! He came into our office and sang happy birthday to mariachi music and gave my boss flowers for her birthday. The classy gorilla is professional and an excellent communicator. Thank you again so much for making her birthday special!
Booked last minute and it was a very easy process. All the guests liked the performance.
The performance was fun and memorable.
i hired the classy gorilla to surprise my brother on his birthday while he was out to dinner. He did a wonderful job and got the whole restaurant to join in the singing. My brother-who is the master at surprises himself-was completely surprised and got a great laugh.He also stayed for a few minutes after to pose for some pics.Thank you classy gorilla!
I am in Hawaii and found Classy Gorilla on this site. My brother turned 21 and he is in Washington. Classy Gorilla was very easy to hire even from another state. I could not be at the party but everyone said Classy Gorilla was very entertaining and professional. Thank you for making my brothers birthday enjoyable for me.
My amazing creative,thoughtful boyfriend hired Nathaniel for a Valentine's Day surprise and had him come into my work . Lets just say it was the highlight of this place for...not day,or month,but year. He put on a great show,everybody really enjoyed the show dancing,clapping singing along. It definitely made my day leaving us all with a big smile on our faces and one experience we will never forget. Thank you Nathaniel for the great job.
I was the recipient of this gift. It could not have come at a better time, and I was so surprised! It was the best birthday present ever! Nathaniel has a great voice, and also danced during his performance. Everyone present enjoyed his performance so much! Fabulous and Creative!!! Thank you!
Classy Gorilla went above and beyond. Everyone present was simply amazed and almost died laughing. The prices are too low for the entertainment value. I'm telling everyone I know, and look forward to booking their services again!
During our staff Holiday party, a gorilla walked into the room and wowed us with singing, dancing and candy canes!
It was quite a treat for coworkers. Those who missed it were quite upset.
Price Range: $100-250
Gig Length: 5 - 15 minutes
What to Expect
The Classy Gorilla (or other character of your choice) arrives at the destination, locates the target, and before he or she knows what hit 'em, the gorilla is singing and dancing, cracking jokes, and posing for pictures if desired. Afterwards, the gorilla vanishes into the mist, leaving them to wonder "who was that Classy Gorilla anyway?"
Nathaniel Jones studied acting, writing, and musical theater at the University of Southern California and Western Washington University, where he graduated with his BA in theater in 2007. He has been performing in the Seattle area since 2001, as Dickens Caroler, a member of the Federal Way Harmony Kings barbershop chorus, and in numerous plays and musicals. Recent roles include Wayne in "Inspecting Carol" at Burien Little Theater, Charlie Brown in "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" at the Merc Playhouse, Sparky in "Forever Plaid" and "Plaid Tididngs" at Renton Civic, Kirkland Performing Arts Center, and Bellevue Civic Theaters.
