Craig has a great variety show. We originally we just looking for someone to perform balloon twisting, but he brought so much more! Both adults and children were amazed by his juggling, unicycle, and balancing act. Craig really pulled the kids in by allowing them to try some juggling and twisted balloons creating their requests. If you need someone for your next event - call CRAZY CRAIG!
We had a houseful of 7 year old boys that for two weeks prior to the party had all talked non-stop about Crazy Craig and his folding chair balancing trick. So needless to say, anticipation was very high. The day of the party arrived and the rain was relentless. We were prepared to move it indoors realizing that tricks like balancing 10 folding chairs on his chin might have to be cut from the performance. But did a little rain deter Crazy Craig? No! Kids and adults watched comfortably from our garage while Craig put on a spectacular show in the driveway. Rain and all, and not one routine was cut. His dedication to putting on a great show was impressive. Not to mention that Craig's act is very entertaining. He worked hard to draw in not just the kids but he also got the adults involved as well. Then to top it off, he came inside and made the most spectacular balloon animals. My son has already begged to have Crazy Craig back next year. Other friends are looking to book him for their children's birthday. Other kids said it was the best party they had ever been to. It's clear Craig can tailor his act for whatever age group he's playing and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for anything including corporate gigs or other adult parties.
We engaged Craig for our department's annual summer picnic. This is family friendly event and Craig provided some much needed comedy relief. All the attendees, adults and children, enjoyed Craig's balloon twisting, unicycle tricks, chair stacking (he really can balance ten on his chin!) and more! We got so much feedback this this year's event was better than ever and that was all because of Craig. He worked really hard to fit his talents to our event and made it a huge success. Cannot recommend him enough!
Crazy Craig provided the entertainment at our annual company party in February. This was a family event with lots of kids. The response from the group was uniformly enthusiastic. Kids and adults had a blast watching and participating in the show. Crazy Craig is a natural entertainer; he performed amazing juggling and balancing feats, told jokes, and even did a few magic tricks. After his main show he stayed around to provide balloon sculptures and more fun, which the kids especially continued to enjoy. He was such a hit that people stayed right to end of the party, and even the wait staff wanted to join the action. I was receiving requests to invite Crazy Craig back next year before the evening was over. Crazy Craig will liven-up any event, I recommend him 100%.
Awesome and amazing! Crazy Craig did an outstanding variety performance. He engages the whole party from kids to adults, and mommy too! I would hire him again to do the same acts! He was a hit!
I hired Craig to entertain at our recent company picnic and twist some balloons for the kids. Everyone raved about him. They said it was the best picnic we have had and the entertainment was outstanding. He was fun with the kids, they laughed continuously throughout the show and he got them all involved at one point or another. Every kid wanted to participate, he made them all feel comfortable. He was very professional. I would surely book him again. It's obvious he has a passion for what he is doing.
We had Craig perform at our community Purim party and he was the best performer we've ever had. The great thing about Craig is that he entertained both the adults and kids, the adults were as engaged in the show as the kids.
I would definitely hire Craig for another show
Crazy Craig made balloon animals for all of the children at our Winter Carnival. He was great with the kids and everyone left happy. He also went to the park and juggled between shows and brought more patrons to our second program! Thanks Craig!
Craig truly impressed and entertained out party guests.
I would most certainly recommend him!
My daughter's 1st birthday party would not have been the same without Craig's performance! All the kids are still talking about him. He is definitely talented and worth every penny! Kept kids and grown-ups entertained. His performance shows he really loves what he does. Thanks again Craig!!!' Will book again in the future!
Crazy Craig, is a Gig for all ages. Booked for a 5 year Birthday party he got all adults involved and had them all laughing.
Fabulously creative Ballooning skills!
I hired Craig after seeing the positive reviews--it was for my kids first birthday party. He was very easy to deal with on the phone. Arrived on time with all the equipment he needed. He did a great job of keeping the kids entertained and in splits. He also did some really cool tricks on his unicycle as well as an amazing final act involving carrying multiple chairs on his chin--he got almost an ovation with this one. I would hire him again and there were several friends who wanted his information after the party!
I hired Crazy Craig for our Pack's Blue and Gold Banquet. He was great to work with in scheduling and even better with the performance. It's tough to keep 60+ kids, ranging in age from 2 to 10, excited...but he did. We've had other various performances at our Blue and Gold in years past, but Crazy Craig blew away the competition. He interacted with them and even allowed them to use some of their unspent energy in a good way. Every kid was raving about him afterwards!!!
We booked Craig in 2011 for our Cub Scout Blue and Gold event. He was on time, respectful, and extrmely entertaining! He had laughing, jumping, chanting, and wanting more. I would highly recomend Craig for you next event. The kids loved him so much that we are having him come to a school event this April. We can't wait!
He was very entertaining for our all school assembly that kicked off our Relay for Life. The kids loved it and also understood his message about never giving up and once you put your mind to something to keep trying until you succeed!
Craig was awesome. He interacted with the families that were at our event really well. He was friendly, funny and we loved his talent. He was easy to work with over the phone as well.

Influences & Inspiration
Working at Lake Compounce Amusement Park in Connecticut, I met other jugglers and watched and practiced a lot to perfect my skills. They inspired me to keep going, no matter how many times you drop, just keep picking them back up. And most importantly, "It's not how many things you can juggle, it's how well you do with what you got."
I bring everything I need, Very Adaptable to every environment
