David H. Claunch

Why book David H. Claunch?

I am a storyteller, clown, humorist and balloon artist. I combine all of these skills into interactive and animated story performances for kids of all ages, from kindergarten to retirement communities. I also deliver key note speeches and seminars about storytelling and humor as leadership tools. I facilitate storytelling, clowning and creative story writing workshops.



Mr. Claunch is lively, friendly, funny and a great twister!

Mr. Claunch buys balloons in my shop, Balloon-A-Tics, in Johnson City. I have recommended him for several events and he always gets rave reviews. When he comes in he always takes time to visit with us and demonstrate the latest and greatest balloon figure he is tying. He is such a warm and funny person and we always enjoy seeing him. We feel very fortunate to have someone nearby whom we can recommend so heartily. He has a college degree in English and storytelling from ETSU.

Review by Marcie

Where does one begin to express the professionalism, silliness and talent of David Claunch. He is a tremendous asset to any event and will create memories that will last generations. David takes something as simple as a bubble wand and quickly has everyone laughing. Balloon twisting is another area that he excels in. I highly recommend David, aka Dr. Dilly Dally for all your next celebration.
