I’ve been entertaining for 40 years and I am one of the top entertainers in the Chicagoland area. I can entertain from 2 yrs and up so even the youngest children will be entertained.
I can do anything you want, but the bottom line is that the children will be laughing and entertained the entire time I am there.
I do circus style comedy, puppets, live ukulele music, comedy magic, very nice balloons, face painting and temporary tattoos. My shows are very funny and interactive. My specialty is entertaining ages 2-6 but I entertain all ages. If you want the entire family totally entertained call me.
Steven did a fantastic job at our schools Halloween Dance. We had two dances back to back (Friday & Saturday). There were over 200 kids at each dance and he made sure to make every kid feel special!!!!! He was on time, super friendly and took care of all the kids. I would highly recommend him and will use him in the future for sure!
Steven was awesome and cost effective!! He kept the kids engaged and entertained. We had him for face painting, variety show and balloon pulling. I would 100% hire him again.
Steve was fantastic. Kept many toddler and preschool aged kids entertained during the party which allowed the adults time to socialize. He did the comedy show and balloon twisting. I was slightly worried about her and the kiddos with someone with clown makeup and being scared, but he included the kids when he painted his face and transitioned to the clown portion of the act. I enjoyed that (hopefully she won’t develop a fear of clowns since he did it this way and could see that he was a normal person “playing dress up”) and we actually ran out of time but Steve was amazing and stayed late at no charge to grant my daughters wish of getting a face painting done :) she was ecstatic for the whole night walking around with her full butterfly face and her friends were so happy to have animal face paintings as well! Would hire him again, he did an excellent job!
Such a perfect addition to our block party! The kids were entertained the entire time and were talking about the awesome balloons the next day. Would hire again, for sure!
We were very pleased with the service we were provided for our National Night Out. The event hosted a lot more kids than we anticipated and every kid was able to get a balloon.
He did a wonderful job at making balloons with the kids! Also, the magic show was a hit with the kids!
We loved him! He added face painting and balloons which was amazing! Thank you!!
Thought I was getting a clown, he was not dressed as one, I was very disappointed about that, I informed my group that we were getting a clown, he placed a bar around my grandsons neck my guess didn’t like that due to were African American , I knew what he was doing it was perceived another
Response from Finnegan's Rainbow of Fun:
I have no idea what she is talking about in the review. When I come to perform I don't come dressed as anything. I give the children the option of a clown or magic show. The children obviously asked for a magic show or I would have done the clown. Either that or she had many more children than expected and it took a long time to make the balloons and since the magic show is shorter, I did that rather than the clown. The sword through the neck is a standard magic trick and has no racial implications. What she didn't mention is that the children loved the show and the balloons I made. I come to entertain the children and she ignored the fact that everyone of them enjoyed what I did. I don't worry about reviews like this because I've been performing for 41 years, have done over 13,000 performances and maybe one in a thousand will give me a bad review. You can't please every adult but I know that the children love everything that I do.
His balloon creations were very good! he was very fast and never stopped working!
We loved his show I will be booking him again. He was so funny and patient he let the kids be kids and enjoyed them having so much fun
This was the first time I’ve ever booked an event like this. I didn’t know what to expect. The kids seemed entertained with tricks for a bit. The kids got restless when Steve couldn’t find his red bag. I didn’t know he was looking for the balloons. That took about 10 minutes. I wish there could have been a few face paintings now.
Wow! What a great person and entertainer. Finnegan is a class act. We had over 300+ guests at our school’s fundraiser and all the children who wanted balloons were able to get one. That’s over 150 kids. Finnegan stayed past his scheduled time always saying as long as there are kids he’ll be making balloons. Do not hesitate to book. Thank you for great service.
We had Mr. Finnegan for my daughters first birthday party and he kept 20+ kids entertained for a full hour and a half!! He was great would book again!
Very good time
Our grandkids loved the show and he made them laugh and were very excited . I may add most of the adults were amused and participated also. Finnegan is a fabulous kind clown. Thank you Finnegan🙂
On time and delivered as expected. He understood the crowd and we all had a great time.
Awesome show everyone was laughing and engaged. I would definitely recommend. Worth every penny.
Finnegan was a delight to have at our child’s party. He was flexible with our last minute changes, was timely, and ultimately went above and beyond any expectations we had. It was a toss up between parents and children on who enjoyed Finnegan the most. He stuck around at the end of the show and made cute balloon animals for all the children. Ultimately, we had to pull the children away from Finnegan, or he wouldn’t have been able to leave the party! If you find yourself looking for birthday party entertainment, look no further than Finnegan!
It was great thanks so much for the entertainment and i will let friends and family know for future events.
The clown was so nice and sweet and his show was wonderful! The kids loved it and we did too!
He sang for my CEOs birthday and played his ukulele. I was honestly surprised to see how many people around the office requested balloon animals. It was a good time.
Response from Finnegan's Rainbow of Fun:
I did what they wanted and everyone had a good time And still only got a 4 star review. I don't understand why people don't know that anything less than 5 stars actually hurts a performer. If the goal is to make everyone enjoyed themselves and they enjoy themselves, why isn't that a 5 star review. Too many people don't understand how the review system works.
The Kids absolutely loved it! I had Finnegan's Rainbow of Fun for my daughters 4th Birthday Party - kids ages 3-8 came. He came out of costume - face painted all the kids- had the kids dress him up as a Hobo Clown and then did tricks! It was a Hit! Great idea to come out of costume, this way kids don't get scared and it teaches the kids not to be afraid of clowns. All of my friends and family who came loved it!
Needed some last minute entertainment for our daughters first birthday party so we hired Steve here from Finnegans Rainbow of Fun. He was very professional and prompt on his emails and phone calls to me... showed up early to the gig and the kids were definitely entertained. We had about 8 kids under the age of 6 to keep entertained... at times it was hard to keep their attention but he did manage to make them laugh. His tricks were outdated and old fashioned, used very old props and old jokes. Some of the jokes the kids didn’t understand but the adults got a chuckle out of it. He did some face painting for the kids (that was ok- messy but ok). Used older puppets and props. Would have gave 5 stars if things were a bit more updated during his “show” and not so messy. Messy meaning he didn’t do that great of a job cleaning up after himself when he left after face painting and after his show. So, I’m being generous with a 4 star review. He played some guitar and did some songs with the kids. The kids liked his guitar and his colorful wigs and noses. Overall, it was a kids party and they were entertained! Thanks much for the last minute entertainment. The only advice I would give would be to not classify yourself as a clown in the listing because that’s not really the service that was provided... painting and making yourself up as a clown in front of the kids isn’t really a clown. And by doing that it seemed to bore them and they seemed very uninterested in that. When someone is hiring a “clown” for a party they don’t expect to have the clown do their makeup in front of their guests- it was weird for the kids to see and for the adults as well. Just my 2 cents. Not something for a first birthday party.
Response from Finnegan's Rainbow of Fun:
The client clearly doesn't understand what a clown is and then goes on to say I made the children laugh like that is a small thing. To quote her " Overall, it was a kids party and they were entertained!" That's what I get paid to do and that rates a 5 star review every time regardless of what she thinks. The definition of a clown is a funny person and the children laugh from the time I walked in until the time I left. Turning into a clown is part of a comedy routine which is very funny and the children were not bored. They laughed through the entire routine. What I get praised for and have dozens of 5 star review on other sites for is turning into a clown in front of the children because many children are afraid of clowns and turning into one in front of them eliminates the chance of scaring someone when I walk into the party. It teaches them what a clown is. To say turning into a clown in front of the children doesn't make you a clown I'm sad to say is just shear ignorance. Also not understanding that a hobo clown wears old funny looking cloths and uses old tattered props because I am a make believe homeless person is just not understanding what a hobo is and not understanding clown humor. I am just hoping when people read this review they will see the line that say, the children laughed, the children were entertain, I came early and I was very professional. If that doesn't merit a 5 star review, nothing does. If hiring someone who makes the children laugh and entertains them isn't the type of person you want to hire, you don't want a clown. Also not understanding that there might be a little mess to clean up after a party is not being very realistic. There was a little paint left on the table that needed to be wiped up but that is normal and expected. By the way, I don't understand why she gave the review. As I left her husband said he wanted to give me a 5 star review. This is like some of the reviews you see on Yelp that just doesn't make any sense.
Mr. Finnegan was very nice. My child was too young to know what was going on but the other kids really enjoyed themselves and the parents were very happy with his performance as well. I would definitely ask for Mr. Finnegan again.
Response from Finnegan's Rainbow of Fun:
Strange how some people think there's something wrong with giving a 5 star review. The children loved it, the parents loved it and she would hire me again but it is only a 4 star review. What then is a 5 star review? Hopefully this is enough to convince someone else to hire me.
