Classically Cool Event Productions
We had Mike come to our Fair Day at our church, and he was a huge hit! Everyone loved him. He was interacting with everyone as they arrived and left, juggling, making balloon animals for the kids, and just entertaining everyone in sight.
He was a little pricier than another stilt walker that we were looking to hire, but we are definitely glad that we chose to go with him. It was well worth the extra money that we paid.
Michael was worth every penny and more. He responded very quickly with a quote and answered every question and remained very communicative from the time he first sent us a quote through the day of the wedding. He arrived on time, costume was very detailed and classy, he intereacted with all of the guests and captured everyone's attention. He was marvelous and I would not hesitate to recommend him, no matter what type event you are having. We will use him again for sure.
Very professional, and I recommend him 100 percent.
I will book him again!!!
We loved Mike, and would hire him again. We contacted him last minute and he came and made the event a hit! Thanks again, highly recommended!
Best performance for our New Years Eve party. He was very punctual and very talented. All of our guests really enjoyed his performance. We will definitely bring him back.
Mike's positive and upbeat attitude, willingness to get out there and be the personality we needed, and professionalism made him the best stilt walker I have contracted so far. He did a wonderful job at the grand opening of our newest restaurant location, and I am grateful we found him! Thank you, Mike!
I hired Mike to be a mime at my company's annual awards banquet, and he was a Huge hit with everyone there! He was able to start 15 minutes early due to an unexpected, last-minute schedule change; which I was very thankful for. He greeted everyone as they arrived, and kept them all highly entertained throughout the evening. I highly recommend him and plan on using him again for next year's banquet.
Mike is a great teacher!! Friendly, patient, and amazing...Your first class will be your hardest but, just within weeks …you’ll be doing all kinds of tricks/moves/transitions that were once nearly impossible for you… Highly recommended! Andrew Gaucho Orlando/FL
Mike was extremely adaptable as we were figuring out how best to use his talent in our international education events at Stetson's Campus. People loved his Uncle Sam character. We will be planning more events in the coming semesters and expect to be contracting with him again. Thanks Mike!
Mike provided Stilt Walking Instruction for me over several weeks.
Mike's industry experience and focus on Safety are a huge highlight from my lessons. In fact, his "pre-flight" stilt checks still are with me today every time before I get up on any stilts.
He's patient and thorough, and set my expectations appropriately.
Mike is extremely flexible, often meeting with me last-minute, as I tried to cram in one more lesson before an audition.
And, most importantly, my lessons were informative, interactive, and fun!
As a result of my Stilt Training with Mike, I was able to land my first Stilt Walking gig.
I'd highly recommend Mike to anyone choosing to learn how to Stilt Walk.
Mike was such a hit at our Grand Opening Event! The kids and the staff at our location really enjoyed his performance. Mike is very professional and fun to work with, highly recommend for any event from ages young to old! Thank you Mike!
Mike is an excellent entertainer! We had him come to RiverView Senior Resort for a carnival party.
He spends time interacting with different people and making them laugh. Our Memorial day weekend kick off carnival would not have been half as fun without his awesome personality getting everyone excited. Highly recommend!
We had a fantastic experience with Mike at our walk event at Blue Jacket Park. Mike communicated well in advance of the event, arrived early and was professional and fun with our attendees. He engaged with everyone, danced (on stilts!), made balloons for kids, and generally added a huge amount of fun to our morning event. We look forward to having Mike join us again next year - he is a great part of our walk and has been for several years now.
Very friendly awesome guy we had bad weather but he came out and made the most of it thanks!
I highly recommend Mr. Weakley for any future events, he was a huge hit and all of the students loved him!
Mike was AMAZING with the kids! He did a fantastic job interacting with all the students/teachers/parents. He is an outstanding performer. He was prompt and ready for action! Would hire him again!
We had a great event and Stilt Fun added to the experience perfectly!
Professional, entertaining, a great addition to our event!
Mike was very professional and easy to work with. He arrived early, reviewed area where he would perform, was ready to go on-time and brought lots of smiles to everyone as they enjoyed his company and posing for photos throughout our event. Mike makes an excellent Uncle Sam! Would hire again for a future event. Highly recommend. Thank you!
Great time, he had a great job, with a honest price, kids were happy and enjoyed the balloons and Circus entertainment!
It was a really good 2 hour show. The kids at the club house loved Big Mike!! Will definitely book again!!
Mike was AMAZING!!!!! everyone loved him and he was so personable with my group of friends. So pleased with his work!
We have had Mike from Stilt Fun come and entertain our participants at the Orlando VisionWalk for the last 7 years. He has done a wonderful job interacting with our guests and helping provide a fun atmosphere on walk day. I always hear great feedback from our participants and they ask for him every year! I highly recommend Mike, his prices are super reasonable and he is very responsive and great to work with. We're looking forward to having him at the event again next year!
Mike is such a great stilt walking instructor! He takes his time and works at your pace and level. He is extremely easy to work with and knows what he is talking about. His enthusiasm for his job makes taking lessons with him exciting every time! I highly recommend him for any stilt walking lessons or any entertainment needs at special events.
Mike is an awesome teacher!
Our second time with Mike and everyone, adults included, always enjoy him at the party. We would have him back every year if we could.
Stilt Fun (Mike Weakley) was the highlight of our son's Bar Mitzvah! He was extremely professional from beginning to end. Mike's entertainment skills provided the most interactive, one-of-a-kind experience for ALL of our guests. He was the WOW factor we were looking to achieve. I highly recommend Mike for any event (adults, kids, or both). We will definitely be contacting him for future parties!
Mike Weakley contacted the Vero Beach Museum of Art several days before a holiday event and I'm so glad he did!
He was magical as the Nutcracker and a joy to work with. Families LOVED him!
Mike was the icing on the cake for our fall festival. The kids were mesmerized and Mike interacted with them the whome time. Everyone has already demanded that we have him back next year! Thanks Mike!
This is our first time hiring Mike with Stilt Fun and the kids and families loved it. He was an added benefit to the Family Fun Day Theme of carnival like games and atmosphere.
Mike is super professional and fun! We enjoyed his hijinks at the seafood festival!
Stilt Fun is an awesome entertainer ! We have hired him for many events and he always is a huge hit with our patrons. Our small non-profit knows that Mike is well worth the investment at out events.
As an event planner it is important to have the best talent at events. It is my pleasure working with Mike. In 2016 we booked him for two events: St. Patrick's Day Celtic Street Party & Oktoberfest. Mike is always smiling and having fun. All guests; children and adults trade "high-fives" and take photos with Mike. I look forward to working together at future events.
Mike Weakley is a Fantastic Stilt Walker. He is incredible fun and wonderful with guest. We Love having him at the Ocala Arts Festival. He is an amazing addition to our weekend.
We hired Mike for our community event, Fail Forward, in Daytona. He did an amazing job! He really helped make the event fun and exciting by interacting with our attendees and they really enjoyed taking photos with him. Overall Mike helped bring our event to another level of fun!
Mike was an amazing addition to my recent family fun walk event! The attendees of all ages loved his stilt walking and balloon twisting! He has performed at my walk for several years and is always a favorite of the participants! He is punctual, professional, and a truly great performer! I cannot recommended him highly enough!
I hired Stilt Fun for an event for a group of VIP's and he was fantastic! He was very prompt to respond to my emails, arrived on time, and went above and beyond to accommodate our bowling themed event by getting outfits to coordinate. Even though I hired him to escort our guests to the venue, he took the extra time to go into the venue and take additional pictures with our guests. It was a big hit!! I would certainly recommend them again!! Thank you for doing a great job!
Every year, we invite the community to our church for our Back to School Bash to hand out free school supplies and backpacks. This year, we did pre-production activities for the kids including free haircuts, arts and crafts, and photo opportunities. We asked Mr. Mike Weakley to come to our event to bring the hype to the kids before our production started. The kids absolutely loved him as he juggled, danced, and high fived them! We so enjoyed have Mike Weakley coming to our event, and look forward to having him come to more! He was such a pleasure to work with!
Mike Weakly of StiltFun.com was a huge hit at our recent grand opening. He was quite entertaining and engaging and the kids really enjoyed jumping to give him a "high" five!
Would highly recommend Mike for your next event!
Mike Weakley did a great job making all the children at this event very happy with his stilt walking expertise and balloons for all!
I had the honor working with Mike at Florida Blueberry Festival recently. Mike was a hit with the massive crowds of tens of thousands of people. Mike is very professional and everyone loved him. I would highly recommend Mike for any event. He will bring the event to new heights! I look forward to working with Mike at the next event.
StiltFun's Mike Weakley has joined the Foundation Fighting Blindness's Orlando VisionWalk for over 5 years. Considering we just had the 11th Orlando VisionWalk, it's obvious we make sure he's there every year! Not only is he a talented balloon twister, stilt walker & a very snazzy dresser :), he is full of energy and has great dance moves :) Children, adults and the F.F.B. staff all get so excited when we see him walk up (which is easy since he's like 20 feet tall). I can't say enough great things about him! The Foundation Fighting Blindness is definitely team Stilt Fun for the Orlando VisionWalk!
I have worked with Mike at many events and would highly recommend this professional entertainer! He interacts with guests of all ages and you know he loves what he does! Has incredible costumes that fit any event, on time and reliable!
We have used Stilt Fun for several events and have been extremely pleased. He brings so much joy, laughter, interaction and excitement to our events that we will definitely book him again and again. The children and adults love him. He also serves as our Emcee and does a fantastic job.
Northland Church thoroughly enjoyed having Mike's stilt scarecrow at our Fall Festival. He worked the crowd, posed for pictures, gave lots of smiles, and even danced with kids in the music and entertainment area! He was a great addition to our fun evening!!
Response from Stilt Fun:
Thanks so much Bryan. It was a wonderful event and I had such a fun time there.
Mike did an amazing job at our community festival. Both the kids and adults were "WOWED" by his performance. He was also a pleasure dealing with during the booking process. Very prompt, polite, and professional. Will definitely be hiring him again next year.
I have known Mike for many many years. Mostly through our Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey connections! The Entertainment community is a small community, and every single bit of feedback that I've ever got about Mike is outstanding, professional, polite and overall a very nice guy. He runs an online STILTS page, and is the man to go to when it comes to Entertainment especially stilt walking. If I was running an event, I would hire him in a heartbeat!
Wow! Mike was awesome! He is great at what he does; he can sure entertain! Young and old were very impressed. He is very polite and professional, funny and interesting, just amazing. I gladly recommend him. He'll amuse the crowd all night long. Thank you, Mike, for making our party wonderful and memorable. We will book you again for our next themed party!
Stilt Fun was a fun addition to our event. We used him to greet customers and that set the tone for the evening.
We had Mike Weakley , the wonderful stilt walking, as a party entertainment at our Resort, Mystic Dunes Resort in September, 2014. We loved the activities and his performance. He was a huge hit & everyone enjoyed his presence as part of the celebration!. We would love to have you back!!
I had the wonderful chance to work with Mike Weakley of Stilt Fun when I first moved to Orlando as a dancer and was pursuing stilt training. Mike and I met for several weeks during which he taught me all of the important skills of stilt walking and stilt performance through our lessons. In addition, he was more than happy to help me in recording footage for my stilt reel and has been an incredible contact to have in the field. During my training period, I signed up for a stilt walker audition at Universal Studios...although I wasn't quite ready yet. Mike happily met with me more frequently to prepare for this audition. A couple weeks later, I received an offer from Universal Studios to perform as a full time stilt walker in the Superstar Parade. I was ecstatic! I've had many awesome stilt gigs and experiences since then and have kept in touch with Mike. I would highly recommend him for any events or lessons based on his knowledge and experience in the stilt field, his reliability, and his professionalism!
IF YOUR LOOKING TO ADD A WOW FACTOR TO YOUR EVENT, LOOK NO FURTHER... Mike is the BEST!! He's extremely professional, and priced just right! I was very impressed, and all of our guest (from the youngest to the oldest) were blown away and had such a wonderful time. Just adding him to our event broke the ice and made everyone soooo happy!! He has such a wonderful and genuine positive energy. He came in ready to work and impress! My only regret was not hiring him for a longer period of time. I look forward to hiring Stilt Fun for all of our major events, and you should too :) Mike, thank you so much for making our daughters graduation party a hit, and giving us the best memories!!! You're an absolute gem and such a delight to be around. :)
WOW what can I say here, Mike Weakley is the ultimate professional performer, he kept in great contact from the moment I contacted him for booking until the day I needed him to perform. He is entertainment gold, booking him to perform at my Monster Jam pit party to stilt walk and balloon twist not only added a positive flair to my family friendly event but he was an fan favorite. He posed for many pics and really made the kids happy with all of his balloon creations He was full of energy and got right to work. I will certainly book Mike at Stilt Fun again and again!!! If you need a talented and easy to work with performer then go no further and Book Mike Weakley!
Monster Jam/Feld MotorSports
Thank you very much. We enjoyed every minute of it!!
I have been taking stilt walking lessons with Mike and he is hands down one of the best teachers I've ever had - for anything! He is patient, positive, dependable, and incredibly inspiring. Safety is always the top priority in each lesson. Mike is professional and sincere; he has a strong desire to help me improve, will set goals for me, and most of all he makes every lesson incredibly fun. Because of his knowledge, expertise, and passion for what he does, Mike has made this experience for me one that I will never forget! Thank you, Mike!
Hired mike for my son's first year birthday party. The children loved him and also the adults. He was a hit at the party. Highly recommend him. Very professional will hire again for future events.
Mike is an awesome communicator and made my job as an event coordinator that much easier. He was very willing to work with our theme and our guests loved taking photos with him. I wish every entertainer was as fun and professional as Mike!
Mike did an awesome job for my 2 year old sons birthday! He made all different types of balloon shapes. My son was very excited when he saw how tall he is! Overall, wonderful performance and definitely worth the money!
Mr. Mike Weakley with Stilt Fun performed at our Night Circus-themed high school Homecoming dance. Mr. Mike was by far the students' favorite asset to the event. He was helpful throughout the entire process, willing to do whatever he needed to ensure he could perform for us. The stilt walking was absolutely out of this world! No doubt the best stilt walker/balloon twister in the Orlando area. If you need an entertaining, fun, talented, and professional performer, Mr. Mike is your guy!
We hired the performer for a 50th Wedding Anniversary.This entertainer is of the utmost professional person. His character and caring for your event is his highest priority. He strives to make the best performance for your enjoyment. He has many costumes to choose from, and a wide range of talent for all ages, from small children to 100 years old. We would recommend this performer for your occasion with the highest praise. We look forward to hiring him for another event. We could not imagine a better person for any entertainment venue. You will not be disappointed , believe me!
Mike was an excellent stilt walker and entertainer for our Family Theatre Festival outdoor Party in the Park! He was so much fun for the families and children participating in the event. He had amazing energy and loved to interact with our patrons.
Mike, was amazing great performance very profresional, fun, it was a great party and he made the party!! Worth every penny and more!! If you want an amazing wow factor at any party this is your guy!!!
Mike was awesome and all of kids loved him. If you are having any type of party, I recommend Mike!!!! It will be something that people will talk about several weeks later. It was worth every penny!
Stilt Fun was a BIG hit at our recent event. Our theme was a vintage carnival as an adult fundraiser. He was so entertaining and engaging with the guests. His costume was perfect and his proficiency was amazing! Thank you for a great night.
Mike was extremely personable and engaging to our students on campus for our Mardi Gras. Our students enjoyed his entertainment during the party. I will definitely use him for future events!
We had Mike at our kid's birthday party and he was fabulous! He made the kids feel at ease right away and spent the whole time making balloons, playing games and making the kids laugh. They loved him! Highly recommend him! Mike and Azure
Wow what an AWESOME PREFORMANCE! He was such a wow factor for my party. All my guest could not believe that there was a juggling, balloon twisting stilt walker at my daughters party! If you need something to put your party over the edge for a price that is just unbelieveble, then YOU'VE GOT TO HIRE THIS STILT WALKER... HE WAS SO ENERGETIC, he interacted with adults and kids with such enthusiasm! A definate must have. He was ontime and didn't mind staying a little later when i asked him becuase the crowd was just having such a great time with him! I still cannot get over the price he charged! Just a baloon twister would have costed me double so i have to say his value for the entertainment is beyond priced fairly! If you have any questions for me please contact him via this site and i have given permission to give me as a reference. I also have pictures of my event that i can share.
I am so glad I booked Mike for our trade show. With his giant Uncle Sam costume, he made our booth the most talked about booth at the convention. He was very engaging with everyone who came by, and happily posed for tons of pictures. Everyone wanted to give him a high five, and several times Mike had a conga line of people dance through his legs. Can't say enough good things about him. Will be using him again next year.
Mike is a very talented entertainer. The kids (and adults) loved him! He is so versatile he flowed perfectly with the party. I can't say enough good things about him! He dances. He juggles. He bends balloons into the most amazing things! He interacted with everyone so well. He held a jumping contest for the kids. It was hysterical to see the kids trying to jump up and hit his hand! I am so glad we decided to book him for our party! Thank you Mike!!!
Once again, thank you so much for making my daughter's birthday party an enjoyable, fun and an event to remember.
Not only children had a marvelous time but also adults,as well. Your amazing balloon creation, fun bubbles and eye catching costume added zest to my daughter's party. You were full of color and life, very interactive and witty!
My daughter loves her cute Donald Duck balloon you made for her. Her sister wants to play with it all the time, too! :)
A lot of my guests were asking me where did I find you as you did a wonderful job entertaining us. I provided your information to them.
You did an awesome job!
Uncle Sam was a super-colossal hit at the Veterans Day Celebration at Forest City Elementary. He marched in the parade, danced and juggled during "Yankee Doodle" and flew the American flag sky high during Stars and Stripes. Everyone, kids and adults alike, LOVED the performance! Super job, Mike!!
We utilized Stilt Fun for a recent 10th anniversary event at our botanical garden. What a delight! Mike did a fantastic job greeting guests and creating great energy and enthusiasm. He never got tired, posing for photos and engaging with nearly 2,000 visitors of all ages the entire day. Stilt Fun was a wonderful addition to our event and we will definitely utilize them again!
Mike is such a great guy. Personable, funny, and talented, there are not enough words to describe him or his services. I booked him last minute and I could not send him his deposit but he worked with me. If I ever have another party mike will be the first person I book! Thanks Mike you're fantastic!!!!!!!!
Mike did a fantastic job and was extremely easy to work with! He interacted so well with the kids as well as the adults. We had so many people comment on how much they enjoyed him being a part of our event. He was very entertaining and very professional. I would recommend him to anyone. We are definitely having him back again next year!
Mike was one of the biggest hits of our festival. He was extremely entertaining, and a joy to work with. I received nothing but positive comments about him from everyone there. The kids loved his balloons, and I'm still amazed on how he's able to dance like he does on stilts. We already plan on having him back next year.
Mike was fantastic! He was very punctual, looked great (we had him wear his basketball costume the 1st half of the event and his colorful costume the 2nd half ) and was wonderful with the kids. Would definitely use him again for another event.
