Welcome to:"The Best Children's Show on the Planet"
Ellis the Funnyman show has been performed for 32 years in 1,000 schools and over 4,500 private parties! Look no farther for anyone else-The Funnyman is tops!
It is truly a show like no other! The Funnyman show is a "Transformational Clown show" that takes children on a hysterically funny journey from a plain dressed person into a fully funny clown. Then he takes the children to mini “clown school”, some more magic and storytelling. He begins with a bang as he magically makes a LIVE BUNNY rabbit appear and the children get to hold the bunny in the end!! You will never see your children pay so much attention to something and laugh so hard!
I have been meaning to get the time to write you a blurb on how incredibly happy I was with your "show" Saturday the 18th at my house for Kaleb and Gabriel.
I have not stopped telling people how wonderful the show was and what a generous caring man you are. Then I received this letter and once again was touched. Just as "the good spirits came to you" I believe you came to us. I had called a "million" performers before finding your ad. Some were available to do our party, others weren't. Yet NONE of them put me at ease when speaking with them. Some even bashed other performers. Being a social worker I am all to aware of the "bad" in the world. I was just about to give up when I came across your ad and spoke with you. Your prompt response with the requested references was impressive. The praise you received was also impressive. I called and booked you. (Still slightly nervous, as that is just me). Then I received your email about how you donate 5% to the food pantries. That was it. I turned to my coworker and exclaimed "this was meant to be!!". The day of the show you were wonderful! You showed up full of energy and warmth. The children loved you, as did the parents! In fact I am still receiving compliments. My youngest is often shy around those he doesn't know well and can become overwhelmed easily. I was nervous how he would respond, yet you put him at ease. Even had him participate! The smiles on both my children's faces are what I will remember forever, the look of pure innocent amazement and fun. You are blessed with the gift of being able to make old and young laugh. Not just chuckle, but let out those real genuine belly laughs. The thoughtfulness of your gifts to my boys was also above and beyond. They are both books that my children will cherish. We are blessed to have met you and had you at our home performing. The world is blessed to have your humor, kindness and generosity. And lastly, your boys are blessed to have a father set such a wonderful example for them. Best of luck in your future endeavors and I am sure we will see you again. Till then, keep being silly!

What to Expect
When the Funnyman performs children experience hysterical laughter and at the same time have their eyes glued to my every move. I start out making a live bunny appear-the guest of honor actually "makes it appear." Then I proceed to transform into a funny man. I use lots of physical and verbal comedy along with constant participation by the children. The magic in my performance comes in the form of what I call "roller coaster" entertainment. This means that to keep children's attention you have to bring them up(excited) and down-(quiet and focused) just at the right time. After doing over 4000 shows in the last 30 years I have it down to a science!
The amazing thing is after all this time, each show I do is new and exciting as if it were my first one!
I have been entertaining children for 32 years. My vast experience as a performer and ability to hold young children's attention and laugh, along with advance degrees in early childhood and special ed has put me in a very unique category.
My show is also very unique. I actually transform into a clown in front of the kids. It was designed for young children but ages 2-10 really love my show.
You are getting a one of kind great performer and a one of a kind show!!
I have a ton of references upon request.
