You may have seen people make balloon animals but have you seen someone make Balloon Art?!
Twistin' Sam is Vancouver's top balloon entertainer where he twists, bends, and contorts balloons in ways that leaves clowns and magicians scratching their heads. Twistin' Sam is a "Challenge Twister" which means it is up to YOU to create the idea for the balloon for Twistin' Sam to make. All your favorite animals and characters are on the table!
Twistin' Sam has learned/taught balloons from/to some of the best and brightest balloon entertainers around the world. Twistin' Sam cares what it means to be top quality and strives to be one of the best entertainers in the Lower Mainland.
We hired Twistin Sam for our sons 6th birthday. He could not have been better. Super friendly, great with the kids, and endless patience. The things he made with the balloons were incredible and he was so accommodating. Very skilled, very good. 10/10 would hire again.
I have never seen anyone in the Lower Mainland twist like him. I saw him at the local Farmers Markets but what he makes at birthday's is astounding. I don't think I could ever get a balloon from a clown again.
His "Balloon Show" is wonderful as it is essentially a magic show. The kids were laughing and everyone was having fun. His talent truly shines
Price Range: $150+
Gig Length: 50 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
I am a challenge twister which means I will make whatever the person requests. WHATEVER THEY REQUEST as long as there is the time needed to do it. I am interactive and be silly with children as well as make it an enjoyable experience to watch. People have described it similar to watching Bob Ross paint.
My Balloon Show is a mix of Magic, Comedy and Balloons and is an original, one of a kind show that is the only balloon show in the lower mainland. It is a lot of fun for children but adults can enjoy the moments as well.
If you are looking for line work I have my "Cool and Fast" Menu that I bust out where I make cool designs that take less than two minutes to make. As well as being interactive and fun with the children, showing the flair, tricks and comedy that people would not expect a balloon artist to have.
Sam has been twisting balloons for over 7 years. Before Sam learned the unique skill of balloon art, he has always had a lifelong passion for theatre and performance since he was 6, acting in various theatre companies in Ontario and British Columbia, and has done various independent short films in the lower mainland. Sam has over 10 years of child care experience, working in childcare centres across BC, as well graduating from the Education Assistance Program at Langara College, on the Deans Honour Roll. Sam uses his experience of working with children to ensure that children have a positive and empowering experience when Sam performs for them. By combining his talents, Sam was given the opportunity to be cast in a commercial for FujiFilm, as well as had the pleasure to perform for many notable clients; such as UBC, TD Bank, RBC and the CBC. Sam’s passion for balloons and performance is what keeps him striving to be the best that he can be.
