Yesterday, for those who came to the Easter Egg Hunt in Porthcawl you would have seen me and the Punch & Judy booth near the Museum. For the duration of the event I was offering free glitter tattoos for those on the hunt for the special eggs, and it was very busy indeed.
During this time my good friend Idris the Dragon was in the booth generally causing mayhem by barking at dogs, and talking to anyone who would listen! He made up for his trouble making by offering out free chocolate eggs to those who were still looking for the special ones hidden around the town.
Idris was also chosen this year by the Easter Bunny to hand out a star prize to one very lucky child. We tried to get a photo of the Easter Bunny, but Idris still managed to Photobomb it! – he’s such a pesky little dragon!
We had a great time down in Porthcawl and will hopefully be back down there later in the season.
For the last few months social media has been awash with people dumping buckets of ice cold water over themselves to raise money and awareness for ALS and other charities. I had almost got away without a soaking when my good friend Dave nominated me just the other day.
Naturally as a clown, the idea of throwing buckets of water around is a very natural thing to do, and as it was for charity how could I say no? Rather than just dump the water on my head I decided that, in true clown tradition, to create a quick slapstick routine that incorporated the challenge. With the help of friends and family, I managed to create the film below that I hope you enjoy.
If you know someone who you think would enjoy a giggle please remember to share it with your friends and family. You can also leave a comment on my new Youtube page. (Either click the Youtube logo at the bottom of the video, or the new Youtube button at the bottom of the home page)
As a professional clown, magician and children’s entertainer I constantly look for ways to enhance my services and where possible, dedicate some time to this cause. So a little while back I conceived an idea that I wished to put into practice but it would need some bespoke props. Having done hours of research, I could not find the props that I needed at a high enough quality for my show, and I began to fear that my idea may just have to remain as such.
Fortunately, I took in confidence some very good friends of mine and one of them mentioned that his extended family may be able to help. A few days passed and I received a phone call to say that what I needed was being made…. in Australia!
You can imagine my excitement when the items turned up the other day, and as you can see from the photos below it took quite a lot of Australian stamps just to get it to Bridgend, South Wales!
What can I say: the items are fantastic and I can’t wait to put them to use. Unfortunately, there are still a few pieces of the puzzle left to complete and they will take some time, but hopefully I aim to have the latest addition up and running just in time for Christmas.
This will probably be one of my last posts of 2013 as with only just over a week to go before Christmas, I have been very busy driving my clown car all over South Wales performing at numerous Christmas parties. Above is a photo of me with the Beaver Scouts of 1st Abercarn where I performed for their Christmas party last week. Everyone had a fantastic time, and all the children went home with a present made by me!
