Samantha & Friends!
Invite Pom Pom the Clown to your child's birthday party and this is what you can expect!
Pom Pom arrives with a bouquet of helium filled balloons tied with a candy weight to present to the birthday child. Pom Pom will entertain for an hour with balloon animals for all the kids, and if there are only 10 kids or less attending the party, a face painting!
If there are more than 10 kids in attendance Pom Pom will fill up the remainder of the time with games, silly juggling, and/or clown comedy magic!
Additional time available upon request!
Q. What do you do at a birthday party?
A. I do a mix of "Creative Clown Comedy", balloon animals/hats, and face
painting. Or if there are too many children for face painting, then I substitute games and
Q. What is "Creative Clown Comedy"?
A. Creative Clown Comedy is where I get to know the kids, and they get to know me, Pom
Pom, and hopefully getting them laughing and having a good time.
Q. How do you get the kids laughing?
A. I might say to a girl sitting next to a boy, "Oh I see you're here with your
husband! That's good he's not a couch potato!" Or I might say to a boy, while patting
his head, "Is that a wig, or your real hair?" This is all done as you are
meeting the kids, finding out their names, ages, etc. With real young kids this doesn't
work, (3 and under). But the older than that crowd just eats it up!
***note*** A lot of what I do and say to the kids is improvised. I have a few things
that are repeated from party to party as they can really be counted on to elicit giggles
from the kids and adults alike. I like to find the kids with a cute or unique personality
and play off them. NEVER forgetting the birthday child however!
Q. How do the kids get to know you?
A.I always tell the kids that I have a prize for them if they remember my name. I then
tell them my name and have them repeat it. Here's how it goes...I say:"It's Pom Pom
the Clown". Then I'll listen as they repeat, "Pom Pom the Clown". I claim
that I heard somebody say" Ding Dong the Clown" and act as though I know who it
is by pointing to one of the kids. They'll swear they said it right, (and they did), so
I'll say" O.K. I want everybody to get the prize so lets try it again." They try
again and I say I heard someone say, "Hot Dog the Clown". Etc. etc. Finally I
say everyone got it right and before I leave I'll give them a surprise. (A candy treat)
Make sure you have plenty for everyone.
Q. Do you do any thing else?
A. Yes I do. At this point I begin a little magic or comedy routine in which the birthday
child is the star, (if they're willing).
Q. What do you do with balloons?
A. Go to the Balloon Page for information on balloons at birthday parties.
