***FEEDBACK FROM RECENT PERFORMANCES***
“I can honestly say I've never had so many adults come up to me after a childrens' show with compliments about a performer. Everyone wanted to know where I'd found you. The kids had so much fun and the adults laughed throughout the show.”

“We were looking for something special when we were planning the 6th birthday celebration party for our daughter. After spending countless hours researching different options, we stumbled upon Mr. Kipley's website. Once we saw the videos of his past performances we immediately decided that this was exactly what we needed, and this was a great decision!
Mr. Kipley delivered a spectacular show for our guests. His show was a unique combination of puppetry, music, and stand-up comedy for kids that even adults could appreciate. The show was very age-appropriate, and Mr. Kipley completely engaged and had full attention of about a dozen kids age 5 to 7 for the complete duration of the show. It was a marvel to witness the children so engaged and well-behaved.
He also provided the party with some pre-show activities which were fun for children, and really helped some of our little guests who were shy at the beginning to feel welcome and become part of the celebration. He really helped us pull off of a great party, and our daughter was absolutely delighted.
We highly recommend Mr. Kipley for your children parties, and will remain his loyal customers from now on.”?

Dear Kipley, The kids LOVED your show. And what a joy it was for me and all the parents to witness their peals of laughter and exuberant dancing. Thanks so much for engaging the children at their level.

“With three kids under the age of 10, we have been to a lot of birthday parties over the years. Mister Kipley was by far the best performer we have seen in a children's party setting. With an audience of active kids ranging from 3-11, we were not sure how well and how long the kids would sit still. Fortunately, our fears were quickly dispatched with a truly unique and dynamic performance. Whether it was Mister Kipley's interplay with his puppet friend, Charlie or his 'magical' interactions with the kids at the party, he never lost the kids' attention and provided great entertainment for the kids and parents alike.”
-Erin & Judd Hines, Glencoe, IL
“I am so thrilled that we booked Mr. Kipley for my son's 3rd Safari Birthday Bash! I couldn't believe how well he kept 20 children (and their parents!) entertained for 45 minutes. I loved the mix of singing, dancing, puppetry and audience participation. Several parents mentioned that it was one of the best shows they have seen! He definitely made our son's party unforgettable and I can't wait to book him again one day.”
