* Clown Magic
* A Little Music
* Lots of Nonsense
* Interactive fun
* Balloon Animals Galore

I've been clowning as Cambo the Clown in the Bluegrass of Kentucky and beyond for 35 years. I trained at Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, and studied clowning, improvisational comedy and acting with various teachers. I offer shows and walk-around – whatever works best for your event.

I've entertained at countless birthday parties, family reunions, company picnics, street festivals, holiday parties, and school carnivals. I've also provided reward-entertainment for school children that have achieved good academic and attendance records. Libraries across Kentucky have had me do shows for their Summer Reading Programs. I'm also part of a program that brings me each year for a series of visits to the Kentucky Children's Hospital in Lexington, KY.

My show and walk-around includes juggling (balls, Chinese rhythm sticks, and large plastic baseball bats) mixed with funny business, clown magic (doesn't work quite the way the clown thinks it should), a little music (pan-pipes and harmonica) and lots of nonsense and interactive fun. And, of course, there are the balloon animals. Lots of them! At the end of a birthday party show I make a big, elaborate birthday balloon hat for the birthday child before making all of the kids balloon animals. This is when the kids get to do the ever popular Balloon Dance. For some events I will be making lots and lots of balloon animals while keeping things lively with my clown antics.

I'm also available to do balloon twisting as a non-clown. Still colorful, but not a clown.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CAMBO THE CLOWN:

"As always you did a terrific job with our residents but most importantly the kids. They loved the balloon animals and show that you put on – that was very evident by the continuous line over the three hour period. Before the event was even over we had parents and kids asking when you would be back."
–Mark Stringer, President, Pinnacle Homeowners Association

"Cambo is hilariously funny and entertaining for kids and adults. It was a great show! We will have him back."
–Ari Fitts, Youth Services Librarian, Madison County Public Libraries

"I have been booking Cambo the Clown for over 9 years. He is absolutely one of my favorite performers and is definitely a crowd favorite too."
–Amber Luallen, Cultural Arts Director, Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government

"It is Wonderful to have Cambo entertain the children in the hospital. His magic is contagious."
–Judi Martin, CCLS, Child & Family Life Coordinator, Kentucky Children's Hospital

"He was excellent! He kept in contact prior to the date with fast responses and ideas. He showed up early and stayed 20 minutes more than agreed just because he didn't leave the kids hanging and was even headed to another gig. Bless him. He is super talented and put on a great show! We had 17 kids and 8 adults in one small room and he couldn't have done better with his tricks and talent. The kids adored him and adults laughed repeatedly. He gave the birthday girl a sweet little gift and made balloons for every kid here!! My daughter already misses him and our older daughter wants him for HER party! He'll be back!"
–Andrea Lawson, Mom in Lexington

Cambo made the event! The crowd was captivated and he was very personal and approachable before and after. His balloon animals were top notch as well. Would highly recommend!

I hired Cambo for my son's 4th birthday party. He arrived on time, in character and ready to go. He engaged with all of the children and the adults too. It was super cute and funny to see the children interacting with him. He was very polite and professional. I think he did a great job and we all had a good time. I would definitely hire him again in the future and I highly recommend him and his wonderful talents.

We hired Cambo the Clown to perform for a Cincinnati Reds Opening Day event we had back in April. Before the event, Cambo responded immediately to any phone calls and emails and was extremely accommodating and easy to work with. On the day of the event, he arrived more than prepared and went above and beyond what we had asked of him. His performance even incorporated the theme of the party. We were very impressed. Many of our guests commented that they loved having him there. You can tell he truly has a passion for making people smile. He is a must have vendor for any party with children!
