Clowning is a performance art.
Improv with practice...
Clowns exist to perform.
Laughs loom large in their lives. Big Laughs are important!
Your Guests of AAALLL ages will LAUGH and will like Toby's Clown show !



"Good" Clowns prepare carefully for effective and entertaining performances. Toby performs at no more than one very special event per day. Yours!

Make up and costume are merely two of the many tools in clowning. Toby presents the classic buffoon in great costume and makeup, but They are not what define a clown.

What defines a clown? Skill at making Laughs!! Laughter looms large!!

Costume and make up styles change and evolve over the years and will continue to do so. Laughter is sublime. Laughter is a necessity of life.

Clowning is a most free and open art form, .
Clowning actually incorporates aspects of all other art forms.

Clowns are free to show expertise or feign incompetence. Clowns are free to explore. They are really experts in their skills.
Clowns are free to succeed or fail in their endeavors.
Clowns are free to laugh and cry. Clowns are free to relate to young and old.

"REAL" Clowning is inclusive and FUN!!! .

Toby Taught Theater Arts at Denison University, NYU,Jefferson College Toby was in on the founding of the most famous and original Clown College. In fact, Toby's father, Bill Ballantine was the founder of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's Clown College. Toby attended and graduated from Clown College, working for many seasons with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus! Toby is a "REAL CIRCUS" clown, a master of his craft.
He has performed in major circuses around the world, on TV, in Theaters, Parks, picnics,and private partys!!

Circus acts stay in the family. Toby's Father was a professional circus clown too! Bill Ballantine was with the old time Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, touring "under canvas".

Toby's alter ego, THE GREAT BALLANTINE!
WORLD CLASS MAGICIAN ALWAYS READY TO AMAZE!

THE AMAZING BALLANTINE! (as not a clown, a serious serious magician)

CLOSE UP, PARLOR AND STREET MAGIC!

First, what is close-up magic?

Close-up magic happens right in front of the audience, it is magic people can not only see but feel and touch. This intimacy is what makes it such a unique form of entertainment and so different from stage and cabaret magic. The impossible becomes more than possible,then it actually happens, before your very eyes, maybe even in your hands!

Close-up magic involves more audience participation than almost any other form of entertainment - the audience is right next to and directly involved with the performance of the magician.


Please be sure to read Toby's feedbacks, just below!
