Kenny The Clown: CT, MA, & RI Balloon Twister Extraordinaire!

June 23, 2014 kscope

Kenny the Clown has been with Kaleidoscope since the beginning and is by far our most sought-after entertainer. After well over a decade of professional entertainment experience (and just as much time working as an artist and educator) we promise that every experience you have with Kenny will be a magical one!

 

If you’re thinking of booking Kenny, here are the answers to some of the most common questions we get asked!

Is he good with kids?

Kenny is a certified teacher who graduated from CCSU and has been working in public schools as an educator for over 10 years. Because of this training, Kenny engages children at an age-appropriate level: from slapsticks for toddlers to witty jokes for middle schoolers.

The biggest difference with Kenny and other clowns, as you’ll see, is that he understands children on a professional level and his modern act and appearance is not only fun, but engages kids in a way they understand.

(And, of course, has plenty of jokes that will go over the kids’ heads but will have teens and adults cracking up!)


What does he do?

Kenny describes his role at your party as “a stand-up comedian for kids”.

Kenny primarily twists balloons, from headbands to giant animals to fun swords and wands. But as he makes his way through your event, he will keep kids laughing and laughing! Everything from how he blows up balloons to how he presents them to kids is fun–his act also involves some slapstick and a hint of magic. Anything to keep kids watching him and smiling.

Kenny doesn’t have a stand-up routine or gather-and-watch act. He’s a live part of your party, and will keep everyone smiling the whole time here’s there!

What does his outfit look like?

Kenny has a ton of looks: friendly clown, silly pirate, magical wizard, lucky leprechaun… even Santa!

But as a clown, Kenny’s goal is to look like a friendly, safe, and silly adult.

To do that his outfit was designed to use everyday articles of clothing (sneakers, collared shirts, regular pants) but in bright, exciting colors that will engage kids.

He doesn’t do big white face makeup, weird red lips, curly-maybe-balding hair… because often, kids find that too strange to be approachable!

So instead of giant feet, a mask of paint, or that weird hobo-with-a-rainbow-afro look, Kenny looks more like someone kids might know. He still has a colorful outfit, neon shoes, patchy pants, and a touch of makeup. But instead of clown-shoes, it’s rainbows sneakers; instead of a giant-fake-wig, he wears a colorful beanie or fedora; instead of a giant-ball-of-plastic on his nose, he adds a bright touch of red. Throw in a plaid collared shit and some fingerless gloves, and Kenny’s outfit will stand out at your party while not being so alien kids are afraid to approach him.

It’s a great mix of traditional clowning and modern silliness!

A note about special needs.

Because Kenny is a certified teacher and is proudly Irish-Puerto Rican. He not only has professional experience working with children who have developmental disabilities but as a Spanish heritage language speaker can also accommodate Spanish-speaking kids (although his shows and entertainment are only available in English.)
