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

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 Kenny good with kids?

Kenny is a certified teacher who graduated from CCSU and has been working in public schools as an educator since 2011. 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. His modern act and never-scary appearance are not only fun, but engage kids in a way they understand and feel comfortable with.

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

See what real clients have been saying on Google, GigSalad, and Facebook:

What does he do?

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

For his balloon-twisting comedy station, Kenny twists everything 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.

For his magic show, Kenny will fill a 30-minute set with tons of jokes, tricks that “go wrong”, and of course some spectacular magic! It’s perfect for ages 4-8, but can be enjoyed from ages 3-10.

And finally, for his strolling magic, Kenny will roam your party with tons of pocket-sizes surprises–whether that’s a clowny gag or an amazing magic trick!

Kenny is also available for face painting and temporary tattoos. Just ask when booking!

How much Entertainment experience does he have?

Kenny’s a true entertainer, focusing not on the complexity of tricks but on engagement, delivery, and connection with his audience.

In fact, Kenny works not only as an entertainer but on the Kaleidoscope office team as our Consulting Artist. He helps provide coaching and feedback for newer performers (such as our magicians and bubble show artists) but helps get existing balloon twisters and face painters to the next level with his insider knowledge as an industry veteran.

That’s because Kenny began performing as a clown in high school, joined the Kaleidoscope after graduating college in 2013, and has attended professional conventions all around the united states to truly master balloon twisting, magic, face painting and the art of entertainment. With 500+ events under his belt, he’s one of the most experienced children’s party entertainers in the United States.

And like all of Kaleidoscope, Kenny has over 100+ college and corporate events under his belt. Whether you want his standard package or to customize something special, everything he does can be adjusted to your event.

Is he the right fit for my special needs kiddo?

Because Kenny is a certified teacher with over a decade of experience working with children from all backgrounds, abilities, and identities. He not only has professional experience working with children who have developmental disabilities (including autism) but as a Spanish heritage language speaker can also accommodate Spanish-speaking kids (although his shows and entertainment are only available in English.)
