HARVEY & HIS HAT Strolling Illusion
BRAND NEW is Clinton's Roving Character Illusion! Harvey is a giant, eight-foot rabbit that walks throughout your festival carrying a huge magician's top hat with Clinton in it! From within the hat he delivers “On-the-Spot Entertainment” by presenting close-up interactive magic and balloon sculpturing. This style of festival program is a highly effective way to create non-stop entertainment all day long and maintain a consistent upbeat atmosphere. Harvey and His Hat™ is the perfect entertainment for:
- an exhibit building
- street events
- lineups to other events
- throughout the festival site
- before/after stage shows
- in food & beverage areas
The roving performances are a great way to have ongoing entertainment between scheduled events without the need for elaborate setup space and time.TOP Δ
FESTIVAL FOOLING Stage Show
The flagship show that started it all! Festival Fooling is a customized, innovative and unique stage act which blends magic, music, mockery, and mayhem into a high-energy, interactive comedy show! It can range in length from 20 minutes to an hour and is suitable for crowds of 20 to 1500. A key feature of the act is the full involvement of the audience, where volunteers are actually drawn into the performance and become the true stars of the event! This show features many of the routines that have earned Clinton five international performance awards; unbelievable entertainment pieces that have taken him around the world including:
balloon sword swallowing: Okay.. a little difficult to explain, but guaranteed to have you holding your sides in pain with laughter, as Clinton attempts his version of a classic!
cowboy card trick: An amazing comedy piece originally developed and performed for the World-Famous Calgary stampede... now you can see it at your event!
totally hooped: The classic Chinese linking rings, performed with giant hula hoops. This act was featured at mulitple performances during the 2010 Winter Olympics... it was so well received Clinton now includes it in all his shows!
Three different programs can be presented in a day, with new routines in each show. Unbelievable illusion plus hysterical comedy and audience participation combine to create world class family entertainment.TOP Δ
THE ESCAPE Publicity Stunt
Yes, Clinton W. Gray will risk his life for your event! Using regulation law enforcement equipment, he will perform a modern re-creation of the infamous Harry Houdini's straitjacket escape! Volunteers from the audience (maybe local business people or politicians) are encouraged to be as creative and as efficient as possible when strapping him into the restraint. Clinton will then attempt a dramatic escape from the jacket in less than three minutes hopefully beating the record set by Houdini in 1925.
Whether done hanging upside down or on stage, this is the perfect hook for your event, and will create a “must-see” mentality when promoted through radio, television, and newspaper advertising.
Please understand that the "hanging" escape is not always possible and there are extra costs associated including rental of equipment and on-site safety personnel.TOP Δ
