Planning a Kid's Birthday Party?
Call the "Best Clown in Town!"
We recently had the pleasure of working with a wonderfully talented fellow during our "Kids' Summer Fun Fair" a couple of weeks ago. His skill, poise, and many, many talents added immensely to the day's events. The kids certainly enjoyed the interaction...as did the parents in attendance. We wanted to express our sincere thanks to the "professor"...he made the day really special! So...as he says, "Don't slip up on any 'ordinary' banana peels. Call the new Clown in Town: Professor Pantaloney."

Interactive Comedy Show! Magic! Puppetry! Music! Games! Balloon Animals! (In addition to "clowning around", Professor Pan is also a real life Texas Tech PhD student!) We agree, Professor..."FUNS UP!" Call for special bookings at (806) 589-0088.
