Improv Fun

You never know what fun and silliness will happen with one of our strolling entertainers. You might enjoy a torch relay, mime chimes, magic, juggling, stickers or just playing around with a hat or other props. The fun is in the unknown joy that can come from the simple interactions of a professional street performer. This is a great way to provide entertainment for every age at an event (with no lines forming).

"Excellent Dennis. You folks did a VERY nice job. It was fun to watch you folks and the responses from the attendees."
