Pirate Pete is Gordon Dickson

"I am sure you would like to know a little about me, and especially about how it relates to my mobile theatre productions, since you may be spending some time and money with me.

I love making people happy.  Helping people have fun has been my passion since I was very young.  I am now living the life I always dreamed of.  Here is me and Rebecca on her first day at school.  Don't we look smart !

I help busy parents and children who love to party but don't have time or the skill to organise things and who want to maximise their fun while at the same time obtaining tremendous value for money.

I was always the class clown and I can read an audience like you read stories or poems.  People react to me. The talent I had as a young boy has now grown into a strong positive skill which I would love to use to help surpass your wildest dreams by bringing you and your child the best party experience your child has ever had.

My passion is to use this skill to make your child's party their best ever experience and save you time and money.  My purpose in life is to make a tremendous difference to others by using this unique talent and I will do this with more passion than you have ever experienced from any other children's entertainer. My promise to "exceed" your expectations has helped me to become one of the most successful and respected children's entertainers in Glasgow, and indeed, in Scotland."

Mr Giggles Facts

Mr Giggles / Pirate Pete is a highly respected, children's entertainer, educator and author.

Married to Linda for 45 years, (we married very, very young !!) and father of two girls Karen and Donna.  Also “papa” to Rebecca, aged 14 years  Kara aged 8 years, Megan Elise aged 7 years, Finlay Matthew aged 5 years and latest grand-daughter Ainslie Elise aged 2 years, the best grandchildren in the world.

 Linda’s main task is keeping me in order, taking phone messages and all the 101 tasks that keeps my world ticking over.  Linda is my rock and keeps my feet firmly on the ground.

 I was born and live in a medium sized town in Scotland called Renfrew, near Glasgow that has the status of being a “Royal Burgh” although it has to be said that we did live and work in Edinburgh for a time during 1978/1979.  I again worked in Edinburgh from 1986 to the year 2000.

  With a Post Graduate Degree in International Finance (Dip FS) from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh and a Masters Degree in Business Studies (MBA) from Strathclyde Business School and a string of professional qualifications I am certainly a very different children's entertainer.  


"Mr Giggles Mission Statement"

It is my burning desire to help you create childhood memories where YOUR CHILD IS THE STAR.
Each amazing fun filled show lasts up to two hours of non stop excitement and helps build happy childhood memories which last forever, long, long after the show has ended.  As busy, loving parents you collect all the praise without experiencing any of the stress.

I understand that exceptional customer service must always comes first. 

You're going to be treated more like a friend than "just another client" or "a number".  In fact, I want
to be sure you get the right party entertainment and service that fits you and meets your needs.  

My help has to add value to your life and make your job easier or there is no point in hiring me.

The amount of repeat business I receive is testament to my first class level of customer service and satisfaction.  My policy of total honesty is something my customers appreciate so on those very rare occasions when something does go wrong I shall be completely open and honest with you and of course rectify the situation as quickly as possible. 

It is my proud boast that no customer has ever suffered at a result of something that I have done and I always aim to answer enquiries within 24 hours of receipt during office hours
(09:00am to 21:00pm, Monday to Friday)

Weekends, Christmas and holiday times such as Easter, Halloween, Christmas  are of course my busy times for performing so it might take until after the weekend before I can reply fully but rest assured
I shall respond as soon as possible.

I love feedback from my customers, mostly because the vast majority of it is good and everyone likes a compliment don’t they!  However I am even more keen to hear if you are unhappy with me too because then I can prove that my words are not empty.

If it's something I can change for next time then I promise I will.

"Mr Giggles Philosophy"

Being a full time children’s and family entertainer it helps to look at the world through the eyes of a child.   Children live for today.   They do not worry about tomorrow.   Children act spontaneously, laugh freely when happy, cry when hurt, forgive easily and believe the best in people. Indeed this describes the clown’s view of the world and this is perhaps the reason why my clown character is so real and believable to children and adults alike.


"The Mr Giggles / Pirate Pete Brand"

Today the Mr Giggles / Pirate Pete brand is synonymous with high quality fun birthday party entertainment build around the birthday child which is tremendous value for money, stress free and full of fun and laughter for everyone including mum and dad.

Many parents ask me why I do not take on more work.
After all every business is looking for more clients so that they can make more profit.

Don't get me wrong I like profit too.  After all I have to feed my family and pay the bills but I found out early on the more clients I had the less time I could devote to each one and me rushing from one party  to another was not fair on mums and dads.  All I needed was a road accident or road closure to delay my arrival at the next party and no parent wants their entertainer to turn up late.

Every parent biggest nightmare has to be a room full of excited children, many of whom are strangers,  all wanting to be entertained and an entertainer not turning up.

I love great customer service so I decided very early on in my business that achieving great customer service and pouring benefit after benefit on clients meant far more to me than profit.

You are always in control
when you hire Mr Giggles / Pirate Pete.

My "Commitment to You" is to fully understand what you want
so that I can fully deliver what you NEED.


Working Together we can Make this World
a Happy Safer Better Place.

I guess it could be said that I have found the child inside me and he comes out to play during performances.   Certainly each performance is an occasion for children to enter Mr Giggles world of magic and wonderment, to have fun and for parents to know that together we are building happy childhood memories which will last a lifetime well into adulthood.

 I believe that I am one of the luckiest people in the world.   I have a wonderful wife and family, good friends and I perform work that I truly believe is important - bringing happiness to others.

 Live is fragile, full of wonderment and always, always far, far too short so please don’t worry over small things because tomorrow will put them in perspective.

Clown's Prayer

As I tumble through this life,
help me to create more laughter than tears,
dispense more cheer than gloom,
spread more joy than despair.

Never let me become so indifferent,
that I will fail to see awe in the eyes of a child,
or the wise twinkle in the eyes of the aged.

Never let me forget that I have the gift to uplift others,
make them happy, and forget momentarily,
the unpleasantness in their lives.

And in my final moment,
may I hear You whisper:
"When you made my people smile,
you made me smile.

 To bring some special magic into your day, turn up the sound on your computer and visit:
"May you to be blessed"
 I truly hope you enjoy the experience!
