are unhappy with me too because then I can prove that my words are not empty.

"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

Giggles / Pirate Pete brand is synonymous with high quality fun birthday

value for money, stress free and full of fun and laughter for everyone
including mum and dad.

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

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 tumble through this life,

dispense more cheer than gloom,

let me become so indifferent,
that I will fail to see awe in the eyes of a child,

you made me smile.
