Top Clown related questions
Can I hire a female clown?
Yes, absolutely! If having at least one female clown is important to your event’s theme, you can certainly hire them. Just be specific in your post and include a short description of the nature of your event and why you specifically need female clowns. Within a few minutes, you can receive replies and free quotes from interested female clowns.
How long does it take to do my clown services?
The time it takes can vary depending on the complexity of the clown act you request. While some acts take some preparation and use some complicated props, the usual duration of a clown Tasker’s services can range from 20 to 30 minutes. You may request a slightly longer performance, but this should be within reason.
Do I need to provide any tools or equipment to my hired clown?
You don’t have to provide anything to your Tasker in most cases. However, you may want to provide your Tasker with a comfortable changing area with a washroom where they can prepare their props and get into costume. As some clown costumes can be hot and heavy, you may want to provide them with comfortable seating and plenty of drinking water. If their performance lasts a long time, you can provide them with a small meal afterwards.
Are there any precautions when hiring clowns?
Although clowns are universal symbols of fun, mischief and humour, not everyone appreciates them. Note that children at the age of 2 or younger are too young to understand what clowns are and can be shocked or scared by their appearance. Professional clowns know that they must avoid interacting with very young kids lest they traumatise them. You can also make it safer for smaller kids to be around clowns by making sure their parents are always present.
How soon should I book a clown service?
The unwritten rule is to book as soon as possible. Well-known clowns in your area can be in high demand, so it may be best to secure them at least a month in advance. If you want to hire a clown as part of your wedding breakfast or wedding party bus entertainment, book at least 2 to 3 months in advance, especially if you plan on a traditional June wedding.
Can I hire a clown service for my fundraiser?
If clowns won’t be out of place at your event, why not? Note that clown services aren’t limited to kids’ birthday parties. You can hire clowns for adult birthday parties, your wedding breakfast, or even have them entertain your guests as they ride the wedding bus to your ceremony and reception. It’s also not unusual for companies to hire clowns for family day events, company anniversaries or holiday parties, so go ahead and book a clown!
What do clown services include?
Clown services consist of all the necessary activities for a clown to provide entertainment at your event, whether it be a children’s birthday party, adult birthday party, wedding breakfast, charity fundraiser, or corporate event.
Choose from different clowns for hire to work as your birthday clown or as a party clown to provide entertainment at special occasions for adults or even at company events.
Planning party tricks
Once you’ve hired a clown Tasker, they can take time with you to discuss their role in your event. They may show you a range of costumes they can wear and props they can use. Your clown Tasker may also recommend acts appropriate for your event.
Your Tasker can show you a selection of tricks they can perform. These may include entertaining activities like juggling, telling jokes, balloon sculpting, acrobatics, mini-bicycle riding, unicycling, rope-walking, performing on stilts and many more. You can choose any combination of these acts and agree on the time and duration of their performance.
Demonstrating their clown act
After choosing the type of costume you want the entertainer to wear and what you’d like them to perform, they can do a short demonstration. This can be done via video conferencing call, so you don’t have to leave your home or office.
If it’s a company event, your Tasker can show you the most parts of their performance to help you see how they can fit into the event program. Some Taskers can go to your event venue and participate in a dress rehearsal, if necessary.
Performing at your event
On the day of your event, your Tasker can go to the venue early to get into costume, get into character and prepare any props or accessories for their act. You may want to ensure that the venue is decorated appropriately for the festivities.
Your clown Tasker can do their performance professionally and in accordance with your event program if you have one. They can do their act for as long as you agreed; some Taskers may do an encore performance upon request.
Interacting with their audience
Depending on your needs and your event program, some Taskers can do a “strolling performance” and interact with your party or event guests. They can walk around the venue and do quick solo acts for individual guests. They can do balloon sculpting, magic tricks or other short performances.
Your Tasker can do this before or after their main performance or after your guests have enjoyed their meals. Remember that you can hire a service to clean up after the party’s over!
