Billo the Clown
Billo had been one of Melbourne’s favourite party entertainers for over 12 years. His shows are good for 2-8 year olds, with the big emphasis on very silly fun. Some of the elements of the show are magic, juggling, games with prizes, magic bubbles, songs and balloon animals.
Sir Les Packerton
Sir Les is one of Australia’s most famous (dare we say notorious) cultural ambassadors. Known for sewing the seeds of goodwill like wild oats, Sir Les has the lingo and digital dexterity to make the most strident harpy of a mother-in-law roll over and pant like a spaniel. Rrruff! Whether your function needs a boner fide icon as an MC or just a bit of roaming salaciousness to living up the room, give a coo-ee for Les.
The Bent Bookies are an iconic celebration of one of Australia’s most well known pastimes. During Spring Racing Carnival or at any time during the year when you want to have a rip sorting themed entertainment event, call the Bent Bookies. They will create the atmosphere of the racetrack right in your venue, you bring the punters and we provide the rest. Bookie boards with dividends, funny money, your choice of up to three races and you can name the horses all called live. We can also run men’s & women’s fashions on the fields. So leave your worries at the door, your money in our hands and the deed to your house with our associate Lefty. Remember: Winners are Grinners!
Bruno the Waiter
Bruno has the ability to fit in with any type of affair and help to break the ice and get people talking to each other. Bruno gets invited to all sorts of functions from Weddings and Engagement parties to corporate cocktail functions and meetings.
With a thick Italian accent and haughty manner, Bruno is the best person to be in charge if your main objectives are hilarity and mayhem. If you feel your function could do with a little culture, Bruno can bring along his song accompaniment CD to sing some well-known opera numbers and lead a sing-a-long of some favorite Dean Martin Hits. An accomplished entertainer skilled in improvisation, singing, audience participation and silver service flambé.
Santa is engaging and delightful and certainly larger than life. You also find that when Santa is away from Mrs. Santa, he can be a little cheeky and mischievous as well. Santa not only visits small children, but has been known to hit the high life as well. Everything from visiting four floors of solicitors as they work to hand out presents, to MC-ing corporate Christmas functions for up to 2000 people, to visiting a dinner party of 20 CPA’s and leading them in singing Christmas carols. If you’d like your next function to experience the true Christmas spirit with a real Santa Claus who can get down with the best of them ask for Bradley Croft as Santa.
35 min interactive singing show also available for small and large functions.
