Washington, DC's Silliest Kids Entertainer
Welcome to Striped Socks Entertainment! Striped Socks Entertainment can bring fun and laughter to children of all ages no matter the kind of event! Ian is available for birthday parties, county fairs, corporate events, community events, public library, schools and underwater basket-weaving classes (okay, maybe not that last one). Ian can bring balloon twisting, magic shows, juggling, and ventriloquism to your event today as Ian the Balloon Dude or Ian the Magic Dude. He also has a crazy red-nosed "alter ego" known as Stripes the Clown, available upon request!
Here's What Ian Can Do For You
Birthday Party Package
Got a little one's (or maybe big one's) special day coming up? Let Ian help you celebrate! Ian can entertain kids and adults alike with a 30 or 45 minute interactive, high energy variety performance that makes YOUR BIRTHDAY CHILD the star of the show. Through whimsical magic, ventriloquism, juggling and zany antics, Ian will help you and your child make birthday memories that last a lifetime!
Available as Ian the Magic Dude and Stripes the Clown.
Ian is an expert balloon artiste who sculpts balloons into all kinds of crazy shapes. Anything is possible using balloons, including dogs, cats, unicorns, kangaroos, whales, mermaids, dragons, superheroes, airplanes, the Eiffel tower, snakes, Elvis on a motorcycle...you get the point. Ian will be happy to make balloons after a birthday show or for a large crowd at any event.
Available as Ian the Balloon Dude or Stripes the Clown.
Magic Shows for Events
Want feats of wonder and illusion? Need to see some presentations of prestidigitation? Ian will be more than happy to appear as Ian the Magic Dude and perform a 30 to 60-minute show that features comedy magic geared for a family audience. Be forewarned, however: even with no red nose, Ian will spare no ounce of hilarity or wonderment in any magical entertainment adventure!
Available as Ian the Magic Dude.
"Stripes did a backyard performance for us this morning, and it was fun! He showed up a few minutes early to set up, entertained our kiddos with his gags, and even did some magic. He was also very easy to communicate with to set up the show. Thanks, Stripes!" - Stephanie K.
"Ian was wonderful. We are holding our first meeting tonight since the Labor Day Picnic and all of the representatives of the local unions are commenting how much their membership marveled the clown. Thanks so much. Ian was great" - Don S.
"Stripes performed in our home for my son's first birthday party and it was great! We had a variety of ages of children in attendance and everyone had fun - including the adults! Stripes made sure to connect with the children and involve them in his tricks. He even involved my husband, which was a lot of fun. After the show, he made balloon animals and hats for everyone. It worked out really well and we've received a lot of positive feedback from our guests. We definitely recommend Stripes! - Devon D.
