Balloon Twisting

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.

Testimonials

"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.
