When it comes to hosting an event, whether it be a wedding, a birthday party, or a milestone celebration, there are many factors to consider. One of the most important factors is how to keep your guests entertained and engaged throughout the event. This is particularly important when it comes to family events, where there are often children and adults of all ages in attendance. This is where I,  Danny the Idiot come in – a versatile and experienced entertainer who can keep everyone laughing and having a great time.

But who is Danny the Idiot? Danny the Idiot is a professional entertainer who has been performing for over 25 years. He specialises in family entertainment, particularly at events where there are children attending. Danny is known for his hilarious and interactive shows, where he engages both children and adults in the audience. He makes a point of entertaining everyone in the room. And is also an expert at making amazing wearable  balloon art, either hats, or balloons attached to the wrists. These are always a hit with children and adults alike. The advantage of wearable balloons is that they don’t need to be carried or handed back to a parent. They keep their hands free to eat or drink. Often they are forgotten about as they are so comfortable so photos opportunities to create memories and to add to social media are endless!

Danny’s Services – Danny offers a range of services to suit different types of family events. Here are some of the ways he can help make your event unforgettable for all the right reasons:

Weddings  are one of Danny’s specialties. He can entertain the children and adults during photos, which is a great way to keep everyone occupied while the bridal party takes their pictures. With all those combinations of people, it’s important for any children to be kept occupied. Danny can create amazing balloon art to engage and entertain the little ones. It’s also quite liberating to make the Bride and Groom a balloon for a fun photo. Just recently, over the Easter Weekend Danny was asked by a trio of teenagers to create something for the bride and groom to wear and being Easter, rabbit ears were made! The newly married couple were game and wore bunny ears for a few photos.

Danny can also entertain during the speeches. What will you do to keep the children entertained? Wedding speeches are tough as it is, and a bit of a nightmare when kids start getting bored or worse! Danny, with a couple of adults, can take the children off to another area and perform a little show or make balloons for them – leaving the guests to enjoy the speeches. The kids will feel special and have lots of fun to tell the parents when they are reunited once the speeches end.

What happens when more guests arrive in the evening? At some weddings the day guests are joined by 50- 100 or more people for the evening. Friends, co -workers and neighbours are invited to the special day’s celebrations. Danny the Idiot can create wearable balloons, a great conversation starter and a brilliant way to keep the energy level high throughout the evening. Once dark, lights can be added to balloons to give a real glow and by adding other things and creating wacky amazing designs, those cameras will be creating many memories for all.

Balloons can be premade to get the maximum fun from the event. So at the end of the party – depending on the package, Danny will hand out balloons that can be taken home, or played with at the party.

Milestone Celebrations

Danny can also provide entertainment for other types of milestone celebrations, such as Christenings, significant anniversaries, and grown-up birthday events.

“I hired Danny the Idiot for my daughter’s christening, with the celebration in full flow we had lots of excited children running around. As soon as Danny arrived he took over and entertained the children with his fantastic balloon making. Not only children had balloons, adults enjoyed these as well.
