Is it that time of the year again your little son or daughter slowly growing older and you would like to arrange something special to cherish those moments for the birthday party that you are going to organise? Are you a member of the neighbourhood committee responsible for the annual street barbecue and looking for something fun to keep the little ones busy during the party? Or are you organising a day full of fun activities in the local care centre for the elderly and would you like to add a touch of humour to the day? Hiring a clown could be potentially what you need to turn your event into a fun carnival!
You might think that booking a clown is quite old-fashioned for children's parties and events, but nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, a professional clown can be of more added value to the occasion than you think. A good clown can normally bring a lot of different acts and performances, in very different scenarios. This makes booking a clown a huge benefit as you have countless options in terms of entertainment. In addition, it will also be an original surprise for those present, as they most likely won't have experience seeing a live clown at a party very often.
The great thing about a clown's act is that it can vary significantly. Most professional clowns have mastered various acts, such as juggling, and balloon making. In combination with some nice dance steps, festive music, and good interaction with the audience, there is a great spectacle created. Both kids and parents will talk about the clown for days afterwards!
From birthdays for children, fun neighbourhood parties, festive corporate events, and fairs for professionals, you can book a clown for almost any occasion. No matter what type of party or event you organise, chances are that booking a clown will guarantee a smile on everyone's face. A live performance of a professional clown can provide your party with that touch of humour and originality that often some other parties may lack.
As a result of the variation that exists when looking to book a clown, it can sometimes be difficult to know which performance would best suit your party or event. For that reason, it is useful to work with an experienced party planner like Evenses when booking a clown. Not only do we have an extensive portfolio of professional clowns, but we have also taken care of countless bookings over the years. We are happy to make that expertise and experience available so that you can book the perfect entertainment for your party.

A piece of history about the clown
The clown, an often clumsy and sometimes tragic figure, has been a common character in various types of entertainment for centuries. From street performers and professional theatre pieces to circus clowns and typical slapstick characters, clowns can be a number of things that all act to entertain.
There are many different types of clowns. The modern clown is often a combination of clumsiness and childish behaviour, and it features the classic red nose, white face makeup, and oversized shoes and clothes. This Auguste-type clown is often a joker and a fool, although he can sometimes come across as clever or mischievous as well. This is reminiscent of the typical clown that you can book for children's parties and similar occasions.
Some tips for booking a clown
Booking a clown is not very complicated, but it does come in handy to know a little bit about what you're looking for during the booking process. At Evenses, we do our best to help you find exactly what you are looking for. Below are some tips to help you get a good idea of what type of clown is suitable for your event.
What can the clown do?
Clowns are often a reference to a character that is funny and awkward in nature, but there is quite a bit of variation in the entertainment that clowns can offer. There are, for example, clowns that can juggle, clowns that can fold super cute balloon figures, and clowns that are simply theatrical magicians. It is useful to find out what the clown of your choice can offer and how that complements the festivities that you are organising.
Is the clown good with children?
A clown is often a very nice addition to a party for younger children. For that reason, it is important to have an idea of how a clown presents themself to children. In order to identify this, there is video material from previous performances and reviews from people who have already booked or seen the clown. You don't want to hire a clown that is unprofessional or too creepy for kids, so luckily Evenses carefully picks the right type of performers to work with.
