History

Hi! I'm Pockets the Clown.Pockets the clown has been entertaining children for over 30 years! My father, Twinkletoes the clown, started the family business about 50 years ago. My mother (Sweetpea the clown) and father have both passed away now but I am proudly continuing the tradition with my brother, Bilbo the clown, and now my eldest daughter Pinky the clown! It all started shortly after 1986 when I told my dad I wanted to make some extra money for my growing family. My dad had been a clown and a magician since he was 17 years old, so he was able to teach me on “how to be a clown”.   I have performed at birthday parties every weekend ever since. He would be very proud that I am continuing the family tradition.

Make no mistake, I am no ordinary clown! This is my passion, and much more than ‘just a job’ to me. In order to ensure I bring the very best quality of entertainment to you – I am a proud member Toronto Clown Alley and Family Entertainers.   I travel to attend workshops all over Ontario and even the USA!  These workshops upgrade my face painting skills, learn new and unique balloon creations, interactive comedy magic tricks as well as classes on pure entertainment that I can now bring to you in your very own home or venue!

I specialize in birthday parties but the fun doesn’t stop there! I love BBQs, corporate events, school/daycare events or even just helping spice up a family get together. My family of clowns can provide a great service to you and your friends and family for a very reasonable price.  Stay confident in knowing I am a fully insured ($5 million)  complete with a legal police check.

I am a gentle, fun loving, traditional white face clown.   My job is make children laugh, smile, giggle and have lasting memories of their birthday party.

To make one person smile or pee their pants… just a little…my job is done. Give me a call today!

Party Tips

Here are some suggestions that may help in the success of your party:

  • Set a date that is close to your child’s actual birthday. Check with immediate family members schedule to make sure they can attend.    Set a time frame.  Please make sure this allows time for entertainment, food, presents and of course CAKE!

  • Send out invitations. Set a RSVP date.   This gives you a good idea how many children will be attending.     Text messages RSVP’s are great!
  • An average party is 10-15 kids. IF you have more children please contact me and we can calculate the extra time needed. Prices will vary depending on your location.   I am located in Brampton.  A small travel fee is added to prices outside of the Brampton/Mississauga area.  Please contact me for prices.    Here are the party packages

Last week we invited Pockets the Clown into our home to provide entertainment for our child’s birthday party. Pockets was not only entertaining but engaged with the children while making them their balloon creations! My kiddo loved how Pockets made him a part of the act during the Magic Show. My child said a couple of times this week, “I want Pockets at all of my parties!”

Thank you for the memories Pockets! I would recommend Pockets Parties for your next birthday party!

Cheers, Christine Hull & Family

Pockets was awesome and far exceeded our expectations! Brilliant balloons and magic and her face painting was beautiful & so professional – and many of the kids didn’t want to wash it off! She made our party for twenty 7-year-olds super easy and my daughter has already asked if she can come back next year! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!
