Better The Deville You Know

June 11th, 2012 by Kennedy

Looking to organise entertainment for a kids birthday party? Well by way of introduction, please meet Dominic Deville (the clue’s in the name).    This gentleman (and I don’t think there’s much about Dom that’s gentle) has a great little party trick for your little ones.

Keep ‘Em Entertained and In Fear of Going To Bed Alone For Years To Come

Dominic’s clown act is a clown act with a real difference.  If you book him, don’t worry about the party, there won’t be screams of laughter, just plain old screams as Dominic will scare the living daylights out of your little guests.  Indeed, for the week before the party he will pursue his prey (yes that’s your little one), and he’ll threaten them with kidnap and all things gruesome whilst in reality they will be lucky enough to be attacked.

Wearing his gruesome zombie clown suit, Dominic tells the kids he’s going to turn up at school or at home and frighten them to death   Now apart from the hotline to social services I just can’t see school being too impressed with this demonic creature making an appearance at morning assembly.  I’m just not convinced it’s a good thing that he’ll find your child and smash a cake in their face.

Can you imagine the mind damage this guy is causing?  Maybe even enough for them to be easy targets at one of these on stage I-can-scare-the-living-daylights-out-of-you-by-pretending-to-read-your-mind type of acts?  Maybe, and that just goes to show how we all like those little butterflies associated with having the crap scared out of us.

Things Just A’int The Way They Used To Be

After reading that little lot (and we’ll come back to Dom later) compare that with clowns of old.  Whatever happened to the Billy Smarts Christmas and Easter Circus.  They had the best clowns doing the funniest slapstick routines, and the only scary thing was the loud bang when the wheels of their funny car blew off.  Really funny!

So what exactly is going wrong with our world?  We all love to have some scary stuff in our life, but clowns?  Now there’s even a name for a clown phobia, it’s called coulrophobia;  that really shows where we’ve got to.  Somewhere deep in our psyche I think we are terrified by balding, white faced men with large feet and huge lips, but their comedy antics have always balanced that out and we loved them for it.  How relieved we were that they were friendly and harmless after all. I actually think that the changing emotion, the twang of initial fear followed by the relief they were friendly and the laughter at their antics was all part of the magic.

Sad then that somewhere along the line, someone must have realised there was more bang for the buck in an evil clown than there was in happy one.  Don’t believe me?  Google scary video game clowns – they’re all over the show.

As a footnote perhaps our caution is a little over wrought.  When challenged about the effect this might have on his victims Dominic said “The clown will never break into a residence or show up at work. It’s all in fun,  and if, at any point, the kids get scared or their parents are concerned, we stop right there.”  Well that makes it OK then, it’s good to know Dom’s got a clear view on what his act’s about.

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw

Great to see #lesmiserables today. Some of the best cast in a few years. Although I thought Javert was quite poor today. Brilliant show!

Quick #nandos before #LesMiserables matinee with @theroberttemple

What a night! Fantastic performances all round at #42ndstreet #london #theatre

So I went to the record shop and I said "What have you got by The Doors?" He said: "A bucket of sand and a fire blanket!" - Tim Vine
