In planning events here at Urban Candy Events I have had to call upon some entertainers in the Chicagoland area. For a birthday party that I am booking for May, I thought that maybe a clown, or a few clowns, would be awesome! Besides the few that are scared of clowns, they usually get a party started right!
First I called Ding Dong "Chicago's Hip-Hop Clown" and I must say that when I found out I was speaking with Ding Dong himself I was quite pleased!! I've heard many things about Ding Dong but the most important is that he shows up on time AND gives a good show.
When I called a venue that I'm looking to book they advised that I COULD NOT book a clown WITHOUT first trying Melanie the Singing Clown. "I was a birthday clown for 15 years and I taught her everything she knows. Make sure she sings too, because that girl can 'sang'" So I took to the net and started researching Miss Melanie and I must say, her packages are awesome. Her packages are similar to Ding Dongs but she has the lady's touch, just as Ding Dong gives the manly version.
In my research I came across many clowns but the site that tickled me the most was Clowns2Go with Popcorn the "Hip-Hop" Clown (photo above). I am going to call and get their business/bulk rates and hopefully have something great and exciting to report back to you. Remember, if you need to know about Chicago Events and planning, Urban Candy is where you need to be. And if you want to submit your company for review please contact me. I would LOVE to try your services and possibly book your company for an Urban Candy Event!! -Niesha Miles.
