Meet Mike - children's entertainer in Bristol
Hi there, "Magic Mike" here! If you're on this page I assume you're looking to find out a bit more about me, so here's some information about what makes me tick.
A FAMILY MAN
I've been married to my lovely wife Naomi for the last 16 years. We have two kids, Nia (10) and John (8). Life changed for us as a family quite dramatically when John was diagnosed with leukaemia in the summer of 2015. He's currently undergoing three and a half years of chemotherapy and we are very grateful for the support of friends and family, our church - and the amazing staff at Bristol Children's Hospital.
Every week I receive phone calls and emails from parents who have been let down at the last minute by the children's entertainer they thought they had booked. This is the last thing you need in the week leading up to your child's party.
This is why I am completely reliable - I won't let you down at the last minute.
To highlight how seriously I take my commitment to bookings...the day our son was diagnosed with leukaemia I still entertained at two birthday parties. They'd been booked months previously and it was much too late to make alternative arrangements. (It's an extreme example - and one I wouldn't wish on anybody - but knowing that I honoured the bookings in such difficult circumstances gives you the confidence that when you book me for your child's party, I will actually be there.)
Recommended by parents and primary school teachers
I'm fortunate that most of my bookings come from recommendations from parents and teachers who have booked me themselves.
I'm a big believer that people book me because my shows are all about the children and making them look good. I don't try to build my own ego at the expense of the kids - I don't make fun of them or make them look silly in front of their friends.
With this approach, whether your child is naturally outgoing and confident or shy and quiet, I guarantee that they'll have a great time at their party.
I entertain in and around Bristol, UK. The prices on this website are for shows within roughly an hour's drive of Bristol. I regularly entertain in Bath, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Wiltshire and Swindon but have also been spotted in places such as Marlborough, Oxford and Wallington!
Training for children's entertainers
Over the years, I've trained other children's entertainers around the world. If you're interested in becoming a children's entertainer, contact my good friend James Kennedy at email@example.com and he'll be able to let you know about my video training programme.
