I perform Puppet Shows in New Jersey for children's birthday parties, preschools, libraries, daycares, camps, corporate events, fundraisers and more. I use muppet style hand puppets, including popular, well-known TV & movie characters that the children at the party already recognize on a daily basis, not unknown marionettes.
To keep the children's attention, the puppet show is organized in a fast paced stand-up comedy format and the puppets make the effort to know ahead of time who's who in the audience so they can interact & joke with them during the puppet show.
For birthday parties, I have the birthday child perform some easy & classic magic tricks, making them the star during the initial magic show. Through sleight of hand, no effort on their part is required! After, Uncle John the Puppeteer introduces the kids to his realistic animal puppets & performs the puppet show, followed by a kids dance party, complete with popular music & party favorites.
Having a special theme or holiday party? Does your child have a favorite artist? Just ask & Uncle John will gladly customize a special playlist for your event. He also brings a digital collection of over 3,000 popular songs for special requests - all free of charge. (why hire a DJ?)
After years of experience, I am able to mimic the exact voices of popular, well-known T.V. & movie characters. This gives an extra layer of authenticity to the puppets when they interact with your audience. Using a custom stage & one-way curtain, the children often forget they aren't actually interacting directly with the puppets!
Children never tire of a constantly evolving & interactive puppet show that uses over 40 popular television, movie and cartoon puppet characters. The show moves so fast, that it often takes multiple viewings to catch all the humor and jokes that you might have missed the first time!
