I am a professional, magician, puppeteer, ventriloquist, circus performer and balloon modeller.

The stars of my entertainment are the puppets.
Children love these adorable, funny characters. Sid the Kid - always hungry and asking for food.
Billy the Bird - a lovable and naughty bird who loves messing about. Possum - a sleepy fluffy little guy with a talent for voices. My party package is designed to suit a mix of ages - ideal for Birthday Parties Christenings and Weddings.

The entertainment consists of:
Circus Time - the children get the chance to plate spin, Chinese Cloth twirl and juggle silk scarves.
Magic Show - Fun magic and puppets.
For Birthday parties I always make sure the birthday child helps with some of the magic tricks, especially the one at the end which involves cake.
The puppets in the show love talking to the children and have loads of fun.
I am a ventriloquist and the puppets often accuse me of putting words in to their mouths.
I have my own party music but if you require anything specific just bring it along on a memory stick or
SD card and I'll play it on my system.
I make animal balloons for all the children.
For the two hour package I play balloon games - Mouse Flying is a great favourite (no mice hurt!)

We booked Marvin for our son’s 5th birthday party and he was a big hit with all of the kids. He was very professional and kept the guests constantly entertained. We would definitely recommend him.

Very pleased with the entertainment, we had a few drop outs and the less children than expected but Marvin still provided great entertainment for the kids and adults. He created a fab atmosphere, very pleased I booked him couldn't recommend him more :)
