I have been performing as Will E Droppit for over twenty years now but turned professional in March 1998. Since then I have had an amazing time performing all over the country in Theme parks, Holiday camps, shopping centres, etc. I have performed for crowds of a thousand people, but my main regular shows are for children’s birthday parties which I love doing, these are usually lots of fun for the children and the adults as I like to get everyone laughing.
I have appeared on the TV quite a few times most memorably on Songs of Praise with Sue Pollard. Some wonderful people I have worked with through clowning have included Frank Bruno and Kim Wilde when I have helped open new garden Centres or shops. Entertaining has taken me working all over Britain but mainly I work in the West Midlands doing children’s parties in the Wolverhampton, Walsall and West Bromwich areas and have regularly performed at the Molinuex, the Hawthorns and Bescot stadiums. The Midlands art centre and the Public are also two venues I have enjoyed performing in.
I am DBS checked and am a member of Equity and the world’s oldest Clown Organisation Clowns International. I have my face that I performed in from 1998 to 2010, painted on an egg in the clown museum alongside Charlie Cairoli, Popov and Coco. This clown face even appears on a jigsaw puzzle alongside some of Britain’s favourite clowns. And in 2017 My character was included in the first book on circus eggs for over 50 years, this is published by Penquin and is available at all book stores.
Over the last 6 years I perform mostly as Will E Droppit the magician and do comedy magic shows which are ideal for children's parties, I have over twenty years experience performing in Living rooms for Birthday parties and also Schools, Theatres, Shopping centres, Holiday camps,Theme parks, etc. I have even performed in Zoos and on Steam Trains and Canal barges as well as Castles and Statley homes.
From the feed back I get from all the happy Parents, I feel after all these years I can adapt the act to suit the occasion and have performed at 21 year olds Birthday parties, Weddings, a 40 year old birthday party, a 80 year old Birthday party, and hundreds and hundreds of Children's Birthday parties, so if you are looking for a Professional Entertainer to do the show, face painting and fill the venue with balloon models, then get in touch and I will make your party one you will happily remember.

I offer lots of comedy and fun in forms of plate spinning and juggling. This is then followed by some really impressive balloon modelling.
I love to travel, so wherever your party may be, I will be more than happy to accommodate. Birthday parties are usually performed in community centres, church halls or at your home but I have performed on steam trains amongst many unusual places. Over the years I have been able to learn to adapt my show to the occasion and always get the parents commenting on how much fun they've had, as well as the children.
