(written Letter head reference) “What a performance! Another great evening brought to life by your magical presence and natural ability to entertain. From My own personal point of view, having spent many years observing many entertainers, your commitment to excellence is most admirable and I thank you for your on going support and dedication”

Comments about Cherry the clown:
“Wow is all I can say. Ive seen a few kids entertainers at various events but you are truly something special. If laughter is the best medicine none of the kids (and adults) will be sick again! Thank you so much for your amazing talent” Bill Adams
“Cherry you are funny”
My daughter chose you because in her words, “you look nice and not scary like the other clowns”
“We have had others before but you are the best”
“You are Funnier than the other clowns we have seen”
“Cherry engages the children so well”
“Our son has been unsure about clowns since an earlier children's entertainer experience but was laughing, totally engaged and loved Cherry's Show “Cherry is funny with real magic can you ask him back next week" he said.
“Cherry was so sensitive to the children, he just seemed to know exactly what to do for them. “He's the most amazing real clown; including other kids entertainers, we've had the pleasure to experience
“Cherry interacted with the kids so well, there was eager participation by the kids”

Best show ever! Ken, was just amazing. We had the pleasure of having him at our booth at the parent and child show. He totally rocked the crowd. The kids were so taken by his sense of humour and even the parents couldn't stop laughing. He was fantastic with the kids and getting them involved. Definitely the best clown I have ever come across. Thanks Ken for making us laugh all day. I would recommend you to all my friends and family. You deserve a 5 star all the way:-)
Thanks for making Ben's birthday such a success! The kids had a brilliant time!

Further to your email regarding the performance at Mahora Kindergarten by Cherry the Clown. Adults and children alike loved your performance. It was funny, clever, entertaining and interactive, and at times left the children (and adults) spell bound as to where the green handkerchief disappeared to.
We appreciated your time and effort and your amazing talents.
Robyn, Judith and Maree
(Teachers at Mahora Kindergarten).
You did a wonderful job – very professional - and certainly kept all the kids (and parents) entertained with your magic, balloon fun and the stilts were awesome! I must say that the balloons were a particular success as far as we were concerned as they were noticed up town after people had left our store and enquiries made brought more customers in!
Once again, our thanks and we will certainly be in touch for Cherry to join us again next time we have a special promotional day.
Office Manager Mitre 10
The kids enjoyed your show and were buzzing when they got
back to school. I thought you worked well with the ages that
were there - I also think the kids could have easily had
another 1/4 of an hour or so. The adults enjoyed the many
puns also :-)

Cherry provided our large group with an hour of non-stop laughter! From the informative putting on the make-up and ‘dusting off the doldrums’ the children were captivated. His manner was calm, respectful and genuinely orientated to the pleasure of the children. To have each child presented with an individually crafted balloon was special. Thank you!’ Waipawa Kindergarten. Merry Christmas! Ann & Team.
We have had the pleasure of being entertained by Cherry the Clown a few times now and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for any Kindergarten looking for a reliable entertainer. His shows are very specific and his transformation show is a real hit. It is sensitive to those a little fearful of clowns which demonstrates Cherry's empathy and understanding of young children. I especially like that his shows are for the children with content directed at them and not the adults. He is interactive, very funny and non threatening. He is reasonably priced, reliable and a very easy man to communicate with. We just love him here at Sturges Road Kindergarten!
“ I really loved the way he explained to the children about clowns and showed them how he became one in such a easy and enjoyable way. You could see those fearful children relax and even the very young siblings enjoyed his clowning around” Comment from a parent.
“ He’s a silly clown and made me laugh. He’s a nice clown, not scary.” Comment from a child.
Leah Routen Sturges Road KindergartenTeacher
Your show was great because it allowed our young children to experience the process of transformation from a person to a performer. This was a wonderful learning experience that felt safe for those children who were initially uncomfortable at seeing someone who looked so different to what they were used to. It is an excellent base for ideas about diversity and acceptance of difference, and a great deal of fun. The children roared with laughter and were very pleased to have a special balloon to take home with them. We hope to see you again.
Mandy Busch,Supervisor, Maraekakaho Early Childhood Centre (Gumboots)
The children at Belmont Kindercare thoroughly enjoyed ‘Cherry the Clown’.
The show was very age appropriate with lots of fun experiences for all the children. The fact that we saw ‘Cherry’ put on his makeup helped those children who would otherwise be a little unsure of ‘the clown’.
Overall, there was a lot of laughing and everyone had fun.
Liisa,Teacher, Belmont KinderCare
We were delighted to host you as Cherry the Clown at a recent birthday celebration for one of our
children at Kindercare Learning Centre in Kohimarama Auckland. Your act and interaction
with our children was an absolute hit with the children parents and teaching
team. What impressed us was as follows.
We loved your outfit which while colourful did not scare any children from babies through to older
The fun variety of your presentation really connected with all our children.
It really tied in with
our curriculum fostering children's sense of Well being Belonging Contribution
Communication and Exploration because of how you involved them so meaningfully
while really making then laugh.
All our teaching team really enjoyed your way of communicating at a level that ensured the children were fully engaged for the hour you were with them.
The balloon making of animals at the closure was fantastic and all the children were happy to wait in line for their turn too.
We have no hesitation in recommending your show to other Early Childhood Centres.
Thank you and best
