Gilbert Giggles 2 hr Party:

0 - 15mins Meet & Greet – Gilbert enters to meet & greet the kids. Keen to network and make new friends all the while building an audience for the mind blowing stuff to come. He will perform pocket magic, balloon sculpting and other stuff.

15 - 40mins Introduction – Involves warming the kids up (no naked flame is used), a slapstick routine with bowler hat, table, suitcase and loads of other stuff.

40mins - 1hr Games –Gilbert produces the world famous, one and only parachute! There is of course a full health and safety briefing - ending with Gilbert being tumbled!

1hr - 1hr 20mins – FOOD BREAK – Time for some party food. Gilbert will sit everyone down ready for refreshment, before popping off to do his hair & make up for pt 2. He simply must look his best. A true perfectionista. Like a strong smell he won’t go away for long…

1hr 20mins – 2hrs Comedy Magic Show & Dancing Games - The show runs for around 30mins and incorporates Gilbert’s delusion that he is magic, juggling, gags and of course stuff. There will be no XFactor nonsense with the dancing games, strictly quality tuneage! Gilbert will reluctantly give away prizes from his much coveted sweetie bag, in return for promises of post-party teeth cleaning. The plan is flexible and best to be pragmatic on the day to ensure that the kids get optimum enjoyment. It can be elaborated and adapted to any situation.

The big man, Gilbert, works from his suitcase and has many entertainment options available to him: smelly pants, socks, toilet brushes, rubber ducks, and other precision comedy tools. It is essential for all good parties to be able to adapt to each individual situation.

Most importantly you do not need to worry about any of the kids activities, except for the food break in the middle. People sometimes like to have the food at different times, and this can of course be accommodated. But in Gilbert’s experience the break in the middle helps keep the kids from eating him, as they tend to naturally want something to drink and eat in the middle of the party. Don’t worry if any kids explode from excitement as he is fully insured. You can download the Gilbert Giggles Party Invite for you to print of and use.
