“Awesome, this man deserves a medal” Gilbert Giggles entertained a packed room of children aged 2-10 with absolute aplomb. He was in total control of the mayhem and able to switch from meeting and greeting individuals and small groups of children of all ages to delivering a full blown show for 45 solid minutes. It was a large community event with a lot of coming and going and anything up to 70 children in the room at any one time but nothing fazed Gilbert - he is a total professional. Fantastic value for money and thoroughly recommended.

“Perfect party entertainer” We had Gilbert Giggles for my daughter's 5th birthday party. There were 25 children aged between 2 and 8 and he kept them all completely engaged. He took control of everything meaning my stress levels were close to zero (unusual for me at these sort of events!) I would thoroughly recommend him. I’m not really sure where you got the other ones? I would put these at the bottom of the list as they are older. And then get the two top reviews already their featured on the home page with a brief link.

Thank you so much for an incredible afternoon. The children adored you, and I've had a few parents approach me since and say they've never seen a children's entertainer as good as you. For what it's worth, I was a theatre critic for a decade and doubled up on comedy enough to be on the Perrier Panel one year. I thought your act was every bit as good as many of the shows I've seen in tiny Edinburgh studios. What's particularly fantastic is that you take children's entertainment seriously - you appreciate that they're every bit as intelligent and sparky as adults, and that makes such a difference. I think we're lucky enough to be living in a time where theatre makers and comedians have realised that patronising children isn't the way forward, but even within that context you're definitely ahead of the game when it comes to party entertainment.

I just wanted to say thanks again for the wonderful work you did at Jessica's party last Saturday - the kids absolutely loved it, and you even remembered their names, which I can't do half the time. Good job. We'll see you again next year no doubt - and probably earlier, as many of the parents at the party wanted your details.

Simon aka Gilbert giggles was quite literally incredible. He came to entertain 20 under 6's at my daughters party but it turned in to 20 children plus 25 adults. Everyone was in stitches and transfixed by him. He is a true professional entertainer. He could be put in any situation, with any audience and it would undoubtably always be a massive success story. I would recommend him to anyone.... My daughter ,6 months on , still laughs at the memory of Gilbert!

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for coming to Maya's party yesterday. Sorry I didn't get a chance to say a proper good bye and thank you to you- got rather manic as they all left in the usual way! You were totally brilliant and the children absolutely loved it. Maya asked me this morning whether you are coming back tomorrow for her actual birthday (!) and was a bit glum when I said she'd had her lot yesterday! Hope you've recovered today and if you ever need testimonials or a reference etc, do shout as we'd be happy to give.

We have been using Simon for our branded book events since 2012, and we ALWAYS get fantastic feedback from parents, festivals and most importantly, children, after every single event he does. He preps brilliantly, so he’s familiar with the world of whichever book he’s in, and does a wonderful job of communicating that world to the audience. As a lot of our events are for quite young children, his ability to hold them all spellbound for a full hour is appreciated!

Our end of term parties wouldn’t be complete without Gilbert Giggles. The children (and staff) dissolve into laughter at the very mention of his name – of collapsing suitcases and tables, of silly pants and magical lights which appear from where you would least expect them. We can’t recommend Gilbert enough. He entertains and keeps the children’s full attention with tricks, games and the general silliness we all need from time to time! He is the funniest and nicest ‘area of disaster’ we know!”

Just a quick email to thank you so very much for making Tom's party go so well today, he loved it as did most of the other boys and their parents! You were brilliant! I would highly recommend you to anyone. Many thanks and kind regards
