EDIT 2022: I will be on the road hosting with the Puppy Pals Comedic Stunt Dog Show from 6/28-11/1. Crickett is Washington DC's very own Family Friendly Danger Clown, Stilt Walker, Balloon Artist, Street Performer, Magician and more! Crickett is a veteran of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus where he spent 5 years performing across America as a star performer, ambassador of laughter, and international representative of the Greatest Show on Earth! Since then, he's adapted his critically-acclaimed comedy juggling show, dazzling balloon creations, and hilarious antics to audiences of all sizes! Specializing in Birthday Parties, Festivals, Corporate Events, Themed Parties, Strolling Artistry, and Pirate Parties, Crickett has delighted audiences across America and other countries for the past 12 years. Since then he's performed with Cirque du Soleill, Big Apple Circus, Ringling Bros &Barnum & Bailey and for clients such as Verizon, Barefoot Landing in Myrtle Beach, Yankee Candle, and much more! So if you're looking for a Comedy Juggler, Pirate, Character, Comedian, Balloon Twister, Fire Eater/ Juggler, Neo-Vaudevillian Performer, Emcee, Magician, Stilt Walker, Face Painter, Unicycler, Human Statue, etc… Juggling/ Magic/ Comedy Show: Book the family friendly juggling and magic show and prepare to laugh! This is the show that was created at the Ringling Bros. Circus and perfected on the Boardwalk Streets of Myrtle Beach! Fun for the entire family, this show can be tailored to all different demands and age ranges. From personal birthday parties to churches to stages to gymnasiums to festivals; outdoors and inside; audiences large and small; kids and adults; this one is guaranteed to delight everyone! Though it can be tailored to suit your particular needs, popular acts include juggling balls and clubs, diabolo, devil sticks, magic tricks, bad jokes, worse puns, and even a danger section with knives, fire juggling, fire eating, and fire breathing! Completely insane, completely interactive, and completely insured, Crickett brings his 14 years of professional experience to life in front of your very eyes! Pirate Show: Ahoy Maties! Captain Crickett invites you to join his crew of surly seafarers with a nautical themed extravaganza! Containing everything from the Juggling/ Comedy/ Magic Show, Captain Crickett puts a pirate spin on his show and invites the audience to become true pirates by balancing "real" golden plates on top of authentic pirate swords gifted to him by Blackbeard himself... or at least a guy with a black beard. Hilarity ensues as Captain Crickett walks the plank, does a jig, and leads the audience on a pirate quest his audience will never forget! Holiday Show: Ho Ho Ho! The worlds tallest Christmas Elf, "Elf"is Costello just wants to spread the Holiday Joy with by juggling candy canes, making balloons, and riding an elf-sized bike that was gifted to him by Santa himself which he has long outgrown! Whether he's strolling, doing a stage show, of just hanging out, Elfis Costello is great for any Winter Holiday event, no matter what holiday you're celebrating! Assisted Living Shows: Fun for everyone, Crickett performs a dynamic, fun, and respectful vaudeville-themed show perfect for elders! Balloons: Go beyond dogs and swords with all types of magical balloon sculptures including lions, tigers, bears (oh my!), tree frogs, penguins, swords, helmets, special holiday balloons, and even characters from Frozen, the Avengers, and Spider Man! Stilt Walking: A favorite for festivals, trade shows, parades, parties, and anywhere with a high enough ceiling! Book a Pirate, Golfer, Tuxedo, Uncle Sam, Toy Soldier, Xmas Elf, or custom character to give hi-fives, dance, make balloons, or just draw attention to your event now! Living Statue: Did that statue just move? Delight, confuse, and amaze guests at your event when you install a statue of a pirate that not only moves, but delights guests by interacting through subtle yet hilarious movements. Fire Performer: Did he really just do that!? Nothing makes and impact like fire and Crickett understands fire is awesome but really dangerous! Crickett has a perfect track record with Sticks, Clubs, Diabolo, Balls, and Fire Eating/ Swallowing and is completely insured to make a huge impact with this awesome stunt. LED props also available when fire is not permitted or advisable. Grown Ups: As an emcee, performer, cabaret and neo-vaudeville superstar, Crickett can liven up trade shows, conventions, concerts, and all sorts of events! As seen with the Dirty Bourbon River Show, Clown Cabaret, Floyd Festival, Cabaret and Burlesque Festivals, Crickett has adopted his Adult-friendly alter-ego Jim Dandy to perform classic sideshow and magic stunts with a contemporary flair. Marvel at the Human Blockhead, Geek (I bite the head off a bloody tofu), Bed of Nails, Glass Walker, Fire Eater, and all sorts of crazy stunts!

Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on October 15, 2022From Germantown, MD

I REGRET hiring Crickett for my client's event. - He was on his phone texting the majority of the event (there was no valid emergency or reason) - He was sent home early because of his poor performance and negative attitude - He gave attitude to the 2 year old birthday boy because the 2 year old popped a balloon - He seemed like he hated his job - Guests complained about his demeanor the entire time - His demeanor was so poor, I was embarrassed that I chose him for the party. I asked for the deposit back and he refused. I ended up refunding the client in full ($250) myself for his poor service.


Thank you for your reply. While I certainly appreciate that this agent l feels that they did not receive the level of service expected, when I left this event the agent seemed happy, as did the client and party guests. But regardless of whether I receive a positive or negative review, I learn something new from each engagement/gig, and am appreciative of the time I spent at this party. With that said, there are some significant inaccuracies in this review, including the claim that I refused to fully refund the client. I offered a full refund, as per my satisfaction guarantee. I believe the other reviews on this page offer a more accurate picture of my skills and

Crickett was wonderful. He was on time and made amazing balloons for the kids. He was endlessly patient with them - the kids popped a lot of them! His designs were very good and the color selection was great. I would highly recommend him!

Crickett is just wonderful. Even in a rainstorm, perfect, timely kept not just the childrens’ attention but also the adults. Great magician and balloon twister.
