We had the pleasure of having Twinkles come to our home on Saturday for my son's birthday, which by the way was FANTASTIC, the kids loved her.

I wanted to say THANK YOU for having such a great team. We had an incredible turnout ... for New Year’s Eve and everyone raved about the Clown Cartel trio. I couldn't have agreed more that their presence really helped tie the event together. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Magic Station

Thank you so much for the wonderful performance at our school carnival on Friday – the kids are still buzzing about it! My daughter, age 9, loved the bunny and was so excited that she was able to pet it! Thank you for helping us make the day as memorable as we had hoped!

Pirate Patty

Just a quick email to let you know how much we enjoyed Pirate Patty at our Family Night at Our Lady of the Prairies School! The kids were so excited and absolutely loved the magic show! We thought the tricks were really neat and of course, the rabbits were a big hit. "Pirate Patty" is such a composed young entertainer, and was very professional in terms of communicating with us, setting up, and of course, presenting her show. Thanks to you as well for making everything so easy and pleasant to arrange.

Everyone was sooooo pleased with the entertainment. Your crew provides unique entertainment that is interactive and fun. Thank you!

Santa Parade - Northgate Mall

I felt so bad changing things at the last minute on you (and your performers). It's nice to know that when things don't go according to plans, Clown Cartel is always able to roll with the punches. You guys are the best!

Strolling Comedy

Sometimes a thank you card is just not enough. Our residents loved you so much and so did the staff!!! You really helped ease the waiting line, too. Residents came up to me afterwards and said, “This was the best volunteer appreciation. This time I really felt special.” I know this is what you mentioned to me on the phone, how the goal was to make everyone feel special, and you did that ever so well!


Kiwanis Place - GEF Seniors Housing

Dour Domestics

I just wanted to drop a line to thank Mr Thornbury and Ms Salt for their excellent services at my 50th birthday milestone event last week. They were VERY well received and people are still chuckling – and/or wondering WHERE those folks came from!


AB Environment People Services

Her Majesty - Customized Comedy

Just wanted to let you know that Anne was absolutely amazing! Her ability to bring laughter to a room set the tone for a wonderful birthday celebration. She is truly a gifted comedian and as a result I had two people come to me after wanting to find out how to book her.

Val, you and Iain were great! Thanks for leading us in a wonderful afternoon of fun and laughter.

I just wanted to pass on a big thanks for the event last night. Everyone had a blast and you guys put together a spectacular event once again. Your group of people are so friendly and do such a great job.

I just wanted to write and say thank you so much again for Saturday. Iain, you went above and beyond the call of duty and far surpassed our expectations. You were a total hit with the crowd, and David loved the surprise. We will definitely keep your group in mind for future events. Thank you so much again!
