Dour Domestics (Service with a Sneer)
Wild West Saloon - Saloon Girls with Jail Set
"Cool Yule" Casino - Reindeer Races
Just because you’re an adult, it doesn’t mean that you don’t get to have fun anymore. At Clown Cartel, we believe that fun is something that we should always make time for, no matter what stage of life we’re at. That’s why we’ve devised a series of fun events and games for our grown-up audience.
Dour Domestics (Service with a Sneer)
A dour Victorian maid or butler will greet your guests, hang their coats, pass food trays, and generally deal with all the “domestic trivia” to allow you to mingle with your guests. The only difference is that our domestics do it with attitude.
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
Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you what a delightful evening we had last night with Miss Parsnip. As the "Maid from Hell" accompanying the dinner party from the Board of Directors of the Pilgrims Hospice, she truly "maid" our evening a delight! She was fantastic!
Gail and Brian Faulkner
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!
Our comedy characters see laughter in your future as their insightful readings unfold.
Everyone enjoyed Madame Cassandra's fortunes :) Thanks for everything.
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
I want to thank you for the wonderful job that you did at our event on Tuesday evening. The crowd really enjoyed the entertainers!!
"Miss Kitty" was great and stole the show!! She brought all the ladies together and really involved them with one another and by the end of the night there was a Huge circle of ladies all talking and laughing.
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.
All rise! Court is now in session. The Queen of Hearts is presiding, and Wonderland characters are attorneys for the defence and prosecution. Information about the people in your organization provides a framework for this customized interactive event in which your staff and VIPs are defendants and witnesses.

Fun Money Casinos
“Take a gamble” on our interactive casinos. Our events are designed to be fun and fair. Although the guests play individually, they’re all part of a team so that no one need be eliminated simply because they may have had a couple of bad hands. The team supports each of their members, and everyone can continue to play right to the end.
"Pick a winner" from a variety of themes
Do you like jazz music and the glamour of a 1920’s speakeasy? It’s easy to dress up. We have 2 different options:
Capone's Back Room – Welcome to Chicago. Gangsters blatantly laugh in the face of Prohibition. Shooter’s Nightclub plays host to this gangster-themed casino and the big winners can buy in to the poker game hosted by Mr. Capone himself.
1923 Flapper Frolics – Prohibition is over here in Edmonton. We’re raising funds to send the world-famous Edmonton Grads basketball team to Paris for the 1924 Olympics. And you can learn a short Charleston number at ½ time.
Perhaps something a little more rustic is more to your liking.
Miss Kitty's Last Chance Saloon – Step back to the old west where it’s perfectly acceptable to take wooden nickels. There may be gunslingers and but don’t worry. Sgt. Rodney Truenorth of the Northwest Mounted Police is on-hand to ensure everything is above board.
And for your yuletide events:
Jack Frost’s Cool Yule Casino – Embrace all things “cool”. Jack, the Snow Queen and his Cool Yule Crew give this casino an Arctic twist with their own cold, hard cash – ice crystals. The team that has the most ice at the end of the night is acknowledged as “The Coolest”.
"Flapper Frolics" 1923 Casino
Blackjack, Craps, Poker, Roulette and More
Game options include: Blackjack, Betting Wheel, Craps, Poker and Roulette. Our comedy character dealers are happy to help new players learn the rules of their games.
Laughter is a Sure Thing!
The final payoff for your group is laughter.
