Introducing an Idiot – Danny the Idiot
Hi, my name is Danny Schlesinger and I have been making children and their families laugh for over 20 years. As Danny the Idiot I provide a kids party entertainment service in Hastings, Rye, Bexhill and East Sussex, as well as the London area.
“We watched you today Danny with my 5 year old niece. Not sure who enjoyed it more, the kids or the adults! Brilliant.” -Emma J.
Let me and my expertise take the stress away from occupying a group of excited children and parents. With my calm manner and sense of fun, the birthday celebration will be memorable for all the right reasons.
Once I finished training at circus school in Bristol I started performing at family events and birthday parties. I then joined a small circus in Manchester (Circus Sensible) where I helped entertain many family audiences with silliness and crazy skills. I ventured off to Belgium to a theatre school. The lessons were in French, which was tough in the beginning, but gradually I learnt the French and the language of the theatre too.
And then I discovered balloons…! I started to use my physical comedy and circus skills by applying it to all different shapes and sizes of balloons. I then created an original balloon show which has won awards, praise and many laughs and smiles from children and adults alike.
I’m proud to say I have been awarded “International Twister of the year 2011”- an Award for Excellence in the art of balloon twisting & innovative balloon entertainment. I also took my show to Italy where the children voted for their favourite show, which I had the honour of winning. I was placed in third position at the stage competition at Twist & Shout Balloon Convention in Las Vegas 2015.
“Just want to say, that you are utterly amazing!…. thank you for the brilliant show …. by far the best entertainer I’ve seen in a very long time…. I will recommend you to everyone!“ -Nirjara H
