We booked Professor Paradox to entertain 40 children, some of whom are on the autistic spectrum. He went down fantastically!!
The children enjoyed the simplicity and the active involvement (if they wanted to). Would definitely recommend..we will be using him again..Thank you.

The Kids Loved it!

My children and I really enjoyed the show at Lilly's birthday party. Every child was given the chance to feel special and be part of the show if they wanted to. Lots of laughter and smiles and not forgetting silliness ! The kids loved it . Thank you for an awesome afternoon

Amazing !

Your performance at Bobby's birthday party was such a hit with the children. One mum said ‘you have no idea how I'm feeling right now, for the first time I watched my son laugh, take part and let himself go! He normally sits on my lap and is too shy to take part and enjoy it.’

Thank you

What an amazing entertainer!

We booked Professoer Paradox to entertain approx 65 school children for a Christmas party - what a fabulous choice, the best the school has had! Within seconds he had all the children's full attention (no easy task when you are dealing with a range from 4 to 11 years) and it never once weavered. He was extremely skilled at getting them all to engage with him and revelled in any exchanges with any potentially cheeky characters, including them in the fun. He has such a delightful sense of fun and mischief, his slapstick routine and 'tricks' appear so natural yet must have taken some careful planning and the whole room was spell bound one moment and then roaring with uncontrollable laughter the next. In truth I too haven't laughed so much in a long time. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a room full of happy faces.Thank you for the joy you gave us all.

A great performance!

I read your excellent reviews before I made a booking and I wasn't disappointed. Your performance is beautifully honed and you kept 16 children (and the adults too) laughing and fully engaged. Really impressed! Thank you.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for the fabulous entertainment you provided for my twins 5th birthday party today. Funny, engaging and surprising you were an absolute delight for the children and adults! We will definitely make further bookings in the future. Thank you.

Xan's Party

Thank you for making Xan's party so special. He loved the show especially because it was 'extremely funny'. The children were all so happy after laughing so much - it was lovely to see.

The Best Kids Entertainer I have Seen

The best kids entertainer I have seen in a while. Kids were thoroughly enjoying it, fully engrossed into it. Such silly simple things but great laughs.

Fantastic Show

One of the best if not the best children's entertainment I have ever seen

This facility is fairly new so here are some reviews from various sources from over the past 25 years …

“It is extremely difficult is a school like ours (special school for Social Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties) to find a performer who can appeal to children from the age of nine, right up to young adults of sixteen. Mike proved that he could do that. He delivered a performance full of humour and flexible enough to involve the inevitable hecklers in our audience! Coupled with this was the actual design of the show and the metaphorical lessons to be learned from the scripts. A real and rare triumph at our school.”

Murrough McHugh, Assistant Head, Florence Brown Special School , Bristol

“By the end of the show I was completely exhausted from laughing so much – I couldn’t have laughed any more!”

Max, Laura and Anna

“Mike I just want to say a huge thank you for keeping 38 children enthralled
for over an hour! You were fabulous and the boys especially my youngest
Gilberto has been telling everyone about you farting!”

(Note to parents – this boy was clearly too young to fully appreciate my virtuosity on the trombone!)

“Really very pleased with how the day went, a huge thank you from us all.
Will certainly spread the word,
Thanks again”


“Professor Paradox has performed at our national play day event for several years and other play area opening celebrations. His shows bring screams of excitement and joy to children from start to finish and are a great to watch for adults as well. A parent that attended one of our events told us that her daughter remembered Professor Paradox’s show months after the event and it had been her favourite part of the day. I
can honestly say we have never had any bad feedback about his show and we look forward to booking this unique performer in future years”.

Robert Parr
Senior Play & Youth Facilities Officer
South Somerset District Council

“All the children had a great time, they are still talking about it!”

G B  – Mum and Marketing Manager

Entertainer for Festivals and Events

Green Scythe Fair 2009

“Professor Paradox’s humour was great; it appealed not just to the children but to the adults there too, but there was nothing that went over the children’s heads. Children are a good judge of “fun” – if they like it, they’ll stay and stay they did and their laughter carried across the South Lawn. We hope very much to have the Professor back again next year.”  

Mathew Applegate – National Trust Visitor Services Manager

“We all really enjoyed the show – you really have made Amy’s parties this year and last year very special. I know many parents who see organising a child’s party as a drag but we think of it as a great opportunity to organise the most entertaining and enjoyable celebration we can and your shows have been a very big part of making that happen!”

Amy’s Mum

“Really enjoyed the performance. Prof Paradox had to adapt his show due to younger than expected children dominating the audience, but they loved it and had a fantastic time.”

Yeoford Village Hall

“Your show was pitched absolutely perfectly to the audience. You really got the measure of the youngsters there, and got everyone involved with just the right level of humour, bringing even those more outspoken youths into the show and giving them the opportunity to laugh at themselves.
The exit comments I received were very good, with one teenager asking if you were coming back every year as yours was the best bit of the whole event.”

Amanda Matthews, PR and Marketing Manager, Yarlington Housing Group

“I’m surprised the school hall still has a roof on it – I have never heard the children enjoy themselves so much!”

MR – Head Teacher. Bridgewater

“Thanks for the show that you did for our SWAN party.  We all felt that it went down very well with all ages and you were very adept at bringing out the obvious talents, and confidence of some of our younger members!”

South West Adoption from All Nations

“Just a note to say a BIG thank you for your great show today.   I’m sorry I didn’t get to watch as I was stuck in the kitchen, but it was wonderful to hear the children laughing so spontaneously.  Dad said Mary hardly moved a muscle – she was so enthralled.”

Heather W – Exeter

“Dear Professor,

I wanted to write and thank you very much for entertaining the children so brilliantly at Ben’s party. We have received great feedback from the other mothers who stayed for your show and it was fantastic the way you captivated over twenty children for more than an hour with such a clever performance. Hope to see you again for Ben’s 6th Birthday party!”

KSS Wiltshire

“I have never seen anyone who can keep the attention of these children for as long as you did. A terrific performance full of engaging humour and slapstick. Our children have a range of complex  emotional, behavioural, and learning difficulties, but they responded with warmth and enthusiasm to this show. A really positive end of term treat for all involved.”

MM – Florence Brown Special School

“Thanks so much once again for such a wonderful, intelligent and original show! It really made everyone so happy, young and older alike! Alice has been talking a lot about the show today and re living some of her favourite bits.

I think all of us who know him were amazed by the bridge you built with Sam  who has hitherto been seen as almost uninvitable to parties due to questionable behavior. He has been so bad in the past at parties and so naughty at school that we didn’t really want to invite him!
It was nice to see him joining in so well in the show and I think all his class mates saw him in a different light yesterday.”

BT   Somerset

“I’m glad you played a big part of such a successful day….”

Special Projects Officer, Sport Arts & Leisure
South Somerset District Council

“Thank you so very much for your wonderful performance on Saturday! I think every single person was very impressed, and people have been coming up to us afterwards and mentioning you. The kids were tired and wired and you had them spell bound! You had the adults spell bound too!”

K S – Glastonbury

“My niece saw you last year and hasn’t stopped talking about your show and she is still talking about it!”


“I really like the way you don’t patronise the children, but meet them on their level, and they loved every minute of it”
