How long in advance should I book my birthday party or event?

We would love to make your birthday party or event a memorable one. In order to ensure availability of the date, time, and DaMissus, it is best to book your party as soon as possible. Most of our corporate and repeat families book with us several weeks in advance. We recommend booking your party as soon as you are sure of the date and time of your event.

What areas do you service for your birthday parties or events ?

We service the Washington DC metro area. If the birthday party or event is located some where else, check out our friends at findaclown.com

Are your clowns SCARY?

Our clowns are non-scary looking, they do not wear very much makeup or wigs. Please view our Picture Gallery to get a better feel for how our clowns look.

What is your booking process for a birthday party or event?

To book and secure your desired time and date, we require a 50% deposit.
