Why did you become a children’s party entertainer?

I became a children’s entertainer because I believe children deserve that special moment to be celebrated. I’ve worked and taught children of all ages when teaching martial arts. To see children excel in areas such as confidence in their ability and themselves is the most rewarding thing. You want the children to feel comfortable within the space to be themselves, free and open. I believe that is key for becoming a children’s entertainer. You want that child and their friends to all be comfortable while enjoying the party. Most of all you want the parents to see that their children are enjoying themselves.

What or who was your biggest influence for your Olly “G” character?

Olly “G” came from my natural style and the clothing I wore during my training to become a children’s entertainer. People commented that it made me look a little like Olly Murs (blush) and that inspired the name Olly.

And to add just the right amount of corny, the “G” came from the X-Factor contestant Honey G… Remember her? “I say ‘Honey’, you say ‘G’!” Hahaha! You see how catchy that is?

“I say ‘Olly’, you say ‘G’!”

What or who was your biggest influence for your Olly “G” character?

Every party always has its highlight and memorable moments. It’s always brilliant when the children shout out something hilarious out of nowhere. The most memorable moment for me is certainly the first birthday party I hosted as Olly “G”. I won’t forget that for a long time!

When you are not entertaining at a children’s birthday party, how does Olly “G” like to relax?

When I’m not entertaining as Olly "G", I’m relaxing with friends or with my family. In my free time I train in karate and I do aerial silks as well. Anything that has me physically doing something is always fun for me--although I do have my moments of binge watching a good TV series or film. I also like to play Dungeons and Dragons with some friends where I can just live in a fantasy world.
