Why did you want to be a children's entertainer?
If you asked a hundred magicians the same question everybody would have the same answer. I wanted to be a magician when I had my very own magician at my birthday party. I just had to know how he was able to produce such incredible magic right in front of my eyes.
Oddly enough, though I did magic from the age of six, somewhere along the line the juggling bug bit and soon I was entertaining the kids in the street with magic and juggling shows.
While watching a magician perform I was awestruck at the animal balloon he managed to create out of a long twisty balloon and I needed to know more.
Pretty soon, I set out to be the world’s next David Copperfield. I booked my first show and the reaction was so amazing that I soon found myself studying to be a teacher - a career I said I would never do. I never taught because the shows had taken over but I was officially a children’s entertainer.
What do you love the most about birthday parties?
I love making the birthday child’s day a special one. I put emphasis on the birthday child and try and focus as much attention to the child as I can, it is after all a great kids entertainer that made me choose to entertain children for a living.
What has been your best moment so far as a children's entertainer?
I don’t have highlights in my career because I try and make sure that every party is a great party. I am hoping that by doing this I will have a little David Copperfield walking around practising his magic because he too was determined to discover the secret.
What is your favourite magic trick?
I love a trick called the Zig Zag Lady in which a cardboard lady seems to magically be cut in two and change costume or even vanish. I was so in love with the trick that when they stopped manufacturing the trick I went out of my way to buy a whole bunch of Zig Zag Ladies so that it remains the staple of my show.
What is your favourite party food?
There is no bad party food, I love a good party, a mix of chips and sweets and cake, you know, all the healthy options 😉 There's no way I can choose just one!
How does Andre like to relax?
I am an avid cave explorer and I use my free time to explore the underground. Nothing more relaxing than a day in the dark seeing amazing formations and enjoying exploring the unknown.
What is the best piece of advice that you could give to parents who are looking to host a party for their child?
Remember the party is for the birthday child and it’s that great occasion when you get to build a special bond between you and your young one so go wild and make the party the most memorable event of the year!
