Karen Climer’s Crazy Balloon Show

Have you had performers come to your library that make your young readers says, “boooorrrrrr-ing”? What about performers that are using your library to fill their summer schedule, but they would rather be performing for adults?

Do you have entertainers that talk about the merits of reading, but it doesn’t come across because they themselves don’t like reading? Or entertainers who perform the same tired show each year because they are too lazy to create a new show?

If you are looking for someone who loves reading and knows how to share that excitement with children, you need Karen Climer’s Crazy Balloon Show at your library.

Imagine Your Story… I am developing an all-new 45-minute stage show for 2020 featuring the joy of reading and side-splitting laughter.

Karen Climer’s Crazy Balloon Show includes storytelling, magic, comedy, ventriloquism, and the biggest, most amazing balloon sculptures you’ve ever seen.

My infectious enthusiasm creates energetic shows that encourage laughter, audience participation, and most importantly, reading.

“This woman is incredible! Her library show was amazing, the kids loved it! Both my girls and boy were totally into the show! She told a story through balloons, and her finale – where she blew up a balloon and climbed inside – had us stunned! I totally recommend her if you are looking for unique entertainment.

Six Powerful Reasons To Book Karen Climer’s Crazy Balloon Show

  1. Interactive Fun – The show is interactive with multiple opportunities for children to participate on stage.
  2. Balloons Make Great Photos – The media consistently send photographers to my balloon shows creating great exposure for your library.
  3. Real Books – As an added bonus, I use real books that children know and recognize. These books are brought to life during this 45-minute presentation. You will have books flying off your shelves and see an instant increase in circulation numbers.
  4. Belly-Laughing Fun – Your young readers will be belly-laughing and rolling on the floor. Laughter is a sure-fire way to get the kids in your community interested in books. A ton of side-splitting and age-appropriate humor will keep the audience laughing and having a great time from start to finish.
  5. Hassle-Free Show – My show is entirely self-contained. I bring my own sound system, tables, and everything I need for the show.  You only have to provide the audience. This gives you more time focus on managing the children’s department and helping young patrons use the library.
  6. Proven Track Record So You Can Feel Confident – My years of performing experience means you get a professional-caliber show, which in turn means young readers will associate the library with fun. Every entertainer claims to be good, so how do you really know. The best way to know is based on what other people say. 

Here are a few comments from parents and librarians that I’ve received from my programs:
