About Gerard the Clown:


Gerard the Clown's love for magic and clowning has come a long way. He started performing as an amateur comedy magician at birthday parties at the age of 12. Gerard performed magic tricks from a Hocus Pocus set which he had bought, and incorporated some jokes into the routine as well as to his presentation. At the age of 13, he took part in a talent contest in High School and came first. It was then that he realized, this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.


Gerard the Clown started out in 1988 as a professional solo artist. He entertained at birthday parties, family fun days, schools, libraries, shopping malls, festivals, carnivals, concerts and a whole lot more. It was meant to be a hobby and a sideline job for an extra income. At the time Gerard had a full time job at the SANDF Entertainment Unit. He soon realized that his hobby was fast becoming a small business. It was not long before Gerard resigned from the Defence Force and became a full time freelance artist. At first he worked for various entertainment agents and agencies throughout South Africa but subsequently he decided to start his own entertainment agency. With all the time in the world to be dedicated to his new project, the little business soon grew into a big successful agency. In only two years, his agency grew into an Entertainment and Events Company.

At the age of 11, Gerard's son Ricky, also showed an interest in the industry and was one of South Africa's youngest jugglers. Gerard is still growing the company and Ricky is learning the ropes. He will soon become part owner and will eventually take over the business.


So you can be reassured that Gerard the Clown Events and Entertainment will still be around for a very long time.

Gerard the Clown Events and Entertainment strives to put a smile on every face. We believe in quality service and entertainment. We book only the best in the business! We look forward to hearing from you soon.
