This is what Potty's clients say:

"Thank you for entertaining our children once again this year at our Christmas Party. You seemed to have a queue throughout the hour before lunch for balloon modelling and some of the children thought it far more important to wait for their balloon than visit Father Christmas!

Then your show after lunch was absolutely superb - we couldn't believe the sounds of laughter and delight coming from all the youngsters ........including the adults." Kim, West Sussex Golf Club (Dec 2016)


"Hi Doug, just a quick note to thank you so much for your show yesterday, at Davids party, Everybody really enjoyed it, kids and parents alike. I know you made David feel really special, and made his day. Cannot thank you enough. Regards Ian & Christine Chandler.  (may see you again in future)" January 2017


"Many thanks for your outstanding work at Harry's party. We've seen all the local entertainers, and you are far and away the best children's entertainer in the Brighton and Hove area. In terms of content, empathy with the kids, and sheer energy, you leave the others standing." Anna (Dec 2016)


"Thanks for a truly amazing show....fantastic balloons, astonishing magic tricks and most of all hilarity all around......solid entertainment all through tea with those rousing pirate songs! You're worth your weight in gold doubloons." Ciara (Nov 2016)


"A huge thank you for being the most awesome kids enterainer! Wow - you didn't stop! They all loved you! Some of those children are usually quite shy, but you managed to get them all up, laughing and involved in the fun!" Hayley Fisher (Feb 2015)


".....a huge "thank you" for all your efforts at Connie's party. She had a fantastic time and all her friends agreed that you were "awesome" with a couple insisting that I speak to their mums so that they can have you at their party.......the fact that we have booked you so many times and still find you so entertaining is testament to your fabulous skill in giving all the kids (and grown ups) a fun filled party." Nikki Hobbs (Jan 2014, after 3 previous parties for Connie)


"January 2012, 30+ 3-6 year-olds, small village hall. The universal view of James and his friends was that "It was the best party ever".Hiring Potty was trouble-free from beginning to end. He made James feel very special and the only concern of the parents was from the children laughing so much."

Mike (Jan 2012)

She loved everything......the parents were saying great things - what a wonderful party, best children's entertainer I've ever seen, , absoloutely fantasic party, isn't he GOOD!

Fleur and Roger (Jan 2012)


"Thank you SO MUCH! for all your hard work at Nuala's party.

"Just wanted to drop you a line and say a huge thank you for the party you did for Izzy and Arthur.  It was brilliant.  Every child/parent has passed comment on how great it was and how the kids enjoyed it.  There could be a lot more Potty Parties happening in HPP if some of the kids get their way!

 "Thank you for a superb performance at Mia's Birthday Party. Not ever have I seen a group of 4 year olds (My 8 yr old daughter, and parents) so engrossed in the performance and activities for such a period of time. Also I would like to extend extra gratitude to you for entertaining the children whilst the delay in food was sorted out by the restaurant. This didn't go un-noticed by most of the parents at the party.....  All the parents said what a wonderful performer you were, and all were amazed how well you captured the audience. The general consensus was that you are the premier children's performer in the Brighton Area."    Don, Sue and Mia. Brighton


"...this is the second year running that we have booked you and yet again you gave a fantastic performance and kept the children mesmerised by your story. I am amazed at how well you kept them quiet and interested.....Everyone had a great time and I know my three loved you. The adults thought you were great too. Thanks so much again....   Caroline


"..A huge thank you for your show at Kai's party. Even though he was shy he absolutely loved it and has talked about nothing else all day. All the kids had a great time as did most of the adults....."   Terri, Nigel & Kai


"..a big "Thank You" for your wonderful energy and work at Arthur's party! All the kids and more to the point the parents - really enjoyed it!!....Thanks again - you were brilliant."   Sarah


 "...I just wanted to thank you for making Patrick’s Party such a success. I have had lots of enthusiastic feedback from parents of kids who came. One boy went home and told his parents in great detail about every trick you did, and talked about little else for the rest of the day, and the day after, so you obviously made an impression with him. My older kids were there for some of the show and loved it too (and they are teenagers, and hard to impress!)I am still reeling from the £20 note trick, which was very clever. Thanks again, Gill


"Thank you so much for the hard work entertaining our son Alex and his friends - I say "hard" but you made it look you were having as much fun as the kids (and adults). To be entertaining everyone from the moment people arrived until it was time to leave, including songs whilst the kids ate and leading the birthday song was amazing and made for an anxiety-free celebration. Memories of Chico the monkey still make us giggle!"    Steven and Clair Sharpe


"Many, many many thanks for a superb show - you really are a star!!" Angie
