I always had a lifelong dream to be a professional actor. At the age of seven, my first major performance was in a play at Galleywall Primary School in Bermondsey. Since then, I have never looked back! Acting and performing stand-up comedy seemed to be my natural skill, which I exercise regularly at Bacons College in Rotherhithe. This avenue led me onto studding Drama and Art & Design (Degree Level) at St Martins College in Lancaster.
In 2005 I had a moment! I thought about starting my own company in the children’s entertainment industry. “Rabbie Fun” is what I arrived at and I begun to set things into motion. While getting the project off the ground, I was working in sales, promotions and demonstrations. At this time I serendipitously met two lovely ladies who kindly taught me the art of face painting. I immediately bought a kit, got myself a few gigs to practise painting on faces then, improved my talents over the next few years. Balloon Modelling came next after my good friend John Rayment taught me and I developed the entertainment skills further onto magic tricks and then shows.
I was making a living from entertaining children now, and as I left the film industry I was already a reputable, professional Children’s Entertainer. As the years have gone by, I honed my craft and became an actual clown. During the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations in 2012, I was involved in up to 10 EVENTS IN ONE WEEK and that’s when the business really took off!
Things have got EVEN MORE exciting in recent years as I have added new products and services to my range. The most popular of which has been combining talking mascots with my regular entertainment services; primarily Mickey Mouse and Spiderman at first, Minnie followed soon along with many others.
It’s now been 11 years since my first party commission and I have become the leading entertainer in the country, having been hired for over 1,300 parties. I have had the pleasure to have worked with numerous Londoners including celebrities, The Royal Family, and also appearing on nation TV and radio including The Richard & Judy Show, Absolute Radio and CNN News. I also get called into local business and countless nurseries, schools, charities and councils.
This Clown has come far - and why?! It’s because I followed Will Smith’s advice:
