We perform over 400 shows per year to rave reviews!  Our program is as silly and hilarious as a clown, but presented in a Magician’s attire.  We were featured on The Nature of Things on CBC.
 

We have more rave reviews than any other entertainer because we’re GREAT at making kids and adults giggle!!!

 

Our programs are fantastic for a wide variety of ages and your adult guests will have as much fun as the children.  Invite Bumbling Bert to your next party... and you'll never want another party without him!

Bumbling Bert performed at our Intergenerational Christmas Party and was amazing! He really knows how to entertain both children and adults! He captures a crowd with his quick wit, humour and talent! One of the best entertainers we've had at our Centre in a long time! Thank you Bumbling Bert!

It was well organized and the students really enjoyed themselves.

Parnall School- St Catharines - October 17th 2019 

We booking Bumbling Burt for a corporate event and Scott exceeded our expectations. We had an audience of about 150 people varying in age from babies to adults and the feedback from staff was extremely positive. Scott was phenomenal; he captured the attention of both the kids and adults and kept the audience engaged and very entertained throughout the whole show. It can be tricky finding a performer who can connect with such a diverse crowd but Scott clearly has a talent for what he does and he exceeded all expectations.

Laura Dantsis - August 22nd 2019

Simply amazing show, great props given to all the children after the show

I cannot say how absolutely impressed I (and everyone) was with @presswoodentertainment.
Presswood entertained a FoamParty in our backyard for my son's 12th birthday celebration and boy was it a P A R T AAAAAAAAA Y.
Emily (of Presswood) single-handedly, managed the whole show. Her music Playlist provided the perfect backdrop to the surreal foam cloud that filled our entire backyard while the kids laughed and howled endlessly while playing in it - PURE JOY!
Thank you too of course to Mr. Presswood - aka Robert for arranging this so efficiently and professionally. Robert made the organization, booking, and payment a dream.
It goes without saying, I would HIGHLY recommend @Presswoodentertainment for parties of all ages.
Thank you again. I feel so lucky to have had such an amazing experience for my son's Birthday!
This one will be talked about for weeks and will be remembered FOREVER.

Bert was a hit! He had every child laughing and all of the parents, too! We highly recommend.

Henry Baird - Birthday Dad - July 13th 2019

 

We have booked Bumbling Bert twice now, for both of my sons' first birthdays. We have been lucky enough to have first Bert himself, and more recently, Professor Jamz. Both times the experience was FANTASTIC! The kids were so engaged, even crying because they did not want it to end. The parents were also having a blast. By far one of the best children's entertainers. The energy, creativity, mix of mediums, and professionalism is first class. Everyone, including the venue staff, asked me who the amazing entertainer was. I highly suggest booking the 90 minute all inclusive show. We had kids from age 1 to 12 enthralled. Made the party. Worth every penny. Thanks again Presswood Entertainment. Keep it up.

So amazing! Made my daughter’s 5th Birthday! Made her feel so special. His material is age appropriate and he even adds in some humor for the adults! Best thing you could do for your kids birthday party! Definitely recommend!
Chantelle Welsh - Birthday Mom - June 9th 2019

I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank you to you and your company for doing such a great job at our Spring Fling event, The kids had a blast! The bubble machine was quit popular and everyone enjoyed the music and dance competition. Please pass on our gratitude to Bumbling Beatrice for her excellent service.  We had many compliments on our Spring Fling and how much fun everyone had. We could not have been so successful without the entertainment that was provided for us. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

St Gabriel Catholic Elementary School's School Event - Burlington - June 6th 209

Second time using Bert and it was just as awesome as the first. We had over 40 six and seven year olds and Bert had them engages for the full 90 minutes he was there.

Nick Ikonomakis - Birthday dad - May 26th 2019

Just hosted my son's 6th birthday party. The kids were entertained for the whole 90 min. I dont know how (magic!), but every single kid had a BLAST. Highly recommend Bumbling Bert. Worth every single penny. Pure fun. Thank you, Bumbling Bert!!!!

Ana Jung - Birthday Mom - March 25th 2019

 

I hired Bumbling Bert for my daughters 4th birthday party simply based on reviews and really liked the ultimate party package that was offered. I have to say that I was kind of skeptical because I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect and how truly engaging he would be for such a mixed crowd. HE WAS AN ABSOLUTE HIT!!! My daughter and her friends were laughing continuously!! She was highlighted as the birthday girl and was involved in a large portion of the show! The adults were having a blast too! I could hear laughter all around the room and was asked several times “where did you find this guy?! He’s amazing!” We had “little Bert” as it is run by father and son and he knew EXACTLY all the right things to do and say to get a crowd of 18 kids, ages 2-9, laughing, dancing, playing and interacting! The favours (glow in the dark sunglasses and rings) were a ton of fun! The balloons were fantastic! 90 minutes was perfect and the variety of entertainment was great! My daughter talked about “Bert” for days to follow and although it’s been weeks, asks to watch videos and STILL laughs while watching! I would definitely recommend!

Bianca Samanis - Birthday Mom - May 23rd 2019

 
Fantastic show and kept the kids so well entertained. So easy to deal with and very responsive. Excellent communication. 100% recommend.

Sue Neely Burke - Birthday Mom - May 5th 2019

Thank you so much for coming into Credit River – the residents don’t laugh like that at just anything! We really appreciated how you brightened their day.

Our daughter loved it. What else can you ask for?
We had BB for a birthday party for a 4-year old (children attending ranged from 3 to 7 years). He was great. His superpower isn't his magic (which is entertaining for kids but not mind-blowing), it's his ability to deal with kids. The kids loved basically everything he did. He doesn't pander to them, but he knows what they are going to like and he kept them occupied for the whole time. We've had paid entertainers for our daughter's 2nd, 3rd, and now 4th birthdays, and BB was by far the best. Kudos to Bumbling Bert.

Shaun Doody - March 4th, 2019

Bert was amazing. He arrived on time and from the moment he arrived he had captured the attention of the kids. i was worried an hour may be long but they all loved it. Was great!! I also got the loot bags as an add on and was worried they would be very cheap and generic but was pleased that it was not your typical items. Overall very impressed - would recommend and use again!

Jodie Hamilton - March 3rd 2019

 

Bumbling Bert was amazing! We had twenty something 5 year old's, all hyper boys, except for 2 girls, who were so excited by his tricks and jokes that they were swarming Bert every few minutes or so, but he always managed them perfectly without appearing flustered at all! The children loved the show and many parents came up to us after to ask where we found such a good entertainer! He even demonstrated the magic kit to the children and they were all playing the with the kit right after. Balloon twisting was also great and he made sure there was enough time for both the magic and the balloon twisting. Very professional communication throughout. Thank you, Bert!

Ayesha Zhong - February 17th 2019

Community Dance plus MAGIC show!!! Can I give 6 stars?!?! We had Robert DJ our annual family valentines dance! Over 120 kids and their parents enjoyed an evening filled with music, dancing and we also added on the magic show option! It was a wonderful community event and we raised lots
Of money for our community daycare. Robert was profession, polite, fair priced, well equipped, knowledge and most important FUN! Thanks Robert... can’t wait to have you back next year.

Tracy Saunders - February 8th, 2019

Omg I can’t say enough! The BEST investment for your party! We had Scott (Bert’s son) yesterday at our birthday celebration and everyone is still talking about the AMAZING magic show! Scott was able to make all kids and adults laugh for a whole hour. It was a truly MAGICAL EXPERIENCE!

Jane Perelstien - February 3rd 2019

JEN COSTELLO - January 19th 2019

 

We were very happy to see how much fun kids had with the magic show and entertainment with Bumbling Bert. Party had Kids between 2y and 9y. Since we booked it everything was very easy and quick communication. He arrived on time and well prepared with music and props for the whole time!!! We love it. I really recommend him!

MARÍA ISABEL RODRÍGUEZ - January 19th 2019

 

Awesome job! Kids were laughing the whole time. I thought the hour show might be too long to hold small kids attention but I did it anyway and it was great, he had their attention the whole time. They loved the dancing. Thanks so much defiantly recommend this guy!

Angela Dempsey - January 12th 2019

 

INCREDIBLE - Thank you so much- you essentially made my son's 5th Birthday incredibly memorable fort BOTH the kids AND Parents. To say I would recommend Bert is the understatement of the year. We will see you next year!
