Bert JR brought so much energy to our daughters 6th Bday party.
Everyone enjoyed the show aged 4+ all the way to 75+
Bert was punctual, great with the kids and has a great sense of humour enjoyed by all.
Tina Kalogeropoulos, November 20, 2021
Bert's performance made my son's party so special and so much fun! Really amazing magic tricks and so funny on top of that. A great performance that entertained kids 4-9 (as well as the parents!). Highly recommend!

We had Bumbling Bert (Scott) at my Daughters birthday party a few weeks ago. I have to say that Scott was amazing, funny and the kids loved him. Highly recommend
November 7, 2021
Speechless to say the least! Such an amazing experience, not just for the kids, but every single adult too! Everyone laughed. Worth every single penny!!! Can’t wait to hire him again!

We had bumbling bert entertained at my niece's birthday 5 years ago and she loved it. Recently felt safe enough with covid and held a small backyard outdoor birthday party for my 4 years old. This was a younger bumbling bert. He was fantastic as well. The kids and parents all loved the show. It is also great that bumbling bert was fully vaccinated. My daughter woke up this morning and said the magician was soooo funny. He also twisted balloons for the kids. Very well priced. Highly recommend Bumbing Bert. For sure would recommend adding the balloons.
Kim Tran, October 23, 2021
My daughter and her friends loved Scott's hilarious magic show for her birthday party! (And so did the grown-ups!) I highly recommend this as entertainment for 7 year olds!
Allison Riva, October 23, 2021

Igor Ivanov, October 10, 2021
Amazing show and magician! It was the best of the birthday party: 4-5 years old kids giggling and mesmerized and the parents happy and entertained also. We had a great time! Thanks Bert!
Adina Radulescu. September 24, 2021
My kids loved the show, they could not stop laughing.
Peter Kuretzky, September 19, 2021
I would recommend Bumbling Bert for kids and even adult entertainment. He was beyond my expectations. He was very friendly and hilarious. The kids and adults had an awesome time as well. He was very punctual, interacted well with everyone, even when my son was asking questions over and over he was very friendly, patient and answered all questions. Overall had an amazing experience and definitely would love to have him again.

We hired him for a 9 year old's birthday and he was truly amazing!! The way he lit a smile on every kid's birthday was amazing! Thank you for the magic act and the foam party and everything! Truly great job! I would not doubt to recommend Bert or to hire him again!
Veronica Galvis, September 3, 2021

Lamis, August 20, 2021
We hired Bert for our kids sixth birthday and he entertained everyone at the party. Even the adults were into it. He has a great personality. So fun.
Stephanie Sabourin, July 24, 2021
We had Bumbling Bert perform at our 9 year old son's birthday party. Bert answered all our questions ahead of time, was flexible with dates and when he arrived, he dived right in. He fully engaged with the children in a wonderful manner-they were equally amazed, excited and just so happy to watch him. We felt he went above and beyond, showing them how the tricks in their party bags worked and being so interactive with them. The parents found him as great as the children did - I honestly can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you Bert!
Catherine Screen, July 18, 2021
It was best show ever and ever!! so much fun!!
Mi Kyeong Kim
Bumbling Bert did not disappoint! The children were entertained and laughed non stop. Would definitely recommend Bert again :)
Trisha Kennedy, July 10, 2021
Our end of school year party was made "perfect" because of Bumbling Bert's performance... he had the children's rapt attention and was entertaining to both kids and adults... we all laughed throughout Bert's performance and were left wondering "How did he do that!!!"... we highly recommend Robert Presswood (Bert) for your event!
Pat Roszell, July 3, 2021
The kids loved it and laughed their heads off! It was so great to see them like that-made my day! Bert did an amazing job and is frickin hilarious! 5 stars from me!! Thank you for making my sons birthday awesome
Shannon McSkimming, June 25, 2021
Bert was just perfect-easy to communicate with, on time, personable, and he provided the most fun party we've ever had. Will definitely be hiring him again!
E Mills, June 23, 2021
The show was very funny and kept the kids entertained for the entire 45 minutes. Would definitely book again and recommend for anyone looking for an entertainer.
Genevieve, June 12, 2021
I can't possibly give any more stars to Bumbling Bert. He had the kids on the edge of their seats the entire show. They were in hysterics. The performance was very interactive and the kids were constantly engaged. I highly, highly recommend him!
Chris Groulx, April 17, 2021
Charming and Engaging - Bert was absolutely amazing ... he is SO talented and personable. He was able to engage even the youngest child in the clan... being only 10 months old. Age range of grandchildren were from
10months to 8 years ... 6 of them. If I had not seen it with my own eyes I would not have believed it was possible. The grands kids aged 4-8 really had a blast! Those dance moves by Burt were “cool” as the kids told us later.
Thank you Burt for really giving our Christmas Party a new and special memory!
Nana B & Grandpa Ray
Birthday girl was thrilled. Kids were amazed!! Bumbling Bert made our girl's party. Superiorly professional interaction before the party, very responsive. On the day of the party, Scott was on time. The kids were immediately captivated and remained captivated for the duration of the show. The entire room, from the four-year-olds, through their older siblings, and the adults, were laughing and enjoying every minute. Our girl kept talking about her magical experience for days. As the parents organizing the party, we appreciated working with such reliable professionals. Highly recommended. Before the party ended, we were asked by other parents for Bumbling Bert's contact details.
Dan D - December 11th 2019
Wonderful Christmas Party Magic show...the children ranged in ages from 3 yrs to 9 years and everyone had a fabulous time - smiles of pure joy and the laughing and dancing about!
Daniele Spethmann - Orix GeoScience- December 6th 2019
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!
Shari F - December 4th 2019
Thanks for another great year at Northstar’s Costume Ball. You are wonderful to work with and we truly appreciate your patience!
Savia - Northstar - October 26th 2019
For any age, Bumbling Bert will entertain your entire family and friends. He engages everyone with an amazing magical show and then a fun, DJ dance party. Everyone enjoyed it immensely! Thank you!
Paula P - October 26th 2019
Our DJ was amazing, was very polite, interacted well with our kids, play appropriate music for each crowd ! The kids had a blast!!
Laurie Hawkins School - Ingersoll - October 23rd 2019
We had a wonderful event. We raised more than double from our previous years!!!
Our Lady of Lourdes - Elmvale - October 22nd 2019
Very funny. Kids loved it.
Neesha Sandhar - October 19th 2019
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
Simon Gagne - August 14th 2019
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.
Carly B - July 13th - Micro Bubble Foam Party
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.
Sonal Gandhi - June 23rd 2019
We want to thank you again for appearing at Kendall’s and Kameron’s birthday party on Sunday. Everyone has been raving about your performance, both the adults and children had amazing time. Great great entertainment – it really made the party, highly recommended. we hope to see you next year, everyone kept asking where we found you. Many thanks once again. Brilliant!
Charlene N - Birthday Mom - June 23rd, 2019

Rubi Pourawal - ISSP/ESL/Guidance Teacher - Mountain Ash Public School - June 13th 2019
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!
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.
Leah Pantich - Life Enrichment manager, Verve Senior Living - April 24th 2019
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
We hired bumbling bert for our daughters 6th birthday party. He was extremely entertaining for all. He was the highlight of her party. Also extremely professional and responsive throughout the whole booking process. Huge thanks!
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!
