Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What towns do you travel to?
A. In general, I travel anywhere in New Haven and Hartford counties, as well as parts of Fairfield county and Springfield, MA. I'm often traveling to places like Bristol, CT, Milford, CT, West Hartford, CT, Manchester, CT, West Haven, CT, and Stratford, CT, just to name a few.
Q. Do you dress as a clown?
A. No, clowning is a different and distinct performance art. Clowns often use simple balloon animals and magic to add to their performance, but that is very different from what I do.
Q. How early do I have to book in advance?
As soon as possible. I book on a first come first serve basis and there is only one of me. Once you know you want Matt The Balloon Man at your party, it's best to call right away!
Q. How much space do you need?
A. Very little! For balloon twisting I only need a corner of a room. For magic shows, I need just a little more space so that there is somewhere for the children to sit and watch.
For balloon twisting at fairs and festivals I always recommend that promoters put me in a place that handle a long line of children. Balloon twisting is popular, and my line gets long at these events; I did a school carnival in Meriden, CT recently and had a 30 minute line all night. When I did the Durham Fair my line was closer to an hour! With this in mind, it's best not to put me near the food, the bathrooms or any other high traffic area.
Q. What payments do you accept?
Just about all of them! Cash, check, money order, as well as credit cards and PayPal!
