One source for giant (5 and seven foot) latex balloons is:
http://www.balloonstomorrow.com/giantbaloons.htm

These may not be suitable but if you give them a call they can probably find what you need.

I remember seeing what I think your talking about a long time ago. I did a quick search and couldn't find anything except this performer who uses it in his act according to his website. Mabye you could contact him.

Perhaps you are talking about Fred Garbo "the inflatable theater" at http://www.fredgarbo.com, or John Cassidy the Ginnis Book world record balloon blower at http://www.johncassidy.com, but I'm sure both of them will be very tight lipped about their props, because many have tried to immitate both of them.

You may want to take a jaunt over to see "The Balloon Guy"
Mr. Skip Banks do his routine at http://www.skipbanks.com

He's been doing this bit for years, and we have worked together many times!

This guy is the best, I have seen: http://www.mrballoonman.com/home.html
Check out the video clip: http://www.mrballoonman.com/video.html

I just can't believe that there are balloons that people can stay inside, he even lit a cigarette while inside the balloon.

You might also check with Brad Matchett at http://www.magicva.com. Brad does a bit for kids where he gets trapped inside a balloon and fights his way out with a balloon dog in his hand.

Kaboom Balloons has them at a good price. Service is good, too. http://www.kaboomballoons.com/StoreFront.bok Look for "climb inside" balloons.

I have tried the Sri Lanka balloons from Kaboom. I did not like them. There were small holes and imperfections in the side wall of the balloons. Yes, I was able to get inside but the balloon easily burst . The balloons from Italy were better. The service from Kaboom was good. The balloons I like to use are from Balloondealer.com. The lip of the balloon is much, much stronger so you might want to consider triming it off. Also these balloons are more less translucent, which I like for what I do.

I'm assuming that these guys must haul around an air compressor to blow these things up(?)

The skipbanks site includes a funny clip in which a muggle tries the "balloon challenge". The balloon ends up deflating with him inside, trapping him in a sort of fetal position. Might make a funny bit to end a routine with!

I have seen Hillel Gitter perform at the Castle and I thought he was fantastic. Great performance.
