Profile of Mark the Balloon Guy
Hello,

Just wanted to intro myself. I am a recovering Alt.magic user and a full time family entertainer. I work 8 engagements per week in Tampa Bay Area restaurants and do many private and corporate parties.

I am known best as Mark the Balloon Guy and have a website called: Balloonguy. I am most famous as the guy in MAGIC magazine with the Balloon Harley, and as the creator of a unique sponge star routine called "Twinkle ...twinkle"

Steve Hart and Doc Eason turned me on to the activities here. I am quite active with the Tampa Bay Magic Club as I am the Programs Coordinator.

Look forward to batting around the Magical Shuttlecock of ideas.

Welcome Balloon Man.

That is the greatest balloon motorcycle that I have ever seen...

I'm new myself, but this looks like the place to be.

I do very little sponge work, but would like to learn more about your effect.

Hello Balloon Guy!

It is a privilege to have company such as you join us here!

alt.magic is nothing, compared to this place.

Welcome! You have come to the number 1 magic site, but then we on the staff are prejudiced. When you get a chance drop by the mentalists' table and pull up a chair. It is the table in the corner by the window under the sign that says A Penny for Your Thoughts, but I sensed you knew that. Smile

Thank you all for your warm welcomes and the accolades on the Harley.

About the sponge stars routine since you asked. It is a six phase routine with patter that actually makes sense for the props. You can view the performance only on my website.

http://www.balloonguy.net

Of course it can be ordered there through pay-pal too. Stars are $20 for 10 special made goshman super, super soft extra thick neon yellow stars. The video is $20 also OR you can get the stars & the video for $35 + $5 S&H.

As far as balloon magic, what I do with the balloons looks more magical to people than any trick. Jim Sisti had a great Talk about magic where he discussed the allure of balloons verses a magical performance.

About the only balloon magic trick I do is Jeff McBride's/Max Maven inflation. It is a method of pulling balloon bubbles off of a 260 balloon. I do mine to music with a creation of a flower at the end.

Hello Smile Balloony,
How nice to see a balloon man here. Smile
I sometimes do Balloon Animals for the kid shows, and as far as I know, I am the only magic entertainer in Turkey, who does balloon animals. Smile Nevertheless, I have to confess, that, I am not so rich in figures. So I am very glad that I see somebody who is an expert on the subject. May I sometimes bother you by asking for some new figures? Smile
Welcome to the Cafe and enjoy your cup of pure cafeine.
Smile Smile Smile Smile
Magically Yours,
