Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)


Q: How far in advance do I need to book an event?

A:  I have clients who book shows a year in advance; I also have clients who call the same day as the event. Although you might be able to book Johie the Clown on short notice, it’s best to book your event as early as possible, especially if your event falls between the prime time of 11 am to 5 pm during the weekends as those slots fill up quickly. Please call Johie as early as possible to book your event.
