We are husband and wife duo Chris and Debbie Kelly. We met in 1981 before Chris graduated from the University of Newcastle, and were married in California in January 1983 whilst Chris was studying at the Dell Arte School of Mime, Comedy and Physical Performance. We have continued to work together since that time with Chris believing that he has taught me everything I know, and I do have to agree…well almost! The troupe has grown over these years with the addition of three well-adjusted children, all now adults, Gene, Georgia and Sam to our credit.
Our longest ongoing associations are with Hunter Water (since 1990) NBN Television (since 1995), Energy Australia (since 1982), Humour Foundation as Clown Doctors (since 2002) and in years past, Newcastle Knights (1994) as ‘Rusty’ & then ‘Jester’ mascots for 20 years and The Falcons NBL basketball team (1990,s) ‘Fat Elvis’ mascot who still survives today!!
Children’s parties…we’ve performed at a few! Try thousands over our 39-year history. In fact, we relish every chance to perform anywhere, anytime for anyone!
We have a regular corporate function and Christmas party client base.
We continue to tour our award winning ‘Bubbles & Supa Squirt Water Saving Show’ to schools throughout the Hunter Region and beyond.
We also have other ‘Eco’ shows on offer to preschool, schools, councils, festivals, Libraries and the like promoting the use less waste, less themes along with education on 2, 3 and more council bin systems. View our ‘Schools tab for further information about these inter-active shows that make learning fun and engaging.
