About Clowning Around

Welcome to Clowning Around, the best entertainment in DFW!


Dallas Entertainment Agency

Here at Clowning Around we love what we do. Our favorite part is seeing all the smiles from the guests at the event! We are seen at many DFW events and offer a variety of entertainment including face painters, airbrush, balloon twisters, stilt walkers, jugglers and much more!

Tami Rachel

Owner, CEO, aka The Boss

In 1984 Tami started Clowning Around with one clown, Penelope, a helium tank and balloons. She found her career taking off because of her love for children and desire to be in business for herself.
Over the years Clowning Around has evolved into a multi-faceted company providing entertainment for a wide variety of events. Clowning Around offers services for city events, corporate events, schools, churches, festivals, fairs and more.

David Briggs

Managing Partner, aka NOT The Boss

In 1993, David (Bender) Briggs took a library book and a desire to work for himself, and started making balloon animals. With fast hands and an arsenal of really bad jokes, David became Bender the balloon artist. After working with Clowning Around, David also became Bender the juggler, stilt walker, and poi artist. By combining their different strengths, David and Tami team up to make Clowning Around what it is today.
