Pongo will bust a few clown moves at Fest


What happens when a party meets Pongo? Find out at this year's Kids Fest.
Pongo the Clown, who hits the stage at noon, brings years of experience to each occasion and has entertained audiences young and old at birthday parties, corporate events and festivals. His parties are tailored to the age of the children, combining juggling, magic, games, balloon animals and just plain fun at all his appearances.
He has a great sense of timing and he really gets a crowd to laugh.
Pongo the Clown, also known as Paul Mordoff, said, "I always have just as much fun as the kids. It is great to make people laugh. I take my clowning very seriously. I have to be funny or else!" Pongo is a talented performer and works all the time in the Connecticut/New York area at restaurants, catered events, private parties, fund-raisers and fesfivals. Pongo can be reached at 866-0543. Visit him on the Web at http://www.pongotheclown.com.
In addition to his clowning antics, Mr. Mordoff is the owner of PTC Creative Educational Productions, a company which tours assembly programs to elementary schools. His current production of Our World is a Comic adventure, that teaches children about the environment and The world we live in.
Everyone involved with the production, from the author, director and scenic designer to the professional New York actors, have put their talents together to create a show that is both entertaining and educational. They are currently performing at elementary schools in the area.
Even though Our World doesn't involve clowns, it is very funny and combines elements which kids enjoy-fun surprises, quick costume changes, music, magic, juggling and audience participation. PTC Creative Educational Productions can be reached at 866-2878.
