Absolutely outstanding! Such a professional and great with our audience young and old! Jonathon was able to adapt amazingly. Originally booked to walk around doing magic tricks and balloon making he was a true professional in realizing that the way the audience was set up (due to unpredictable weather) that the audience would sit and watch what turned out to be an hour long show! We couldn’t recommend enough and will always be on the forefront of our minds next time we would like to book future entertainment. Five-star rating for a five-star gentleman. Thank you! More...

Jonathan was just so great with the kids! From his clear and proactive written communication pre event to his actual show I am left really satisfied and delighted. Jonathan kept all 8 x 5year old engaged and amused for an hour. He s funny and kind and the kids (and adults!) enjoyed the tricks and jokes. Jonathan was also so generous with the balloon animals, offering extras to kids and making sure no one was /felt left out. I would highly recommend Jonathan. More...

We thoroughly enjoyed his show. I hired him for my grandson' s 11th birthday in October who was having to self isolate. Jonathan my grandson really enjoyed watching him do his magic tricks. He interacted with Jonathan and he even showed him a few tricks.
I would recommend Jonathan Cann especially if your child is interested in magic tricks.

We booked Jonathan for our sons 5th birthday party for October just after I booked the new 6 people restriction where coming in the following week so Jonathan rearranged the date for us at such short notice & managed to fit us in between other party’s so that our son could still have his friends at his party! All covid secure!
He was amazing the kids loved him & the adults loved his jokes to!
I would highly recommend Jonathan & would definitely book him again in the future!
Thanks Jonathan! Xx

10/10 experience I couldn't recommend Jonathan highly enough. I did a google search and found him on the Bark Website. From the moment of first messaging he was quick & professional to respond. All booked for 4 weeks time then the government announced the new laws where only 6 people can meet from the 14th Sept, massive spanner in the works, I messaged late on the Thursday to ask to reschedule to the Sunday 13th in only 3 days time and without any problems he saved my 6 year olds party. He had the best day. Jonathan arrived early & messaged to say his waiting outside until his sceduled arrive. He set up. Got to know the children. Delivered the best party with games, prizes, dancing, break for party tea which he perfectly got them to their places around a table. Then the next 1 hour magic show & balloon making. I wouldn't have thought it possible 3-6 year olds to sit & watch & laugh their socks off so hard for so long. He was just brilliant and I would have him again for sure. Many Thanks Jonathan, its great to recommend brilliant people. All the adults also had a hoot & we still cant fathom the tricks really impressive. Thank you for a great day More...

Jonathan is clearly very experienced as he was able to keep 15 x 5/6 year olds entertained for the full hour with no problem at all. The kids found him hilarious...and so did the adults! More...

We started out wanting to find someone who could perform Punch and Judy for our son’s 5th birthday party and discovered Jonathan and that he provided a full package of a two hour birthday celebration. From the moment the children arrived he engaged with them all and started telling jokes, even one or two for the parents who stayed. Once everyone had arrived Jonathan got the children playing a few party games, such as Musical bumps and Statues rolled into one, and after all the games were played each child was given a choice of prize had they been the winner or not. We then had a little break for food, while Jonanthan set up for some magic tricks and the Punch and Judy show. The magic tricks were very clever, often giving the Children the belief that they had the solution only to be proven wrong and leaving them with open mouths plus many “wows”. The Punch and Judy show was brilliant. Having seen a few recently it was so good that Jonathan added a moral to the tale, which essentially is not the most PC story, meaning that the children understood that violence is not a good solution. The children were totally captivated throughout the whole of the party and from the comments I’ve had from Mum’s they all thought it was brilliant fun.

I would thoroughly recommend Jonathan as an entertainer and should I need a Punch and Judy again in the future he would be my first port of call

Balloon Twisters & Entertainers

First time we have used Jonathan for a party event, the guests consisted of adults, teenagers, young children aged five plus and disabled adults.
Everyone enjoyed the show, the children loved the balloons and the magic tricks, the Punch and Judy show had all the adults laughing and all the children watched in amazement!
Our disabled friends were either amazed or ignored him completely but to be honest they ignore everyone.
All in all, a great time was had by all.

What a fantastic showman!!! I booked Jonathan for my daughter's 5th birthday party after checking him out on Bark and reading his reviews and what can I say! He was punctual, professional and excellent with not just the children but the parents too. I had around 20 children attend the party and for the entire two hours Jonathan kept everyone entertained. The children hung on his every word (and so did the parents). He is very funny, clever with the magic show with a few gags that even the "grown ups" could enjoy. I have never seen 20+ children so enthralled from start to finish. His professionalism shone through the entire party and he certainly knows how to keep the children and adults in check. I would thoroughly recommend anyone wishing to throw a children's party to look no further than Jonathan Cann. Thank you so much for creating a special memory my family will never forget. oh just to close, Jonathan is quick to reply to correspondence and flexible enough to tailor his performances to suit. Prices are very reasonable and genuinely a wonderful entertainer. More...

With a few jokes and tricks for the parents too, Jonathan made it a really happy day for us all.

Jonathan was brilliant at my daughter’s recent 5th birthday party. He kept the children’s attention fully for an hour with his magic and humour. They loved it!

A real value add was the way Jonathan sheparded the children into the kitchen for the birthday tea - he didn’t just disappear once the hour was up. Would highly recommend. More...
