Performing for 30 years (not counting his 8th grade talent contest in which he won 2nd place, blowing the audience away), Dave has gone from novice clown to full-time business owner, speaker, and notorious comedy performer. Some say he’s genius, others say he’s just sick. Dave’s motto: “If you can’t have fun, you might as well stay at home.”
Dave (aka The Almost Amazing Rex/Rex The Wonder Clown) has entertained audiences small & large for companies such as Lowes Home Improvement Warehouse, Lennox China, 98 Lumber, RJ Reynolds, AT&T, Wal-Mart, etc. From intimate parties to company picnics to Grand Openings & banquet shows, Dave is in demand.
A long time member of the Berkeley Civitan Clowns, Dave donates countless hours both to entertain & raise money for the mentally & developmentally disabled. He is instrumental in keeping fellow clowns abreast of the latest news in the clowning industry.
His business, Balloons & Clowns, began 15 years ago as a small store front business specializing in balloon deliveries & birthday parties; it now comprises a retail balloon shop, gift store, and entertainment agency which keeps 6 to 8 local performers busy year round. The mail order division provides entertainers world wide with balloons, magic, & clown supplies.
In addition to entertaining, Dave also shares his experience through teaching. Dave is a featured speaker at magic and clown conventions across the US & Canada. A member of the Fellowship of Christian Magicians, Clowns of America Intl., & World Clown Association, he has presented at national and regional events.
With 2 presentations on video ( “Magic on the Move” & “How to Make $1,000 a Day“) and a book (“Nice Work… Now You Can Get It“) to his credit, Dave works to maintain high standards in the performance arts.
