BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT
So did you see Allin on ITV's Britain's Got Talent? If you missed it, maybe you were one of the 450,000 people who then watched the YouTube clip the following day!
Allin used the TV show to feature his quirky and colourful Victorian showman character Professor Strange, available as a family magic stage show, a close up magician or a walkabout juggler, magician and balloon modeller.
The Britain's Got Talent judges Amanda Holden, David Walliams, Aleisha Dixon and Simon Cowell didn't put him through to the finals. However Simon Cowell did say his son would like Professor Strange very much, and Amanda Holden even hired Allin for a private party.
If you've never seen Allin perform as Professor Strange, here's his showreel which of course includes his lively appearance on Britain's Got Talent. Enjoy the video.
LIVELY CLOSE-UP MAGIC
Agents keep asking us for videos of us working. But of course at every booking our minds are very much on entertaining the guests, rather than filming ourselves. However we were recently lucky enough to be able to film Allin performing some of his close up magic sets at Illusions Magic Bar.
So now you get to see a taste of Allin's lively audience-pleasing style as a close-up magician.
Enjoy the video.
Yep, 300. That's what comes of spending two decades working as multi-skilled performers for agents and clients who are always getting weird requests for themed parties and events.
OF course, constantly creating new looks and costumes means that keeping agents and clients updated with everything we do becomes quite a task. So we suggest you just assume that we do "everything" costume and theme wise, and that we can fit our skills to match.
Our major skills are: Allin is a magician, juggler, balloon modeller and charcater actor, while Pamela is a tarot reader, palmist and graphologist for grown up events, and a balloon modeller, facepainter and character actress for the kids.
So that's a lot of ground we cover between us.
Just have a look at our ALL OUR ACTS page to see everything in a handy A-Z listing we know you're going to find useful!
LOST IN SPACE
When an agent asked if we had anything to fit a "Lost in Space" themed party they were over the moon with our crazy alien characters Quixie and Quol, the Space Tourists.
We had a great time mixing with their guests, juggling and balloon modelling for all ages.
We know that "Space" is a pretty hard theme to find entertainers for, so next time you get stumped with this one remember that The Kempthornes have costumes and acts for pretty much every theme going.
Just ask us!
EVERYBODY LOVES ST GEORGE
It's always great to hear comments back from clients. We've just got this lovely feedback from Aylesbury Town Council after Allin performed there as St George for their town centre's Medieval St George's Festival:
"Please could you pass on my sincere thanks to Allin for an amazing job he did with us yesterday. He helped to bring our St George's Celebration to life. He is a very talented performer and one which I would like to use again! He's truly gifted. Thank you."
Ruth Mayhew, Aylesbury Town Council
Aw! Thanks Ruth! See you again at next years festival!
COOKING UP A STORM
We love it when festivals book us to perform in their foodcourt areas. While people are eating is the perfect time for entertainment. Juggling over their heads while they eat their chips or amazing them with magic halfway through a baguette always goes down well.
ANOTHER CELEBRITY BOOKING ON THE LIST
"Britain's Got Talent" judge Amanda Holden has hired Allin to perform as The Mad Hatter at her daughter's 5th birthday party. Her daughter wanted an Alice in Wonderland themed party, so Allin was called and he amazed and amused everybody with his Mad Hatter magic show, turning the day into a Mad Hatter's Tea Party to remember.
Amanda Holden was delighted and told him afterwards "You were absolutely wonderful!"
When a judge on "Britain's Got Talent" who has sat in judgement of more acts and entertainers than about anyone else on the planet tells you that, it's very high praise indeed!"
THE HIPPIE HIPPIE SHAKE
Pamela is always in demand for her tarot reading, palmistry and graphology as they're excitingly different entertainments to have at parties and corporate events, plus they can lend themselves to all manner of themes.
She was recently asked if she could be a 1960's flower power hippie to perform tarot readings at a large Woodstock themed party.
She was as always happy to oblige!
NEW TRICKS ON THE CARDS
There's one thing Allin loves as much as performing, and that's developing and rehearsing new tricks and ideas to perform.
Every now and then he hires a local rehearsal space and works on new ideas for his large scale stage magic shows as Thorn: Sharp Magician or his children's show The Gizmo Magic Show.
He's very happy with his brand new routines where he juggles knives completely blindfold and where he performs sleight of hand card tricks with playing cards almost as big as he is! Now THAT'S a visual bit of magic!
PENCIL THAT DATE
If there's one phrase that we both hear more than any other from agents and clients it's "Please pencil that date!"
OK, we'll do that. But first we've got to get a bigger pencil!
We were recently asked to come up with floral themed costumes for a garden festival booking, so we put together these colourful little numbers.
If you have a garden centre or a gardening or flower festival as a client, you might like to suggest us as your entertainers.
In this suitably floral attire Allin can perform juggling, magic and balloon modelling, while Pamela performs balloon modelling or facepainting.
A LIFE ON THE OCEAN WAVE
There's a lot to be said about the life of an entertainer and one of the great aspects of performing for a living is the great people you get to meet.
Allin works a lot at sea performing his magic shows on various ships. There's a real sense of comerarderie between entertainers on the ships and Allin would like to thank and aknowledge all the great singers, musicians, dancers, jugglers, magicians, entertainment hosts and of course entertainment managers that he gets to work with out on the ocean wave.
Have you seen Allin's magic show as Thorn: Sharp Magician?
If you haven't, here's a quick taster!
