Important Information


How many ballons do each child or guest receive?

 At least one! If time & supplies allow, I can make more — but not until everyone has their first one!


Do you charge per child or guest?

 Nope! My rates are hourly (pro tip: parties of 35+ guests should book additional time).


What's the minimum time I can hire you?

 An hour and a half; 90 minutes. Parties of 100+, the minimum is three hours (enlisting my wife’s talents for parties of this size is highly recommended). 


Do you offer face painting?

Yes! Book my lovely wife for airbrush face painting and temporary tattoos. She only uses FDA-approved face paints. 


What's your cancellation policy?

 Any cancellations sooner than two weeks before an event will forfeit half of their fee. Cancellations two or more weeks before an event incur no penalty.

 Cash, check, or card. Deposits are at Tuxedo Jimmy’s discretion.


Are you insured?

Review for Metropolitan Productions
Tuxedo Jimmy is a Festival Favorite!

We use Tuxedo Jimmy and Apron Annie for our large Oregon Convention Center festivals, as well as smaller events that include families. Tuxedo Jimmy and Apron Annie are always one of our more popular booths and never fail to leave the kids at our events smiling from ear-to-ear! If you have an event, and need to bring in professional, talented, friendly entertainers, you would do well to hire Tuxedo Jimmy and Apron Annie!

I’m Jimmy, Portland’s local Balloon Twister.

I’m Tuxedo Jimmy, Portland’s local Balloon Twister! I sculpt balloons, juggle, perform magic, and tell jokes on my unicycle. Portland, Beaverton, Tigard, Gresham, Hillsboro, and Vancouver, WA: If you haven’t met me yet, schedule me for your next party today! The people have spoken: I’m “a complete hit,” “amazing,” and make “the best child’s party . . . ever.”

What I do on my spare time…

I live in my hometown, Portland, OR, with my wife, business manager, and creative partner, Chandra. When not attending industry conventions and seminars, I am in school, studying American Sign Language (ASL), and theater and stage craft.
