Program History:

Peter John has been performing for audiences for 26 years. Starting as a fire eater and escape artist trying to entertain older audiences. By performing these shows he learned how to gain and hold the audience's attention. After a year of limited venues, he started specializing in magic and adding balloons to his show. Slowly the show became more family friendly and children centered with both magic and balloons. The audience loved the balloon portions and pushed for more and larger balloon creations, until the show was almost all balloons. Peter John has won numerous awards, including second place in the large category an international balloon competition.
