Robert Presswood & Scott Presswood:
The Heart and Soul of Bumbling Bert's Magic
Welcome to the enchanting world of Bumbling Bert, where every celebration becomes an extraordinary adventure of magic and joy. Whether it’s me, Robert, or my son Scott, bringing to life the character of Bumbling Bert, our performances are gateways to a world filled with wonder, laughter, and lifelong memories, perfect for audiences of all ages.
Since launching my magic career in 1988, my commitment to creating spellbinding experiences for families has been at the heart of everything I do. Residing in Mississauga, Ontario, and inspired daily by my children, I've embraced the role of a magician not just as a profession, but as a calling to spread joy and wonder. Scott, who joined me in this enchanting venture 13 years ago, has been pivotal in expanding our reach, captivating audiences in over 600 events annually.
But the magic doesn’t end there. As Professor Jamz, we ignite excitement with interactive DJ events for schools, transforming routine school functions into thrilling music and dance experiences. Discover more about these high-energy events at www.professorjamz.com.

Are there two Bumbling Berts?Yes! We are a proud family run, small business. Bumbling Bert Senior Robert (Dad) has been entertaining for almost 30 years. Bumbling Bert Junior Scott (Son) is a vibrant and energetic performer who performs hundreds of shows annually. We book Bumbling Bert, Robert or Scott, but WE ARE NOT AN AGENCY and do not send out other entertainers. This is a fact we are very proud of and quite rare in our industry. If you are considering other options for your party, be sure to confirm who your entertainer will be in advance! If you're choosing Bumbling Bert, you'll be guaranteed top quality entertainment for your family. If you have a preference to book Bumbling Bert Junior or Senior, just mention at the time of booking. Most of our clients will choose either one interchangably based on our availability. Emily (Daughter) and Ben (Son) are buzzing around Ontario bringing the best in Dance Party fun!! One thing is certain, no matter which of us is at your event, you will be entertained beyond your wildest expectations!
My child is shy, and might not want to be the center of attention"We perform for kids. It is our joy to bring smiles to the faces of each child at your party! It is our unsurpassed professionalism and expertise that makes ALL of the kids feel celebrated, safe, comfortable, and entertained at the show. WE WANT THEM TO LOVE MAGIC!!! Each show that we perform is unique and each audience is different. After thousands of shows, we have learned to read kids, meet them where they are, create a joyous and inclusive atmosphere, and bring on the belly laughs!!
We have kids under 4 years old. Is that too young to enjoy the show?Our shows are generally geared towards ages 4 and up. That being said, we perform for hundreds of family parties, corporate events, libraries, day cares, 1st, 2nd, 3rd birthday parties... At these celebrations we're there to entertain everyone! Laughter and togetherness is for everyone! Please take tons of pictures and video to capture the magic!
How long do you need to set up before the show?Zero minutes! My show starts with meeting the kids right at the door! (Don't fret! This time is not included as the performance). Introductions are important, and spending time and visiting with the kids before the show is essential in forming a connection to make your performance memorable and fantastic! Once we've arrived, the fun has begun!!! Believe us, you'll be so glad - it's surprisingly hard to hold back an excited audience to wait patiently out of the room!
What is your cancellation policy?Since I would be turning away other potential bookings when you reserve your date/time, cancellations for any reason will forfeit the deposit. However, in the event of an emergency, you may re-schedule the show without any penalty and the deposit will be applied to the new booking (up to 60 days). Rescheduling is based upon my availability.
