BUMBLING BERT SR.: The Man Behind the Magic

Do you love the thrill and wonder of magic?  I always have.  I got my start as a socially awkward kid who was enthralled with magic.  I would save every penny to head to the Magic Store and buy great tricks to add to my collection.  I loved performing for family and friends!

As I got older, that wonder and thrill never left me.  You could say I was a magic-obsessed kid who didn't change much... just got bigger.  I still love performing as much today as I did then! I've owned my own entertainment company since 1988 and one thing remains the same: my commitment to bringing smiles and laughter to the faces of family and friends... but now they are YOUR family and friends.

I live in beautiful Burlington, Ontario and have four fantastic children. They think I have the best job in the world... and do you know what? So do I! 

Seven years ago, to no one's surprise who knew him, my son Scott expressed a passion and interest to follow in my footsteps.  These days, Scott and I book over 600 events a year,  to rave reviews! We had a super awesome summer with our Foam parties this past summer. Each time we are invited to be a part of someone's celebration,  we feel honoured. Our programs are as silly and hilarious as a clown, but presented in a Magician’s attire. We have more rave reviews than any other entertainers because we’re GREAT at making kids and adults giggle!!!  Invite Bumbling Bert, (Junior, Senior or Emily!) to your next party... and you'll never want another party without us!

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 face 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!




Are there two Bumbling Berts?


Yes! We are proud family run, small business. Bumbling Bert Senior (Dad) Robert, who 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. Bumbling Beatrice Emily (Daughter) is 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!




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.




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!
