If you wish to promote something whether it be a new store, a service or an event, let Phillippe-Philloppe do their thing and attract a lot of attention for you. People find it very difficult to ignore two 10 foot stilt walkers! If your event needs something eye-catching, then maybe Phillippe-Philloppe dressed as 10 foot clowns and being a tad on the silly side is for you! How about two rather tall victorian gentlemen to greet your guests as they arrive, this kind of thing is a great ice breaker for corporate events, weddings or any other occasion you may be celebrating.
Whilst on stilts Phillippe-Philloppe are jugglers, medieval jesters, wizards, clowns and even cyclists, that's right - cyclists! If your event needs something specific to the occassion then it is very possible that we can make something up for you as a one off as we have done before for other clients.
Stilt Walkers on Bicycles
These bicycles are a great mix & mingle act, bicycles customised to allow them to be ridden on stilts! As we cycle along, we carry various juggling props so we can stop off and perform impromtu juggling shows, magic and general tom foolery. A very large performance area can be covered with the stilts bikes and so they are great for town centres, parades, festivals and fetes etc. Stilts bicycles are certainly not a common sight and make a huge impact and therefore are a great addition to many events.
We are the only act to offer a trio of stilt cyclists
Ground based walkabout entertainment can be provided for events where either stilt walkers are not required, or stiltwalkers are unsuitable for the venue.
A combination of stilt walkers and ground based entertainers can be provided for a little variety. Ground based entertaiment allows us to utilise a vast range of props including juggling balls, clubs, knives, rubber chickens, diabolos, hats and lots, lots more. Short impromtu shows can be performed while providing this type of entertainment.
Can be performed in an assortment of dapper costumes.
Very visual indeed, Phillippe - Philloppe perform a variety of impressive stunts with fire including Fire Eating and Fire Juggling. Although mostly suited to the dark, Fire Juggling is also impressive in the day. Fire jugglers are a great addition to the general ambience of an event and a great way to greet guests arriving outside a venue at the entrance.
Fire Juggling Show
in 2014. A comedy fire juggling show originally created for LegoLand
This 2 man fire juggling family show lasts 20 minutes and is a great combination of daring fire juggling, balancing skills, visual and verbal comedy.
The show is best performed during daylight and towards dusk.
Phillippe - Philloppe hold full publlic liability insurance and undertake their own risk assessements.
juggling is incredibly visual in lower light conditions. Self
illuminated, high tech juggling clubs and balls are skillfully
juggled to create an amazing colourful spectacle. Efective as
direct, interactive juggling entertaiment or background
animation. Glow juggling is well suited and very popular at
evening events during dinner and later on the dancefloor.
Glow juggling is a fabulous alternative to fire juggling where the use of fire is inapropriate.
French characters / Stilt Walkers
CAUTION: VERY SILLY STILT WALKERS!
act was new for Phillippe - Philloppe in 2005 and has gone down
very well indeed. Two nutters, on stilts with questionable French
accents and limited French vocabulary. This can be performed with
or without stilts bicycles. When performing this act with the
bikes we have numerous French related props in the baskets
including: an ipod station playing quality French cafe music for
all to hear, an English/French dictionary (very useful for those
tricky translations!), six onions for juggling and a bottle of
finest French red wine (actually grape juice!). This act is very
silly and although originally created for a French market, it is
suitable for many other events with no French connection at all.
Also performed on smaller comedy clown bicycles...very silly!
Also available on clown bicycles
H.M.J. Ship Shape (Her Majesty's Jugglers)
Phillippe - Philloppe are also known as Ship Shape (Her Majesty's Jugglers).
All of the usual skills are employed in a jaunty, comedy, nautical style. Ship Shape can perform ground based or as stiltwalkers, stilts cyclists or on the incredible micro tandem (only 12 inches above sea level!). Phillipe - Philloppe have performed their nautical entertainment at various events including Festival of the Sea.

Angelic Jugglers / Stilt Walkers
Phillippe - Philloppe perform as two stilt walking angels. A great meet & greet act or general walkabout. These characters use their juggling skills and silly sense of humour to entertain at corporate parties, Christmas lights switch on's and various other types of events. At night and in low light, juggling can be in the form of Phillippe - Philloppes very dazzling and programmable glow clubs and balls. These clubs flash, change colour and look fantastic.
These angelic beings (!) are available all year round.
