Russ Brown’s puppet show
Russell's interest in magic began as a child when he received a magic set as a gift. His family were forced to 'pick a card', 'watch closely' and 'say the magic word' many, many times but as he got older and started to win awards with his magic, they realised that this wasn't just a passing phase.
As a children's performer, Russ' unique style involving lots of audience participation, loud music and crazy gags has captivated kids (and their parents) from around the globe. He was the resident children's entertainer at the world famous Blackpool Tower for over 10 years before leaving to take up residency in his own venue at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. He is also about to begin his eleventh year as the children's entertainer at Pontins in Blackpool, as well as performing at other Pontins camps around the country.
Russ' latest venture is into the world of the 'Black-light Puppet Show' and he has created and performed two shows. 'The Haunted House Spooktacular' and 'A Space Idiocy' have both been seen by thousands of people and have won acclaim from audiences and professionals alike. His next show is still under wraps at the moment but he promises it will be 'as manic, magical and memorable as the others'.
Having won many awards in the past, including the Leisure Parcs Entertainer Of The Year, 2009 saw Russ receive the coveted Ken Dodd Comedy Award.
Russ is currently appearing daily throughout the season at Planet Rock, Pleasure Beach, Blackpool.
Andy’s Action Party is fun packed with magical fun shows, balloon modelling, plate spinning, music, party dances and many more games.
