Thank you captain calamity.

Both Pari and Freddie had an amazing 6th birthday party today. Joint party's are never too easy but you made both boys feel very special. Friends and parents had a fabulous time.

Just had my sons 5th birthday party and used Captain Calamity for the second time. He was just as good second time round and the best children's party entertainer we have used or have seen. Couldn't recommend him more highly. Adults and children alike were mesmerised by the bubbles.


Deborah Smookler – 5 star
I booked Captain Calamity 6 months ago after seeing him at a friend's party. 'I can see why' was the response by others today. Brilliant entertainer both kids and adults loved the party today. Quality. Thanks again!


Beth Apple – 5 star
Captain Calamity provided us with a brilliant afternoon of silly entertainment and crazily giant bubbles that kept all the children and even their parents transfixed. My five-year-old daughter said "I think I will remember this party and going inside a bubble forever..."


Thank you thank you Captain Calamity, we salute you!


Lisa Hoad – 5 star
Thank you for an amazing party! My daughter was so excited to have Captain Calamity at her party - she was over the moon when she finally got to go in one of your gigantic bubbles!! All the kids had an incredible time, as did the parents who watched your bubble show in awe!!!


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hi Dov....thanks once again for a brilliant party yesterday - Jayden had an absolute blast and thoroughly enjoyed himself. The highlight being how much the adults were just as captivated as the kids during the bubble entertainment! Great work!! Thanks - Ben Flatter

Thank you for a fantastic party today! Jesse and Zac had the best time as did all the kids! We will be booking for your show in September! It was truly excellent!


Just wanted to say a huge thanks for last Sunday’s party. We thought you were excellent and have also had feedback from several of the parents who came along.  Thanks for all your effort in making it such a special day for Cara and Georgia. By the way, Cara’s favourite present was the pink guitar. In fact, she’s dancing around the room with it right now to some reggae music!


Thanks again and see you again soon.


Best wishes

Archie! Thank you so much for all your help with booking Dov for Jasmine’s party - he was WONDERFUL, AMAZING, MAGICAL, FUNNY, the list is endless- children and adults alike were entertained continually, he was without doubt the best entertainer I have ever seen at a kids party, he even got Jasmine involved which is no mean feat as she is so shy!! He made each and every child feel so special and part of the party, nothing was too much trouble for him - I would highly recommend him to anyone.


Thanks again so much!

Ruth, Steve and Jasmine



Hi Dov


Feedback from Scooby Doo party :)


The party was fantastic! Very pleased! Thanks so much for a grand party.

Captain Calamity was AWESOME - went down extremely well with kids and adults - we will be using him again


Unfortunately no video footage or photos - but 80 happy kids!!


Thanks once again



Just a note to say that Captain Calamity was fantastic.  He arrived early which for me is always a good sign and from that moment on was completely professional.  The best part however was how he kept everyone  (17months to 50 years old) entertained for the whole 2 hours with staff trying also to catch a bit of the show.


I am very happy and would not hesitant to recommend him to others and have again next year.


Many thanks and have a lovely Christmas.

House Manager




Thanks for providing another great entertainment!  You certainly make it a pleasure to work with your company, it is so reassuring to get the same efficient, high standard of service and of performers every single time.


Dov’s team were excellent; very smooth and professional during the performance and very friendly and helpful in the planning stage.  They incorporated a few bits of inside knowledge to great effect – ask Dov to tell you about Pigging!  One of the team actually lives about 10 minutes from me – it’s a small, small world! (We know a song about that don’t we?)


We may have to hold the event in London next year, which will severely deplete my entertainment budget; but you can be sure that you will be my first port of call if I have the funds... my only problem will be how to top the last two years – people were still talking about the Balloon Lunatics at this year’s party!


Thanks again








Hello  Dov,


Thanks for a great job in Morocco. The client was really pleased and is interested in doing more work with us so thanks very much!


Kind Regards,


Contraband International Ltd



The event went well. Dov did a wonderful job, and was sooo nice and very easy going.

I'm glad. Thank you.


Please send me a complete infos of your company i want to establish a strong partnership.


Best regards,

He was brilliant, best entertainer we have ever seen, children loved him, thank you!

Balloon Jam! Is an enertaining interactive show, which appeals to children of all ages and even their parents! We at the Ashely centre were pleased to be the first venue to host this innovative act to be performed by Madhouse Entertainment. All the elements were spot on, fantastic set, props, tricks and performers. The happy laughs and shrieks of childen filled the shopping centre and were testiment to the show's success.


The Ashley Shopping Centre, Epsom



My goodness he was incredible. All the children loved him, laughed with him and went home requesting the same entertainer for their upcoming parties. So, no doubt I will be sending on your details to all. We will definitely be using him again. He was everything we'd hoped for and went beyond expectation. In character from the moment he stepped inside the door.


Thank you from all of us




If all your entertainers are as good then your company deserves as to be very successful indeed.

Thank you very much Captain for turning our party into a successful Calamity, - we will spread Orthodox Calamity in North London by means of conversion (attached photo will be sent with thankyous for pressy to all). We look forward to Zari's next party- say thanks to Dov for bringing you to us, we know you live near him. Best Wishes, from Ruby Usiskin (now 5 years old)

Dear Dov


Thanks so much for the great feedback from County Square:


"I saw Captain Calamity two/three times as my boss was down yesterday and we were walking around the site.  He was excellent and had a captive audience each time.  I sadly did not get time to speak directly with him but he did phone to let me know he was leaving and I rang him back to say I thought he was very good.

I am sure we shall be in touch again."


Thanks again

Just wanted to drop a quick email to let you know how the party went on Monday and give you some feedback on Dov.


To my surprise, despite the snow we had 30 very excited 5 year olds descend upon the venue and Dov’s first challenge was to keep them all entertained whilst the birthday boy was stuck in traffic for 30 minutes! I must say, he was FANTASTIC! He engaged them all with current ‘kidspeak’, magic and circus tricks and they were soon hanging on his every word. It was marvellous to see! A true expert in his field. (And I thought I was up-to-date with the latest Ben 10 episodes …….. J)


For the next 2 hours he brought the Kerwhizzator to life for Rian (who couldn’t quite believe that the Kerwhizzator was at his party!) and made sure every child was praised and congratulated whilst not failing to make a fuss of the birthday boy. He got several parents involved too (there is somewhere a photo of me wrapped in toilet paper!) and I have never known so many adults wanting to stay and experience the ‘magic’ he and his colleague were creating.


He enlisted Rian’s help to award each child with a medal at the end and everyone left with “Kerwhizz! The quiz with added whizz!” firmly embedded in their brains.


Dov checked in with me half way through to make sure I was happy, was more than open to leading the ‘Happy Birthday’ singing for us and generally went the extra mile to make sure that Rian and his friends were swept away into the worlds of Ninky and Pip, Twist and Snout and Kit and Kaboodle.


This is definitely the way to do birthday parties! I could actually enjoy the occasion with Rian and literally didn’t have to worry about a thing.


Lots of parents have complimented Dov and Martin to me and I have passed on your details.


Thank you very much for making Rian’s party the huge success that it was. Please pass on my thanks again to Dov.


As Rian said to him on Monday afternoon, ‘Excuse me Kerwhizzator…….. this was the BEST birthday party EVER! See you next time!’


Thanks again,


Claire and Ian Skinner



This morning went really well. The children had a fantastic time and Dov did an absolutely first rate job of keeping them entertained! Everyone there (children and adults) was very impressed with him indeed. It was exactly what we were looking for. Please pass on my huge thanks to him!

*** NEWS JUST IN! Dov recently had the pleasure of entertaining at the parties of both David and Rocco; the children of Guy Ritchie and Madonna. ***



Re: Archie's spy party 27/06‏


Thank you so much for today.

Everyone had a great time. This evening Arch said it was his favourite party and the best bit was having a real spy - to be honest I didn't think he'd be taken in, but you seem to have pulled it off.


I think it would have been so different from other parties that the group would have had so thank you for facilitating so well. Thank you also for putting so much thought into it. I know that Stewart put a lot of work into it, but you really took the trouble to understand exactly what we wanted, and it was obvious that you had prepared really well.


The Archster is everything to us so we're so happy that it worked well, and that his mates had a good time. I told you they'd be a demanding group, but I hope you weren't too exhausted!


Thanks again





I have finally got round to sending you an email, it has been on my list of things to do since the day after Callum's party!  I just wanted to say a big thank you for entertaining the kids on the 8th Feb.  They are all still going on about Captain Calamity and his dragon!  I have had some many great comments from the parents about the entertainment you provided.


Thanks again,





Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for making Holly's party so special yesterday, you were an absolute star - she had a great time and all the guests are saying it was the best party ever, I couldn't have wished for a better result. The other parents were also very impressed so hopefully word will get round and your phone will be ringing off the hook.


Charlie is now buzzing about his upcoming Jedi party, may the force be with us for better weather this time!


See you in three weeks.


Best wishes,





I would just like to say once again how fantastic Pitch and Patch have been. I have only had really positive feedback – you guys have been a wonderful choice of Christmas entertainment! Thank you!


Kind regards,


Marketing Manager of Ashley Centre, Epsom



I just wanted to say that the two performers were delightful on Saturday.

They were extremely professional and a real hit with the kids and parents.

They were also very accommodating.


I would use them and your company again anytime. Shame birthdays only

happen once a year!


Kind regards


Princess Claire Kelly of Brunei



Please accept my sincere thanks for the show/disco you put on for my daughter yesterday.


Please send out your cards so I can hand to all my parents as we all agree that it was FANTASTIC (The Kids told them all about you!)


Many thanks again


Mrs Mortlock



I can’t express how delighted we are (and have been) with Dov Citron and Madhouse Entertainment. We’ve used them continuously throughout 2007 and intend to use them again in 2008. When running the grotto, the staff operating it not only came costumed up (to a very high standard) as Santa and Elves, but they were all trained actors and entertainers who actively engaged the children with magic, balloon modelling and circus skills whilst they waited in the queue to see Santa. This sort of entertainment really does enhance the customer experience. So much so, that Ken Ford commented on the buzzy atmosphere on the Mall during his At Mall visit – something that the grotto and Madhouse certainly helped to create. I would not hesitate recommending them to other Malls, not only in running grottos but also throughout the year for numerous events.

Just a quick note to thank you for the entertainment at Robert's Party last weekend.  Your pirate theme was just what Robert wanted and the mix of magic, dancing, stories, and games went down a treat.


All the kids had a great time and we were delighted that it all went so well.




James & Marisa



What can I say about Dov and the team? Always on time, brilliant costumes, work great with the client, totally trustworthy, clients love them, innovative, fun a pleasure to work with, the list could go on. I have worked with the team on a number of varied events now and they have ALWAYS exceeded my expectations. And what’s more they are fun to work with and low maintenance too, vital when working with a stressed event manager behind the scenes!


Kind regards

Thank you very much for being such an excellent Entertainer for us at Leo's James Bond Party.


We were so impressed with your skills.  The boys (and the girl) really had so much fun with you.  Your command was excellent (and at times it really was needed!)  I hope everything was OK at your end too. You worked so hard and you seemed to have so many props/tricks for those just in-case-moments, both my husband and I immediately felt relaxed that the children would be having a fantastic time, which they did.


I do not know what the theme will be for next year, but we would really love to have you Entertain again, so "be prepared, we're coming back!"


May we once again say many thanks for such a superb party.




Nimrod, Leo and Sarah Tal.



As an entertainment company we have used MAD House for a variety of events - a corporate children's pantomime, an 'It's a Knockout' Fun day (as comedy referees), and recently for two children's community shows - Rhyme Time in Storyland and Captain Calamity's Pirate Show.  In all of the shows we have been impressed by their transformations into funny, colourful characters which interact so well with their audiences, whether they are 2 years old or for corporate team building. Costumes and sets are colourful, eye-catching and are perfect for photo opportunities at any event. The team are punctual, highly professional and are adaptable to fit to the client's brief, whilst giving excellent advice based on their own long experience. I would not hesitate to use them again and look forward to trying out some of their other characters for future events.



Cohesion ltd



Mad House Entertainment, what a find! Dov and Martin are talented children's entertainers and actors.  Their high energy performances keep both the children and parents entertained.  Professional and reliable I know I can send them to any job and will be guaranteed excellent feedback. Furthermore, Dov's script writing skills have enabled us to develop a real

unique range of parties.
