Primrose Valley Holiday Centre Video Clip from 1996

 

Here is a short clip of me performing at one of Haven Holiday's Largest Holiday Centres, Primrose Valley - the venue was a 1500 seater, Princes Family Room where I did Magic, Kids Game Shows and Adult Game for a Giggles

 

I was Resident Professional Entertainer here 1993, 94, 95, 96 & 97, i had all ready done 9 seasons on other the parks

 

When watching, remember - I was a more cheeky on the holiday parks ad the holiday guests all knew my character and what to expect ... at private functions, i am a lot gentler!

 

Please excuse the video and sound quality as this was recorded live,not using professional recording gear - but is a live performance with a great audience reaction.
