"We scheduled an Acting Class and a Clowning Class during the summer for the children from our Day Camp and Church to attend. The children loved it, and at the end of both camps put on a delightful demonstration of what they had learned during the week. The parents and children were very pleased and have asked me to schedule Chris to come and provide the opportunity again next summer."
Debbie Thompson, Minister to Children, First Baptist Church Tulsa
"Great interaction with children. They loved his humor, his jokes, and the fact that he included them in his science experiments, jokes, and balloon tricks. He is definitely someone I want back again."
BA Library, 2011.
"Chris had a great Rapport with the kids and allowed numerous kids to volunteer. He had them laughing and participating at all levels. There was no boring science talk yet lots of science with a lot of fum and, um, mess. Great fun. The kids could have watched experiments all day."
Tulsa Libraries, 2011.
"His show was exciting, engaging, and enjoyed by the whole audience, children and adults. He added dialog to make his simple experiments exciting. A terrific program! Science was a great addition to our summer programming."

The Junior League of Tulsa's Annual Meeting was held at Tulsa Country Club on May 18, 2011 and it was to everyone's delight that Christopher Middlebrook and Molli McDaniel entertained the crowd of over 150.
" I wish they could have performed all night." A member said after the meeting.
Another member commented "Chris' voice is so incredibly beautiful...and his
accent is dreamy." The richness and passion of the opera are organic in
their performance. I unequivocally recommend BAM entertainment for any
Junior League of Tulsa, 2010-2011
"Chris Middlebrook was the undoubted "star" of the show. With his rich tenor voice, he performed his vocal numbers flawlessly and with ease, interpreting them with energy and humor or with stirring emotion, as required. The cast enjoyed working with him so much that as we were planning for the next fundraising performance, everyone agreed that they would take part only if Chris Middlebrook could be engaged again. We look forward to another stellar professional appearance in September, 2011."

"I have had the pleasure of working with Chris Middlebrook at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame as a performer and he was, without a double, absolutely sensational. He has an amazing voice, extraordinary talent and shining personality. Everyone loved Chris and we can't wait to have him back "knocking our socks off" with his amazing talent.

Recently, Thoreau Demonstration Academy had the opportunity to have Chris lead a lesson for our 7th and 8th grade drama classes. He came prepared with activities that engaged every student, exposed them to new elements of drama and entertained the group at every turn. Chris led the classes through breathing exercises, script work and improv games -- all of which they thoroughly enjoyed. It's always great to have guest speakers in the classroom, and Chris definitely was a smash hit. Students said the workshop was "fun," "awesome" and "cool" -- the best feedback middle schoolers could offer. We're ready for the return of Chris Middlebrook!

"Clonky helped us celebrate Saint Simeon's 50th Anniversary at our Homecoming Picnic. His antics entertained everyone of all ages! The kids really loved the balloon animals. It's just not a party without Clonky the Clown!"

"The best part about Pirate Camp were the balloon sword fights, crocodiles and pretending Blackbeard was near us playing with his gold. I liked it, I loved it, it was fun!!! I miss you Captain Chris!"

"Cora had a great time yesterday, she loved the [private acting] session and now thinks you are the coolest - high praise from an eighth grader! Thanks so much!"
"My son had one special request for his fourth birthday party: a clown. Clonky made the day! He was perfect with the kids, both younger and older. Between balloon creation, unicycling and silliness, he kept the party going for two hours! I know we'll have him back for another party."
"We hired Clonky for our grand opening of a retail garden center. Clonky had the kids completely engaged and laughing. We overheard real, live, children in the wild, exclaim "He's funny!" as he rode his unicycle out of the room. Clonky is high energy and witty for kids and adults alike. If you require a clown, storyteller, juggler, magician, and all around fun guy, Clonky is YOUR clown!"

"[Singer] Chris Middlebrook and his accompanist, Amy Cottingham, were a delightfully talented duo. The attention the resident's gave them and the smiles generated were priceless. We look forward to having them back again."

"Clonky was a great addition to our festivities at the 2009 Parade of Homes. He engaged the kids and parents, alike, helping keep it light and entertaining. Being dragged through new homes isn't always how kids want to spend their day, so Clonky made it fun!"
