Welcome to the World of Restaurant Entertainment

This is my knowledge and experience about working, acquiring and entertaining at restaurants. The information is not just for the balloon entertainer, but also for all who wishes to entertain at a restaurant.

About Dale the Entertainer

If you ask Dale where he learned his skills, he will tell you from a bunch of twisted people. While attending college he met a group of professional entertainers, which met every Monday and would practice in the gym. Always wanting to learn how to juggle, Dale joined this merry group.

This Illinois entertainer learned from world-class jugglers, unicyclist, magicians, clowns, balloonists, fire-eaters, theatrical entertainers, and vaudevillians. “I did not realize at the time how lucky I was to be working with such talented people and the skills and techniques that were freely given to me” said Dale “I have used all my entertainment skills over the years, but have decided I would rather be a Master of one form of entertainment, than a jack-of-all-trades. So a Master Balloonist I became.”

Dale's unique mix of comedy and balloon twisting has been making people laugh since 1984. He actively writes for trade show blogs, entertainment newsletter and professional organizations while constantly working on new communication techniques to improve his entertainment business.

Dale started DEO Consulting, Inc in 1988 to handle the ever-increasing demand for his performing expertise and special event know-how. Except for taking a little time out to earn a master's degree in Communication from Governors State University, Dale has spent the past twenty-six years performing at private and corporate events.

Dale's background consists of 15 years as an Associate Professor, where he educated faculty, students and corporate America on techniques to improve upon their business and organizational skills, while interjecting lighthearted comedy. His drive to get the most out of himself is infectious and quickly spread to those who are around him.

Dale's performances are always custom-tailored to the audience. Whether performing at a college, entertaining corporate clients after dinner, astonishing guest at a cocktail party with his balloon twisting, or at a private event. Dale ways integrates audience participation, humor and this unforgettable balloon creation ensuring the event will be special

His many accomplishments so far so far in his life have been:

  • Married in 1998 with two sons

  1. Great idea, Dale!
    I'd be interested to read your thoughts on whether an entertainer should focus on quantity or quality when going table to table, as both can have various pros and cons.
