Testimonials

For us, there is nothing better than a happy customer. And we have lots of them! Here are just a few that let us know how much we meant to them.


Josh and Ed were fabulous with our diverse group of 65 students and 20 professionals from all over the country. They had us up and moving around, laughing and engaging, and also brought out the skills improv teaches for our work and life. I would work with them again in a heartbeat.

Circus Kaput is my go-to company for party entertainment. They offer a wide range of options for your custom party experience. He's an excellent performer and captivating presence at parties for children and adults. I've seen Circus Kaput perform in both large venues and small and it's always an amazing show. Josh and Ginger are wonderful to work with because they are highly professional and responsive. St. Louis is fortunate to have Circus Kaput! They book up quick, so plan ahead if possible!

I wanted to thank you & Josh very much for performing at Joe's Birthday party on Saturday! The kids had such a great time! I think you two may be single handedly be bringing back the traditional kids' home party. A few of the Moms told me their kids loved the face painting, balloon animals and Josh's show so much they want to have a birthday party at home too! Josh is brilliant and wonderful with kids and Joe's party could not have been the hit it was without your participation.

My wife and I had a cirque themed wedding. To complete the theme, we needed performers to entertain our guests before the wedding and at the reception. Circus Kaput provided first rate entertainment without breaking our budget.

They arrived with a wide range of acts (jugglers, a stilt walker, unicyclist, magician, etc) who mingled with our guests for a fabulous night of walking theatre. Our guests could not have been happier with the entertainment and neither could we.

I'm just wrapping up a few thank-yous for our big party at the Contemporary Art Museum on November 19, and I just realized that I failed to thank you for the Greek statue act!

She was perfect, and it was fun to watch guests' reactions to her---first they thought she was part of the art exhibit, until she blinked! Then they realized she was real! It was a real kick, and we all thank you for providing her.

Phenomenal - I have watched Circus Kaput perform for years at different events around St. Louis including New Year's Eve's First Night, Shakespeare in the Park, and even weddings! I was married this past August and tried to hire Oh My Gosh Josh for entertainment but he was already booked. I am always amazed at his fantastical feats and comedy. I can't recommend him enough!

Circus Kaput came to our fundraising event. They provided juggling, a magic show, a circus workshop, and face painting. I have never laughed so hard during a magic show in my life! We put up pictures of the kids (and adults!) with their faces painted in our office! We'll always remember this event.

Thanks again, for your professionalism and for your truly incredible show. You are gifted entertainers and my guests are still talking about it.

I have hired Josh and his team at Circus Kaput for a number of events through the years. He and his team arrive on site with great attitudes and do an amazing job. Our event guests have ranged from young children to grown-ups. No matter what the crowd, Josh knows what will work best for them, and he provides entertainment solutions that keep people very happy. On top of that, it is always a pleasure to work with Josh arranging the details and managing the event.

It was really great. The magician was a big hit and so was the caricature artist. In fact we asked the artist to stay a little longer!

Thank you so much!!

Ginger and Josh did my son's 4 year Birthday Party! They did a great job I would recommend them to anyone. They kept the party moving and the kids attention and they loved it, and the adults enjoyed it to! They both have unbelievable talent; Ginger and her face painting is amazing and Oh My Gosh Josh my son is still saying that while he runs around giggling and pretending to do magic tricks! It was a birthday party that he will always remember for sure and all his friends to! I just want to say thanks to Ginger and Josh for helping make it possible!

Jumpin' Joe was super fantastic, wonderfully great!!!!!! He says he "had a good teacher." Thank you so much for finding him for our event at such short notice. The summer ice cream social was a big hit because of Joe. I really wanted to share with you how impressed I and my Central Institute For The Deaf and L'Arche friends are that you, and now Joe have such a way with people, especially those with challenges. Both of you are so inviting, gracious and sensitive to our special friends. Joe just jumped right in and he made everyone feel included.
Do you know what a gift this is? You both have this unique and humble human quality.

You both fit right into our gentle community. Thank you so very much.

You will have a place in our community forever.

Oh My Gosh Josh was an amazing collaborative partner and the quality and professionalism of Circus Kaput is unparalleled in the St. Louis region. I cannot wait to work with Josh again. His spirit and talent helped carry my projects through to perfection and without his help as a producer and performer I'm certain I would not have received the results I did.

We loved your extraordinary program of magic, circus stunts, juggling and balancing. You were a HUGE hit with the kids and parents. We really, really appreciated the references you made to books and reading....everything you recommended flew out the door. Thanks!

Circus Kaput's magic workshop really developed our kids confidence and self-esteem. The staff and I enjoyed seeing the smiles on their faces while performing and watching each other perform, it was great. We will definitely have them back.

We just wanted to tell you how blown away we were with what you did at Will's party. You were absolutely amazing! We can't stop talking about how funny you were, how exquisite the face painting was and how much fun those kids had! You gave Will such a spectacular day! Thanks again!

We used Circus Kaput for our UPN 46 Fall Premiere party, and it was a pleasure working with them. Josh is very organized, efficient, and had an excellent rapport with everyone involved. The crowd loved Circus Kaput and I would definitely work with them again given the opportunity.

I have hired many entertainers for events through the years and Josh Routh with Circus Kaput is my go to entertainer! He is so engaging and great at what he does! Children or adult events, he always knows how to draw the crowd in and he really has the WOW factor. I have guests and groups that I work with asking if Josh will be back all the time. He's also great to work with and very accommodating.
