**Blake Everett Robinson is a 17-year-old high-school student from Arlington Heights, Illinois. Ask anyone who knows Blake to describe him, and they will undoubtedly say, “fun!” Blake’s love for humor and magic began almost before he could walk and talk. To this day, nothing makes Blake happier than making others laugh and enjoy themselves. Through his magic, balloon animal art, and warm and enthusiastic stage presence, Blake brings easy smiles and laughter to his audience. Blake is comfortable performing for groups of all ages and abilities. He has performed at nursing homes and schools, block parties and birthday celebrations, and has a special gift for performing to those with mental and physical disabilities. Blake is an involved student at John Hersey High School, participating in football, track & field, the Service Over Self program, and even ping pong club. He is an experienced drummer and plays in a neighborhood garage band. Let it be said that wherever he goes, Blake looks for the fun…and usually finds it!  So if you’re looking for a big-hearted, energetic, talented and FUN performer for your next event, call or e-mail Blake Everett at:  (224) 425 – 8371
