Hi! My name is Stephen Duncan (A.K.A. The BubbleMan) and I welcome you to my official website! I am a performance artist and bubble enthusiast who works as a proprietor in the great city of New York. I first became acquainted with my craft over a decade ago, but I have had a deep-seated passion for bubbles since the age of 7. I was inspired by other performers around the country and the world who have made a living pursuing their passion for this medium. I was reintroduced to bubbles in the summer of '07 when I came across a bubble toy vendor in lower Manhattan. My love for bubbles was reinvigorated shortly after that encounter. Since then, I have continued to put on weekly performances in parks and public squares both in and outside the greater New York area.
Making huge, free-floating soap bubbles is an awesome activity, but the one thing that makes it worthwhile is interacting with the public. Putting on bubble shows in the park has not only allowed me to earn a modest income, it has helped to bolster my confidence and networking skills. I have also had the privilege of sharing my craft with a whole generation of people, both young and old from all nations, cultures and walks of life. As a way of marketing my business, I would put on regular shows in Central Park near the Bethesda Terrace, which I performed at for several years. I also put on performances downtown in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village as well as parts of Brooklyn. I build all of the bubble wands and make all of the solution that I use in my shows as well. I also have an online store where I sell my wands to customers across the country and worldwide. So come and enjoy a picturesque show of free floating bubbles or grab a wand and join me! It's an experience you'll never forget!
Wanna have bubbles at your kid's birthday party or a special performance for your business, organization or institution? The BubbleMan is at your service! Over the last ten years I have performed for school events, churches, street fairs, film projects, charity events, theater programs, community projects and more birthday parties than I can count! Contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or my business number at (917)-370-0920 to book me for an upcoming event at a private or public venue of your choice.
NOTE: Please contact me for service rates.
Yes, I perform at private functions and events. Kids' birthdays are where I am most often hired. But, I also perform in a wide array of other areas as well. So, if you feel that your event could be better with bubbles, don't hesitate to call.
Clients on average usually book me for an hour. If it's for multiple hours, I will charge accordingly. I also perform half hour shows for those who are on a budget.
In order to book my services for your event, you must submit your full name and event details along with an exact date, event location and contact number. I must be aware of any changes so that I can respond accordingly.
This is critically important. Since I work full time, I obviously have obligations to my employer to appear on certain days of the week. If your event falls on a date when I am working, I will require at least two weeks notice so that I can request a day off to service your event. This will greatly improve your odds of securing my services. However, I cannot guarantee that my employer will give me that day off.
As much as I would love to be able to accommodate all of my clients, I must operate on a first come, first serve basis as my work calendar fills up fast. Then, of course, there are personal needs. Be respectful of my priorities, and I will be respectful of yours.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I CANNOT ACCEPT LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS UNLESS IT FALLS ON A DATE WHEN I AM AVAILABLE. NO EXCEPTIONS.
