Dark Parlour – unique to Alex Crow – is sure to be the talking point of any corporate event. Whatever the season, whether you are organising a private party or a large event, the must-have entertainment for this season is The Dark Parlour. Now it is the time to start thinking about the functions and events for the rest of the year. Christmas 2017 will soon be upon us, and maybe Halloween 2017! Although this is booked out at all different times of the year, Halloween is where it really comes into its own.
Dark Parlour With Alex Crow
Alex has some great props including a stuffed crow perched on a deer skull, a vampire hunters chest, a shrunken head, mummified finger and lots more, plus of course candles. This is always a great excuse to have an event with some really cool theming – you could even encourage the guests to dress up. Loads of great games to play – everything from bobbing for apples to personal favourite – guess what is in the box!
You can have some really good fun with this, especially if you have a friendly butcher who you can persuade to give you some bits and pieces (imagine a party with a pigs ear, a pigs eye, a chicken foot, a pigs heart as well as maggots and worms from the fishing shop!) As well as games you can have some fun designing the food as well as the decor. But the main reason we love Halloween is that we get to use Alex Crow and his Parlour!
Dark Parlour Darker Side
Most of the routines he performs are based on the “darker side” – witchcraft, murder, voodoo, ghouls and ghosts and things that go bump in the night (although he may well do a bit of mind-reading as well)!
Alex is normally set up in an area with a chair behind for him and four chairs in front and then guests sit down for 10 minutes or so of madness before making way for the next group. Invariably there is a queue all night long as this is certainly something your guests won’t have seen before as it is totally unique to Alex Crow. We’d love to secure a booking for you!
A complete set-up consists of tarot cloths, stuffed crow atop a deer skull, shrunken heads, candles, vampire hunters kit and loads of other weird and esoteric props. Alex sits behind the table and invites your clients to come and sit on the four chairs in front for 10 minutes or so of close-up weirdness and tales of the macabre. Witches, ghosts, murder, voodo and some very strange magic and mind reading. Alex performs primarily in the corporate field, providing: walkabout mind reading, “weird stuff” as well as a 45 minute cabaret show for audiences of 20 – 500 or more. He was a contestant on Come Dine With Me on 27/3/11.
Dark Parlour Client Feedback
“Alex was brill. Not only was he really flexible to our needs, but the reaction to his performance during the meal was fantastic. I have not seen so many jaws hit the floor in one go before. He really shocked his volunteer with the Russian roulette, she was convinced he was just about to severely wound himself, and was actually shaking. He never saw that behind the blindfold, but naturally, as a mindreader, he knew that anyway!” Greg (corporate client)
“I wanted the wow factor at our party and you certainly gave us that!“ Sarah Kane (Viacom Outdoor)
