Dear Sir/Madam:

It has been my pleasure to bear witness to the wonders of Pongo on two hilarious occasions. Paul Mordoff as Pongo succeeded on both attempts to bring smiles to the faces of children living at a local Kids in Crisis center where AIFS has hosted a party for the past two years. Even more impressive is the fact that Paul was able to amuse with his antics his otherwise stodgy work colleagues participating at the same function.

In addition to his knack for balloon-sculpting and juggling, Paul's high energy in the role of Pongo, his constant chatter, his ability to draw kids in such that they 'fight' for his attention, and his patience and wit with the wig-pullers and non- believers make Pongo perfect for the billing. Besides all of the fun stuff, Paul is reliable and very courteous.
