"The Pendleton Community Public Library
hosted Waldo the Clown for a children's program, & the kids loved it! The
program is great for kids in the elementary grades, but it is also fun for
adults as well. Waldo does tricks that are entertaining, but he also
combines an educational aspect to everything he does. Booking this event
was easy, & Waldo/Professor Steve is a pleasure to work with. We've had
him at the library for just about every program that he offers, & he never
disappoints! He packs the house every time!"

"Thank you so very much for your wonderful visit to our school.
The children enjoyed the show so much & got so much out of it. I truly
don't remember a convocation where the kids were so excited & involved. Your
special visit with our class was like icing on the cake. Thank you so much for
brightening our week!"
Danville North Elementary School
"Steve's program incorporates a great deal of audience
participation & he is skilled at maintaining the children's attention throughout the
program. This is a program our students enjoyed thoroughly."
Grabill Missionary Church
"I just wanted to take a minute & let you know
how much we loved your program! I have used Professor Steve several times
in the past & loved every time you were with us. I have hesitated about
Waldo because some children are afraid of clowns. I watched your promo
videos & because I know what a great job & how kid friendly you were as
Professor Steve, I decided to give it a try! You were unbelievably great &
the kids loved Waldo! Not only were the kids laughing & having a great
time, but your message was clear, easy for kids to remember & God centered!
I had one second grade boy who told me before
the program began that he was very afraid of clowns. He was a bit teary &
wanted to sit in the far back. After about 5 minutes I looked to see how
he was doing & he had moved clear up front, very close to Waldo & was having a
wonderful time! I would recommend both your Waldo the Clown & Professor
Steve programs to anyone! Thanks again for being a part of our special
evening & thanks for sharing Jesus with children in such a fun, unique & kid
"I don't know, if while you are performing, whether you get a
chance to look at the kid's eyes. Thursday night they were as big as
silver dollars. You made an impact on those in attendance that will
last a long time."
"Aside from the professionalism of Waldo, and beyond his humor
is the way he presented the gospel. This had to be one of the most
effective ways I've seen for captivating an audience and sharing Christ.
Any age would benefit from a night with Waldo!"
"Your ministry has truly been a blessing to our church for the past
3 years. We hope we can have you back for at least 3 more. You were
"fantastico"! The kids paid attention, retained your message and they've
been asking, "When is Waldo coming back?" It is evident that God has given
you special talents and abilities to reach the young kids with the gospel message."
"One parent said, "My kids couldn't wait to get to church
tonight to see Waldo.""
"His presentation was done very professionally and carried a
strong Biblical message. The clown format seems to be a very effective tool for
teaching Biblical truths, especially for little ones."
"If you are looking for a special event for youth or adults that
will be entertaining while pointing your audience to God and His Word, "Waldo the
Clown" is for You!"
"Waldo is a clown who has a passion for Jesus Christ, and this
passion comes through with every program he has. Each time Waldo has been in
Moweaqua the ministry value of his program has been incredible. Without a doubt,
your church or organization will be blessed and pleased if you share Waldo's passion for
"Steve Walden, a.k.a. Waldo the Clown, can deliver. He's a
great entertainer, story-teller, magician, balloon animal maker, jokester, preacher, and
clown. And he can do it all in budget that will fit your needs."
"I was amazed as he kept young children, teenagers, and even adults
listening intently as he related Biblical truths through the tricks of trade used by a
clown. He made our youth kick-off into a night to remember."
"I am most impressed with the way that Steve relates a Christian,
positive message to each act that he performs. He not only brings it down to their
level (we have had preschool and elementary children involved) he makes it very
interesting and they love him. We have had groups anywhere from 60 to 200 and they
are totally engrossed in "Waldo" every time."
"During the past ten years my three youth
ministries have had a few things in common: basically: Teaching, Preaching and Reaching.
Waldo the Clown is able to minister within all three of these areas in his
Gospel-oriented programs. That is why I have had him four different times over the
past eight years and hope to have him participate again and again and again!!!"
"The one thing you can be sure of when Waldo
is performing is that God's Word will be presented and the kids will enjoy the lesson.
His mixture of "clowning skills" and magic tricks help the crowd see the
"Through humor, balloons, juggling and illusions he drove home the
importance of reading and doing God's Word in a way to which the adults, the very young
children and the older, 'wiser,' more skeptical boys could relate."
"He did a great job of interacting with the kids, getting them to
participate with excitement."
"As Waldo the Clown, an easy rapport was established and maintained
with the audience that made the program entertaining and delightful. Waldo also
provides a point of contact for the children that makes the message he shares more
"As a clown he can open doors and touch lives and provide an
outreach to people who might not otherwise be receptive to the church."
"His humor, wit, and actions hit home with great applications.
All of us were challenged to make a change in our life because of God's work
"Steve led a seminar for our adults on how to be creative in
teaching God's Word. His ideas were so practical and so easy that even the least
creative person could be creative with the steps Steve showed. My teachers are now
excited about teaching God's Word."
"Waldo presents a message about Jesus that is both fun and heart
warming. With his crazy assortment of props Waldo makes the audience laugh and have
fun while they are learning some very valuable lessons."
"Waldo appeals to all age groups as well. Our assembly
included children, teens and adults of all ages. Everyone was equally entertained
and encouraged by Waldo's presentation."
"Waldo the Clown is a very talented teacher. He was able to
hold the attention of over 50 youth whose grades were from preschool to high school.
Waldo was even able to reach through his message many adults."

entertains while he teaches. This is something that is necessary in order to reach

Vigo County Public Library
Terre Haute, Indiana
"We were so happy to have your first visit to
our library be the kick-off program for our Summer Reading Programs. From
the moment you fired up the leaf blower, you had our audience of all ages
The program was perfect for our older children
who were able to grasp the scientific terms & concepts & then see them first
hand from your experiments. Our young children who didn't know the science
concepts were still entertained by your "magical" demonstrations.
Thank you for promoting reading & checking out
library materials to learn more about the fascinating world of science.
Our "Be Creative @ Your Library" theme was an excellent fit for your "Professor
Steve's Unseen Forces Show".
I enjoyed working with you & look forward to
arranging future visits with you. I would recommend your program to anyone
looking for educational & entertaining programs for children of all ages."
Lebanon Public Library
"Steve has a wonderful ability to relate to children of all ages.
Using audience participation Professor Steve kept the kids fascinated from
beginning to end. Our parents were very enthusiastic about the learning aspect as
well as keeping the group focused. I highly recommend Professor Steve for his
ability to relate well to children of all ages & his encouragement of the learning of
science as a fun activity. His program is very useful as a program for schools as
well as libraries"
"I'm not quite sure how he did it, but somehow Professor Steve managed to
entertain about 300 kindergarten through fifth grade students for three 45
minute presentations that were educational. I'd even go so far as
to say that enthralled might be a better word than entertained. Steve had
their complete attention & made learning science fun. He understands what
kids like, how they think & how they learn. He amuses them, catches their
interest & teaches them lessons before they even realize it. The best part
is that students come away from the program not only with more scientific
knowledge, but also with the desire to continue to learn even more.
Several teachers mentioned that their students actually clapped when told to get
out their science books after Professor Steve's visit to our school. I
believe that we will be reaping the benefits of Steve's visit for a long time to
come. I highly recommend Steve's programs to any school looking for a way
to boost student interest in & love of science."
Saint Gabriel School
"We want to thank you for your presentation of Professor Steve's
Reasons to Say No Show. Your illustrations were wonderful. The children talked
about the show the rest of the day & parents heard about the facts you told them that
night. Instead of 'What did you learn today at school? with the answer...nothing,'
the parents heard about science & their bodies. How different food, drugs,
alcohol & smoking hurt their bodies. One child went home & told her mom 'My
body is a temple of God & I have to take care of it.'
Incorporating God's Word
into your presentation was so wonderful. It made the children see God in their
lives. Your presentation Blessed our school. The children laughed &
learned important facts. The visual experiments made a lasting impression on them.
Thanks again for sharing science & how it works in life with us"
South Newton Elementary School
"I wanted to thank you for such a great presentation last Thursday.
The students & teachers of South Newton Elementary were thrilled &
entertained by your Professor Steve's Amazing Air Show. It is nice to have such a
program that can come to our school & teach & entertain at the same time.
You have excited many of our students about science, which is wonderful since our Science
Fair is just a few weeks away.
A fourth grade teacher commented on your program. She said that you really knew how
to work the audience; you could get the students all fired up & bring them back down
again. She also made reference to your ability to present, that your repetition of
ideas to be learned was great. Also, having the students participate with answering
questions & being involved in the show make it all the better & memorable for
them. Several students have told me what a good time they had at your program.
I have even been able to reference back to your program while teaching in class.
I appreciate the time & energy that you have put into your programs. We enjoyed
you just as much this time as the last time you came to visit us. I look forward to
more programs in the future."
Hanley International Academy
"Professor Steve, Thanks for your wonderful presentation!
Both of our schools were "Blown away." The first thing that our kids told
their parents when they came to pick them up was, "You should've seen what we
saw today" & then they told them of your program. When this happens you
know that you've hit a homerun. Thanks for making a great impression on
the minds of our students."
Traders Point Christian Church
"We have had Professor Steve as a part of our
Summer Funday program for the last three years. Each & every year his
presentations leave us amazed, excited & with a deeper, more profound love &
appreciation of our Heavenly Father.
Professor Steve is not only professional in
his presentation, exciting & engaging for the kids, but he is (& I love this
about him most) unapologetically Christian. He stands up for the Word of
God! As he says each year "I believe science proves the existence of a
Creator & shows the Bible to be true." Whether he is shooting a soda
fountain 20 feet in the air, making a fireball appear out of nowhere or filling
the room with lights & lasers, his goal is the same - to bring appreciation,
understanding & glory to our Heavenly Father.
Professor Steve also understands the budget
constraints of the local body of believers. He works within your budget to
make your event, VBS, Sunday program or evangelistic outreach truly memorable &
fun! I have kids every year ask, "When is Professor Steve coming back?"
I am proud to have him back time & time again."
Plum Creek Christian Church
"Wow! I just had both Waldo & Professor Steve programs at
Mahoning Valley Christian Service Camp & they (he) was fantastic! The kids loved
all the cool stuff you see in a Waldo program, plus all the great science stuff you see
from Professor Steve. Five stars!"
