My name is Tony Garcia, the owner of Garcia Family Enterprises (GFE), and I am glad that you chose to visit our website. GFE Balloons, Kid Show Magic, and Ventriloquism is a small magic and ventriloquism company that was started in Athens, Georgia which is outside of Atlanta, GA. Athens is home of the University of Georgia (UGA) Bulldogs (a.k.a.The Dawgs), The B-52's, R.E.M., the double-barreled cannon, and the world-famous hot dog eatery: The Varsity!
I have been involved with magic and ventriloquism since I was about 10 years old! Edgar Bergen and Paul Winchell were my biggest influences in ventriloquism. Who couldn't love Charlie McCarthy and Jerry Mahoney? I have also had the pleasure of meeting world-famous ventriloquist Jeff Dunham (Walter, Jose Jalapeno, Peanut, Bubba J, Melvin the Super Hero, and Achmed the Terrrorist) in person!
So what do I do? I have been creating wonderful birthday party and special event memories and balloon arches/creations since 1998! I do a wide variety of entertaining that includes balloon animals, comedy kid show magic, and ventriloquism. I also do things like balloon decorations and balloon arches for Grand Openings! I even do a gospel magic show! I have performed at birthday parties, universities, schools, libraries, malls, churches, and street festivals which means that I have the experience to entertain you, your family, and friends. I am both flexible and diverse, and enjoy making my audiences laugh.
Some organizations that I am proud to be affiliated with, and be a part of are: Fellowship of Christian Magicians (FCM), a lifetime member of the International Magicians Society (IMS), the International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM), and a member of the Society of American Magicians (SAM).
I look forward to being a part of your next special event, and hope to hear from you soon!
