About Pete and Chris Amusements (A Brief Resume)

Who We Are…  
We are Pete and Chris Amusements, New England’s ONLY 2-Man Kid’s Comedy Magic Show! We give an ULTRA high-energy performance that capture’s kid’s attention, and doesn’t let go!  We would love to bring our unique blend of kids comedy and magic to your guests!  We’ve been doing shows regularly for the New York Public Library system and their 92 branches since summer of 2015.  We’ve done shows themed to superheroes, Halloween, other holidays, and even magic lessons and magic from around the world.  We’d like to do the same for you!  And, of course, it’s ALL family friendly!

Where We’ve Performed…  
We have headlined several Kidsfests in CT, performed at resorts, theaters, festivals, and the like all throughout the US! We have been regular entertainers for the town of  Naugatuck and Harwinton, CT, New York Public Library system, and the Lodges at Cresthaven in Lake George, New York.

Kid’s Comedy Slapstick Magic Show
What Our Magic Show Involves… 
We have headlined several Kidsfests in CT, performed at resorts, theaters, festivals, and the like As mentioned before, we perform a frenetic 2-Man kids comedy show that will basically have us, Presto Pete and Incredulous Chris, perform as, more or less, human cartoon characters.  We take a lot of inspiration from the slapstick comics of the past, like the Three Stooges and Charlie Chaplin. Add in the fun magic and the copious amounts of audience participation, and you have a show that does the impossible… keep most kids interested for the whole show! 

Equipment? We need next to NO extra equipment.  We carry pretty much everything that we need for a great show.  Just an accessible power outlet, if our sound equipment is necessary.  Some specialty shows (like some Halloween and Christmas shows) may use animatronics and therefore will absolutely need power.
