Aristo-Critics Image

Meet The Aristo-critics: The Marquisses Rene & Philippe Pamplemousse Du Maupassant, the twin dandies of the French aristocracy. They’ve been miraculously transported through time to grace your event with their fashionable presence. They are sincerely scandalized at how dreary haute couture has become. You can’t even find a gentleman in lace, much less a suitable wig and proper heels. And where is their makeup? How brutish! They all look like FARMERS!

This hilarious, surreal comedy duo adds vibrant colour to your event as they blast the boring fashion trends your guests are wearing, flirt with ladies and gentlemen, and highlight your fashion labels, lines and designers using humour, wit, and charm.

Watch them get your guests embroiled in their web of side-splitting gossip and intrigue. Add the British Duchess of Devonshire, a spicy aristocrat who finds it very hard sometimes to be a proper lady. The Duchess tutors your female guests on how to be ladies — and how to avoid getting caught!

Captain Kirk can beam into your event to recruit for Starfleet and congratulate your group for choosing to join the United Federation of Planets. We can also send the dashing starship captain with whichever crew members you’d like — from Mr. Spock to cultural icon Lt. Uhura.

Star Trek trivia challenges with prizes make for a great buzz during a conference mixer. All characters come with quality props complete with lights and sound FX.

Darth Vader’s Keynote Conference Speech

Ski Patrol Image

What could possibly define the Canadian west coast more perfectly than skiing and snowboarding? Since the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, when travelers think of Vancouver as a destination, they also think of the breathtaking mountains of British Columbia.

Booking our ski patrol characters is an original way to keep our world class ski and snowboard destinations top of mind at conferences, conventions, and trade shows.

They’ve dedicated their lives to the protection and physical well-being of skiers and snowboarders.  They’re so dedicated that even in a hotel ballroom, they’re all about ski safety!

They bring their hilarious first aid kits and make their rounds — checking pulses, using their stethoscopes, and wrapping up their favourite guests in swathes of tensor bandages. And when they spot the right guests, they’ll even give them indoor ski lessons — making these characters the key to smash hit photo booths and memorable photo ops throughout the event.

Add to that the Ski Patrol Snow Trivia. They inject fantastic new energy into arriving groups by quickly dividing them into two teams and presto!

If you have specific information you want highlighted, we’ll custom make our trivia game with your key information at no extra charge! They even have hilarious little prizes for the winners.

Our Ski Patrol is ready to represent!

We were very pleased that our characters — and our company — got a thumbs up from BC Living Magazine in their coverage of FlyOver Canada’s grand opening of Vancouver’s new 4D virtual flying experience attraction at Canada Place.

Captain George Vancouver
Captain George Vancouver Image

If you’re already in Vancouver, the Captain should be part of the festivities, shouldn’t he? Captain George Vancouver brought his ship, Discovery, around the Cape of Good Hope, and all the way up the Pacific Coast past California (stopping at Disneyland before his crew mutinied) and on to the Straight of Juan de Fuca.

Juan was a great friend of George’s so he didn’t mind him naming the straights after himself. And here he is. Dazzled by the beauty of the land — the mountains and the emerald green of Starbucks signs.

Captain George will mingle with your guests and make them laugh at his wonderful, slightly eccentric stories of his nautical adventures and current real estate investments in Kitsilano.

Gassy Jack
Gassy Jack Image

Introducing the proprietor of the night’s entertainment and “owner” of your venue: John “Gassy Jack” Deighton. He was the first hotel and bar owner in Vancouver in the historic area of the city, Gastown, named after this rascally capitalist.

You can stop worrying, Gassy Jack didn’t get his nickname because of an embarrassing digestive problem. “Gassy” refers to the fact that this founder of the city was known far and wide for his larger-than-life personality and his incredible tall tales — the man never stopped talking — and making his guests roar with laughter.

This roving character pays great homage to his namesake by telling riveting tall tales about the early days of this city and having the humour and wit that will make your guests fall in love with this Victorian entrepreneur. He’s best “host” of the evening you could possibly want!

Christmas spirit: Santa, Ms Claus, Elves, and more

When the mood strikes them, they might bring out the game show buzzers and play an impromptu Christmas trivia game with individual guests.

Ms Claus, decked out in her festive Christmas dress, can attend at Santa’s side to light up the room… and to keep Mr Claus out of trouble!

Any of these seasonal characters can emcee your event, mingle, engage in fun activities, and more to make your holiday event truly memorable.

Train Conductors
Train Conductors Image

The Vintage Train Conductors break the ice and engage your guests at any event.

When the arrivals subside, the Train Conductors rove your event, facilitating interaction, lightening the mood and enhancing the style of the unique venue.

The Wisselstop Brothers

Lester and Norman Wisselstop worked as train conductors in the 1800’s until a bizarre meteor storm opened a rift in time and space, and the train they were on ended up in their future — our present. What are the chances?

Lester and Norman are simple guys that just have to keep working, so until someone gives them the sack, they’ll continue to work this station! They are delighted to tell the guests hilarious stories of Vancouver’s past and their lives working for the railway. They are also fascinated by the guests’ fashion and technology — especially those tiny little cameras, since they LOVE getting their pictures taken.

Mini Trivia Game Shows

Besides chatting with the guests and posing for hilarious photo ops, Lester and Norman conduct spontaneous trivia “game shows” with groups of guests. They quickly and easily put guests in mini “teams” (men vs. women works great). Your conductor will produce a push bell and ask great trivia questions about Vancouver, the railway and historical events. These trivia question can be custom-made to suit your event perfectly.

Donald Trump
