Mr Gravel

Mr Gravel seeks to engage people in a gentle, whimsical manner.


His rudimentary juggling skills complement his talents in balloon modelling, and he has a capacity to engage and surprise with a range of puppets.

Mr Gravel is available to entertain at parties and such events, and is often found on public occasions such as the Eaglehawk Dahlia and Arts Festival, the Bendigo Easter Festival, and at Australia day events in Strathfieldsaye and at Bendigo.


He can be found in company with friends from

UC Clownz, a loose knit group of clowns from Uniting Churches across Bendigo.


For community events, Mr Gravel mostly works for free.


For private events his services can be purchased for:

1 hr.                   $130

1.5 hrs                $180

2 hrs                  $225

As required by Victorian Law, Ken has a current Working With Children Check


Mr Gravel is currently unavailable, since taking up residence in remote Central Australia.
