Anna is an adored children's entertainer who has a show for just about every age, but her gentle demeanor, friendly appearance and age appropriate shows make her extra toddler friendly.
In Anna's own words: Long before finding my inner clown, I had always loved to make people laugh. I always knew that no matter what I did, I wanted to be a source of joy and sunshine to all that I met...and then one day I found it...CLOWNING, my true niche! In 1998, after graduating clown school, I made it official and “Anna Banana the Clown” was born!
As a professional children's entertainer, and being a “mommy” myself, I know that our children are the most precious people in our lives. The choices we make to celebrate their special day is vital to creating an event to remember. That is why I put my whole heart and soul into every zany performance. My goal is to ensure that the birthday child, as well as their guests, have an experience to treasure.
The entertainment options I provide have been enriched not only through hundreds of performances given each year, but through my drive and desire to inspire laughter and confidence in every child I meet (big or small).
When I face paint, there is no greater joy than to see the delight in a child's eyes as he or she looks into the mirror having been transformed into a "magical princess" or "superhero" ready to save the world!
In addition to being a member of the World Clown Association and Clowns of America International, I have also participated in numerous entertainment and face-painting classes and conventions since 1998.
"Anna Banana the face painter was excellent. My 4 year old daughter is somewhat shy and was unsure about getting her face painted but Anna warmed right up to her, made her feel so special and my daughter and her 12 friends had a blast! Anna is an excellent artist and I was amazed at how quick and efficient she was as well as made each child feel special. Thanks!"

"Anna Banana Was Terrific! The children were happy and entertained. My daughter enjoyed her show better than any other part of her 1st Birthday."
"I just wanted to let you know that Anna was spectacular at Alana's birthday/baby naming party a couple weeks ago. We got compliments the whole party from parents saying how great she is and how much fun their children were having. It was the perfect fit for our party. Thank you so much!"
