About the Show

Called “simply amazing” by WGN-TV, the Big Balloon Show is a theatrical balloon stage show featuring magic, comedy and Smarty’s award-winning, eye popping balloon props.

Inspired by classic vaudeville, this innovative “all-ages” production is unlike any other show in Chicago – or anywhere else!

Smarty Pants and his wife Miss Dena have presented the Big Balloon Show since 2006!

The Big Balloon Show has been seen at libraries, community centers, park districts, private parties and even as a featured act at the Taste of Chicago!

“Your show was the big hit of the Taste of Chicago!”
– Ivy Hall, Mayor’s Office of Special Events

“Exuberant fun – the show promised giant balloons and giant fun – and it delivered!”
– Chicago Reader, show review
