Perfect for Corporate Events, why not hire a Human Statue?

Human Statues are often found in popular tourist locations and will remain very still. Occasionally when someone walks by they will startle them by moving which can be rather amusing to watch.  Human Statues are a fantastic idea for corporate entertainment since they can hand out leaflets and another benefit of hiring them is that they don’t detract from other entertainment.  Click here to find a Human Statue to offer quiet entertainment that won’t take over your event.
