Houlihan is our main character and one of Colorado Springs, top Children's Entertainers. As you would expect from his title, "The Animal Man", Houlihan loves animals. His magic shows are all themed around animals. In most shows he produces a live animal. But whatever creature he has, be it a live animal, a puppet, or a story about animals, the kids will love it. He has a special rapport with kids, partly because of the animals, but even without animals, Kids Love Houlihan! Look at the "Words from the Experts" section on this website for some excerpts from actual letters from kids who have seen Houlihan perform.
