Meet Heather Atles of Babaloons and Toons Singing Telegrams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Heather Atles.

Heather, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Babaloons and Toons Singing telegrams was founded in San Francisco over 20 years ago by an Opera Singer and a Comedian. We have expanded to include cities across the country, most notably, Los Angeles. We originally started serving the LA area when one of our top performers moved to the area to pursue his music career. He has since done very well for himself with several songs appearing on hit TV shows.

LA was a natural fit for us, given the number of creative people, and the number of people who would want to add a little pizazz to their special occasions.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Is any business endeavor, especially one in the entertainment industry every a smooth road? We’ve been very fortunate in that we’ve always attracted incredibly talented performers to work with. The biggest struggles we have faced are with the general economy. Singing Telegrams are great for special occasions when people feel like adding a memorable twist to their events. In times of economic hardship, people aren’t celebrating as much, and when they do, it’s in a more conservative manner.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Babaloons and Toons is the premiere Singing Telegram company in Los Angeles and nationwide. Make your event spectacular by sending Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Officer Crankshaft, Nurse Ophelia Pain, or any of our dozens of characters, celebrity impersonators, and party entertainers. Our singing telegrams do more than just a quick song, you get a whole professional, interactive comedy act. Balloon and flower deliveries by our performers can also be arranged.

All of our performers are incredibly talented and include Broadway actors, professional opera singers, and film/tv actors. We always go the extra mile to make sure that our clients’ special occasions have memories that last a lifetime.

What were you like growing up?
I was always a performer! When I was little, I would gather kids in the neighborhood to put on plays and musicals in my backyard. I have always loved entertaining people. I have been blessed with a quick wit, so I was always good at humorous banter and playing off the crowd.

I also love travel and spent a lot of my youth exploring other countries.


  • We have dozens of characters available starting at $209

    I agree that singing telegrams are great for special occasions. That would make a difference for me. It would also make the occasion memorable.
