Stacey’s Bio

Stacey Parzik – Owner & Principal of Parties by Stacey and Clowning Around Town

Stacey Parzik was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and is a third generation Angelean as well as a graduate of Cal State University Northridge. She is the oldest of three daughters who started babysitting at the age of 12 first for her sisters and eventually for the neighborhood children. Her love for children also led her to become a summer camp counselor during her early years and then to serve as a nanny during college. During her senior year of college Stacey began honing her performance experience as “Stacey the Clown” which eventually brought about her opportunity to purchase a children’s entertainment company in 1994 that became “Parties by Stacey.” In the past several years Stacey has also taken ownership of “Clowning Around Town” and “Storybook Characters” from friends and former colleagues in the children’s entertainment business, and has also been booking singing telegrams and other celebrity and fun adult character appearances through Dramagrams (, which she acquired in 2006.

 Stacey currently lives in Woodland Hills with her husband Paul and their two sons. Although Stacey’s duties have gradually gravitated toward managing her growing businesses, she still enjoys being involved in many of her events and especially enjoys face and body painting. As her companies have grown through excellent word of mouth, she has also cultivated an expanding team of talented performers who have a true passion for creating wonderful, memorable experiences for children. She also donates time annually to the Histiocytosis fundraising walk in Burbank as well as Make-A-Wish Foundation Walk for Wishes, Mattel’s Party on the Pier and programs at her sons’ schools.

 It is Stacey’s greatest pleasure to help create smiles on the faces of joyful children through her work. Given the chance to help make your family’s event more magical, she’s sure that you’ll agree with her business motto… “you’ll smile too.”
