Kornpop was born in the mind of a 12 year old class clown named David when his teacher saw potential in him and introduced him to a Circus clown named Popcorn.  Popcorn was his first mentor and taught him how to move from just being mischievous to being an entertainer. David took the name Kornpop in homage to his mentor, and later legally changed his first name to Kornpop.

Over the years Kornpop learned to do illusions, juggle, walk on stilts, and of course balloon art.

Kornpop has been all around the world entertaining people and sharing the gospel through use of his balloon art.
