Clutch, the mascot for the NBA Houston Rockets, is available to perform and bring some of that Rockets magic to your school’s next basketball game or sporting event. For almost 2 decades Clutch has used his unique sense of humor to entertain Texans at all Rockets home games and at more than 300 events per year. Not only has this furry goofball performed at colleges, NBA games, minor league basketball games, and celebrity events all over the United States and Alaska, he has also enthralled international crowds in Canada, Mexico, China, Taiwan, Bosnia, Kosovo, England, and Russia. Silly string guns, confetti cannons, interactive fan games, hysterical skits, don’t try this at home stunts, and humorous props make Clutch the essential party crasher, all in Rockets style. Whether bouncing around in his 10-foot tall, inflated alter ego, “AIR” Clutch, or performing a slapstick sketch, Clutch never runs out of ways to make you laugh.

A game appearance package includes, but not limited to:
- A five-minute half-time show as “AIR” Clutch
- Two on court skits during quarter breaks
- Impromptu slapstick comedy in the stands throughout the game
- An on court free give-away (20 items provided) 
- A post game autograph session (100 8” x 10” pictures provided)
- Whatever else you want Clutch to do in order to make your game and his show a success

Clutch would love to come to your school and help electrify your next basketball game. For information on pricing and availability, call Dominic Davila, Mascot Coordinator, at (713) 758-7347. You can also see Clutch on his web site at rockets.com.
