    Linda is a jewel. She even pitched in and covered a kid zone table when a volunteer needed a lunch break. The children loved her swords and dogs!!!

    Talent Today Entertainment was an absolute pleasure to work with! The children at my daughter's party loved the magician and balloon artist . Even the adults in attendance enjoyed the show. I look forward to working with them for other events that I put to together.

    Linda was amazing! She arrived early and was dressed as a french painter for my sons 6th birthday which was a painting party! She did more than just painting and balloon twisting; she took charge and entertained the kiddos as they arrived; really took the pressure off having to entertain the kids in the awkward phase when not every has arrived yet. She sang songs and really made my son feel special. She stays in character the entire time; my son even asked if she will be flying back to Paris later that day! I would definitely hire her again; she is so professional and a lovely lady. Thank you so much for making my sons day even more special!

    So much fun!
    Linda really got the children at our son's birthday party excited and they were very entertained. Many parents complimented her face painting skills. They were so impressed. Our 2 year old son loves the bunny doll she gave him. We really appreciated how she got the group together for a large group photo. That will be a wonderful memory in the years to come. Her joining us for 90 minutes was a big hit for sure!

    Spiderman
    We had Spiderman come for my son's 4th birthday party. He was great! Some of the kids (including my son) were a little shy at first but he made them feel comfortable and the kids had a blast.

    Great Entertainment and Customer Service!
    Linda is a pleasure to speak to and work with. Linda went above and beyond to ensure my party had great entertainment. Lincoln, the magician, did a great job. His tricks were not amateur; they were fun for kids and adults.

    They were right on time. Performed and provided exactly what she told me she would and did an excellent job of it. She captured the attention of 15-20 6 years olds and a few smaller children within minuted and kept the energy level up with her singing dancing. She was an excellent minnie mouse and so easy to work with!

    Linda Norris is such a delight and very professional. She runs a top notch entertainment company which I feel offers the best performers and talent in the area. For over 2 years I have enjoyed her entertainment at many community events and have also seen her in action as very energetic and engaging children's performer. I would highly recommend her company for any of your entertainment needs.
