Jen was great. She kept the kids attention for almost 45 min with an adorable puppet show and sing-a-long. She made the birthday girl feel special with a special necklace. But two things. My daughter really wanted to show her a book and I get that wasn't part of the show but she just ignored her. I wish she would have just acknowledged it. And she gave herself a 10 min window to be late and was then ten minutes after that. So it started 20 min after I wanted it to. She did call but I think she was a bit overbooked. All in all it was great and I would do it again in a heartbeat. My daughter loved it and my friends and I thought she was one of the best performers we have seen.

Annie was very friendly and the kids enjoyed her. She has an artists syle to her graphics and the characters were nicely painted. The color on some could be more vivid. I would hire her again. She may want to include in her post that the fastest way to communicate with her is via electronic mail on Thumbtack.

DJ Tuese was a terrific DJ for our dance benefit event. He got to the location at exactly the right time, quickly set up, and was ready to confer with the multiple entertainers for our event. For a complex event like ours with 2 emcees, two dance instructors, auctions and raffles, and video slideshows, communication was critical. All our event folk worked seamlessly with DJ Tuese because he was easy going and ready to improvise when needed. We feel blessed to have had him DJ our event!

He was very entertaining. He did a wonderful job entertaining children (ages 2-11) for my son's 7 year old birthday party as well as entertaining the adults at the party. He showed up early to the party and was very professional and reasonably priced. We are very satisfied and would recommend him to anyone needing quality entertainment!

I was very pleased with Angela. Her face painting was excellent and she was great with the kids and very easy to work with. My guests commented positively on her face painting skills and a couple of the moms got her card so they could use her in the future. She would very pleasant to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She also made balloon swords for the kids.

Mary Kay was a pleasure to have at our corporate event as our Tarot Card Reader. She was on time, super friendly, and great with our guests. She communicated so clearly before the event on her services so I knew just what to expect. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Thanks Mary Kay!

I had an absolute blast on my wedding. Everyone was gushing about how memorable it is because they saw a live caricaturist at work while she drew the guest in real time. Sharon is so amazing! I booked her a month before my wedding since I decided last minute to have a caricature artist. She told me that I would need to do/have so I had an easy time coordinating with the wedding planner/venue. Very easy to work with and was very clear in our communications so she was one of the vendors I didn't have to worry about. She was very popular and probably never had a break because everyone wanted to have their caricature drawn - she was that good! I originally had her for 2.5 hours and had to extend because she was so popular. She even accommodated my guests crazy requests and my not so prompt guests who sat in last minute. Seriously, I was watching her draw one of my guests and I was in such awe of what she was doing, my husband had to remind me to eat my salad because they were about to bring the main course! She chatted my guests up and made them feel comfortable while she drew them even though we were blasting music on the other side of the room! She drew everyone with a smile! Thank you Sharon for making our wedding day an absolute perfection! We are already thinking of our next big party and the one thing my husband and I decided was to have Sharon entertain our guests with her lively caricatures!!!

My company hired a balloon artist through All Star Showgrams for our holiday party this past weekend. I could not be happier with their service! Our artist was on time, came dressed up! and was very professional. Her work was great and the few kids that attended our party loved her as well as our adult guests! Thank you All Star Showgrams for the fantastic entertainment and thank you Thumbtack for connecting us with them!

Natasia was wonderful! She worked quickly and the quality of her work was impeccable. She came dressed in theme and was great with the kids (and the adults). We are all very impressed. I was most pleased when she made us extra balloon animals and swords just in case the ones we had popped. I thought that was so thoughtful. I would definitely hire her again!

Thank you "My Once Upon a Time" for making my daughter's 1st birthday party such a success!! Belle and Superman were absolutely wonderful!! It was such a pleasure and so easy to work with Loni when I contacted them, and they arrived on time and stayed in character the whole time. They were so sweet with the kids, and really kept (all ~35 of them!) entertained and engaged :). Also, we had parents telling us that they were the best looking characters they'd seen!! Kids (and parents) were so happy and excited to have them there. The kids kept entertained with balloons, tattoos, story time and bubbles =). We're are so happy they were part of making our party a success~ we would high recommend them for everyone and look forward to working with them again for our future parties =)

Dan and his son present an engaging and entertaining event for children and adults. We chose Dan specifically because we heard that he was extremely professional, self-contained in terms of props and utilities, and unlike the usual run-of-the-mill birthday magicians (which we totally didn't want). We are pleased with our experience with him, and intend to have him back again in the future.

A great magician for all ages!I first saw David Martinez perform at a corporate off-site. He was so good that I hired him to come perform at my daughter's 9th birthday party a few weeks later. David is truly a talented magician who can captivate an audience of any age. His up-close magic skills are unreal and are sure to leave everyone with their jaws dropped. I would highly recommend David for your next eventhe's a pleasure to work with and a true entertainer.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a fortune teller do?

A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.

    I need a DJ that can run the party from the start to finish. Looking for a Chill out style house tunes to start...Gramatik is a good example. Think poolside, something to be able to have cocktails, tap your foot to, but still be able to talk to people. We like hip hop, tech house, dubstep (but not the super heavy kind), prog, electo...We're from Long Beach so any Snoop n Dre always goes over well. We love mash-ups, kaskade, deadmau5...if you're a top 40 guy, I'm not really into that. If you can't beat match, please dont respond to this. I don't want someone just dropping songs where they like, or just playing a playlist. We want a full build up to a dope dance party! Not exactly sure how many hrs...but lets just say 6p to 2a (set-up time included). If you can, give me a per hr rate. I'm not sure what venue yet, and if they have a PA. We will have some people that will want to speak briefly early on...but it'll be short n sweet.
