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.

Ashley provided wonderful entertainment at our son's sixth birthday party. Boys and girls alike loved her face painting and balloon art. We had to move the party to a bowling alley at the last minute and Ashley accommodated the change and worked in a small (not ideal) space and made it work so smoothly. I'd highly recommend Ashley for any party.

Recently hired Amulya and one of her associates to be henna artists at the Diwali event in my company. Amazed by the quality of service. Amulya is super fast with her work and everyone who got the henna done was really happy with the designs they got. She was punctual, started on time and did not take any break for over 2 hours.. which was helpful since the queue was too long :) Will definitely recommend for henna services.

Connecting with Alan for our kid's first birthday event turned out to be one of the best decision. He has lot of tricks up his sleeve and keeps the guest entertained non stop. He was very accommodative with some of the events running over time. He did a walk around magic tricks and center stage entertainment. Everyone totally loved him. He's also good hearted and a very nice person to interact with.

Andy came in, presented himself nicely and was easy to get to know. He quickly assessed his needs and where he would hold his show in our home. Within minutes he was loading in, shared his set list and how we would be entertained for our daughters birthday party with his magic and illusions. After prompt set up he was ready to go. Our age group was broad and Andy had no problem catching and keeping the crowd amused and amazed for the hour. I would definitely recommend Andy Amyx for any magic entertainment.

Mary Kay Mitchell is a delightful surprise. I have never had a tarot card reading and took my husband for a date night. We both loved it. She has an enchanting way of explaining the cards and is clearly a seasoned veteran at the skill. She uses a visual map to help guide you through the process, in addition to recording the session and emailing it so you can review it again and again. Mary Kay is truly a gift. I recently hosted a birthday party and Mary Kay did readings for all the guests. She was extremely professional anda ton of fun. Each guest was amazed how “spot on” she was and loved her! The feedback was incredible. I highly recommend Mary Kay with an overwhelming gratitude of appreciation for the insight she has brought into my life.

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!

Ben did an outstanding job. We hired him to deliver a singing telegram for our colleague's birthday. We ordered a balloon and Ben picked it up on his way over. He was professional, punctual, communicative, easy to work with, and delightfully entertaining. I'd definitely hire him again.

Janice showed up ahead of time to get set up and patiently worked the whole show. She was An absolute delight to work with. She was dressed for the part in a clown like outfit that looked very whimsical and she entertained the adult children and actual children quietly all night while the show swirled on around her. Our event was a sixtieth birthday party for friends and family and Janice helped turn it from an event into a party. We look forward to hiring her again soon.
