Timothy James did a great job entertaining the guests for my husband's 40th surprise birthday party. He was easy to get a hold of, punctual, and did a great job of involving the guests. Everyone was impressed with his tricks. Would recommend him and use him again if needed.

About

Andy Amyx is known around the world for his dazzling and thrilling style of magic and illusions. His peers, such as Lance Burton, applaud his enhanced style and technique which has fascinated many for years. His exceptional reputation in the magic industry has enabled his success. Andy's first exposure to magic was in 1978, when his uncle, an original "Bozo The Clown," gave him a deck of playing cards. Andy was intrigued with what he could do with only a deck of cards. He became fascinated with magic, and he was eager to learn more. After many years of performing for family, friends, schools, and local organizations, Andy began studying at the Chavez College of Magic in La Verne, California. There, he achieved the Chavez Certificate of Prestidigitation. Andy continued to perfect his magic by creating his own style of music, manipulation, and original costume. Soon, he received his first award in magic from the International Brotherhood of Magicians. He took first place for his incredible stage act. This led to other awards, such as First Place at the Society of American Magicians for having the Best Manipulation Act, and in later, he was asked to perform at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, California. Since his first performance at the Magic Castle, Andy has become one of the few favorites who regularly perform there. Eventually, he was chosen for a six-month contract at the Musgi Resorts in Japan. Since then, Andy has returned to perform in Japan on numerous other occasions. In addition to Andy's international appearances, he has had the pleasure of performing in Guam, The Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City, Wizards in Universal City, Bally's in Las Vegas, and The Riviera in Las Vegas. Andy has performed for private events held by Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, the cast of "That 70's Show," and many others. Andy's talents have also been used for television commercials, such as for Kia and Infiniti Car Corporation. Andy has also been a consultant for several music videos, most recently two videos for Madonna. His creative influences and training of doves and pigeons were used to improve and enhance the effects of the videos. In addition to his ability to perform, Andy is also an instructor and renowned lecturer. Andy is a frequent instructor at the Chavez College of Magic, and he continues to teach private sessions with many students of magic outside of the program. Andy is proud to admit that several of his students have won numerous awards in different magic competitions around the world. Andy has also produced teaching and instructional videos and products for magicians, which are distributed worldwide. Andy's future plans include continuing to entertain audiences around the world. His goals as a performer are to eventually set sail, creating a contemporary spin on classic magic, for those traveling by sea. Andy sums it up by saying: "I love being an entertainer; you never know the joy of being able to bring a smile to a stranger's face."

About

We have been in business for 31 years. We are local and only serve the San Francisco Bay Area, so we care about our reputation. We only work with professional performers who do this and only this for their living. We also understand the distances between locations here, and if you hire someone through a national company, they might not realize, for instance, that one area of San Jose can be more than a half hour away from another area of San Jose (or the same with San Francisco). We have customers who have come back to us year after year because they are always satisfied with our professionalism and quality. I am a comedian and a singer. I was raised by a father who was a professional magician and worked the Catskill Mountains. I come from a show business background. I am always grateful for the gifts I have been given, and the most wonderful moments in my life have been when I could share those gifts and entertain people. I have been told over and over that I was the catalyst that started the party going - it started to be fun after I got everyone laughing and having a good time. I live for people to have a good time, and knowing that I can use my gifts to do that is something pretty wonderful.

About

I offer the following services: * As a Balloon Twister: Someone once called me "the Pied Piper of balloons." When I asked what she meant, she said that for some reason, everyone seems to be fascinated when I am twisting for the kids, even people who didn't think they were interested in balloons. Being the twister at several Bay Area farmers' markets since 2004, I've entertained thousands of children and adults with my balloon art. My art doesn't come from twisting, but from entertaining while I create my balloon sculptures. * As Santa John, The San Jose Santa: My name is Santa John. I have been a professional, real bearded Santa since 2004. I wear real boots and a professionally made custom Santa suit. My Santa visit starts with a big entrance, with lots of bell ringing and ho ho ho's. Then a short meet and greet for a few people before starting visits with the children. For the visit, I offer them to sit on my lap and we pose for pictures. After the pictures, I spend some time with each child asking if they are having a good time, have they been good this year. I may ask them to tell me what good things they done. Then I ask them if there is anything special they would like for Christmas. I repeat it back loud enough so that the parent can hear what was request. If candy canes or gifts are provided, I hand one to the child and go onto the next child. After I have visited with the children I am available for family pictures. After any group pictures, I can read "T'was The Night Before Christmas" and as the book reached the end with the storybook Santa proclaiming "Merry Christmas to All and to All a good night", I stand up and repeat the line and exit to head back to the north pole. * As a Magician: I love giving children laughter and a sense of wonder. My comedy magic allows me to do both.

About

We offer kids birthday party entertainers, performing face painting, twisting balloons, magic show, interactive games and TV characters. Face painting: Kids can choose from a face painting "menu". Have your camera ready to capture your son transformed into "bat dude", or your daughter into a sparkly flower princess! Or they can choose a design for their arm or hand. We use professional, high quality, non-toxic face paints that dry fast and wash off easily with soap and water. Magic show: Our interactive magic show is age appropriate. When the show begins, we are getting ready to do the magic. This is a fast paced, hilarious show that has the kids laughing out loud and screaming for more. The kids are encouraged to come up and help with the magic throughout. The show is a great ice breaker for kids who tend to be shy. Twisting balloons: Planning a birthday party? Wouldn't it feel great to save time and money, and make the occasion a rousing success? Now, you can do just that! Live entertainment by a friendly clown, will create just the mood for a festive atmosphere. You will feel like the star of the day when you receive compliments like: A great party! The best ever! We do wild hats, exotic animals, heart wands, elaborate pirate swords and the classic pink poodle on a leash, and turn any gathering into a party, to name a few. Interactive games: We play interactive games of your choice. The type of games would of course depend upon the age group. Children have a great time playing games and dancing games. Kids love to play with parachutes! With our colorful parachute, bean bags and music we can play a variety of different game. Not only is it fun, but playing with a parachute encourages children to learn teamwork, motor and perceptual skills. TV characters: All your guests have arrived, and the doorbell rings once more. You send the birthday boy/girl to find out who it is, and are ready with the camera to capture the joyful smile on their face when they find that their very favorite character has come to visit them on their birthday! Our characters do much more than just smile and pose for photos. During the show, your child and their friends will indulge in all kinds of games designed to entertain specifically for their average age range. This includes various games, songs, interactive activities and cutting the cake at the end of the show.

About

I perform two shows: a comedy hypnosis show and a comedy magic show. My act is clean enough for Catholic priests and nuns, and it is not naughty enough for any comedy club. I perform for high school events like all-night parties, colleges, fairs, festivals, amusement parks, corporate events of all types and occasional private parties. My show is a fast-paced performance that will make you laugh so hard that your face hurts. I like hurting people that way, but I also treat every person on my stage the same way I'd want someone to treat my 19-year-old daughter: with respect. There really is no way to describe what I do. It has to be experienced. Watching the demos on my website will help, but my show is three dimensional, and experiencing and seeing the person next to you crying from laughing is part of that experience. Contact me for a free DVD and brochure, and look at my website, or look for me on the web, YouTube, FaceBook, and Twitter. Search "Hypnotist Alan Sands".
