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.

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.

We had a great experience with Kraynork the Magician. We had a large birthday party for my son who was turning 6. He did an awesome job captivating the audience with his show and soundtrack. We told him that our son loved Harry Potter and he tweaked his show accordingly. I highly recommend him.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Colin was a fantastic entertainer! He had amazing balloon twisting skills and was able to fulfill every child's wish including a mermaid and teenage mutant ninja turtle. He was professional, on time, courteous and understood how to best serve my particular event. I couldn't have been happier with the service! Money well spent :)

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!!!

We hired Natasia for face painting this last weekend and she was a hit! The girls loved her designs and she even had matching stick on gems! She was able to move quickly through the line of girls and finished about 25+ in 2 hours. I am very happy with the Party Artists and would book them again!
