About this pro

How does your service stand out?

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.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

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.

    We hired the Viking Lady character for a singing birthday telegram for one of our employees. She was a huge hit at the office and so much fun. The birthday song was even personalized for the recipient which was a nice touch. :)

    Great to work with in a time crunch! We had Marilyn Monroe for a birthday surprise and it was perfect!

    Definitely book All Star Showgrams!!
    All Star Showgrams was amazing to work with! They were quick, very professional, and made the process of booking very easy. We were SO THRILLED when Batman (Tom) came to our twins' superhero birthday party. Not only was he not scary in his Batman costume for an audience that ranged from infant to 9 yr old, but he was super friendly and entertaining. His costume, attitude, voice were all on point and I'd highly recommend him and this company to any family that needs a character...especially Tom for Batman. He entertained a rowdy group of 14 kids (mainly preschool age) for over 2 hours!!! Money well spent!!!

    We loved the balloon artist. He was amazing with the kids, kept families engaged and spread overall happiness throughout the event. We will certainly work with them again if we have another event in the area.

    Robin was great to work with us. We had a May The 4th Star Wars party in our office, and Robin sent us four great costumed characters. They mixed and mingled with staffed, posed for lot of photos, and entertained our team. It was a great addition to the day! Thanks Robin!

    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!

    Our Viking Opera singer was amazing. She was exactly as advertised -- very ridiculous and funny and light-hearted. All Star Showgrams was easy to communicate with and was very accommodating for special requests. She made up a ridiculous birthday song for our two birthday recipients, and entertained our office for ~15 minutes. Would definitely hire again (next time I want to embarrass a good friend)!

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Hiring a professional performer guarantees a successful party. People will remember the entertainment longer than they will remember the food. Look for a performer who has been doing this for a long time and ask for references. Speak to people who have hired the performer before and ask them if they were pleased. There are new performers who are trying to get established in the business - some are good and some are not so good. It is important to get as much information as you can about the performer. Do not worry about a difference of $20-$50 in price when it will make such a big difference in the product you get.
