The first thing about Chris Christopher Entertainment is his professionalism. From our first call we felt very comfortable with his knowledge and how he conducted himself in laying out the reception. He worked with everything we wanted to do and made appropriate suggestions when necessary. He is very easy to work with and will not guide you in the wrong direction. He is very punctual and made sure to maintain communication through the entire set up to make sure that everything was correct. The value is something that really stands out. For a very affordable price you can expect a very high quality performance. One of the best attributes of Chris is his ability to get the crowd excited and maintain that excitement throughout as well as getting EVERYONE (even the grandmas and grandpas) on the dance floor and keeping them there until the end of the party. He kept things going in a timely manner and kept us on schedule. Overall, we couldn't have found a better DJ/Emcee for our wedding. Thank you Chris for an insanely fun and entertaining party!!!

Steve was great to work with and provided better service then I ever expected! He spent a lot of time going over all the details with us. We used his DJ/emcee service as well as photo booth for our wedding. The photo booth was a hugh hit and he kept the dance floor packed. I would highly recommend him! I only wish we had know he provides wedding planning services as well. I would have hired him to do that too! Thanks again Steve for a great evening and all the help! Amber and Chris

Armando Barela was the DJ for our 50th Anniversary Party in 2013 and we were so very happy with him. He was extremely professional, on time, had so much music to accomdate you. He had top of the line equipment and was a pleasure working with. I would work with him again and I would recommend him to anyone for any type of party.

Michael was a pleasure to work with. The services he provided were top notch and he played all of the music we asked. He even had some requests at the event that he was able to facilitate. He is also very funny and had many of us laughing with his Emcee sense of humor. He arrived early and made sure that everything was in place for the event. Our wedding was absolutely amazing thanks to his contribution. I hope I never get married again but if I do I would hire Michael In a heart beat. He is a fantastic person to work with, has a great attitude and we are happy that we choose CO & Play for our wedding. I will recommend him for any other events that come my way.

Jon was awesome! He was very professional, quick to respond to any questions, and made me feel at ease putting my wedding entertainment in his hands. He was a great emcee and had all sorts of lights, a fog machine, and music videos to get the party started. I would highly recommend him!

We wanted Austin Powers at our party at Omnia Nightclub in San Diego and Jason exceeded our expectations. He was our emcee and roamed the crowd of 2000 where people took many photos with him. He was fabulous and the people loved him! His presence added to our 70's disco themed event and he owned his character. He had people laughing and helped to create memories to last a lifetime. He is punctual and knows exactly what to do and say to stir up excitement! He was a blast and his character added to our Disco Inferno at Studio 454 party. We had several impersonators from that era but Jason as Austin Powers brought the crowd endless laughter with his comedy.

From beginning to end, I was ecstatic! I'm beyond happy with Abi's skills and my husband and I could not have asked for a better D.J. or emcee to work our reception! He was knowledgeable, so helpful, and very accommodating. The price was phenomenal as well, the best we saw! His experience made him well rounded and very flexible, PLEASE HIRE HIM.

    We were referred to Alex by my coworker, my coworker's brother was our videographer. He told me to book him and assured me our wedding would be so much fun and it was! Alex asked us how high his energy level should be from a scale of 1-5 and we put 5. He was most definitely higher than a 5! Firstly he was a great emcee, making sure every transition starting from introducing the bridal party to cutting the cake went smoothly and timely. We had a wedding playlist and he played our favorite songs to keep the party going until midnight! He started the conga line & the line dances. The majority of our guests were on the dance floor and stayed there! We've received many compliments from family and friends that our wedding was the best one they've been to & Alex played a big part in making that happen. My sister, cousin, and my cousin's friends booked him after the fun they had at our wedding. Thanks Alex for making our wedding a memorable one! -Michelle and Mark :)

    Leonard Patterson exceeds all expectations as an emcee/host of events. He has served as the emcee for numerous events for our company including concerts, performance competitions and special events. He takes the time to understand the event in advance to truly embrace and promote the essence or purpose of the event. This preparation and attention to detail allows him to present flawlessly and with an unparalleled professionalism. His clear speaking voice, strong sense of the audience needs and adding in an appropriate amount of humor make him an obvious choice for your special event.

    I witnessed his craft at a few weddings. And I have been an entertainer myself for 20 years now. Have seen the mediocre and awful EmCees. All I can say is...God given talent. Smooth. Charismatic. Engaging. Dance fused with fun games. And bilingual in Spanish and English with no accent in either. There really is no one like Emcee Emi. Whether it be a Mitzvah, Wedding or corporate event you need him at your event. Game changer.

      Paragon Productions did a great job at DJing and providing Emcee at our wedding. Everything from the first meeting to the day of the wedding went great and stress free. They were available at all times for questions and necessary changes, on our part. Our day turned out amazing and I would recommend them to anyone. They also have an awesome photo booth package.

        What a great emcee and comic, couldn't have found anyone better. If your looking for a professional you've found him I would recommend him to anyone looking for a comedian or an emcee. My event was a great experience and was wonderful. Shelley Morgan

        Rich and his team were at our 8/9/14 wedding. Rich was outstanding as the emcee at the beginning of our reception, full of energy and got the party started. He had to leave shortly after our entry for another wedding (which, granted, he had mentioned might be a possibility depending on how the weekend booked up) and left us in the hands of one of his team members. This guy did a good job as DJ, but didn't have the personality we were hoping for to keep the party upbeat. He also neglected to have the Mother/Son dance song so we had to play it from a phone. It all worked out well, though. They were prompt, set-up well and stayed until the very end of the party! Would highly recommend.
