Denise was AMAZING! She was hired short notice because my previous entertainer cancelled. Her work is amazing. The kids were very comfortable with her and her assistant. They were both professional yet playful with the children. I will defianatley be using them again!

David and the other 2 artists were AMAZING!! They were so professional and handled the constant flow of people they had going through the lines with ease. I will definitely recommend David and his services to everyone I know. 100% the BEST part of our picnic. Every person that has came to me this morning to talk about the keeps telling me how much they loved the caricatures! Thanks again David for helping to make our picnic a success!

I hired LaBak the musician to entertain at my daughter's 8 th birthday party. First of all he was very easy to work with. Before the event, when I had questions he always got back to me very promptly. The day of the event he arrived on time and was very flexible with his schedule when one of the other entertainers arrived late, he accomadated my situation and started his show much later than we had discussed. Very impressed. He worked with me and put me at ease. My guests love that he went around to everyone and performed some magic before starting his main show for the kids. I absolutely loved that he made my daughter the focal point of some of his tricks. She loved it. She ended up with a Giant $100 bill a $10 bill and a giant playing card with "Happy Birthday and her name on it" All in all, the show was great and it definitely entertained everyone. One of my daughter's friends said she wanted a magician at her next birthday party. I was left very happy with LaBak and his magic show.

Lou Serrano is awesome!! I hired him for my Mom's 80th Birthday Party. We had 40 - 45 people at our home. Lou was very personable, and kept in touch with me by phone during the booking process (which was extremely easy), and on the day of the party. When he arrived, he was very polite, and mingled with the guests, who didn't realize he was a magician, until he surprised them with his strolling magic. He is excellent in slight-of-hand, and really delighted our guests. After a brief break, and setting up an area indoors, Lou performed a stage show that was absolutely amazing. My father had been an amateur magician, and Lou added an illusion into the show that my dad used to do, which made it very special. My guests are still talking about what a wonderful party it was. The magic really made the day. Lou is a very talented magician, and very professional. He's just a really nice guy. Not full of himself, like some entertainers can be. He is a member of the Magic Castle. and the show he performed was first class. You will NOT be disappointed if you hire him for your event!!

I really could not be happier with the True Virtue team. They arrived on time with a great attitude and ended up leaving us some supplies that would help remove the body paint. They both worked on three different models for a body paint photo-shoot and finished right on time. I will definitely be booking them again and would recommend them for anyone wanting talented and professional make-up artists.

David entertained our formal dinner party with his stand-up illusions. He was punctual, clean, professional, extremely easy and fun to work with, and the quality of his illusions was excellent! Our friends were impressed by his resume when I introduced him (Las Vegas, celebrities, brand-name shows, etc. His show was clean, funny, interactive, and got every one of my guests involved, to their delight. I have gotten many thank yous from our friends who thoroughly enjoyed the evening and said it was one of the best dinner parties they've attended. David was a huge part of the reason it was so memorable. DEFINITELY hire him!

Zach came to my husband's Surprise 40th Birthday Party. I know my husband is a fan of magicians, so I was hoping for one who would impress my husband. Zach was there for the duration of the party as a roaming magician. He was very friendly and engaged the guests in a humorous way. He was amazing at learning and remembering the names of the guests, even though there were at least 60 people who watched him perform his magic throughout the time. Everyone I spoke to was incredibly impressed with his magic skills. He really added to the fun of the party and is certainly worth the money we paid! Looking forward to see him perform at The Magic Castle sometime.

Mix together sheer talent and star quality with kindness and you have Jonathan Molo himself. He is a standout entertainer who is generous in spirit. He was the highlight of my booth at a huge community event—he mesmerized children and adults alike. I plan to hire him for future events because he is downright exceptional. I offer my highest recommendation.

I had Marty perform for my Fellowship in a restaurant, and he did a wonderful job, mostly with magic at a distance. I then had my personal birthday party at my home and again invited Marty to provide the entertainment; his mostly close-up magic was very good. Both shows lasted about 45 minutes. I highly recommend Marty as a magician. He has a very pleasant style and his tricks were impressive.

My husband and I were planning a business party for about 300 people and wanted to make it special by having some "strolling" entertainers. Neither of us knew much about magicians but were really put at ease by Kristoff's responsive interaction and help. The night was so much fun and Kristoff was a big part of the night's success. He spent time before the party getting to know something about who would be in attendance and planning special tricks for specific groups of people...what a blast! Will definitely hire him again! His wife coming along for photo taking and guest interaction was a pleasant bonus! Worth every penny!

I hired Andy for my wedding reception this past weekend. He was masterful. Not only did Andy perform incredible one on one magic during the cocktail hour (which amazed my guests), but he later returned to amaze everyone with a 45 minute show to close the event. Everyone was talking about Andy afterward - both the adults and the children. He perfectly mixed humor with astonishing illusions. Andy was super professional to deal with and receptive to our specific requests. His magic is unbelievable and made our wedding something special that our guests will never forget. I highly recommend using Andy for your next event. You will not be disappointed.

Smiling From Ear To Ear . . . That's what I want my clients and audiences to experience when I book someone to entertain them, and I got that and more with Hillel a.k.a. Mr. Balloon Man! He is easy to work with, very (I mean "very") accommodating, and thoroughly understands the audience experience. I've had the great pleasure of working with Hillel in a variety of settings, from a private social event all the way up to a large business conference. My clients are still talking about him. Simply, he is unforgettable. I can't recommend Hillel enough. - Scott Grossberg
