I called FACES because I was looking for a clown and balloon artist for my niece's birthday party. Ed was very passionate with his craft and you can sense that because he was really good with what he was doing. There was actually a snowstorm on the day of the party and we have to change our venue a day before...and I am so thankful Ed showed up on my venue even if its on a short notice. I would highly recommend this guy!!!

Mimi did face painting and balloons at our daughter's birthday party. She arrived early, was very engaging with the kids, dealt uncomplainingly with the craziness of our event (a carnival with two dozen kids, moved indoors for the weather), and her artwork was extraordinary. The kids loved her and parents were raving at pick-up.

Mimi was awesome! She worked really with our students and kept a huge smile on her face the entire time! I will definitely be using her services again soon. Almost forgot she dressed up like one of Santa's elves for how Winter Wonderland jam, it was amazing!

Ms. Knotts aka Bon Bon the Clown is the BEST. It was a pleasure to work with her! from my initial inquiry online to the day of the event. I emailed and she got back to me immediately, plus. We agreed I was going to hire her and after that we became friends. She is very professional. She was at the venue way ahead of time and prepared everything before the guests arrived. By the time the kids arrived, she was ready to jump on the task. I was afraid we were running behind time but she accommodated our tardiness without complain. My daughter had an awesome time and danced with Mickey from the beginning to the end. The other kids had a great time too. She is also very flexible. I had a last minute request to incorporate Minnie and she gladly accepted to perform both, without a question. I would strongly recommend her and will definitely hire her again if an opportunity arises. You will never regret having her at your PARTY!

Bon bon the clown was off the chain. We hired her for an event that had over 300 kids and she delighted every single one of them. Hire her for your next event!

We hired Spiderman and Princess Belle for a joint birthday party. Belle was AWESOME! She was totally engaged with the little girls -- story time, singing and face painting & dancing all very in character as what you would expect of a "Disney Princess". She answered questions, some complex and has studied her character so well she even speaks French! Spiderman was just ok to be honest. The guy playing Spiderman is a nice young man with a pleasant personality; but in character he left much to be desired. We had the two groups of kids (boys and girls) split during the character time; while Belle kept the girls engaged for 45 minutes until time to sing Happy Birthday Spiderman really spent only about 20 minutes with the boys. He had a makeshift obstacle course that was not very well put together, they boys were quickly bored with it. He gave them each a Spiderman tattoo, made them a balloon sword and then -- that was it. He did not keep them engaged as I had expected. I don't mind that he doesn't do flips and tricks, but I really expected him to have a LOT more energy and excitement to wow the boys. That just didn't happen. I kept going back and forth between the two groups and while Belle was actively engaged with the little girls (they were enamored with her) Spiderman was just -- well, "meh". Once the allure of his costume wore off there was nothing else there to keep the boys entertained and that was disappointing. I would definitely recommend Imagine Entertainers, Paula was AWESOME in the planning process -- I just would not recommend the young man that played Spiderman if you have a group of active little boys.

Excellent communication and customer service. The costumed character Mickey Mouse arrived on time and was an absolute hit!! He paid extra attention to the birthday boy and at the same time entertained not only the kids but the adults as well. I will definitely use this company again.

Michael is a member of Kapitol Klowns Assn of Maryland, which is an organization comprised of entertainers for the Meca of D.C, Virginia and Maryland. Michael is an excellent balloon artist, face painter and magician. The children are especially crazy about Michael (ZigZag's) balloons! What a wonderful entertainer!

Michael is the complete clown! He is funny, witty, and polite. He works well with all ages and especially well with children! He has the entire clown repertoire of funny jokes, balloon tying, face painting, and magic tricks. As an added bonus, he also has a very cute and cuddly bunny that goes by the name of Ms. Jasmine.

Zig Zag the Clown was awesome! Not only did he do excellent face painting, but he gave my church event an added bonus by putting on a magic show for the children (and young-at-heart). Everyone enjoyed themselves, immensely! Thank you for making our Community Day that much more phenomenal!

Mandy performed at my daughter's 3rd and 4th birthdays (Jan 2014 and 2015) in Reston, VA. She was so good that we had to bring her back by popular demand! :) Both times she had the kids so entertained with balloons, tricks, dancing and truly a great show! The kids were ages 3-8 and she managed the varying ages really well. They had them laughing and completely engaged! Mandy is also very professional and easy to deal with. She kept in regular contact, reconfirmed couple of days below the party, and showed up early to set up. I would highly recommend Mandy to anyone looking for a great children's entertainer!! She is wonderful! -Amina

We used Mandy for our public library customer appreciation day. She was fantastic - very interactive, fun for kids and adults, and a great variety of tricks and treats to entertain. She went above and beyond with her nonstop 3 hour performance. Mandy is easy to work with and will do anything she can to make the event successful. Highly recommend!!!

We used Clown Town Entertainment for our annual community wide event - we had over 400 people at the event. Clown Town was prompt that morning to set up everything (moonbounces, concessions, generators) and provided support via phone if we had any questions during the event. They were very professional and pleasant and everything is in great shape. They were prompt in arriving to break everything down (we were all ready to go home after a long day!). I would highly recommend to their services to anyone.

I'm an event planner in the DC area. I was contacted last minute by a client who wanted to include face painting to their event 2 days, YES 2 DAYS, before the event. Charles responded in a timely fashion, worked with their budget and not only did he paint faces, he included balloon twisting into the price he gave us. I will definitely be adding C & C Entertainment to my Rolodex of vendors and referring him to my clients. GREAT JOB COACH the CLOWN‼️‼️‼️
