The event was a surprise birthday party for approx 36 senior adults. Booking David was very easy. His price was very competitive. He responded promptly b-4 the party, allowing me to be comfortable about how everything would work during the surprise party. He arrived early, made himself comfortable and worked around the activities already in process. As a hostess, he was a dream! He freed up my time so that I could concentrate on guests that required extra attention. David encouraged group participation, which allowed the new people in the group to feel comfortable and become involved enough to meet others attending. Working with David was a wonderful experience, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an entertainer. David was the best part of the party.... right after the birthday boy!!! Special thanks to David!

Rick is an awesome entertainer and knows how to get the audience engaged. To start off, he gave me a good deal. Does an excellent work overall. Kids at my party loved his work and to further add, even the adults at my birthday party enjoyed him. I highly recommend him.

The kids had a wonderful time and we're completely entertained in the combo bounce house with slide. Face painter was awesome! Drop off and pick up were a piece of cake! They made it so easy for us. Will definitely reuse them!

The Amazing Ballantine, was just that. We had a great crowd at our party, and Toby interacted with all, weaving through the group performing mystifying feats. I would highly recommend him for any gathering that would like a handsome professional slight of hand magician. Thank you Amazing Ballatine!

I have seen Lar's stage performance and his close-up style of entertainment of going from table to table for small groups. I found both formats of Lar's performance to be absolutely captivating and thoroughly entertaining. Lar's approach to his style of Mentalism is fresh, fast paced and completely contemporary in its content. While several of his contemporaries use muddy plots that are difficult to follow and very suspect or transparent in their management of the people and things that they employ to accomplish their effects, Lar, on the other hand is a delight to watch. He engages his audience with a pay off of complete and utter amazement. I urge you to take the time to allow yourself to be taken on a very special journey by this brilliant entertainer.

I met Lars-Erik Robinson at an event in the fall of 2010. We were neighboring vendors for a full day, and had a chance to engage in conversation while I observed him entertaining and drawing caricatures of a wide range of people and their pets. We found a lot of common ground during our first meeting, and intended to collaborate and remain close through social media and in-person. Although our two careers keep us very busy, we finally collaborated on a major project, July 2011 when I assisted Lars with his new LarsERArts logo and his LarsERArts.com website. It was a true synergistic effort as Lars and I both had a lot to offer, and he is open to communication and the ideas of others. Lars definitely was able to present the goals of the project, and had enough brilliant artwork to really make the site amazing. He was very appreciative of my assistance and is a courteous and perfect compliment to me and my way of working. I have seen Lars grow as an artist with each quick sketch, mural, or extended illustration. As a person involved in the arts my entire life, with a BA in Fine Arts and history of working with professional artists - I have never seen the ability that this man has. His sense of awareness and technique has no limit. Many others have technique, and can draw/paint - but Lars has the best of both worlds - he can SEE. Lars' observation of faces and personality is legendary and thoroughly engaging to see live. I know that I met Lars on the cusp of National recognition and an amazing career. Every element is right about this man. He's on the right track, making calculated moves and working with great business sense and amazing talent. It is my desire that this recommendation will reach the National or international community who will view his portfolio and bring his artwork to a larger audience. His dedication to his craft and sacrifices of sleep, serenity, and an easy lifestyle are observable and commendable. I am so happy to have Lars as a friend, client, and business collaborator - as I plan to involve him in my own design projects. He is a great person who really shines in one-on one interaction, and with a large crowd. I highly recommend any interaction with Lars - whether it be a twitter or social media friendship, a studio portrait, art lessons, hiring him to draw caricatures at your next business or social event, a mural in your restaurant, or just a quick meeting and sketch at Pier 60 in Clearwater or the Pier in St. Petersburg, FL. Lars is great at updating his @LarsERArts.com twitter account and calendar at http://www.LareERArts.com - so you can find him in Tampa Bay and watch his brand of ArtTainment. Once you meet Lars, you will see that his talent and spirit are unmatched, and that his love for family, friends, and his other interests have true passion and sincerity.

The decor that this man does is simply breathtaking. He can do literally anything with balloons. My husband tried and tried to stump the poor balloon artist, but Awesome Austin can twist absolutely anything! He was clean, punctual, very personable and good with kids. I loved seeing his decor. He made very precise, clean, but still artsy looking arches. His sculptures were colorful and whimsical, and the kids just went crazy at the balloon drop! Awesome Austin made my son's birthday party into an incredible family memory. I would absolutely recommend him.

As far as giving a fair review for Sketch Monkey Entertainment, I simply can't. A 5 star rating isn't a great enough measure. As an artist, Justin delivered above my expectation. His caricatures were on point (an over exaggerated point but that's the point) for all of the guests (grandparents, kids, friends, neighbors, the birthday girl and the dog) who attended my sister's 30th birthday party. His delivery was speedy yet crisp and clean... Busting out 12 drawings in less than 2 hours. Furthermore, Justin's professionalism and care for his clients was well above any expectation! I called with very short notice to ask if he would be able to do sketches for the birthday party and after Justin made some adjustments to his personal time, he was able to fulfill my spur of the moment request! Couldn't be happier. His drawings were the life of the party and a great party favor/momentum for everyone to take home! THANK YOU SKETCH MONKEY ENTERTAINMENT!!!

I hired DJ Crisolo for my wedding in 2014 and was very impressed by his professional attitude. Shortly after speaking to him he presented a track list of all songs for me to review. He was very well spoken on the mic and kept the guests well entertained. Above all, his equipment is excellent. Sound quality was crisp and clear and he didn't try to wing it. He put time and effort in preparation to entertain and my wife and I both appreciate that very much. Thanks CJ.

About

What makes me different is that I am the YES man. THE WORD "no" is not in my vocabulary. " you cannot tell me what to do" is a phrase which I do not utter. you are a director and I am your actor. you have all the control. that's the difference. that is what separates myself from other MC's. I can be very creative or you can tell me precisely what you need from me and I will follow that blueprint until all the T's are crossed and all the I's are dotted. I am your Yes Man.
