Ace was AMAZING!! He had the highest level of professionalism and was the easiest part of planning my party. He kept in touch before the show and reassured me that he would be there to entertain! His skill level in magic and mind reading was unlike anything I had ever seen. It was like having a Vegas show in my home!! I will definitely hire him in the future and regardless of what kind of entertainment you are wanting, this is the guy to call! Thank you so much for making my party more than I had hoped for!!!

Pam Moody & ACTS Entertainment is the very best!! We first met Pam & her clown friends when our daughter was diagnosed with cancer & went to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for treatment. On returning home, our family threw a 'St. Jude Bike-a-Thon' fundraiser in lieu of a birthday party for our daughter. Pam heard about Elise & volunteered her services at our kid-friendly, family-oriented fundraiser. She & her friends made the party extra special & whether it was the professional but loving way she worked with us on details for the party, the happy & fun way she interacted with the kids or the amazing balloons & face painting that the clowns did, we couldn't have asked for more!! My kids love seeing Pam & her clown friends at other events around town & they are always thrilled with the face painting that they do!! Our daughter always walks away in awe & says 'Sparky is AWESOME!!' I would recommend ACTS Entertainment to anybody looking for party won't be disappointed!!

Justin did an awesome job! I'm so glad we hired him from our wedding reception. He asked us questions and really got to know our likes and dislikes. Our wedding party and guests loved him! He even dressed to match our wedding colors! Our wedding would have not been the same without him!! GREAT JOB!!

My 11 yr. old daughter loved him. She had a great party. She was nice. She was on time. She was respectful. And she went above and beyond with pictures with bubbles and when one child came late.

Hal Holbrook is the only other person I know of who does this kind of storytelling.


If you're looking for something new and exciting, you've found it. I'm a juggler, acrobat, and aerialist. This is not your everyday one-size-fits-all show. The show gets rolling inside a human-sized hamster ball. How's that for thinking outside the box? Add that to the international award-winning juggling, astounding acrobatic stunts, and high-flying aerial fabric over 25 feet in the air and you've got a show beyond compare that will be remembered long after your event, and with my portable aerial rig, the show can be set up just about anywhere. "I've never seen anything like it!" "We couldn't stop laughing." "She was the highlight of the event! Incredible!" "You are so easy to work with." These are the kinds of glowing reviews past clients have shared when their expectations were blown away after booking my show, and I'd like to bring more of this kind of excitement to your event. Let's start with a brief call wherein you can share your expectations of what you'd like. After our call, you'll receive a quote that takes into account all of the requirements for your party. P.S. To find out more about the show, be sure to watch the video on my homepage; it will knock your socks off!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a fortune teller do?

A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.
