Nick Connell is an outstanding entertainer. He knows how to quickly connect with young children over the short duration of a party to engage and excite them. He takes the time to learn their names and takes an interests in them. He also took requests and was able to make whatever the kids wanted; it was very impressive. Everyone had a wonderful time. We highly recommend him.

DawnMarie was great! We contracted with her for face-painting, balloon tying, and glitter tattoos for 2 hours. She showed up early to set up (but doesn't charge for set-up and clean-up time), she uses very high-quality face painting make-up, her balloon tying is more complex than what you typically see, and she is great with both kids and parents. I got comments from parents the entire time about her impressive artistic painting skills. The kids loved their face and arm paintings and glitter tattoos. Her intricate balloons were a total hit. She may be more expensive than some of the other entertainers out there, but this is really a situation where you get what you pay for. The quality was a cut above, she is insured, uses high-quality hypoallergenic and gluten-free make-up, and takes great pride in her work. Great experience!

He is an amazing performer!!! He really knows how to attract children attention. Every kid at our daughter's birthday party was amazed and happy to have a chance to participate in the show. We had many entertainers every year for our little one's birthday but Great Boodini so far was the best one! Definitely we going to hire him again! Very professional, punctual and he responds very quickly for any questions. He offers variety of magical tricks/ shows for small and big kids. Definitely I recommend him to anyone who wants to have great and unforgettable party!!!

The Face Painters were on-time, professional, friendly and very talented. Their designs were beautiful for boys and girls - kids and their parents loved them. We recommend them to anyone looking for easy-to-work-with face painters.

Wonderful face painter! This wasn't just a little flower on the cheek. Every child got a very special, colorful piece of art on their face or arm. She painted every child in line with something special for him/her. Every child (about 50) looked unique. One of the best face painters I have ever hired. I will hire her again.

From start to finish working with the Pocket Circus team was a wonderful experience. Gabriela was prompt, professional, and friendly with the planning and arrangements. Mr. Firu was flawless as the entertainer at my 4 year old son's birthday party. My son had an earache the day of the party and was a bit cranky at times. Mr. Firu was able to handle the situation with style and grace. By the end of the show my son was laughing and participating! All of the guests ranging in ages from 1 to 77 enjoyed themselves and had an excellent time. I highly recommend Pocket Circus for one's entertainment source!

I hired him for my twin sons 6 year old birthday party at the house two weekends ago. There were around 18 kids and 15 adults and Apollo had everyone completely engaged. He was great with the kids and had all the adults laughing out loud. He was very professional and a true entertainer. Everyone commented on how awesome he was. I am so happy I found him!!

They were really good and talented. They had trouble finding our home which caused the, to run late. The work and personalities made up for it. I would recommend them and rehire them.

Hands down the best psychic experience I have ever had. Susan is the real deal. She was the entertainment at my company holiday party and not only was she warm, easy to talk to and professional, she was spot on with all of her readings. We were blown away by her abilities. I could write the longest most glowing review of her and it would never be enough to convey the amazing experience we had with her. I plan on hiring Susan for many future events, she is incredibly gifted and a pleasure to work with.

    Fantastic Show! Out of all the entertainers we have at our facility Jovan is the one that they ask about the most. What I liked about his show was number one Michael Jackson is someone everybody can relate to, then there is this energy he has, he's also very limber and blessed with talent. Thanks again!

    We hired Val for my daughters 1st birthday party. She's just wonderful and we love her work so much. In the past I regret hirring other lower-priced face painters who didn't know how to paint well and worst of all they do not know how to interact with the kids. For me, it's very important to keep in mind how a face painter relates to the children. She's friendly, funny, clever, professional to work with, fast and incredibly talented. We love our experience with her and everyone else at the party did too. She's amazing and we love her very much. ?

    Ed was great. He was on time and the kids were just having a ball and laughing out loud. His rates are reasonable and comparable with other entertainers, but the added comedic spiel is what put it over the top!
