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.

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!!!

Brian performed at our Holiday office party and did a terrific job. He did card tricks for groups of 5-6 in a cocktail party format. He is an expert magician and good entertainer. We are still guessing "how did he do that?" Thanks Brian!!

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!!

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.

Zoltan was a true professional; he was kind, knowledgeable and used good hygiene in applying the glitter tattoos at my daughter's 7th birthday party. The tattoos were huge hit, the kids couldn't get enough of them! He never cut corners and never rushed any of the children throughout the process. In addition, his display was very user-friendly and he had tons of tattoo and glitter color choices. Zoltan was a pleasure to work with. I will definitely be using his services again.

I enthusiastically support the recommendation of Nicole Auriemma for employment as an entertainer (guitarist and vocalist) in the Chicago area. I have known Nicole Auriemma for the past year and have employed her numerous times to provide musical entertainment during our summer villa events. Nicole always showed up on time and entertained our guests on a very professional level. Nicole is a pleasure to work with and always brings a smile and positive attitude whenever she plays guitar. It is very apparent that she enjoys performing for audiences in any type of environment." Sincere and best regards, Steven T. Samson
