He did such a great job of engaging the kids and including them in the show. His dialogue was geared toward the children, but the adults really got a kick out of it too! He even remembered the kids' names and referred to them personally to make them feel important. He was able to read individual personalities of the kids in the audience after only a moment and use that to joke with them. His magic was perfect for an elementary audience and still entertaining for the parents. The special touch at the end were balloon animals and letting the kids pet the bunny. I got countless compliments afterward from parents who were so glad that he had come to our Winter Carnival. He was exactly what we were looking for!!!

Beth was AWESOME!! Strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a Face Painter! She arrived at the time she said, was very patient with the large group I had (ages ranged from 2-14 for kids and some adults as well). I am getting lots of compliments on her quality!

Tracy was on time and did a great job with the kids face paint. She was very patient with the kids as there were about 25 7-10yr olds excited and arguing over who was next. She was very creative with the overly creative ideas the kids brought to the table but was definitely able to deliver.

Mark was such a wonderful performer, just perfect for our annual Halloween event, The Wiggles & Giggles Halloween Bash, which is always the Thursday evening before Halloween and is held outdoors in a Chicago City Park. There were extra challenges that he had to face, such as it being outdoors on a 50 degree slightly windy day, that the children and their parents were continually arriving, and that the dogs in attendance in costumes could be a distraction, however Mark was not affected by any of this. He got the attention of the children in the crowd, had them gather at the foot of the stage for his performance, and really spoke to them in a way to keep them totally engaged and excited for his magic show. He got huge cheers from the very attentive audience, and was a real hit with our attendees. This was the first time we hired talent to entertain the kids while they waited for the Costume Parade and Contests, and we were 100% thrilled that we found Mark. I highly recommend him if you want to have a fun and engaging performer at a party for kids. We hope to see him again next year!

Everything about my experience working with InnoKreative Arts was awesome! Kristyn was so sweet for the start and responded so quick to all my questions about her services. We touched base a couple of times before the party as well. Her work is so worth what she charges and it's a great deal for such awesome work!!! We didn't get to speak a lot during my son's 2nd birthday party today but from what I saw she was great with all the kids and adults and so patient with everyone to get all their requests done. I would definitely book her again in the future!

Zack came and performed a show for our cub scout pack. Rhe kids and adults were laughing and to keep a bunch of boys that happy that's a wonderful thing. What's really cool is that it satisfied the bear requirement for the magic elective. Prompt and professional !

WOW!!! My wife and had our daughters Sweet 16 party at a hall. As we shopped for DJ's we came across the option of renting the box that included the photo booth option. We figured it would be cool. We weren't sure how the family would perceive it. Much to our surprise it was a huge success. Rather than just playing specific genras we had allowed everyone to get the chance of researching and playing songs they would enjoy. It was great! They played current songs that the teenage kids enjoyed but also Latin, Oldies, R&B, Rock, and some Blues. When our guest saw it can take pictures they we extatic. All of our guest were so impressed they want to make sure they get the info to rent it out for their next event Thanks for your time and professional service. Our party was a huge success and you guys were a part if that success. Simply the vest!! With much gratitude, The Torres family.

Magic Morgan & Liliana

I have seen Magic Morgan and Liliana MANY times and I plan to see them again. It's always that much fun! My 4 year-old and I laugh through the whole thing every time. What sets them apart is the highly visual, quick pace and high energy of the show. Yes, they are deaf performers and use some sign language, but that's hardly the attraction. There's nothing more tedious to me than the blah-blah blather that makes up most run-of-the-mill magician shows. Cheap jokes and cheap tricks. Morgan is color and energy all over the stage with self-effacing physical humor that lets the kids in on the jokes to their excitement instead of making them the butt of jokes. Morgan's joy in performing is palpable and infectious. His wife and assistant is the perfect foil, an accomplished magician herself, unlike the usual pretty faces onstage only to disappear. Morgan's show is entirely clean and appropriate, even his adult illusion performances. I've never heard a grumble in any audience; they are too busy clapping and trying to keep up with Morgan and all his doves coming out of nowhere. This show is more on par with famous dramatic acts and just seems not to have been nationally discovered yet other than by the Madison WI Overture Center where they draw 600 to capacity 3 shows in a row with folks turned away. 5 stars

I can honestly say that having Mr. Ramsey as a teacher was one of the best experiences of my life. Not only was I able to learn a lot of valuable information while in his class, he has also helped me outside of class as well. He is very supportive of what his students want to accomplish, and will help them every step of the way.

AMAZING!!!!! She is not a face painter, she is an artist. There are not many people that do the type of face painting that she does. She truly had a gift. She does some outstanding balloon art also. She quickly creates masterpieces for the kids. She also made Wonder Woman balloon candy cups for a Ladies Night event at my office. Big hit! I have used her for several of my office events. She is great with kids! I will never use anyone else!

    Chantal is FANtastic! She is one of the most talented artists that I know. Chantal is very reliable and adds so much to each of our events. I feel she is the best face painter around and continues to impress me with her skills. The crowds line up to get a chance to see her work and I've always received a positive response for her services. We love Chantal at StarEvents and look forward to working with her for many years to come.

    Jonathan Jokerstar performed at my graduation party. Before he started to performed majority of the people in the party were on their phones, or not socializing with each other. When he started to doing magic everyone was paying attention, and they were blown away by his tricks. After his time was up he still stayed 1 hour and performed for free, talked to everybody with questions, taught kids how to perform tricks they can do at home. I totally recommend him, and I look forward to hiring him again.

    About

    I perform clown and magic shows for kids and family events, church groups and preschools. The shows get kids involved in making the magic happen. For over 25 years, I have provided quality entertainment at affordable prices. Having started clowning with a guest appearance in the circus followed by 20 years of professional corporate sponsored entertainment for elementary schools and personal appearances, I will bring my kid-friendly experience and fun to your special event. Face painting is offered as an option at additional charge with shows or as a featured attraction for your young guests. My magic shows as Magic Ken are just as much silly fun with amazing surprises as a car packed with clowns. Children from the audience assist in making the real magic happen. Shows can be tailored to fit your party theme or simply be featured as a magic fun show at your event.
