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.

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!!

Vallene did great work on our Halloween makeup, and we received so many compliments. It was much faster than anything I could have done myself and it washed off very easy with just water. Highly recommend.

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!

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. ?

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

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.
