I LOVED this guy ! He is the most entertaining, mind blowing magician I have ever seen. His humor is suburb, his skill with magic simply blows people away. You won't believe the stuff Sly does ! ! ! I've seen him perform several times both for close up magic and on stage. He is a true entertainer, and his magic is FABULOUS ! He entertained for me and a party of friends 2 months ago and everyone is Still talking about him. This is one performer you won't be sorry you hired ! ! ! Sly .... if you read these reviews, please know that I am in awe of your magical talents. My friends were totally blown away with your performance. I can't say enough good things about you. I would highly recommend Sly the Magic Guy for your next party, if you want to have a fun and memorable time that you and your guests won't soon forget.

I hired this company to come dressed as Wonder Woman and Batgirl to entertain 40 6 year olds at a community center. They were a huge hit. I cannot say enough good things. The superheroes come with an assistant. They called me ahead of time so they could make a grand entrance. When I met them outside they were the loveliest three women. I could immediately tell they loved what they were doing. They were all smiles and happy. They did a fantastic job at entertaining the kids. They were fun---great with kids---and they did a special induction ceremony for my daughter who was the birthday girl. I was nervous taking a chance on a company I had never used before. I definitely had nothing to worry about. They were fantastic and I will be hiring them again! Thank you so much for the great entertainment!

She showed up a few minutes early to alot time for set-up so it would not cut into the time needed for entertaining the children and I truly appreciated this detail. She came well prepared with various paint colors and numerous face painting options to satisfy a broad range of personalities. Her artitistic skills were definately evident in her work as her face painting looked very detailed and the colors were very bright. The balloon artist also did an excellent job creating life like pets, swords and just about anything the children requested. Both Jennabelle and the balloon artist were truly professional. I highly recommend her and her but I would definately hire her again. We were very please and had our expectations exceeded. Thank for helping us make our family's celebration so unique and fun!

Captain Allstar was a fantastic magician and entertainer for my daughter's 5th birthday party! He's super friendly and fun. He was really great at engaging all the kids and keeping them active and involved. My friends and I joked that Captain Allstar would be a great elementary school teacher and we'd love to have our kids in his class! :-) The kids ranged in age from under 1 yr to 11yrs (the majority were 4-6yrs), and Captain Allstar was remarkable at keeping them all interested and entertained during his entire 45-minute show. They laughed at his antics and tricks and had a great time. He even had a "dance break" to get the kids up and moving at one point, which was great for the young kids who need to be busy and bouncing! I was also impressed by how well he remembered the kids' names as he incorporated them all into his show! He tried to give all of the kids a chance to participate or help in some way, which was awesome. My daughter the Birthday Girl was his special "assistant" the entire show and she loved it! He did a great job of making her feel special on her special day. We were super happy with his entire show!

Alexandra from DC Face Painting was awesome! She was very punctual and quickly engaged the children when she arrived. We live in Fairfax county, VA and booked her for 2 hours. About 10 mothers came up to me during the party and asked me where I had found her because they were so impressed with her art work and how fast she worked. The children in our group ranged in ages from 1-6 years and we had LOTs of kids at the party (about 50 kids). She quickly worked on each child and the results were fantastic!! The photos on the website do not do justice to the art work when you see it in person....she did an amazing job and great designs on the children. She also made balloon animals, etc. and kept the childrent excited. Her prices are also extremely reasonable!! We will definitely book her again for our next party!! She deserves the 5 stars!!

Sam created many different balloon animals and shapes for my son's birthday party. There were about a dozen kids who were nonstop in requesting more balloons. Sam worked quickly and made several shapes that impressed the adults as well. He worked for one hour within a flex booking which was very convenient since we had some late replies from guests about attending the party. He did not need a lot of space to set up and brought everything he needed - the kids were occupied for much of the time so the parents could eat and relax for a while. I did get a request from a family member for Sam's info for their kids' next party!

Two days before our daughter's 10th Carnival Birthday Party, I reached out to Thumbtack for a Magician to entertain our guests. Mr. Michael Chamberlin promptly responded to the request within a couple of hours. His bio, resume and prior performances and experiences were very impressive. We hired Michael to perform a Magic Show for her party held on 10/13/13. The party consisted of about 30 children and 25 Adults. Michael presented an excellent Magic Show engaging both the children and adults. The birthday girl really enjoyed it as well as everyone present. The children and adults were still talking about the show long after Michael had left. He was very professional, cordial, and entertaining. I am so glad that he responded to my Thumbtack Magician Request. Michael truly is a great Magician and an excellent entertainer who was capable of capturing, engaging and drawing in his entire audience from start to finish. His Magic Show was amazingly top notch. It was energizing from beginning to end. We laughed a lot and were amazed by his magical talents. We all loved his show. Thanks Again! R/Hope Fenstermacher

If I could give Mimi from PARTYYMAGIC ten stars, I honestly would! Mimi was quick to respond, offered fair pricing and did a FANTASTIC job at the party. When traffic from one party to ours got her a little behind schedule, she communicated immediately. She came right in, set up shop and went to work twisting balloons and painting like she'd been doing it all her life. And oh did the kids LOVE her! She is truly talented. I couldn't believe how effortlessly she made her work look. She even stayed a bit late and dealt just fine with a very busy party. All the parents kept asking me how I found her and if they could have her contact information! Would definitely hire again. Thanks Mimi!

I initially utilized another company who failed to confirm on the day of my daughters birthday party that a character was coming. I quickly posted a project on Thumbtack two hours before the party and Royal Entertainment responded to my ad within minutes. I spoke with them, booked a character and face painting at a reasonable price, and they showed up to the party and executed with ease. Thank you saving the day. The party would have been a disaster if not for Royal Entertainment’s superior customer service and willingness to meet my needs at the last minute.

Michael delighted our young adult guests with Taro card readings at a birthday party for our 17-year-old. We wanted a form of entertainment that would be interesting, engaging, simple and fun for this age group, and he accommodated our wishes perfectly, He also accepted this booking on short notice, replying promptly to emails as we discussed details, and I can't imagine how any part of the experience could have been improved upon! We all loved having him!

We had a post-wedding celebration and since a lot of our friends and family members have small children, we decided to provide an entertainment for the kids. I came across Dream Face Art and decided to contact them and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I've made this year :D Dubesya responded to my inquiries about having a balloon twister promptly, the process was super easy and straight forward. We had Mr. Twister (Ramiro) at our event, he came on time, very professional, and most importantly made everybody (adults included) happy with his AMAZING creations! We asked him to do Star Wars and Disney characters and the balloons were definiteyl unique and unlike what I've seen before! We are super happy with Dream Face Art and would definitely recommend. Friends and family kept prasing on how awesome his creations were. THANK YOU for the amazing work and help making our event a memorable one!! :D

James delighted every age group! He kept us all entertained with creative and elaborate balloon creatures and toy ideas. Kids would shout out imaginative requests and amazingly he made it! Even elderly neighbors asked for silly crowns or fun fish to take home. And, strangely, I don't think a single balloon popped during a 2 hour stint (even when kids would drop them or start rough play with them.) we are def having him come to the next event as he was so prompt and professional and kept a wide audience interested.

Candra was hired as the event coordinator for a 50th birthday party. She took care of everything from the decorations, food, cake, even the event location. The food was delicious. Everyone had a great time! Wonderful to work with. Will certainly hire her again in the future.

I asked Ed, very last minute, to provide entertainment for a 3-year-old birthday party. He responded to me almost immediately and in our first conversation, he detailed exactly what his services were for this age group and what his fee was. He arrived on time, ready to take on a group of short-attention spans and was a tremendous success. All the kids were interested in the magic and story time and and loved all their balloon animals. I will definitely call Ed for future parties!

I go visit Sandy every couple months and its always a wonderful experience. Shes magic :) Shes a very powerful psychic and is able to read and understand your karmic patterns, past/present/future and offer advice on life and our spiritual journey here on earth. What I love most about our sessions is her down to earth and ultra-wise perspective on life. Visiting with her is like getting to visit a psychiatrist who can tell you your future and converse with your soul. Always a special experience 5-Stars!

I had a great experience with Hop Skip& and Jump Entertainment and would recommend them to anyone. I hired them for my daughter's birthday for face painting and balloon twisting and it couldn't have turn out any better. Etna came earlier to set up and was wonderful with all the kids. Thank you so much and I will def. go through them for future parties.

We hired Spiderman and Princess Belle for a joint birthday party. Belle was AWESOME! She was totally engaged with the little girls -- story time, singing and face painting & dancing all very in character as what you would expect of a "Disney Princess". She answered questions, some complex and has studied her character so well she even speaks French! Spiderman was just ok to be honest. The guy playing Spiderman is a nice young man with a pleasant personality; but in character he left much to be desired. We had the two groups of kids (boys and girls) split during the character time; while Belle kept the girls engaged for 45 minutes until time to sing Happy Birthday Spiderman really spent only about 20 minutes with the boys. He had a makeshift obstacle course that was not very well put together, they boys were quickly bored with it. He gave them each a Spiderman tattoo, made them a balloon sword and then -- that was it. He did not keep them engaged as I had expected. I don't mind that he doesn't do flips and tricks, but I really expected him to have a LOT more energy and excitement to wow the boys. That just didn't happen. I kept going back and forth between the two groups and while Belle was actively engaged with the little girls (they were enamored with her) Spiderman was just -- well, "meh". Once the allure of his costume wore off there was nothing else there to keep the boys entertained and that was disappointing. I would definitely recommend Imagine Entertainers, Paula was AWESOME in the planning process -- I just would not recommend the young man that played Spiderman if you have a group of active little boys.
