Mark was excellent. We talked before the party and he had great ideas. He adjusted the volume up and down per our request throughout the party. He had fun game ideas and took special requests. We could not be happier. One of my guests was in the entertainment industry and he was also impressed. Quick piece of advice if booking on this site is to call direct to confirm. Our app didn't confirm.

Malik is a pleasure to have as an entertainer. His show was amazing. You feel that he loves what he does. He's a master of his craft and delivered a wonderful magic show with comedy and dry humor. My son's 17th Birthday will be remembered. Thanks, Malik! S. Hanney Massachusetts

Regina was the perfect entertainment host for our church's Christmas fair! She is so wonderfully talented and the crowd loved her old and young alike. We will be having her come to all our future events. I highly recommend Scribble Dibble for any event. She's also very organized with her stuff laid out so well. Very inviting, friendly and professional. Thank you for helping make our event a big success! Linda May Cochesett United Methodist Church West Bridgewater, MA

Eric's show was phenomenal!! He performed for approximately 55 students ranging in ages 5-12 and he kept the ENTIRE audience(teachers included) engaged throughout his 45 minute magic show. The kids loved the fact that they played an important role in each and every magic trick!! He even provided "magic wand" certificates to every child stating that they officially performed magic in his show. It was great to see the kids faces light up and hear the OOOOH"s and AHHHH'S during and after each trick! Upon completion of the show, Eric created balloon animals, swords, and hats just to name a few...you name it Eric could make it!! All in all Eric Benton's Magic far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much, you were fabulous in every aspect from punctuality and professionalism to funny, zany, and wonderful entertainment!!

We hired Mary Beth to offer our guests, who didn't wish to dance, some interesting entertainment at my wife's 40th birthday party. Mary Beth was a hit. A line formed in front of her reading table, and she did readings for 20 minutes after the event was over. Although, my wife and I didn't have a chance to get a reading (due to high demand), we heard from our guests that Mary Beth was excellent. She arrived on time, and was flexible enough to stay an hour longer than we had originally agreed.

Jennifer was a delight to work with and did an outstanding job of photographing our family of 10, ranging in age from one to seventy-six years old. She was very creative in arranging formal groupings of various combinations of family members, photographed us both indoors and out, and even managed to get several candid shots. Two particularly strong attributes were her empathy and patience for her subjects. I am confident our pictures will be great. I give her five stars. I would certainly hire her again and recommend her without reservation.

Lisa provided balloon twisting and face painting for a three year olds birthday party in Clinton, MA. Lisa and her partner were amazing. She arrived early enough to set up and begin on time. The team was great with the children-appropriate dress, conversation, people skills. Lisa met the needs of the party. Other performers that were interviewed for the party were dictating what would happen. Lisa listened and incorporated her skills to meet the needs of our birthday boy. I highly recommend Lisa and Just Clowning Around for your event.

I hired Maureen to entertain 10 kids at my son's birthday party and it was a success! She is great and the kids had a lot of fun with face painting and balloons! She was able to satisfy all of them with even the most difficult face paintings and balloons requests, in a quick but detailed way. Also the other parents were well impressed and gave positive feedbacks. I would definitely hire her again!

Coastal Music Services was everything we wanted and so much more. We were running a family oriented outdoor fundraiser. Nancy knew just the music to play to keep the energy up. She ran interactive dances with the kids and was an outstanding MC. I’ve worked with many DJs and entertainers. Coastal Music Services is the gold standard. They will listen to your needs and tailor the music etc so that you get what you want for your special day. They understand people, crowds and what works at events, Oh and they came with a bubble machine and a very professional setup. Hire Coastal Music Services! I know I’ll never need to find another DJ. Nancy is the best!!!!!

Jackie at Total Party Fun was amazing! I hired her (first time using Thumbtack, so you was a little nervous!) to provide secondary activities for a dance with 375 high school aged teens. She and her team provided two airbrush tattoo artists and two blow up games (twister and airball). All of our communications were professional and reassuring. She and her assistant arrived on time, set up a terrific tattoo booth and worked tirelessly to provide tattoos for an endless sea of teens. I could not recommend her more highly. We all enjoyed our tattoos and Jackie's smile and enthusiasm were a big hit! I don't have a single negative thing to say.

Chris was a joy to work with! He came in and did a show for our vacation camp kids here at the YMCA over December school break, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their experience. Not only was he easy to work with and flexible when booking the event, but he was professional and pleasant at all times both in communications via email and phone and in person. The kids laughed the entire show, and were in shock and awe of the magic tricks performed. We loved how many tricks he required volunteers from, the kids love to help out! He had a great respectful way of keeping the kids sitting and quiet so they could focus on the show, his techniques were very developmentally appropriate from an educators stand point, which is not always the case with performers we have brought in. I highly recommend Chris and will be asking him back again for future events for our camps, and preschool program! Thank You!!!

Don was great; he was on time and was a big hit at our wedding. His work is fantastic and all of our guests commented on how personable and talented Don is. He was able to get through a lot of drawings quick to the delight of all our guests. I think I liked watching Don work rather than being the subject of his drawing. Either way, I would highly recommend Don for your next corporate or private event.

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.
