Ione was just straight out amazing we only spoke on email she was true to her word showed up at my requested time did an outstanding Job with the kids and their face painting and she worked the room and went to every kid asking what type of animal and what color balloon they wanted!!

We were looking for a face painter for our daughters birthday party. It was held at a local restaurants function area. We hired her for two hours. Clover was amazing, she was on time, she is an amazing artist, you can tell she loves what she does based upon her amazing work. When we were looking for a face painter, Clover was the only one who was upfront with her pricing and even helped us figure how many hours were appropriate based upon how many kids were going to the party (others did not, they just quoted for what we initially signed up for). Clover made our daughter's special day that much better. My advice is book her early, she does tend to get booked out very quickly( we contacted her about one month prior to the party). Based on my experience I would recommend Clover to all my friends and family.

Clover was amazing at my son and nephews joint 6th birthday party! She's great with the kids and her work is insanely good! The kids and parents were super happy with the results. They all wanted to keep the face paint on to wear to school the next day! I would recommend clover to anyone looking for a face painter!!

Angelina was great!!. She's so down to earth! When you sit in her chair you become so relaxed. The party Clover did for me was a kids party for a one year old, funny how all the adults ended up walking around with the coolest face paint right along with the kids. We all had a great time. Thank you Angelina.

Bob and Kathy were entertaining to the adults and the older kids. We found that the younger children (kids under 5 at our party) had a difficult time with the pace of the act. It was great that Bob was very personable and he engaged the kids and got them involved in the act. However, the pace was a bit slow and we noticed that the younger kids ended up losing interest and walking away whereas the older kids and adults were entertained and enjoyed the show! Kathy's balloon animals were great and every child got one to take home. Great combination for a party. I would recommend the act, just not for the very young kids as the pace couldn't hold their attention.

Bob was excellent. His story telling skills are extremely engrossing for kids & elders. In my 6 yr old daughter's bday party, kids enjoyed his show thoroughly and best part was his wife making balloons towards end of the show for every kid which kids enjoyed the most and got very excited about. Thank You Bob !

Bob was a terrific find for my 5 yr old's birthday party. All of the 30 plus children at the party were thoroughly engaged without the show. I would recommend Bob for any party. His wife made balloon animals for the kids after the show which was an added bonus. Thanks again Bob for everything.

Malik is amazing! He was easy to communicate with, very friendly, and very professional. Not only is he a talented magician but he’s also hilarious! We hired him for our son’s 11th birthday party and he involved all of the children with his tricks and had everyone laughing, even the adults. Especially the adults! He customized his show for my son, who is mature for his age, so the kids never felt like they were being played down to which was so cool. I love that he took the time to learn who he was going to be working for. He’s a true talent and I’m so, so happy that I found him! Hire this man!!

Ms. Miranda is AWESOME!! I hired Ms. Miranda for the first time about three years ago to face paint at my daughters first birthday party. She was a hit and the best part of the party with all her creativities. All the kids loved her and so did the parents. Since then, my friends and I hires her for all our kids birthdays and different functions. Ms. Miranda is always very professional and had all the kids attention and knew exactly what to say and do to keep the smiles on their faces. She has a soft and caring voice that made the younger ones more at ease with letting a stranger paint their faces. You are the best Ms. Miranda, keep up the AWESOME work!!!!!

Eric was absolutely outstanding. We had a 75 person party with a mix of children and adults from 6mos to 95years old. He did a short show for the kids, then wandered from group to group for closeup magic with the adults. Everyone LOVED him. I had many people ask where to find him. Eric is funny and personable. He was right on time and did exactly what he promised to do. Don't hesitate, just hire Eric for your event. You will not be disappointed.

Rented Bouncing House Rental for 1year old Birthday party. Face painting and Balloon artistry. Gihan and her husband were prompt and the kids instandtly fell in love with her paint work and her husband balloon twisting artistry. When he made the monkey on the branch in balloons everyone said wow! Great people to work with and the pricing was just right. Even when more kids showed up wanting their face painted, they were more than willing to accommodate.

They were awesome! They came out for my son's first birthday party where we had kids of all ages and they entertained even the adults! They did the balloons and magic show while the other woman did the face painting! I loved that they had both the face painting and the magic show going at once to keep the audience engaged and involved at all times. They even had pictures of the face painting on display so people could choose from their previous art work! They did an awesome job we will definitely have them back and highly recommend them to anyone looking for this type of entertainment for their parties!

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.

Dan was amazing! he was friendly, amazingly talented, and a huge hit with kids and adults! we had him come to a work picnic with medical staff. The adults liked his hats and animals as much as the kids did. They all stood in line patiently, and watched as princesses, swords, cats, giraffes and dogs came out of his hands. You can't get better!

Giovanna was incredible. We were a bachelorette party of six ladies age 28-50. We were running late and she waited for us. We wanted to do Day of the Dead Catrina faces, and she did a wonderful job. You can just show her a picture off Pinterest and she can literally replicate it. She also is creative and had great suggestions. Definitely don't hesitate to book her for an adult party just bc she mostly shows kids. She was great!

John Lee at The Party Fun (TPF) was the DJ and Photo Booth provider to my daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday party. He did an excellent job at a very reasonable price! He was very responsive to all our requests and even helped us out in a pinch when our other photo booth vendor fell through. He arrived early and set up all by himself very quickly. His equipment worked perfectly and the photo booth pictures were of the highest quality with no glitches. He even brought extra lighting equipment and made the event extra special. I would definitely recommend him for all party needs!

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!!!
