We hired Alan to perform magic tricks for our son's 9th birthday. Alan did a great job with the kids. We had a range of kids from 1.5 to 14 years old and he kept all the kids as well as adults engaged with several different tricks, many of which we are still trying to figure out! He was on time, very professional and engaged many of our family in his tricks. His balloon animals were also enjoyed by all.Apr 12, 2017Verified
We had Alan come to my home for my son's 4th birthday party. I purchased the deluxe package. He was punctual, wasn't in a hurry, made each kid a balloon animal in their favorite color, and had a great show that held the attention of a room full of toddlers for 45 minutes. Highest recommendations!Feb 13, 2017Verified
My 11 year old daughter and her friends loved having Alan at her party. Would definitely hire again.Jun 13, 2020Verified
We hired him for our sons 6th birthday party. He was fun to watch and very good with the kids!Jun 30, 2019Verified
We had Alan for our daughter's graduation luncheon party which was held at Andina Restaurant in Portland. Out total number of guests was around 50. I would say that he timed his routines table to table perfectly with the end of the event. Our guests were highly entertained with his magic as well as his (clean) humor. His presence also made it easier for us, the hosts, to meet with all out guests table to table. Highly recommended. Great Job Alan.Jul 1, 2019Verified
- What types of customers have you worked with?I've performed for community festivals across the Midwest, neighborhood block parties, birthday parties, and corporate events in front of over 15,000 people. As a professional event entertainer, there really is no "common" job; each opportunity to wow a client and their guests is unique and customized.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?My advice would be to seek out as many different options for entertainment as you can. I know that might sound odd coming from someone who is interested in your business, but it's the truth. Check out other websites, videos, and testimonials of potential entertainment options, and then contact a few of your favorites directly.
