Doug was hired to be a magician in a market stall in our Ancient Egypt VBS. He took the initiative to dress in an Egyptian costume. And he changed a trick so it was "cleaner" for kids in a church setting. He interviewed the best of the three I called. And the kids loved him! He used flash paper!

Sean "The Prankster" Magician has done a few shows for our resort, and will be back for more. "The Prankster" has a wide variety of tricks and shows, so even repeat customers will be surprised. Many entertainers don't interact well with an audience or ignores them completely, but not "The Prankster". "The Prankster" not only encourages the audience to participate in the show, but has many tricks where the audience is a hilarious part. We look forward to having Sean "The Prankster" Magician entertain our guests for years to come.

I haven't stopped hearing about how amazing Jason Ladanye was at our event on Saturday night. He's been compared to David Blaine and other magicians of that caliber. I'm so happy we added Jason to our lineup and our guests really thought he was incredible. We would definitely consider having him back next year!

Eric did awesome. Kept the kids entertained the whole time and the kids all enjoyed the show. Each kid went home with a flower balloon, sword balloon or a dog shaped balloon. I would definitely recommend him and hire him again.

Abigail was an absolute hit at my daughters fourth birthday party. We had met her at a birthday party a few years back and remembered how enamoured all the children were with her. My daughter wanted a party with her whole class and we were nervous about how we would entertain over 20 kids in our home. We decided to hire Abigail and it was the best decision ever! Abigail's balloon creations even had the adults amazed! She was kind and took the time to engage the children. All 20 plus children received a balloon masterpiece and we were thrilled that the party went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend Abigail!

Balloon Gal Jenny brought the entertainment to my daugters first birthday. She is an innovative balloon artist that made the kids laugh and enjoy her creations even after the party was over. Balloon Gal Jenny made bow and arrow balloons for even the older kids and the "adult" kids to enjoy! I would highly recommend her for any event you are hosting!

Not only did "Magicman" exceed our expectations of balloon twisting, but once he arrived he seemed to get the kids really into the party. He made special balloons that each child picked themelves. He can make anything! He made spongebob squarepants for my friend's daughter and it was perfect. He had shorts, legs, the head and even a red tie. there is nothing that Magicman cannot make. He also painted the kids faces afterwards and it was awesome! The kids were so excited and they each got to bring home their own unique balloon. After he had left the kids were excited about the rest of the games and activities that we had planned for my son's 1st birthday. Magicman was professional, timely, friendly, skilled, and great at what he does. He was the best part of my son's party and he seemed to kick the party off.

As a fellow entertainer I can honestly say that PJ does amazing face painting that rivals the best in the business. He works quickly and has a professional demeanor that is essential when dealing with people. If you are looking for some fantastic entertainment, look no further.

Scott did an amazing job with the balloon animals! He has a wonderful personality to work with children, and they all loved him and his creations! He also did a balancing/ juggling show which the adults enjoyed as much as the children! I would highly recommend Scotty from Nut Nut Entertainment! He made my child's birthday party unforgettable.
