EVAH was fantastic. The kids loved the different face paint designs. The two face painters were patient and listened to each child's special request, despite having a line that seemed to be never-ending. They were very friendly, worked diligently and made sure all of the kids left with smiles. Couldn't ask for more!!!

Charmaine was wonderful at my daughter's 1st birthday party yesterday! We hired her to do balloon twisting to keep all the kids entertained and happy, and she definitely delivered. She was very professional from the start with all our correspondence, she showed up at the party on time & ready to go, and she even pre-made a sweet birthday cake balloon for my daughter. The kids were so happy with all their creations and they kept showing off what Charmaine had made for them. At one point I went over to her and asked if all the kids were behaving themselves (a few were rowdy) and she said they were fine and she insisted for me to go back to mingling and enjoying the party. I highly recommend her!

This was my first experience hiring entertainment for my children's birthday party, and Justin was extremely helpful and attentive to my wishes and concerns! He did an amazing job with the kids, providing a tight wire activity, juggling, and balloon animals! He is very personable and really made the party special. I will most definitely be hiring him again for future events. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience working with Mystery Circus Arts!

We hired Reasonably Priced Magician via Thumbtack for a Harry Potter party for my son and niece. Right away, we switched over to using my personal email account, and exchanged several emails in the weeks leading up to the party. All my questions were answered in a timely and thorough manner. I was impressed at the magician's ability to hold the attention of a large group of rowdy first graders. The show was engaging and fun for everyone, and our magician had both children and adults laughing. Everyone agreed that we were given a show with just the right combination of magic and humor. Overall, we very satisfied with the price, service, communication, and punctuality of Reasonably Priced Magician. Keith has a nice way about him. He's very good with children, as he is subtle and not over the top flashy or in their face. Some entertainers are just too much and turn off kids who are more shy or overstimulated easily. Keith really read the crowd and within 5 minutes of our 50 minute show, he knew his audience and catered to exactly what the kids wanted, while also throwing in understated "British humor" style jokes for the parents. I would recommend their services and will use them in the future for my daughter's birthday parties when she's a bit older.

Kyle was a truly exceptional performer. He was professional friendly and great with the children. He had the kids rolling on the floor laughing with his jokes and tricks. I could not imagine how any other show could be as good as this was. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a children's entertainer and will certainly hire him again.

Bill Diamond was great!! I hired him for my kids' birthday party which included approximately 35 children, ages 2-13, boys and girls. He was very interactive with the kids and held their attention the entire time. I really don't know what I would've done without him! The magic show was very entertaining for all guests, young and old. The balloon animals were fantastic, not you're average sword or hat. As a special surprise for the kids, he was also able to provide a bag cotton candy (my color choice) to each of the kids, which served as a nice alternative to goody bags. The children couldn't stop talking about him and trying to figure out his magic long after he left. Bill Diamond was professional, polite, punctual, fascinating to watch, and his price couldn't be beat. I would certainly recommend this wonderful magician and entertainer and hope to have him back again for another function in the future. Thanks for making my party a success!!

Courtney Sell is not only a Caricaturist, she is also one the more professional artists that I have ever worked with. From the time she arrived, until the time she departed she was working super hard to create lasting memories for all the guests attending my wedding reception. When a few folks, still needed to be drawn, Courtney was asked to stay, upon which she gladly accommodated our request, and proceeded to draw my nephew & my sister in law in that time, and they still have not stopped talking about how great their pictures are. Many people will be heading to the store to buy frames to put them in. Everyone always does jellies, jams, and cookies as wedding trinket for guests. So cliche. Now a Caricature drawinga is a lasting, funny memory!

I hired Matt to perform at my daughter's birthday party. The kids loved the magic and the adults were rolling in laughter at the ventriloquist performance. The price was reasonable too and he arrived on time and had everything set up before the start of the party. I would definitely recommend Matt Cadabra!

They responded quickly to my email. On the day of the event they were on time and pleasant. They kept my party organized - but most of all my group of 8 year old boys loved their show. Would recommend them for entertainment.

I had Mike to my home for an engagement party. His slight of hand, humor and incredible mentalist skills made him a hit of the party. We felt so fortunate to have Las Vegas Style talent in our home. He is professional , highly talented and entertaining! Having a great magician perform in your home is not easily found. This is what makes his style of entertainment unique. I will be sure to use him again for my next special occasion. If you are looking to add a unique twist to your party, look no further!
