Edward realy did a great job with his magic show and Baloon twisting! The kids were engaging and enjoying the entire show!

As the neighborhood Realtor, I had an Easter Party for 100 kids in Springfield, VA. We had an egg hunt, 2 face painters, cake & prizes. The Magician was a huge hit! He did a great job, and thoroughly entertained the kids! We look forward to having him next year! Thanks for a job well-done! -- Sandy Andrews

Lawrence the Magician was excellent. He was easy to communicate before the event, and did a fantastic show and strolling magic. We had 12 kids ages between 3 and 7 and he tailored the show to them. He even taught the birthday boy a magic trick to perform during the show. We highly recommend Lawrence!

Michael was an amazing magician at our son's 4th birthday party! We had kids ranging from 2-7 years old and they were mesmerized. They all sat very attentively and captivated with lots of laughing in between, both by the kids and the parents! Most of the adults came up to me to rave about his performance. But most of all he made my son feel special by making a special magic birthday cake and having the kids say "Happy Birthday" as the magic words.There was lots of kid participation and each one received a special balloon he made. We would highly recommend him for a kid's birthday! He is a nice person and is super with kids!!

Michael the Magician was absolutely amazing! His show was entertaining for the kids AND the adults at our party. He is a true professional--very talented, prompt, polite, and personable. He even lets the audience members take part in some of his illusions. Hire Michael Chamberlin for your next event and, I promise, you will be amazed! We certainly were!

Captain Allstar was a fantastic magician and entertainer for my daughter's 5th birthday party! He's super friendly and fun. He was really great at engaging all the kids and keeping them active and involved. My friends and I joked that Captain Allstar would be a great elementary school teacher and we'd love to have our kids in his class! :-) The kids ranged in age from under 1 yr to 11yrs (the majority were 4-6yrs), and Captain Allstar was remarkable at keeping them all interested and entertained during his entire 45-minute show. They laughed at his antics and tricks and had a great time. He even had a "dance break" to get the kids up and moving at one point, which was great for the young kids who need to be busy and bouncing! I was also impressed by how well he remembered the kids' names as he incorporated them all into his show! He tried to give all of the kids a chance to participate or help in some way, which was awesome. My daughter the Birthday Girl was his special "assistant" the entire show and she loved it! He did a great job of making her feel special on her special day. We were super happy with his entire show!

I posted my request on Thumbtack on Monday morning, and within 30 minutes I received a response from Captain Allstar. He called me, and I selected him to perform for my son's Birthday Party (the next day). We had to adjust the timeframe, and he was more than accommodating. He was punctual and professional throughout the entire event. The performance was five stars because he was able to provide a great show entertaining 16 4-5 year-olds for over 45 minutes. Captain Allstar had all the kids smiling, laughing, and dancing. He was so impressive that he paused the show while the birthday boy took a potty break and still kept the audience's attention.Captain Allstar made my son's birthday a hit! I recommend Captain Allstar to anyone who is looking for a top notch clumsy superhero magician! Many Thanks, The Wells Family Alexandria, VA

He entertained for me and a party of friends 2 months ago and everyone is Still talking about him. This is one performer you won't be sorry you hired ! ! ! Sly .... if you read these reviews, please know that I am in awe of your magical talents. My friends were totally blown away with your performance. I can't say enough good things about you.

Amazing. He was on time, professional and performed as requested for my private cocktail party. He was doing "mingling magic" with my guest and no one suspected that he was a professional was just the way I wanted. My friends loved him. I will ask him back for my next gathering in the summer.

What an exceptional job! A job well done! Leading up to my son's first birthdays party I had to entertainers cancel on me last minute. I was lucky to have someone refer me to Michael. I expkained to him the mishap that led me to him and he was very caring and considerate. He understood what had happened and made it possible to come to Baltimore to put on a show. He worked with me and was very professional throughout the entire experience. He was unique and funny. The children lived his performance and even some adults took part in the fun. He allowed the children to pet the rabbit and made each age group in attendance be able to take part! He made balloon art which the children loved and even read Giovanni's favorite book. I must say that when asked about children entertainment for parties I will definitely recommend "Zig Zag"! I will be booking him again!

Michael is a member of Kapitol Klowns Assn of Maryland, which is an organization comprised of entertainers for the Meca of D.C, Virginia and Maryland. Michael is an excellent balloon artist, face painter and magician. The children are especially crazy about Michael (ZigZag's) balloons! What a wonderful entertainer!

Michael is the complete clown! He is funny, witty, and polite. He works well with all ages and especially well with children! He has the entire clown repertoire of funny jokes, balloon tying, face painting, and magic tricks. As an added bonus, he also has a very cute and cuddly bunny that goes by the name of Ms. Jasmine.

Drew Owen performed a magic show for my child's birthday party. The kids (both boys and girls, aged six to ten) were totally amazed by the show - as were the parents! Seeing the kids' jaws drop as Professor Fizzwiffle somehow made cards appear on the other side of the room, coins and flowers vanish, and wacky ghosts dance wildly through the air made for great party entertainment. Mr. Owen was at ease with the kids and extremely professional to deal with, helping us to work out the best show for us, arriving early on the day, and demonstrating flexibility with the space and guests. Mr. Owen is an excellent magician and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

Drew is a breath of fresh air. He is very talented both as a magician and a musician but, beyond that, he is extremely funny. We hired him to do a "wizard" magic show for our son's Harry Potter birthday party and he was such a good sport and even changed some of his act to better suit the party. He certainly went above and beyond and, more importantly, the kids loved him.

Troop 688 Blue and Gold Loved Mr. Owen. He went from table to table and did little tricks that had the cubs simply amazed. He had their attention with ease. During the show during dinner he included cubs to be part of the magic. They felt like mini magicians. I would HIGHLY recommend Drew for any magic show for any age.

My wife and I saw comedy magician Anthony Ware perform at Club Bambou in Baltimore. He was on the line-up with several comedians. His show was terrific, and funny. The magic was incredible! He totally engaged the audience through-out his performance. At one point he had two people from the audience on stage with him. It was hilarious! It was truly a pleasure to see a artist who's able to do a clean performance that is simply outstanding.Kudos to Mr.Ware.It was money well spent.

Eric performed on the first night of Camp FACE (Finding Acceptance in a Camping Environment), as the opening activity for our three-day camp for children ages 10-18 with craniofacial birth defects. Eric's warm personality, excellent showmanship, and ability to engage with our teenage campers was the perfect start to our weekend! His show was fun, engaging, funny, and inspirational in all of the right places. Several of our campers and counselors continued to talk about Eric's magic tricks over the course of the weekend and many campers said the magic show was their favorite part of camp! We will most certainly be inviting Eric back to be part of Camp FACE next year, because he truly IS amazing!

We ran into him and his AWESOME family and friends in Golden Fireworks a few days ago. He started to perform a magic trick for my son and pretty soon even the bystanders were shocked and amused. A few of us (Including the nonbelievers)even had him to slow down and repeat himself to see if we could follow the "trick". He's the real deal! And great with kids. BOOK HIM! BOOK HIM! BOOK HIM!
