George was hands down the easiest part of our school carnival. He responded within half an hour of my job request; communicated his needs clearly, well before the function start; and showed up ready, and on time. He was wearing performers clothing which set him apart from the regular crowd. All of the kids loved his balloon creations. He has a friendly and approachable demeanor which put all of the adults at ease. George was definitely the highlight of our carnival, and we would hire him again. Thank you George!

I am so happy Gabby was able to make our God Daughter’s 3rd birthday party THAT much more special. Upon prompt booking, to very clear and open communication before even meeting her, she was very pleasant. The day of, she was on time! SO patient and accommodating to all the guests and kids I couldn’t ask for a better entertainer.. I told her a guesstimate of how many kids we were expecting and she gave me a time window of 1.5 hours, she finished within that time frame with a few more guests added. Will definitely book her in the near future! Thank you again Gabby.

All I can say is WOW. I seen other magicians at parties but nothing like this. He cost a little more than the other bids but was more than worth it. This is not a gut doing simple sill tricks for kids. The kids were laughing and squealing for almost an hour. What surprised me most was how much the adults were blown away by the magic. And how much they laughed too. I called a reference mom about him and her comments were so good I didn't believe he could really be that good. He was actually better than she told me. At the end Rick made a real live rabbit appear right next to my daughter and this was a huge hit and made my daughter's day.

The Great Surprisal was hired to be our event coordinator as well as serving as our emcee. This is an annual dinner/fundraiser for a small non-profit. Amelia worked with us from the beginning finding a caterer, hiring musicians, working with venue, coordinating volunteers for our silent auction as well as other parts of our evening. We increased our net income by over 25%! We had used the venue before but with the creativity and cost conscious Great Surprisal we had a totally transformed 'gym' from years gone by. Past attendees commented on the greatly improved environment, excellent food and the overall sense of a better-planned event. We will work with The Great Surprisal again and encourage others to do so. Last year we worked with The Great Suprisal as an emcee only. Customers should definitely check out 'Gina' as an addition to a party or event. We are very pleased with The Great Surprisal's work ethic and creativity of working on a limited budget.

I don't see an option giving more than 5 star. She was on time and quickly started face painting. All of our guests said one of the highlight was face painting and balloon twisting. Thank you Maricella for making our sons first birthday more special and memorable.

It was super amazing having AlakaSam perform at my daughters First Birthday party. We are still trying to figure out how his tricks were even possible. It was just great entertainment and the kids and even the crowd loved his performance.

I hired Jain based upon her work shown in the pics and I am so happy we had her be a part of celebrating my daughter's 5th birthday! If I could rate 10 stars I would! From the moment I contacted Jain, she responded right away and was so great with her communication through personal contact until the day of the party. She did a wonderful job and she even painted some of the adults faces which was great!!! Thank you Jain for your professionalism and your wonderful artwork!!"

Tim is a great entertainer! I have seen him perform on multiple occasions ad I never cease to be amazed. His ability to "roll with the punches" and interact with the crowd makes his shows very engaging. My wife and I love having our date night at Egan's when he performs; a little food, a little drink, and a lot of laughs.

At first I was worried if this person was real or not because it was my first time hiring a tarot card reader, so I did my research and found out she was legit. There's a lot of scammers out there so it is worrisome but luckily she was amazing! A lot of my friends had a good time getting their first time tarot reading. A lot of them wasn't familiar with it but found it entertaining. I really wanted to do extend the hours but our budget was tight sadly! Others wanted to try it too but haven't had the chance. My friends who got their readings were pleased with her. I would definitely want to hire her again next time there's an event! I highly recommend her :) Tip# 1: make sure you have table and chair available for her so she can set her tarot cards! She also does palm readings if you're interested. She also has candles to make it more exciting and intriguing. Tip# 2: we had almost 30 adults at my daughter's 1st birthday. 1 hour wasn't enough! I think she was able to do readings for 5-6 people only.

    - I can highly recommend Drew. He is a great DJ and host. He worked with me to figure out my musical tastes and what others at the wedding would enjoy. I was very particular about not having generic wedding songs and not too many slow dances. We went over songs I wanted to definitely hear or not hear. During the wedding he was great and kept me and my friends dancing to the wee hours! In addition I have also attended two other weddings where he was the DJ and they were a very different style from mine - mine was nearly all adults and mostly in their 30's vs having a huge wedding with tons of family and kids. He accommodated those differences very well. And again the dance floor was always packed and people were very happy.

    About

    The experience of being entertained has come to be strongly associated with amusement, so that one common understanding of the idea is fun and laughter, although many entertainments have a serious purpose. This may be the case in the various forms of ceremony, celebration, religious festival, or satire for example. Hence, there is the possibility that what appears as entertainment may also be a means of achieving insight or intellectual growth.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does a fortune teller do?

    A fortune teller offers insight into people’s past, present and future through private readings. Some fortune tellers read palms or use tarot cards, runes, or tea leaves to see into a client’s future. Other fortune tellers consider themselves psychics, numerologists and mystics who look for patterns and meaning in seemingly random events, such as stirred tea leaves or the draw of a tarot card. By interpreting what they see in the cards or leaves, fortune tellers answer their clients’ questions about their lives, such as who or when they’ll marry, whether they should quit their job, or whether they should have a baby. Tarot card readings are a particularly popular way of having your future told, because they’re such a familiar method of fortune telling. More importantly, you can guide a tarot reading by asking the specific questions that are most important to you. By interpreting the cards you’ve drawn, the fortune teller may give you new insight into yourself and help you make an important decision. For some people, fortune tellers are simply amusing, but for others, they offer helpful guidance and spiritual nourishment.
