We take pride in adding high-caliber roving entertainment -adding the buzz -adding the magic – that will set your event apart.
Add to that the peace of mind event planners experience when they book our characters. Pricing is very reasonable, creative consulting is free of charge, all changes in program are promptly confirmed, and performers always arrive an hour before their first set, with the team leader checking in immediately upon arrival with the pre-designated on site contact.
Our actors are experts at breaking the ice as soon as your guests arrive, then drawing guests into the theme of the event. Their material and humor can be modified to suit the specific needs of each client -so your guests response is guaranteed.
Our characters add value to events on many levels. While entertaining your guests, the performers:
- Reinforce your event’s theme
- Promote sponsors and brands
- Support your event organizers
- Greet arriving guests
- Guide guests through an event schedule
- Provide flow to your event
- Create memorable “photo scenarios” with guests for social media
