Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on October 15, 2022From Germantown, MD

I REGRET hiring Crickett for my client's event. - He was on his phone texting the majority of the event (there was no valid emergency or reason) - He was sent home early because of his poor performance and negative attitude - He gave attitude to the 2 year old birthday boy because the 2 year old popped a balloon - He seemed like he hated his job - Guests complained about his demeanor the entire time - His demeanor was so poor, I was embarrassed that I chose him for the party. I asked for the deposit back and he refused. I ended up refunding the client in full ($250) myself for his poor service.


Thank you for your reply. While I certainly appreciate that this agent l feels that they did not receive the level of service expected, when I left this event the agent seemed happy, as did the client and party guests. But regardless of whether I receive a positive or negative review, I learn something new from each engagement/gig, and am appreciative of the time I spent at this party. With that said, there are some significant inaccuracies in this review, including the claim that I refused to fully refund the client. I offered a full refund, as per my satisfaction guarantee. I believe the other reviews on this page offer a more accurate picture of my skills and

Crickett was wonderful. He was on time and made amazing balloons for the kids. He was endlessly patient with them - the kids popped a lot of them! His designs were very good and the color selection was great. I would highly recommend him!

Crickett is just wonderful. Even in a rainstorm, perfect, timely kept not just the childrens’ attention but also the adults. Great magician and balloon twister.


Thank you for such a great review! Feel free to reach out anytime you have an event :)

Crickett was phenomenal! Everyone--kids and adults--were enraptured by the show, it was hilarious, exciting, fun & surprising. He was timely, warm, professional and very entertaining. His rapport with the kids was especially touching. He did his circus show (juggling, diabalo, fire eating, etc.) and then made balloon animals, which was a perfect combination. The kids were extremely into the show and they eagerly lined up after for their chance to interact with Crickett individually with the balloon creations, and he made some pretty elaborate ones! Many people asked me for his inf, and when I dropped off my son as at school ALL the kids were talking about Crickett.

Crickett was a pleasure to work with for our daughter's birthday party. He was responsive, he was punctual, he was personable, he was talented at multiple kid-friendly activities (balloon animals were a huge hit!) and he put on an entertaining show. Many of the parents even asked for his contact info for future events!

The show he put on was fantastic! Both children and adults enjoyed the show. Exceeded my expectations for my sons 6th birthday party. He ate fire, need I say more?!!


Very sorry about that! If you ever need to contact me my email, website, and number should have been on the initial quote. I get so many leads on this site that sometimes the private messages get lost in translation. Thank you for the awesome party and glowing review! I'm glad I could help make the birthday party extra cool!

We had Crickett perform for my son’s fifth birthday party. Kids were howling with laughter. Balloons were super great. He was very fun. Thanks for making it a great party!

Crickett put on a great show! He kept the children and even the adults entertained. Working with Crickett for my twins' first birthday was a breeze, I would definitely recommend him!

Crickett performed a pirate show for our preschool. He did a fantastic job and the children (and teachers!) truly enjoyed the show! On the administrative side, Crickett was very accommodating and responsive. He was extremely easy to work with. I highly recommend Crickett!

He was patient and offered to wait before his performance since some guests were running late. He was super polite and hilarious. I have friends asking for his info for future birthday parties.

He did really well for event. He kept the kids ranging from age 4-15 entertained for about 20 minutes, then made a balloon for each of the 80 + students. Very nice guy, then kids really enjoyed him.

He did fine, wasn't polished, more appropriate for a children's party


As a professional of 15 years, I am terribly sorry and surprised to read this review. All of the attendees seemed to enjoy the show and the client texted the next day to let me know the show was great. I am afraid that perhaps the silly magic show that was requested was not the show that was desired. Most who book me through this website are looking for a family friendly show, so to ensure client satisfaction, I will only work blue if specifically asked. The postponed start time of 8:30 resulted in less-than-ideal performing conditions because of the lack of light for the juggling & danger tricks. That being said, I would like to make this right with this cli
