I hired these wonderful people for my medieval themed wedding and they DID NOT DISAPPOINT! In fact they surpassed my expectations and I am dying to work with them again! I wanted 2 knights to come out an Dule for my guest during dinner at the reception and boy did they! They put on a fantastic show and all my guests loved them! Thank you all so much for bringing our vision to life! Our special day would not have been the same without you! More...

Wonderful experience with ActionEvents LA two years in a row! My five year old and his friends were so enthralled with "spider man" and "spider gwen." The actors were very engaging and we had such a fun time at their studio. Parents were able to sit back and enjoy themselves as well. Barbara was responsive and helped to coordinate an awesome birthday party. We accidentally left behind my son's medal, and Barbara was kind enough to include a note from spider man upon returning it to us. Highly recommend! More...

Very professional! I was a bit nervous about having actors dress up as Batman and Captain America for my son's 3 year old birthday party but these guys blew us away. From start to finish they were professional and in character- they had wonderful games for the children and were even able to handle and redirect the more intense little ones which ease. The costumes were movie quality and the owners communicated with us very well. We will use them again and again. More...

Everyone at our party was asking where we found our characters!!! What a hit! FYI we had Red Power Ranger Ninja Steel and Darth Vader. They were so fun and amazing. Kids absolutely had a blast. All the adults really enjoyed watching them. The interaction between the two characters was hilarious. More...

MADE OUR PARTY A MEMORABLE SUCCESS!!! My son Sparrow had a 4th Birthday Superhero Party yesterday and it would not have been complete and as fun if it weren't for the special guest appearances of Spider-man, Captain America, and Captain Marvel! They were all so energetic and playful with the kids (which we had a total about 40 of)... and best of all they were very professional and respectful toward the parents, which we were so thankful for! From Superhero training to picture taking to cake cutting...all in full costumes during this summer heat, mind you...  I was so pleased with this company that for me their work yesterday solidified why they have a well deserved 5/5 star rating. Today, Sparrow's classmates couldn't stop talking about his party...he must have gotten some brownie popularity points for the rest of the year (I did too- with the "Hi Sparrow's Mommy!" Alllll morning lmao).THANK YOU to Tim for starting it all out with such a smooth reservation process and for having a marvelous team of Superheroes that helped make Sparrow's 4th birthday event one to remember!!!!

I cannot begin to express how throughly impressed not only I was, but how impressed all of our family and friends were with our knight entertainment (Chris and Casara) with Action Events LA!  From the moment I contacted Tim and Barbara, it was such an amazing experience.  They knew exactly what I wanted to create the perfect atmosphere for my sons Renaissance themed birthday party.  Every dollar spent was WELL WORTH IT!  Our party was just over 70 people and so many of our guests came up to me saying, "Where did you find these knights?" "They are hilarious" "The kids LOVE them!" "They are incredible" "Do you have their cards?" Chris and Casara were the BEST!  They mingled with ALL of our guests, had WONDERFUL attitudes while wearing all their gear in the heat, and stayed in character from the moment they arrived to the second they left. I could not have asked for a better duo, seriously.  They entertained about 20 kids for 1 1/2 hours and let me just say this, THEY ENTERTAINED!  They did not have any down time.  From putting on a sword fighting show, to teaching the kids how to sword fight, to taking them on a quest to find a treasure chest, they were non-stop!  I truly can go on and on but to make a long story short, I would ABSOLUTELY book Action Events LA AND refer them to anyone looking for a wonderful way to entertain your guests. Whether its a bday party, work event, wedding, bar mitzvah, you name it, Action Events LA is the route to go!!! More...

We had an army themed party and the performers were well worth the money we spent! They were amazing and had the kids fully engaged the entire time they were there! They also made the birthday boy feel extra special. It was a great event and I would highly recommend them! More...

We used Action Events for my daughter's 6th Birthday.   The Performer's were great with the kids and everyone had a blast.  My daughter thought hanging out with Rey was the best thing in the world and sad that she had to go back to her base and couldn't come back the next day.  She's also pretty sure Rey will remember to use the tickle force if Kylo Ren causes any more trouble.Action Events was perfect and we'll definitely be using them again!

We had Batman and Captain America at our sons 5th birthday party. They were so professional and the kids loved them and the super hero training! It was a very hot day and they did such an amazing job staying in character and running around although they were drenched in sweat! Action Events LA is our go to for our kids birthday parties.

We hired Superman and Wonderwoman for my sons 4th birthday. I can't tell you enough how happy we were. It absolutely made the party. They were both punctual, had great banter, games and amazing personalities. It was affordable and the office staff communicated perfectly to get all of the details and even brought ideas to the table. It was the best all around and many guests requested business cards at the end. Thank you from the Lawson's! More...

Holy Moly!! What a great event! We had a Jedi Training at our community center, Rey and Kylo Ren were perfect, costumes, voices, all of it~ and kept 15 kids, ages 5-13, entertained with swordplay, games and training. Tim is a pleasure to work with and made sorting out the details effortless and fun. 5/5 can't wait to hire them again! Thank you!~* More...

For my sons 5th birthday we ordered two Ninjago characters and it was the best thing that I could have done for him.The characters hid behind trees and creeped into our party area at the park, surprising the birthday boy and all of our guests. They were so animated and did a phenomenal job at keeping the kids (and adults) entertained. I ordered the Ninjago Training Session so they basically taught the kids how to be ninja warriors. They also played with the kids, took pictures with us and so much more. My son did not want them to leave.Honestly, this was the highlight of the party and I will definitely book again anytime I need characters. More...

These guys were fantastic in every way!! We hired two knights, one to arrive at the front door and lead a small treasure hunt for my five year old and his friends. The second knight was guarding the treasure and sprang out of the garage to the delight of all the kids and parents. They dueled, they joked, they entertained kids and parents alike. Eventually one knight won and removed the curse from the other. They opened the chest and out came swords and a the holy grail. For the next 45 minutes these guys taught sword fighting, did games and duels with the kids. We had considered Medieval Times, but this was way better, way more personal, and way better priced. The experience from initial email to the actual booking was a little disorganized, but we had nothing to worry about and it worked out in the end. Great group! More...

My son was turning five and obsessed with King Arthur. He wanted to take all his friends to Medieval Times and I passed out at the price. Instead, we hired two knights for one hour and they provided an excellent, more intimate and more personal show!!  The knights had that special kind of humor that entertained the adults while going right over the kids heads. We did a treasure hunt and one knight stumbled over the word LEGO. The party was a big hit and we can't wait to get these guys back for Christmas as magic elves! Thank you!! More...

Kinda pricey but worth it! I live far from LA and I appreciated that they come out to where I am! In the past, I have worked with a lot of character companies have hosted a lot of parties. The ninjas that came were the best I ever worked with. Would defiantly hire them again! I had kids ages 3 to 10 and they were all entertained. It was awesome! Thank you Action Events for making my sons party special! More...

SPIDERMAN WAS AWESOME! We just had Spiderman at my son's 4th birthday and I cannot praise him enough. From the moment he arrived to his departure, he was running around doing summersaults, jumping onto ledges and landing in Spiderman's signature knee pose, and he never broke character. Even the older siblings and parents were blown away. He did great action shots during our cake cutting and after posed for all the pictures. The price was excellent for what we recieved. Please ask for this (his code is #32) Spiderman if you're looking to elevate your party to the next level! Thank you Action Events LA! More...

We had a party for my son for his 4th birthday and it was Star Wars theme.  We had Darth Vader, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker come!  The kids were in awe and enjoyed themselves the whole time.  They did Jedi training and kept all 30 kids engaged and active.  We love this company and were VERY impressed with how everything turned out.  I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for entertainment for children.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I booked Iron Man and Captain America for my son's birthday party and he and all his friends had the best time ever! Both superheroes were in character and completely professional from start to finish. Their costumes were also spot on and very impressive. The look on my son's face when they walked in was priceless. They were also amazing with interacting with all the kids and adults. Tim was also very accommodating over the phone with the booking process. Thank you, Action Events for making my son's birthday so special and memorable. More...

Actions Events was referred by a mom on Facebook and I couldn't be happier. From the minute they got there to the minute they left they remained in character and used every minute of there time to play with the kids. They're costumes are legit and well put together. They had patience with all the kids which were under 8 years old. I am more then satisfied with their service and will definitely use them again and again. Thank you for helping Jaxson and his friend make his birthday fun and memorable. More...

WOW what a Party. My Grand daughter had a Ninja Party and it HAD to be the Blue Ninja. BEST Ninja EVER!!!  We had 20+ kids in the backyard and The Blue Ninja was a TOTAL HIT.. He was funny and the kids could not get enough of him. Working with Action Events LA was easy and all the reviews that rave about them are true.. Our Ninja was hands down more than I was expecting, He was GREAT and that is putting it mildly.. Not only did the kids enjoy the Ninja workouts but their Parents were having as much fun watching.   Thank you Action Events for a Perfect party and I look forward to working with you every year.

Action events made my twins 6th birthday party the most epic Star Wars party! We had Obi wan and Darth Vader and the authenticity of the costumes was great.

I had Batman and Spider-Man at my son's birthday party. They did an absolutely amazing job. They entertained the entire party of both girls and boys throughout the whole time. They were early and communicative every step of the way. Definitely the highlight of our party! Will definitely use them again. I also highly recommend having two characters vs one since they did an amazing job playing off of one another. Can not recommend them enough! More...

My son was in heaven and so were his friends. Even the older siblings could not get enough.Their costumes were incredible. They were so prepared and engaged the kids to the very, very end. Even passing out cake.We could not have been happier and are so grateful to Spider-Man and Captain America for making our day so special.I am still giving out cards to guests for future events.These guys are fantastic!

Action Events LA's Tim Weske and I conspired for a week or two on how to make my daughter's 21st birthday party the most amazing "Harry Potter"-themed event possible, and the result was over the top!  After guests arrived at "Platform 9 3/4" for a cocktail party on the giant putting green, everyone was surprised to see the grand entrance of Harry Potter, Hermione, & Professor Snape!  The Action Events LA trio of actors arrived in character and soon they had more than 30 adults young and old in full fencing mode! From there, the procession was led by our own Professor Dumbledore into "Hogwarts School" to begin the feast in the Great Hall complete with floating candles.  We were so thrilled that Snape, Harry, and Hermione could stay for dinner and mingle with the guests! They were so believable in their roles that the party had an extra enchantment as if we all had stepped into J.K. Rowling's books and were at Hogwarts School!  I can't thank our wonderful actors and Tim enough, nor could I give a stronger recommendation for Action Events LA!  I can't wait to come up with my next party theme so I can hire Action Events LA again - Thank you guys!

We had our annual Halloween pumpkin patch and decided to go with Action Events LA! They were very cooperative and efficient. We chose to have Batman and Snow White, whom were excellent. Their costumes were so real and their acting was on point! The pricing is a bit high for an hour, but you get what you pay for = quality service. The whole process was very easy and everyone enjoyed the entertainment. More...

We just had our son's 8th birthday party with Action Events LA. We chose a ninjago theme. We had about 20 kids ages 3-11, boys and girls. I was extremely impressed with the actors, specifically in how they kept all the kids at super high energy the whole time, engaged in every fun game, ninja training action or treasure hunt they did!The space is very cool and engaging, we didn't even need decorations. The kids could run, play, laugh and scream - in fact they were encouraged to! There was plenty of space for all the kids and adults, food and gifts. All in all, one of the best birthdays we've ever done (and we have three kids, so that's out of 18 birthday parties so far!). My only two criticisms at all were that we were only given 15 min for set up and clean up each, and that there is no fridge or freezer to store food. But those were easily gotten around to still have a fantastic time!Thanks again Action Events LA for such an amazing time! More...

Action Events LA did it again! I have used this group 4 times on different occasions within the last 12 months. Never gets old. At our Independence Day picnic last year, our guests were treated to a swordfight between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. This year, we were invaded by pirates much to the delight of our seniors, their adult children, the grandchildren and the great grandchildren. Next year's event is already in the planning stages. And yes, Action Events will be part of it again. More...

I couldn't have been more blown away by the two knights that came to my son's 6th birthday party. They were professional, kept the children's attention the entire time, had the adults laughing and kept the party rolling.
My son is really into knights and the whole medieval world and these two absolutely brought it to life for him. My son can sometimes melt back into a crowd and the knights did a great job of making sure it was his special day, while also involving all of his friends too!
Couldn't give a higher recommendation!!!

These guys are amazing. We had a Star Wars-themed 7th Birthday party for our son at the Swordplay studio. It was a drop-off party and I saw these guys keep 25 6- and 7-year-old boys and girls entertained for two straight hours. They are the real deal! Amazing costumes, accuracy in portrayal, wonderful attention to detail, and they're hilarious. The kids were literally rolling on the floor laughing, engaged, excited. But the best part is that they're a bunch of total sweethearts! You can tell they love what they do, take pride and joy in putting on their show. They were a joy to work with. Gowdie made the booking process easy and tolerated our particular requests (our son HAD to have OLD luke in brown robes, not young Luke, for example) with remarkable kindness.The party activities were well planned out. They were able to handle the usual rambunctiousness among the kids with grace and ease. And our 7-year-old is convinced the real Obi Won, Old Luke, and Kylo Ren were at his party. A "Last Jedi" dream come true! Don't hesitate. Book Action Events for your Star Wars-loving kid. Our son started a craze in his class and now all the kids want their birthdays here. More...

My 6yo son's Star Wars birthday party was a huge success! The men who played the two chosen characters (good guy = Luke; bad guy = Darth Vader) were fantastic in their traditional character role, but they also made it silly and HILARIOUS. All the kids and parents laughed when Darth Vader was confused when he was too tall to get through the front door. Their light saber fighting was top notch and impressive. I received lots of compliments after the party. More...

Oh holy cow they are awesome! I had three power rangers come to my house. There were probably about 40 children and they kept them all engaged and excited for the full hour plus that they were here! All of the parents were raving about how good they were and how excited the kids were to be part of their adventure. I cannot stress enough how over the moon I was with the actors that they sent and how into their characters they were—great performance. I would not shop any further than this company, their performers are top notch and will not disappoint! More...

Overall, I'd highly recommend this company for your kid's birthday. The actors were funny and highly engaging. They were great value for the money we paid. Kids had so much fun and so did the parents. I had my son's birthday at their studio which wasn't the most convenient place to have a party (it's a fencing studio after all) but with a clean bathroom and plenty of seating, I was satisfied with it. We could bring our own food, drinks, and decor (bring your own tape) which I liked as well. More...

Definitely stop your shopping and hire from this company--you will not be disappointed!!! More...

Overall, I'd highly recommend this company for your kid's birthday. Pros:1. The actors were funny and highly engaging. Kids had so much fun and so did the parents. 2. Bring your own food & decor. You'll need tape to put this stuff up.3. Free parking in the lot or on the street.4. Clean bathroom & plenty of seats for around 30 guests.5. Ease of planning with Gowrie.Cons:1. Being at a fencing studio, it has a medieval look inside which might not match whatever decor you have. (We had a Star Wars themed party.) More...

From the initial correspondence to the actual party...everything was handled with upmost professionalism. We had Master Luke and Kylo Ren entertain the kids with light saber battle and learning the Jedi way. The kids were mesmerised and admired the performers so much. The parents were equally entertained. This was a Disney quality performance. Bravo and thank you for helping my daughter's party be so successful! So thankful! More...

We had my son's eighth (Ninjago) and ninth (Star Wars) birthday parties at Swordplay LA, and both were AMAZING. The kids were so excited and engaged from start to finish. You can sit back and relax while the fantastic actors keep the kids entertained and active. Here's a money-saving tip: You really don't need to bring decorations. The room already has a fun medieval decor...You don't need to "dress it up." We just put balloons on the parking lot gate and called it a day. For not much money, this place makes birthday parties easy and super fun. I couldn't recommend it more! More...

Had two Ninjago ninjas- Lloyd and Kai- for a 5 year old birthday party today. I remember one being Adam, I'm sadly forgetting the other gentleman's name! Suffice to say, they were AWESOME!!! They really played along so great with the kids and the birthday boy, Nash, in particular. The kids were quite wild with their foam ninja swords and the guys took it all in stride- such good dudes. Would DEFINITELY recommend them and use them again! More...

Every parent dreads that millionth kid birthday party they are forced to attend for the sake of their child's social life and they are secretly hoping alcohol will be served to ease the pain.... Look NO further for the perfect pain free and parent friendly entertainment that will have kids memorized and adults cracking up!  I hired them based on a recommendation by a friend for my son's Star Wars Birthday Party.  Pricing is based on number of characters and length of time. They had a fast response time for quotes and easy booking.  We hired an Obi Wan, Kylo Ren, and a Storm Trooper.  We were BLOWN AWAY!  First off, they were very professional, punctual, their accents and costumes were DEAD ON quality and detail.  The Obi was charismatic and commanded the kids attention well.  Kylo was tall, dark, mysterious and seriously sarcastic. They stayed true to character the entire party.  They were AMAZING with the 20+ kids and the BEST part was that they were HILARIOUS!  It was a close call on who had more fun, the kids or the parents.  They had that kid friendly adult Star Wars humor that made it the best party EVER for Star Wars fans!  They teach the kids to use the Force against the dark side, play Jedi training games and if you choose they let the birthday boy find a treasure chest of light sabers (highly recommend the cheap $2-3 light sabers bulk can be found on amazon)!  The birthday boy felt so special and was very proud of his training!  They are also legit swordsmen and did a theatrical light saber fight that was so impressive that everyone took a step or two back.  At the end they awarded the birthday boy with a metal (cue 'Metal of Bravery' Episode IV: A New Hope).  They were worth every cent!  Would highly recommend them and will be using them for other parties in the future! May the Force be with you! More...

Ninjgo Lloyd and Garmadon did an amazing job entertaining the kids for an hour and a half.  They captivated their attention which is a rarity with 8 year-olds.  Love it! Thank you! Will definitely return next year! More...

Batman and Batgirl were a hit at my son's 5th birthday party. They were engaging and energetic despite the party being on the hottest morning of the summer so far. Communication with the company was easy, pricing totally fair and worth every penny. Will use again for sure! More...

Just had a Captain America theme party and kids enjoyed seeing Captain America! He was really good entertaining kids and playing games. He was on time which is a big plus and kept kids happy specially my two birthday boys. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star is for 3 reasons; captain wasn't shaved, dirty costume and a little stinky. Other then that he was awesome and very handsome. Lol More...

Yesterday we had a Harry Potter themed birthday party for my 7 year old.  We had Professor Snape and Ginny Weasley. They engaged the kids and amused the parents.  They did a duel, potion making, and spell casting.  I mean, what can be better than dry ice!  They were super professional and amazing at their characters.  My daughter couldn't sleep last night, she was so excited.  And so was I! Hire them.  They are great! More...

The green and pink power rangers came to my son's 5th birthday party and I truly cannot say enough good things. They were organized, punctual, entertaining, fun and authentic. All of the kids LOVED them, especially my son, who asked me several times after they left if they could come back again. They know exactly how to put on a good party and make the birthday kid feel special. I truly cannot recommend this company enough. More...

Worth every penny.  We had Luke And Darth Vader come and train 5 yr old Jedi with pool noodles with a big battle at the end.  Made my boy feel super special when he received the Jedi medallion and wore it for days after.  Really professional and well done.  Costumes were on point as well. Highly recommend More...

I wish I could give 1000 stars.Everything about this company is amazing. We hired Batman and Joker for my son's 4th birthday. They were able to engaged all the kids and keep the parents entertained as well.  So many parents came up to as asking where we found them. My son has been talking about Batman at his birthday for 2 weeks now. So Professional. So easy to work with. Affordable and worth every penny. Thank you Action Events for an unforgettable birthday party. More...

We hired Ninjas today for our son's 5th birthday. They guys were FANTASTIC. They were engaged and patient with the kids and even had a few jokes for adults at the party. All communication with the company before and leading up to our event was effortless. Many kids left today saying they wanted ninja parties for their next birthday. I could not recommend Action Events more and will definitely use these guys in the future. Thanks for making our son's day so memorable! More...

If I could give 10 Stars here I would. Action events was absolutely amazing Gowrie made the entire process super easy and that reassured us that we had already made the right decision.Batman, Superman and the Joker showed up and they were perfect in character the entire time. Their costumes were top-notch, their character traits were spot-on. They came for my 7 year olds birthday and entertained everyone from 3 years old to 73 years old equally. We've never spent this much money on a birthday but we would totally do it again it was worth every penny to see everybody so delighted and the kids giving their undivided attention!Superman called me a few minutes before the party started to deliver the gift boxes and go over a few details and they did everything perfectly!

Where do I begin I can't say enough good things about Action Events LA.. We just had our son's Ninja Turtle party there and I want to throw him another party there this weekend since everyone including the parents had such a great time.. :) The booking process was seamless... I contacted Gowrie about 5 months before the actual party month and since it was so far away they didn't know the availability right then, she gave me an estimated time when she would know and actually contacted me 2 weeks before that given time and we booked our time slot... She was beyond accommodating and an extreme pleasure to work with... We arrived for the party to set up and within 10 minutes one of the characters (Michaelangelo) was out to greet the kids that were there already and was in true character form, he was GREAT!!! Then Raphael came in and our son was just star struck and in heaven to be with 2 of 4 turtles, he even called our son his "Mini-Me", too cute... As the party went on Shredder made his entrance in and it was like time stood still, all the kids and I think some of the adults were in awe... From there they did games, turtle training, the treasure hunt (highly recommend this, it got all the kids involved, especially the ones who were scared at first), a duel between our son and Shredder where our son beat Shredder and was given a medal for his victory and then he got to open the treasure chest and hand out the mini plushie turtles we had in there and what I appreciated the most during this part was that  Shredder made it very clear for the kids to remain seated and you get what you get, you can trade with someone else...  All 3 characters stayed in true character form and even helped out with handing out pizza and the cake, they were beyond helpful... I think my favorite part was when our little guy gave each one of them a colored picture of each of them he had worked on for a few days before and signed his name so they would remember him... They never broke character and said they would take it back with them to their sewer or lair, it was actually my favorite part of the whole day how sweet and genuine they were with our son... All I know is that I could go on and on about all of them, they truly made my son's birthday absolutely perfect and the ease of it all was perfect for me... :) I can't wait for next year, I will definitely be booking with them again, our son already said he wants all 4 Turtles and Shredder... ;)  and I couldn't be happier, I know he will remember his 5th birthday for ever... :D More...

Luke Skywalker & Darth Vader did an incredible job for my son's 5th birthday! The fact that they could keep 12- 5 year olds engaged and well behaved for an hour impressed all of us parents. They arrived early to the event, were professional to work with and are truly talented entertainers. My son reported that his favorite part of his party was when he "convinced Darth Vader to stop being bad-  "don't worry mom-he promised."   It's one of my sweetest memories of his birthday. More...

Found this company randomly while  doing a google search for a last minute bday party and I could not be happier that I did. We hired two ninjas to come for a five year old birthday party ( two days before the event) They were a major hit. Very professional; they called 15 minutes before they arrived to give us a heads up and asked how they should enter the party. Kept all the kids busy for an hour which is not easy to do.. More...

This is definitely the best place to hire! I have 4 kids so I have had a large share of experiences using different places and characters and I am very impressed with their services. I found them on google and decided to test them out since my son is a big Captain America fan and likes the Flash as well and is always having them battle, I thought this would be the perfect gift for his 6th Birthday Party. Gowrie was amazing! she is on top of it and and extremely helpful with suggestions and most importantly reminders very pleased with her customer service skills. The day of the party both Captain America and Flash arrived minutes before to go over details and what I wanted them to accomplish, their entrance was pretty amazing, totally in character, which i loved, and they remain in character the whole time, they were funny and engaged with all the kids, even the older kids that think they are too big for this kind of stuff were entertained, which was neat, They went above and beyond. I like how I had picked Captain America to win and how it centered on that, my son was trilled! towards the end he got to challenge Captain America himself and defeated him and that is all he has been talking about, All the parents were impressed with them and the party was a complete success which is something we all want as parents. I also like that they did everything they said they would and even though the timing was a bit off they was not rushing anything in the past i have had character that on the dot they are trying to leave even when they have not gotten done everything they said they would which is sometimes a headache and you end up feeling like they were there more for the money than them enjoying what they do, so i can definitely say that these two LOVE what they do and you can clearly see it as you want someone to want to make your child and guest as happy as you do. If I could give them more stars i would. and will be using this place for all future events, no need to look for another.Thank you all!!! More...

I based my booking on yelp reviews. And I booked two characters (blue and red power dinocharge rangers). Gowrie was very helpful and booking was very easy. The power rangers came early to pick up items that got placed in their treasure chest. Very professional. Very entertaining for both kids (5 yr olds) and adults. If I had another event, I would definitely book this company again! More...

We used Action Events for my son's 6th birthday party.  We had a Pokemon theme party and had Ash, Brock, and Misty come and take the kids around the park we were at.  They trained to find Pokemon and they knew pretty much everything about Pokemon!  They searched for a treasure box at the end and had medal ready for the birthday boy.  I just love how the 3 of them kept the kids engaged and it was a lot of fun!  I highly recommend Action Events!  I hope to use them again in the future.  Gowrie is the manager and she was very easy to work with.  She responded back to emails quickly, followed up the week of and was very friendly in her emails.  It was SO easy to plan a party with them!

Hands down the best experience and the most fun we've had .  We were celebrating my sons 5th birthday and they went above and beyond to make the day extra special. The characters interacted so well with the age group given and kept them fully engaged and excited . Not only did the kids enjoy them but the adults had a blast with with so much laughter. We requested for three characters and all of them gave us some special and hilarious moments that we will remember for a long time. Most Definitely you will not be disappointed. More...

They were extremely professional and the kids had an amazing time.  We were concerned that Darth Vader may be scary to some of the children but they found a way to make him funny and approachable.  It was a terrific experience and I highly recommend using them in the future.

Great great great. I have utilized the service 2 times in 1 month.  They are that good! I made the mistake of not confirming booking info for my last event this past weekend. I literally called their office 20 minutes before closing on the Friday prior to my event. Gowrie was graceful enough to assist me in the total last minute. Big deal because my event was about 16 hours away and she hadn't confirmed with her staff and I thought my daughters b day party was going to be ruined because of daddy's lack of booking. But they took off their hats and pulled the rabbit out.  Gowrie confirmed the character was available. Took all my info and payment info and literally had it all squared away with in 10-15 minutes. Day of event:My character shows up. Kids instantly all start to rush. This is for both separate events. 1st event I had batman and Spider-Man. Best entrance ever!!! Batman had the kids going. Then Spider-Man appeared on my roof top (this was something I requested to batman before he suited up and made their entrances) kind of dangerous but they pulled it off. Total hit. 2nd event. Snow White has all the kids- boys and girls involved with face painting, meet n greets, picture times. Total hit!!! Both events the characters had both the boys and girls entertained. My fear was super hero party and the girls would be left out. Not the case. And sage for Snow White!!! By the way. VERY IMPORTANT TO MENTION:They where not looking at watch the whole time. They went above and beyond. The costumes are great too. Not the cheesy ones. They looked great! Don't hesitate. Book them. Your child will love it!!! Thank you the team for making memories for my kids and guest to enjoy for years to come! More...

My daughter (and my husband) wanted a Star Wars theme party for her 6th birthday. We're all very big fans on Star Wars so we were a little picky when it came to choosing the entertainment. Action Events LA came highly recommended by another Star Wars obsessed friend so we hired them (after a little side research-I'm Type A, what can I say?). Action Events LA was out of this galaxy! Gowrie at Action Events LA was easy to communicate with (entirely through email). The day of my daughter's party, the characters called me to let me know they were around the corner from the park. From the second they rounded the corner, they were in character! They had an amazing, interactive story and entertained around 30 kids for over an hour! They had a series of games, were quick on their feet (especially with the older kids who weren't as easy to convince) and ended the party with the Jedi Oath and my daughter opening a special treasure chest using the Force which contained light sabers for everyone (which we provided). The thing I liked most about Action Events LA was I asked for a less dramatic version of Star Wars (for the younger guests) while keeping authentic (for all the adult fans) and they pulled it off. Every family had something positive to say and some parents even said it was the best Star Wars characters they've ever seen. I think being a parent that lives in Los Angeles, that says it all!

We had Captain America, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman at my son's 3rd birthday party this weekend and I felt I had to post a review. They knocked it out of the park. Gowrie was great and super easy with the booking, but even with all the rave reviews you worry when booking characters. Well, I can attest the reviews are all well deserved. These guys were fabulous!! They really engaged the kids and made the party!! Not only were the kids impressed (perhaps they're an easier audience), all the parents commented on how professional, fun and engaging our heroes were. Use these guys!! You'll be happy. More...

As always and second year in a row I am astounded at the professionalism and the pride your actors take when they arrive and put on their show.  I am a life time patron of Action Events LA.  Anyone looking for actors or characters contact them and set it up right away.  I set my son's party up two to three weeks in advance.  The morning of I wanted to push back the party an hour later.  I contact Action Events and with in minutes she had it done for me.  I am beyond pleased.  My daughter is almost two and I will being planning more parties with Action Events. Thanks again for a great party.  And for all you dad's, I think I get more excited seeing the look on my kids face then they get excited having the characters show up. Well worth every penny and more. More...

I had a handful of bad experiences with 4 and 5 star businesses on Yelp so when I found Action Events LA and saw that it had many great reviews, I was a bit suspicious.  Are all the reviews from actual satisfied customers?  Is this business really this good?Yes, Action Events LA is deserving of the 5 stars and all the praise.      I contacted them to get pricing info for a Star Wars themed birthday party for my 5 yr old.  My contact person was Gowrie.  She responds quickly, is easy to work with and friendly.  The whole process was smooth and straight forward.  At the very last minute I decided to add one more character to my party and Gowrie was able to accommodate, super easy.  She's awesome!The actors who came to our party surpassed by far all of our expectations.  We were so impressed with them, their costumes and manners and professionalism.  They were not only great actors but kept a big group of preschoolers engaged and entertained.  They treated the children well.  They were  professional, friendly and likable.  Everyone loved them.I highly recommend them.

Everyone from the adults to kids were impressed by their performance. They were the hit of the party and kept the kids entertained the whole time. It was a surprise for my son's 5th birthday party and now he won't stop talking about how cool it was that darth and Luke showed up to his party! We will definitely be booking them again next year and recommend to anyone looking for performers. If you are hesitant in booking with them just do it!

This review is long overdue.  We were not sure what to do for my son's  7th birthday.  Of course during the craze of  the Star Wars release and both my husband and son being huge fans it seemed the best idea to have a Star Wars theme birthday.  Everything was perfect & ran smoothly.  Obi-Wan and Darth Vader showed up & from the moment they began walking towards the house they were in full character!The kids were entertained, it wasn't just a performance  but an interactive  show. Even the neighbors  came out to see. KEY POINTS*Easy to book*Reasonable price*Arrived on time *Stayed character*Interactive FUN Show*Super professionalThis was by far the best experience with this type of company. I know we have already been recommending them to everyone we know. There is no doubt in my mind that we will be using them again for other events in the future. More...

This is our second year with a party featuring ActionEvents LA performers. Last year was Darth Maul & Anakin. This year Darth Vader and Luke (Jordan). It was perfect from start to finish. The actors are such pros, they know exactly how to engage the kids - how to soothe the nervous ones and calm the sugared up/overexcited ones. The parents were charmed and the kids were riveted. Personally, I'm hoping my son is still into Star Wars next year because it's a complete sure-bet for the perfect party. More...

At our Independence Day picnic last year, our guests were treated to a swordfight between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. In October of 2014, pirates were a big  hit at our networking meeting for healthcare professionals from the South Bay, Long Beach, Los Angeles and more.  This year, our Independence Day barbecue was again  invaded by pirates much to the delight of our seniors, their adult children, the grandchildren and the great grandchildren. Next year's event is already in the planning stages. And yes, Action Events will be part of it again. More...

This review is LONG overdue!  My little girl turned 6 this year and she loves medieval knights and swords.  Pretty cool if you ask me! (Sorry, but no more Frozen parties!) Bouncy houses only entertain so much, so I thought I should find performers this time around.  Medieval knights aren't all that easy to find- at least ones who look and play the part well.  Let me tell you, these knights are legit! They captured the kids' attention from the very start, they're hilarious, they never broke character and they made each kid feel like they got their very own experience.  Moms were all too happy to see handsome men sword fighting while the dads were all to happy that their kids were entertained for a full hour.  It's now been two months since our party and we still receive compliments on how exciting and entertaining our party was.  Get in contact with Gowrie.... fantastic customer service, quick correspondence and professionalism... you won't be disappointed with Action Events!

It's always difficult to determine what is a wise financial "must" for birthday parties! Parents can go over the top and spend a months salary for a two hour event or pinch pennies and have bored kids! My advise ..... Skip the cake make your guests sit on the ground just don't forego action events la! My son had a cowboy party and our "cowboys" we're above and beyond! They were funny entertaining engaging and worth every penny! I don't do reviews unless I'm greatly impressed and here it is! Thanks for a great day actioneventsla More...

We had three Power Rangers for my daughter's 5th birthday and they were AMAZING! The kids had a blast. The adults were riveted. And, the three Samurais were so incredibly easy and helpful. I can't say enough about them... I will hire them every year from now on:-) More...

Another stellar review for this fantastic company! We had Luke Skywalker, Obi Wan, and a Clone Trooper this past weekend for my son's 6th birthday party, and they were absolutely amazing. These guys kept 30 kindergarteners COMPLETELY entertained for an hour, and the kids STILL wanted more. I've seen my share of birthday party characters over the years, and these guys are truly top notch. Not only is the talent great, but Gowrie's communication is always prompt and professional. No need to look any further, Action Events is the go to company for party entertainment. More...

These guys are amazing! I booked two ninjas for a six-year-old's birthday party and they entertained the kids for a solid, action-packed hour. The costumes were professional and these guys were obviously trained in martial arts. Either that or they were freakishly athletic. They were prompt and good at coordinating the ninja "surprise" attack. The only slightly negative thing was they had a comedy bit about beheadings (and they WERE dressed exactly like ISIS terrorists) and all the parents were like, "Yikes!" so maybe they should revise their routine to fit current times. Overall, it was excellent entertainment and value. More...

We gave our son's a 5th and 9th Birthday party TMNT and found Action Events thru google.  We booked Ninja Turtles Leonardo and Donatello and I must say they did an amazing job!  The kids and the adults were so entertained.  They were on time and very nice to everyone.  The best part was that they were definitely in character from entrance to ending.  They were able to manage 20 or more kids without a problem.  They made our party Turtle-ly Awesome and the kids will remember them forever!!!  Thank you Gowrie for coordinating and the Action Events LA TMNT team!

Yes, yes, yes!! Book them now. ASAP. They sent two power rangers to my 5 year old's birthday party and I couldn't fathom how they would keep 30 kids entertained for 90 minutes. But - they did! From their grand entrance searching out the birthday boy, to their sword fight, to training the kids to become Power Rangers, I could not have asked for better entertainment. The prices are very reasonable and Gowrie is awesome and super helpful in making sure you get exactly what you want. Book them now! You won't regret it. More...

"Best. Party. Ever." That's what my 6-year-old daughter said half-way through her Indiana Jones birthday party today. We decided to have our party at the Swordplay LA studio and it was great. Easy to get in and set-up and even easier to clean up and just go home when you're done. The actors were GREAT. We had Indiana Jones and the Cairo Swordsman (who stole the show.) But both guys were fantastic and the kids loved the. Booking the party was a piece of cake thanks to Gowrie. We did it all via email and her instructions made the party a breeze. All the kids had a blast. I highly recommend having a treasure hunt at the end of the party. The kids loved that. We plan to be back next year. More...

Just had my sons 5th birthday party at a small park.  Luke & Darth Vader were amazing!!! I was so impressed with them. Kept the kids entertained for an hour and a half!!

I love this company!!  I first found them when I was looking for Star Wars characters for my daughter's 6th birthday.  We had Padme, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vadar.  My daughter is a Star Wars freak so I was really surprised when she began to cry at the sight of Darth Vadar.  Both Padme and Luke were able to talk her down and defeat Darth and bring him back to the good side.  Her face lit up when she received the special Jedi medallion they had for her.I also love this company because they have a Jedi Summer Camp.  My daughter was in heaven the whole time.  Normally when I drop my daughter off somewhere I get some tears, or "but Mom I'll miss you."  Not here.  When I dropped her off she waived goodbye with a smile on her face.  She can't wait to go to Jedi Camp again.  We live in West Hills, that's not close to Burbank.  But she loved it so much I would happily make that drive again.

I called Action Events fairly last minute ( a few days before our party) to set up a Jake and the Neverland Pirates visit.  The booking was easy and the two characters came on time and were very entertaining.  They played games with the kids and culminated the afternoon in a treasure hunt for which I provided goodies.  The parents were also entertained and wanted to hang around them instead of socializing.  I found them to be extremely professional and one of a kind.  Most guests commented that these were the best pirate characters they had ever seen at a party.  Thank you Action Events for making my son's special day extra special.

We just moved to our neighborhood two weeks ago and I needed to plan my 4yo son's birthday party. He is really into Jake and the Neverland Pirates, so we hired two pirates from Action Events. The booking was so easy.  Gowrie asked all the right questions and made sure the guys knew that Lincoln loved Jake.  They added tidbits of facts and details from Jake into their story line.  It was FLAWLESS!  Tony and Jason were our pirates and I am certain we got the A team.  They were so professional, easy going, and absolutely amazing with the kids.  They captivated each and every guest from age 2 to age 42.  The adults could have sat back and had conversation the whole time, but many of us were so caught up in the entertainment, we joined in on the fun.  The kids were cracking up and entertained the entire time.  We had the party at our neighborhood park and they commanded the space, had the kids all over the place.  It was pirate birthday party madness!  Lincoln, the birthday boy, was convinced they were real pirates.  I was in a jam... just moved... in over my head in boxes... had a party to plan in less than a week... and with one phone call my entire party worries disappeared.  Truly I put all my eggs in one basket, and it was the RIGHT basket!  Thank you Gowrie!  And thank you Jason & Tony!  (I mean Cashew and Captain Greenbean!)  Lincoln will remember this his entire life. I'm certain of it! More...

My friend and I were planning our sons'  joint birthday party when I saw a segment on a local program featuring the studio.  I looked up the site, emailed Gowrie and voila "Jedi Academy" would welcome in our sons' 6th and 7th birthdays. The day arrived and Matt and Dustin -- excuse me, Hans Solo and Darth Vader -- showed up and the rest is sure to be a large part of our boys' history.  These two professionals not only get into character, I saw them practicing their sword fighting in our driveway, they actually like kids and are stellar with them.  The adults were as rapt by the performance as the kids because Hans and Darth threw in antics for our amusement too.  After taking their Jedi Oath, the boys were wielding sabers and exhausting themselves (exhausting kids is the goal of every children's party I throw) running around our living room and yard.  There were two scraped knees (there has to be a little blood and a bump or two or it isn't a party)  and every kid left smiling and sweaty.  These folks are professionals and assure a fun time for all.

We held our son's 5th birthday party with Superman, Batman, and Spiderman this past weekend at the Swordplay studio.  The performers were professional and were superb in their performances and also with the kids.  From start to end, the superheroes had our group of kids fully engaged and entertained.  The adults also thoroughly enjoyed the show.  Many of the guests commented that the party was by far the best--all thanks to the wonderful antics and show put on by the performers. Booking was simple and all information was communicated quickly and clearly.  Their prices are very reasonable.  Overall, this company is a pleasure to work with. More...

Found and hired 2 Power Rangers (Red and Yellow) for my b/g twins' 5th birthday party in January, from this company. The correspondence with Gowrie arranging the characters was always professional and prompt. The day of the party, I met with the Red Ranger (not in costume yet) outside the house and briefly chatted about what's going on at the house. The two appeared right on scheduled time and they were so great, engaging the kids and making them (and us!) laugh and keeping them busy. My kids want to have the come back again for their next birthday!! More...

We went to a ninja birthday party this weekend, with a group of approximately 20 6-8 year olds.  It was one the best parties I've ever been to.  The ninjas were impressively athletic, and extremely entertaining for kids and adults.  We saw awesome fighting skills.  The activities were fun for all ages and skill levels and filled a decent chunk of time.  I can't comment on the price, since I was just a guest, but I would be willing to pay a few limbs for this kind of entertainment.  Now I'm thinking about hiring these ninjas to officiate my wedding, that has to be legal in California, right?

We hired an amazing team of superheroes (spiderman, captain America and Batman) for our  sons fourth birthday party.  Wow! They truly made the party a smashing success! My son was elated! He and my daughter spent at least 45 minutes talking about how much fun they had, and how funny batman was.  The guys had the children completely engaged for about an hour, laughing and playing along. They are so believable, my son (4) and daughter (6) are convinced they were the real deal.  We're super happy and will use them again without a doubt!! The whole process starting with the booking and ending with the performance was absolutely seamless! Very professional and worth every penny. Impressive enough to make me write my first yelp review ever :) More...

Had a Star Wars party for my four year old son yesterday. All i can say is money well spent! Luke was awesome with the kids. At first i was a little worried cause it was like herding cats but Luke had them enthralled and listening within minutes. Then Darth or dad as Luke called him showed up. He was great too! I dont know how he survived in the heat but he was a champ! Ill never forget the look on my sons face as he truly beleived he was using the force to protect his friends. I can't say enough abt them, great job! More...

The previous reviews do not lie....these guys are fabulous!  Hired 2 ninja to entertain the kids for an hour and a half at my son's ninth birthday party.  From start to finish, they were professional, funny, and put on a great show for the kids.  Both the kids and adults were completely mesmerized by their performance.  You definitely get your money's worth (and more).  My son got an honorary medal for "defeating" one of the ninja in a fencing battle.  The theatrics were fine for the older kids, but some of the little ones in attendance (i.e., 5-6 year olds) were a bit intimidated and didn't participate.  That was okay with me.  I expected that, but just a tip that the longer performance is better suited for older kids.  I've seen so many types of kids party entertainment over the years and this was by far, the highest-quality and most professional I have ever experienced.  The ninja were dressed authentically from head to toe.  They arrived early and started their performance exactly on time.  This was a huge relief for me.  LIke I said, they are extremely professional.I recommend them highly and can understand why they receive consistently stellar reviews.  One of the parents told me that she was so impressed that she was planning to hire them for her son's next party.Thanks so much, Action Events LA!  You were the highlight of the party and made my son's birthday a day to truly remember.

Thanks to Swordplay, my son had an absolutely unforgettable 8th birthday party!We chose the Star Wars themed fencing party at the studio, on April 27, and great fun was had by all for the entire hour-and-a-half of awesome training and games.  As performers, both Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader (who made a thrilling surprise entrance) were fun, humorous, and excellent performers and fencing teachers.  All of the birthday guests were rapt throughout the party, and simply had so much fun.  I need to mention that Gowrie, the event planner, made the whole thing so easy to organize as well.  Thank you!I highly recommend this great place, with amazing performers, without hesitation. Thank you very much to all at Swordplay! More...

I couldn't be happier! Princess Leia and Darth Vader stopped by our birthday party and kept 15 kids ages 3-5 entertained for an hour. The parents seemed to enjoy the show just as much, if not more, than the kids. The interactions between the performers were great, they were professional and seemed to enjoy themselves.The games they arranged for the kids were fun and age appropriate. The sword fight was exciting and the kids all got to take turns fighting the characters. I loved that they stayed to sing Happy Birthday and take pictures with everyone! I would hire them again in a heart beat! More...

I hired 3 Super Heroes from Sword Play for my son's 4th birthday party. They were AMAZING and exceeded my expectations. Planning with Swordplay was very easy - top notch professionals with great customer service all around. I got everything I asked for.The event itself was a hit. The Super Heroes arrived at the party promptly. They were really easy to talk to, highly spirited with great attitudes and they really took charge. As a parent a bit nervous about throwing a big party, this was a great comfort. The Super Heroes were able to handle 25+ kids easily keeping everyone fully entertained, including all the girls. The Super Heroes even stayed later to sing Happy Birthday with my son. Sword Play was key to making my son's 4th birthday party a success.  My son and his friends had a blast!!! More...

This review is for performance held at my kids' birthday party held on 12/17/11. I know it's super late to post this review...We planned on having the entertainment done in our backyard but due to unexpected rain we moved inside the house. Although it got very chaotic, TJ and the "dragon princess" (I forgot her name =/) were able to handle the kids. They were SO AWESOME and I couldn't thank them enough for being spontaneous on everything! Not only the kids but the adults also enjoyed watching them and participating with their little games. I didn't get to watch everything but heard a lot of great feedbacks from our guests (not a single complaint). I would definitely recommend your company to others. Also, I may have a pirate themed party in the future therefore I will most likely hire you guys again! More...

A Star Wars themed Jedi party at a Fencing Studio was really unique!SwordPlay Fencing Studio was the setting for a birthday party for our friend's son who was turning five years old.   When we walked in the warehouse/studio one of the SwordPlay instructors was dressed as Luke Skywalker.  After all the kids arrived Luke took some time to talk to the kids and explain the Jedi dos and don'ts.  The Jedi light saber birthday party is a good way for young kids to learn the art of fencing in a really fun format.When Darth Vader appeared through the door in full costume I think that had everyone's attention.   The kids and adults were entertained as Luke and Darth interacted and then they instructed the kids on various things.  Once they had gone through the safety instruction the kids were given their own light sabers.  I think the instructors did a great job because I didn't witness one mishap.   There was one rascally little kid who walked toward me and was acting like he was going to hit me over the head with his light saber, but he changed his mind thank goodness.If my son was five years old I would definitely think about having a birthday party here.  Heck, I wouldn't mind taking a few fencing classes here myself.

Went to a Jedi Party at the location.  The place was INCREDIBLY hot.  It was a converted garage decked out with fake bricks and shields etc.  Strangely they even had what looked like a real sword at the door that my child tried to grab on the way out that made me nervous.  The guys were really nice and really in character, but had a LONNNNG banter that was much too long for any four year old's party.  My suggestion is to consider the age and change script appropriately.  Also, one of the guys told the birthday boy (jokingly) that he was going to "steal his cake" and that made the little dude cry.  Again, age appropriate issue.Anyway really cool guys and a great party, but probably better if had at a private party rather than in their chamber of heat.

I've hired Obi Wan and Darth Vader twice, once for my 40th birthday party, and again for my 7 year old son's birthday. They are that great, and deserve repeat business. They were cracking up everyone at both parties, as they are not only action, but comedy also! Their swordsmanship is top notch. It's like having a medieval times type of show at your house or party venue. I will likely hire them again with different characters to mix it up a bit as they have quite a selection to choose from.

We used Action Events yesterday for my son's 6th and daughter's 4th birthday party. It was a block party with a Star Wars Carnival theme, so when I found this company I thought it would be the perfect addition to our party. I was right! These guys were AMAZING! I am a pretty tough critic, but I can't find any complaints at all. They arrived early and the performer who was acting as Darth Vader (not sure of his actual name) came first dressed as himself and scoped out the party in order to find a location to hide the treasure box. He got the lightsabers from me and we arranged when I would have all of the children into the backyard so that they could make their entrance. Obi Wan arrived first and he was engaging right away. The children were really engaged and thought he was a real Jedi. Darth Vader arrived on the side of the house and I am still not sure how Darth Maul arrived as all of a sudden I see him sitting in the audience, but I know that he did not come from the front as we would have seen him. The show itself was AWESOME and seemed to last quite awhile. Afterward, they took the kids on the treasure hunt and then taught them some Jedi moves with their lightsabers. Luckily, our backyard is very shaded, but once we were in the front, I know that they guys had to be melting--especially Vadar, but they were all SO gracious posing for several pictures. I finally gave them water and sent them on their way, before they continued to get surrounded for more pictures. I cannot recommend them enough and if we ever have another party that we could incorporate this company--we definitely will. Also, Gowrie was wonderful to work with and very professonal. Thank you, Action Events for helping to make our party a HUGE success! More...

I hired two swordsmen/pirates to put on a show in the midst of a play I wrote for a party.  Without much of a rehearsal, they stepped in and did an amazing job.  It was an all women party and they flirted with the girls, made jokes, and filled their sword fight with action.  It was such a rousing success that they have been demanded for this year's party too (Arabian Nights theme this time around).I've read other reviews that say they are a bit "pricey" but my response is, you get what you pay for and quite simply, this outfit is awesome.  Also, these are real stuntman and women and dealing with danger (the swords may be dulled but they aren't fake).  It's worth every penny to see these guys in action.  I highly recommend this group for anyone who wants to add action, humor, and spectacle to their party or event!

Had a birthday party for my 6 year old, star wars theme. It was fantastic! The men who played the Luke skywalker & darth vader were funny, great with the kids, excellent fencing demo (with lightsabers). The costumes were top notch. The guy who played Luke looks JUST LIKE young Mark Hamill, maybe even a bit cuter. The space was a great party space, lots of places to sit and tables for food, bathroom right in room, so no escorting kids. I'm not good with reviews but I would recommend SwordPlay anytime! One small complaint was it was very warm in the space, this was May. There was a small A/C unit but did very little... Probably not a good place in the heat of summer, but the space has large garage type doors that could be open which might help. Not a big enough of a negative to take a star away though. I felt so bad for the Darth Vader he must have been roasting, but he was totally professional never out of character! More...

We had a Jedi Training party for my son's 5th birthday party and the kids are still talking about it. They had so much fun.  We had Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader perform.  They were very funny, telling jokes that the adults were able to enjoy (including asking me, the birthday boy's Mom, if I've ever gone to the Dark Side because once you go to the Dark Side, you  never go back) and then also silly jokes for the little ones (think fart type jokes).  And Darth Vader wasn't too scary, so none of the kids were afraid.The kids learned how to be Jedi's and then challenged Darth Vader to decide who would win the treasure once it was found.  It was cute. It was all the kids against Darth Vader: who could make the best wookie noises & who could win at Yoda Says (Simon says).  When the kids won, Darth Vader had to give his special medallion to the birthday boy (which later allowed him to open the treasure chest that they hunted for after receiving several clues).  The treasure chest was filled with toy lightsabers that I provided for the kids and each child received one, and then were trained how to use them.  Then, they lined up and tried out their new moves on Darth Vader. They had a blast!  Then, the characters even stayed around to sing happy birthday while we did the birthday cake, and to pose for photos with all the kids.  It was a little pricey, but definitely worth the memories that were created that day!  My son is still wearing his special medalion and thinks that it has special powers to make him strong and I'm getting messages from all the parents daily about how much fun everyone had.They really did a great job and I would highly recommend them.

A Knight and a Dragon Princess came for my niece and nephew's birthday party and they were great!For one whole hour, they entertained the kids, did the games, performed a sworfight did a skit... Even though they had to improvise due to the sudden appearance of wind and rain. "to the castle!" said the knight.Only the bigger kids were able to enjoy the entertainment fully... The younger ones were busy with the building blocks. Which is cool coz then ALL the kids were entertained last night!You provide the "treasure" or the party favors and they'll provide the treasure hunt!It was a bit pricier than the other entertainment, but they were there for a full hour and there were two of them.Costumes were amazing, the accent was cool, there were enough references to keep the older people entertained too!They arrived on time and allowed for photo opportunities.
