Kids laughed like crazy!

We had the "Mixed Nuts" entertain our group of children in the 3-5 age group while parents were in a meeting. The kids LOVED it! Caregivers who were there loved it too! They said they haven't seen the children enjoy themselves so much in the past! Thank you!

Half Pint (Lori) Made our Daughter's Carnival Party Amazing!

For our Daughter's 7th Birthday she wanted a Carnival Party We knew we wanted to have a clown and face painting for sure and called Touch of Magic Entertainment, That was the best decision we could have made We hired Half Pint to come and perform her act for the kids and do the face painting as well and the kids went wild for her, as did the adults at the party she was AMAZING and to this day people are still talking about that party and the clown and it was almost a year ago. We can't thank her enough for making the party that much more exciting and wonderful!! If your looking to have a fun entertaining party shes a must have!

Thank you just doesn't say enough!!!!!!!!

You guys are great. I felt confident after talking to Lori on the phone, and then everything went exactly the way she said it would. Even down to the neighbor who actually did start mowing his lawn when the show began! I though she was joking when she said that it happens during outdoor birthday parties. It was a great show, and the magic and balloons were exceptional. Tatum's last words before he finally fell asleep tonight were "I really loved my party!". So, if I had a better phrase, I'd say it. But instead, I'll have to settle for THANK YOU!

Great value! Best face painting EVER.

I hired these guys for our Night to Unite block party last year and WOW! She was fast, funny, and made the most amazing faces I have ever seen, including really awesome monster faces for my 9 & 12 yr old sons. As a parent who worries about these things, it was really reassuring to know that the products they use are all FDA food quality grade products. If it's safe to eat, then I know it's safe to put on my kids' faces.

Lorri came to our daughter's 7th birthday last night. The kids howled with laughter at her comedy routine. She was wonderful with the kids and was great at handling 15 spirited little girls! Lorri did a fantastic job with face painting. She can do all kids of faces and the kids loved watching too. I would wholeheartedly recommend her and touch of magic for your next bday party!!!

Review by Gretchen P.

Lorri Michals is a phenomenal and talented hypnotist! She had all of the women laughing at our Women's Expo. The volunteers that were hypnotized were hilarious! She has a magical and flawless way of having the volunteers do clean and funny things without feeling embarrassed or humiliated afterwards. I appreciated how audience members of all ages could enjoy the show and be entertained! She was just what the Doctor ordered for me! Thank you for the laughter therapy Lorri! Gretchen Prohofsky

Review by Sherri G.

I hired Lorri Michals for my company's annual sales retreat. Ever year I try to bring in entertainment that will not only entertain my employees but that will provide an outlet for true fun and team building - not an easy task. I have failed at this task in the past, until hiring Lorri. My employees, months later, are still talking about how much fun they had at Lorri's show. I have employees who say they have never laughed as hard as they did the night she performed. I can honestly say my sales team is a more cohesive group after sharing this experience together. I, along with my employees, can't wait to bring Lorri back to Denver again for our next retreat. I highly recommend Lorri Michals to any business who is looking for truly professional entertainment.

Review by Dawn M.

Lorri Michals and A Touch of Magic were awesome! First of all, we had to reschedule our show due to an ice storm. They were very accomodating and worked with us so we could still use them. Finally, the show was simply incredible. Our audience (employees) were mesmerized and laughing hysterically throughout the show. We will definitely use them again!

Review by Jill H.

We had a wonderful experience with A Touch of Magic. Each staff member I spoke to before the event, was professional and extremely friendly. The communication was excellent. Lorri did an outstanding job! Our group consisted of 60 people, and Lorri put everyone at ease - there was no problem getting enough volunteers. I especially appreciated that her show was "G-rated", as promised, but still hilarious! Everyone had a great time! I would highly recommend Lorri Michals, and A Touch of Magic Comedy and Hypnosis Entertainment, to my friends and colleagues. Thank you for your contribution in making our evening a success!

"We had A Touch of Magic at our company's family day picnic. They were GREAT! The kids loved them! The performance was appropriate for all ages, the balloon art was a hit with all the kids, and the face painting was absolutely AMAZING! We will definitely hire them again."
N. Shell Valero Renewable Fuels

"We have had Oscar and Half Pint visit our small preschool in South MPLS for 10 years. We don't dream of using anyone else. Our preschool is very diverse and Oscar and Half Pint have always hit a home-run with all of our kids and families -- even the ones who speak another language. Their physical humor is funny in whatever language you speak. I have also seen them take a child who is terrified by clowns, work their magic with humor and child development understanding, to make the child love Oscar and Half Pint. As an educator, I would highly recommend Oscar and Half Pint! "
S. Walker Early Wonders Preschool

Testimonials

We have never worked with a hypnotist for this type of event, and some of my colleagues were very skeptical when I mentioned booking one. I was able to see Lorri perform in person to see if she was appropriate for our group, and I knew after watching her show that she was perfect for our event. The show was spectacular! Our managers really enjoyed the show and it was a perfect ending to our evening event. Lorri even customized the show to provide some McDonalds humor. The show was very funny and Lorri was sensitive to our corporate image. She handled the group size of nearly 700 people fabulously. The audience included managers ages 18-50 and they truly enjoyed it. Based on our experience, we will definitely consider Lorri for future events. Thank you again for a wonderful show and for making our event a success!

– S. Overby

We are so glad we hired your company . . . . You were easy to work with on scheduling and made it a very easy process from beginning to end. Lorri Michals made it a memorable evening for everyone present. We were very impressed at how much the audience responded to her and how much fun everyone had. She kept everyones attention from the beginning until the end.

– M. Campbell

Thank you so very much for the fabulous entertainment last night. Your show was spectacular and will continue to be talked about for a very long time. You and your company made this a very special event for us and we greatly appreciate it. We will be happy to be a referral source for you as we were more than satisfied with your performance. You are fantastic, spectacular and a lovely entertainer

– J. Johanns

Hiring Lorri was one of the best decisions I ever made! Lorri very quickly put the entire group at ease, made us feel very comfortable that under hypnosis, no one would be asked to do anything that would embarrass them. She also made us laugh with her charming demeanor. When Lorri asked for volunteers, more rushed the stage than we had seats available!! We laughed until we cried, and afterwards, everyone said that Lorri was the best entertainment we had ever had!

– E. Lasner

A Touch of Magic was great to work with! From the pre-planning all the way through to the final paperwork they did everything possible to make our event a success. Lorri was very funny and entertaining on stage! We have never done an event quite like this before and it was a big hit. People are still talking about it! The best part was that it was good, clean fun.

– C. Bell
