I had emailed Alex to ask for information because I had never hired an entertainer before and was responded to almost immediately and given all the information I had asked about plus some. He is very polite and was easy to work with!
The day of the party he called 15 minutes prior to arrival so we could get all the children outside for his grand entrance. He walked outside and jaws dropped and my son ran over to him and gave him a huge hug! Alex then walked over to our swing set and was pushing my son on the swing! Not everyday you see Captain Jack pushing your kid on the swing! It was fun to see! He was VERY attentive to the birthday boy the ENTIRE time and did not leave out other guests and spoke to everyone there (45 people). He had plenty of games and activities to do with the children and they were entertained the entire time! He would randomly walk over and ask for guests gold (necklaces and rings I had placed around the house) and they all got a huge kick out of it. He acted JUST LIKE Jack Sparrow from the movie and was also really good at explaining everything he had on to kids who asked what certain things were!
When it was time to cut the cake he lead everyone in the birthday song and even got behind my son and posed for a few pictures with him and the cake. He then helped cut the cake and gave the birthday boy the first slice! After cake it was picture time and Alex posed with each and every guest and even went over to a few of the shy ones and got pictures with them as well and made them laugh! He even waited patiently while a few of the guests tried to track down the rest of their family for the photo.
I cannot tell you how amazing he was with my son and the other kids and guests. It was the best decision ever to hire him for my sons 5th birthday party. People are still talking about it and several other kids now want a pirate at their birthday party! My son is still saying "can you believe a REAL pirate came to MY birthday party?!"
Thank you again Alex, words cannot express how great you were at his party. You were above and beyond our expectations!
