***I AM NO LONGER ACCEPTING NEW GIG REQUESTS AT THIS TIME - MY SINCERE APOLOGIES FOR THE INCONVENIENCE***
Michael Sheridan has been impersonating your favorite buccaneer since 2003, and is the perfect addition to your pirate birthday party, corporate event, etc. He has performed several seasons at the Colorado Renaissance festival, and helped promote events like the Real Pirates exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Renowned as one of the best Captain Jack impersonators in the nation, you will not be disappointed!
We hired Michael for our sons birthday party. It really made our party special. He was early, prepared, easy to communicate with and great with the kids! We got so many compliments from the other parents on how great he was. Very talented and did the perfect impersonation of Captain Jack Sparrow! He stayed in character the entire time and took the kids on a long treasure hunt, taught sword fighting and interacted constantly with the kids! I highly recommend him and will hire him again next time we need a Pirate!
Michael came to my son's Pirates of the Caribbean 9th birthday party as Captain Jack Sparrow. He was phenomenal. As soon as he arrived until he left, he was in character. The kids were entertained the whole time and he made my son feel extra special as the birthday boy. He was definitely the highlight of the party for the kids and adults. I highly recommend him for any pirate party.
Very professional - would definitely hire him again. It was great - zero complaints!
I hired Captain Jack for a pirated themed birthday party for my 7 year old daughter. There were 15 kids at the party ranging from ages 4-8 and he did a great job holding their attention for a solid hour and including them all in the activities. His Johnny Depp impression is excellent and the sword fighting (with pool noodles) was hilarious. One dad who is turning 40 soon said, with sincerity, that he wants to hire Jack for his 40th party! Worth every penny!
We had Michael (Cap't Jack) come to our son's pirate themed 4th birthday party and he did an amazing job. Our kiddos were mostly 4 and under and he did a wonderful job teaching them pirate stuff (talking like a pirate, treasure hunting, sword fighting). He stayed in character the whole time and was very entertaining. He was definitely the highlight of the party.
We hired Captain Jack for our son's fifth birthday after hearing a recommendation from a family we met at the Botanics. They had loved him so much they had hired him twice - and I totally understand why. He is FANTASTIC. He was always prompt and helpful in our emails planning the party, and really went the extra distance to make the event special. On the day, he was on time and just brilliant. A great impersonator and so much fun for the kids. I know they had an unforgettable experience - and so did we. So worth it. Can't recommend highly enough. Hope my son is still into pirates next year, so we can do it again. Thank you a million Captain Jack for a truly special day.
We enjoyed Captain Jack at our party. He really does give it his all and he is so good at portraying the character, you would think he was the real deal. Would have him again and highly recommend him.
I can't express how Amazing captain Jack is. He was part of our entertainment at our annual BBQ last night. We had over 35 kids too. He was so so patient with all the kids. He made each one feel more than special. he took the time to answer questions and to listen to our needs. He was so impressive and the adults loved him too. They kept asking me "Where did you fine him?"My grandkids will never forgot the time"Captain Jack" came to our Party! I found him here on Gigsalad and i highly recommend him to everyone. He is worth his weight in gold coins for sure.You need to book him before Disney or Hollywood discover him! Yes-He is that good.
Captain Jack was requested for a return visit to our school by students, parents and teachers. He is very talented and the children become so focused on Captain Jack and his educational history lessons and stories. He is a loved by our children at school beyond words. We now have our younger children asking for him. Highly Recommended by all staff and management at Primrose at Ken Caryl.
Thanks a million Captain Jack!
Captain Jack was amazing at our school. He took the time to interact and educate our students. The students loved the one on one competition with Capt. Jack and were still talking about it the next day. Parents were inquiring how to contact Capt. Jack for parties. We can not wait to book Capt. Jack again for a school function. Highly Recommended.
He was awesome, kids and adults loved it. He had a lot of activities for the kids, he even integrated Jake and the Neverland Pirates into it (since my son is huge Jake fan).
Thanks sooo much.
Captain Jack is phenomenal! He successfully entertained 15 children today who are now convinced they met a real pirate. He is funny, energetic, and stays in character like a total professional. Do not hesitate to book him!
Captain Jack Sparrow engaged both the children and adults in humor, fun, and several hands-on activities. From the treasure hunt to the sword-fighting lessons, all were eating out of the pirate's hands. His flexibility with the audience and impromptu responses to his crowd delighted everyone. When our two-party was over I felt like I got more than my money's worth!
He acted and looked like the real Jack Sparrow. Sone of the kids told us it was the best party they have ever been to, the adults including me were so impressed with him. Great job!
We had Captain Jack come for our son's 7th birthday party, and he was fantastic. All of the kids and parents were amazed at how great he was, if you didn't know better you would think it really was Johnny Depp as captain Jack. His presence made our son's party "the" party of the school year. Definitely the best kid's party many had been to.
Response from Captain Jack in CO:
Thank you so much for your kind words! The kids at your party were an absolute joy to entertain! One of the best bunches I've had this year!
Captain Jack was excellent! We hired him for our son's 4th birthday pirate party. All the kids and the parents had a great time. I had several parents tell me they thought he was great, and were most impressed he stayed in character the entire time... even while being chased by a pack of 4 year olds!
A seamless and talented impersonation; it was difficult to remember he wasn't the real one! He's professional, very funny, and a real pleasure to work with. I'd recommend him to anyone and hire him again in an instant!
Seamless impersonation; it's easy to forget he's not quite the real one. He's fun, funny, friendly, professional, and very talented. Brilliant entertainer!

For 5 seasons Michael performed at the Colorado Renaissance Festival as everyone's favorite dreadlocked pirate captain.
