Hank rocked our party...he was def the hero of our day!!!
We hired Hank for my sons 5th super hero themed party..His arrival was everything (the parents are stil talking about it..upset me and the bday boy missd it) he jumped in with a burst of energy..more then all the kids had put together..after me and the bday boy finally arrived he suprised my son and my sons reaction and the hug they shared confirmed hiring Hank was a job well done(my son is at the stage where he questions if everything is real or if its just costumes and he didnt question me about spidey once)..he had plenty of enery to entertain all the kids(bunch of 3-7yr olds)..even included the parents..the kids wouldnt stop talking about their special super hero training they had..and hank NEVER i mean NEVER broke character( i had a naughty lil nephew whose sole purpose that day was to try and get him out of character..Hank handled it all with ease) he was the most professional..energetic..down right funnest entertainment i had ever personally booked or seen from attending other birthday parties..you def will not regret having Hank at your party!!
I picked Hank based on his reviews and was not disappointed. He came as a pirate and kept 40 kids entertained at my sons' birthday party. The ages ranged from 4 to 10 years old. They had a lot of fun, it was cute to see them all follow him around. He made them some inflatable swords and they followed his every move through "pirate training", and after that he had many other activities up his sleeve. The parents were having fun too watching his act! He also kept the kids busy through "cake time", while the adults were busy cutting and giving out the cake slices, which was very helpful to avoid a stampede.... A friend told me that after the party, when she was driving her kids home, they couldn't stop talking about him and the fact that he was a "real pirate". Highly recommend. Great job, Captain Hank!
I had a good feeling about Hank (Batman) from the first time I spoke to him on the phone. He sounded accountable, personable, fun, and passionate about his job. Sure enough, he met and exceeded our expectations! He showed up on time to my son's Birthday party. His Batman costume didn't look cheap at all. The whole hour Hank sounded just like Batman. He engaged the adults and the kids. Our guests had so much fun. Then he incorporated fun games and balloon twisting. There was not a dull moment in that hour. My son was so pleased that we got hold of THE REAL Batman. We will definitely hire him again for future birthday parties.
Wow! Batman you made my daughter's 5th birthday so special. She has the biggest smile telling everyone who showed up to her party. Not only kids had a blast with him, but all the adults did too as he engaged them in the activities ,that was just fantastic. I recommend him 100%. He was so professional and showed up on time and worked really hard the entire time. Many thanks .
I'm so thankful to Hank for coming as Spiderman for my Son Gobind's fifth birthday party. Spiderman filled the party with life, he came right on time and was very entertaining for kids and adults as well for two hours. I would give him more than five stars if its possible. When you call him or send him message, you will always find quick response from him. If Hank is there, party will be fully entertaining. I will sure call him on my son's next birthday. Thank you so much Hank.
Hank was amazing!!!! As Spiderman he captivated and kept entertained 30 rambunctious 3-7 year olds for 1.5 hours. They laughed, ran through a superhero obstacle course, learned special superhero power skills and took down a candy stealing villain with silly string and their super strength.
Staying in character the entire time, not one of the children ever thought to ask if he was "real" or not. Hank stayed to take the most adorable pics with my children, a little Spidey and the Green Lantern. I am still hearing about his awesome job and am looking at hiring him for my next party....as the sly spy. Great job Hank and thank you soooooooooo much!!!!
Wow! Just amazing. Hank needs more stars than five. He rocked my 3 year old son's world and made Spider Man real. He arrived in character and stayed in character even while I was writing the check so kids would not see Spider Man accept payment or drive off in a car. Of course because Spider Man fly's through the air with his webs right??!! He kept the kids and adults entertained for an hour and I would hire him again 100%. Do not think twice to hire Hank, just do it really.
Wow! Hank just recently did my sons 1st birthday on feb.22,2014 and literally from the moment he walked in the doors the kids loved him! He jumped in the doors and said ahoy mattes at the top of his lungs. He got everyone's attention right away! He was there at exactly 2:30. He got all the kids involved. He didn't let any of the older ones sit down thinking they were to cool. Lol. They got sword balloons, did sword training, did tug a wars and even got the adults in on that. All the kids got paint on mustaches. Not only did he keep the kids entertained the adults were entertained watching him! After the party was over I walked mr pirate outside and he still continued to talk like a pirate. He never broke character. Everyone loved him! I had so many adults come up to me and say best kids birthday ever! And little kids were saying the party was awesome! I'm so glad everyone had fun. (And I got the kids outta my hair) lol I will defiantly be calling hank next year for my sons 2nd birthday! I look forward to talking to you hank!
Let me add one more thing. When I first called hank he gave me a quote that was over my budget. I called him back to see of he would be willing to work with me. At first he said no but then he called me back and was willing to my asking price! And boy are we glad he did!
Hank made my son's 6th birthday party the best ever. We were having a Star Wars theme and he not only came as a Jedi Knight, but also changed into Darth Vader! He was right on time, and for 1.5 hours he never broke character. The kids were never happier. I was very impressed with his patience, high energy, and how well he was with the kids. The Jedi Training was awesome and more than could have dreamed of. I think they were all working up a sweat! He also did some balloon twisting before heading off to "find" Darth Vader. Coming back in as Darth was a little intimidating to the kids and some were scared at first, but Hank was very patient and reassured them well. By the end they were all playing Hide-N-Seek with Darth Vader and hated to see him go. I can't recommend Hank enough for your party and many of the parents at the party were very impressed too and wanted the contact information. It's hard to find someone so passionate about working with kids and Hank was nothing short of fabulous!! It was well worth the price (which was very reasonable) and I would book him again in a second.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Hank. He was professional and courteous with an infectious energy from the first contact. When he got to the party he came dressed as Batman and stayed in character the entire time. He interacted with all the kids on an individual basis and actually remembered all their name, which was VERY impressive. He interacted with the adults as well, really drawing everyone into the party. He worked well with the kids that were into it and helped the kids who were a little scared at first relax and join the fun. By the end, they were all said to see him go. He played games - taught the kids how to fight the bad guys, hide and seek, tug of war, he did balloon animals, magic tricks. It was well worth the price. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for party entertainment. I wil definitely use him again in the future and will recommend him to all my family and friends. Highly impressive, wonderful attitude and humor, definitely made our party complete! Thanks again, Hank!
I am so glad I found Hank. My son had his 8 th birthday and he came for an hour and a half and the kids never lost interest. He kept them entertained as well as the adults. I have a 21 year old also been to lots of parties and hired people as well. He by far was the best ever. Made the party something my son his parents as well as the guests have something to remember always. Thank you so much.
The best! My son had the greatest time......... so wonderful and great. I would recommend him to anyone! Spiderman was fantastic!
My daughter and all the kids at the party loved every minute of Flynn Rider's visit. He arrived with his beautiful partner Rapunzel and both remained in character from beginning to end. We all had a wonderful time, adults and kids alike. There was balloon animals, sword fighting, dancing, story time and games. Both were a joy to have at my little girls party and we will definitely have to have him visit again. Thank you so much Hank and thank you to Rapunzel. We had such a fantastic time! :)
Hank was very funny, high energy, would definitely repeat
Hank the Pirate was amazing! We had a bounce house, but it was not keeping the kids interest for long. Hank the Pirate came just in the nick of time! Balloon sword fights, rope tug, races, face painting, treasure hunt. Hank did great with entertaining the kids and adults at the party. His enthusiasm is amazing and he really made the party! We will definitely be contacting Hank next year!!!
Came on time, in his
Spider-Man costume. The kids enjoyed
Him as well as teenagers and adults. He's great overall does face painting ballon animals n magic tricks!
Hired hank for my so s 6th birthday party he was Spider-Man and all the kids were thrilled we had a small space to work with but he kept the kids entertained for a whole hour and my son could not stop saying how great his party was. Not to mention all the adults had a blast too including my 92 year old grandma. I would definitely hire him again! Thanks again hank!!! I mean...Spider-Man!
THANKS SO MUCH HAnk FOR coming out and celebrating Jeremy's bash with us. You did a awesome job as a pirate .. You will be called again..
He did a great job! The kids loved him & he was very entertaining & interactive! We will hire him again for more events at Old Ranch Country Club.
It was my nephew's 1st birthday party on Saturday. Hank zoomed into our party with a bundle of energy and excitement. He had the whole crowd (adults and of course kids) on their feet, enjoy every minute of the fun activities. Everything went amazing! I would give Hank 10 out of 5 if it were possible! :-)
Hank the pirate entertained my party the whole time he was there !!! It was soooo WORTH it!! We loved every bit of it and everyone is still talking about his performance !!! #lovedIT
Batman showed up at my son's 4th birthday party and was Fantastic from the moment he arrived!! He engaged all the kids as well as the parents, which made it that much more fun. The kids still practice the Justice League training they learned that day. He stayed in character the entire time, even though it was incredibly hot outside he was still upbeat, happy, fun, made jokes and not once faltered from the Amazing Batman (said in Christian Bale's Batman voice ;) which was used by him throughout the entire hour. ) He did Justice training with the kids, played hide and seek, balloon twisting, parachute games, magic and posed for our many picture. I can not express how truly happy we are with Hank's performance. Our son has social anxiety and so we were worried that, although he idolizes Batman, he would be scared, he even started to withdraw for a second before Batman spoke to him. Our worry ended there, Hank/Batman engaged him in a way that was very calming yet still in character. We will definitely be using Hank again for any other characters we would like a visit from.
Hank was SO MUCH FUN!
First, he was able to come to my son's 5th b-day on a very short notice and did not mind driving few hours to get to the party. Secondly, he kept his Spidey role entire time he was there! And trust me, we (the grown ups) were trying to challenge it ;) That man has some serious energy too - he was entertaining the kids for 2h straight without a dull moment or a sign of impatience with kids.
I highly recommend Hank!
Several months ago, I was lucky enough to see Hank in action at a local park playground with a dozen or young kids at a birthday party. My son, who was with me, is normally quite shy around strangers, but in this case was so captivated by the "Ninja Training" that he joined right in (basically crashing the party for those 10-15 minutes -- didn't have the heart to stop him). I knew then and there who would be providing the entertainment at my son's next birthday.
We finally had that opportunity a couple of weeks ago and were not dissappointed. Always in character, Hank packed the two hours we booked him with all sorts of fun activities for the roughly-six-year-olds in attendance. From bubble-twisting to martial arts "training" to tug of war games, a magic performance, super-huge bubble chasing etc. he kept the attendees excited, engaged and amazingly "under control" the whole time.
You cannot go wrong with Hank!
Hank thank you so much ..everyone enjoyed you both kids and adults it was a blast to have you there keeping everyone entertained true to character not once broke from being a clown
Hank came to my son's 3rd birthday party as a clown. He stayed in character the whole time and was super entertaining. He kept all the kids entertained and had them participating in everything. He was truly fun to watch and the parents even wanted to participate.We had over twenty kids from the ages to 3-10 and they all loved him. I would recommend Hank to anyone who wants to keep all the kids entertained while you get to enjoy the party yourself.
I hired Hank as Darth Vader for my sons 7th birthday party. I cannot say enough good things about him. The communication prior to the event was excellent and Hank arrived on time and ready to entertain. He made my son feel really special, even though he was a little shy and reserved. Hank was able to entertain 15 wild children and they absolutely loved every minute of it. I highly recommend Hank as your party performer. You will not be disappointed. After the party, the parents were saying wonderful things about Darth and how much the kids loved the show. It was a hit! Thank you Hank. My son wants you back next year!!
AWESOME!! He was so patient and just amazing with the kids,especially the little ones ! We would definitely recommend him
We recently had Hank come out for my 5 year old son's Batman birthday. We had 4 kids and a handful of adults. He did a great job getting everyone involved in Superhero Training as well as other activities. He stayed in character the entire time and was amazing! He was funny and imaginative when talking to adults and kids alike. We had one shy kid and Hank did his best to get him involved and keep him a part of the activities. I would absolutely ask Hank to do another party for me for kids or adults! and I would recommend him to anyone! He really enjoys what he does and it shows.
AWESOME!! He was so good with the kids they loved him. Really played into the character Hank you were great definitely will be calling him back next year!!
Hank you were amazing with the kids! Coming in as a Jedi Master and teaching the Padawans the Jedi moves, preparing them for battle with Darth Vader. Then a costume change to become Darth Vader, whoa the kids loved that! The games were fun, your witty responses were always in character, the kids just loved you! You have a great way of getting the kids excited, involved, while always keeping with the Star Wars theme. Even the adults at the party said that was one of the best parties they've been to for kids, and they had a ball watching the kids have fun! You were also great at making our son for his 6th Birthday feel very special! He LOVED it! Still talking about it!
I went to a Star Wars themed birthday party last weekend and was amazed at the entertainment! Hank did an amazing job as a Jedi trainer AND he came back a bit later as no other than Darth Vadar!! The kids had a blast but most of all, the parents are all still talking about it! My sons will have a super hero birthday party this summer and I could think of no one else to come entertain the kids! This guy is GREAT!
We had a "NINJA" Training party for our son's 6th birthday party and the kids are still talking about it. They had so much fun. Hank was FANTASTIC! Hilarious, kept the kids (and adults) thoroughly entertained all throughout the party. All the activities and games he arranged for the kids were fun and age appropriate. We highly recommend Hank for anyone who wants to add action, humor, and spectacle to their birthday party. If you are planning a Ninja Party he is Highly recommended!! Great job Hank, thanks once again! You are surely coming back to our future parties:)
We hired Hank to be a pirate for my son's 3rd birthday party. My son was so anxious to meet "Captain Hank" and Hank did not disappoint.
From the time Hank arrived to the party, until the second he left, he remained in full character. He had a crazy amount of energy and he engaged everybody at the party. He kids loved each of his activities (pirarte training, sack races, treasure hunt, pirate parachute, giant bubbles, balloon twisting and pinata) and the parents were amazed by how much he did. Nobody had ever seen a party entertainer like him.
Hank arrived on time, and even stayed a little late. Pricing was incredibly fair and was well worth every dollar.
Hank made the birthday boy feel extremely special and gave us all a birthday party to never forget.
Everyone loved him! Hank stayed in character the whole time he was there and was so patient with all the kids.
We hired Hank as the Pirate and he came on time, was very professional, and kept all children and adults engaged in his activities. It was great. Everyone had a blast. We will be hiring him again!
Planning a birthday party is hectic as it is!! You dont know what you are getting when you hire entertainment. Hank was right on time and kept the kids entertained ( adults too). Parents also got involved in the activities. My son who turned 6yrs old has not stopped talking about Darth Vader. Hank sure will be hearing from us again next year!!!
Hank did an amazing job at my son's 4th birthday. He literally jumped on the scene and rocked the party. We weren't really sure what to expect at first when we hired a balloon twisting, face-painting pirate, but all the kids loved him! He stayed in character at all times and was uninhibitedly enthusiastic. I've run into several parents since our party and they could not stop talking about how much their kids enjoyed Hank's games and activities. We would definitely have him back. Hip Hip Hooray!
A great performer. So much for energy and ability to keep the kids busy with lots of different activities is commendable. In my daughter's first birthday party there were kids from the age group 2-10, he was able to make all the kids laugh, fun, enjoy and occupied with his variety of acts like balloon twisting, face paint, magic tricks and part games etc. I am glad i booked him and no one else on my little one's birthday party.
Where do I even begin. Maybe I could start by saying he deserves 5 stars all the way!
Great with kids (and kids at heart). Check!
Knowledgeable in his craft. Check!
Sincere. Dedicated. Check, check!
I put myself in charge of pretty much all the details of my son's Ninja/Ninjago party and it is such a great deal for me to win everyone's approval at the end of the day. But most importantly my husband's, who is quite tough to impress and win over. But guess what?! Hank did just that! He earned my husbands stamp of approval-- and with flying colors! He raved about Hank's performance the night of my son's party and even the following night. Now that is somethin else!
Do yourself a favor and book this versatile guy. Let this human ball of fun and energy spread cheer and entertainment to your guests from the moment he arrives til he exits the "scene". Oh and did I mention he made me extra ninja stars?! Thank you Hank! and I hope you do get more gigs. You deserve it Buddy (",)
My son attended a birthday party where Hank showed up as Batman and I knew I had to have him for my son's birthday the following month. Hank came as Cowboy Hank and he was fantastic. He even grew a mustache and beard to look authentic. He planned fun activities for the kids and stuck around during lunch/cake time to twist balloons for the kids. I would recommend him in a heart beat to anyone looking for a full-service character at their party. HANK RULES!
Will recommend to friends and hire again…
At the end of the day my son said he had the best birthday of his life. When I asked what he like the best, he said, "My pirate. He was real, right?"
I knew it was going to be a great performance just by how enthusiastic Hank was when describing what he had planned for the party. When Pirate Hank arrived, he came in character and didn't stop for the entire party. My friends and family couldn't believe that I found such a great pirate and wanted to know...
how did I find this guy!!!
The kids had a great time learning how to be pirates. The whole party loved his sense of humor and fun ideas. All of the pictures we took during the party have people laughing and joining in with the kids' fun. I’m beyond happy with Pirate Hank and recommend him for anyone that is looking for a way to make his or her party memorable.
Thanks Hank, you really are the best!
O.M.G. Hank was absolutely incredible. He's quick on his feet, flexible, funny, witty, and he works beautifully with the kids. I had 25 little kids between 3 and 7 years old and he kept them all entertained and under control, all by himself, for 90 minutes. He was courteous, friendly, and showed up on-time. When inquiring about the service, he was incredibly explanatory and quick to respond. Both things that I very much value. People were amazed at his performance and his skill at working with kids while keeping it fun and the crowd alive and interested. I will hire him again, some guests will hire him based on this performance, and most importantly, my sons smiles were from ear to ear for hours after the party. They still don't understand how Spider-Man knew it was their birthday and how he just suddenly appeared! Highly recommend - FIVE stars across the board, baby! Hank rules!
The kids had a blast! My son was very excited about his Ninja visitor. I would recommend hiring a Ninja for your child's b-day..... I will be using these services again for the next party.
Wow! What a performance for the kids! From the moment Hank arrived to the moment he "vanished" he never broke Ninjago character. He was so good with the kids and ALL my friends asked me where the heck did you find this guy? Great job, Hank! I'll will undoubtedly hire you again, and again.
Response from Hank's Party Performance:
Thank's Greg! Your son's party was a lot of fun, and I was so happy to see some Past Action Heroes in that sack race! =)
Hank came dressed as a pirate to my son's 7th birthday party and was a huge hit. He was in complete Pirate character...he was fantastic!
Hank entertained all of us with his pirate impersonations which were so realistic and true to character.
Hank designed creative balloon designs for all of the kids.
In addition to all of the other fun events, he also did face painting.
I would highly recommend Hank and use him again for another party!
