We had so much fun! We had about 25 kids from ages 2 up and they all enjoyed Mark's show! He was hilarious and so great with the kids! He had all the adults laughing and enjoying themselves as well! He went above and beyond and I would highly recommend them. A ton of people there asked me for their info as well because they enjoyed it so much! They definitely were the hit of the party and we can't thank them enough for all their hard work and everything they did prior to the event to help us with details as well! All around such an amazing experience and such a nice couple! :) Thank you again Lori and Mark!!
These guys did an amazing job, wish there was more stars to give them!!!
Response from A Touch of Magic Entertainment:
Thank you so much, Jeremy! We had SUCH a great time at your community festival!!!! We're looking forward to the next one!!! :)
I knew they had a good reputation, and I felt confident after speaking with Lori on the phone, so I figured everything would be just fine. And then it was better than fine. It was, hands down, the best entertainment we have ever brought to our corporate banquet!!! We do staff evaluations (on the food, decorations, invitations, door prizes and entertainment), and I had more people compliment the show than ever before. They loved the music, the harmony, the comedy and the audience participation. (And we all appreciated that it was clean.) My assistant said that her face hurt from laughing so much. I don't know how we're going to top this next year.
I highly recommend this company.
These guys are amazing.
I had a good feeling about them when I first called, and they didn't disappoint!
Their program was funny, appropriate and everything I hoped for.
And I also appreciated how responsive they were ahead of time and how they made sure that my needs were taken care of.
Thank you for a great experience.
I hired Lori from A Touch of Magic as a balloon twister for my 4-year old's birthday party. I was very impressed with how well she worked with this age group. When she first arrived, my son was very shy and hesitant, but she worked her magic and had him laughing and highly engaged in no time. He had so much fun. And he absolutely loved his balloon ninja turtles! I definitely would recommend A Touch of Magic and Lori in particular to anyone.
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!
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!
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!
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!!!
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
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.
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!
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."

"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! "
