We've had Jacki Manna do several shows for our family and have loved every one of them. She is great with children and does a fantastic job including us adults as well! The face painting was beautiful and her balloon twisting was a hit! Everyone loved her "Corny Crew". We highly recommend Jacki for your party entertainment needs! She's the BEST!!
Jacki came out and did a 30-minute act for my wife's baby shower! The crowd was mainly Indian-Americans (from India) which are a group of people that quite generally react like a 4-year old where you wonder if they understood anything you spent the last hour saying until the car ride home when they start repeating everything like someone just hit play! Everyone loved her act! She had the entire room, about 60 people including adults and children, glued to their seats during her act and rolling. For the children, she brought them all up near her and introduced them to 2 characters in that tight window. In my opinion, the reason she was so successful in her act was her preparation and experience. You could just tell that she was not doing this for the first time. We were very blessed to have her come and entertain us. She will definitely be invited back to another event. I don't know Jacki from Eve but when she was doing her act, you could feel the favor of God on her skillset. She is well worth any premium price she requests. Thank you Jacki for coming out and doing your thing for us!
We got the right choice! Ms Jacki Manna was absolutely fantastic. She performed for the birthdays of our sons. All children were very entertained as well as the adult guests. She was so generous giving away a lot of balloons that are twisted and her artistic hands made every kid look so happy and proud of their face painting. She was so friendly and manage to get the attention of the kids in the party and listen to her. We were so surprised as she made a surprise performance having the puppet and magic on her magic board. And of course we are very thankful for that. Ms Jacki made our party a successful one. She 's very professional and so sweet. Even if we had a little hard time regarding the paperworks, she still managed to help me out to make things go as plan. Again, thanks Ms Jacki for having a good job. Maraming Salamat po(thank you) from our whole family!
Each year, AFGO (the renowned worldwide organization created in Paris almost 130 years ago) organizes a crêpes (sweet) or galettes (savory) party.
Anticipating that a significant number of children (most of them students at our French School) would participate, we asked Jacki Manna, who is also a French teacher, to entertain the crowd.
Jacki produced two half-hour shows: a magician and a ventriloquist show. Both were very skillfully executed. Children as well as adults had a blast; and AFGO received a lot of rave for this party, in great part due to Jacki’s performance.

Jackie did a GREAT job entertaining my family and friends for my brother's birthday party. The audience was made up of all adults from mid-30s to some over 80s. And everyone enjoyed her show! I highly recommend her for any family get together!
A wonderful show, very funny and talented. She even personalized jokes for the audience and made the whole family feel included in the show. The last act had the everyone almost in tears. Her magic tricks and puppets combined for a wonderful hour of fun and I'd recommend her for any gig in need of some great entertainment~
Jacki's gig was very entertaining. Her skills as a ventriloquist were amazing and the each puppet had an unique personality that was really brought out by her voice. She used a variety of props during her magic act; each one was a pleasure to witness. I enjoyed her act and would definitely book her again.
On our son's 7th birthday party, we had the pleasure of watching Jacki Manna's show. It was so much fun, the children were completely enthralled with her magic, her puppets and her wit. Cowboy Eddie, JoJo Bean and her other puppets friends were a total success with the audience. Jacki has a great way of interacting with the children! The magic was definitely there; one trick after another, the hour long show passed like a minute of pure magic! Thank you for a wonderful birthday experience!
Jacki did an amazing job at my daughters birthday party. We received many compliments and my husband and I were very pleased we had her there. The children loved her and she was a terrific addition to our party. Thank you Jacki and see you next year.!!!!!
I just wanted to say thank you for the fabulous job you did at my daughter's 6th birthday party. You remembered she likes ducks, Hello Kitty, and included her little brother. These details mean so much. You were wonderful! Thank you, again.
She has kids come on stage and makes things funny for everyone.
Jacki's alligator JoJo Bean wore a funny costume and swimming goggles. He tried but couldn't say where he is from - Florida. He was funny.
I got to see a drawing on a board talk while someone erased the face. Everyone that comes to her show gets a special prize, a Million Dollars. Kids and adults will like her show a lot! She will make you laugh for sure. Go see Jacki Manna.
I am so blessed I had the opportunity to meet Jacki. She is indeed a entertainer who aims to please the children and families she serves. Jacki is passionate about her work. I will definitely consult with Jacki again for future upcoming events.
My husband and I saw Jackie perform ventriloquism several times, most recently in Madison, WI. She had Cowboy Eddie with her, and they were funny and entertaining! The crowd loved her! She brings her characters to life with wit and charm, and they even sing sometimes! Jacki is multi-talented, professional and a true entertainer! We look forward to seeing her perform again soon!
Jacki made my son feel so important and special at his 4th birthday. He talks about her puppet, Jo Jo Bean, all the time. She even made me and the other adults laugh. I highly recommend her for any children's party!
