Enjoy and relive the wonder and the magic of Christmas with Santa Joe. Make the holiday season a special memorable treat with a visit from your own personal real beard Santa. My character persona, Santa is not only for children. Santa Jo worked with live reindeer, been in commercials and documentaries Santa is available for photos with children, adults and pets. I am also a photographer (with over 20 years experience) therefore I can make and take a great photograph when needed.
He has a certified background check and professional liability insurance. Member of IBRBS and Lower Hudson Santa Association. A recent graduate of Professional Santa Claus School.
It was great! Santa was a nice, easy going and funny guy. The kids loved him.
I manage a health club in a residential building. One of our events is the annual holiday party for the residents. After what happened last year, I was determined to look elsewhere for our Santa Claus and came across GigSalad. Looking through the submissions, my instincts told me to go with Joseph Laine. I'm so glad I did, he was a perfect fit for our annual holiday party. Joseph arrived early, in costume, ready to go. He was charming, pleasant, in character, making a grand entrance, taking the time to greet everyone in the room. He sat down to give out little gift bags to all the children posing with them individually and with their families, asking each child what they wanted for Christmas. Seeing the looks on the faces of the children was priceless. You might think that all of this should be a given when you are hiring someone to play Santa Claus, but trust me it's not. The experience I had last year was proof. So I highly recommend Joseph Laine. He is someone who goes above and beyond.
Santa Jo was great for our holiday event. He was kind and sweet with all the children and the young at heart! He went out of his way to make everyone feel welcome, accepted last-minute gift requests and really brought the Christmas cheer. Would definitely recommend for your next event.
Joe was professional and spent time with the kids. He was easy to get in touch with and on time for the event. I would use him again!
Joseph was very professional and although peppered with questions from kids of all ages, remained upbeat.
He was fantastic
Santa was a lovely addition to our holiday festivities. Our colleagues loved to see him and posed for many photos with him. We also had Santa stand in our lobby for the guests and their kiddies to see, and they truly enjoyed the experience. Having Santa there made the holidays a little more festive and cheerful!
the event was a success, santa was magnificent, he just need to adjust he’s “ hohohoho and jingle bell “ script.. but over all he was nice with kids and the event was magical!
Convinced this Santa is the real deal. Very prompt, courteous, great with everyone he came in contact with. Even after he left our party, he stopped for pictures with people walking by on the way to his ride. He could not have done more to make our party great. Thanks Santa, can't wait to see you again next year!
it was amazing!
Santa was presentable, friendly and kind to the children. He allowed children to stay close to him and was super patient with every picture and petition
Santa arrived ahead of time and ready to go.
Kids and adults had a great time chatting.
Was on time and looked incredilbe! Didn’t rush off. He seemed to really enjoy the gig.
Santa was on time and amazing with both kids and adults. We will defintely book him again!
