We hired a "catering" staff for our wedding that lacked basic serving skills-- they didn't know which direction to pour water from a pitcher, change chafing dishes, or bus tables. They were supposed to come early to set up and get oriented, but they came 15 minutes after the wedding started and left 15 minutes early, even though we paid for that time. Half the staff stood around the kitchen while members of my wedding party started serving other guests.
Response from Michael Pauls Entertainment:
This is not our party? we dont do catering ??
I have to say i had my doubts reading some.of the negative reviews but i gave them a shot. I have to say it was better than i expected. I rented Anna and Elsa characters for 2 hours and for a great price as well. The girls were a bit late but due to the rainy weather i dont blame them, and were nice enough to make up the time and stay longer with the kids. The kids had so much gun taking n pictures, face paint, balloons and story time. The characters had beautiful dresses on and did their part as a character very well. I will definitely book with Michael Paul again and let other people know about his services. We had an amazing time and i have to say the charaters were the icing on the cake for this birthday party.
The first email I ever received from this company was demanding I send my deposit ASAP! (Direct quote). Then after I paid a month in advance and sent in the contract, I still received numerous emails because of lost paperwork. There were over 10 emails sent between them and myself verifying date, time and location. On the day of the party I had to call them only to be told they had the date wrong and we're not able to send out my characters to my kids party. Terrible customer service and professionalism. I'm glad I was trying to keep it a surprise otherwise my son and daughter would've been crushed. Will never book with this company again.
I was given a full refund for my deposit and offered a free party for the mishap. I am going to try to book for July and hope that this time the experience will be more positive.
I had a magic show for my preschool in Altadena, and the children loved it so much. They laughed, cheered, participated in the show and could not stop talking about it after. I was greatly pleased with the show, and will have them back very soon!!!!!
Excellent Service provided for my daughter's 5th b'day party.
We had Princess Belle who was a delight, such a pleasant personality, very patient, agreed at extending her time without any issue, everyone loved her...even the Moms.
We got a server named Sylvia....very very sweet, very helpful, super patient with a very pleasant smile on her face at all times, didn't look tired or exhausted at all till the very end of the party.
We had magic show done by Michael himself....kids enjoyed it a lot, it was very interactive.
Overall a great experience with a very professional & efficient team of people.
I will refer them to as many people as i possibly can!
This is the worst event company I've ever dealt with. I was told that it was $90 an hour for face painting and there was a 'Special' going on for the month of March. For $149, I will get both face paintings and balloons twisting. So I hired both a balloon artist and a face painter.
So, on the day of the party, instead of getting there 15 mins before like it said ON THE CONTRACT, they got there at 3. That was not the issue, the issue was when they send me 2 face painters and a TRASH BAG FILLED WITH PREMADE BALLOONS. I called their boss Michael, and he said that he was just giving me what I asked for. I am currently suing him in small claims court to get my money back.
PLEASE DO NOT HIRE THEM!
Outstanding services. All of thekids were excited and were able to feel comfortable around all the staff. The kids were engaged and excited. The character, Woody, even played trains with the birthday boy. Everyone was enthusiastic, personable and great to have at our party. Looking forward to booking Michael Pauls again!
All the kids were running around with excitment with the characters they picked to be painted on them.
Thank you! For donating time in support of Relay for Life! You were punctual, professional, friendly and fun. I'll definitely call for our next event! Thanks again!
Anya worked well with the children and accommodating their balloon twisting requests. During at which, the whole time, she kept a smile on her face and was great with them.
We Hired Michael Pauls Entertainment Company For My Neice's First Birthday Party, They Did Air Brush Tattoos & Balloon Twisters. The Kids Were Very Happy, and We Are Looking Forward To Hiring Them Again On Our Next Party.
Thanks Michael for doing a great job with our Rapunzel party, she was so awesome, she was great with the kids, awesome games, and kool face painting, very professional and sweet. Will use again!
Do Not hire them
You will be sorry
The company pulled into the parking lot at 2:30. This was the time the show should have started. In the contract it was stated they stated they will be there 15 minutes ahead of time to set-up. They started 30 minutes late. I didn't know the owner was there , he never introduced himself. The owner, Michael stood around and was setting up the magic show. I told him there isn't enough room and needs to put it out further which would be in the sun. Michael stated to me he doesn't want to be in the on due he doesn't like the sun. Michael went over to the teenagers (who were my guest) at the party to apply for a job with his company. INAPPROPRIATE
They were not organized at the party with the games, the characters and the assistants couldn't organize the games correctly in any fashion or the children, they weren't sure on the games to do and nothing ran smoothly, the jokes in the magician show were kind of racist (baby pictures with Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber), the characters and to top off things about the one and half hour show- the owner, his son who between the age of 10 and 12, and the two characters were helping them to the dessert bar without asking or giving an invitation to eat anything. The owner especially kept helping himself. This was a big waste of money and I will not hire them again. No one was impressed. I was ripped off on price for what they did in our contract.
He deleted my review off his site and wrote to me sarcastically thank you for the great review and God bless you! The truth really hurts.
Response from Michael Pauls Entertainment:
Wow, is all I have to say! We have over 70 great reviews and a rival company has the nerve to post this fake review because they are mad that they dont get as much business as us?! Shame on you! I dont even know who this is, but i am working on finding out!
Justin Rivera entertained our kids at our holiday party and they had a blast! Michael Pauls Entertainment made it very easy for us to hire a magician without notice. Michael was easy to communicate with and we recommend their services :-)
An absolute positve and professional transaction. Our guests were amazed at the patience and sincere interaction Rapunzel demonstrated with the kids. She stayed in character til the very end. Her facepainting and art skills were the best I have seen yet. Truly talented staff.
I Had a Party in May 2011 & wasn't very satisfied with the guy they sent out to my party. Made a complaint & to keep me as a satisfied costumer he offered me 2 hours free Face Painting, magic, & balloons. I excepted his offer & They came out on Nov. 19 2011 for my sons 1st birthday, all the kids were happy so i know they did there job right.
LOVED THE SERVICE FACE PAINTING AND BALLOONS, VERY NICE FRIENDLY SPARKY AND NOT ANNOYING, THUMBS UP ,, I WILL BE CALLING AGAIN,,
Working with Michael was a great experience! He arrived early to set up and all the kids were so excited to have their faces painted and run around with their cool balloons. I had such a wonderful expwrience that i am using him again for ma sons birthday in January.
We were so pleased with the quality of work we got from Michael and his team! The artwork blew us away! The balloon twisting was incredible! The kids were real lucky to have such talent available to them! We were so lucky to have found Michael! We never want to let him go! We are going to have him and his crew back every year as our official kids' entertainment! Thanks guys for a wonderful time!!
I just wrote a review and didn't show a 5 star rating, the communication and expertise are excellent!
It was a breeze planning the party with them. They are nice and they responded quickly. They are professional and the kids had fun. The kids loved everything , especially the balloon twisting;) We definitely recommend them to be your party entertainer;)
Thank you for your wonderful art Michael, 25+ kids at our party...yes, 25+. The kids loved his work ... he was really patient and friendly with each. That is difficult to do with 25 rugrats hanging over you, You are an amazing artist! The children and adults had so much fun with your face painting, ballons & magic show WOW !!! I could not have asked for any one better to do the entertainment. I'm glad I found you on line and hope you will be available next year again for Maya's 6th birthday. Thank you so much have a great New Year !!!
Rapunzel was so awesome, great job and super easy to set up appointment and the pirce was more than fair. The best character yet! We will definetly contact and book our next event with no other than Michael Pauls Entertainment, thanks again!
These guys arrived on time and were set up and ready to go at the contracted hour. Amazing first impression, not to mention the return telephone calls and prompt submission of the contract when promised. Mike played music everyone enjoyed, and was able to accomodate those requests made for certain karaoke songs. Daniel did amazing face paintings and balloon art with the kids. They loved him! He looked like the Pied Piper at one point with all of the kids on his heals waiting to be next in line. Great team of guys and very personable.
I hired Michael as a DJ for my wedding. He came through with flying colors. He was not only very professional but also really knew how to read the crowd. He played all the right music to make our reception one of the most talked about in my circle of friends. I would recommend him for any event your having. He does it all!
We booked Snow White for a Birthday Party and the Kids had a great time.. Character was AWESOME, professional, and patient.. She did a great job with face painting and games.. Prices were great!! I will recommend Michael Pauls Entertainment to my friends and family.. Until the next party...
Michael was amazing. I was stressing because of the short notice and I was having problems with other performer's availability and their outrageous prices. I would definitely recommend Micheal Pauls Entertainment.
I hired Michael for my kids birthday party on June 4th, my kids and their friends had a great time!! Thanks Michael and Danny. We hope to see on the next party.
I booked "Alice" for my Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party for my 2 year old daughter. Our Alice was fabulous! She was so great with the kids. The experience exceeded my expectations!
Michael Paul was amazing! His work is awesome and we definitely would use him again. We held a Health Fair conference for families who have children with cancer and the kids and their parents LOVED the face painters! Would definitely recommend Michael to anyone looking for quality!
I gave a tinkerbell fairy party for my daughters 4th birthday & hired tinkerbell & her family friend to come & mingle, the fairies did an awesome job!! They took photos with all the guest & parents, they interacted with everyone, their personalities were bubbly & full of energy! They did a great job!
This is the second year that we use michael for our easter event, they always seem to know what the kids want, kids had lots of fun and the parents were very pleased with the services. We are deffinatly looking forward to our next events with you guys.
We had the Easter Bunny come out to our store and take picture with the kids in the neighborhood and HE WAS GREAT ( i dont remember his name) but he and the young lady that came with him were very professional and a lot of fun. The kids had a ball taking pictures and playing with the Easter Bunny and the young lady totally rocked cause she helped the kids w arts adn crafts. I would use them again for our next event
The female clown made my daughter's 2nd birthday much more fun and happier.
She was so entertaining and goofy. Not a scary clown! Everyone loves to take pictures of her. Highly recommended!
A lot of guests were impressed . What was cute was when the balloon twisters made balloons that look like Kobe (lakers being the theme of the party).One of the guests asked me for your number.
Just hired Michael for the second time for our synagogue's annual holiday party. The kids were thrilled with his designs and the parents were impressed about his talent! Michael is accomodating, patient, and a pleasure to work with. Will be calling him again!
Michael Pauls was the best thing I spent money on for my sons bday party. They did so much with the kids and I will be hiring them for my sons second birthday party next year.
AMAZING!!!! I loved the face painting and the balloon twisting. The kids looked amazing and they were all very happy with their balloons. You guys are awesome I had people asking for your number for their events. Thank you soooo much!
We hired Dora to come paint faces and she was sooooo good with the kids! She's an awesome face painter and had a GREAT, friendly personality. I recommended her to all of my friends for their children's upcoming parties ;)
I would like you to know that Ryan was an AWESOME bartender!
He worked with me, my husband and father-in-law closely.
The second he walked through the door, he knew what to do to get the bar ready for the party.
I had the liquor available, but he set up the bar and got right to it.
He worked very well with my guests too
He was clean cut, wonderful appearance and very friendly.
He is charming, polite, very professional and hard working.
He gave 110 percent.
I highly recommend him to other people and to you to use as your #1 man.
We loved him!!!
I would like to add that I used "Michael Paul's Entertainment" on numerous occasions. I recently hosted a Private Party for my child and it was Spectacular! They're always fully staffed and well organized. Our guests where completely overwhelmed with the entertainment and services their company provided that day! Thank you "MPE" for making our family's event eventful and memorable! (5-star rating)
Had Rapunzel arrive for daughter's 5th birthday party. She looked and dressed the part. My daughter was very excited to have Rapunzel at her party. Rapunzel was very patient and attentive to the children.
I attended this event and I can tell you that Michael and his crew were early and their service was outstanding. For this particular event the customer ordered balloons and face painting. Michael's face painting skills are top notch. All the children were excited and the parents were left satisfied. Daniel (One of Michael's employees) can do anything from a dog to a bicycle with balloon tying.
Unfortunately we had terrible weather on the day of our son's birthday party but they saved the day. We chose the face painting, balloon twisting, and magic show package and it was a big hit. Definitely having them do our older son's birthday party next summer. If I could do it all over again I'd of booked them for longer. They were on time, very professional, and worked with us depite the short notice; can't say enough good things about these guys!
Michael Pauls provided great entertainment for my mother-in-laws 56th bday party. They played great music and the karaoke was a big hit.
Michael is a great Entertainer. I have used his services for each of my kids b-day parties, and my own b-day to wedding parties. He is very professional and knows how to do a great party. And not only that, he's very affordable! Everyone is always happy with his services. We always have a blast! Thank you Michael! (See you at our next party!!)
The Covina Home Depot always makes sure that Micheal Paul's Entertainment is at our event. They always know how to entertain the crows and make the event so much fun. Every time we have booked them the staff was very friendly. As long as we have events I will use all the services they have to offer. If you are looking for a great entertainment please use them for your next event!
Top quality talent, professional party planning. Michael Paul's Entertainment is top notch!
This is my third year I've used this DJ service and it's always been great. As long we hold our annual Christmas functions, I will continue to use this service in the future.
I Hired Michael Pauls entertainment for my nephew's 8th birthday party and I was pleasantly surprised by their professionalism and friendliness. My nephew had a great time with his friends, he especially enjoyed the face painting. After the party my nephew said to me that he had "the best birthday ever". It made my day seeing him so happy.
I hired him for my cousins wedding, the groom and the bride were very happy. They got complements all night from the guest. They played a wide variety of music, had everyone dancing all night. They set up on time, they were professional. I will definitely hire them again in the future. They get 2 thumbs up.
I had my son's 1st birthday party and had rented a snow-cone machine and a cotton candy machine which were a hit at his party. The service was amazing and on time with no hassle. Thanks to every one at Michael Paul's for such a hassle free renting experience. I would definitely recommend them to any one I know :)
My son's 6th birthday was a success. They were great with all the kids who attended especially mine who sometimes can be a challenge. :) Thanks Michael Paul's
I had a birthday party for my daughter and snow white camefor the entertainment. She face painted, made balloons and. Plated various games with the children that won prizes. I was very eased with how much fun the kids were having. I would definitely call back for any other partys or events I will have in the future.
We have used Michael Paul's entertainment for the past 2 years for our Halloween party. Last year we did a haunted circus themed party and we hired a DJ, bartender,photographer, palm reader, magician, and clown...they were amazing. They showed up early were professional and kept the party going all night. This year was no different...we hired a DJ, bartender, and photographer and received the same great service. I would definately recommend them to anyone who wants a fun, reliable party team!
This was the first time I used them, I had heard from a mutual friend, so gave them a call and told them what I needed.....great prices and all very friendly and helpful.
I will not settle for anything less than A+ service! I was completely satisfied and was able to enjoy my event without having to worry about my guests being fully entertained! I would definitely book this guy again for any and all my events!
I had Wolverine for my son's 6th Birthday and it was a wonderful experience. They did face painting and balloons and played fun games with the kids. Girls and boys love seeing participating in every game and activity. I high recommend them for kids parties. I have also been to a Barbie party and other kids parties where they were and have no negative feedback. It is great to see the kids so happy when there favorite character or barbie show up to there party. I will not have another kids party without hiring them to participate.
These guys are great! Everyone had fun, especially the kids.
What a special, magical time everyone had at the party! Michael Paul is such a naturaly fun person and also just a professional at his craft. This company is highly recomended!
The event was very well organized and spaced out evenly. There was face painting and a person who specialized in making shapes out of balloons. There was also a picture booth, food services, and other treats. We enjoyed the time we spent there and the people were very pleasant. They offer alot of different services for any event. I've recommened them to my niece for her kid's b-day parties too. The birthday party they had was done very well and the kids were all taken care of with clown and balloons that were being made for them. We enjoyed the entertainment and the profesionalism they displayed. Thank you.
Michael Paul's provided entertainment for my child's first birthday party. Since it was an important day, I really appreciated the professional service. All staff was polite and efficient. Michael Paul's was also prompt and stayed within the timeline agreed upon. I highly recommend.
Very creatively organized. The kids had a blast. Would hire again.
these guys are AWESOME!
they did a fantastic Job on the DIA DE LOS MUERTOS MAKE UP!!
it made the Party..
plus their entertainers were really Great with the Kids.
i definitely recommend these guys,
they were Fair with their price & they went out of they're
way to fit our budget.
Michael Paul's Entertainment was superb! Our company BIA hired his services for our monthly Membership Lunch Meeting, which took place earlier today! We were very pleased with the Wait Staff's professionalism and lets not even mention their reasonable prices!You will not be disappointed!
Michael did a great job at our reception! Our guest had a great time and loved dancing to the great music. Thanks Micheal!!! Well will be using you for the girls birthday partys!
He was Awesom, made all the children and adults laugh. Very Fun :O)
I hired Michael for my 21st birthday and he was amazing! His professionalism and talent came in handy since I had at least 200 guests with an ecletic taste of music. The music he played pleased everyone and the night was truly memorable; will recommend!
Great event. Great customer service. Everything was great
Michael Paul's was awesome! Loved the entertainment and the party atmosphere. Truly a class act. I highly recommend Michael Paul's. Caters to your needs and tailors to your theme.
Professional, easy to work with. Organized.
Music was great, easy and great communication..kept to my timeline and made to move things along smoothly..got great comments from my guest had us on the dancefloor.
Michael Paul's Ent. DJ'd my bachelorette bash and I was totally relieved that he came through last minute for me! He was professional, appropriately dressed, early, and had everything we requested. Thanks Michael!
They were great, face painter and balloon twister were awesome.
Saw Michael at the West Covina Farmers Market. We really impressed at how talented and experienced they were with both the face painting and the balloon twisting. Every kid I saw that had face painting done looked awesome!! And the balloon animals and characters they made were amazing!!! Good Job guys!!!
Michael Paul's entertainment went above and beyond!!!! We hired them for DJ services and he was more then what we expected or even paid for. The little extras touches were what made our party memorable. I have referred him to many of my family members in the past and I am sure that we will use his services again in the future. Truly a one stop entertainment source!!! Thanks again Michael!!!!
This Clown was awesome, he kept the kids attention throughout the whole 2 hours. What i personally like about the Michael Paul's entertainment was that when was in a bind cause my other clown, who i originally booked canceled and i took a shot with these guys and it was great. He made balloon animals like i never seen before not like from my other clown and a wonderful party cake hat with a balloon candle on top that finished it off at the end. The variety of games that they had were great and it was amazing how the clown did everything including the face painting which some of them were very intricate. Overall loved them and will book them for my next event to come.
They did an amazing job, made my son's 5th Birthday a memorable one. My son's favorite character Spiderman was as entertaining as the real one. The face painting was fast an awesome and the balloon twister guy was young but really really great ( he did things I have never seen other balloon twisters do ) First rate company and there pricing is fair.
WAS AMAZING! The children there were so happy with his staffs performance! The parents loved it because they had someone his staff memeber oversee the children. Parents were able to mingle for a bit. This entertainment company caters to the families and does a great job. Parents were telling us that this was the best kids party they've been to.
I WAS VERY IMPRESSED CAUSE I SAW MICHAEL FACE PAINTING A CHILD'S FACE AND THEY MOVE SO MUCH THAT IT IS VERY HARD TO DO, BUT HE MADE IT LOOK EASY.
Michael Pauls was great! I used his services for my little girls bday and all the kids had a great time! I will definitely use Michael Pauls again!
If you would like to add a complete entertainment package Mike is the way to go. Not only does he he top of the line equipment but he will save you the time from contacting so many services. Michael Paul's is definitely a one stop connection for entertainment. From a professional clown, to a magician and a ballon artist. I Would definitely recommend their services!
GREAT friendly service and personal professional attention, made planning our event easy with the variety of services that they offer. We highly recommend and we will continue to use Michael Pauls services for all our future events business and personal.
