This was our second time with Mr. Joel, and he was great. No hassle, on time, one hour packed with entertainment.... Kids loved every minute. Highly recommend.
Response from Mr. Joel: The Kid's Komedian:
Thank you for you kind words and a great party!
Joel was great. He entertained 20 3-yr olds, and did a fantastic job. We didn't want one of those formal sit-down shows - so he was flexible and accommodating. Everybody had a great time. Highly recommend.
