My daughter had no idea who Jack Sparrow was when she attended her best friend's party and Connor was there. From then on, she talked about nothing but him- so we hired him 3 months later for her 5th birthday party. Connor was amazing! He does a fantastic job in character from start to finish. The kids ranged in ages from 1 1/2 to 10 and they ALL had an incredible time. Connor has an incredible presence and energy which engages every kid but is not intimidating, in fact a lot of my daughter's very shy friends loved swordfighting with him and their parents were so pleased to see them coming out of their shell. Our guests had a blast and are still talking about it and my daughter had the 'best birthday ever.'
