We hired Jamie to perform at out church. His show was a hit! It was designed for the kids but the adults loved it too. Jamie has a knack for communicating. His wit and ability to improvise as the situation changes is admirable. He knows how to deal with a house full of kids even when they start acting up. He knows how to respectfully calm the kids down and continue with his show. He's very professional and I highly recommend him for any event. This was money well spent.
I have had Jamie perform numerous times at schools where I served as principal. He was always effective, efficient, professional and prepared. The children and staff truly enjoyed his shows and they were never the same. He made them laugh and enjoy themselves. I would hire Jamioe again, should I have the funds or opportunity. (this review doesn't allow me to input the fact that I am now retired and do not have access to the dates he performed.)
I hired Jamie for a family event and he exceeded our greatest expections. He was professional, entertaining, and completely charming. I would highly recommend him for any and all types of events. He dealt with even difficult guests with grace and humor. Everyone went away thoroughly impressed. He made my event!
