A very VERY special thank-you to our “Actor” and Andi. Both were exceptionally professional and Andi, especially, went above/beyond – I didn’t realize how much I’d need her assistance and she jumped in so willingly. Both of them really represented you guys so well. We’ll certainly be calling you again if/when we ever need more character help. Y’all run a great show and we’re thrilled to have you as a resource! Alisa W.

“Characters for Hire did an amazing experience for my son’s birthday. They were very personable and the costumes were excellent. Could be better versed in the storyline but not everyone is a fanatic. The actors were professional and I would hire again for another event should the occasion arise.” Don J.

“The event would not have been a success without the participation of you and your team. I look forward to working with you again soon!” Nicole G.

I would like to thank you and your actors for giving my son the best birthday ever! OMG I can not express my appreciation. When the kids saw the characters come out and perform, They were blown away! The actors were so professional and worked very well with the children. Xavier S.

“Hired characters to come to my son’s 5th birthday party. The kids loved it and made it a memorable experience. He battled them and then they all took turns taking photos with him. It wasn’t cheap by any means but in my opinion, it was worth the cost. Definitely a great alternative to the magician/clown options out there for kids entertainment.” Chuckles W.

“These guys did a great job. Costumes were excellent, the actors stayed in character throughout and they were great with kids. Would hire again. Communication and confirmation prior to event were top notch as well.” Srihari H.

“Just a quick “thank you”for helping arrange a character to come to my Dad’s 60th surprise party this past weekend. It was a huge hit, and my Dad had a BLAST. The actor in costume was hilarious – speaking – funny – with everyone, dancing, giving hugs, posing for pictures, picking up my Dad in a bear hug and bowing to my puppy, who was dressed as a Princess! If we ever need another character for any party or occasion, you’ll be the first we call! I’m happy to write a letter of recommendation or website testimonial, whatever you need! Thanks again so much – it was a huge hit and everyone loved it!!” Aly C.

“Hi, guys! (I’ll be collective to the team [grin] – I just wanted to thank everyone for helping us rock our event – hate to be all cheesy but there’s no better way to explain it – Your character was the HIT of the party (hah. party.) and my husband and his team made so many new contacts because of him – WELL worth all the planning!!!” Pamela S.

“Hired Characters for Hire for my daughters 5th Birthday and boy was she excited! Character was great with the kids and all had a great time! Would recommend this company in a heartbeat!” Michael B.

“On very short notice Characters for hire provided awesome entertainment for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. People can’t stop talking about the great entertainment!!! Thanks NICK!!” Geoff G.
