Checkers Entertainment was absolutely outstanding! He provided entertainment for our little girl’s 8th birthday party. His magic show and balloon twisting were remarkable! He was funny and witty, both entertaining for kids and adults. Very much like a great Pixar film or Disney movie. We were impressed with his ability to keep a group of 20 little kids engaged and laughing. He was punctual, very polite, and simply a joy to be around. We sincerely cannot express just how special he made our evening. Thank you for sharing your gift with us and creating unforgettable memories for our family and friends!

Checkers made this a fun easy birthday party. He kept all 15 kids entertained for an hour, and kept control of the room and made the birthday child feel extra special.

Fun for the whole family! Checkers came for my son’s 9th birthday and I think the grownups had as much fun as the kids!

Checkers is great with children. I’ve hired Checkers for many events, the most recent August 4, 2018. He is always on time, patient with the kids and entertaining. He can do great comedy magic and balloon art. I will continue to hire him.

I recently had occasion to contract Checkers (John Fite) to do strolling entertainment and balloon twisting for a corporate family event. John was thoroughly professional and did an outstanding job! I would not hesitate to secure his services for any fun family event. John Rainone – Poppy Productions – Dallas
