Thank you Marty and Iris!
It was such a pleasure having you join us on the The Early Show for our big Halloween Spook-tacular.  You both brought an enchanting energy to our plaza that made everyone feel special.  The kids were captivated by the magic show by Marty and our anchors and viewers at home all enjoyed to beautiful works of art Iris created.
You certainly made for an extra Spook-tacular time!

Hi Marty and Iris.

 Thanks again

Hi Marty & Iris,
You did a fantastic job at our daughter's 8th birthday party. You were not at all affected by 20 screaming and excited 8 year olds and their sibling.
Both the face painting and the comedy magic show thrilled the children. You were very good with the children. You have a wonderful system where you
got everything under control and everyone had a great time. Before the show started, Marty gave every child a number, so that the children knew when
their turn was to be face painted. We did not have a long line.

The comedy magic show had a variety of different kinds of tricks. The children were part of the comedy magic show. The children volunteered to
participate in the fun. Everyone was laughing and having fun. While Marty had everyone's attention, Iris was face painting, one child at a time.
She worked quickly so that everyone had a chance to be painted. The face painted faces of the children looked like they could have performed in a
Broadway show, the work was so good. One of our guests commented that their daughter looked as if she could be performing in the Chinese Peking Opera.
Thank you,

Marty and Iris we can't thank you enough for everything.  The party was great and you just brought more excitement to the party.  All the children enjoyed themselves as well as the adults.  It was great having you apart of Omar's special day.

 Thank you,

Dear Marty & Iris,

You are in a league all of your own when it comes to entertaining children. You are prompt, organized, pleasant, kid friendly and your work was the best we've ever seen.

All the faces Iris painted were breathtaking works of art with whimsical details only a true artist would know how to deliver. Marty'??s comedy magic show was ideal for the children.

The children volunteered to be part of the show. They loved it! They laughed and had a great time. To say we are ecstatic would be an understatement.

We  HIGHLY recommend you to anyone considering party entertainment for an event.

Thank you,

Dear Marty & Iris,

Thank you so much for the marvelous entertainment you provided at my nephew, Ka'darrel's 1st birthday and my niece, Leilani's  5 th birthday celebration.  Marty, everybody loved your magic show - I loved how you got everybody, even the adults involved when you went around the room and did your card tricks.  Iris, your face painting was amazing;  you were so gentle and so sweet!  Scatz was a wonderful surprise extra.  His balloon making was superb; I mean, the balloons he made was not like the simple sword.  Anything the kids asked for he was able to make on the mark for i.e. Kaden loves Spiderman, he asked Iris to paint him to look like Spiderman (awesome job, Iris!)  and to top it off, Scatz made him a spider web.  My family's favorite balloon was the" fishing pole with a catch".  I don't think you guys knew that my family is in the seafood business, so that was very neat!  And to top everything off, Elmo! - Thanks for the visit ... (Marty)  

Marty, Iris, Scatz, and Elmo, thanks for making this celebration a special one.  You guys are the best!  Its been a week and my friends and family are still talking about the party.  I'll definitely see you guys again.


P.S.  The pictures on the website look great!  Thanks for posting them.


Dear Marty and Iris,

Thank you for a spectacular day yesterday... everyone had a wonderful time and the face painting was exquisite... thank you again so much.

Dear Marty and Iris,

Thank you so much for providing entertainment for our son's first birthday party!
Iris did a great face painting job.... She is very artistic and creative...
And I am also happy to say that her face paint make-up did not give me any bumps or zits.... 
I did not even feel itchy....  I have sensitive skin and usually react to the slightest cosmetic on my face...
Her make-up must be of high-quality stuff.
Martyís Comedy Magic Show was marvelous. He made everyone laugh and have fun.
And we are happy that you brought along your cousin to provide additional entertainment.  His act also kept the kids entertained... Everyone had a great time!  You guys were very warm and funny.....  Everyone loved you guys!
Everyone kept on saying our party had the best entertainment they'd seen...And these came from parents who had been to a LOT of children's parties and who had watched a LOT of children's party performers....
You guys rock!
We definitely will be repeat customers..... And I got a lot of inquiries on how to reach you guys so I am sure my friends will be future customers of yours too!

Iris is truly talented and creative. Her facing paintings are spectacular. My daughter and I even went to dinner with our faces still painted and got tons of compliments. Thank you for helping me create wonderful memories for Jada. All the best to you both and continued success.

Dear Iris and Marty,

Thank you so much for making Raphael's' 5th birthday party a complete success!!! People have been stopping me in the hallways to tell me what a wonderful time they and their children had at the party. They were awed by the face painting, and the magic show was so much fun for the kids! Marty, you really know how to handle children and adults of all ages, all at the same time!!!

On a personal note, it was great seeing you both, and it was a lot of fun to finally see you two in action. You are the dynamic duo!

Thank you so much for your generosity and I hope that we keep in touch more often and that we get to see you soon.

Debbie, Alan and Raphael


Hi Marty & Iris

We just want to thank you both for the entertainment provided at our son's first birthday party on 27 March 2004. The kids and adults had a great time making sand art pendants, spin art, getting their faces painted and the magic show. Some adults are still talking about the magic show. I am sure that some of them will contact you for future parties.

Once again, thank you and keep up the good work.

Hello Marty, Iris and friend:

Thank you for the wonderful job that you did on Sunday November 14, 2004 at Dyese's 5th birthday party. I was apprehensive about having to entertain so many children, but you guys just came in and organized the kids so easily, and in no time they were having a great time. Iris did a great job with the face painting and the animal balloons and sand art were also a big hit. The kids and adults all loved the magic show and I must thank you for making Dyese your assistant. She felt so important. The feedback from both parents and kids has been great you now have many new fans.

Thanks again for a wonderful time.

Marie & John Drigo

P.S. the pictures on the web site are awesome, I have been telling friends and family all over the nation to log on and they are just as exited as I am about them.


Hi Iris & Marty,

I would like to thank you for a wonderful performance at my house yesterday. All my family liked the show, especially the magic act with Kenny with the soda bottles. They are still asking me how you did it. I have been receiving calls from my aunts saying that was a wonderful show, and that the kids really enjoyed it. They liked the sand art, spin art and the face painting. Tell Iris for me, that she is very professional, and that  she paints beautiful and has an imagination to project her paintings.

Everything was wonderful, marvelous!!!!!!

Thank you so much.

Dear Marty,

Thank you for your contribution to the Playground Program series in Prospect Park. Because of performers like yourself the Prospect Park Alliance is enabled to introduce young children to the arts and cultural resources of New York City. The 2001 Imagination Playground Program series, our first series ever was very successful with crowds ranged from 50 to 350 performance.

The children and their parents had a great time with the comedy magic story telling. Your presentation was both educational and fun for all.

We are looking forward to you performing in our next Playground Program.

On behalf of the New York City / Parks & Recreation, I would like to thank you for your excellent magic show presented at our 56th annual Easter Eggstravaganza in Central Park. You did a fantastic job entertaining thousands of families with your skillful tricks and balloon twisting.

Your professionalism and preparation personally impressed me. It is always a pleasure to work with someone who is prepared, on-time, and ready to deal with surprises. You handled the crowds and the four hours of hot sun with ease.

Thank you again for your participation in our 2002 Easter Eggstravaganza.
