Tickles the Clown Reviews

                                         
  • Love Tickles the entertainer - she's worth booking!!!
    Tickles is a terrific entertainer. She not only holds the attention of the children, but also of the adults. Her comedy is original and she can think fast on her feet (children can ask some interesting questions). She comes prepared and polished. I recommend her to anyone planning a children's event - not just for birthdays. Her rates are really reasonable!

    The Best Children's Entertainer We've Ever Seen!
    I can't begin to express how thrilled we were with Tickles the Clown! We had seen a good clown at a party but she wasn't available, which was a stroke of luck because we then went to Thumbtack and found Tickles. The entertainment and laughter started the moment she walked in the door, and what BOUNDLESS energy she has!
    She began with exceptional face (or arm) painting (my son loved the shark she painted on his hand, which worked like a puppet since he could make it's mouth open and close by moving his fingers). My niece loved the full face rainbow butterfly. She pretty much could paint whatever they asked.
    Then came the magic show using the children as her assistants. Even the grownups were captivated. The magic wasn't David Copperfield stuff, but she was so FUNNY, and when the kids were howling, so were the adults. Everyone loved the show.
    It's clear that she loves what she does. She says she has a preschool Safety-themed comedy magic show and a (non-clown) storytelling program, so we'll definitely be recommending her to my child's preschool.

    She was AWESOME!!! We needed a clown for my son's first birthday party. She was professional and easy going. She came on time and there was literally only two kids there and offered to leave and come back at no extra charge. She came back when the rest of the children arrived. She did face paints, had story time and made balloon animals she had the children totally engaged the whole time. I would highly recommend her.

    I hired Tickles for my 5 year olds birthday party, as a magician, clown, and face painter. I could not have been happier with how it turned out! She was so wonderful, pleasant, and amazing with children! We had contact through email to answer any questions I had, called the day before to double check everything, and showed up right on time in character and ready to go! Her rates were so reasonable-My other option was one of those Bounce places--it was going to cost almost 500 dollars. Tickles was much more reasonable and in the comfort of our own home.She did beautiful face painting for all ages, and was very comfortable in the chaos of my small home. Her magic/clown act is perfect for ages 3-7 I think. We had about 10 kids in that age range and they laughed the whole way through! After Tickles left, all the adults commented on how wonderful she was, and what a great job I did in hiring her! Thank you so much Tickles, my 2 year old keeps asking when the clown is coming back! I recommend her to anyone and would hire her again!

    I first met Rachelle at School for an Assembly. The Kids loved her!!
    So when it was time to set up something for my girls birthday, I immediately thought of her. The party was a GREAT success. Parents and Children loved the story telling and everybody LOVED the "tattoos".
    This year the girls have asked for her again!!!!
    I truly recommend Rachelle!

    I am a "Tickles" lover from way back. She has been giving shows for many years to our Montessori Preschool. Her playful humor has made the children laugh. She also engages them without being condescending. Even the little guys who have at first been fearful are won over by her enthusiasm.

    Tickles the Clown performed at an event for me, and I could not have made a better choice. Not only did she hold the kids' attention and got them participating, but she had both the kids and the adults laughing out loud. I really think I had just as much fun as the little ones did. This clown has the energy of 3 clowns in one, and she's just adorable. Her facepainting was excellent, probably the best I've seen, and she even uses her facepainting time as an opportunity to entertain. Will definitely have Tickles back next year!
