“The level of service at All Star Entertainment is fantastic. Having been a client for many years, I am consistently impressed by the professionalism of every staff member I have come in contact with. The Viva Voce' Victorian Carolers are absolutely the best!  We hire them every year for our Holiday Candlelight Tours on Friday evenings beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving through the month of December and for Family Day the third Sunday in December.  They are truly amazing!  They are a holiday tradition at Bayou Bend and have been for many, many years now.”

In this day and age, it’s hard to find a company you can trust. All Star Entertainment was recommended to me by a friend, and now I know why – the quality of service I received was outstanding. Keep up the good work!”

"My name is Sarah, and I can attest that Mary is the best. Our daughters went to school together, so Mary and I worked as a dynamic duo on a few events: notably Westside High School's homecoming and prom in the 2005 - 2006 school year, our daughters' senior year. Homecoming with Mary was literally history-making. We decided to shake up the typical obligatory and sparsely attended after-game dance with originality and interactivity. Since Westside was out to "Roast the Cardinals," we went with a Western Chic theme. Because of Mary's connections, we roped in a whole host of entertainers, such as a mechanical calf-roping horse, a mechanical bull, a national award-winning cowboy trick roper and sharp shooter, and even the Wells Fargo stage coach as a photo prop. The DJ was outstanding, playing just the right mix of theme-setting western music as well as the latest club songs to keep the kids hoppin'. Westside's administration remarked that our dance was the most well-attended and successful dance (of any) that the school had ever seen. We couldn't have done it without Mary's connections to first-rate entertainers. And don't even get me started about prom! It would take me thirty minutes to type out how amazing that was, thanks in large part to Mary's expertise and connections.
Once I watched Mary and her clown friends take over the entire Food Court at Katy Mills Mall with laughter, color, choreography, and props in a spectacular comedy clown show. She has no problem 'stealing the show' and mesmerizing young and old alike!

"We have hired All Star Entertainment for many character parties. That's right.... we are return customers many times over and have always found the entertainment to be exceptional and professional with so much detail given to each character provided by this company.
We have been using All Star Entertainment for 10 years. Amongst the other characters we have had at parties we have also hired the Dora show. The kids loved it. The back pack produced many props for Dora and they used a map to find their treasure just like on the Dora show. It was very entertaining. The kids were very much interested and participated with much enthusiasm and enjoyment.
I also am in the entertainment business and know a professional performer when I see one. All Star Entertainment always puts much time and money into producing shows that are entertaining for the children.
To this day the "Loonette and Molly" party is the best!!!!
  • Pros: Well prepared shows that entertain the children
  • Cons: Absolutely none!

Ms. Morris (AKA Starlight the clown) I would like to thank you again for doing Isaiah's 1st birthday party at the Children's Museum.  Everyone can't stop talking about your beautiful face paintings and great balloons!  I am sure you will get some calls for parties from some of our guests.  God Bless!

Hi Mary!
The Mad Hatter Tea Party was truly phenomenal!  I think it took me and my husband a week or two to recover!!  Jerry did an AWESOME job as the Mad Hatter!  I can't begin to tell you how many folks are still talking about him and what a terrific job he did.   I felt bad for him though because the girl we hired to play Alice was late...literally. She attended a party before ours and apparently the host of that party gave her the wrong directions to our house; then she got pulled over by a cop for speeding.  I would have loved to hear her speaking to the officer, "but sir, I'm chasing a white rabbit!"  LOL! I will go thru my pics (over 600 of them) and send you some of the best ones. If you EVER need a reference, please know that you can use me! Have a great weekend and I will get those pics to you this weekend. Thanks again!

Hi, Mary!  I just wanted to thank you for coming and entertaining at Claire's birthday party yesterday.  She had a wonderful time!  She is still talking about "Starlight" the clown!  The kids all had a great time, too!  I will definitely be referring you to other folks.  Several  have already asked about you and I gave them your information so you'll probably be hearing from some of them soon!  Thanks again! You made it a very special day for Claire!  I really appreciate it!

Mary - 
I know it has been a few weeks since you were here but I wanted to thank you for putting on a great show. We received so many positive comments from our owners. So with that being said, I would like to book some entertainment for the 4 of July Weekend.
 It seems that the DJ and the face painting were a huge hit. If possible can we get them re-booked? Additionally do you book any bands that could play down here?

Dear Starlight,
     Just thinking of you.  We asked Julia this morning what was her favorite part of her birthday party and she said, "Starlight!".  She enjoyed your time with us.  You made her laugh and her butterfly balloon  hat still is in good condition today!
     Thank you, again.

Yes, she did my daughter's 8th bday and it was WONDERFUL!!! :D
 
Mary Morris at 2:00am June 21Thank you, Courtney, for the kind and thoughtful comments! I loved doing Becca's 8th birthday party. I cannot believe how grown up she is now. Just reminds me how long I've been in this line of work! Good thing it keeps me on my toes. I honestly think clowning helps us look and stay younger longer. We clowns certainly do not act our age! LOL!
 
 
 
WOW! Spiderman was soooooo GREAT!!   I am really glad I did this for my son, Steven.  All the kids here had a great time!!  Thank you so much for everything! Spiderman was awesome with the kids and very into his character. It was definitely worth it!  Thanks to Spiderman, my son's Birthday Party was Perfect he was SOOOOOOO Happy!!!!!!   You can use me as a reference anytime.  I would not mind the occasional phone call either.  Spidy was great and I don't mind sharing that with others.

The following comments were copied from an email we received on November 2, 2009, regarding the Evercare Fall Festival held in Katy Park on Halloween, 10-31-2009:
 
"I have to say that everyone thought that "Choo Choo"  (Kaye McLaughlin) did an AWESOME job of face painting!  It really impressed David and myself.  It was a treat to work with a face painter, who was an actual face painter.  So many gigs we do, we are teamed with some one that claims to be a face painter, but the quality is not there.  I also enjoy face painting and would love the opportunity to be paired up with Choo-Choo and learn from each other on future gigs. 
As I'm sure you get this, too, (because of it being a Halloween party), but most people thought that we were Evercare employees dressed up as clowns.  It didn't click with some folks until later on that we were "Hired Professional Clowns."  In fact one lady that was volunteer face painting right next to Choo-Choo (who finally stopped after seeing Choo-Choo's work), asked us what's your clown names?  I guess she thought the name tag on my bib was a name brand?  LOL!  Anyway, it turned out to be a beautiful day and I really appreciated the opportunity to work with such a great talent."

The following comments were copied from an email received on July 14, 2010 from our new client, Stacey Harris in Sealy, Texas.
 
Hey Mary, It's Stacey! You did Dora for my daughter on Saturday July 10th. I just wanted to thank you so much for the great entertainment. The kids loved it!  I am so sorry I am late with the "Thanks".  Hope everything was fine for you and you made it to your other party on time.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The following email was received on Monday, August 2, 2010.  The party the client is referring to was a 1st birthday party for her daughter, Mia, held on July 31, 2010.  The theme of the party was Olivia the Pig.  I asked my good friend Jewels the clown if she would be willing to make a clown costume to go along with the Olivia the Pig theme of the birthday party and she readily agreed.  This is Jewels, in her Olivia the pig outfit, with Mia, the birthday girl and next to the photo of Jewels and Mia is a picture of Olivia the Pig!
"Hi Ms. Mary! I just wanted to let you know that Ms. Jewels was a hit!  The kids loved the balloons, face painting & her magic show!  She had all the kids' attention and had them giggling through her magic show!  I would also like to thank you for all your assistance.  I have posted Mia's party pictures on Facebook.  I had my sis try to take as many pics of Ms. Jewels as possible.  Do you think I could have her address so that I can send her a thank you card?   Is she also on Facebook, too?   Ms. Mary, thank you again for all your assistance. Ms. Jewels was such fun and did a superb job on her Olivia the Pig dress!  It made our theme even more special. I will definitely refer y'all to our family and friends.  Hope you have a great evening."

In this email (below) received on 09-07-2010, our client, Monica Hager sent several photos from her daughter's party on Saturday, 09-04-10 and these nice comments about the show:
 
"Sophia had an amazing time and loved the magic show - she is such a sweet girl, I was so happy to create a day for her to remember.  Attached are some pictures.  I hate to say we didn't have too many that turned out great but I hope some of these work for you.  Please let me know if you have any trouble opening the attachments.  I hope that "Elvis" has had a chance to recover from all the attention he received from all of the children!  He was really good with the kids and a nice addition to your show.  Thank you again!
 
Best Wishes,
Monica"
 
These are the photos that Monica sent, taken at Sophia's 10th birthday party magic show!  click on any of the thumbnails for a larger view.  The star of the show turned out to be "Elvis," Starlight's tiny little teacup Chihuahua, who suddenly appeared in the magic box at the beginning of the show!

This email came in on 09-22-2010 from a happy client I worked for last year:
 
"Hello Mary,
     You did face painting last year for National Night Out at the Mills Pointe community out in Katy, and I was wondering if you would be able to do it again this year. You were a HUGE success and they have requested you again this year. The date is Tuesday October 5 from about 6:30 – 8:30. Do you think you’ll be able to make it? We sure would love to have you!"
 
Thank You,

We received this client's testimonial via email on 10-16-2010,  immediately following her business promotional event held in her toy store on 10-15-2010.  Her comments are about Mac Garcia, one of our very best caricature artists:
 
Mac did a wonderful job last night.  We ran out of time for him to do everyone in the store.  We are hoping to have him come back soon for an “Elf Yourself” day where people can get their caricature drawn as an elf for the holidays.  It would probably be a whole day, with a break for lunch, etc.  Can you check Mac's availability and cost? We would like to do a weekend slot if possible.  Thanks.

Hi Mary,
 
 
Last year Starlight the Clown was at my twin daughters’ birthday party. I hope everything went well with you during this year.
My girls and their friends had a great time last year and we would like to have you back this year if you’re available.
 
 
They are turning 8 this year. The party will be on Saturday October 30 from 2 to 5:30 pm. Are you available that day?
We are in Sugar Land.
