From contacting Captain Dan to the day of the party the whole experience was amazing!
Captain Dan put us in the Captains log, we paid our deposit and patiently waited for his Ship to sail into port. I wanted an entertainer who would keep all the children engaged while appreciating that our little girl at times may not take part. Our little girl has autism and does get overwhelmed quite easily. So likes to take herself away. There was no pressure for her to be the centre of attention or be involved if she didn't want to be. When it was time for happy birthday she cried and refused to blow out her candles so Captain Dan Tastic got all the children blew them out for her. I can honestly say the children as well as the adults loved our party. There was lots of squeals and laughter and no one was left out. I've received lots of messages after the party to say how incredible it was. I ordered some sword balloons that were given out at the end and Dan even provided extra incase any got broken. My husband watched the whole show with the biggest smile ever and would now like an excuse to do one for adults only including lots of grog. Can not recommend Dan enough worth every penny and then some!
Captain Dan Tastic was FANTASTIC! We found his party entertainment for our 5-year-old daughter to be first class. It was the talk of both the kids at school and also received rave reviews on the parents' WhatsApp group! From beginning to end, this was a fun character performance that had the kids eating out of his hand and the parents' phones stayed firmly in their pockets as they couldn't help but thoroughly enjoy the show (Facebook could wait). The entertainment was well-written, well-performed, educational by stealth and edgy so as not to be banal yet completely age appropriate.
We also loved the inclusivity, the nod towards gender equality - good man - and a generally wholesome ethos to the show. Dan has a great costume, the accent suits the persona, the props are wide-ranging, interactive and fab (and the tricks had us all a little baffled). It was a genuine delight to see him chasing a fleeing mob of 5-year-olds in the shark suit, with genuine child-like terror simultaneously coupled with faces of absolute glee (a fine balance to strike). Definitely opt for the fuller packages if you can as the start to finish entertainment meant that us as parents/organisers could simply sort the food and let everything else run as planned; we even got to talk to each other. The preceding notes Dan sent about the nuances of planning and putting on a kids party were thorough, a huge help and the mark of a man who really knows his audience. As one mum put it "That was awesome but thanks for nothing in setting the bar so high we'll now struggle to match it" (erm, book Dan again in one of his other guises, obviously!)
Captain Dan Tastic is amazing! I’ve never seen a bunch of kids so enthralled. The way he was with my son was perfect - he managed to make a slightly self conscious 6 year old really come out of himself and embrace being centre of attention. What we really loved is how, at a party full of boys and girls, there was no ‘male’ sway - the girls loved it every bit as much as the boys. It was brilliant to hear Dan talking about how it’s ok for boys to like wearing dresses, and girls to play football etc... so refreshing to hear and a great message to kids. Half the adults in the room wanted to book Dan for a party for themselves, become his friend, or simply BE him. Ha! Amazing! 🙂
I cannot recommend Captain Dan highly enough. When my son said he wanted a pirate magician for his birthday party, I was unsure if I could delivery until I came across Captain Dan. I was a bit worried how engaged 30 3 year olds would be for an hour though I shouldn't have worried at all. All the children stayed entertained for the whole hour and didn't want it to stop. My son came to me and my husband on different occasions throughout the party thanking us and saying how much he was enjoying it. It melted our hearts seeing how much he was smiling and having fun. Dan was fantastic with the children and altered the show to align with their age. When it was the dress up part of the show my son didn't want to wear some of the items and Dan just made a joke of it and went with what he wanted. It was a truly great party and even all of the parents enjoyed themselves and have said it was the best party! I cannot wait to use Dan again in the future for one of his other acts - I hope my other son likes pirates too!!
I just want to say thank you so much for the most amazing party for Oscar's 4th birthday! When I booked you to entertain him and his 20 friends I knew it would be a fab party but It completely exceeded all of our expectations. Not only did you thoroughly entertain the kids, keep them glued to their seats, make them laugh, squeal and scream but you also entertained the adults and looked like you were actually having a ball yourself! The kids watched in awe at meeting a 'real life pirate' and the whole show was action packed from beginning to end. Oscar had the time of his life and will remember his party for a very long time, thank you so much for the fab gift, he loves his treasure chest especially as it is signed by a pirate! For anyone looking for an entertainer with a difference who will wow the kids and the adults, Dan is definitely your man!
