Q: Are you ‘real’ fortune tellers?
A: Nope, we are licensed entertainers. People are amazed by the accuracy of our readings, but they can be totally absurd or silly, depending on what you want.

Q: How many people can you interact with at an event?
A: Readings can be as long or as short as you want. We can work with up to 30 people an hour, per entertainer. You should figure approximately 3-10 minutes per guest.
We also have assistants at larger events to help coddle, prep, and answer more of your guests’ questions. Events for 300-500 are what we typically do, but can easily scale to do an event for up to 1500.
Q: How do you work at large events?
A: You can use several entertainers at once. You can stagger different entertainers through your event. We can use staff to meet, explain, coddle, help, and prep your guests. We can make a cozy, defined space for you with our MicroEnvironment.
Choose decor, props, and furniture to design a space. Create a central entertainment area. Have us stroll, or let us ‘table-hop.’ Use entertainers to enhance ‘flow’–where you get guests to move to an overlooked area at your venue. You can use entertainers to move the crowd to a different area.
Q: What about costumes?
A: We arrive fully costumed according to your specifications.
