About "About Faces"

About Faces has been providing entertainment at events since 1989. Mike Hasson, the founder and owner, started the company drawing caricatures. As his customers began requesting additional caricature artists at their parties, our popularity grew, and we started down the road to being what we are today – a full service agency providing all types of entertainment at corporate events and private parties. 

We are located in Ellicott City, Maryland, and provide entertainers of all types nationwide. Our group of talent ranges from clowns and strolling magicians to stilt-walkers and face painters, with many others in between. All of our entertainers are professionals and many are members of professional organizations.

Mike Hasson is the owner, the Chief Muckety Muck, Head Honcho, Captain of Industry, Big Businessman, Grand Pubah, and all around Really Important Guy.
Also, he takes the trash out to the dumpster on Fridays, and he picks up poop after the office dog.

Lindsay, agent

Lindsay is very, very happy.  It’s almost like she just won the lottery, was proposed to by Danny Zuko from Grease, and was licked by a puppy dog, all at the same time.  Sometimes, when the rest of us are sad, we touch Lindsay on the head, and we’re instantly cheered up.
Terra Harding, agent
Interestingly, Terra holds the current Guinness World record for largest retractable toenails.  She wears very expensive orthopedic shoes with holes in the toes to allow her nails to shoot out, Wolverine style, whenever she feels threatened.  She is an extremely dangerous soccer player.

Michael, agent 

Michael is a triple threat athlete:  Baseball, Football and Chinese Checkers.  He spends much of his downtime whittling endless replicas of the Taj Mahal out of cheese.  If you catch him on a good day, he’ll tell you the joke about the ferret, the rabbi, and the chocolate covered donut.  But make sure your mom is not listening in on the other extension.  Yeah.  It’s that kind of joke.

Morgan Dailey, agent
She is a brand spankin' new agent, and bears a striking resemblance to a popular Jedi mentor.

Jamey McElroy, agent
He models his every action after the immortal Ron Burgundy and lives for the day when he, too, will be able to sport a dreamy Burt Reynoldsesque 80s stache.

Kayleigh Hasson, writer
Kayleigh is convinced she's the smartest one in any room, even though she's fourteen. And she might be right. She’s been helping to create and send out our monthly newsletter since August of 2012.

Kacie Norton, Webstickler
Kacie makes magic happen on the web, creating and maintaining our performer listings.  She was recently voted 'Most Likely to Give Treats' by the dog's association of About Faces Entertainment.

Benny is a seasoned, veteran agent, and is in charge of training new agents and eating cardboard. He does not put his nose in trash cans. He does not.
Pam Hasson, uncertified private accountant
Beautiful Pam Hasson handles the books. She cashes the client's checks, and, just as quickly, sends out checks to the performers. Emergency calls on the weekend get routed directly to her, and then she yells at Mike, her husband. So don't make any emergency calls.

These are Pam and Mike's little girls, Maddie, Kayleigh and Audrey. Maddie is a budding caricature artist. Kayleigh is about ready to take over the business. And Audrey is planning on becoming a clown (she practices a lot). Aren't they horribly, horribly cute?

Please contact us for further information regarding your event.
