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.

Check out our Clients' Comments on our staff and our entertainers!

Mike Hasson, owner, 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.

Terra Harding, Office Supervisor, Booking 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.

Jay Thomas, Invoicing, Booking Agent
Tiny but fierce, Jay goes by the nomme de guerre of honey badger to all but her closest friends, who know enough to call her sir.

Brooke Iser, Booking Agent
Truly talented, Brooke once successfully navigated the English Channel while continuously hula hooping the entire way, balanced on a baby seal.

Samm Fenton, Team Leader, Confirmations Manager, Booking Agent

Samm is known for her love of dogs and hatred of elephants.  She’ll book you entertainment for your Howlaween Party or Dog’s third Anniversary bash.  But don’t ask her about your elephant’s first birthday entertainment.  That dog don’t bark.

Jamey McElroy, Team Leader, IT and Online Presence Manager, Booking 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.

Emily Hasselman, Booking Agent

Voted by her college classmates 'most likely to fit an entire cheese puff in one nostril,' Emily makes every effort to exceed expectations.

Christine Rosencrans, Booking Agent

On a bet (she says), Christine once spent a full week in makeup and costume, posing as Benedict Cumberbatch.  Sadly, though, no one noticed.  She still signs autographs,and speaks in a vaguely British accent.

Audrey Hasson, writer

Audrey looks like she's an adorable 11 year old, but in reality, she's a bitter,twisted old man, masquerading as a ghost to scare meddling kids, and perfecting his plans to take over the tri-state area for evil.  Until that is complete, she writes our monthly company newsletter.

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, Office Dog

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.

Caricature by Mike Hasson  

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?
