About Us

Here’s a little bit about us, and me, and a big welcome to you!

When I started Handy Entertainment, the focus was on creating magical connections between people. Everywhere I went, it seemed like  everybody was doing the same things, in the same ways. It seemed so…uneventful and predictable. I wanted to move people, change them–most of all, connect them and delight them.

Making things is my passion, especially working on open-ended, goal-driven projects that help people understand things differently.

We are an Atlanta based SBA-certified, Woman-Owned Small Business. Our mission is to connect people at events. Diversity, inclusion, and equity are part of everything we do and everyone we work with.

Handy Entertainment was founded on the principal that everybody is at the table. We create positions for people with physical, intellectual, and emotional disabilities by making opportunities that fit their skills and desires to grow.

We consistently create new and engaging specialty event entertainment for corporate, social, and fundraising events.

We are not for everyone.

Need original, limited editions of interactive entertainment that connect people? We are your people.

Looking for quirky, maybe weird, entertainers to wow your guests? We are your people.

Education, the arts, technology, and multiculturalism are the basis of my ideas, presentations, educational sessions, and projects. These are just a few of the ideals upon which I founded Handy.

I look forward to working with you!

– Jan Levie, Owner, she/her

Our Values

SERVICE

We serve people well. Even more, we work with every kind of person. We are not event planners, but we can help you source what you need for your event through our trusted partners.

DIVERSITY

Our team looks like real people (ok, maybe some are wearing weird make-up and costumes!) because they are real people. We look beyond the surface to the individual so we can provide truly engaging entertainment. 

INCLUSION

We are proud to hire and train people who have physical, emotional, or intellectual disabilities. We can conduct an interview that sees past limitations and spotlights nascent abilities. Then we make the time and have the adaptability to tailor work to the individual.

FAQs

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 1,500 guests.

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. Lip Readings – Chocolate Lip Readings – Coffee and Tea Leaf Readings – Tarot – Palm Reading – Interactive Handwriting Analysis–we connect people.

Zoltar Fortune Teller Booth (free human included), is our most popular item for corporate clients, particularly finance, technology and transportation.

Let Zoltar deliver your news, dividends, prizes, updates, missions, and clues. Use Interactive Handwriting Analysis to put your message on the walls.

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.

We arrive fully costumed according to your specifications.

Some characters:

  • Gypsy Fortune Teller reading palms
  • 18th century Lady interpreting Tarot
  • Neo-Goth Punk reading coffee  cups
  • Little Miss Muffet belting your fortune in lyric form
  • Corporate Quirky doing all of the above!

Event packages range in price based on the type of entertainment chosen, number of performers, location, holidays, day and time, and length of the event. Contact us so we can create the perfect package just for you!

We are fully licensed and insured, and guarantee complete satisfaction.
