Her is the situation with this company, Awesome Family
Entertainment's Curtis Euegene Lovell the 2 ( the ower and operator) hires several entertainers such as, clowds, magicians, facepainters and caricature artists.

Mr. Lovell is well known to many entertainers in the buisiness for hiring them, but doesn't pay them, especially, caricature artist, Dj's and clowns.

In Columbus, Ohio 2000 Curtis Euegene Lovell 2 was sued by many of the entertainers in small claims court for several thousands of dollars, in which was owed to many entertainers. Euegene did not appear in either of the court hearings. Later, he filed Chapter seven (bank rupt). This allow Euegene to scamed the these entertainers.

The whole ordeal was feature on a local news channel, (Trouple Shooter 6), a segment that features con artist and crooks like Curtis Euegene Lovell 2 of Awesome Family Entertainment.

Warning! this individual is still in business and continues to scam entertainers. He uses a New York City address, but probably lives in Columbus, Ohio. He typically appears to be courtious and professional. Get your money up front before you render your services and become a victim!

Eugene's pervious address or perhaps his true location is
238 Collins Ave. Col, Ohio 43215

Columbus, Ohio

My Experience was Excellent with this Company

AUTHOR: Kim K - ()

I came across this and I am very schocked to read such. But at the same time, I am glad that it seems not to be true in regard to my personal experience with this company. I found them to be very polite, professional and honest. They sent me an invoice, a copy of my receipt and followed through with their services as promosied. IT has been about two months and non of their entertainers have called and mention any faul play with their payment. 

Here is my review on their services that I recieved.

My boss, our guests and myself was very pleased with the services that we have recieved. I am more than glad to leave the following review for this company.
First, Their Santa Claus was one of the best Santa's I have ever seen. His wife was as magical as she socialized with the kids as they were waiting to see Santa Claus. Now I understand why they ask for top dollar for this Santa. Well worth blowing the company budget. But don't worry it isn't too bad!
In addition, They provided us with some holiday elves that did wonderful face painting. Who would had imagine elves did face painting- I thought they made toys. lol
We also rented a couple of concession machines to add to the festivities of our holiday winter party. They were in nice condition (better than most rental type of items) and the operator was very friendly and clean cut.
Again, I am very pleased to write this review on this "Awesome" company.

First, I have been in business for over 15 years with thousands of satisfied clients, which many refers our services to their family, friends and co-workers.  I take each event seriously and my goal is to provide your special event with great entertainment. I find this report upsetting and a bit disturbing, since I work very hard for our clients to provide them with quality services and free party planning advice. Even more disturbing, I know this review is very misleading (over 10 years old) and this website does not provides a recourse or validation of reports that are made.  I encourage you to read these links about this site and draw your own educated conclusion:


Mr. Joseph who filed this report was a formal entertainer with a company that was purchased under the A -F-E name.  Sadly, the original business owner failed to pay many entertainers. I took care of what I thought that I was personally responsibly for and I kindly explained the situation to the ones that were not paid. A few understood and a few went on to post these type of postings. I have many entertainers that have been with me for over 10 plus years. They don't care for this report either, because they have worked hard to build our entertainment group and  it seems Mr. Joseph works hard to destroy our brand instead of focusing on his own positive future. 

If you look at sites  like Gig -Masters, Gig -Salad and a few others, you will notice that we have positive reviews. These, sites only allow ACTUAL clients to post!

I personally encourage my current clients and future clients to speak with me personally if they have any questions or issues regarding this matter or other concerns.

Until next time, have a wonderful life filled with happiness and parties!
