Testimonials from parents like you!

After over 2000 shows, you can imagine I’ve received a lot of feedback!  To make this simple for you, I’ve included only the most recent reviews from my clients.  All of the testimonials below are from the past year.  A few of these fine folks have offered to be phone references.  So, if you would like to actually talk to someone on the phone, that can be arranged.  Some of the testimonials are videos and others are simple text.  I’ve done you the favor of transcribing a few of the videos for you – just in case you are reading this page in the office with the sound off!

Birthday Parties: 

This is probably the most popular service I provide.  And, it’s the the one where most parents need a reference.  There are far more magicians fighting for birthday party gigs than schools and libraries combined.  You need to know who you’re letting into your living room and who you are letting around your children.

“Amazing from the start…I interviewed several other magicians…he good with kids and adults…I couldn’t be happier!”

I perform at numerous libraries all throughout the summer.  Each summer, libraries around Orange and Los Angeles Counties host a mariotte of programs for children and families.  Below are just a few quotes provided by program directors.

We had a great experience with you! Arrived in plenty of time to set up, very friendly to staff and audience, magic show was awesome, and the fact that you stayed after to sign autographs and take photos with the kids was above and beyond! Not many performers do that, and the kids really loved it!

Anna Dress

Programs Director , Westminster Public Library

It was a great experience! There was a huge crowd of kids and they were all very excited and seemed to enjoy the performance a lot. The crowd was more than triple the amount we had as our last year’s summer reading performances.

Jennifer Cox

Programs Director , East Anaheim Library

It was a great experience. I especially enjoyed that some of the quiet audience members were pulled on stage to participate.

There is a lot of read tape when performing for schools.  They require very specific insurance and, in many cases, performers need to be fingerprinted.  Being able to perform for them is an honor.

“Best magic show I’ve seen, hands down…I could not recommend him more…fabulous job…Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Stacey Stem

PTA, Travis Ranch Elementary, Yorba Linda

I was impressed by how well he was able to manage all the children during his performance. His performance was very interactive and engaged all of our children ages 2-6.  I enjoyed the safari theme and how he linked each magic trick with a different part of the world.

Reshma M.

Director , Marina View Montessori

Wow!  That was way more than we thought!  You had all of the kids wrapped around your finger.  I’ve never seen them so focused.  Thank you for working with us.  We will definitely have you back next year.
