We hired John for a company party and I was incredibly impressed with the entire experience. I wasn't sure what to expect when hiring a magician, but John is a complete professional. He was organized and courteous on the phone, and gave us all of the information we needed well ahead of time. He even worked with us to make sure he was a good fit for the event. During the party, he was consistently entertaining without being annoying or intrusive. I feel like "magic" as entertainment can be pretty hit or miss, but John was consistently blowing our minds while somehow still being down to earth and relatable. Overall, a fantastic experience and I'm hoping to find an excuse to hire him again soon.

John was hired to entertain at a leadership event for the Pasadena Tournament of Roses, presenters of The Rose Parade and The Rose Bowl Game. John absolutely knocked it out of the park! We were captivated by his charming, witty banter and blown away by his magic tricks. There was some concern prior to the show as to how well any magic show could work in a virtual meeting but within the first minute, all fears were allayed. John had the audience in the palm of his (very skilled) hand right from the start. The chatter during and after John's performance was completely positive, consisting of "How did he DO that?" "This guy is AMAZING!" "I am astonished!" Our members also appreciated the way John customized his show to our organization, incorporating our theme, our swag and even our leaders into the show. We highly recommend the talented John Accardo.

This was a great experience! I had John perform magic for my guests at my husband’s birthday party and he was incredible. It was a huge hit. Everyone loved it! He was easy to work with, very professional, and his magic was unbelievable. I’ve already hired him for next year!

John is an incredible magician. I have seen him in close-up magic venues on multiple occasions and each time is even better than the last. Not only is his magic innovative and well-executed, but his skills as a performer are unmatched. His best quality is his sense of humor, so each magic show is also a great comedy act. I cannot recommend him enough!
