I hired John for my father's retirement party. I knew 2 guests were fans of magic but found out afterwards that 4 people were also big fans-and all of them were VERY impressed! I had never seen a magic show in person but wanted a unique experience as a surprise treat. I did my research and asked a bunch of questions. From the very beginning, I was impressed by the quick, professional, kind responses I received in a very timely manner which I appreciated very much. It is the first time I signed up for someone coming into our home so I was hesitant but was quickly at ease. The setup was quick. Several of the 15 guests were chosen to participate and all were happy to do so. I was blown away by how truly magical the show was. I am very pleased and would definitely recommend John to anyone looking for a professional experience with an awesome magician! Thanks John!!

Details: Birthday party • Close up magic show • 11 - 20 guests • 18 or older • 11 - 14 years old • Private residence (indoors)

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!

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's attention to detail, knowledge of our organization, work ethic to assure that all magical moments occurred as needed, and overall entertainment style and approach, was superb. We would highly recommend him for any corporate, non-profit, fundraising or other event. Family friendly as well. We were very pleased.

John was amazing. I personally do not simply throw out accolades or endorsements at will. But his entire performance came with great energy presence and showmanship. He was able to not only engage with the audience but his timing, banter and ability to pivot and captivate over 150 attendees for our leadership kick off event. Did I fail to mention that he was able to perform this VIRTUALLY! People were blown away and still talking about it days later. Kudos “ Mr Magic Man” (I decided to give him that nickname).
