    Excellent performer!!!
    Timothy James did a great job entertaining the guests for my husband's 40th surprise birthday party. He was easy to get a hold of, punctual, and did a great job of involving the guests. Everyone was impressed with his tricks. Would recommend him and use him again if needed.

    Tim Is A Master In Prestidigitation (Illusion)
    This is no birthday magic show. A true professional who blends a comedic touch with excellent illusions, Tim is certainly a must at your next event. Performing in front of over 150 special guests, Tim performed some great rope, balloon, and card illusions which ended with the guests amazed when he inserted several chance variables to wow the crowd. This was followed by thirty minutes of intimate and very humorous close up shows for five tables. Participants said they had never seen such amazing magic in their lives. If you are looking for a real treat at your next event, hire Tim. You and your guests will be talking about it the next day. We did!

    Tim was to do a walk around while other things were going on or getting started. Afterwards many people commented to me about how good he was and the tricks they saw and how he made them laugh. As the host,, I was busy so only saw him once, he had a family laughing so hard the son was falling out of his seat. I saw the trick and still cant imagine how he pulled it off. A huge thank you Tim. You were a hit!

    Hi Timothy, I have a say, you rocked our daughter's birthday with your magical show. Every kid had such a great time including Sahana.
