Being a new to Thumbtack and unfamiliar with its processes, I was a little wary about hiring a magician from the site for my son's magic themed 1st birthday party. Despite my initial reservations, I went ahead and booked Todd Reis for the event. From the initial filling out of my information on the Thumbtack website, all the way through to the end of his performance, the experience with Todd Reis and Thumbtack was seamless. Prior to the actual date of the party, Todd was readily available to answer questions via email. He showed up on time to the event, was highly professional, and truly entertaining. Since I wasn't sure about how this service worked, for those who are also in the dark, the series of events went as follows: *First I chose what kind of performance I was looking for, & filled out information which included the price I was willing to pay for a performance/service. *Next, I received offers from various performers/magicians to complete the service at/around the price I quoted. *After reading reviews and weighing the pros and cons of each profile, I clicked a link on Todd's profile to hire him for the event. *After a few more questions about the details of the event, he was booked. I was not required to pay a deposit, but I paid in full by cash at the event. *Todd showed up on time and ready to go! He walked around and mingled with the guests as he wowed them with various magic tricks. I would hire him again through Thumbtack in a heartbeat!
Chazz's performance was great and I would recommend him to those who are looking to book a magician.
This magician had complete command of a room of 25 kids, from 5 to 7 years old. The adults enjoyed him too. I couldn't get over the facial expressions of my girls. They were both so animated as they watched him. He made their joint birthday party a complete success. What a hard worker, he had so much energy, made everyone laugh, and was very sweet with the kids.
Outstanding performance by a skilled magician! He tailored the show for my 95 year old father as well as engaged the rest of the audience in great participation that they all clearly enjoyed. He is very personable and focused on the "close-up" work we requested. He combined some standards like the ring interlocking with some great effects no one had seen before. He provided the perfect event for this special birthday!
I am the current President of the I.B.M. Ring 21 the Hollywood Chapter A magic Club. And we had Bob perform for our group (a bunch of magicians) and he did a wonderful routine. Everyone was baffled and amazing everyone in the audience. I believe anyone who hires Bob to perform Magic for them will have a wonderful time.
Harvey was a great asset to our event. He arrived early and didn't leave until every child was happy. Harvey performed kid friendly magic for the crowd of several hundred but had a way of making you feel as if he were giving each person a private show. His balloon creations will be most kids highlight of our event. He worked diligently creating some truly incredible designs. The balloon monkey was a huge hit. I strongly reccomend Harvey for any party in need of a magician and or someone to wow kids and adults with some out of this world balloon creations. Thanks again Harvey!
This was an awesome experience! From the instant I booked Karl Washington I knew I had made the right decision. He called me soon after I had booked him and asked me details about the event - the type of event, age range, the lay out of the house, the flow of the party, etc. He was truly interested in customizing the experience to meet my needs. It was my son's 18th birthday and keeping a room full of fifty 17 and 18 year old kids entertained is a challenge - but he said he was up to it -- and he proved it!! He arrived on time and ready to go. His "walk around" close up magic was mesmerizing and actually drew my son and his friends away from the XBox tournament that had monopolized their time until Karl's arrival. I had booked him for two hours and after about an hour of up close magic which consisted of card tricks, rubber band tricks and other slight of hand illusions, he prepared the stage show. Everyone enjoyed the entire show, which included live animals, rope tricks, rings, and a bunch of other great magic tricks that kept their attention the entire time; I joked that if they had paid as much attention in AP English they would all have scholarships! He included guests from the audience quite a bit which was a big hit -- it as so exciting to see the kids call out their friends, joyously chanting the name of the next "volunteer." Karl's friendliness, engaging personality and humor stood out to me - I am sure that many magicians can pull off tricks, but not all can engage a group of teenagers in fun banter; he made people laugh as much as made them gasp in disbelief. I would hire Karl again in a heartbeat!
David was absolutely remarkable. Such a wonderful addition to a pretty intimate luncheon for 14 ppl. But it really livened up the party and allowed the adults to return to their childhoods and immerse themselves into magic close up. David was super charismatic, professional and attentive to every single guest. He's clearly a very talented magician but also a great showman.
Zach came to my husband's Surprise 40th Birthday Party. I know my husband is a fan of magicians, so I was hoping for one who would impress my husband. Zach was there for the duration of the party as a roaming magician. He was very friendly and engaged the guests in a humorous way. He was amazing at learning and remembering the names of the guests, even though there were at least 60 people who watched him perform his magic throughout the time. Everyone I spoke to was incredibly impressed with his magic skills. He really added to the fun of the party and is certainly worth the money we paid! Looking forward to see him perform at The Magic Castle sometime.
Jonathan Molo! What a tremendous talent. I've had the joy of having Jonathan Molo perform at several parties for both children and adults. He has clearly devoted many years of hard work and dedication to his craft because he makes his magic appear effortless and extraordinary, two keys to a great magician. Aside from his skill, Jonathan Molo is an engaging, funny and charismatic performer who can bring a smile to the faces of both young and old even without the magic. I highly recommend you catch Jonathan Molo's next performance near you.
Booked James for my kids' birthday party. He was fastastic and kept all of the children thoroughly entertained! My youngest now wants to be a magician! Would definitely recommend. Thumbs up from me!
Marty is a fantastic magician! He is entertaining, enthusiastic, and very skilled. We highly enjoyed his performance and look forward to seeing more in the future.
My husband and I were planning a business party for about 300 people and wanted to make it special by having some "strolling" entertainers. Neither of us knew much about magicians but were really put at ease by Kristoff's responsive interaction and help. The night was so much fun and Kristoff was a big part of the night's success. He spent time before the party getting to know something about who would be in attendance and planning special tricks for specific groups of people...what a blast! Will definitely hire him again! His wife coming along for photo taking and guest interaction was a pleasant bonus! Worth every penny!
I have worked with Chipper for many years. I have hired him as a guest solo entertainer and contracted him to do his full production show. No matter what the venue or the demographic Chipper has always been a smash hit. His comedy is hilarious and his magic is astounding. I would highly recommend him for any type of event.
Brian Gillis is a phenomenal magician! He had the perfect blend of mystery, talent and charm to keep the audience enthralled and amazed. Performance after performance he had everyone laughing and scratching their heads on WTF just happened?! Definitely fun and entertaining! But heed my warning you might leave wracking your brain on how the heck did he do those magic illusions! You might get institutionalized. Because as you know a magician never tells...
Her work, passion and LOVE for what she does is PRICELESS. She literally lives and breathe being Whirlie The Clown and that is what seperates her from everyone else. Many of my family and friends who were at my son's 1st bday party were totally impressed and blown away! She is worth your every penny, everyone from all ages will have a great time. My only regret is that I wish I would have dropped the magician (he did a great job and has hundreds of great reviews here on Thumbtack, goes to show you her minimal reviews don't do justice) and hired Whirlie for ALL 4 hours instead of splitting them up. It's not that the Magician was horrible, absolutely not, WHIRLIE IS JUST AWESOME. Looking forward to doing business again with you, Whirlie! We love yah!
Joe was everything I could have hoped for. I hosted a small appreciation event where we had a private suite at a concert. Rather than a regular show, I had asked Joe to mingle with the guests and entertain as he saw fit. Joe was as HUGE hit with the guests and they couldn’t stop talking about him. I will absolutely work with Joe again in the future. If you want to wow your guests, I can’t recommend Joe enough. Below are some of the compliments my guests sent after the event: “The magician was off the charts”. –Terry “We loved the Magician (he was amazing)…” – JC “…and Joe the magician was fantastic!” – Sally “The magician is the freakin’ TRUTH!!! “ – Gregory “The magician was “magical” literally” – Alexis
When I say Professionalism I mean that not once have we ever received a complaint from patrons, nor from our working staff. Ryan brings the restaurant to life and has been an asset over the last several years. During that time my team and my guests have come to respect him as a talented magician and incredible guest advocate. His style is laid back and does not come across as pushy to the guests. He is very funny and our guests enjoy his visits to the table and some even come in to eat just to see him perform. I have on many occasions fielded compliments from my guests on Ryans behalf. He is a great guy that works for the house. He is open minded and receptive to new ideas, and more than once has stayed later than his shift because we were busy and he knew he could impact the guest experience. Ryan is friendly and professional and this comes across on every shift. I know that when Ryan is on the floor, my guests will have a great time. He is an asset to any organization.
