I could not be more pleased with the magician show performed by Marshall Magoon at my son's recen't bday party for his classmates at our local Round Table. I was worried that the kids would be "bored" just sitting around eating pizza and considering there were boys and girls in attendance. Well, Marshall saved the day and made the party a real hit with all the kids, including the parents! He really engaged the kids and they were riveted during the entire show. It was so great. It made me so happy to see the children laughing and interacting with the "magician". I would highly recommend Marshall and plan on using him in the future! Thanks so much and considering I had no clue how to contact a magician on short notice, I am glad that I stumbled upon the thumbtack site to order local services as Marshall knew exactly the location where we were having our party and lives nearby so that was also helpful. Again, awesome performance and my son had a blast!!

Marshall Magoon was excellent magician, to start from beginning, he was very flexible on timing, was well prepared for the show on/ahead of time, once show started he kept all the kids engaged and involved about 45 minutes, also kids were participated in the activities(Rings, Green hyena, hiding egg, cards, etc..)

Marshall showed up on time and started exactly at the time we agreed on. He was very professional. All of the kids and adults were captivated by his performance. My son's 5th birthday party was a hit thanks to this wonderful magician!!!

I am a board member of a Phoenix-area charity foundation. We wanted to do something different this year at our annual signature fund-raising event and decided on a magician for entertainment. That turned out to be the best decision!! We contracted Mark Stone to walk the crowd and perform magic tricks. In addition we also asked Mark to act as an "emcee" to make announcements (silent auction, drawings, etc). He was excellent at that as well !! I would highly recommend Mark and would definately use him again at any type of event.

Working with Mark was great! I had never used this site or hired a magician. But using thumbtack made the search easy. Mark's show was just right for my party. Every guest from the youngest (2 yr old Preston) to the oldest (93 yr. Sofia) were entertained. Thanks Mark :)

Kimberly was great at my son's party. We had a dinosaur theme, which at first I thought would be hard, but Kimberly showed up as a safari guide hunting dinosaurs and made the party so special. What I especially loved was that she did a little of everything! She is a storyteller, magician, balloon artist, and face painter. I would highly recommend her for a child's party.

KB Magic joined us for our daughter's first birthday party. We planned on having her stay for an hour, which was extended because the children enjoyed her work. Her face paintings & balloons were wonderful. Definitely would recommend to others!

WOW, WOW, WOW! The magic, the illusions, the crowd interaction & the over all "WOW" factor, ANDY AMYX has it all! From the start he was quick to answer, more than fair prices and professional. He made my daughter's graduation party a moment to remember, not just for her but all of our guests. Everyone from from small children, teens, adults to the wonderfully matured seniors, we had a large age group to please. He did so seamlessly and with ease, including everyone. Leaving us full of laughter and amazed. I can't recommend him enough. If your looking for a seasoned, well educated magician (illusionist) Andy is your guy. We felt privileged to have had the experience of seeing him and can't wait until we can think of another function to hire him at once again. We have already begun recommending him to friends, family & co-workers. Want a truly memorable experience, then hire Andy Amyx, you will NOT be disappointed! Thank you Andy! Suzanne

Andy performed at my husband's birthday party last night in front of 25 people. They were absolutely blown away! Andy was great to talk to and work with prior to the evening and the show. He was relaxed, well dressed, friendly and on time and brought a ton of props with him. I was 100% impressed and very happy with my lucky choice. My friends will use him and so will I....next time I next a professional magician! I LOVED ANDY AMYX!!!!!!

Andy was awesome. We hired him for a Cub Scout event. He responded to the quote request super quick. His pricing was competitive. His contract is common sense and he showed up on time and was ready to go on stage as agreed. His magic skills are excellent and he does a great job of getting the kids engaged and into the show.

We had Alan perform at our Annual Synagogue Fundraiser. He performed close-up magic for small groups and we then moved to the big room where he did some wonderful, comedic stage magic. He did a great presentation where used cue cards to create a funny magician out of one of our audience members. He was outstanding. He even went to great pains to customize his magic to our organization. A very nice touch.

Connecting with Alan for our kid's first birthday event turned out to be one of the best decision. He has lot of tricks up his sleeve and keeps the guest entertained non stop. He was very accommodative with some of the events running over time. He did a walk around magic tricks and center stage entertainment. Everyone totally loved him. He's also good hearted and a very nice person to interact with.

The artist we booked really made the whole party. He came dressed as a ninja, delighted the kids with ninja skills, magic, balloons and so on. He happily stayed an extra 30 minutes to finish balloons for every child. He was polite, talented and fun. What more could you want for a kids party.

Hank is a terrific magician. Many of our residents were amazing at his card tricks. The performance lasted a little more than an hour and I do believe another hour would have been just as pleasurable. I really like the way Hank combines a little about himself/children with his show. It's a nice touch! Hank also has excellent rapport with an audience and I/we would certainly like him to perform at one of our next activities!

Hank is great. An incredibly talented, enthusiastic sleight of hand magician, he provided a great street show for us in front of our booth. He customized his act to help us convey our value proposition to our customers. Tireless and brimming with confidence, exactly the kind of magician you want at your trade event. I wish I could give them 10 stars

Grant Gomez has performed at a few of my family events. Grant was entertaining and fun. He made people laugh, and more importantly, he amazed my guests. He is equally good at performing in front of a large group as he is working in a smaller setting. I have seen many magicians and am familiar with many magic tricks. Grant has unique magic tricks that completely amazed me. His slight of hand is excellent. Grant is professional and personable. I would highly recommend Grant for any event where you want unique entertainment from a quality performer.

I saw Grant perform at a small family event and was blown away by his skill set. I manage over 700 apartment homes in San Francisco and host events for the residents in my buildings throughout the year. I've hired Grant for 3 different events now and each time he's been punctual, professional, personable, and most of all highly entertaining! He keeps residents of all ages wide-eyed with his magic tricks! My self included! I would definitely recommend him for your next corporate or even family event!

The father-son duo put on a nice magic show at my daughter's birthday. The tricks were amazing and kept the audience involved. Many kids were let to be a part of a trick which made them feel more interested. The birthday girl was taught a special trick that she presented to her friends and earned all the "wows". Magic parties showed up on time and understood and met all our requirements. The only constructive feedback I might give is to request them to add more theatric and some music to their show. Also, for all those smart phone users, you will find a celebrity in these magicians as one of them helped shape up the most popular smart phone today.

We requested the services of Magic Parties at my son's birthday party. The magic which they presented was astonishing to everyone at the party, kids and parents alike. Their fun and easy style brings magic to life, while still making it accessible to kids who are sitting just several feet away from the magicians. My son had a wonderful time, and after the party, he asked us if he could take a magic class at camp the following summer. --Jonathan C.

They took their time and were really engaging. They even taught my son, 8 a magic at the end and left him the materials for him to keep. A priceless memory for my family.

Doug performed a magic show for my daughter's kindergarten....4 classes with a total of 120 children. It was on her 6th birthday and the children had a blast and the teachers were falling off their chairs with laughter. Doug interacted with my daughter and made her part of the show along with the other children as well. You can tell Doug does this because he loves magic and loves making children and people laugh. After the show parents commented for weeks about how their kids talked about the magician and how they were still trying to figure out how the tricks were done. Doug is a great magician for adults and children. I did attend his adult show and he was amazing as well as hilarious. My wife coordinates her companies X-Mas parties and we are planning to hire him to perform up close magic as well.
