He was great! On time and ready to go in minutes. Kept 20 5 & 6 year olds captivated for an hour! Even the very busy boys!! My son can't stop talking about the magician at his party and keeps doing magic tricks he "learned"!! I HIGHLY recommend the Great Boodini!

Silly Aunt Nora Magician was amazing. I was a little worried that it might not be age appropriate for my 8 year old daughter's birthday party but she was absolutely fantastic! The kids loved the music face painting and magic tricks. She made my birthday girl feel really special and I'm pretty sure the adults loved her more than the kids. I'm so happy I hired her and highly recommend her for anyone looking for great children's entertainment.

We contacted Steve only two weeks before our two year old sons birthday party. Although we were late in contacting Steve, he agreed to go out of his way and perform a second show on the date we had in mind. Steve was very easy to work with! Steve arrived early to the party and was all set up and ready to perform in less than 15 minutes. We had approximately 20 kids at the party ranging in age from 2 to 13, and Steve kept them all occupied and in awe of his magic skills. Steve even had the adults at the party intrigued and glued to his performance. We highly recommend Steve and his magic show to anyone searching for a magician. We received many compliments about Steves performance and plan on hiring Steve in the future. Thank you, Steve, for a party our kids will remember forever!

I wish I could add more stars to the 5 star rating above, and for as many stars I would add they will be less for the appreciation that I have for Steve and his work and his magic that he spreads around when he is performing. We hired Steve for the magic show and balloons package for my daughter's birthday party and I admit it was so much FUN. Steve is so humble and nice and he was on time and the way he engages his audience is mesmerizing. We had 20 kids and some adults of all ages but not for a moment during the show were we taking eyes off him. He had everyone engaged including the birthday girl and her friends and the adults too. He was right on time with all his equipment and everything started as planned and where did that hour go by we don't know. He was so patient while making balloons for all the kids at the end of the party and took time to tend to everyone's needs. If money is on your mind while looking for a magician - lemme tell you he a very inexpensive package. If entertainment is on your mind - lemme assure you he is full on FUN, Excitement, Entertaining. For all in all he is your guy for all questions...you will never go wrong if you puck him.....he is a billions bucks in FUN. Thank you Steve for everything from the bottom of our hearts...

I found Mr Bob after looking for magicians online. After speaking with him I had a good feeling. He seemed like a nice guy. He called to confirm plans a couple of times before the party and arrived very early to set up. He knew how to put the kids at ease instantly, my son who could have been stage shy was in fits of giggles and so were the other 3-5 yr olds. They loved him. He's still talking about him! It's not just the magic, it's a great performance for kids to laugh and be silly.

Tim was a huge success for my son's third birthday party! He should up right on time-- a little early, in fact -- and turned out basement into a really cool magicians set. He had about 20 kids from ages 1-12 to entertain, and everyone loved him! The show was very interactive, and he managed to keep everyones attention for a full 40 minutes, which is unheard of for kids this age!! Beyond that, Tim was a super friendly guy. I can't recommend him highly enough. Thank you!

Zack was asked to do our cub scout blue and gold banquet on a short notice and was very accommodating. Our meeting ran a bit late and he was very patient with the situation. He was very prompt to the engagement. He set up his own area and never batted an eye when asked to relote his set up for a skit that was preformed. He was very funny and included not only the scouts but also their siblings and adults were also involved. He is a very professional magician with an act for every situation. We were very pleased and will definitely recommend him to others in need of family friendly entertainment.

Paul Lee is the best magician I have ever seen in person. He's done magic tricks just a few inches away from me and I can't figure out how he does it. I am going to have him perform at my birthday party this year because I want all my friends to see him.

Brent arrived 15 minutes before show time in our home. He was our entertainment for my sons 8th birthday. The kids enjoyed his humor and were amazed by his tricks, and some adults were also in the audience really enjoying his sense of humor. We wanted a magician, and we got that and a great entertainer as well. Brent was very professional and had very good etiquette. His communication was good, and despite a change in plans due to weather, Brent was able to accommodate those changes. We were very happy with our choice with Brent Allen as the entertainer and our son has requested to have him back again some time. I highly recommend him and the added ballon sculptures at the end if the party. The kids really loved that.

We met Paul at our daughter's school fun fair where he made balloon animals for 3 straight hours! Paul made sure that each child left happy and wouldn't stop until the last child was served. We then hired Paul to perform at our daughter's sixth birthday party. He performed magic that was geared toward the children, but amazed the adults as well. The show lasted for almost an hour, and kept the children laughing and entertained the entire time. His price was fair, and he exceeded our expectations. We plan to use Paul again next year for my son's birthday!

Loved the show so much we had to go 2 years in a row. My 11 year old loved it. The second show was not the same as last year. It is a mix of magic, wittiness and hypnosis.

Dan is super talented and has a great sense of humor. The kids also loved being part of the show. I definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a magician.

About

My passion for magic goes back more than 40 years. It has been an avocation which has provided me with the golden reward of evoking honest expressions of awe and astonishment from my audiences. I take great pleasure in transporting audiences from the real world of a sometimes harsh reality into an astounding place of fantasy where anything is possible and everything is predictably unpredictable. My magical repertoire is best appreciated by an adult through a youthful audience. I perform "walk around" to entertain individuals and small groups, or "parlor magic" for entertaining everyone at once. My illusions are fun, entertaining and humorous, making use of coins, ropes, rings, money, magic boxes and of course, playing cards, with some mentalism thrown in for good measure. I enjoy customizing my performance to fit your specific occasion. There is audience participation throughout my act. No one is ever embarrassed or made fun of. Instead, the credit and applause is directed toward those who have become my “assistants”. I will travel up to 40 miles from Chicago to entertain you and your special guests.

I've been doing magic since I was 4 years old. I am currently 18 years and still going strong. I vary from card tricks to mind reading. One thing that stands out the most is my age. You won't find many magicians my age. I maybe 18 but my performance would make you believe otherwise.
