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!

Mark was absolutely great! Professional, funny and a true magician. He kept the attention of 12 four-year olds for 40 minutes...which was magical and a task unto itself. I highly recommend Mark for any event or gathering you're doing - as he delivers a great show. 5 stars all around!!!

Mr. Firu is an awesome magician. He could able to keep around r 40 children and those many adults glued to his magic show. He is also very polite and even extended the show time by few more minutes to make every child gets twisted balloons. Thank you pocket circus for awesome show.

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.

Had Brian perform for our little brother's 7th birthday party a couple of weeks ago. He was FANTASTIC! We had about 25 kids, ages 5-8, along with their parents, and Brian did a WONDERFUL job! (about 45 people in total) BEFORE THE SHOW: Prior to hiring Brian, I had done some research, since it was our first time working with a magician, and we could not be happier! He was incredibly patient answering all of my questions days leading up to the party. He was very open to any suggestions and worries that I had. The birthday boy has been obsessed with magic for the last year and a half. I explained to Brian that he often attended magic shows, would watch youtube videos of other magicians and perform for the family. So, naturally I was a little worried. After speaking to Brian, he made some great suggestions for the show (without revealing anything) asked me for my input and really made me feel at ease about the entire thing. SHOWTIME: He arrived promptly on time, was great with the kids, extremely witty with the adults, and by the end of the show, ALL of the kids and parents were in awe of the magic that he performed at the party. Could not have asked for a better magician! Very happy with Brian's performance, professionalism and kindness. Thank you so much Brian!! *HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Paul Mateer did a fantastic job entertaining 30+ children at the age group of 7 years old at my daughters recent 7th birthday party. He arrived at the party site with more than adequate time to set up and prepare for his presentation. He kept the kids attention the entire time and allowed them to interact with him. The kids loved his magic tricks. I would recommend Paul to anyone who is seeking a magician for their kids birthday party.
