    Absolutely excellent choice for kids entertainment!! We had Mike for our son's birthday party at home. There were 18 kids total, ages ranged from 2 to 10 (mainly 6-8) and Mike entertained all of them and kept them engaged for the entire show. Our daughter wants him back for her birthday party now :-) Communications via email/text were always prompt and he showed up right on time. He was very "self-efficient"; He set-up and cleaned up so quickly in the midst of chaos with so many kids and adults roaming around, it was incredible. The most importantly kids loved it. They still talk about him even after 3 weeks :-) Thank you Mike!

    We had an absolutely wonderful time! Mike went through about 45-minutes of tricks -- that even our youngest guests enjoyed start to finish! He is spot on with demanding attention and participation from both kids and grown-ups -- it teaches us all better manners and respect. Several parents asked me for Mike's contact information during the party. I look forward to the next opportunity to celebrate with Mike!

    I attended a show in Plymouth MA. I have never seen so many kids so engaged in a performance, and not just the kids, the adults were loving it too! I highly recommend him for any event.

    Professional, FUNNY, and the best performer I have hired. Mike has been at our library many times to repeatedly delighted crowds - he is a pleasure to watch for both kids and adults. Hopefully he will continue to return :)

    Mike is one of the best magicians I've ever seen. He's original, very funny, and his material is perfectly suited to the age of the audience. But I've seen adults literally crying with laughter when he's entertaining at a child's birthday party or company event. Mike is one of the most memorable performers you can hire. Just call him. You won't be disappointed.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check references! You want to hear from real customers who have had the entertainer at their event. Also, check credentials, a lot of performers make self-inflated claims about themselves -- see what others are saying about them!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
The difference between part-time and full-time performers. Full-time performers are more experienced, more reliable, and invest more time, money and education into their work, and that shows in the quality of their work. Plus, they actually show up for their shows!
