Bob was very flexible with the time as we had to start the show late, but he was fine with it, so we really appreciated that courtesy. Was quick and responsive to all emails and communications beforehand, and showed up early to set up. He did a great job of helping kids with varying levels of abilities participate in the show. His pricing was affordable compared to some magicians out there, allowing us the opportunity to bring this show to the kids. Thanks Bob!

We hired Bob for our three girls 9 year Birthday party and he was fabulous with all 15 kids! The birthday girls all had lots of time onstage with the magician and every single audience member thought he did a great show! I would definitely recommend him!

Bob arrived early to set up and stayed later to make balloons for the kids. My daughter was part of most of the show and really liked it. My daughter was turning 7 and was a good age for this magician

Malik is amazing! He was easy to communicate with, very friendly, and very professional. Not only is he a talented magician but he’s also hilarious! We hired him for our son’s 11th birthday party and he involved all of the children with his tricks and had everyone laughing, even the adults. Especially the adults! He customized his show for my son, who is mature for his age, so the kids never felt like they were being played down to which was so cool. I love that he took the time to learn who he was going to be working for. He’s a true talent and I’m so, so happy that I found him! Hire this man!!

Malik was a terrific, warm, engaging magician. just right for our batch of 7-8 year olds. he held them rapt for about 45 minutes. card tricks, disappearing balls, rope tricks and witty back and forth with the kids that made the adults laugh. he also made balloon animals for all the kids at the end which we did not ask for but was an added bonus.

Malik was amazing! His professional magician skills amazed all my guests - the close up magic was 'magical'! He encouraged, and ensured participation by everyone (10 guests present) ...everyone had the best time. He used comedy to keep everyone laughing - an enjoyable time was had by all. I highly recommend Malik!

Eric performed at our community center's Halloween Party this afternoon. We had a mix of kids (ages 1 yr to 12 yrs old) and adults. Eric was very engaging and his tricks held everyone's attention. He involved several kids in the show and even tailored a few tricks for the Halloween theme. The trick with the balls shaped liked pumpkins was hilarious and the kids were laughing so hard. The trick with napkin mouse was great too! Thanks so much for a wonderful show at our party! Would definitely recommend Eric to anyone looking for a magician!

Eric was hired to be a magician at our father's 80th birthday party. He arrived early and was promptly ready for the event at the time scheduled, he performed table to table magic for the first hour and did a magic show for the second hour as per my request. Eric was very entertaining and all the guests enjoyed the treat of him being there. We were very pleased and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a magician. Thanks Eric for making our papa's party memorable!

We hired Matt for an in home party for my husband's 80th birthday. We contracted for an hour and boy did he fill that hour with jaw dropping illusions...just as good as any on TV. He's a delight to work with and called to let us know he was stuck in traffic and when he would arrive. Matt has an engaging, open style of working with an audience. He really draws you in. The comedic aspects were an excellent complement to his skills as a magician. On a scale of one to ten, Matt is a twelve!

Mr. O'Malley performed at the combined celebration of our daughter's 5th and son's 3rd birthday party. We had children attending the party ranging in age from 2-8 yrs old. He arrived early to set up and was ready to go when I gave him the go ahead. We had over 20 children at the party, and he held the attention of all of them!! He kept them entertained with his magic show for about 45 minutes had them laughing out loud! He also made it a point to make the birthday boy and girl feel special. After the show, he took whatever time was needed to make all the children balloon animals. His skills with the balloons was competent, and he made an effort to give each child a unique creation. Would highly recommend!!

Peter was a big hit at my Daughters birthday party. He kept all the kids entertained from ages 2-9 with his magic tricks and balloon making. He went way beyond our expectations and captivated all the children for over an hour, with focusing some special attention on the birthday girl. You really can't go wrong hiring him.

Peter was great! He was so much fun and the kids loved his magic show. We loved that he called up most of he kids to participate in his show. Peter was very professional, on time and flexible. The highlight was Fluffy the bunny. Kids loved petting Fluffy and Peter allowed them to spend as much time as they wanted with him. Peter and Fluffy made our family event very special.

I spent a full week with Larry O'Leary a couple years ago at a Media Training Workshop in Maine and watched him perform his magic and antics throughout the week. Larry is a consummate professional who works hard at his craft. The joy and wonder from the kids up to the adults was priceless. Quirky at times in an endearing way, but someone who deeply cares for the art of magic and it's power to always bring a smile to those who need it.

I've seen Larry perform quite a few times for birthday parties and each time I was completely captivated by his performance. Everyone at the party couldn't take his eyes off of him, even the adults! We were all spellbound. I always love watching Larry perform magic shows; he has a great stage presence and very entertaining tricks.

We hired Joe for my husband’s 60th birthday party and we are so glad we did! First of all, he was very good at communicating with me before the party and making sure that we were all set. It was so nice not to worry. When he arrived, he was so easy to work with. He entertained everyone (adults and kids) and left several people scratching their heads wondering how he did his magic. His humor and banter were very entertaining—even converting some non-believers!!! Our guests loved him. We would hire him back in a minute! Thanks Joe! —Linda B.

Joe is an excellent magician who engaged our audiences at 2 separate shows. His first was a stage performance and his second had him walking around to members tables entertaining them with his magic. We love having him as entertainment for our members and look forward to his next performance in the fall.

Bob Filene delivered a delightful performance of his "Magic for Smart People" show at our senior center on July 29 and those who attended are still smiling and wondering "how did he do that?"! Bob is very easy to work with -- responsive, clear about his setup requirements and well prepared. He showed up early as promised with his equipment and props. The audience of more than 60 participants was engaged from the first minute to the very last. The laughter and applause overflowed into our lobby throughout the show. I would heartily recommend Bob.

Bob is an amazing magician and very friendly performer! He was on time and professional. His illusions were exciting and varied from rope tricks to exciting mentalist tricks. Not only is he a talented magician, he is also a comedian. His jokes had the crowd in stitches. I hope to hire him for another birthday party, perhaps even my 29th birthday.

We had Bob do a show at our son's 4th birthday party. I have never seen a group of 2-5 year olds so engrossed and mesmerized. I don't think they stooped laughing for the entire time. Just as importantly the adults had a great time as well. I would highly recommend Bob the Magic Guy.

I hosted a 35th birthday for myself and wanted to spice things up a bit from the usual drinks and conversation. I thought to myself, what would be more fun than magic! I started looking online and found a few sites that book magicians, put out a quote and immediately got a very strong response. It can be overwhelming the choices, but Matias was the clear favorite and I was happy he ended up winning the bid. Matias is extremely professional, but not stuffy. Cool, fun magic show that kept my guests mesmerized the whole time. I am especially a fan of coin tricks and his were amazing! Card tricks equally impressive. I highly recommend Matias for any party. Your guests will be just as excited as mine were and it'll definitely be a night to remember.

I combine my two sons birthday parties each year. This year, they turned 4 and 7. I wasn't sure what to do to for the party decided a magician would be a great idea! After researching for a short while, I had come across Derek Raposo. Boy, am I glad I did! Derek was not only very easy to worth with, kind, fun and entertaining, he was also professional and really made my boys birthday party a success. The way he interacted with the kids was perfect - he also had them participate in the show whenever possible! (Which of course they all loved) The show was definitely age appropriate for all range of kids in attendance, including us big kids (aka the adults!). :) Also, my final tipping point was that his website blew me away (being a Marketing professional - first impressions via the internet mean everything). Check out his website if you haven't yet...and you'll see what I mean! http://www.bostonmagicentertainment.com/ Derek - thank you again for all that you did to make my boys happy on their special day! You truly are an entertainer and I am still wondering how those bunnies, that I swear were black and white, turned red and green!! ;) One happy (and stumped) momma, Nikki

Derek did a great job of including every one of our guests in his show at our party. Our two daughters (ages 3 and 6) wanted to have their birthday parties together, so our family and friends truly ranged all ages. Each adult and child was engaged and felt involved in his act from start to finish. Derek was professional, fun, and entertaining! We would recommend him to anyone interested in having a great time while experiencing his mind-boggling magic!

Brian Christie performed at my son's 5th birthday party. He was punctual and accommodating. His show was very entertaining for the adults and children. He held the children's attention for the entire show. The best part of the show was the balloon animals, the kids absolutely loved them! I guess I would suggest to leave out the card trick (parents hate germs). Overall really good!

Chris was a joy to work with! He came in and did a show for our vacation camp kids here at the YMCA over December school break, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their experience. Not only was he easy to work with and flexible when booking the event, but he was professional and pleasant at all times both in communications via email and phone and in person. The kids laughed the entire show, and were in shock and awe of the magic tricks performed. We loved how many tricks he required volunteers from, the kids love to help out! He had a great respectful way of keeping the kids sitting and quiet so they could focus on the show, his techniques were very developmentally appropriate from an educators stand point, which is not always the case with performers we have brought in. I highly recommend Chris and will be asking him back again for future events for our camps, and preschool program! Thank You!!!

I ran a home childcare business, and Tom performed for my children and their parents on a couple of occasions. He was friendly, cooperative, prompt, and his audience loved him. Tom was great with the children. They were very engaged in his performance, and the fact that he included some of the children in his act made for extra-happy kids!! The magic tricks were "magic". Working with Tom was an all-around positive and enjoyable experience.

About

The Stupendous Mr. Magichead is a show of 50 rollicking minutes of high-energy and costume-character comedy magic with a major emphasis on audience participation, aimed squarely at children ages 3 through 10 and their families. Highlights of this quickly paced act include a starring role for the guest of honor, lots of ludicrous predicaments, and loads of surprising magic, which will mystify even the most sophisticated grown-ups, including the actual appearance of a live rabbit in an empty hat! The performance is followed by 5-10 minutes of bunny petting/photo opportunities.

The same year the New England Patriots hire a Team Magician whose phrase is “Impossible is Just a Word”, they end up achieving the greatest comeback of all time. Coincidence or magic? By the age of 23, John published two books, was on America’s Got Talent, and consulted a national Toyota commercial. John currently travels and presents keynotes on creativity & intrinsic motivation for leadership conferences. In addition for his stage and close up magic, you may recognize John’s name from the news where he captured national headlines when Tom Brady talked about him during his press conference. Most well known for being the Team Magician for the New England Patriots and the Opening Act for the Malcolm Mitchell Tour, many people "credit" John as one of the reasons for their legendary victory during Super Bowl 51. John's newest projects include working as a Producer on two television shows and an Associate Producer for an upcoming movie.
