Edward realy did a great job with his magic show and Baloon twisting! The kids were engaging and enjoying the entire show! My son and my daughter still talking about the show on the next day, and keep telling me they want to have the same magician àgain.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced but experienced and fun magician I highly recommended Lawrence. From the beginning he responded to my emails/questions prior to the event and was very accommodating to my time change and working with me on when to start and end the show. He arrived early and taught the birthday girl some tricks, and midway through the party did not mind inquisitive little girls asking him to show some magic tricks, during the main show itself here was a lot of audience participation and the kids loved the origami at the end of the show, he even took time to make new ones on everyone request with paper they found in his bag!. He spent well over his allocated time with the kids having fun with them, and the kids had a great time at the magic show especially the birthday girl. Thank you for making our 9th birthday party a success Lawrence. We will certainly be seeing more of him at our parties! NadiaR.

Lawrence the Magician was excellent. He was easy to communicate before the event, and did a fantastic show and strolling magic. We had 12 kids ages between 3 and 7 and he tailored the show to them. He even taught the birthday boy a magic trick to perform during the show. We highly recommend Lawrence!

Donna is Amazing!! Every parent at my sons party asked me where we found her and commented on how great she was with the kids. We had a magician cancel on us that morning and she literally saved our party. She did face painting and balloons and the kids and adults just loved her. I really can not say enough positive things.

Two days before our daughter's 10th Carnival Birthday Party, I reached out to Thumbtack for a Magician to entertain our guests. Mr. Michael Chamberlin promptly responded to the request within a couple of hours. His bio, resume and prior performances and experiences were very impressive. We hired Michael to perform a Magic Show for her party held on 10/13/13. The party consisted of about 30 children and 25 Adults. Michael presented an excellent Magic Show engaging both the children and adults. The birthday girl really enjoyed it as well as everyone present. The children and adults were still talking about the show long after Michael had left. He was very professional, cordial, and entertaining. I am so glad that he responded to my Thumbtack Magician Request. Michael truly is a great Magician and an excellent entertainer who was capable of capturing, engaging and drawing in his entire audience from start to finish. His Magic Show was amazingly top notch. It was energizing from beginning to end. We laughed a lot and were amazed by his magical talents. We all loved his show. Thanks Again! R/Hope Fenstermacher

Michael the Magician was absolutely amazing! His show was entertaining for the kids AND the adults at our party. He is a true professional--very talented, prompt, polite, and personable. He even lets the audience members take part in some of his illusions. Hire Michael Chamberlin for your next event and, I promise, you will be amazed! We certainly were!

Captain Allstar was a fantastic magician and entertainer for my daughter's 5th birthday party! He's super friendly and fun. He was really great at engaging all the kids and keeping them active and involved. My friends and I joked that Captain Allstar would be a great elementary school teacher and we'd love to have our kids in his class! :-) The kids ranged in age from under 1 yr to 11yrs (the majority were 4-6yrs), and Captain Allstar was remarkable at keeping them all interested and entertained during his entire 45-minute show. They laughed at his antics and tricks and had a great time. He even had a "dance break" to get the kids up and moving at one point, which was great for the young kids who need to be busy and bouncing! I was also impressed by how well he remembered the kids' names as he incorporated them all into his show! He tried to give all of the kids a chance to participate or help in some way, which was awesome. My daughter the Birthday Girl was his special "assistant" the entire show and she loved it! He did a great job of making her feel special on her special day. We were super happy with his entire show!

I posted my request on Thumbtack on Monday morning, and within 30 minutes I received a response from Captain Allstar. He called me, and I selected him to perform for my son's Birthday Party (the next day). We had to adjust the timeframe, and he was more than accommodating. He was punctual and professional throughout the entire event. The performance was five stars because he was able to provide a great show entertaining 16 4-5 year-olds for over 45 minutes. Captain Allstar had all the kids smiling, laughing, and dancing. He was so impressive that he paused the show while the birthday boy took a potty break and still kept the audience's attention.Captain Allstar made my son's birthday a hit! I recommend Captain Allstar to anyone who is looking for a top notch clumsy superhero magician! Many Thanks, The Wells Family Alexandria, VA

Sly .... if you read these reviews, please know that I am in awe of your magical talents. My friends were totally blown away with your performance. I can't say enough good things about you.

Thanks Sly! I called him last minute for my Wife's Birthday party. He responded right away, gave me all the info I needed and made it really easy to schedule. Sly showed up on time and was very personable. Not knowing how this should work I asked him to take charge and make it happen. He did. My guests loved the interaction and his magic impressed everyone. All evening I could hear the gasps, giggles and wows. I was really impressed how good his magic was. In fact they talked about it all evening. He is a master of his craft and I truly appreciate his professionalism and willingness to help me out last minute. Thanks so much!!

Amazing. He was on time, professional and performed as requested for my private cocktail party. He was doing "mingling magic" with my guest and no one suspected that he was a professional was just the way I wanted. My friends loved him. I will ask him back for my next gathering in the summer.

Eli's magic show was excellent. Everyone at the party crowded into our living room & foyer to watch & thoroughly enjoyed his show, & his finale trick left everyone clapping & cheering. His tarot reading session which followed was the talk of the party for the remainder of the evening. He was friendly, personable, arrived on time, & kept everyone entertained throughout the afternoon & evening. We would definitely engage him again.

Michael's magic was excellent. Morning after the small, private event, two guests emailed me with ideas as to how a particular trick worked. In other words, they did some puzzling after the event. I had to juggle Michael's start time a bit, and Michael was immediately accomodating. Good performance, and my guests were pleased.

What an exceptional job! A job well done! Leading up to my son's first birthdays party I had to entertainers cancel on me last minute. I was lucky to have someone refer me to Michael. I expkained to him the mishap that led me to him and he was very caring and considerate. He understood what had happened and made it possible to come to Baltimore to put on a show. He worked with me and was very professional throughout the entire experience. He was unique and funny. The children lived his performance and even some adults took part in the fun. He allowed the children to pet the rabbit and made each age group in attendance be able to take part! He made balloon art which the children loved and even read Giovanni's favorite book. I must say that when asked about children entertainment for parties I will definitely recommend "Zig Zag"! I will be booking him again!

Michael is a member of Kapitol Klowns Assn of Maryland, which is an organization comprised of entertainers for the Meca of D.C, Virginia and Maryland.

Drew Owen performed a magic show for my child's birthday party. The kids (both boys and girls, aged six to ten) were totally amazed by the show - as were the parents! Seeing the kids' jaws drop as Professor Fizzwiffle somehow made cards appear on the other side of the room, coins and flowers vanish, and wacky ghosts dance wildly through the air made for great party entertainment. Mr. Owen was at ease with the kids and extremely professional to deal with, helping us to work out the best show for us, arriving early on the day, and demonstrating flexibility with the space and guests. Mr. Owen is an excellent magician and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

We hired Drew Owen for my son's (turning 6) birthday party. We had about 20 3-7 year olds and their parents. He was awesome!! Absolutely everybody: young and old truly enjoyed the entire performance. Not only he is a wonderful magician, who is fantastic with the kids, he is a professional musician. I am so glad that we also included some tricks which involved real musical instruments like a violin and a saxophone. Drew is a true professional, he is great with the kids, he is very diplomatic, and very creative! I am highly recommending him! Katya Lawhead.

Troop 688 Blue and Gold Loved Mr. Owen. He went from table to table and did little tricks that had the cubs simply amazed. He had their attention with ease. During the show during dinner he included cubs to be part of the magic. They felt like mini magicians. I would HIGHLY recommend Drew for any magic show for any age.

Mike and Allie were awesome!  Their interactive magic show had the kids and adults laughing non-stop!  He told the kids his magic doesn’t work and the children “performed” the magic.  All of the children got to help.  They played music and also had the children dancing to silly songs.  Mike and Allie made my son’s birthday the best ever, and I highly recommend Wacky Wizard Magic!  It was stress-free and FUN!

Roberto put on an excellent show. The event was a Lions Club Charter Night dinner and he was to perform for 1/2 an hour. He came early to set everything up and stayed until the event was over to tear down so that he would not interrupt the proceedings. The audience thoroughly enjoyed his performance. He is not only a mind reader/magician, he is also a comedian and his production had the audience laughing throughout. I would highly recommend him and will certainly hire him again if the need arises.

We had Mike Rose perform as a magician at my son's 6th birthday party. He was great! A talented performer, Mike kept both kids and adults entertained with his tricks and humor. We had quite a crowd, with 18 kids. Mike effortlessly contained and directed their energy during his 45 minute show. Seeing the looks on their faces during Mike's performance showed how much fun the kids were having. Since the party, our son has set up a magician podium and pratices his own tricks. We highly recommend Mike Rose to come entertain your next party. Superb!

For over 20 years, "Mysterio" has been presenting exceedingly entertaining, highly amusing, and audience interactive magical performances for children of all ages; he's been performing regularly throughout the region for private parties, corporate functions, and special events.
