    Greg the Great was perfect for our event! It was my daughters 8th birthday party and she loves magic. Greg had her help with many tricks which she loved. There was 10 girls for the party and Greg the Great kept them all entertained. I would recommend him to others if they are looking for a magician!

    A Wonderful Magician & Show
    Mystifying Magic by Greg the Great was certainly a great hit for my Son’s 4th Birthday party. The kids and adults both loved the show and enjoyed it. I'm glad to have captured some of my son's reactions on pictures and videos, because they were priceless and Greg kept him engaged throughout the show. His acts kept even the younger kids engaged, and he had the older kids howling with laughter and excitement. I would recommend Mystifying Magic by Greg the Great to everyone. Greg the Great was very punctual, professional, great with the kids, and an amazing performer! Hope to see him again next year we well. Thanks so much Greg for your performances.

    Our Magical Evening
    Greg, was our magician for my famliy Christmas and Thanksgiving gathering. He kept everybody entertained by his many acts and kept everybody laughing throughout his performance. In some acts he had a few of us participate so that we could feel a part of the magic. Greg not only performed magic, but his skill as a comedian was exemplified through his performance. He was outstanding and professional in all that he did. I highly recommend Greg to anybody who maybe be considering his service. Sincerely, Denny Anderson

    Great experience.
    Greg came and did a Halloween, mixed age, magic show and it was loved by all. There was a great balance of humor, magic and showmanship. There was sawing, floating and animals.

    Great Magic
    I could not be happier with Greg from Mystifying Magic! He thrilled all ages with his magic for our festival! Can't wait to have him back.

    Greg was professional, came early to set up, and our expectations were 100% met. Our party was for our b/g twins turning 6 at an outdoor park, we were under a pavilion roof, and it rained throughout his show. We were so happy we hired him or it would have been a disaster! He involved the birthday twins throughout the whole show and all of the other kids really got into it as well. I didn't think he would be able to keep such a large and rowdy group entertained for an hour but he did it! I had many parents ask how we found him afterwards and complimented the show as well. Highly recommend!

    Greg the Great did a FABULOUS job at our son's 5th birthday party. We were very impressed at how well he kept all of the children completely focused, very entertained and laughing throughout the full 45 minute show. I couldn't have been happier and would definitely recommend him especially for children's parties. We had an age range at the party of 2 to 10 year olds and they all loved it. My son whose birthday it was the star of the show and got lots of special attention - which he loved. Wonderful show and would definitely hire again!

    We had Greg as a magician for an hour for my son's 6th bday party and we had a blast. He was funny and entertaining, both for the kids and for the adults. The kids loved the magic, the live dove and rabbit, and the raccoon (my son is still convinced that that was live as well). The levitating act was a bit hit with the kids as well, my son is still telling everyone he meets about it. He gave all the kids present copies of his Magic magazine and he gave the bday boy a special Magic book. On top of all of this, Greg was punctual and very professional. I was very happy with the choice I made and I recommend Greg without any reservations.
