    Scott is simply amazing
    We hired Scott for a group birthday party of cousins of various ages and he was outstanding. He kept the entire audience captivated and was particularly funny. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

    Large crowd.
    Scott was great. He showed on time, very professional, self sufficient in set up (which was great since I had a house full of people). He started the show right on time. Kids and adults were laughing and all had a great time. Thurston was a hit. Over all great performer and great experience. Only small negative - I had a hard time hearing him over our crowd, which was large. Also not sure he was a hit with the teens.

    A fabulous addition to any party!
    Scott is a wonderful magician, talented and funny. We had more than 20 children of all ages attend our daughters' birthday party along with their parents. I don't know who enjoyed themselves more, the children or the parents. He arrived early, performed on time and kept everyone mesmerized. One of the highlights of his show was his trained parrot, Thurston, who all the children loved. He even made all the children balloon sculptures. Everyone asked me how I found him. Scott made the birthday party a memorable and enjoyable event for everyone and I highly recommend him (and Thurston!). Thank you, Scott!

    Great Party
    Great Scott was at my daughters 4th birthday party and he was excellent. All the children and adults loved his performance. He had the kids and adults laughing and included everyone in his show. Now my daughter makes me say "the magic word" for everything. Many of my guest were interested in hiring Scott for an event. Great time!

    Great Scott had the kids and adults entertained for a good time. Would recommend for any kids' party. His parrot was a bit stage-frighted and his balloon making variety could be a little better though.
    Replied to Addie K. - Aug 24, 2016

    Unbeknownst to Addie one of the kids tossed something at my parrot & he got a little skidish. Thurston took it well & I did not want to make a big deal about it

    Scott did a great job keeping everyone's attention, especially in the exhaustive heat as we held the party outside. He was very witty and comical during the show. I experienced him making even the most stubborn of the family laugh, which was a delight to see. And the best of all, he had my daughter, as well as, other children at the party participate in the party which made them feel special. We would definitely hire him again!

    Very professional. Great Scott showed up very early and was prepared for a great show. My guests were running a few mins late and he had no problem accommodating to that. Everyone said he made my child's bday party the best party they've ever been to. Will def have him again in the future. Highly recommend him.

    We recently hired Scott for a corporate event and he kept the crowd thoroughly entertained. Scott performed walk-around magic for us - by moving through the crowd and conjuring tricks in front of small groups of people. All evening there were gasps heard throughout the room (despite there being quite a discerning audience). Would thoroughly recommend him!

    Scott performed at my son's 3rd birthday party on 8/29/15 and had the entire crowd which included children and adults engaged and entertained during his entire show. He did really well and had everyone laughing and having a great time. I was asked by multiple attendees for his contact information for their own parties. Scott arrived early to set up and was very organized and professional. Thank you, Scott! A. Kurian

    We had Great Scott for our 50th wedding anniversary. He was charming, energetic and absolutely amazing! Having seen a lot of other magicians over the years, his act tops them all. We highly recommend him and have referred him to many of our friends. Oh, and his parrot Thurston brought down the house with his incredible vocabulary and card tricks! Amy & Joseph Lee

    We hired Great Scott for a 9 year old's birthday party. The show was great, really funny for both kids and adults. There was participation and he made sure that each one of the kids got to be a part of the show. Scott was professional and an all around nice guy. Although our performance was kid-friendly, he told us that he also does adult shows. I would recommend him without reservation.
