    Roberto was amazing at my sons birthday party!!! I couldn't have asked for anything better. He kept not only the children entertained and involved but also the adults. He was extremely professional and on time as well as down to earth and easy to feel comfortable around. Everyone continued to talk about how great he was the next day and wanted to know where i found such a great magician at. This was the first time i chose a magician for my sons birthday party and I picked roberto due to his reviews and his reviews were no lie!!! He definitely lived up to the momentum and was well worth the money and time. : ) thank you so much Roberto may God bless you and your family and i am definitely grateful for making my son so happy on his birthday. I will always hire you again without thinking twice!!! This is a real magician with great talent, he is worth it!!!! Guaranteed! !!!

    Roberto performed as Roberto the Magician for my son's 8th birthday party. He was joined by a face painter and together they both did an excellent and outstanding job. As soon as he enter to the house, he started planning and organizing everything for the show. Also he manages the show in a way that all the audience could involved. The kids love him. He thrilled the show with his last act with Presto the bunny. I would said, Roberto is a excellent professional; he really cares about his business. You can expect to be dealing with anything but a courtesy and professional person. I don't think there is nothing he could do in order to improve his show. As I stated early he really knows how to handle his business. He goes the extra mile in order to make you feel satisfy about his show and also is a really helpful individual. I would said, you just can expect high standards services for his show. My husband and I love the way he handled everything. The audience love him, and the kids have lots of fun. Everybody (including kids) left saying this was an EPIC birthday!

    Roberto did an outstanding performance to a difficult crowd. He was able to keep the constant attention of 20 5-year olds, for the entire performance. He was lively, spirited and you can tell he loves his job. The magic was surprising and unpredictable and the adults enjoyed the show as much as the children did! I highly recommend Roberto for an awesome party experience!

    Will use again n again. People at the party were happy with him the kids enjoyed n loved him... Let me be honest, this man didn't work in the best ideal situation. It was like 100 degrees outside no shade loooors of kids and he worked thru it as humorous n entertaining as possible... I use another magician BUT Roberto just proved himself to me and others that he is great At what he does, entertained from the 3 years olds there to the 60+ year olds that attended... Worth every penny and then some .. He came with his own sound system bunny humor and magic. You really got to see him he's awwwwwesome...... I hope to keep him for future events now that I've found him n he was so great with my 7 year old... I'm a NYC teacher so I know what will entertain children or not- he's the magician you need to hire....

    My grandson's birthday was today, 3/31. Roberto gave a gala performance for his friends, all 27 boys and girls. The card games, and rope tricks kept them mesmerized. Each trick made them believe that he wouldn't get it right and they would win his bet. but of course it was not to be. The appearance of a live bunny was the highlight. He allowed the children to individually pet her, and the parents were so impressed that he gave each child a sanitized wipe afterwards. Great for the bunny, and child too. I would recommend this five star magician to all. Thanks again Roberto.

Will definally hire him in the future. Samuel Rivera

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be particular.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
My profession has taken YEARS to Master. I have done over 800 shows to date and I feel like I am just getting started. Hard work and dedication is the key. For every trick/illusion you see there are countless hours behind it to master its intricacies. Being a magician has taken great effort and I love every moment I have taken to be good at it.
