Drew did a fantastic job at our house party. He is a young, personable top notch professional magician and sleight of hand expert. This was a group of about 50 people mixed young and older. Everyone was amazed and not one negative comment. The applause was loud and genuine. He has my strongest recommendation! Martin Ignasiak

I hired a Magician for our holiday party this last season. He was very fun. He kept the kids interactive, almost like they were the ones performing the magic and he s only there to guide them. It is an interesting way of doing magic, and one that is probably quite difficult I would imagine. One of my favorite things was that he as wearing a shirt with a question on it under a tuxedo coat, and all of the parents, myself included, were trying to figure out the answer. At the end of his show, he took off his coat and turned around, and the answer we all came up with was printed on the back of his shirt! How cool is that?!?!

I had a big event to plan with not much notice, and finding entertainment wasn't easy. Awesome Family Entertainment was able to provide me a magician who was able to accommodate both my budget and my time frame. The magician was great. We had a hundred kids who were mesmerized and had a great time. Not every aspect of our event went smoothly, but luckily our entertainment did. I highly recommend our magician, Nate, and this company. No complaints at all.

Nate was awesome!! He came to our home for my son's 10th birthday party! He was very receptive to my e-mails and questions right up to the day of the show. The forecast said rain so Nate purchased a 10x20 tent and allowed us to use it for a very reasonable rental fee!! He was so kind and patient to all the kids and went above and beyond during the balloon tying part of the party (that we added to the show). Don't hesitate to hire Nate for any event you have. He is truly a professional and a great magician!!! I will encourage everyone I know to hire him!! The Wike family Christa, Ron, Riley and Connor

Bug-a-Boo was terrific! He entertained the kids for really the whole party. There were a few three and under kids who were a little freaked out by the clown, but the 4 and 5 and olders went bananas for his magic show. And the balloons were really awesome -- all kinds of complex balloon sculptures! I would recommend him to anyone -- a clown, a magician, and a great balloon artist, all in one very professional and cheerful person!

Matthew (Bug-a-boo) was amazing. We hired him for my 7 year old's birthday party and was impressed with his ability to entertain the kids as well as the adults. You will not be disappointed with his balloon animals.

Erik was amazing! He did exactly what we were hoping for - mingled and amazed our party guests! Even though his material is geared for more adults (which is one of the reasons I hired him), he did not disappoint our little ones who were here! In fact, I received 7 different messages today (the day after the party) about how fabulous our magician was last night! I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I had no idea what to expect when we booked Michael for our 10 year Olds birthday, and I must say; I was impressed. I honestly don't think impressed is a good enough word, mystified? Shocked? Awe struck? Whatever the proper term; Michael did not disappoint. The man is a true showman, and he knows his stuff. His act was appropriate for all ages, and I will more than likely call him the next time I have a special event.

Michael did close up magic at a special event for students. He wandered tables and engaged students in his magic. He was well received and students are still talking about how he did "that"! Very engaging entertainer.

The Great Randini was a fantastic performer and he kept all the kids entertained the entire time and their ages ranged from 2 - 13. He even stumped the adults there on how he did most of his tricks. I would definitely recommend him again.

Kids and adults were entertained throughout the show. He was funny and amazing, leaving the 20 plus 5-7year olds wondering how he did that. Thank you for making our party a success.

We hired Matthew David Stanley to perform at a Cub Scout event. He did an amazing job keeping the kids attention and providing a show that the kids and adults enjoyed. We've used many comedian/magician related acts in the past and this was the best feedback to date. Great job, would definitely use again!

Children of all ages share in the magic, experience and the wonder during this musical mix of fun and illusion! "It's totally age appropriate. There were lots of giggles from the kids and the adults. The illusions were great. Call Joe Lyons; his show will not disappoint you." -Erika, Alexa, Delaware, Ohio It's partly magic, partly music, partly comedy, and pure delight! "There's energy, positive upbeat personality and attitude. The materials used not only made the children laugh (crack up) but the adults as well. It's a great entertainment." -Juliet Blackenberry, Columbus, Ohio

I saw Michael once at a college. I'm not really into magic but he kept it funny and had the crowd from the minute he took the stage. Best magic shown I've seen by far.

The Great Dean-O is beyond phenomenal at what he does! My boys saw him at a private birthday party when they were 2 and 3 and were hooked! 2 years later, and they are still his biggest fans! This show will have kids rolling on the floor with laughter. They go see him anytime he is at a public event and my son has even got his own "Great Dean-O" magic kit for home. :) I am also the Director of a local Preschool/Childcare Center and we have him come out twice a year for our 2-5 year olds. He is the HIGHLIGHT of the year. The kids talk about him for weeks/months after and ask about him all the time. If you book him for a young child's party or a Preschool, you will NOT reret it. We have seen many Preschool magicians and nobody compares to The Great Dean-O!

You do not see that many magicians around anymore but yet there is almost no one within this world who is not curious and does not enjoy watching a good magic trick. I am one of the very few experienced magicians within the Columbus area. I have done numerous parties and events with little to no complaints of my performance, actions, tricks, and reliability.
