Michael preformed for my daughter's 5th birthday and did an excellent show. It was enjoyed by the kids and adults. I highly recommend him if you're looking for fun interactive entertainment!

Michael performed at our camp for foster kids. It was a particularly tough week for a couple of our kids who were between foster homes and he called one of them up to help with a magic trick. She had been having a very negative attitude up until that point but after that started opening up and talking to everyone about her experience. She even imitated his act for our camp talent show later in the week. The kids loved his performance! Michael put some smiles on the faces of some kids who really needed to smile!

Haven't see the event yet, but his responses and willingness to do our event is exciting. He also has a very fun personality from talking to him on the phone.

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 was very experienced in dealing with a bunch of 10 year olds. He fit right in with the group of kids and adults alike. Other than his main show involving kids/adults, he also had a side sit down show with kids which was quite popular. Highly recommend for kids' birthday parties.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Every event is different. So that I can best serve my client's needs I really hope to talk with them for at least a few minutes to understand better what they are looking for and to accomplish and if I can be the best fit for them.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Listening, often the customer is just thrown into the position of pulling all the necessary parts together to make the event flow well. I have done this for many years and I like to help with suggestions if they are asking. It's all about making the event awesome!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Multiple TV appearances, Several decades of traveling the World performing for audiences ranging in size from a few close up to over 18,000 during NBA halftime shows.
