Introduction: I specialize in the entertainment of children using comedy magic. I believe for children up to 8, the magic(mystery) is not as important as the ride to the end of the trick. I get the kids, giggling, laughing, screaming and interacting with the show. I love it when the children are laughing and giggling but nothing is like it when you just make them smile!

Balloon Twisting

We had a wonderful experience when Rick came to our circus theme birthday party. He did ballon creations and I was amazed at how quickly he could make them and the kids loved the balloon animals and many other types. He was prompt and great with kids. I would recommend him as top notch 👍😊

Great show and absolutely amazing balloons twisting time afterwards. Rick was able to keep attention of 16 kids (mostly boys of age 7-8) including the bithday boy - who was fascinated by Rck's magic tricks. Additionally, wanted to thank Rick for giving us an extra-time, so we could serve pizza between the show and the balloons time. Thank for the great time!!!

I am so happy that I chose him for my daughter's birthday party. Rick Reed was on time, he was awesome with the kids and adults too. I would say he is the whole package if you want somebody to entertain not only the little ones but also the adults. The show was outstanding I liked the way he set up his time to do the show, he never acted like he was in a hurry or something like that. What's more he is really good at twisting balloons I was surprise at the different animals and even characters he could make out of balloons. I am definitely satisfied with his show and I would refer him to my friends and family. Thank you so much Rick for your time. We had a blast with you! Violeta Byrd.

We hired Rick to entertain a group of 20-25 kids around ages 5-9. He arrived on time and was very professional and organized. His show was very entertaining and the kids were attentive and clapping and having fun the whole time. Many parents were commenting on how well he performed and asking where we found him. I was worried that some of the older kids would try to be smart and give away his secrets, but he was experienced around a young group and handled the kids very well. After the show, Rick spent an hour making impressive balloon animals. The kids had a blast with this and went back several times for more balloons. We were very happy we had him at the party and I would 100% recommend Rick for a kids magic show.

Balloon Twisting

Rick made balloon art for our guests for three hours straight at a customer appreciation event. His creations were fantastic and every child wanted to get a balloon animal or figure from him. We would absolutely hire him again.
