We had George for one of my friends birthday party on Nov 19th, 2017. I gifted the magic show to my friends son who turned 10 years. The show was a hit . I have seen George doing magic show at one of my friends place In Allentown, PA about 2 months back and I was very thrilled and excited the way he kept kids engaged through out the show. The bubble maker show is awesome. I have never seen anyone do this. The best thing about George is he is very patience with the kids and also unlike other magicians, he doesn't do the magic show himself but pulls every kid in his show to do and show the magic which keep kids occupied and not bored. Also he did balloons for kids and initially it was only 1 balloon per kid. My sisters kid initially had a sword but when he saw a hat with balloon he wanted that and started crying. George already packed and was ready to leave but when we asked him, he unpacked everything and made him the hat balloon which made the kid happy. I don't think others will do this and will definitely be either frustrated or will give hard time or charge more money as I have had experiences with previous magicians before. I would definitely bring him as magician to other parties when I host them . I will also highly recommend him to my other friends. Thank you George

George's show was a lot of fun. There are a lot of magicians out there that just aren't engaging and they lose the interest of the kids. George kept the kids' interest through the whole show and made them all feel like a part of it. He made sure to make the birthday girls feel special and he even did an extra show outside with a giant bubble maker. He was pleasant, on time and a lot of fun. Can't ask for more than that. We definitely recommend George!

George the Magician perfectly met the expectation for entertaining my son's class for his birthday party. All the kids enjoyed it, he made them all participate to one or more tricks. They had lots of fun!

Justin -- was a super star at SilversideChurch's Christmas party -- and really created the Magic of Christmas with the many smiles and interactive approach he has with all children. Santa has nothing on this magician with a twinkle in his eye and a wave of his magic wand! Would hire him again if Disney doesn't snatch him up -- Miss Dot

Justin and Nicole kept the kids happy and fully engaged. Even when the set was completed a child of a late guest asked for a balloon. Instead of just saying no and dismissing the child, Justin offered to do a magic trick truly appeasing the child and making him feel special. Thank you both.

We hired Reasonably Priced Magician via Thumbtack for a Harry Potter party for my son and niece. Right away, we switched over to using my personal email account, and exchanged several emails in the weeks leading up to the party. All my questions were answered in a timely and thorough manner. I was impressed at the magician's ability to hold the attention of a large group of rowdy first graders. The show was engaging and fun for everyone, and our magician had both children and adults laughing. Everyone agreed that we were given a show with just the right combination of magic and humor. Overall, we very satisfied with the price, service, communication, and punctuality of Reasonably Priced Magician. Keith has a nice way about him. He's very good with children, as he is subtle and not over the top flashy or in their face. Some entertainers are just too much and turn off kids who are more shy or overstimulated easily. Keith really read the crowd and within 5 minutes of our 50 minute show, he knew his audience and catered to exactly what the kids wanted, while also throwing in understated "British humor" style jokes for the parents. I would recommend their services and will use them in the future for my daughter's birthday parties when she's a bit older.

I am SO THANKFUL that we hired Keith Frye of Reasonable Priced Magician for our 8 year's old's Harry Potter themed birthday party. His tricks captivated all 25 of the kids, ranging in age from 3 to 11. He truly was the hit of party, remaining in character the whole time as a student of wizarding school. I am recommending him to everyone! AMAZING show with an even more amazing price! THANK YOU!!!

We had a great experience with Keith as the magician for my son's 4th birthday party! Both kids and adults really enjoyed his show. Everything went perfectly, he was very professional, and responded quickly to any inquiries or requests I had. I got a lot of compliments from all the parents, and we would certainly hire him again in the future.

I hired Kyle for my daughter's first birthdays for 35 kids ages 1-12. He was punctual, professional, and entertaining. He made balloons for the children and performed a magic show and some gigantic bubbles. The kids were raving about how much they enjoyed the magic show. Kyle - Thanks for helping make our party a great success! Would definitely recommend and hire again :)

Bill Diamond was great!! I hired him for my kids' birthday party which included approximately 35 children, ages 2-13, boys and girls. He was very interactive with the kids and held their attention the entire time. I really don't know what I would've done without him! The magic show was very entertaining for all guests, young and old. The balloon animals were fantastic, not you're average sword or hat. As a special surprise for the kids, he was also able to provide a bag cotton candy (my color choice) to each of the kids, which served as a nice alternative to goody bags. The children couldn't stop talking about him and trying to figure out his magic long after he left. Bill Diamond was professional, polite, punctual, fascinating to watch, and his price couldn't be beat. I would certainly recommend this wonderful magician and entertainer and hope to have him back again for another function in the future. Thanks for making my party a success!!

Magician contacted us immediately. He then confirmed the date and time and showed up at the house 1/2 hour prior to confirmed time to set up. The show was age appropriate and the children were all able to participate - He was professional, friendly and I would recommend him to anyone looking for something to add to that special day. Our birthday girl was 6 with children ranging in age from 3 - 10. All enjoyed the Show.

We were very pleased with our choice to hire Bill. He was responsive, friendly, and punctual. He put on a wonderful show that both children and adults enjoyed and then did some great close up magic and balloon animals. It really made our party so much more lively. I got multiple compliments from adult guests on our choice of magician and the kids were all big fans. I would highly recommend him.

Joe Galante is a one-of-a-kind performer! He is highly enthusiastic, energetic and connects well to an audience. Joe performed at my son's 6th birthday party for approximately twenty young children. He was engaging and kept their attention for the entire duration of the performance. Joe involved the kids in the magic tricks and had them all laughing constantly. Joe is truly a fabulous performer and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a mature, credible, talented and enthusiastic magician!

Joe was incredible! He had a group of kids ages 2 to 12 and the adults hanging on his every word and completely immersed in the moment. He was truly the best magician (and balloon artist) I have seen at a birthday party in years. I give him my highest recommendation (and from someone who plans events for a living, that doesn't come easy).

I had a party for about 20 kids who are all in first grade. Joe immediately got the kids engaged and entertained the entire time. He was skilled at handling the children who were very excited, and he even had the adults laughing and participating. He's a top notch magician.

Kelly and Kyle arrived 45 minutes prior to the show time as promised to set up and started the show right on time. Kyle was very engaging with the kids and kept their attention pretty well throughout the show. I was hoping to see more magic tricks. But the kids and other adults told me they enjoyed the show, so I was quite pleased with the overall response. Thank you!

I am a magician that can fool you and entertain you with a big pinch of comedy sprinkled on top of that. I can perform under almost any circumstances but usually I like to be close enough to the audience so that I don't have to use a microphone to talk but if a show requires it than I can accommodate as much as possible to fit your needs.
