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

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!!

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

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.

Chris is truly Amazing .... From the minute he walked in the door he lit up the room. Broke the ice and made everyone feel comfortable. The Magic was by far anything i have ever witnessed we left thinking how the heck did he do that and then something bigger would come. Chris is blessed with a talent ... You reading this should be the next 1 to invite him to your event. You wont be disappointed. Kerin Pearson

I just have to say how amazing you were today at the party. Keeping 30 9-year old boys entertained is not a small task and none of them could keep their eyes off of you. They were all laughing hysterically and were mesmerized by your act. And I loved your creativity to get them under control while I had to finish up the dessert making. You made this party awesome and we'll have to look for more reasons to have you back. Great job today and thanks so very much again! Thanks Arlen!!! Nicole

Review JPZ There's many good things I could say about John, but it would be all the same. I also work in the entertainment business and he hit the spot sharp! HE IS GREAT! HE IS THE REAL DEAL! In my many years(15+) of being around fancy parties there's 2 Guys that impressed me. He is ONE! (the other guy even though is good, his lady manager is a hassle to deal with ) John has a great vibe and gives his 100%, which is commendable and I appreciated it more than anything. Very sharp mind and the improv jokes had us laughing with tears. I didn't want to leave a review for fear of making him too busy thus decreasing my chances of booking him again in the future, but it wouldn't be fair to him. Pay him whatever he's asking, you'll get more than what you paid for! He's priceless. Thanks and good Luck, John (aka RP)

About

I have a great respect for my fellow magicians. To say hire me over them is not my style. This is my style... Your satisfaction is 100% GUARANTEED!! If I'm not amazing, I do not want your payment. To date, I have yet to have to honor this guarantee.

About

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.
