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!

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

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.

If you want a magician who is great with the children and enjoyable with the adults and you're lucky he doesn't have any other engagements, you and your children are in for a fun time.

Jim Combs was the magician for my daughter's 9th birthday party! :) We had kids from age 2 to 13 and many adults also. He had something for everyone. :-) Despite some of the adults being loud and chattering in the next room over, he still kept the attention of the kiddies and the adults in the immediate room. :) His act had some hilarious comedy in it too!!! :-) Even us adults laughed. :-) Jim arrived on time and started on time. :-) I would FOR SURE hire him again and a few of the adults said they were going to as well for their next child's birthday. :-) Thanks Magician Jim Combs!!!

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!!

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).

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

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)

Great magician with tons of cool tricks for the children and adults. The professionalism was great! He was on time, his assistant was friendly and there was even a bonus fireworks show offered!! My neighbors and friends can not wait to book the famous Johnny Carson!!

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.
