David was a very energetic and fun magician to work with! He was able to captivate the whole audience. He made it entertaining for both the young, the old and everyone in between. Overall, we had a great experience with David Lawrence magician act!
David was hired as a strolling magician for our company party. Easy to communicate with via email and phone. He was prompt and professional. The guests were all entertained and wowed by the performance. Would recommend David for your next party!
He is an awesome magician. Everybody loved the magic show at my son's birthday party. My 4 years old son keeps watching the video again and again. I would recommend him for a great entertainment for all ages.

Jeff presented 2 magic shows during our nursing facility's annual Country Fair. He was a big hit -- folks were still talking about him days later! He's a talented (and humorous) magician that kept the attention of our audience of all ages. Looking forward to his return!

Awful show - perfect rip off. The party was for my 3 yr old. This group could neither entertain kids or adults. I had high hopes so I did mention about the show in my invitation card. My guests were very disappointed ( and I looked helpless in front of them for having such a flop show)
1. The other staff that came with him was for face painting, One of my guest asked to draw a cat and she draw something which looked more like a rabbit.
2. I asked to make some simple stuff to make with balloons, she said she doesn't know how. Also she was very slow, spent half an hour in filling air in them. The simple stuffs that she made you can make better.
3. Despite my persistent requests to do something better to keep my guests entertained, he wasn't able to do anything. He showed some very predictable tricks with coins and cards only
4. They certainly lacked professionalism and willingness to do better
5. I told him straight away during the show that we are disappointed, he was saying that this party is not the kind in which he specializes. (Hello - I gave my requirements much before, you should have said NO)
6. He asked the money before the show which I gave him before the show. (Well, I think he wasn't confident so he wanted to make sure he has the money in hand, alas I didn't understand that. And now I will never trust people like him)
Well, if he can call him magician I think I can do that too. It so unfortunate that Thumbtack doesn't verify the claims of performers who can rip off customers with false claims. I lost time and money both. I DON'T recommend him for any show.
P.S. I wanted to make sure I write this review so that others are aware before hiring this group!
