Edward realy did a great job with his magic show and Baloon twisting! The kids were engaging and enjoying the entire show! My son and my daughter still talking about the show on the next day, and keep telling me they want to have the same magician àgain. The greatest news is my neighbor will hire him for her son birthday party! Thank you Edward !!

Not only was Lawrence Cummings a terrific, engaging, and even thrilling magician for a room of seven-year-olds, he also personally did tricks for a child who hurt himself outside and couldn't stop crying... until Mr. Cummings did some magic. I absolutely could not have been more pleased, my son as well. At the risk of cliche, Lawrence Cummings made Jacob's birthday magic.

As the neighborhood Realtor, I had an Easter Party for 100 kids in Springfield, VA. We had an egg hunt, 2 face painters, cake & prizes. The Magician was a huge hit! He did a great job, and thoroughly entertained the kids! We look forward to having him next year! Thanks for a job well-done! -- Sandy Andrews

Two days before our daughter's 10th Carnival Birthday Party, I reached out to Thumbtack for a Magician to entertain our guests. Mr. Michael Chamberlin promptly responded to the request within a couple of hours. His bio, resume and prior performances and experiences were very impressive. We hired Michael to perform a Magic Show for her party held on 10/13/13. The party consisted of about 30 children and 25 Adults. Michael presented an excellent Magic Show engaging both the children and adults. The birthday girl really enjoyed it as well as everyone present. The children and adults were still talking about the show long after Michael had left. He was very professional, cordial, and entertaining. I am so glad that he responded to my Thumbtack Magician Request. Michael truly is a great Magician and an excellent entertainer who was capable of capturing, engaging and drawing in his entire audience from start to finish. His Magic Show was amazingly top notch. It was energizing from beginning to end. We laughed a lot and were amazed by his magical talents. We all loved his show. Thanks Again! R/Hope Fenstermacher

Mr. Chamberlin was prompt, professional, and did an outstanding job. We had a birthday party for my son, who was turning 10, with all boys (ared 9 or 10) plus his younger siblings, ages 5 and 7. The kids loved it, and the adults loved it, too! I was worried the boys might think a magician was too babyish, but Mr. Chamberlin did an excellent job of customizing his humor and tricks for the age group. We were very impressed, and kids were even begging their parents to call him as they went home! Great job!

Michael was awesome all the way around. This was the first time I have ever hired a Magician and the experience couldn't have been better. He was great with our group of 7 and 8 year olds, as well as the adults that were in attendance. He made the show exciting, interesting and did it with a comical twist. He's great!

Captain Allstar was a fantastic magician and entertainer for my daughter's 5th birthday party! He's super friendly and fun. He was really great at engaging all the kids and keeping them active and involved. My friends and I joked that Captain Allstar would be a great elementary school teacher and we'd love to have our kids in his class! :-) The kids ranged in age from under 1 yr to 11yrs (the majority were 4-6yrs), and Captain Allstar was remarkable at keeping them all interested and entertained during his entire 45-minute show. They laughed at his antics and tricks and had a great time. He even had a "dance break" to get the kids up and moving at one point, which was great for the young kids who need to be busy and bouncing! I was also impressed by how well he remembered the kids' names as he incorporated them all into his show! He tried to give all of the kids a chance to participate or help in some way, which was awesome. My daughter the Birthday Girl was his special "assistant" the entire show and she loved it! He did a great job of making her feel special on her special day. We were super happy with his entire show!

I posted my request on Thumbtack on Monday morning, and within 30 minutes I received a response from Captain Allstar. He called me, and I selected him to perform for my son's Birthday Party (the next day). We had to adjust the timeframe, and he was more than accommodating. He was punctual and professional throughout the entire event. The performance was five stars because he was able to provide a great show entertaining 16 4-5 year-olds for over 45 minutes. Captain Allstar had all the kids smiling, laughing, and dancing. He was so impressive that he paused the show while the birthday boy took a potty break and still kept the audience's attention.Captain Allstar made my son's birthday a hit! I recommend Captain Allstar to anyone who is looking for a top notch clumsy superhero magician! Many Thanks, The Wells Family Alexandria, VA

Amazing. He was on time, professional and performed as requested for my private cocktail party. He was doing "mingling magic" with my guest and no one suspected that he was a professional was just the way I wanted. My friends loved him. I will ask him back for my next gathering in the summer.

Michael was amazing! We hired Michael for a party with 10 adults. He did individual taro readings and each person who had one seemed to agree that he was right on target with where they were in their life. He also did a 1/2 hour magic show which everyone agreed was astonishing. He was timely, professional and added a great dimension to our party.

What an exceptional job! A job well done! Leading up to my son's first birthdays party I had to entertainers cancel on me last minute. I was lucky to have someone refer me to Michael. I expkained to him the mishap that led me to him and he was very caring and considerate. He understood what had happened and made it possible to come to Baltimore to put on a show. He worked with me and was very professional throughout the entire experience. He was unique and funny. The children lived his performance and even some adults took part in the fun. He allowed the children to pet the rabbit and made each age group in attendance be able to take part! He made balloon art which the children loved and even read Giovanni's favorite book. I must say that when asked about children entertainment for parties I will definitely recommend "Zig Zag"! I will be booking him again!

Drew Owen performed a magic show for my child's birthday party. The kids (both boys and girls, aged six to ten) were totally amazed by the show - as were the parents! Seeing the kids' jaws drop as Professor Fizzwiffle somehow made cards appear on the other side of the room, coins and flowers vanish, and wacky ghosts dance wildly through the air made for great party entertainment. Mr. Owen was at ease with the kids and extremely professional to deal with, helping us to work out the best show for us, arriving early on the day, and demonstrating flexibility with the space and guests. Mr. Owen is an excellent magician and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

We hired Drew Owen for my son's (turning 6) birthday party. We had about 20 3-7 year olds and their parents. He was awesome!! Absolutely everybody: young and old truly enjoyed the entire performance. Not only he is a wonderful magician, who is fantastic with the kids, he is a professional musician. I am so glad that we also included some tricks which involved real musical instruments like a violin and a saxophone. Drew is a true professional, he is great with the kids, he is very diplomatic, and very creative! I am highly recommending him! Katya Lawhead.

Troop 688 Blue and Gold Loved Mr. Owen. He went from table to table and did little tricks that had the cubs simply amazed. He had their attention with ease. During the show during dinner he included cubs to be part of the magic. They felt like mini magicians. I would HIGHLY recommend Drew for any magic show for any age.

My wife and I saw comedy magician Anthony Ware perform at Club Bambou in Baltimore. He was on the line-up with several comedians. His show was terrific, and funny. The magic was incredible! He totally engaged the audience through-out his performance. At one point he had two people from the audience on stage with him. It was hilarious! It was truly a pleasure to see a artist who's able to do a clean performance that is simply outstanding.Kudos to Mr.Ware.It was money well spent.

After seeing Eric perform at our elementary school’s Fall Festival, I knew I wanted to hire him for our neighborhood block party! The block party was an outdoor event in our cul-de-sac, and fortunately we had perfect weather. Eric’s audience was made up of kids of all ages (plus adults) and he adeptly adjusted to and involved each age group in his magic show. His illusions were high quality and performed with the right amount of humor, ensuring everyone had a great time. Eric is a true professional and a wonderful entertainer. Booking him for the event was very easy (by email), plus good communication to answer questions that I had as the event date approached. I highly recommend Eric for providing amazing magical entertainment at your event too!

Planning your event? Let's chat. When many people think of magic shows, they are usually imagining a traditional theater-style show, but that's only one way to use magic at your event. Call me, and we'll talk about a few options to impress your guests. Below are two of the more popular choices. Strolling magic happens in the hands of your audience, making it the most interactive and social style of magic. As your guests mingle during a cocktail hour, I approach a group, introduce myself and then cause magic to happen. Bills multiply, change denomination even become foreign currency; their driver's licenses vanish and appear in impossible places; these are just a few of the amazing things your guests will experience. When I leave, their jaws will be on the floor (figuratively). I might also steal their watch (literally). Don't worry, they get their watches back. If you've never seen this kind of magic, please contact me, and I'll give you a list of upcoming public events you can attend. Stand-up magic is a more formal show. The magic at a stand-up show is bigger than strolling magic but still small enough to fit on any stage. Whether it's a banquet for your most important clients or a small dinner with friends, I take the gloves off and pack this show with hard-hitting comedy magic. I produce a dozen bottles, read your guests' minds and attempt the most difficult card trick on the planet. The combo, have an entire evening of entertainment by combining a stand-up show with strolling magic. This has the best of both worlds and lets your guests experience a variety of magical entertainment.
