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.

I would highly recommend Magic Up Close to anyone who is looking for a magician. He did a wonderful job teaching my 5 yr. old son a magic trick to perform at his birthday party. Lawrence engaged the kids so well and the kids at the party had a great time. I would definitely hire him again in the future.

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

I LOVED this guy ! He is the most entertaining, mind blowing magician I have ever seen. His humor is suburb, his skill with magic simply blows people away. You won't believe the stuff Sly does ! ! ! I've seen him perform several times both for close up magic and on stage. He is a true entertainer, and his magic is FABULOUS ! He entertained for me and a party of friends 2 months ago and everyone is Still talking about him. This is one performer you won't be sorry you hired ! ! ! Sly .... if you read these reviews, please know that I am in awe of your magical talents. My friends were totally blown away with your performance. I can't say enough good things about you.

Sly the Magic Guy is incredible! His slight of hand is without question the best I've ever seen. Sly has that WOW factor and will astound even the doubtful. His close up magic is amazing, you never want it to end! Having Sly entertain your guests will turn your party into an event! It will be the talk of the town!

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.

Eli's magic show was excellent. Everyone at the party crowded into our living room & foyer to watch & thoroughly enjoyed his show, & his finale trick left everyone clapping & cheering. His tarot reading session which followed was the talk of the party for the remainder of the evening. He was friendly, personable, arrived on time, & kept everyone entertained throughout the afternoon & evening. We would definitely engage him again.

Dan really was AMAZING! First of all, what a nice guy!! Not only did the kids love him, and his magic tricks, but all the adults did too! From the day I hired Dan, he was quick with replies to my questions and extremely accommodating. Very professional and really great to work with. The magic show was great! He stayed afterwards to ensure that each child at my party had the most spectacular balloon animal! I can't say enough about how pleased I was! Thanks Dan!

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!

We hired Mike (Zig Zag) for my son 1st B'Day. Firstly he is very nice guy and very professional. All kids and including adults enjoyed Wacky Magic w/Puppet Skit and Live Bunny and Balloon Sculpting. Mike was exceptional when working with kids, he has lot of patience. In fact we hired him for two hours, but he stayed more than two hours... He is Awesome. I'll definitely hire him again n again. Thanks so much Mike for you entertainment.

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.

Drew is a breath of fresh air. He is very talented both as a magician and a musician but, beyond that, he is extremely funny. We hired him to do a "wizard" magic show for our son's Harry Potter birthday party and he was such a good sport and even changed some of his act to better suit the party. He certainly went above and beyond and, more importantly, the kids loved him.

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.

Wayne the Wizard's fun-filled magic shows are full of color, intriguing magical props, funny antics, and even a rabbit in a hat puppet that thinks it's alive. The show is presented in such a friendly and down-to-earth manner that is sure to leave a smile on the faces of both children and adults. The amazed looks on the faces of the children confirm the real sense of wonder that they experience. The combination of baffling magic with lots of humor makes these programs sure-fire winners. Birthday parties are a specialty for Wayne the Wizard, and his show is the perfect entertainment for that most special event. He invites the birthday child to be part of the show, and then they become the "stars" of the show. For over 20 years, Wayne the Wizard has been the children's favorite magician in the Washington, DC, Baltimore, and Annapolis areas. He has performed over 3,000 shows in the region at birthday parties, schools, daycare centers, summer camps, scouting events, and boys' and girls' clubs.

He has been featured numerous times on TV, in Washingtonian Magazine, The Washington Post, and numerous children's publications.
