    Rick rocks! He went above and beyond to deliver a top notch show for my son's birthday. He entertained a tough crowd of 8 year olds and their parents. He was very flexible and showed professionalism throughout planning and delivering his services. He even took more time to teach my son a couple of tricks. The entire show was well planned and adapted to my audience, the bunny out of the hat was a hit! Smiles all around. Thank you Rick!

    Children loved Rick's Magic Show and I could hear Gigles all the way through 1 hour. Rick's bunny stole the show. Thanks Rick.

    Rick Anderson in Willsoville
    Rick was professional in all his time with us. Staying in touch on his travel time and getting right to business when he arrived We had a water well drilling seminar with trade show and dinner afterwards. Rick performed standup close contact magic at trade show. Easily mixing with people and doing some amazing tricks. After dinner he performed on stage and easily won over a very skeptical bunch of people that became totally involved with his act. Not many performer have ever been able to get this groups attention in the past and Rick was professional enough to read the crowd and bring them all to his performance. Normally the group of 150+ guests are not paying attention to a performer and talking over them. By the end of Rick's act the room was quite and very attentive to what he might do next. It's been a week since he performed for us and I'm still getting good comments about his act Highly recommend him for any group. He seemed to be able to work with any age group and be able to handle easily some people that may have partied a little more than usual. Good job Rick

    Exceeded our expectations
    Rick performed for my son's 11th Birthday Party. He entertained 13 ten and 11year old kids and 5 adults for over an hour. He was funny, engaging and inspiring. The show was very perfessionally delivered. I would recommend Rick for any type of function you are having, adult to kid. Our family will definitely hire him again in the future.

    Great show!
    We had around fifteen 8-10 year olds and they had fun! I asked the kids what was the best part of the birthday party and they all said MAGIC! Thanks Rick for the great show!

    Amazing Magician, unforgettable birthday party
    We had Rick perform at Kayden's 7th Birthday party - 13 kids, 7 adults, (3 generations) and it was amazing. Rick was very responsive from the minute we reached out all the way through the party. Rick sent us all the information we needed and gave us some great options. He is priced fair and well worth it, he could charge more and I would still feel I got a great deal. Rick captured and kept everyone's attention. My guests commented how much fun they had, and how fantastic it was to see kids and adults have such fun at the same time. Kayden had a wonderful birthday, and my only wish is that I had taken more photos, I didn't want to miss any of the magic : ) BTW, the bunny rabbit trick is a must.

    The Best Out There
    Rick came to our event and was unbelievable. We thought this was going to be mostly for kids but it turned out to entertain and baffle the adults as much or more. Rick was a little more expensive than other quotes I got but I'd heard good things so I figured "Why not." Well worth the little extra. We got way more than expected.

    It says describe the job what went well and what could have been better well Rick Anderson far exceeded all our expectations and there is not one thing I could think of that he could have done better! We hired him for our sons 4th birthday party there were 17 kids ranging from 3-11yrs and 20 adults. Rick Anderson was able to keep ALL of us entertained the entire time that is impressive! When the party was over our son was beaming saying he has magic and is a hero all our guests said that was the best party they have been to!

    I just wanted to add to the positive comments regardin Rick. I was simply looking for ideas for my 14 yr old daughter's bday party (very last minute) & I went ahead & filled out ideas I had on thumbtack. Rick replied in such a professional manner that I wanted to write him a positive review. He provided awesome information & had the intuition or experience to recognize the challenges of the audience ages of my daughters 14 yr old friends. This just shows that he caters to the audience ages & has the experience behind it. He's absolutely right. These kiddos are not elementary nor adult. An age that can be probably hard to entertain or connect with for sure, but heffective seemed very confident. Anyway, his correspondence was very professional, & perceptive to the brief info that i had shared. Very sad to say, I cannot afford his expertise (this time...single mom, cake, food, & treats are probably about all I can do) but I will absolutely recommended him to friends/family & I will be keeping his information for a near future time that i could be better prepared for $ wise. A professional & perceptive reply to a potential customer (me & my daughter) is all it took for us to know that whatever he charges, is probably well worth it. Don't always find folks with a nice mix of talent, excellent communications, & high sense of service.

    We hosted a birthday party for mostly 4 and 5 year olds, who are typically very easily distracted. It's amazing that Rick was able to keep the entire audience fully engaged throughout the whole performance. My daughter, who is normally quite shy with strangers, ended up helping Rick in multiple sessions. She had great fun and that's all we needed for her birthday!

    We had Rick's magical show for my sons 6th birthday and I am sure he and his friends will have beautiful memories forever. And the bunny is so beautiful, white with red eye... all the kids were in awe of it! Will definitely recommend.

    Rick was wonderful with our son Sam, incorporating him into the show even though Sam is shy and recommending magic books and providing magic supplies for our budding magician! Sam loved it!

    Hi Rick! We can't tell you how much we enjoyed your show last night for our birthday celebration in Federal Way! We all had the best time, so many giggles & laughs! I appreciated your ability to mix it up and entertain all the age groups we had. You went above and beyond my expectations and took the extra time to entertain long after your fabulous finish with the live rabbit! We just absolutely loved every bit of it, thank you so much for making our celebration so special! Many of the guests wanted to know more about your services and are thinking of other events to share you with others :-) Kim

    Obviously a professional Rick Anderson was helpful from the beginning. He returned calls in a timely manner, provided useful suggestions for marketing his show and our event, stayed in contact right up to the day of the event and gave me a sense that all would go well! As an event organizer I really appreciate the ease of working with Rick. The day of the event he was early, engaging and easy to work with. He started and finished on time. His show was absolutely amazing and so entertaining, He involved the audience throughout the show, And when the live bunny appeared everyone fell in love with it. Everyone had a really great time. We plan to have him back in the future.....and the magic rabbit, too!

    Rick's performance was high energy, hilarious, and mind blowing. Trick after trick had us in stitches and our jaw on the floor. Never a dull moment.

    All I can say is WOW. I seen other magicians at parties but nothing like this. He cost a little more than the other bids but was more than worth it. This is not a gut doing simple sill tricks for kids. The kids were laughing and squealing for almost an hour. What surprised me most was how much the adults were blown away by the magic. And how much they laughed too. I called a reference mom about him and her comments were so good I didn't believe he could really be that good. He was actually better than she told me. At the end Rick made a real live rabbit appear right next to my daughter and this was a huge hit and made my daughter's day.
