" Few magicians I’ve seen are as funny and as deceptive as you are! . . .We would recommend your performances to anyone looking for an entertaining addition to their event. "

Dennis Vander Houwen, Diverse Entertainment Resource

" James’ magic helped to engage a conversation with the attendees, having them ask more questions about our offerings. We collected more cards with warm leads than ever before! We were able to learn more about the prospective clients and what their needs were…People spent more time at our booth than any of the others. "

Victoria Rock, Victoria Transcription Services

" James is an excellent magician. His style is fresh and his ability to relate quickly and easily to any audience is impeccable. Not only is James very funny, but his showmanship is accessible while being very professional. I would highly recommend James for any audience who wishes to be “wowed” and delighted. "

Dianna Smith, Director, Business Services at Volunteer Match

" You were a wonderful addition to the party on Saturday night. Your magic is absolutely top notch. I have been producing events for over 20 years and I thought I had seen everything yet you blew me away. As I walked through the party I heard the buzz of guests… “did you see the magician? you’ve got to see this guy, he is incredible…” It is always nerve wracking to hire someone new – you exceeded expectations and I look forward to hiring you for future events.
