I don't know how you did it. Mom, dads and kids are all telling me it was the best birthday party they've ever been to. My son can't stop talking about the drawing that moves. You made his day and that made mine. Just wanted to say thanks.

Joe, I wanted to thank you for making our picnic a huge success. Just like you said, the adults wanted your balloon art as much as the kids did. Your magic was fantactic too. People are still talking about it 2 days later. What do I have to do to book you for next year? You made my employees and their kids happy.

Joey D entertained at my daughter's Bat Mitzvah celebration. The
guests, about 80, were half thirteen year olds and half adults. With
his magic,balloon twisting, and joking, Joey kept this diverse group
into the party. I received many complements about him. I recommend
Joey highly for any gathering where a talented, family-friendly
entertainer is wanted.

Hi Joe - Just another quick "Thank You." My students truly enjoyed your show! Starting off each show with a magic trick was a great way to really grab my student's attention! They loved the balloon art and were truly engaged in your presentation from beginning to end. The crowd, both kids and teachers alike, were entertained for each moment. As the person who brought you to Lowville, I was thrilled with your professionalism and clean act! I was proud to say that you were my idea. Thanks again for a great day! - Sonya

What can I say? You were fantastic! High marks across the board, even from the Russian judge. I’d be very honored to write a referral at any time. Your participation made our parents’ day (and the kids’ too :^)

Amazing Magic by Joey D around the Web:
Here's a sampling of some of the routines performed by Joey D:
Signed Bill In Orange- A borrowed $100 bill is 'lost' by Joey D, only to reappear in an orange which has been in the audience the entire time. This will leave everybody wondering "HOW DID HE DO IT?"
Egg Bag- The assisting spectator becomes the star of the show ad proves to even the most cynical that anything is possible.
Grandpa's Coins- A touching and magical story about my grandfather's last gift and advice to me. Coins vanish and appear, but the story that goes with the magic makes this routine one of the most charming you'll see.
