Hilarious and Engaging!

We used Dave for our baby's first birthday party. There were lots of children, ranging from ages 2-12. Every single one of them loved the magic show. Dave is extremely good with the children and knows how to really entertain them. All the kids were laughing and all the adults were laughing as well. Dave did the 45 minute show for us, and had the entire audience engaged the whole time (not easy for young ones, ya know).

Dave was also very kind and professional. I was impressed by his professionalism. He corresponded quickly via email and phone calls. He called prior to the event to confirm the date and location. He arrived on time and set up quickly. Also, I was appreciative that the deposit was not a ridiculous amount as some other magicians require.

I have to say that I was also touched by Dave's kindness and honesty. He just seems like a genuinely nice person.

Thanks Amazing Dave! You really rocked at our party! :)

So Amazing

Cannot recommend The Amazing Dave highly enough! I booked him for my daughter's 8th birthday party at our house, he performed a brilliant show to 35 kids & as many adults, it was so lovely to see a room full of 5-8 year olds totally engaged & laughing so much. My daughter is really shy, but he even managed to get her involved in a couple of magic tricks, the kids just loved him & the parents too. You know an entertainer is good when children are still talking about him & re-telling his jokes in the school playground the next day. Thank you Dave, you made our party!

He's just as good as his name!

We had him perform for our daughters' 2nd and 5th birthday party and he was a hit with both the 30 kids (ages 3-10) in the audience as well as the parents. Lots of parents came to tell me what an awesome job he did after the performance. He is great and kept the kids entertained for an hour and a half. They loved him so much, I had to wait until the last balloon was twisted before we could sing happy birthday.

Amazing Dave is Amazing

We used Amazing Dave as the entertainment for my son's 3 yo birthday party. Most of the attendees were between 2-4 years old. So I was a little apprehensive about how engaged this group would be by a magic show. I wanted something to keep the kids busy without hiring the equivalent of a Hollywood Blvd. roaming superhero. Dave showed up on time and did balloon art for the kids as families were arriving the first hour. Afterwards, he then did his magic show. The kids all participated in the various acts. Every child was engaged and laughing in hysterics throughout the show. The parents at the party all commented on how great the show was. I would highly recommend Amazing Dave as the entertainment for your party!

Well deserved to use word AMAZING!!

Dave has a gift of entertaining audience without extra toys or devices. That speaks of a natural talent. We had children who are 5 or 6 years old. Probably most of you know it's not an easy task to keep their attention fully on the subject , have them follow guidance. Without exceptions, all of them willingly followed every step Dave asked them to do.
Moreover there was a lady at the party who I've known for more than 25 years. She hardly ever smiles, yet Dave made her laugh.
Dave has a gift we were blessed to invite him, thank you for 200%commitment to your job.

Amazing Dave was AMAZING!!

Amazing Dave did such a great job entertaining the kids. Ages ranged from 2-10 and all of the kids were totally engaged in the show. Dave did an AMAZING job keeping the kids attention even with the noisy adults in the background. We will definitely use him again!

One of the best shows I have seen!

The Amazing Dave recently performed at my daughter's 6th birthday party and he was absolutely wonderful! My daughter and her entire class were laughing the entire time and many of the parents complimented me on the party. I have seen many children's magicians before but Dave is by far the best I have seen! The Levitation trick at the end of the show was GREAT!

Best Family Entertainer Ever!!!

This is an unsolicited review of The Amazing Dave.
I've hired Dave for several parties over the years, and my advice to you is HIRE HIM NOW for your family's event. (Except for the first Sunday morning in February, where we have dibs on him every year!)

I have hired Dave for my son's 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th birthday parties. Somehow Dave takes the perfect show and makes it better every year!

I have to say that I have NEVER seen either of my kids laugh as hard as Dave makes them laugh. I am including their reactions to all of the Pixar and Disney Movies they have seen, all of their favorite cartoons, and even their funny uncle (sorry Jeff!)

Dave is not only profoundly gifted, but he is SO easy to work with, ALWAYS early, and seems like an all around great guy.

He has kids (and adults) up on stage helping throughout the entire show. I'll let you experience the surprises for yourself. (OK one spoiler - he floats a kid in the air!!!)

HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Amazing Dave was AMAZING!

I had the pleasure of hiring The Amazing Dave for my son's 5th birthday party! My son is not one for sitting still but Dave's show had him glued to his seat the entire time. I couldn't believe how much him and his classmates were laughing! The adults really enjoyed the show as well! Everyone is still talking about how great the party was!

Overview

When a client is interested in hiring me I like to speak to them on the phone to get information from them about their party so I can recommend the very best type of entertainment for their specific event. For example, the type of show I would recommend for a giant theater is not the same type of show I would recommend for a small backyard birthday party. I am always happy to answer any and all questions a prospective client has at any time with absolutely no pressure to buy. And if I am unavailable or unable to provide the very best show for your specific event I will recommend someone who can. I have lots of great magic friends. When you are ready to book, we cando it all over the phone in just a few minutes. You will then receive a confirmation e-mail with all the information you will need. I always call a few days before the event to confirm and to go over any last minute details. On the day of the party I arrive 15 to 30 minutes prior to showtime to set up my show. Then it's time to sit back relax and enjoy the show with your guests!

Additional Booking Notes

I bring everything needed for the performance including the sound system!
