The Man is Amazing and left my customers remembering us!

We hired Wayne for our latest trade show at the Bellagio in Vegas and he was spectacular. He entertained for three days on the floor and everyone was blown away. He entertained at the opening cocktail party and it was easy to figure out where he was by the screams and applause that followed him wherever he was. His ability to incorporate our sales and product ideas into his magic was a thing of beauty. He was professional, funny, amazing and tireless. He made my job as President really easy. We have since hired him again. Wayne spent 20 minutes with me learning key features and benefits and worked them into his act. Every customer remembered we were there above the 120 other vendors.

Review by Mike T.

Wayne did an amazing job at our Corporate event. Very professional, extremely funny, and came with an amazing arsenal of magic. Wayne maintained excellent communication with me, and there were no problems or surprises before or after the event (during the event it was nothing but surprises!!) I would love to have Wayne back again for our next Corporate event.

INCREDIBLE! WONDERFUL! PERFECT!

Wayne was the entertainment highlight at our Agapi & Hope Gala held on February 22, 2014 in Cary, NC. We had over 300 guests and every single comment I hear is someone just in total awe of just how unique, talented and amazing Wayne Anderson truly is! He made our first charitable event successful and memorable and no event we go to put on will be complete without him -- I hope he can be at every one because everyone adores him!! HE IS SIMPLY THE BEST!!!

Incredible magician!

Wayne did a post-holiday holiday party for a group of 90 kids and adults. He just appeared (as if by magic) and started interacting with guests. He was amazing and people are still talking about the event weeks later. He, on his own, decided to do a 20 minute "show" for the 25-30 kids who were rapt with attention. He was the hit of the party and will have a hard time replicating next year!

Amazing is an understatement!

Of all the strange events for which a magician could perform, I hired Wayne for a "party" in honor of my husband after his death. It was more than a celebration of life event since it was what he wanted and included all his favorite things which is where Wayne comes in. Without a doubt, he was the hit if the party, and I've had many phone calls and emails applauding his talents. Don't hesitate to contact him...he is very professional and engaging and well worth anything he charges.

Wayne Anderson walked the room during a welcome reception for our national sales meeting, performing at tables and standing groups. He was amazing and everyone was still talking about Wayne the next day during our meetings. His magic thrilled everyone and we could hear cheers throughout the night after Wayne wowed another table.

The Magic of Wayne!

Not only is Wayne's work magical, but his style and adaptability is magical as well. He has amazed us multiple times when he has come to Duke to share his gift of magic with patients and families on the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Unit. He always adapts to the needs of our audience with ease and provides an escape from the daily medical routines and stressors that come along with being in the hospital for an extended time. He can bring smiles to faces of all ages, toddlers to adults and has staff & families still trying to figure out his amazing tricks weeks after his show. We are very thankful to have discovered Wayne and highly recommend him for any special event.

You will spend the next day trying to figure it all out....

Wayne was a delight at our party. We had a ~20+ person in-home get together and he blew the crowd away, working in small groups. One guest, who knows a few tricks himself, said 'there's probably only a handful of people in the world that can do what he does'. We were all still talking the next day about how he did it, hypothesizing and coming up with outlandish ideas. Eventually, we settled on witchcraft. Wayne was absolutely the hit of the party and everyone remarked that it was such a nice idea. I would absolutely rec his talents and book him again for any sort of event where you want people to come together, meet, have fun, and be a little spooked! Thanks Wayne!

Wayne was simply wonderful! He worked the crowd at my recent high-brow fundraiser and got rave reviews from my guests. Not only was he personable and funny, but his close-up magic left people in awe. I even saw one of my guests ask for his autograph on one of his bent forks from a trick! We'll definitely be calling on Wayne to come back for our event next year.

I thought everything went extremely well last night. Everybody; the residents, wait staff and management thought you were funny and enjoyed your magic! There was never a dull moment. I think the residents really enjoyed the traveling magic from table to table, made it a more personal experience that you were doing a trick just for their table. We would love to have you back another time (maybe when we have a stage)! Definitely worth the money.

Wayne is quite simply... Amazing!

We have now had Wayne perform at two of our fund raising events... one with 130 people and one with over 200 people. At both events, people were mesmerized and astounded with his performances. Even being close up and watching his every move, everyone commented on how there was no way what they were seeing could happen. Yet, it did!

If you are looking for entertainment that would leave people talking and scratching their heads for many days to come, I heartily endorse and recommend the Amazing Magic of Wayne Anderson.

Wayne was hired by us to perform at our wedding ceremony in July of this year after we saw him perform at the Angus Barn one evening. Not only can he perform feats of magic in this "busy" environment, but he tailors his performance to adults one moment and children the next. All saw his performance as nothing short of amazing! He has that infectious attitude of fun, showmanship, and drive to amaze his audiences. We were well pleased with his efforts and highly recommend him to anyone with a special event to highlight the event or party.

He showed a great mix of comedy and magic that kept our entire club entertained, which has proven to be rather difficult to do.

I have seen many magicians in my time, to be quite honest my brother is a magician as well, but none of them compare to Wayne. Wayne has a great gift and he is an unbelievable entertainer! Our club thouroghly enjoyed his act!

Response from The Amazing Magic of Wayne Anderson:

I helped found the First Flight Rotary in Kill Devil Hills, so I'm a great fan of Rotary and the work they do. It was a fun group and we laughed as much as you can in 20 minutes. What an enjoyable lunch. Thank you guys.

What can I say? We were all so stunned at our Annual Pool Party that we are still talking about it. He was great with the kids and even put on a special little show for them. You could hear them gasp at times. He also walked around and performed little up close and personal shows for the adults. We'd hire him again in a heartbeat. Great at what he does and very funny. Thanks, Wayne!

Wayne's magic is absolutely incredible! Have no idea how he can do all that he can. His performance had us mesmerized. Would love to have him entertain my grandchildren or adults at a party anytime.

Wayne strolled the event presenting up-close magic to attendees and exhibitors. Each presentation ended with him passing out his cards with the invitation to come by our booth for a "special gift" which we, being in the promotional products business, had available. Every visitor to our booth who had seen Wayne's performance was amazed and delighted by his skill. We WILL hire him again.

Review by Mark S.

Wayne performed his magic at our Rotary Club meeting in April. He was dynamic and entertained us all. Moving a fork on a table without touching it was powerful along with his ability to correctly identify the audience member's card that had been sealed in his pocket. I would highly recommend Wayne and his magic for other Rotary clubs and professional organizations.

Wayne is such a talented magician, and a great performer as well. He had a challenging audience of 6-9 year olds, and kept them all amazed (and the adults were pretty well boggled too). Thanks for a fabulous event!

Wayne performed an excellent magic show for our 23 dinner party guests. His tricks were "amazing", he encouraged participation from the audience, and his banter with the guests was great fun. The show was affordably priced and Wayne was both pleasant and professional throughout the booking and delivery process. We all give him "5 stars"!

Review by Catherine C.

From the first time I met Wayne, he had me in stitches and I was blown away with his magic. I do not consider myself a naive or gullible person, but he sure pulled some wool over my eyes. . .I took him immediately to my family and we all cracked up watching him do his thing. Sometimes I giggle at just the memory of Wayne's slight of hand! He's the best. Hire him!

KA at Duke University hosted Wayne for a semiformal dinner and was
extremely pleased with the performance. Wayne was terrific and really
tailored his show to our audience. It was great entertainment and well
worth every penny. We would like to recommend Wayne for future
entertainment opportunities and will surely host Wayne again in the future!

Lela's English is not as good as her Spanish. This was a great birthday party for some kids and adults up in Franklinton at a park outside. The birthday boy loves Magic.
