Son's Eighth Birthday Party

Weird Eric is great! We hired him for our son's eighth birthday party (15 kids, ages 4-8), and he kept them mesmerized for the entire hour! What we really liked about him (in addition to his performance) was that he spent 30 minutes on the phone with us to tailor a performance based on our input and his suggestions, arrived early and did close-up magic with the kids, and involved the kids in every aspect of his amazing (and funny!) performance. Nice guy and great entertainer. Don't hesitate to book Weird Eric!

Community Stage-Pittsburgh International Children's Festival

Weird Eric was featured on our Community Stage at the Pittsburgh International Children's Festival! Families enjoyed his magical performance and those passing by stopped to experience Weird Eric first-hand! From pre-schooler to grandparent, Eric kept the audiences laughing and cheering at the surprises he revealed during his Community Stage performance.

Very entertaining, would highly recommend!

We hired Eric for our six year old's birthday party. He was very professional - showed up early to set up and kept my son and his friends entertained for almost two hours (not an easy feat). He taught them some easy magic tricks that they could do themselves which I thought was nice. Eric did a great job and I would definitely hire him again! Very nice to work with...Giao.

WONDERFUL Weird Eric!

Wow! Weird Eric was amazing at our double-birthday party, celebrating a 1st and 12th birthday!! The magic show and balloon-making was a huge hit! He truly saved our party, as it was held outside at a park and we had a torrential downpour! The kids didn't even notice the rain...they were consumed with Weird Eric's magic and balloon creativity! What a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend his services:)

Awesome Child's Birthday Party

Weird Eric had 35 kids focused and attentive for an hour. The adults and kids loved Eric. Many are still talking about the show the morning after. Thank you Eric for making our son's Birthday Party memorable. We'll definately send some referrals your way. Thanks again!

I work at a K-5 after school program of about 80 kids. NOt only was Weird Eric able to keep them all entertained, but they liked him so much they want him to come back at the end of the school year! The tricks were great, he was very funny, and was also very easy to work with.

Review by Melissa L.

Weird Eric provided smiles, laughter, entertainment, magic, and amazing balloon creations at our 4th Annual Race for Grace in North Huntingdon. He was great to work with, always responded promptly during the planning process, and was extremely professional. The line for Weird Eric never let up throughout the entire event (~4 hours) and every child left with a beautiful balloon creation and a huge smile on their face! He interacted with all of the kids while making their balloons and would frequently perform an awesome magic trick for them.

If you are looking for an extremely personable and professional magician/balloon artist, I would highly suggest Weird Eric for you children's event. I would definitely use Weird Eric in the future for any event!!!

Review by Corry Q. H.

Weird Eric performed for us at our township parks and recreation halloween party. This was the first time we held a party of this nature and Weird Eric was the icing on the cake. He was professional, hysterical and his magic was super! Our audience ranged in age from 2 to adults and he entertained everyone. We will definately be inviting him back this year!
