Mark was amazing from the first time I talked to him on the phone about my son's 6th birthday party! He was genuinely interested in knowing what my son would like at his party. I felt as if I called him on short notice.. ( I think it was a month, but not sure..) and he was able to make his day stretch later to make our party. He was...wonderful would be an understatment!! I'm unsure if the kids or adults were more entertained!! He kept all of his interested and excited! Funny, yet so very knowledgeable! Mark truely cares about his animals, though he loves entertaining he will never put that ahead of his animal or audiences safety. And that is truely hard the find these days. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Response from Animal Magic:
Thanks Tara. I'm glad everyone had a memorable time. I had just as much fun as your guests did! Thanks again for the opportunity to both entertain and educate.
Not only did my children enjoy the show, but I did as well! Very professional and protective of both the children and the animals. I was very pleased with his knowledge of animals and teaching the children the difference between a pet and a wild animal.
Response from Animal Magic:
Thanks for the nice review Andrea. I love what I do and I don't consider it a job. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself and I hope to see you at another one of my performances.
Mark was amazing! My son LOVED every second of the animal/ reptile show. Mark was fun, energetic, education and funny!! The kids and adults had so much fun, and truly loved every minute. I still have friends saying how much fun they all had. I would highly recommend anyone reserving him for your parties. You won’t regret you!!
Marc was excellent! He did my son's 5th birthday party and it was AMAZING! My son can't stop talking about it. Keep up the great work!
Response from Animal Magic:
Thanks for the kind words Katrina...everybody at Jacob's party was amazing and I'm glad I could be a part of it!
Disappointed. Was hoping to see a lot of animals and several magic tricks. In an hour, I think we saw 5 animals (each only being out for a few seconds) and one magic act. The other 59 minutes was spent talking, more so to the adults than the children of which the show needed to be geared for, and not so much about the animals, but rather bragging about himself.
A lot of fun and great with the kids and adults have fun too
Mark had his show at the school where I work yesterday. What an awesome experience. He geared the information and language to the age of the students and they had a blast!
Best animal show ever. Best cared for animals I've seen.
I am a lifetime adopter of one of the animals that Mark came to the rescue of and saved. He is an incredible person and human being doing what he loves to do and making a difference. If it was not for him, my wonderful adopted boy more than likely would not be alive and happy today. Animal Magic is an incredible company and wonderful show. Go and see for yourself how awesome these folks are.
Extremely entertaining and educational, this was by far the best animal act we have ever seen! We will definitely be hiring Animal Magic again!
