Comedian and Magician Gary Shelton has been making audiences laugh and wonder since the late 70s. His humor is southern flavored and family friendly; his magic brings out the wonder in audiences of any age. From National TV to small town venues he is at home with audiences of all sizes. He is requested at Upward programs and church youth groups all over the south.
We have seen Gary Shelton on many occasions, in several different venues (festivals, camps, libraries, birthday parties) and he never fails to please. He is fun, creative and keeps his acts changing so you never know what to expect. I would recommend him to anyone. It's refreshing to have an entertainer who genuinely cares for his audiences' needs. He is especially great with children and incorporates lessons into his magic, making his act both fun and educational.
I loved the mystery and fun that drew me into magic shows growing up and my son shares my fascination with magic so I chose Mr. Shelton to do a birthday party show for my son. He was fun and engaging and the children and adults enjoyed his family friendly humor. My son loved that he was the star of the show and his face lit up with delight when he brought the rabbit to life. Mr. Shelton was great with the kids and he was reliable and professional as well.
We used Mr. Shelton at a recent event at our Seniors Center. He performed with a passion for our audience we seldom see. The magic and comedic entertainment was only outdone by his connections with our clients. His show was titled “America’s Greatest Generation” and he mixed magic, music and history in his show.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this kind review. I look forward to our Easter gathering.
We hired Gary Shelton of Shelton Show for a birthday party for our son who is a special needs child. HE made the day so special and entertained everyone including the adults with his humor and magic. Parents came up to us afterwords and said it was the best birthday party they had ever attended.
Before, during and after Mr. Shelton was a caring professional.
We highly recommend him for anyones event.
