A Captivating Performer

By Robert C. on February 24, 2016

Georges-Robert has performed for two of my Halloween parties and both times the guests were in absolute amazement. His shows recall specters of a bygone era and added to the ambiance of both events. Everyone raved about his magic!

Unbelievable magic

By Adriana M. on February 23, 2016

Georges-Robert is simply the best illusionist-mentalist-magician I have ever encountered. I appreciate his intelligence, wit, humor and historical context he brings to his magic. I have seen his shows in close up settings and on the large scale (outdoor stage venue, family/ corporate setting). He really wows everyone in all environments and the personal conversations that follow the events with stunned guests show this! Giving him my highest recommendation.

I'm also blessed having Georgefor my private parties- entertainment is enormous, everybody is just hypnotized by his magic and having a marvelous unforgettable time.
George is unique person to talk to, amazing personality, absolutely professional, charming and highly intelligent.

Bravo George and thank you for all fun, joy and entertainment you deliver

Amazing Magician

By Chenine L. on February 22, 2016

I saw Georges-Robert the close up gallery at the Magic Castle and my husband and I LOVED him. You think you would be able to catch the magician at the close up gallery but Georges got us every time. On top of being an excellent magician, I love the air of mystery about how he carries himself. He is a true magician through and through. We cannot wait to see him again and have been raving about him to our in-laws.

Georges-Robert Amazes

By Lisa D. on August 16, 2015

It was my first time hiring talent for a party and I got my money's worth with Georges-Robert. He has an understated style that makes you think the magic isn't working or that the trick is hokey and then does the reveal so swiftly that you can't believe your eyes. We had 16 kids from 2-14 that were riveted for a half hour. He was on time (early!), pleasant, and talented. My daughter keeps turning over and over the bent fork from the magic trick and you can see the wonder in her eyes. Worth it!

Excellent and Very Professional

By Robert L. on December 24, 2014

Georges-Robert is a top-notch magician and illusionist. We hired him to do close-up parlor magic, strictly clean entertainment for an audience including kids, teens and adults. He kept everyone, including the teens, riveted, and did so in a fun, enjoyable way that was low-key and not the typical birthday party 'clown'. He arrived early, performed beyond the contract, and handled himself and his crowd brilliantly.

By Jane S. on December 17, 2014

Georges-Robert will boggle your mind! I've been lucky enough to see two of his performances so far at the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. I can't wait to go back again. His shows are filled with mind boggling illusions, mystery, enchantment with a slight touch of humor to keep you dazed and amazed! Guaranteed a good time.

Best. Office. Party. Ever.

By Bart B. on December 17, 2014

We hired Georges to perform at the Christmas party for the staff of my Medical Office. The party was at hour home, and Georges set up in the family room to perform for our group of 16. I will never forget the laughter, the dropped jaws and stunned looks on the faces of my employees. The impact of the show lasted well beyond the performance as we spent the rest of the evening in intense "How did he do that?" conversation. Georges engaged everyone in the performance, and it was the most interactive and enjoyable party in my 20 years of medical practice. I have spent much more over the years and gotten so much less. Everyone agreed it was our best party ever!

Amazing, professional, atmospheric

By Chris M. on December 17, 2014

Georges-Robert's show starts as soon as he walks into the room in his persona, attitude and appearance. But when he starts his magic you see he is more than this - he is truly great at his craft. Although we saw him on Halloween, he is clearly at ease with a variety of situations, tailoring his language, style and even the tricks themselves to the audience he is playing to in the moment. Highly recommend.

Absolutely supernatural!

By Sarah L. on November 2, 2013

I first had the pleasure of seeing Georges-Robert at my dear friends' wedding. The wedding was absolutely incredible, with not a single element out of place or unnecessary. This of course, included Georges' wonderful close-up strolling magic during the wedding cocktails and reception. Georges embodies his entire act- elegant, and utterly entracing. There is no "hoke", nor a sense of schtick, but rather, a very refined and special performance. Georges also carries himself as the perfect Victorian-era gentleman, both in dress as well as manner. Book him and add a wonderfully special element to your engagement- trust me!!

Whether on a stage or in a close up setting Georges-Robert is equally engaging. He blends a tinge of the supernatural with a personable tone and elegant presentation.

I have seen Georges perform several times now, both at The Magic Castle and other venues. Close up and parlor. He is absolutely fantastic. Personable, talented, witty. A master at close up, and metal bending. Yes, you will believe!!!!

High-Impact Mentalism and Magic!

By Daniel U. on December 21, 2012

Georges-Robert's act is quite extraordinary in every respect that could possibly matter --- it's smart, powerful, amazing...and contains just the right amount of creepy. I've been fortunate enough to see this act evolve over time, and it just keeps on getting better and better. A must-see!

Gasp Inducing Magic

By Alf L. on December 20, 2012

You can elicit applause from an audience. You can force people to courteously clap or laugh at a lame joke. But a gasp, is the real deal. I hired Georges Robert for the Haunted Midnights show at The Comedy Store in Hollywood and I could not recommend him more. Over a year later I saw him perform his act again, this time at The Magic Castle, and knowing full well what was to come I remained dazzled and mystified.
For your magic needs, Georges is the best.

Entertaining and Amazing

By Cadance H. on November 18, 2011

Georges-Robert was the perfect addition to our annual Award and Recognition party. Our guests range in age and background and he was able to "wow" all of them. He performed strolling and small group magic and was extremely professional and courteous to all of our guests. His demeanor was very calming which added to the allure of his illusions and he was able to demonstrate a great number of different magic tricks depending on the group. Many of our guests commented on how entertained and amazed they were by him and his illusions and I would definitely recommend him for another event.

Set List

Strolling & Close-up: Georges-Robert’s award-winning close-up magic astounds. He entertains with mysterious demonstrations of illusion, mind-reading and sleight-of-hand. His repertoire can entertain a young tyke to the most mature in taste, leaving many to gawk in amazement and ask, “How did he do that?”

Strolling and close-up magic is ideal for mixers, receptions, banquets and large private parties. Georges will mingle with your guests performing amongst small groups. If your guests are seated, he'll perform tableside before their meal is served. For large events, Georges brings a folding close-up table to set up where he is needed to entertain the passing guests. A good rule of thumb is one hour of strolling magic for every 50-60 guests. Georges’ close-up magic is a terrific icebreaker and creates an engaging atmosphere for all.

There is also Georges' formal close-up show for smaller gatherings for a dozen to 20 guests. In this setting, Georges sets up his close-up table in the front of the room and engages the guests to join him as he dazzles them with mental telepathy, mind–reading and his signature effect, metal-bending. This 20 to 30-minute interactive performance is personable and unforgettable. Your guests will be amazed.

Parlor Magic: Whether an intimate space for a dozen guests or a gathering of 100, Georges-Robert will command the attention of the room. This 30-minute mentalism show blends turn-of-the-century stories and effects with a dash of humor, mystery and a touch of the supernatural. Georges always dresses for the part in his elegant or vintage attire. It is suitable for a mixed audience from young to old and is sure to delight.

And yet, there is another version of this parlor show, something unique to Georges’ style and sought up to a year in advance – his Halloween Parlor show. Here, Georges’ will take you on an eerier trip down the haunted lane as he communicates with the other side all in the quest of the eternal question, “Do the spirits come back?” This paranormal magic parlor show is peppered with elements of spirits, mind-reading and mysterious effects from beyond. He has performed this featured event several years in a row at The Magic Castle, but select evenings for this show can be booked for those with a lively and hearty imagination. Georges does dress devilishly or in a vampire style at request.

Stage Act: Looking for something on a grander scale? Georges-Robert presents his Soires Fantastiques, a show to be experienced at a proper stage venue. This 40-minute performance comes with all the mystery and illusion you expect from an elegant conjurer. Joined by his lovely assistant, Georges will interact with the audience and deliver impossible predictions, engaging storytelling and classic levitation. This show will be the grand finale for your special celebration or corporate event.

Children's Shows: Georges has a natural rapport with children and knows how to make them laugh and feel special. He is especially attuned to the nuances of a shy child all the way to the intuitive, smart child and can adapt his language and effects to keep their attention – no small feat if you’re a parent, or an entertainer. With that said, Georges recommends his children’s show for those 5-years and above in order for the group to be truly appreciative of the presentation.

Georges' 30-minute children’s show always includes the host child as an active participant, along with several of the other young guests. Georges employs large colorful props, humor and a quick wit to charm and amaze them. Parents often notice a hush ensues by the second effect as the children take notice that a true wizard in their midst. Georges’ repertoire is even clever enough to carry a Harry Potter theme at request.

After the children's show, Georges always offers a close-up magic presentation to the adults at hand, if you wish. This allows all your guests to appreciate the art and charm of engaging magic and provides a memorable event for young and old alike.
