Buzz was absolutely phenomenal. So surprised to find such an excellent performer and human. He had both the children and the adults in stitches. Magical!
We hired Howie Didit for my niece's 8th Birthday Party. He was very professional and came early to set up. The show was very funny and entertaining for the kids and parents too. He really engaged the kids and had them laughing and shouting along with the show. It was great fun for everyone. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a kids party magician.
Howie did a magic show for my daughter's 4th birthday. I was worried about the kid's attention spans, but his show is so perfect for kids. They were laughing and shouting and completely captivated. My daughter felt like such a star. Can't recommend enough!
He was perfect for our turning 5 yr old daughter and her friends. They loved the tricks and jokes! The jokes went on a little long for the adults tastes but the kids loved it!
Response from Howie Didit:
I am sorry I disappointed Emily, I was hired to perform a children’s birthday magic show. My goal is to entertain the children and have the adults watch and enjoy the children being entertained. If the children “loved it” I achieved my goal; I did go the extra mile and stayed after the children’s show and performed close-up infusions for Emily’s Husband and his friends at no extra charge.
Thank you Howie gave our children's choir a wonderful magic show. You helped us to top our choir camp ending with a perfect note!
We had a very rambunctious pool party. Buzz was able to capture their attention and hold it for a long chunk of time. Incorporating the bday girl and parents made it super super sweet. Great memories for my now 7 year old princess!
Hour Didit was wonderful to work with. He entertained our guests at
A garden party dinner during cocktail hour. He roamed the room.....Everyone loved and had a great time as he keep us in suspense. Highly recommend!
Buzz was really entertaining and as he claims "He is good with Kids". I found him to be good with Adults too. The adults in the event also enjoyed the show. I would definitely recommend him for any shows.
The kids loved the show.
Everyone including the adults were thoroughly entertained. Excellent show. Will recommend to anyone.
We booked Howie Didit for our daughter's 7th birthday party and it was a blast! The show was a solid hour and the kids were completely engaged the entire time. They were laughing, giggling, and screaming -- they enjoyed every second of it. The best part was our daughter truly felt like she was the star. We highly recommend Howie Didit!
Very organized and kept the kids entertained.
Kids had a great time with the magician! Now, my daughter is asking a magician for her birthday too!
Howie arrived early to set up and was very professional. Incorpaorated the Birthday Boy and Mom and Dad into his show making it extra fun. Thank you for making our son's birthday extra special!
Howie arrived early and was easy to communicate with. The kids were laughing within minutes during his humorous magic show. His finale where the birthday boy comes up, gets a certificate and produced a real rabbit that the kids can pet is a huge hit!
Buzz kept everyone entertained and laughing. We had kids at our party from the age of 2 to 12 and everyone loved the show, including all of the parents. I highly recommend "Howie Didit" - you will be blown away!!!
The kids loved him!
Mr. Howie Didit was a hit at our kid's birthday party. His magic show was great; keeping the kids entertained for more than an hour. He was very funny, personable and professional.
Howie Didit was a hit at our 6 year old's birthday party. From the time of booking, Buzz was super professional and detail oriented. He followed up and was very quick to communicate. He kept all the kids' attention throughout the hourlong show and had special tricks to involve the birthday girl and family. Buzz showed up early, set up all his props before the children arrived to keep the "illusion" alive and really pleased the whole group- parents included. We'd recommend him to all families for kid centered events.
The kids loved him!!!
Howie did a wonderful job and the kids loved him. He is perfect for the event where families with young kids came. Howie came early to allow plenty of time for set up and he was flexible to move his schedule back so it would not conflict with the EggHunt schedule.
I would definitely hire him again next year.
Howie Didit was awesome, everyone in attendance had a wonderful time from start to finish, the children were out of their seats in amazement as Howie performed and included their friends in the show -- a stunning event.
We were very happy to have hired Howie, would definitely have him back in the future and would highly recommend him to others.
Everything was expensive and the tricks were not very impressive.
Response from Howie Didit:
I can't understand why Mr. Zimmerman posted the review with 3 stars and a disappointing comment, I arrived in plenty of time to set up and entertain the birthday child before the show and I was ready on time. The show was delayed 20 minutes because the children attending the party were late arriving and I assured the Mrs. Zimmerman that it was no problem; the price the Zimmerman's paid was the amount quoted in my bid when the he hired me and the show was the exact same show that has received over 20. 5 star reviews including arriving early to set up and staying longer to give ample time for all guests to pet the rabbit after the show; in addition Mrs. Zimmerman told me she was very happy with the performance when I was paid. Mr. Zimmerman with whom I had very little contact with posted the negative review complaining that it was expensive and he was not impressed. I performed a very entertaining show and I feel it was not appropriate to give Mr. Zimmerman the discount he requested.
Awesome show... Buzz kept kids with lot of tricks for long long time....
We hired Howie Didit for my Son's 3rd Birthday party. All the kids and guests admired the show. We had great fun watching the magic tricks by Howie Didit.
Howie was great with the kids. Organized and entertaining.
The process of coordinating went well. All promised arrangements were fulfilled. I was personally not at the event but was told the kids really enjoyed the show.
I was not there personally but was told the kids had fun....the gigsalad process worked really well; it's a great service.
Howie was organized and in tune with how engaged kids were. Will definitely hire again
Nice variety of tricks were well prepared. Kids and grown ups had a good time together. Great job!
Howie Didit was excellent! He was very good with all the kids, added humor and storytelling to his act as well as included my daughter in his rabbit appearing act to make her 9th birthday special! I would recommend him to any friend.
Buzz was the magician for my son's 1st birthday!! He did an amazing job! There was not much kids and he had to gear the act to also entertain adults. The crowd got into it with his enthusiasm and love for what he does!
Would recommend Buzz for any event!
Buzz was very sweet and arrived very early, in fact, some of my guests thought he was my grandfather! When he introduced himself, he looked disheveled and asked for a soda. When I explained how others had set up the show, he didn't like the way I asked him to perform the show, so without asking me he switched the setup. Before the show began, he was asking my guests if there would be more food and walked back and forth to where he was performing and the food table. He was confident in his magic ability and assured me this would be the best show. Sadly, it was ok. There was a lot of screaming...and the magic was ok. He seemed like maybe he was having an off day...he was short with some of the kids. When it was time to put the rabbit away, there was a child that didn't get to pet it. He told the child that was too bad, they should have watched the show. Many of the older (7-8 year olds) kids couldn't sit through the show, it was more for very small kids. I wish Buzz the best of luck.
Response from Howie Didit:
My response to the posted feedback.
When I arrived I was dressed neat, I made 5 trips up a long flight of stars, through the home to the back yard patio carrying heavy cases; when I was finished I looked messy; I was introduced to Karin and I asked for a soda, I was given water and I was shown to the performance area and l went to change into my clean costume
The position on the patio that Karin wanted me to perform was the short wide side, I changed position on the patio to the narrow deep side so all the children could sit directly in front of me as I performed, I was not aware that permission was required
I asked parents NOT to serve food during the show so the kids can jump around without spilling food
The child that asked to pet the rabbit; the rabbit was already in my car and I made a sincere comment that I was sorry he had missed the show
Karin did not post feedback about the magic show, I was told by parents that the children loved the show and everyone had a good time
I booked Howie Didit for my son's 6th birthday party. We had about 15 kids and the same number of grown-ups in attendance. Everyone enjoyed the show! My son as as well as another child participated in a magic trick. My son (the birthday boy) was awarded a Junior Magician's Certificate, which he loved! It was a wonderful hour of laughter and magic.
Incorporating Mom into the event made the adults laugh as well!
buzz was great with communicating from start to finish. he kept the kids' attention and kept them actively engaged for the entire hour. the kids were sqealing on delight so much that one parent jokingly asked if they were on a roller coaster ride. would definitely recommend him and would definitely use him again.
Howie came to our community family carnival/bar-b-que last Sunday. He was early and flexible. We had a lot going on and Howie worked with me to fit in a wonderful magic show and roaming magic that was the "icing on the cake"! Thanks for the fun for the children and the adults!
Howie Didit was very funny, engaging and had great magical tricks. The kids loved him! His finale was very well-received, culminating with making a bunny appear. My 8 yr old daughter felt extra special as his assistant, too. He was great!
Held a party for my toddler. Howie Didit kept all the kids entertained, and parents were amused. Great communication before event and very reliable. Would definitely recommend!
Engaged well with children, totally captivated the audience. A pleasure to work with. Very complaint and accommodating to our program. Will definitely call on him again.
It's been a few days since our party, and we're all still in awe from some of his tricks!
Buzz was extremely professional, and I've never communicated with someone so easily about tedious details. He made it all very easy and available, and was super friendly and flexible the entire time.
The tricks he showed were awesome - our guests were howling with amazement and followed him around even when he moved to another group to show his stuff.
I would rate him higher if I could! Thanks for being an amazing addition to our event!
Howie was wonderful. He came in and did some adult magic during cocktail hour at the beginning of our event. Then transitioned into the room with the children and kept them very entertained. Not only was his magic great, but his story telling was wonderful as well. I will definitely be contacting him for future events.
Howie arrived early with his amazing set that filled our room with magic. He greeted the birthday girl kindly and taught her a trick that made her feel special. He kept 20+ boys and girls enthralled for an hour and involved the parents too. A true professional and joy to have at any party.
Howie Didit was wonderful! Very entertaining! He had the children screaming in laughter!
Howie performed for my 8 year old daughter's sweet, old school backyard birthday party. He communicated clearly leading up to the event, arrived in plenty of time and performed a very adorable magic show that was engaging, age appropriate and incorporated the birthday girl throughout. I highly recommend Howie Didit.
Howie Didit was great for our son's 5th birthday. He kept 25 kids in rapt attention for over an hour, which is quite a feat itself. He got the kids very involved in the show and everyone had a great time. Would definitely recommend.
A terrific, fun, entertaining time was had by all! Kids and adults ages 1.5 and up!!! About 50 in all Something in the show for everyone!
Response from Howie Didit:
I called Mary to see where I fell short in my performance to earn a 4 star,rating.
She was very nice on the phone and kindly explained that no one is ever perfect and she never rates feedback with 5 stars.
Howie did a great job at my son's 6th birthday party! He kept all the kids engaged and entertained! I would definitely recommend him to friends and family!
Howie showed up on time, setup a great stage, worked the crowd ( old and young). He did a great job and would highly recommend him.
Response from Howie Didit:
They were great kids and the parents were very accommodating; it was a pleasure performing for them and I had a lot of fun as well.
Thank you for hiring me
