Highly interactive! Loads of audience participation!
Birthday party magic shows are highly interactive. The kids participate every step of the way. They get to help with the magic tricks! My show is tons of fun and all about the kids!
Parents love my show too! I perform eye-popping magic that is fun for the kids and adults!
The birthday child gets a free magic kit with all packages!
The show is Adventure theme! I take the kids on a magical journey around the world!
Richard did a great job. Highly entertaining for both adults and kids at our party. Would highly recommend him!
He was a very nice person, friendly and on time. His work was very rusty though. Everyone could see or figure out his tricks. His last act of passing cards from one person to another was probably the best that everyone liked the most, but still we figured out his work. Even though he was there before guests arrived around 6 and left around 9, there was a lot of waiting around. Dinner and appetizers were served and a lot of his time was broken into pieces. We didn't feel like he had long enough entertaining material. He needs to update his adult show for sure and practice more to be much quicker so people can't figure out his tricks :) We enjoyed having him and wish him well for his career.
Response from Magic Makers Entertainment:
I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy the show. That breaks my heart. I know I flashed on one of the tricks, but everybody else seemed to enjoy the rest of the show and I got nothing but positive feedback from your guests, especially during the strolling.
As for the time commitment, that was something we discussed prior to doing the show. We agreed that I would not be to perform while people are eating. I had to break it up because the meal was served in different courses. The original agreement was only for an hour and a half of time. You asked me if I can stretch that to 2 hours and I did it at no extra charge. I didn't find out till I got there that I was staying until 9 p.m., which is a total of 3 hours. I was happy to accommodate you and I did not ask for any more money. I'm only mentioning this to clarify for those reading the review so they understand the situation with the timing of the performances. I tracked how long each segment was and it still came out to roughly two hours.
As for the Magic, there is no excuse for that. It wasn't what you thought it would be. For that I am sorry and I'm happy to refund the tip you gave me at the end of the show. It was a rather large tip, so I assumed everything was to your liking. But, clearly, I did not earn it. Please email me and let me know if you would like it refunded back onto the same credit card or if I should refund the tip using a different method.
All in all, I'm actually happy with this review because the magic is an easy thing to fix. All I need to do is update some of the magic and watch my angles. Something you can't fix his personality and professionalism, and you seem to be very happy with that.
I greatly enjoyed performing for you and for your company. You were all lovely people! I hope you take a chance on me again and next time I can guarantee I will blow everyone away with the magic!
Remember to email me about that refund of the tip.
Thank you again and have a happy holiday!
California Joe was great with the kids, very professional, communicated with me thoroughly in planning for the event, flexible with the setup in our home, and punctual! We chose the science magic show since my 10 year old daughter loves both science & magic. California Joe was very informative, teaching the kids about science while also showing them a lot of neat tricks. All of the kids had a blast! I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends & family!
This was my first Blue & Gold celebration and my first time planning it! I decided to go with a magic theme but wanted to stay with a more nature inspired motif rather than black top hats, deck of cards and lights. I set out to find a magician and came across California Joe a Magical Adventure. He fit the part perfectly! He had tons of positive reviews. I reached out to him and found out he was a Boy Scout! He could not be more perfect! He stayed in contact with me until the day of the event, was professional and supportive. The event could not have gone better! He was a hit! So I was a hit! He was fun, approachable, funny and magical! The kids and parents loved him. I received so many complements for his performance. Thank you Joe for helping make a memorable experience for our pack!
Richard did a great job entertaining our guests at our annual holiday party. His close up magic was very entertaining and wow'ed everyone who had a chance to see. We highly recommend that you book Richard if you ever need a strolling magician that can entertain a large amount of people.
