I hired Chuck for my son's 8th birthday party and the show was great. He arrived on time and after a short set up was ready for the show. He kept a roomful of 7 and 8 year old's attention for nearly an hour. Well worth the price. They loved the show, especially the live bunny and bird. Each got a chance to be the magicians assistant. He also kept the adults entertained with his jokes and quick wit. I would highly recommend Chuck for birthday or any other special occasions.
