Michael put on a great show and we hope to hire him again in the future!
Michael is a total act of "magic". He created such an engaged crowd at our Nestle Waters employee appreciation dinner. He started his entertaining during the cocktail hour, with amazing tricks. I am in awe, as are my team members, with his talent of magic skills. He also surprised many with his act of hypnotism. We give him high kudos! Thank you very much, Michael!
Mr. Gutenplan is a really fun, professional, and talented magician! From our initial contact he was quick to respond and gave us lots of information so we felt comfortable moving forward to hire him. No regrets! I can't believe most of the stuff he did, people are still talking about it!
Magic Michael performed at my rehearsal dinner, and he made such an impression on me, my husband, our families, and our closest friends. Michael has an incredible personality that shines so brightly when he performs. You can tell not only is he amazing at what he does, but also he loves it. He is a true performer, and had us mystified! I would recommend Magic Michael for any type of event-- he's a true professional and his magic/illusions still have us in awe!
Michael is a top notch performer. Not only is he fantastic in front of large crowds, he is perfect in intimate sessions as well. His engaging, caring style retains just enough mischief to make him memorable - and utterly delightful. Highly professional, he has a sensibility for the level of his audiences and is capable of pleasing customers covering the entire range of sophistication.
I've experienced Michael's shows on a few occasions and always presently astounded and entertained. A must see!!!
We had the privladge of having Michael perform at a party a couple of months ago and it was a great act, kids and adults were amazed. I strongly recomend Michael with a doubt!!!
We hired Michael to perform at a client lunch. A little unorthodox but I love magic. The clients were high wealth investors for a hedge fund. Michael's magic was top notch, sophisticated and baffling. He entertained us all and left us scratching our heads.
