Naathan Phan is hilarious! No, I mean, really so very funny. He'll surprise you with sheer silliness. But I've also seen him in more serious roles, and he does great there too. And you'd think with all the times I've seem him perform, from volunteering at cub scout camp to the community festival (in Tustin) to his stage shows in plays and magic performances to emceeing events; after all this he surprises and delights me every time. My kids are all comedians (non-professional), so I've gotten to experience many different levels of comic timing, but Mr. Phan has the best comic timing IMHO. It must just be his natural talent, because I've never seen him off his game. If I had to give one criticism, and maybe this is a plus for some people, he can be a bit edgy, nudging the boundaries of appropriateness. I'm a prude though, so take that how you want to. All-in-all though, he's my favorite magician and an excellent all around performer.
