Through years of training and experience interacting with the public he's learned a thing or two about entertainment and what it takes to have a top notch show.
His arsenal of extreme world record breaking skills may be what captures peoples attention, but it's his charm and passion for entertainment that really draws you in. The perfect balance of comedy and education that will leave a lasting impression. A fun, up-beat, and up lifting program that inspires and moves many!
We met with him and discussed our ideas of what we wanted, he was very willing to tailor fit a show to meet our needs and environment. We had to reschedule our party date to have him be our entertainment, but we realized a busy performer is a well sought after one, we weren’t mistaken. Nick sure did deliver on his promises and had every person cheering with excitement and cracking up with laughter. His act was top notch! Will be calling him again in the future!
Response from Nick Penney:
I was more than happy to help out, and am looking forward to working with you again.
What a great show! My wife and I hired Nick for a holiday party we put on every year for our employees. He began with magic that people really seamed to enjoy, and ended with a more formal show where he swallowed fire and swords. It was very exciting! The best part, Nick let me remove the sword from his mouth! That was a tad scary, but a great experience!
A great show! Everyone loved it. Cant say i wasn't expecting that, my friends are still talking about it, even months later
