We hired Nicholas for our corporate summer party! He was absolutely amazing. Everyone was raving about him and mind blown by his magic. I would absolutely recommend Nick for future events!
Booking - It was a real pleasure working with Nicholas - all interactions leading up to the event were professional, he was always prompt to respond and completely opening to discuss different options that fit our style and budget.
Performance - without a doubt Nicholas was the highlight of our 2 day event. He's performance is clever and timely, he did a fantastic job pulling the crowd into his show and mesmerizing our guests with his talented execution. Before the night concluded we had guests and vendors sourcing his contact information for future opportunities!
For my 40th Birthday I hired Nicholas Wallace, he was a pleasure to deal with and was very professional at all times. He is truly talented and had my guests at the edge of their seats the entire time. I loved his minimalism approach to his magic. His humor was clean and respectful and yet entertaining. Nicholas was respectful of all my guests and made sure different guests were included in the participation of his tricks. His performance was definitely the highlight of my party and all my guests were stunned. Having read many reviews from other magicians and mentalists while conducting my own research before hiring Nicholas, I was amazed at his performance and he was beyond my expectations. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Nicholas Wallace to entertain at your next corporate / private party!
