About The Amazing Dave

Professional Silly Person and FUN Expert!

Dave’s show is a high energy interactive experience guaranteed to delight children and adults! It is packed full of exciting magic, amazing juggling, and the silliest audience participation you will ever see! The Show averages 10 – 15 laughs per minute! Dave will have your audience in stitches as he juggles plungers, pulls bananas out of children’s ears, vanishes objects with an 8 foot magic wand, and makes an audience member float in the air!

Dave is the Winner of The LA Comedy Festival, Recipient of The Governor's Award in Arts Education, and performs regularly aboard the largest cruise ships in the World for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines!



Hilarious and Engaging!

By Catherine Y. on April 1, 2014

We used Dave for our baby's first birthday party. There were lots of children, ranging from ages 2-12. Every single one of them loved the magic show. Dave is extremely good with the children and knows how to really entertain them. All the kids were laughing and all the adults were laughing as well. Dave did the 45 minute show for us, and had the entire audience engaged the whole time (not easy for young ones, ya know).

Dave was also very kind and professional. I was impressed by his professionalism. He corresponded quickly via email and phone calls. He called prior to the event to confirm the date and location. He arrived on time and set up quickly. Also, I was appreciative that the deposit was not a ridiculous amount as some other magicians require.

I have to say that I was also touched by Dave's kindness and honesty. He just seems like a genuinely nice person.

Thanks Amazing Dave! You really rocked at our party! :)

Worth every penny! :)

By Deema L. on April 24, 2016

We booked Dave for our daughter's 2nd birthday and it was the best decision we made, he was worth every penny! I was worried that some kids wouldn't be able to sit for 40 minutes throughout the entire show, but every child from those that were babies all the way up to 10 years old were glued to their seat. Even the adults were entertained! He was a hit and everyone kept talking about how great he was! Dave was punctual, and set up an entire scene for the show--something I wasn't expecting, there was a backdrop and everything! Dave did jokes, juggling, magic, and so much more! Best party I had for my kids so far, I highly recommend booking Dave! He is truly talented.

Birthday party - 6 year old

By Nikhil M. on December 16, 2015

It was really smooth going with Dave - from the time of booking till the end of the event. Easy to book, very responsive. On the day he was 30 min early to set up so everything could go on time. The show was truly amazing, he kept the kids entertained for the entire hour and a half. Some of his magic tricks amazed most of the adults in the party. We had an excellent time and would totally recommend him.

Amazing Dave did a fabulous job at our "Open House" event.
Many families commented on how much their children enjoyed his show..."I have
never heard my child laugh so much!" . Also, he demonstrated excellent patience
with some of the children that were a bit more distracting when he was trying to do
his close up magic. I would highly recommend Amazing Dave for your event/party!

Response from The Amazing Dave:

Hello Gloria,
Thank you so much for inviting me to perform at your school! It's always a pleasure to perform for such great kids, parents, and teachers!
Hope to see you all again soon!

Very professional

By Kevin T. on May 26, 2015

Dave is great and very professional when communicating prior to the event. He asked about all the details and were very flexible. He was also very sensitive about what's going on with the event. The performance was great as all kids and adults were laughing throughout the show. Great job and thanks Dave for being part of our party.

Was Dave Worth it?

By Allan A. on March 18, 2015

Absolutely. Worth every penny. Honestly, we were a bit concerned about hiring a magician off of the web for my daughter's 4th birthday party. We had 57 kids and 51 adults Rsvp'd. We seriously could not disappoint that many. Dave delivered with ease. This guy captivated a huge group of adults and kids for an hour with comedy and magic. He made the party an absolute hit. Thanks again Dave. Just call him, you will be glad you did.

Amazing Dave lives up to his name

By Eddy L. on October 7, 2014

So we hired Dave as entertainment for all the children attending my wife's birthday party.

He was GREAT. He made balloon animals, bicycles, swords, even a rainbow for them and his magic not only kept the kids entertained (ages 2-8) but also mesmerized the adults.

I went through multiple youtube videos of different magicians before deciding on hiring Dave. He was professional, courteous, punctual, and cordial.

Definitely a top flight entertainer and we would consider using him again.

Dave was the hit of the party!

By Pamela G. on April 21, 2014

We booked Dave for my 10 yr. old daughters birthday party at our home.
He was on time, funny, age appropriate and all around a pleasure to work with. Dave responded immediately to my initial inquiry and always was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had prior to the event. We would highly recommend Dave as ell as hire him again. Thank you.

So Amazing

By Fiona C. on March 25, 2014

Cannot recommend The Amazing Dave highly enough! I booked him for my daughter's 8th birthday party at our house, he performed a brilliant show to 35 kids & as many adults, it was so lovely to see a room full of 5-8 year olds totally engaged & laughing so much. My daughter is really shy, but he even managed to get her involved in a couple of magic tricks, the kids just loved him & the parents too. You know an entertainer is good when children are still talking about him & re-telling his jokes in the school playground the next day. Thank you Dave, you made our party!

He's just as good as his name!

By Karlotta on March 23, 2014

We had him perform for our daughters' 2nd and 5th birthday party and he was a hit with both the 30 kids (ages 3-10) in the audience as well as the parents. Lots of parents came to tell me what an awesome job he did after the performance. He is great and kept the kids entertained for an hour and a half. They loved him so much, I had to wait until the last balloon was twisted before we could sing happy birthday.

Amazing Dave is Amazing

By Doan W. on January 27, 2014

We used Amazing Dave as the entertainment for my son's 3 yo birthday party. Most of the attendees were between 2-4 years old. So I was a little apprehensive about how engaged this group would be by a magic show. I wanted something to keep the kids busy without hiring the equivalent of a Hollywood Blvd. roaming superhero. Dave showed up on time and did balloon art for the kids as families were arriving the first hour. Afterwards, he then did his magic show. The kids all participated in the various acts. Every child was engaged and laughing in hysterics throughout the show. The parents at the party all commented on how great the show was. I would highly recommend Amazing Dave as the entertainment for your party!

Well deserved to use word AMAZING!!

By Ida . N. on December 9, 2013

Dave has a gift of entertaining audience without extra toys or devices. That speaks of a natural talent. We had children who are 5 or 6 years old. Probably most of you know it's not an easy task to keep their attention fully on the subject , have them follow guidance. Without exceptions, all of them willingly followed every step Dave asked them to do.
Moreover there was a lady at the party who I've known for more than 25 years. She hardly ever smiles, yet Dave made her laugh.
Dave has a gift we were blessed to invite him, thank you for 200%commitment to your job.

One of the best shows I have seen!

By Milena W. on March 4, 2013

The Amazing Dave recently performed at my daughter's 6th birthday party and he was absolutely wonderful! My daughter and her entire class were laughing the entire time and many of the parents complimented me on the party. I have seen many children's magicians before but Dave is by far the best I have seen! The Levitation trick at the end of the show was GREAT!

Best Family Entertainer Ever!!!

By Simon M. on March 2, 2013

This is an unsolicited review of The Amazing Dave.
I've hired Dave for several parties over the years, and my advice to you is HIRE HIM NOW for your family's event. (Except for the first Sunday morning in February, where we have dibs on him every year!)

I have hired Dave for my son's 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th birthday parties. Somehow Dave takes the perfect show and makes it better every year!

I have to say that I have NEVER seen either of my kids laugh as hard as Dave makes them laugh. I am including their reactions to all of the Pixar and Disney Movies they have seen, all of their favorite cartoons, and even their funny uncle (sorry Jeff!)

Dave is not only profoundly gifted, but he is SO easy to work with, ALWAYS early, and seems like an all around great guy.

He has kids (and adults) up on stage helping throughout the entire show. I'll let you experience the surprises for yourself. (OK one spoiler - he floats a kid in the air!!!)

Amazing Dave was AMAZING!

By Paul G. on March 1, 2013

I had the pleasure of hiring The Amazing Dave for my son's 5th birthday party! My son is not one for sitting still but Dave's show had him glued to his seat the entire time. I couldn't believe how much him and his classmates were laughing! The adults really enjoyed the show as well! Everyone is still talking about how great the party was!
