Wow - Wayne made our event!

By Doug R. on October 10, 2014

I was expecting Wayne to be a hit, but I was not expecting the level of appreciation our VIP clients expressed. He turned our business event into an enjoyable night that will be remembered. The best result was that he broke down all barriers between my sales people and our clients in a fun way. I would recommend Wayne for any social or business event!

We hired Wayne for our latest trade show at the Bellagio in Vegas and he was spectacular. He entertained for three days on the floor and everyone was blown away. He entertained at the opening cocktail party and it was easy to figure out where he was by the screams and applause that followed him wherever he was. His ability to incorporate our sales and product ideas into his magic was a thing of beauty. He was professional, funny, amazing and tireless. He made my job as President really easy. We have since hired him again. Wayne spent 20 minutes with me learning key features and benefits and worked them into his act. Every customer remembered we were there above the 120 other vendors.

Fantastic Magician!

By Robin B. on August 10, 2015

We enjoyed seeing Wayne so much at a previous event that we had to have him come for my daughter's birthday party! He is an amazing magician and delivered a great performance. He is wonderfully engaging with his audience - both kids and adults and entertains all ages. We are looking for another opportunity to have him again sometime! Thanks for a terrific party Wayne!

Great idea for a birthday party

By Leslie R. on April 16, 2015

My daughter organized a surprise birthday party for my husband. She wanted a magician roam the party. Wayne Anderson was the perfect choice. He entertained everyone at the party. The main comment was "How did he do that?"

Entertainment tailored to the audience

By Jennifer S. on April 2, 2015

At our grand opening event Wayne delighted and impressed our guests ranging from small children who were a bit intimidated at first, to teenagers who were too bored or cool for magic, to retirees who have seen it all, to the hostess who was too busy to stop for a moment to play. He won us all over with his humor and truly amazing tricks! And he tied in a few clever endorsements for our company. High quality, unobtrusive and tremendously entertaining.

Great entertainment for a party

By Tracey T. on February 9, 2015

We had a 70 person holiday luncheon and wanted to have something extra besides just visiting with one another. Wayne walked around to the various groups of people chatting and did his "magic". This brought joy to the teams and a lot of "How did he do that?" comments. Wayne made sure he was able to circulate through all of the various people at our party and did very good follow up to ensure we were satisfied. I'd highly recommend Wayne!

We booked Wayne because we wanted something different and especially memorable for our family Christmas gathering. Our six grandchildren (ages 4-10) were dazzled, and their parents were mystified. Wayne involved everyone and kept us laughing.

Do not hesitate to book Wayne!

By Tamara H. on October 7, 2014

We won an auction at our kids's school and asked Mr. Anderson to host a magic show at our daughter's 9th birthday party. What a blast we all had! Wayne responded immediately to all email inquiries and was prompt, engaging to both kids and adults and truly a showman. As the mom, I believe I was more amazed than the kids. I cannot emphasize enough how much fun we all had, and no one should hesitate to book Wayne's magic show!

All Work and No Magic would be a Dull Event

By Jo S. on October 1, 2014

As the event coordinator for our annual Client Summit, I chose not to tell anyone that a magician would be entertaining during our cocktail and networking session. Wayne made his entry just as the last presentation ended and the Expion Team and our clients were heading for the bar.
As if by magic, he appeared out of nowhere and in front of our CEO and a couple clients – the bewilderment left their faces as he begin to dazzle them. Within minutes they were laughing and shaking their heads.
For nearly 2 hours, Wayne worked his magic around the room and his card tricks were a perfect match for our Casino Night theme. Employees and clients alike were mesmerized and baffled. Some demanding repeats of trick or following him and asking others, “how did he do that?”
It is nearly a month since our client summit and people in the office are still talking about “the magician” who performed at the Summit. I’m working on plans for our holiday party and Wayne will once again be a special guest, although I probably can’t pull off another surprise.

Simply Amazing!

By Joe M. on September 29, 2014

For the past two years, Wayne has generously given his time to help Foodbank24, the new media telethon to support the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. Wayne's entertainment has quickly become a crowd favorite. His abilty to entertain both children and adults alike, make him one of the area's top performers.

This year, Wayne entertained a packed house during the Telethon's social media mixer. The next morning, our on-air host was still talking about how impressive his magic was.

Wedding Magic

I had so many compliments over you. They thought I was unique at a wedding and everyone thought you were amazing. There was even another amateur magician there and he said you were great.
Thank you so much.

I don't know how he did that....

By Jennifer B. on July 15, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed the fun and entertainment that you brought to our client event. Throughout the evening I could overhear “I don’t know how he did that!” and that makes it all worth it. Having a “work type” event can get a little formal and having you there certainly broke down any formality and made it fun and not work.
Please feel free to post this on your site – thanks again!

Incredible magician!

By Dan W. on February 16, 2014

Wayne did a post-holiday holiday party for a group of 90 kids and adults. He just appeared (as if by magic) and started interacting with guests. He was amazing and people are still talking about the event weeks later. He, on his own, decided to do a 20 minute "show" for the 25-30 kids who were rapt with attention. He was the hit of the party and will have a hard time replicating next year!

Amazing is an understatement!

By Ann H. on January 26, 2014

Of all the strange events for which a magician could perform, I hired Wayne for a "party" in honor of my husband after his death. It was more than a celebration of life event since it was what he wanted and included all his favorite things which is where Wayne comes in. Without a doubt, he was the hit if the party, and I've had many phone calls and emails applauding his talents. Don't hesitate to contact him...he is very professional and engaging and well worth anything he charges.

Wayne Anderson walked the room during a welcome reception for our national sales meeting, performing at tables and standing groups.

The Magic of Wayne!

By Caroline S. on October 21, 2012

Not only is Wayne's work magical, but his style and adaptability is magical as well. He has amazed us multiple times when he has come to Duke to share his gift of magic with patients and families on the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Unit. He always adapts to the needs of our audience with ease and provides an escape from the daily medical routines and stressors that come along with being in the hospital for an extended time. He can bring smiles to faces of all ages, toddlers to adults and has staff & families still trying to figure out his amazing tricks weeks after his show. We are very thankful to have discovered Wayne and highly recommend him for any special event.

Wayne did an amazing job of keeping everyone entertained! He would be a great addition to any party or event that you are having.

Hired as: Strolling/Close-up Magician, Mentalist

Wayne was a delight at our party. We had a ~20+ person in-home get together and he blew the crowd away, working in small groups. One guest, who knows a few tricks himself, said 'there's probably only a handful of people in the world that can do what he does'. We were all still talking the next day about how he did it, hypothesizing and coming up with outlandish ideas. Eventually, we settled on witchcraft. Wayne was absolutely the hit of the party and everyone remarked that it was such a nice idea. I would absolutely rec his talents and book him again for any sort of event where you want people to come together, meet, have fun, and be a little spooked! Thanks Wayne!

Wayne was simply wonderful! He worked the crowd at my recent high-brow fundraiser and got rave reviews from my guests. Not only was he personable and funny, but his close-up magic left people in awe.

I thought everything went extremely well last night. Everybody; the residents, wait staff and management thought you were funny and enjoyed your magic! There was never a dull moment. I think the residents really enjoyed the traveling magic from table to table, made it a more personal experience that you were doing a trick just for their table. We would love to have you back another time (maybe when we have a stage)! Definitely worth the money.

We have now had Wayne perform at two of our fund raising events... one with 130 people and one with over 200 people. At both events, people were mesmerized and astounded with his performances. Even being close up and watching his every move, everyone commented on how there was no way what they were seeing could happen. Yet, it did!

If you are looking for entertainment that would leave people talking and scratching their heads for many days to come, I heartily endorse and recommend the Amazing Magic of Wayne Anderson.

Wayne was hired by us to perform at our wedding ceremony in July of this year after we saw him perform at the Angus Barn one evening. Not only can he perform feats of magic in this "busy" environment, but he tailors his performance to adults one moment and children the next. All saw his performance as nothing short of amazing! He has that infectious attitude of fun, showmanship, and drive to amaze his audiences. We were well pleased with his efforts and highly recommend him to anyone with a special event to highlight the event or party.

I have seen many magicians in my time, to be quite honest my brother is a magician as well, but none of them compare to Wayne. Wayne has a great gift and he is an unbelievable entertainer! Our club thouroghly enjoyed his act!

I helped found the First Flight Rotary in Kill Devil Hills, so I'm a great fan of Rotary and the work they do. It was a fun group and we laughed as much as you can in 20 minutes. What an enjoyable lunch. Thank you guys.

What can I say? We were all so stunned at our Annual Pool Party that we are still talking about it. He was great with the kids and even put on a special little show for them. You could hear them gasp at times. He also walked around and performed little up close and personal shows for the adults. We'd hire him again in a heartbeat. Great at what he does and very funny. Thanks, Wayne!

Wayne's magic is absolutely incredible! Have no idea how he can do all that he can. His performance had us mesmerized. Would love to have him entertain my grandchildren or adults at a party anytime.

Wayne strolled the event presenting up-close magic to attendees and exhibitors. Each presentation ended with him passing out his cards with the invitation to come by our booth for a "special gift" which we, being in the promotional products business, had available. Every visitor to our booth who had seen Wayne's performance was amazed and delighted by his skill. We WILL hire him again.

Wayne performed his magic at our Rotary Club meeting in April. He was dynamic and entertained us all. Moving a fork on a table without touching it was powerful along with his ability to correctly identify the audience member's card that had been sealed in his pocket. I would highly recommend Wayne and his magic for other Rotary clubs and professional organizations.

Wayne is such a talented magician, and a great performer as well. He had a challenging audience of 6-9 year olds, and kept them all amazed (and the adults were pretty well boggled too). Thanks for a fabulous event!

Wayne performed an excellent magic show for our 23 dinner party guests. His tricks were "amazing", he encouraged participation from the audience, and his banter with the guests was great fun. The show was affordably priced and Wayne was both pleasant and professional throughout the booking and delivery process. We all give him "5 stars"!

From the first time I met Wayne, he had me in stitches and I was blown away with his magic. I do not consider myself a naive or gullible person, but he sure pulled some wool over my eyes. . .I took him immediately to my family and we all cracked up watching him do his thing. Sometimes I giggle at just the memory of Wayne's slight of hand! He's the best. Hire him!

KA at Duke University hosted Wayne for a semiformal dinner and was
extremely pleased with the performance. Wayne was terrific and really
tailored his show to our audience. It was great entertainment and well
worth every penny. We would like to recommend Wayne for future
entertainment opportunities and will surely host Wayne again in the future!

Lela's English is not as good as her Spanish. This was a great birthday party for some kids and adults up in Franklinton at a park outside. The birthday boy loves Magic.
