Dear Jim

It was a complete joy to work with you on your Funtastic Family Magic Show. Your energy and enthusiasm is fabulous. Our audience was amazed from beginning to end by your clever illusions. It is no small feat to create a show that entertains both children and adults, yet you provided us with a great experience for all ages. The kids were so excited to participate on stage, and it was great to see how you worked with the smallest kids as well as the older ones. Moms and Dads were also thrilled to be a part of the action.

We are always looking for ways to connect the community with the performing arts and your show fit the bill perfectly. For some, it was their first experience with magic and they LOVED it! It was also wonderful that the children all got the chance to meet the adorable Rocky the Rabbit after the show. 

I’m looking forward to working with you again soon.


Thanks again,

Kate Barrett
Production Manager

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your magic show at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center. I found your show particularly entertaining as you are multi talented with your humor and as a magician.  As I looked around the room the expression on the faces of kids and adults said it all, you had us all laughing and entertained!  Thanks for a great event!"

     --Bob Huber, Mayor of Simi Valley

"The Magic Show was a huge success.  As a school fundraiser, this was over the top!  We stopped selling tickets at 470!  Jim kept the audience in suspense and laughter simultaneously.  The magic was...amazing.  I would recommend two shows to everyone using Jim as a fundraiser (because we sold out).  A quality performance enjoyed by all."
