"This guys show is absolutely insane" The Huffington Post
"My husband and I love magic so when we were getting married we knew we needed to have a magician at our wedding. We were introduced to Gary through a friend who had him at their wedding and after reading all of the great reviews we decided to hire him and it turned out to be one of the best and most talked about parts of our wedding!
We opted to have Gary do strolling magic during our cocktail hour. He blended right in with our guests and caught them by surprise with his fantastic tricks. He has a variety of tricks in his repertoire ranging from simpler "ooh ahh" slight of hand tricks to more complex layered head scratchers. The reactions to his magic were priceless! And it was especially fun seeing him gauge his audience group and cater his tricks to their skepticisms, a true performer and magician!
Our guests are still talking about Gary and it was definitely a highlight of our wedding. HIRE HIM! You will not regret it." Sandra S Brooklyn US
"Gary came to our staff holiday party and he was definitely a highlight. He performs up close and personal, so his tricks are all the more astounding because you think you've got your eye on him. He had a wide range of tricks and all of them wowed us. He was engaging and so entertaining--I can't wait to see him again!" Allegra C Brooklyn US
"Gary MADE our wedding. During the cocktail hour he performed and he set the tone of the room perfectly. Many people were meeting for the first time and his amazing talent and humor was the perfect ice breaker. He was so charming we were all sad to see him leave! I wish he was my new best friend!" Karlie NYC US
"Gary performed a parlor show for 25 adults at our annual holiday party and every single guest LOVED him. He has a warm and genuine personality and is naturally funny. His magic is astounding and his personality lights up the room - could you ask for more?! Book him without reservation!" Michelle US
