Kevin What can I say?!!!!!! My most talked about house guest ever!!!! Having read the reviews on your
website did not prepare me for the mind-blowing magic you came and performed at Paul's party. We all love
magic in our family and have seen many perform over the years- nobody has come close to the skill you showed.
The next evening (we had another night out for Paul's birthday!) the 'grown- ups' spent a large part of the
evening discussing all the tricks you had done- the kids are still talking about them. You nicely and cleverly
engaged most of the audience as well as charming them. Paul and I appreciated every minute of your show-
thank you for coming through and making our evening extra special.
