“A guaranteed evening of amazement and laughter!”
Comedy Crossroads Entertainment; Des Moines, Iowa

“Our organization had hired other “entertainers” for previous events, and they were really bad (no one laughed, etc.). Having not seen you, we were a bit apprehensive, especially since we were paying more for you than we’ve paid for any other performer… We are really glad we booked you! I have seen good magicians and good comedians, but have never seen one who can blend the two so well! You were hilarious and the tricks were really top rate and unique. Everyone had a great time! If someone were thinking about bringing you to their event, I would tell them to definitely hire you!”
