"I booked David for my wife' Birthday Party and he was fantastic.
He arrived before he was due and he was very professional, thoughtful and brought his own ideas to the party. David managed to blend into the background with ease and worked both the room individually and the wider audience. At the end of the night nearly everyone commented on not how easy he was to get on with but also how they were amazed by his tricks that on Halloween Saturday left us all spellbound. I would certainly recommended his services and we thank him for his time and effort on the night."
