"Ed entertained guests at my daughters 18th family meal - in a private room in a Chinese restaurant. He was very engaging and funny; with just the right amount of ""cheesy"" banter for the audience. Ed was very accommodating, fitting his act around the courses of the meal so everyone was entertained throughout the evening. Feedback from the family was great - from the oldest at 80 to the youngest at 17 - everyone enjoyed it. He left a special memento with the birthday girl which she will keep forever as a reminder of how special she felt on her birthday. So a big thank you and recommendation from us!! x"

"Having looked at a number of magicians for my Fiancées 50th birthday party I hired Ed as the feedback and videos were better than any others I could find. Communication from Ed was timely throughout and he was very thorough in finding out my needs and expectations.
With around fifty guests to entertain Ed did a quick demonstration of his skills to the wider audience and then spent the evening doing close up magic with the various groups and individuals. Everyone I spoke to said that he was funny, captivating, affable and absolutely fantastic at mesmerising people with his skills. I was absolutely delighted with everything that he did for our guests and my fiancée was over the moon as it was a surprise for her.
Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ed, not the cheapest on offer but the old adage that you get what you pay for is never more true!"

"Ed was excellent, the perfect act for our gathering. He arrived on time, just as dinner had finished and performed two 25 minute sets building up to a “Grand Finale”. A tough audience of 25 were thoroughly enthralled and entertained. I would not hesitate to recommend Ed to anyone looking for an audience friendly magic act. Oh, and he is a nice guy too!
