Richard was a top magician who entranced the kids with his magic and taught them how to do it too. Would recommend very highly. Easy manner, great with the kids, extremely entertaining and all round excellent value.

"I was the hostess and facilitator of the 60th birthday party and as such saw very little of Richard's act on the night. What I did observe of him was very good however and the other guests all loved him. One of our guests in particular was totally bowled over by him and my husband who's birthday it was commented that he was ""very very good"". Overall a very successful evening, thank you Richard :-)"

Hmmmm not sure about Richard to be honest, without being rude or offensive I think maybe he could be a bit past his sell by date...his act is rather outdated to say the least, his props have seen better days, and one wasnt even his own property...he had stuck a sticker over another magicians name! He was rather intolerant of people who werent totally interested in his act, he actually shushed a child at the party, much to the mums surprise. So in a nutshell.... Richard was a very nice man but I think my 4 year old Grandson dancing to Bruno Mars got more attention.
