"Dear Neil,

Bravo, bravo, bravo!!! Our guests loved you and they loved your work tremendously. Several of them talked about you continuously over the weekend and we are still receiving messages from them of your magic. Thank you and well done on an excellent show.

A particular memory that stands out is a few guests coming to ask me who the man with the pens are...telling them you are the Distractionist...and them running off to go and find you before I could finish my sentence...Amazing!

We confidently applaud you and highly recommend you sir, knowing from energetic, enthusiastic, joyous and sparkling feedback that you did an incredible job of not only entertaining our guests, but inspiring some young minds too.

Thank you Neil and bravo once again.

Our very best wishes to you,

James and Theo"

Neil (the Distractionist)was great. All my guests loved him and we're fascinated by his tricks. Very warm and friendly and not at all pushy. Strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to add something special to an event.

Neil (The Distractionist) was great. Great on booking, great communication on the run up to my party and great on the night. All my guests loved him and said how good he was. He worked the room perfectly and spoke / performed to everyone. He was also great with my kids doing special tricks just for them. I would highly recommend and will definitely use again.

    Sleight of hand with everyday objects - cards, coins, rubber bands, utensils, jewellery- you name it, I'll vanish it!
