Above and Beyond the Belief

From the start of the process to the end of the performance Jim was totally professional, communicative and helpful.

As for the performance itself he had 16 people young and old(er) in the palm of his hand for for an hour with his routine .

The party was a ‘special’ birthday treat and Jim took the time to make her night returning to to repeat tricks that may have been difficult for her to see ( due to the size of the group) and repeated them for her benefit as well as teaching her a trick of her own.

The birthday lady said it was her best birthday since she was 10 and Jim played a large part in that.

Book him and enjoy

Amazing tricks from a whitty entertainer

He had all of our guests totally amazed and transfixed with his slight of hand and close up tricks
The guests were talking about Jim late into the night and the following day so to that end he was truly an entertainer.
A big thank you from the Ellis wedding party,

Great entertainment

Wanted something different to celebrate our first friends gathering post pandemic. From the start Jim offered great communication and a very seamless booking process. Jim arrived early for an hour of close up magic, he performed a number of tricks for each of us (9 people), it was as much fun watching others tricks as well as participating in our own. Another magic trick was remembering all our names well within the hour! Definitely the highlight of our evening and still trying to figure out how he does it! Thanks again Jim

Bewildering and outstanding!

Jim is outstanding! We hired him as entertainment after our wedding breakfast as an alternative to dancing (due to Covid), but I would choose Jim over dancing any day! He amazed and bewildered us, our guests and staff. And there were plenty of laughs. He did a short show for everyone before making his way around the tables along with alcohol gel to keep everyone safe. Everyone loved him.
Jim was fast at communicating and even took a lateral flow test before to ensure he was fine to work. I will be using Jim again for any future events!

Fantastic Performance!

Jim was excellent start to finish. Such a great service in terms of booking to start initially, very accommodating and took time to understand our event and tailor his performance to suit. The performance itself was excellent. It was a work event for Blue Monday to cheer up our staff and it absolutely did that. Everyone loved it and was very impressed. Thank you again!

Jim was just brilliant

Jim came to entertain at our family celebration - young children at lunch time and then a dinner party for 26 in the evening. He was fantastic at both. he really thought about what would be most suitable for each group and kept everyone spellbound; he even had time to teach some of the party some of his card tricks. the whole day was a joy and everyone is still talking about what fun Jim made it. he is a delightful guy, very easy to communicate with, efficient, fun, calm, smiley and kind - what more could you want?!

Brilliant show!

Jim provided top class magic to guests at a birthday party and kept adults and children entertained and enthralled by his tricks and professionalism. He even stayed extra time to make sure he was able to get around all of the tables and chat to the guests. He certainly added that extra special touch to the occasion. i would not hesitate in recommending Jim to others. Thanks for the magic!!!

Great - Jim is a great performer

The 11-12 kids (8-10yr old) were amazed by Jims instant closeup magic and he captured his audience appropriately and completely in the breaks inbetween their recording session. Good magic and lots of 'no-way' 'wow' and stunned silent reactions. Well dome Jim thanks alot
