“Your brand of entertainment fit perfectly with the audience we had at our event, that ranged from people aged 75 to early 20’s, from professionals to laborers, male and female alike. Watching the room as you did your comedy I noticed many tears of laughter, although it was hard to tell as I was laughing so hard myself. As for the Magic end of the evening, I shake my head in memorization as I, as well the audience could not figure out how things were done. Your escape from the shackles and chains at the end was a great closer.”
