Evan was AMAZING! I was somewhat apprehensive to book him for my son's 9th birthday as it appeared that a number of the reviews were for younger kiddos but I am so glad that I did. His show was entertaining, fun, and commanded the attention of 15 Nine year old boys that were taking a break from playing football to sit down and watch the show -- impressive. My younger daughter (5) was spellbound as well! Evan did a great job of engaging all of the kiddos (and adults!) through active participation in the show. Evan was intentional about making the birthday boy the star of the show and, needless to say, my birthday boy and his very active buddies, were thrilled! A few of the comments that I overheard from the boys after the show were: "That was so AWESOME!", "Epic!", and of course, "HOW did he do that?". Additionally, he was a joy to work with -- very flexible and professional.

We asked Evan to perform at our son's 5th birthday party at our home on Queen Anne. The delight and laughter made it well-worth the expense. He left us scratching our heads in awe of his magic. The group of 5 year-olds (and parents) was engaged for the entire 45 minutes, and Evan made sure each child assisted with a magic trick. Evan's talent, humor, creativity and professionalism are first-rate! From the moment we emailed him to find out about the possibility of booking him, he was quick to respond and professional. He showed up on time and was enthusiastically ready to perform! He created a GREAT memory for our family and friends. I highly recommend Evan Reynolds!

Evan is professional and friendly, mellow and exciting, all at once. I attended a show he performed at our local elementary school. I was impressed with how at-home he made the whole scene feel, yet how bedazzled he left everyone, including the adults, with some of his tricks. From slapstick-type comedy for the kids, to true show-stoppers for the adults, Evan's show was family-friendly all around. Highly recommended!

We hired Evan to perform for our son's 5th birthday party at a park in West Seattle. I found him by Googling, so I was a bit unsure what we were in for... and we deliberated for a while because of the expense, but when I compared it to what we'd spend on a bouncy house or a kids' museum, it seemed reasonable. And Evan seemed very professional and responsive from the first time I contacted him. He wanted to know about our son and what kinds of things he likes, plus our other son, so he could involve them in the show. He turned out to be wonderful. The kids LOVED it. I was wondering whether the show might be too long for them, but he held their attention from beginning to end, and because he has kids himself, he knows how to tailor the show to their level. It was a delight to watch them surprised by each trick. And he used both of our sons as assistants, as well as some of our son's friends. They all got a kick out of that. And the parents enjoyed it too - one mom wrote me afterward "best bday party ever." It was way more special than going to yet another bouncy house! I highly recommend Evan - you won't be disappointed!

We paid for some VIP seats at the Tin Theatre in Burien for my 5yo boy and I was not really knowing what to expect. We showed up to a sold out theatre and were the last of the VIP seats to arrive. Evan used my son's first name and said, "it's nice to meet you" and did a little one-on-one magic with him before the show which added such an uncommon personal touch and then used him in a trick during the show. It made his year!! The VIP seats were totally worth it and I have to admit several of the tricks as an adult I was sitting there watching his every move and I still couldn't figure out. Guess that's why it's magic!! Top notch all the way around.

Our elementary school's PTSO hired Evan Reynolds to perform magic shows during our school's Fall Festival. What an outstanding job! We had over 100 kids in two shows that afternoon. Both the children and parents were awed by the shows. Everyone walked away smiling and laughing. Evan did an awesome job of entertaining both the young children and older children in the audience as well (and tying great balloon animals in between shows.) Thanks, Evan Reynolds, for helping make our Fall Festival a huge success! We look forward to inviting you back each year.

Evan did an amazing job for our sons 6th birthday. It was star wars themed so we did Evans stormtrooper magician show. He was very professional and organized. Came an hour early to set up. Amazed the kids and adults!! We took pictures with him afterwards. He had a great backdrop too! They talked about the party all next week at school. I would recommend him for your party!!

We got to see Evan's Star Wars-themed magic show and it was a great time. He kept the kid's attentions and still made it fun and funny for the adults. A week later and the kids are still talking about his show. Highly recommended!

I got to see Evan perform at a theater show geared to family and kids. He ended up with about 30 little kids on the floor in front of him and about 20 more adults in the audience. The kids were giggling until they were rolling. They were shouting and interacting and having a blast of a time. And Evan was still able to keep them under control. If a stray kid got too excited, he could still bring them back in while keeping the other kids going. Best of all, he had the adults' full attention. And would let the parents know when it was time to take a shot of their little one doing a trick. Not all childrens' acts actually like children. Evan does it with spades. (And he's also great with the adult kids, as well.)

We had Evan Reynolds perform a Star Wars themed magic show for our son's 6th birthday party. Evan not only had all 18 boys (ages 6 and 7) completely captivated but also all of the adults in attendance. In addition the children all got a chance at one point to participate in the show. My son said that he had the best birthday ever and I am still hearing great comments from parents of children that attended. I highly recommend Evan for kids birthday parties. In addition to a wonderful show he was very personable and performed a magic trick for my 6 and 3 year old within minutes of entering my house. 5 stars Evan Reynolds.

I saw Evan perform at the Academy Theater for their "Almost Outside the Box" show. He was easily my favorite. Of all of them, he clearly adapted to his audience, engaged, and impressed. I'll level with you, I was not impressed with his website. But his show in person is top notch. If you're wanting a magician here in Atlanta, Evan is your man.

My son is obsessed with Star Wars. For his 4th birthday we decided to have a Star Wars themed party and hired Evan. My son can not stop talking about Evan and how much fun he had. Evan made the party and guests kept commenting on this being the best birthday party. Evan is great with children and very patient. Don't think about it...hire him before he books up!
