John was sooo entertaining!!!! We had 50 guests for a 30th Birthday party and he had us laughing and amazed by his magic. John used live animals in his performance and knew how to get the attention of his adult audience with comedy. Our guests loved the rhyming story he told while doing his card trick with the Ace, King, Queen and Jack. He chose willing guests to help him perform his tricks. John was very accommodating when we had to start a bit later than originally decided. He uses a backdrop and props, so make sure you have the small space required. We are going to hire John for an 8th grade graduation party this summer!! Great entertainment for any age!

John performed for a family group of 50 people, aged 2 years to 60+. His performance enthralled all of them. I think that the use of live animals was an added bonus- not expected in a home setting. The entire performance was very professional, lively and entertaining. My guests are still wondering, "How did he do that!!" would highly recommend his act

The John Measner Magic Show was a memorable show. John kept the audience intrigued and delighted. The audience members were eager to participate in his illusions. He catered to our 1900s vintage theme through his attire and music. He also used our customized playing cards for the sleight-of-hand magic tricks during the cocktail hour. We look forward to hiring his services in the future and will recommend his talents to others.

Mr Measner came out on very short notice and performed his magic show in front of 60 people. He was engaging and had the group guessing for days how he performed certain tricks. The show moved along very quickly and most (if not all of my guests) were sad that it was over. It was a very solid performance and would recommend this performer to all.

This was an internal company meeting and we decided we wanted to do something different than a company dinner. So we had John Measner provide strolling close up magic during the cocktail hour and a one hour magic show after dinner. The close up magician was very entertaining and wowed everyone. The magic show was great. He involved audience members and got lots of laughs (without embarrassing anyone). The animals added a special touch. Many many people told me that this was one of the best events we have had as people could mingle and still have something fun to be engaged in. Thanks so much for a great show.

Great magic show! I'm now the envy of the neighborhood with the parties I throw. Very professional with adults and friendly to the children. Everyone loved the show and have been inquiring on where I found him. Magic was very well done and am still confused on a few of the tricks, actually all the tricks. None of the magic illusions were cheap as I've seen from past magicians. JOhn Measner is the real thing, great job. Everything was fresh, good background music to go with the illusions and great magic overall. Thank you John for a fantastic experience.
