We were pleased with the Gigmaster experience. Bob was exactly as we expected. His stage act was a good combination of magic and humor. His walk-around magic was perfect for our event. He made sure to get around to everyone. He was personable, respectful and entertaining.

Bob Filene delivered a delightful performance of his "Magic for Smart People" show at our senior center on July 29 and those who attended are still smiling and wondering "how did he do that?"! Bob is very easy to work with -- responsive, clear about his setup requirements and well prepared. He showed up early as promised with his equipment and props. The audience of more than 60 participants was engaged from the first minute to the very last. The laughter and applause overflowed into our lobby throughout the show. I would heartily recommend Bob.

Bob is an amazing magician and very friendly performer! His illusions were exciting and varied from rope tricks to exciting mentalist tricks. Not only is he a talented magician, he is also a comedian. His jokes had the crowd in stitches. I hope to hire him for another birthday party, perhaps even my 29th birthday.

Bob was perfect for my event! His show "Magic for Smart People" was great for the MIT audience at the formal event. He was very easy to work with and customized his performance to meet our time and venue needs. He ended doing about a 30 minute stage show and then walked around the audience and performed additional tricks for groups of 2-3 people up close. The performance was a huge hit, and Bob even sent us a thank you card afterwards :) Highly recommended.
The SOMERVILLE NEWS wrote: "Self proclaimed as "Magic For Smart People," the performance did not disappoint. The entire audience was baffled by Bob's sleight of hand, and his witty jokes in between kept even the most skeptical viewers entertained. . . . This sometimes psychic, always entertaining trickster clearly knows his craft and how to use it to the audience's delight."
Watching Bob perform his magic brought me back to being a kid again. I was not only entertained with Bob's presentation but I was brought to a place were I believed in the impossible again. Grandparents as well as children are entertained and captivated with Bob's magic and personal style. Ginny Peck, N. Woodstock, NH.
Bob's magic tricks just keep getting better - not that I could ever figure them out, but his latest "think of a card" trick just blew my socks off – not to mention everyone else in the room. Christine Stewart, Boston, MA
Spellbinding! And, not just for kids. He had about 40 of us oldsters with our mouths agape. Everyone wanted to see more of his magic.
