John was an excellent choice for our son's christening reception! The kid's all loved him! To have 20 kids sit spellbound by John's performance for 90 minnutes was truely magical for all the parents as well!! He was so nice and a pleasure to do business with, John- FYI I had at least 5 parents ask for your card for up coming parties....Thanks again! Kelly White

We have hired two magicians from Gigmasters in the past. The first one was pretty good(just OK) and the second one was lousy so we were a little hesitant hiring another one. We just had John Carlson at our Family Picnic/birthday party and I can not tell you how pleased we were. He performed for all the different ages and adults. Today, the day after my party two of my guests called and asked for his phone number. Everyone was amazed at his performance and my sister inlaw was crying she was laughing so hard. John was very professional as he called me and emailed me to reconfirm(setting my mind at ease). I can't say enough...don't hesitate to hire John Carlson!

Arrived on time, set up by himself, entertained the kids as they arrived with balloon sculptures, mesmerized them with the show that included pulling a rabbit from a hat, having a live dove materialize out of paper napkins, using a puppet, and involving the kids. Made them laugh with no potty talk!

This is the 2nd time we had John Carlson. He performed for our daughter's party 3 years ago and he just did a party for our 10 year old son. FANTASTIC! I was amazed how he was able to put on a completely different magic show for the older kids compared to the younger kids who were at my daughters party. He made my son feel extra special! I also wish my friend told me she was getting a magician for her kid's party because I would have recommended John. The other guy did not even show up and her son was so upset. John always gets to the party early and he even calls on the cell phone when he is on the way there. A TRUE professional. Can't wait to see his show again!

John was exactly what our school needed to help promote our fall fundraiser! He was extremely funny and up beat. Not only did the kids enjoy his performance, teachers and staff did also. I had many compliments from a number of people with in our school. I would and will book John again for other upcoming events at our school.

We hired John Carlson for a 40th surprise halloween BD party. He was extremely professional and quite talented. Live animals, audience participation, ventriloquism, personality Plus, clean humor, and on time! The show lasted approximately 1 hr and had everyone, young & old, enthralled. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an all around entertainer that has a wonderful way with people of all ages. I will definitely hire him again in a heart beat. Thanks, John!! Very Happy Customer, Ann from PA

I first spoke with John Carlson about a month or so before my son's 7th birthday party. My first impression of John was professional yet down to earth, which means alot in my family. We are the type of people who enjoy having a good time while taking life with a grain of salt. John Carlson was a PERFECT FIT. He was entertaining for the children as well as the adults. I found it refreshing to see someone actually enjoying what they do for a living. John Carlson is not only a fantastic magician and vantriliquist, but a terrific comedian as well! I would recommend John to all of my friends and family. Thanks to John the party was a hit! Toni Richardson

I WAS SO VERY PLEASED WITH JOHN'S ENTIRE SHOW. HE WAS FUNNY,EXCITING AND FRIENDLY. THE KIDS AND ADULTS HAD A GREAT TIME WATCHING JOHN'S WONDERFUL PERFORMANCE. HE IS BY FAR THE BEST VENTRIOQUEST I HAVE EVER SEEM. I WAS PLEASED THAT HE DID CHEK WITH ME FOR DETAILS AND LOCATION PRIOR TO THE SHOW. THAT WAS VERY REASSURING AND HE WAS ON TIME AND SO GRACIOUS TO STAY AN EXTRA FEW MINUTES TO MAKE SOME BALLOONS FOR THE AUDIENCE. I AM SURE HE WILL GET CALLS TO "DO HIS MAGIC SOON AGAIN" MOST SINCERELY, AND STILL SMILING, ANGELA ALLORA
