What people say about my show

  •   We hired John for our dental office open house. He entertained over 300 guests of all ages with close up magic and a show as well! Everyone I spoke to said he was very personable and funny. Would definitely hire again!

  •   John Gardenier recently entertained a group of about 50 people at a "Going Away to College" party by special request from my son, Alex Espinoza!  John was awesome to say the least!  His material was entertaining for the different age ranges at the party.  He engages the audience which adds to the fun!  John is also somewhat of a comedian which is refreshing!  My son is still trying to figure out some of his tricks, LOL!  We will definitely keep him in mind for future parties!

  •   First off I just want to say what an awesome experience, my daughter has been talking about it all week, and last week was her party-5/20/17. I can't believe how much her face lit up when John said her favorite line"prepare to be amazed" she just can't stop talking about it:)..... the simple things sometimes are the best things! And of course this has just sparked a new era of the magician in our house! She has watched the movies he gave her with her own personal magic, on repeat for 5 days, she keeps showing me how she is improving and it's just simple fun, and it's lasted longer than her birthday which makes it all the more magical!
    Now for the magic show itself I am 35 yrs old and watch tons of magic shows and even watch the magic revealed and I have to say I was thoroughly entertained! He kept us laughing and engaged in all aspects of his show! And all the parents have asked for his info and have just been asking how do I think he did this or that! Lmao! I don't know!!!! But it was fun! And also I do love that you are a thoughtful magician in making sure certain things are guaranteed to be here(care package), those last minute things are a doozy!
    Thanks again for making it as magical as I had imagined, it's one of those things where it leaves a lasting impression and believe me it's lasting:)!!!
    Ps, thanks for making that balloon last for a while also she is watching it daily for it to deflate, and it's holding up, but she is excited for the money it's gonna bring:).... thanks also for the shark, sorry we were just messing, didn't think it was gonna happen but way to put it in my friends face! He was trying to stump you, didn't work! Had to tell him that takes the fun out of it, trying to be complicated! But either way very professional the way you handled everything and made it flow smoothly!

  •   I was referred to John by another performer, and he performed at my son's 13th birthday. He entertained all who were there, adults and kids. We were still talking about his balloon animal trick. We were very impressed and entertained. He also took the time to teach my son a trick and to give the rest of the kids some tricks. Thank you so much John!

  •   Wow, what a fine entertainer and skilled magician. In this age of special-effects and digital hocus-pocus, witnessing magic in a delightfully analog (real life) setting is nothing less than astonishing. John is a nice guy who nails it every time, and I've had the privilege of seeing him at his best in both private and stage venues at Gerry Griffin's Magic review. Treat yourself soon and often, it's worth it.

  •   We hired John for my daughters 8 year old party and he was amazing!!!  He entertained 30+ kids (ages 2-9) and 20+ adults (ages 30-70) with his magic tricks. He involved the kids in his tricks, had the whole crowd laughing at his jokes and mesmerized with his tricks. He then stayed afterwards to make a balloon animal for each kid!!  He also provided  each kid with a party favor to bring home. Many adults came up to ask where I found him and wanted to book them for their future events.  He was definitely the highlight of the party!!!!

    He was very professional and showed up early enough to make sure he had enough time to set up for the show.

    Thanks, John for making my 8 year old daughters birthday so memorable!!

  •   This show was spectacular! He kept a group of 30+ kids ages 6 and under entertained with magic and balloons for an hour. He went over and above to make sure everyone went home with their personal balloon!

  •   John is a wonderful entertainer who puts on a great show and makes sure the crowd is not only engaged but also actively involved in the show. I would recommend him to anyone who needed entertainment for all age groups.
