"Was a pleasure to work with!"

Did a fun “Happy Noon Year” magic show program at Cedarbrae Library on December 31st. We wrapped up the show just in time to do a 12 noon countdown with the kids followed by snacks the librarian had prepared.

This lovely review was posted to my Google business listing shortly after the new year:


I hired him for a family program (over 100 people in attendance). While the kids and parents were giggling and enjoying themselves, my colleagues and I were rolling on the floor laughing at his jokes. He combines magic and comedy perfectly. I would hire him again! Beforehand, he was very considerate and asked if it would be appropriate to do a Christmas joke, did we want him to touch on this holiday or not, etc. Was a pleasure to work with!”

OWoW Festival summary

During the last weekend of October I had the pleasure of participating in the Ontario Week of Wonder festival.
The organizer of the fest, Ryan Joyce, has written up a thorough summary to tie things off and yours truly, along with my excellent performing partner for the weekend, Peter Mennie, get a nice mention near the bottom of the scroll.
But, if you’re sharp eyed, you might see me in a photo on stage with a buncha munchkins about a quarter way down the scroll!

A little ‘grand’ theatre…!

Most of my shows are in private homes, rental halls, school gyms, rec centres or library program rooms.

Once in a while something extra fun comes along such as this past weekend when I was part of the family matinee magic shows at the Ontario Week of Wonder festival in Fergus, Ontario.

The Fergus Grand Theatre is a sweet little room on the main drag in Fergus. Seats about 250 and was about 75% full for our OWoW shows.

If you’re ever in the neighbourhood to see a show the beautiful Elora Gorge conservation area is just down the road. There are some lovely restaurant options near the theatre too.

Cool Public Shows for the Family

I’m pleased to be a part of the Ontario Week of Wonder (OWOW!) being held in beautiful Fergus Ontario at the end of October.

There will be a Canadian Stars of Magic Show on Friday Night, Oct 25th, and an International Stars Show on Saturday night, Oct 26th.


Two of the Friday evening performers, Carisa Hendrix and Nicholas Wallace, have appeared on Penn & Teller’s Fool Us.

Nick also appeared on America’s Got Talent.


On Thursday evening, Oct 24th, world travelling (and Fergus resident) entertainer Ryan Joyce will be performing his comedy hypnosis show.

As part of OWOW there will also be other events in local restaurants and some Halloween related shenanigans as well.

Oh!, and it’s a, cough, cough, big Oh! on Saturday (26th) and Sunday (27th) afternoon at 2:00 pm I, Magical Mr. Oh! (see what I did there…?) along with another fine family performer, Peter Mennie, will be presenting a family friendly show for the kids.
(I’d link to my own website but, you know, if you’re reading this you’re on it so…!)

There’s something for everyone!
