Customer Testimonials

Your unique and dignified approach touched me in a way that most magicians don't.
The near macabre but lovely delivery of illusion you employ is almost Tim Burton-esque on the surface, but simultaneously filled with so much heart that all of the departed classically trained magicians surely must be looking over your shoulder each time you extract a sense of wonder in the wry smiles of your audience.

Thank you, Vick, for truly making my day special and bringing a true sense of wonder alive again in me.

He captivated the audience immediately! A great personality and interacted with the residents wonderfully! Would have him back and recommend to others. Thanks Vick you made it an extra special day for our residents and families!!!!

I could not have asked for a better performer for our fundraiser. Vick was simply outstanding - so good that we've already decided to have him back again next year. He is incredibly patient, amazingly talented, and fantastically skilled at entertaining children and adults simultaneously.
Thanks, Vick, for a GREAT time!

From Our Website

Enter a world where nothing is impossible and the seemingly ordinary becomes the incredible. Vick went out of his way to learn about our company and about our products. He (Vick) was a joy to work with and I would recommend him for any company looking to add a different element to their trade show booth. Illusions by Vick asks questions about the event, the organization and/or guest of honor to personalize the performance. The performance features a charming mix of creative wonders including amazing, beautiful, fun, and unusual magical effects acquired through a journey of 19 years.
