Ivan performed at my boyfriends surprise 40th birthday party and he was the highlight of the night!! From start to finish he was responsive, extremely easy to communicate with, and 100% professional. We were very last minute and Ivan was totally accommodating. Ivan engaged every guest with walk-around tricks and a special show. A great night was had by all - it was filled with lots of laughs, magic tricks, illusions, and memories and experiences that will last a lifetime. Great audience participation to include the crowd. Thanks so much for the wonderful highlight video as well!! If you want to go the extra mile for entertainment - hire Ivan! You will not be disappointed. 5 stars - highly recommended!!!
