All I can say is wow, amazing, naturally funny and very, very gifted. Iain blew the audience away with his magic! I stood right there next to him and I simply couldn't work out how he did the things he did. My guests loved him and can't stop talking about him! Thank you so much for attending our party Iain and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
