Quotes 2014

“Thank you for the magic show for Aurora- she was so delighted! You are an amazing, creative, compassionate person and performer. I know you are loved by so many people, and so many have been touched by your kindness, your humour, your generosity, and your magic. By magic, I don’t mean the illusions and tricks, though I know you have entertained thousands over the years. I mean that special something you bring to a room just by being you. You can’t learn or practise it- it’s just a gift some people have. We’re lucky to have seen you perform, so thank you for everything. Oh, and for your silliness and exuberance, too!”
-Tara Wittchen and Jon Hutt, Truro, NS (December 2014)

“I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful show today at Asia’s fifth bday.

I was the ‘only’ parent on the floor with my ‘nervous/shy’ daughter (only in public – she doesn’t stop chatting at home) and you were so inclusive. You spoke to her and let her hold your magic wand from her spot on the floor and she had the time of her life! She has been talking about the silly Mr J aka Mr Meatball all day and night. She loved the talking drawing I too, had so much fun and laughed like I haven’t in a long time.

You are a very talented person who has a wonderful way with children and adults alike. Best of luck on Dragons Den! They would be silly not to choose to help you. You are so passionate and professional and so MUCH FUN! Great crowd control – I could go on and on . But I was so touched that you were able to remember names and include all of the children.

Awesome job! Keep up the Fantastic work!”

So thanks again for making the boys birthday extra special, or should I say “magical.” 🙂

“Becky’s 9th birthday party went off with a band. All the kids enjoyed themselves every much and most of all so did Becky. We have thrown her a birthday party every year and told her this year will most likely be her last until her sweet 16 and she could have and do what ever she wanted. Well long story short … she said she wanted you to do her birthday. This will be one birthday Becky will never forget for the rest of her life and you made that possible. You were also a great hit with the adults. My parents will talk about it for some time. My wife had to pick them up in the valley before the show and I took them home after the show. They have never experienced anything like your show before and mom talked about it all the way home. Here are some photos that you can use for your website if you wish. Great job and we will tell everyone we know about The Amazing Mister J.”

He is VERY excited about you coming for his birthday party in May and keeps asking me everyday “How many more sleeps until my birthday”? and “Mister J will be there right?” Just thought I’d share that with you! And BTW, my husband and I really enjoyed your show too – that was the first time I had seen you at a show – fantastic!!”
– Leigh McKeigan, Truro (January 2011)

“I wanted to say a huge thank you for the excellent entertainment at my son’s birthday party yesterday. I could not imagine how you were going to keep the full attention of 24 kids from 3 to 6 for 75 minutes and I will admit that I was somewhat skeptical…..not only did you do this, but you also captured the attention of all of the adults as well!!! You were incredible, and the children will never forget your show. I had comments from many parents, and my children are still talking about you non stop this morning! I will definitely have you back again, and please feel free to post this on your testimonial site, it would be my pleasure to help promote your show.”
– Dr. Lesley Steele, Cow Bay NS (January 2011)

Best of all Roughan LOVED every second of it! Thanks again!
– Liana Gaetz, Porter’s Lake (April 2010)

I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for putting on a great show for Brady’s 6th birthday. You have a great talent and energy and I was amazed at how easily you were able to draw the children into the performance. I was most impressed by how you referred to all the children by name from very early on in the show. Well done! When one of the parents was leaving with their son, I overheard him tell his mother “You should have seen the magic show mom, it was so much fun!” I guess that says it all. For any parent considering Mister J’s Magic as a birthday party option, I can honestly say that it by far surpasses the other options out there for kids entertainment. The laughs and giggles from the children make it worth every last penny! Thanks again!
– Bev Jones, Eastern Passage (April 2010)
