The Royal Melbourne Show

How wonderful! An entertainer who is more concerned with the needs and objectives of the client than maintaining his own ‘artistic licence’. Tim’s performance and skill as an MC dovetailed perfectly with what our function was all about.

The group were absolutely impressed and totally spellbound for the entire performance. I have spoken to most of the participants since the event and they are still talking about the illusions. The combination of the strolling magic during the pre-dinner drinks and the performance later worked extremely well from an organiser’s perspective. Your presentation was thoroughly professional, entertaining and in many ways absolutely unbelievable.

Nicolette and I can’t thank you enough for yesterday. Brilliant doesn’t even start to describe how we felt about you coming to help celebrate Nicolette’s 40th. It will certainly be an event that won’t be forgotten easily!
Nicolette & Brett Aisen
 
The soda can restoration was drop-dead magic. Rooms full of jaded magicians were exclaiming “NO!” and “NO WAY!” During the Saturday evening show, the row behind me made a comment (they were magicians) during the soda can restoration: “The man’s a personal friend of Satan…” and it was meant as the highest compliment. I’m sure it would delight Tim.
International Battle of Magicians, USA
 
Thank you for contributing to the huge success of the 71st annual Columbus Magifest. Your fantastic close-up performances, your lecture, and your special masterclass all contributed to making this one of our best-ever Magifests. I would recommend you to anyone who would call to consider your performance. That recommendation includes other magic conventions and other performing venues. You did an outstanding job, were very easy to work with, and you have that special professional touch that pays attention to every detail. Again, thank you for the professional manner by which you conduct yourself and your stellar magical presentations.

On behalf of the entire National Council of The Society of American Magicians and the 700+ attendees of our recent international convention, I wish to thankyou for sharing your entertaining skills with us. Your lecture was practical, informative and very entertaining. Your close-up performance was one of the best we’ve ever seen. And, your stage work on our Saturday gala was truly hilarious. You are a bonafide “triple threat” and I am so pleased that we had you involved in so much of our four day event. If any other producer or convention planner is in need of an act that can help make their event the “best ever”, they need to call Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster. If they need a glowing report on your fantastic talents, they need to call me.
