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.

I was at the party last night and your act is the best thing I have ever seen. Ever! If it was a toss up between getting Cameron Diaz as a hooker for an hour or your show – I’m not sure what I would go for!

He walked on stage at FISM and did 3 minutes, tearing the place apart. We were in hysterics!” “As soon as I could find him I signed him to come all the way from Australia to do one three minute trick. This you don’t want to miss.

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.

Tim performed some astounding card tricks. Sublimely, totally dumbfounding.
Everybody was so impressed with your exceptional skills. Once again you left everyone in awe!
Tim Ellis is a true professional. He works the room leaving people amazed by his great skill and finesse. There were people wandering around after a meeting with him making comments such as, “How did he do that?”, “Did you SEE that?”, “I watched him so closely, and I still don’t know how he managed it.
Integration of product launch worked very well. Very good feedback from the audiences and the client!
An excellent act, really provided the WOW! factor.
Your performance was outstanding and you certainly captured everyone in the Crown Casino Palladium. You were absolutely fantastic.
Ivanhoe Grammar School
We got fantastic feedback from our guests!
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.
