Amazing James enthralled 20 children at my 5 year old's party yesterday. They all had a great time and there are some fantastic photos of laughter, surprise and amazement. I think they'll be talking about it for a while. James travelled through to Edinburgh and was very helpful and friendly to deal with. Would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thanks again James.

Amazing James did a party for my son's 8th birthday party today. His tricks entertained young and old alike and it was a brilliant fun! The boys even leaned buddy tricks of their own, and all got an assortment of bits and pieces to take away so they could practise the tricks. Excellent value for money, and I wouldn't hesitate to use James again.

Thanks Caroline,

It was a pleasure to entertain Charlie and his friends I'm sure with the magic DVD & magic set you will see more tricks over the next few weeks than you have seen in your life so far :) Once again thanks for choosing me over all others.

We hired James for my nephews birthday party and he was brilliant. He was great with the kids and they absolutely loved him, took time with everyone and made them feel special. His magic was pretty impressive too, it was different from the boring stuff you see all the time and had the kids fixated. We definitely got value for money and I will be getting him back for our nieces birthday in a few months. Would def recommend!

We hired Amazing James for our daughter Alexia's 5th birthday party. It was very easy to book him and he is very reasonably priced. we booked him for the whole 2 hours as it was our first party and we were not sure what to do. James was AMAZING! He was very helpful and made it so easy for us! He was there early and even helped us to set everything up. Kids and grown ups absolutely loved him! And my daughter still watches his DVD! 
I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants easy, worry free birthday party. And i will use him again in the future!

I am in charge of organising events at Gambado Glasgow - the family entertainment centre located at Soat at Intu Braehead. Our latest event involved a 45 minute magic show from The Amazing James and I couldn't have been more impressed with his service! I must admit, I was a little unsure whether or not the children would sit for 45 minutes but her kept them all entertained the entire time! His magic was both impressive and funny, his interaction with our customers - both adults and children - was brilliant and everyone had a great time! 
Not only this but he is incredibly professional, calling me on the morning of the event to confirm details, arriving on time and afterwards, even gave a couple of tips to my party hosts on how they can improve their skills!
Now that I have a reliable magician, I am sure I will be using him again for future events and would certainly advise anyone who is looking for someone with James' wide range of skills and talents to do the same!
Thank you James! :)

Amazing James says:

Thank's for the kind words Lulu :) It was my pleasure to entertain you all today, I always give my clients a call either the night before or in the morning just to put your mind at ease. I know how stressful organising a child's party can be without worrying about the entertainment. It was great to meet you and entertain the girls Mia was quite a character and got really involved in the show I think she made me laugh more than I made her beating me up with my own wand lol.

We had James for our children's Christmas party. There were over 50 children (aged 0-18), their mum's and member's of staff. Many or our clients don't speak English and some of the children have different disabilities and/or behavioral challenges. We have this party every year and usually it is utter cautious and an incredibly stressful event. However this year things were very different and this was in a huge part down to James. From the moment he began he had all the children and pretty much everyone else totally captivated. He was engaging, funny and incredibly professional. He was flexible to our needs and was able to tailor his show to various unexpected events that arose. Everyone who attended our party said it was the best year so far and asked if we could have James back next year. Amazing James definitely deserves his name! I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed, we would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Thanks Ashley,
I was delighted to attend your Christmas party, I have to say I really enjoyed performing for everyone and from so many parts of the world it was quite an amazing experience. I think Santa enjoyed meeting everyone too;)

Not disappointed! I have to say I had not saw James before anywhere so wasn't sure what to expect! He definitely knows what he is doing and how to keep the kids under control while having lots and lots of fun! Did lots of games with his own twists, Magic show was big hit too, with the kids and kept the adults entertained with his mixture of jokes and humour ! I must say when kids are going to parties often its nice to have an entertainer that can provide everything but just a little different! All in all I would most definitely hire James again for any future functions without pause! (Thanks again James for making the party just what I had hoped for!)

Where to start...
AMAZING! He really does live up to his name. A huge amount of talent, skill, energy, fun and modesty too. He had the children and adults in stitches from the moment he started until the minute we were being ushered out the door- no one wanted to leave because he had created such a good atmosphere.
James does EVERYTHING.. Even congas the children to the lunch table so everyone arrives together ( and no one fights over sitting next to the party girl/boy)
James asked if I would like some jokes that the adults would get that would go over the children's heads... I said yes and he judged the level/audience perfectly.
I don't doubt that Jsmes will recieve bookings from bundles of parents who chose to sit inside and watch rather than sit outside in the sun.

Thank you so much James. BEST PARTY ENTERTAINER IN GLASGOW!

Amazing James was truly amazing. My 5year old was like a little jumping bean he was so happy and the belly laughs were tremendous. He kept the kids and the adults amused and a great day was had by all and friends were asking for his number. He is such a nice guy, very professional and was brilliant at keeping in touch with everything. Thanks again for a brilliant day. Dx

Hi Jenni,
What can I say but wow! that was an amazing review and it means the world to me that everyone enjoyed it especially Jake. I have to say he is a smashing boy and was a total pleasure to entertain. I think I will need to watch out for him stealing my job in the years to come he was so funny. I really do hope he enjoys the Magic DVD and make sure Sean does not steal his magic set lol Thanks again and keep in touch I would love to hear how Jake is getting on :)

Amazing James is exactly that...AMAZING!!! We booked him for our kids birthday party yesterday and we were not disappointed. There were over 40 kids aged from 3 upwards and he managed to keep them all amused for 2 hours!! The games had adults in stitches, his jokes were hilarious and his magic was superb! Overall he was awesome! I would definitely recommend him and for anyone who may be put off by price- he is worth every penny! I believe you would struggle to get something similar for less! Some parents commented that it was the best party they have been to by a country mile and I have to agree! The fact that he is also a lovely guy is a bonus! If you want something different then give James a call! Thanks again for making the kids day so special!

James K(35)

Amazing James says:

That was stunning review thank you so much for that Paula. Your kids were great on the day. Very well behaved and really made me laugh. You can tell they are very close as the little guy was at his big sisters side most of the day, Its really nice to see that :) I'm delighted the adults enjoyed the day too, I try to inject some adult humor when possible as I can imagine watching a kids entertainer for two hours would horrify most mums & dads. Once again thanks for your kind words and if I can ever do anything for you in the future let me know. I took away that great tip for fast birthday cake making that was a gem :)

Amazing James came along tonight and did his Magic Show for the children in Deans This is all part of our Gala week in preperation for our Gala Day this Saturday. James did an amazing job keeping approx 50 - 60 children entertained for an hour. We've been using Amazing James for quite a few years now, and wouldn't think twice about recommending him to anyone else. My daughter, Jade, has been part of this for years, and even at 12 she still comes along and helps out with the youngsters and gets to be James' assistant. The kids love him, the adults love him, and he's just an all round family entertainer. Thanks as always James and look forward to seeing you next year. Thank you once again Angela

I hired Amazing James for my daughters communion party after I read all the great comments that he had received on net mums. I have to say all the feedback was spot on! My daughter and all the kids who where there were captivated from the moment James arrived and started making balloon hats to 2 hours later when the magic show came to a close. It was a fantastic day and the entertainment made it even better. Many thanks James, from Jackie and Graham

James came for a couple of hours to my sons First Communion on 18th May. The word 'amazing' seems inadequate to describe the best 2 hours me and my family have spent in a long time. The kids had an absolute ball and the adults are still talking about the show James put on. There was magic, comedy, kids games, adults games balloon animals - the list goes on. Even although it was late in the evening and the 3rd event James had attended that day his energy was infectious and he was in no rush to leave us. It's pretty obvious he genuinely loves his work! If you are looking to make a special occasion extra special and truly memorable I would highly recommend having the Amazing James come along to take care of that for you.

On Sunday 11th may my son made his communion and we hired the best entertainer we have ever seen Amazing James. Anyone who is looking for an entertainer for good quality then look no further than James he has gave us a day to remember one we will never forget. He entertained the kids and the adults for 6 hours close up magic, magic show, party games, music, ballon tricks. He also had a photographer who took over 900 photos to capture the day. Thank you so much Amazing James we cannot thank you enough the kids and adults can't stop talking about the fun they had on Sunday.

Amazing James was absolutely fantastic at our sons 6th birthday april'14. When I arrived half hour early to the hall he was already there setting up and explained everything he was going to do, he really made me feel at ease which was unusual as I'm usually running about crazy orginising things and stressing out. I was really impressed how kept the children entertained for 2hours, the games to start with was great idea as kids turned up bit later which ment they could join in on the fun and hadn't missed the magic show. Even the adults had great time bursting with laughter with his jokes and involving us in his act. Was great see my son and his friends smiling and having so much fun and the balloons were also a great hit as he made one for every child (26). I have a great response from everyone, some people could not believe the party was finished cause we had so much fun time went past so fast, which makes it so much better that it was my sons party and he can't stop talking about or showing us tricks from his DVD. I would recommend Amazing James if you wanting fun, stress free and family atmosphere, he will really make your child's day!!! Thank you Amazing James I will deffinitely be booking you again in the future

Sandra B(459) says:

We booked Amazing James for two of our Junior Youth Clubs, and he was certainly amazing! He made everyone a balloon hat (even the staff), or a sword or a dog, then he stunned us all with his close up magic tricks. The kids took to him right away and he was absolutely brilliant with them...even the cheeky ones lol. James is a funny and very talented guy who I would recommend to anyone. The kids were all talking about his tricks long after he'd left. We're hoping to see him again soon. Thanks James.

Amazing James

James K(35)

Amazing James says:

Thanks Sandra, it was a pleasure entertaining you all :) I would love to come back sometime as I really think the kids would love the Magic workshop. I think we could have a few of those cheeky chappies on TV a few years from now doing their own magic.

For a brilliant, hassle free kids party you have to hire James. We were lucky enough to have James for our 7 yr olds birthday party and it couldn't have gone any better. The kids had a brilliant time and I was so happy to see my quiet wee boy laughing his head off and really joining in. James, your really good at what you do. Thanks again for a great day, Tracey, Peter and Campbell Duffy

Hi I booked The Complete Party for my children's party on 2/2/14- James was really helpful before the party started to give us ideas to help make the party run smoothly and he kept approximately 45 children ( age range 3-9) laughing from start to finish. I have never seen so many excited children watch a magic show. The party games at the start were really fun and a good way of warming up the party. My son and daughter have watched The Amazing James DVD that he gave them and they have been practising magic tricks-my husband and I have been entertained on a nightly basis since the party. Watch out James you may have competition in a few years time!!!!! You truly were AMAZING! Would highly recommend. Hassle free party entertainment and worth every penny!

Ruth D(85) says:

My son went to his friend's fourth birthday party (Feb 08) and James was the entertainer. I was very impressed - he had the children enthralled for a full 45 minutes with an excellent mixture of slapstick 'messing it up' and real tricks. Both children and adults laughed a lot and it was a pleasure to watch the childrens' faces. He was extremely approachable and friendly to adults and children alike. The balloon sword which my son got at the end was a highlight for him. My son really enjoyed the show and so did I!

 

Our 70s themed party was without doubt, the best we have ever been to and it was down to the top level of entertainment provided by James and his team. Not only was it first class but done with care and attention. 80 people had the most memorable night and will be talking about it for years to come! 

Magic, games, and amazing music that suited everyone. 
Top equipment and top show. Can't recommend James more and will not bother looking elsewhere for our next function.
brilliant!!!!! 5 stars. Dash and Aileen. Irvine.

Hi James,

Thank you very much for your superb magic show for our daughter's sixth birthday party. You managed to keep every one of the 42 kids entertained for 45 minutes on the trot, which is truly amazing!
Afterwards when my daughter was asked her favourite bit of the party, she answered "the magician". 
Our four year old son said you are "a funny guy"!
Thanks for fitting us into your busy schedule on the day and turning up in good time.
We have handed your cards out at our son's nursery and given you our full endorsement.
Best Regards.
Arthur
