"I thought the show was the most professionally produced Magic Show I have ever seen at an Australian Convention.
Congratulations on your skill and effort in linking it together. "  

Gerald Taylor (Former owner of Bernard's and Magic Historian)

"OMG! What a show! I'm still reeling from the effects of Friday night. It was magnificent. Congratulations to absolutely everyone involved - and especially to you. Whew!!!!"  

Frank van Straten (Theatre Historian)

"Thanks again for a great night of entertainment and magic. I have been telling everyone I have spoken to since about it.
I wish there were more shows like that in Melbourne. My congratulations"   

 Jack Strom (Television & Event Producer)

"Saturday night was just superb and Ross Skiffington (plus associates) was definitely a highlight." 

Jack Levi (Elliott Goblet)

"In my opinion, the public show was by far the best I have ever seen. Fabulous magical entertainment with comedy and professional dancing girls. The reaction of non magicians and young families around me showed they loved every minute of it! "

John Day

"Great shows, super magic and Paul Martel is the best stand-up comic I've seen for years."

Michael Woolfe (Editor & Publisher of MAGICANA)

"It was a pleasure to be at your convention. SHOOT and I had a great time over there. It was one of the best conventions that I've ever been to."

Ai Nakamura

"It was terrific to see the show last Saturday. You received a terrific response when you appeared and talked to the mob beyond the foot lights. The 5 junior magician chinese rings and the opening were highly innovative. LOVED THEM BOTH. The lighting was superb and the little guy who did the floating coat thang and shadows was sensational"

Andrew Gill (Magician and Event Producer)

l have been meaning to send a quick word to let you know how wonderful l thought the extravaganza of magic was the other week.  We still refer back to that mesmerizing evening. My children were just raving on and on about all the different types of acts that were presented throughout the evening. To your spectacular professional magical crew, you are the truly ultimate finished product, perfection at its best .
