“Worth seeing twice (or seven times)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I first saw Ivan perform at the Magic Castle and was so entertained, that I made it a point to come back again and again during each of his performances. Despite seeing him about half a dozen times at the Castle, I felt it necessary to pay to see his show and was glad that I did. Since I'm a magician, people often ask me, "Do you know how the tricks are done?" And my answer is, "While I may know how some are done, magicians watch for entertainment purposes." And Ivan tops the chart with entertainment value. Be prepared to feel a childlike sense of wonder while laughing your face off. I look forward to seeing him again.

“A must see!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Top notch show! See Ivan before he goes big time. What a great time. This show has it all, laughs, illusion, tricks and more. Excellent venue. Who doesn't like the Beverly Wilshire. See the show before he gets famous and ticket prices triple!

“"A Class Act!!!!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Ivan's magic tricks are unlike any others I have ever seen!!!! He is a fantastic magician!!!! It is obvious he gets a thrill out of stunning his audience by how much thought, detail, and perfection goes into each and every trick. I have taken several friends to see his show and each one has walked out completely hooked!!!! I highly recommend seeing Ivan's magic, regardless of where his performances are being held.

“What a fun show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This is really one of those unique experiences everyone should try. It's this intimate space at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel so every seat is good. The show is extremely entertaining. The magic is really amazing. I go to the Magic Castle a lot, and have seen other magic shows around town, and Ivan's show is one of the best I've ever seen. We had dinner nearby - there's a bunch of good restaurants. A very memorable evening.
