I have been working with magicians in Scotland for over 30 years and this show is easily one of the very best I have ever seen. This talented young man is definitely one to watch. Incredible skill and talent.

My husband and I can't stop talking about the brain puzzling magic shown to us literally right in front of our eyes! Billy Reid stands out as THE closest we have ever been to such a mesmerising, unforgettable magician.
A wonderful story teller and lovely, friendly guy. I'm sure he doesn't need a magic wand to cast a spell over any audience!
Watch closely and if you're able to go one of his shows, you really should not miss witnessing the most incredible twists and turns of Billy's magic!

My fiancé and I went to see Billy perform his new magic show in the Southside of Glasgow. I’ve seen Billy perform in a few places over the years and he keeps getting better! Incredible skill and he’s great at keeping the audience engaged with his storytelling.

I’d highly recommend you make it along to this show before he moves on to bigger and less intimate venues!!

We went to see Billy’s Watch Closely show at the Bungo after hearing such good things and it did not disappoint! It was absolutely amazing and completely mind boggling, everything you want from a magic show. Billy was so friendly and entertaining, It had great audience participation, including participation from me and that particular trick blew me away! Such a great way to spend an evening - would recommend to everyone!

Wonderful! Billy is in a league of his own. Tricks are fantastic and he constructs great stories/tales around them. Our party had an amazing time and can’t wait to go back. Strongly recommended to any and everyone. Thanks for a great night Billy!

This is not the first time I have seen this show, and it certainly won't be the last. Billy is a phenomenal magician and story teller. You get swept up in his story as he shares personal memories about his family and relates them to his magic.

He makes you believe that the impossible is made possible in his show, he includes the audience in his magic and leaves spectators with their mouths open, stunned at what has just happened, in their own hands.

Such a fair price for an evening of wonder which is perfect for all, couples, work friends, families.

Go on, go see this show, and get a bit of wonder put back in your life. Let Billy Reid help you believe in magic again.
