My wife doesn't like magic shows, so I caught this one with just my son. Tim came out and chatted with the crowd prior to the show and spent time with a number of different people. By making connections with the audience beforehand, it made the show itself even more enjoyable. He has a nice mix of humor and magic... More

My friends and I went to the show based on its trip advisor ratings. At first I was a bit sceptical as there were not many people there. However, the show blew my mind!

Tim is a truly magician that also is an entertainer. He knows how to tie together each element in a story and how to involve the audience (both children, youths and adults). He talks to audience before the show to get familier with each group and uses this konwledge in the show to make it personal. This is a "Must... More

Given the Pier 39 location, I thought this was going to be a tourist trap. But it was lots of fun for both the kids and the parents. I am no expert in magic, but the magician seems very talented, and he is very personable and entertaining. I found all the tricks very convincing and we kept scratching our heads... More

Tim the magician was so friendly and warm to everyone before, during and after the show. When the show... More

Dear Ari: Thank you for your feedback and review. I am truly sorry you felt that the show as not very good, as I strive to create an excellent balance of amazing magic for adults and children, since Pier 39 is such a family destination. If you were expecting a more serious and dramatic show, please bear in mind this... More
