What an amazing and fun way to spend an afternoon! You watch enough TV and movies, it's easy to forget just how enjoyable watching a live show can be. And this show is definitely enjoyable! Timothy Noonan is a very talented magician and a great entertainer. He combined some classic tricks like ropes, cards, and rings with some more unique tricks as well as some pretty incredible mind-reading/mentalist skills. And the man is funny! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
Tim personally greeted the audience as they came, and talked to people after the show. It's fun for a chance to actually talk to entertainers, and this guy is really nice. He's great with kids, too. The show is definitely one to take the whole family to. I'm already planning to come back with my nieces, and I will absolutely be telling my friends with kids to go see this show. And all my friends without kids, too!

A tip for parking:
The show is in the theater at The Aquarium of the Bay at Pier 39. If you go to the California Welcome Center on the second level and show your AAA card, you'll get a "Fun Pack" of discounts that includes 2 hours of free parking at the Pier 39 Garage. You can also print a coupon for the Fun Pack on the Pier 39 website, if you aren't a AAA member.

Timothy Noonan is a magical and speaking sensation genius! What a fantastic show!!! My friend and I went to see his show and it was well worth the money spent and the wait in line, that moved very quickly.

Timothy Noonan greeted everyone in the line and was interested in who his guests were. He remembered people's name and where we had traveled from. Within minutes of the show starting, we were glued, laughing hysterically at the mass of humour, and completely engrossed in his magic and stories, which was delivered beautifully, and child and adult friendly. He included the audience and showed magic in a way I've always dreamed of seeing. Of course he did some tricks we all have grown up loving, but his approach brings it to a new level. He also performed things I will forever be in awe over — he is brilliant!

And though everyone was laughing hysterically throughout the show, there were moments of sheer beauty, and people left feeling uplifted.

I would definately recommend this show for any occasion! Whether it is just you, friends, family, this is the must see show!
