We went to San Francisco for a 4 days vacation and the Magic Show was the high light. It's only scheduled for weekend Friday - Sunday so you'd have to play in advance. Luckily we checked on Wednesday and was about to make for the Friday show.

The show last about 70-80 minutes and have a lot of audience interaction, even though some of them we are still not 100% sure if the audience are real ones. The 3 kids aging 16 and 10 have talked about the show for a couple of days.

Highly recommend for family with teenage.

It was so great having to watch this Magic Show. I was so lucky to be chosen to go on the stage, and Timothy made say "WOW".

We saw this show with our two kids who are 12 and 14. We all enjoyed it. We laughed at his funny jokes. We enjoyed being called on stage. The magic was great. It is very reasonably prices.

I love magic shows, especially close-up magic, and have gone to magic shows by all the big name magicians over the years and watched others on television--though that can't compare with being there in person. I think Tim Noonan is a superb magician, but he also is a warm and personable human being who spends considerable time before and after the show interacting with anyone who wants to talk to him. His show is suitable for all ages and will be loved by both children and adults.

I enjoyed Tim's show as much as any I've ever seen. He does some classical routines very well--I particularly enjoyed his versions of the Chinese linking rings, much of it done at a very slow speed, making it all the more impressive, and a cut and restored rope routine which I have no clue how he did it--best I've ever seen.

He did an illusion in which he levitated a small table which was amazing to watch from the front row. He also did a mentalist routine which was among the best I've seen.

So, great magic, personable and accessible magician, family friendly, great location, plus a good share of the ticket proceeds go to support good environmental causes. If you like magic, don't miss this show. My wife and I left his show with huge smiles and a lovely sense of wonder about what we had seen.

Most magicians put on a show that revolves around their one forte -- card tricks, box illusions, slight of hand, or what have you. What I immediately liked about Timothy Noonan was his well-rounded diversity. This one-hour show packed a little of everything, all masterfully performed and pulled off beautifully. In fact, I'd be hard-pressed to name what his specialty is, he did everything so well. My family of six walked away happy and well entertained. And interestingly, every person in the family had a different favorite, and even if the trick they liked wasn't your favorite, you had to nod your head and agree that it was a pretty great trick. Excellent show.
