“I had a wonderful time.  It was amazing to see the wonder and laughter in the people’s eyes as you performed your magic.  By magic, I don’t mean only the tricks you performed but also your wit and interaction with the audience.  Thank you so much. You are a fantastic entertainer.”

“Elias was great to work with, very professional and adaptable. We worked with Elias as part of our TV show “Random Acts,” and he played a very important part in our episode. Ultimately the whole surprise we were trying to pull off came down to him, and it went off with out a hitch. His show was great and left the audience amazed and entertained. He has great stage presence, and interacts well with the audience. Elias is the man.”

-Sarah Saxe

Curator, National Mining Museum

Elias was the “ringmaster” at a Circus theme wedding, held at my venue Barbwire and Lace. The peerless prestidigitator was polite and professional. He was entertaining and easy to work with. I highly recommend hiring Elias as entertainment for your next gathering. His engaging performance delighted the guests and his professionalism made him a delight to work with.”

Carole Prescott

“He was fantastic to work with and held the audience spellbound. Our theme for the evening was Charlie Holmberg’s book, The Paper Magician. And Elias went out of his way to make the evening special. He came dressed like the old-time magicians in the book. And he tailored his show to our theme, performing lots of paper magic tricks and allowing everyone to participate!  He also pulled a real rabbit from a hat and sawed an audience member in half. I would recommend Elias to anyone looking for a magician. He is professional and dependable, and he puts on a great show!”
