Merman is absolutely awesome! He never disappoints! He knows how to work an audience and keep everyone engaged. He combines magic with comedy! He also does a host of other things to meet your needs. Best thing to do is contact him and see how arrangements can be made! He is loyal to his customers as you are to him!--P.J. Flippen

Held an event for children of military members and Merman provided more then expected. We had a gas leak and had to evacuate. He was able to move on with the show. It went so smooth that people thought the evacuation was part of the act. The kids loved the show and were all laughing the entire time.  Would recommend him to everyone in need of face painting, balloons and shows.

James came to Commonwealth Senior Living during Magic Week to perform a show for our Assisted Living & Memory Care residents. He was extremely engaging of all of the residents and even staff, and kept everyone extremely entertained and laughing with the humor he adds to his show. Very great performance! --Kaitlyn Johnson

birthday party (adult)

community event

I used his services for a mardi gras themed birthday party and I was very satisfied with the services that he provided, my guest were very entertained. He was there earlier than his performance time which was great because we were running behind and he was able to mingle and entertain my guest while they waited. They said he was funny and he was a big hit at the party. I will be contacting him for his services again In the future .   Review by Sabrina A. FROM SUFFOLK. VA

Review by PJ F. from CREWE, VA

We were very pleased with this team of face painters! They were friendly and easy to work with. They followed up before the event. They were on time. They were efficient, great with our customers and professional. We ended up getting a lot more people at our event than expected and they rolled with the punches. Would definitely recommend them and I'd use them again at future events. Thanks for helping make our event a success! -Beth with Whole Foods Market--Elizabeth T.

Merman's Magic show was a great addition to our company picnic. The kids really enjoyed being a part of the show. There was great interaction with the audience for both kids and adults, Loved the comedy. It was very entertaining, The face painting and balloon twisted was also very popular with the kids.  Nice job! We may try an adult show for a future event.   Review by Michelle E. FROM RALEGH, NC

corporate function

Excellent Mer provided a Magic show for my 8 year old granddaughter and her cousins ages 2-10 in my home. 50 minutes of age appropriate entertainment was provided. Mer's personality was a hit by children and adults alike. I was very pleased that he did include all the children in his performance along with the Birthday Girl. He arrived right on the time and was very pleasant to work with, so easy going. I hope to be able to employ Mer in the future for a longer Adult version of his Talent. It was My pleasure to work with him. I received many compliments of my "Great Idea" to hire him. Thanks for making me one Happy Grandma with a finicky 8 year old Granddaughter! Thank You So Much!!!!--Norene L.

Merman was great!

Excellent customer service. He called me a couple of times to customize the magic show that I wanted for my party. He was very funny and the kids enjoyed helping him out with the magic show. My daughters were too shy to get up in the front but Merman made it work and was still able to include them in the show.  Thank you! --Debbie M.

What a fantastic experience for both children and the adults!!! Our guests are still talking about how great the show was! MerMan kept in touch with me, arrived early, got right to work wowing the crowd. I would highly recommend Him and can't wait to book him aqain!--Sandy m.


Mr. Merman did 3 shows at the Elementary School where I teach. The kids love his magic and his connections to the No Bullying program were great! He did 2 programs during the school day and one evening performance with students and parents. He included students with all his performances. My 2nd great students thought he was wonderful. His program started lots of good talking points with all the students and his magic kept them interested in the show! Fun, Frolic and learning was had by all ages!--Cheryl D.
