Google Review – FIVE STARS

“Jim came to entertain us at the Mortonhall Golf Club Dinner and his performances going round the tables was one of the highlights of the evening. Every so often we heard the people at the tables burst out in spontaneous applause, which was usually accompanied by looks of bewilderment and questions of “How did he do that!!! I would recommend Jim for any type of event where you are looking for quality entertainment and amazing magic.” (Edinburgh, 2019)
