…absolutely unexplainable skill and mastery.

Jim came to our Cancer Card Eurovision Party and he was loved by everyone. He worked his way around the tables performing close magic with some absolutely unexplainable skill and mastery. Jim works hard at what he does and is a pure legend. Would not hesitate to have him at a future event. Thank you Jim 💛

Jim was a fantastic edition to the celebrations

We booked Jim the Magician for my Dad’s 70th Birthday garden party after my sister had seen him at another opening event in Edinburgh. Jim was a fantastic edition to the celebrations and entertained our children and the adults with his magic! We all loved it and were delighted with how he added to the fun of the day. Highly recommend to anyone who believes in magic and is looking to add a very fun touch to a special occasion or event!

We would definitely recommend him.

Jim performed close up magic for our guests at my Wife’s Fiftieth Birthday Party. Everyone, of all ages, were really impressed and amazed by his tricks! Having him perform during the reception before the meal worked really well. We would definitely recommend him.

Jim is undoubtedly a class act…

Jim is undoubtedly a class act and has opened my eyes to the art of magic. He’s a must at any event including weddings, birthdays or corporate events.  I first met him years ago at the Edinburgh fringe. Me and my friends have gone annually to make sure we don’t miss him. Since then, we’ve managed to book him for several events that people still talk about years later.  Beyond his unbelievable skill and professionalism, he’s a genuinely kind and charismatic individual that brings joy to so many.

My kids are still talking about it a week later!

To make a joint birthday party more special we booked Jim for a one hour session at my parents house. Despite the request being very short notice Jim was happy to accommodate us. All the way through the booking process Jim was polite and patient (we needed to change the timing on more than one occasion). Anyway, on the night he was great. It was a mixed audience with my family ranging from 5 years old to 80+ but Jim managed to keep everyone engaged and amazed. My kids are still talking about it a week later! Anyway, thanks again and no doubt we will be in touch again in the future.

I cannot recommend Jim enough!!!

Jim is incredible! We worked with him on a community event exploring magic, madness and what gets called ‘mental health’. He was wonderful to work with, taking time to get to know the group and understand the project. His close up magic is completely astonishing and he had kids and adults alike enchanted! He taught a magic lesson to a group of people who all mastered tricks, had fun and grew their confidence. And delivered an amazing show with thoughtful ideas around mental health and a warm invitation for people to talk about the topics. It was totally transformative for people. And I have literally no other explanation for what happened that day other than real, actual magic. Can you tell – I cannot recommend Jim enough!!!

I am so glad I booked Jim he catered for all ages

Thank you so much Jim for your brilliant Magic at our wedding party. Everyone absolutely loved the magic, it has been a great talking point. I highly recommend Jim, to add that extra entertainment to your party/event. I am so glad I booked Jim he catered for all ages, my young nephew was in awe. It was also great for the guests who did not dance, that they had some extra entertainment. I was blown away by the tricks, everyone was. Jim is a great magician, he was very good at responding to my emails in a timely manner, and was happy to change the date for us twice due to covid. Jim made sure he went round the room to see everyone. It was a pleasure having Jim at our event. The cannonball trick was brilliant, I have never seen my nephew so quiet 🙂 watching Jim intently as to what he would do next. Thank you Jim from me and Ben. We will definitely book you again for future parties.

Honestly, he was a highlight of our big day

We met Jim a few years running at the Edinburgh fringe many years ago and thought he was absolutely incredible. We asked him if he would perform close magic at our wedding, which we thought was a long shot as we got married in Essex; however, Jim was so excited for us he travelled all the way down for us. Honestly, he was a highlight of our big day for our guests and he blew everyone’s minds. We can’t wait to see him at the fringe again soon. Thanks again Jim – you are so talented and we are in such awe of your magic.

Endless range of mind-boggling tricks

I hired Jim for a private student event in Edinburgh. And wow! What a night! He was highly professional and was the highlight of the evening by a considerable distance. Everyone there found him hugely entertaining and absolutely loved it. He’s an incredibly talented, skilful magician, with an endless range of mind-boggling tricks. Would certainly recommend him for any event!

His teaching abilities are of a similar high standard

I booked a two hour session with Jim to learn some close-up card tricks. This is something that has interested me for many years and an opportunity not to be missed. Jim is very friendly and the ultimate professional. As a magician, he is outstanding. His teaching abilities are of a similar high standard. He is detailed, methodical and (importantly) very understanding of his pupil’s shortcomings. The lesson was backed up with notes and a fabulous series of videos (one for each trick). Whether you want to learn magic or simply see it performed, I highly recommend Jim.

Professional, courteous and helpful

Booked Jim for my wife’s special birthday party last weekend (it’s a secret) and he was nothing but professional, courteous and helpful in the lead up to the event.  On the night itself he kept 16 guests with an age range of 13-64 enthralled with his act taking his time to involve everyone and indeed repeating 3 of his tricks at close range for the guest of honour as well as teaching her to do a trick.  At the end of the night my wife said that it was her best birthday party since she was 10 ( I didn’t ask) and that was in the main due to Jim.

Close-up magic is just mind-blowing!

Jim is a consummate professional, whose close-up magic is just mind-blowing! I was treated to a couple of hours of Jim’s entertainment, along with five teenage children. We were all blown away by his ‘tricks’ (the word tricks feels a little inadequate to describe his art). I have no idea how he did most of them, they were so clever! And the children in our group have been inspired to try & learn some magic courtesy of Jim. I can definitely recommend him for whatever event you are holding!

tricks were fantastic, leaving us all impressed and baffled!

Jim came out to our house a few weeks back for a family gathering for a 50th birthday and his tricks were fantastic, leaving us all impressed and baffled!  We were a small-ish group of about 15 adults and 5 kids aged 6 to 9. So he did a one hour show for us and it really was brilliant – aimed at the adults, but the kids loved it too and he was fantastic with them…even teaching them a wee trick at the end!  I would definitely recommend him and have him back again at any future event. Thanks Jim!

Definitely the highlight of our evening

Wanted something different to celebrate our first friends gathering post pandemic. From the start Jim offered great communication and a very seamless booking process. Jim arrived early for an hour of close up magic, he performed a number of tricks for each of us (9 people), it was as much fun watching others tricks as well as participating in our own. Another magic trick was remembering all our names well within the hour! Definitely the highlight of our evening and still trying to figure out how he does it! Thanks again Jim.

Such fun and so impressive!

We invited Jim to perform at our daughter’s wedding, which was held during Covid restrictions. The guests loved Jim’s cabaret performance, but were particularly entertained when he went round each table performing his sleight of hand magic – such fun and so impressive!  Jim’s such a nice guy, he met with bride and groom virtually before the wedding, and stayed later than planned to make sure he got round to each table. Can’t thank him enough!

Jim came along and performed at my daughters 21st to a variety of ages and his whole performance went down a storm, thoroughly enjoyed by all, as he worked around every table and was still getting discussed the next day.  Jim came along prior to the band arriving and helped get everyone in a great mood and he involved everyone who attended.

Jim made our wedding (during covid) so special

We hired Jim for our wedding entertainment and he was absolutely amazing! From our very interaction Jim was a fantastic mixture of being extremely professional and lots of fun. He initially did a cabaret act which was great entertainment for everyone and then he went round the tables. He made sure that everyone had a chance to see him and feedback from our guests was fantastic. In fact, we could tell that our guests were enjoying Jim’s magic so much that we hired him for an extra hour!  Jim made our wedding (during covid) so special – we can’t thank him enough.

Everyone loved him

“Jim is outstanding! We hired him as entertainment after our wedding breakfast as an alternative to dancing (due to Covid), but I would choose Jim over dancing any day! He amazed and bewildered us, our guests and staff. And there were plenty of laughs. He did a short show for everyone before making his way around the tables along with alcohol gel to keep everyone safe. Everyone loved him.  Jim was fast at communicating and even took a lateral flow test before to ensure he was fine to work. I will be using Jim again for any future events!”

If I could give him 6 stars I would!!!

Jim is a fantastic magician! He has performed at both an Office Christmas party in (Dec 2018) and most recently at my Mum’s 60th Birthday celebration. We had a private section in our favourite Thai Restaurant in Edinburgh – Time for Thai on Castle Street. He was able to adapt the tricks he had planned to the space and the audience without any planning or seeing the space beforehand – really useful when its being worked around a meal.

His magic is fascinating, funny and captivating for all ages. He is friendly and personable and can engage with anyone.

I was at a dinner party, with Jim as the post-main course entertainment. And… he was brilliant. You can watch his card and other tricks as hard as you like, from a range of 18 inches, and still not understand it. I guess that’s because it’s magic. Jim made us feel like a right bunch of muggles for a full hour. T’riffic.

He helped create a real buzz

Having met Jim at The Pitt in Edinburgh and been blown away by his magic and lovely personality, I knew we had to get him along to one of our Science Lates at Glasgow Science Centre. Jim was fantastic on the night, queue-busting and gathering crowds all around the GSC building. He helped create a real buzz on the night, raised lots of laughs and smiles, wowed people with his card tricks and we’ve now had him back a number of times as it’s the perfect addition to our nights. See you at our next Late in November Jim!

He is genius!!

We met Jim at a festival and were blown away by the magic he performed close up. He is genius!! We asked him to entertain our guests during the drinks reception at our wedding last week and it was one of the best decisions we made. All the guests loved him. Jim is extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with. Can’t recommend him highly enough.

Our guests have been raving about him

Jim performed magic at our wedding in Custom Lane. He completely blew our minds with his slick tricks and awesome slight of hand. We have seen Jim perform a number of times before, but never lose our wonderment at how he does it! Our guests have been raving about him ever since. We are also very grateful for the special magic trick that he did especially for us – you can see the look of amazement in the photos. Thanks again Jim for adding a touch of magic to our wedding. You’re the best!

People still talk about his KitKat trick!

Jim is absolutely amazing! If you’re looking for a magician, look no further. I have seen him perform several times and he never ceases to impress! I’m looking forward to his show at this year’s festival. But don’t worry if you’re not in Edinburgh for the festival, Jim can be booked for private parties, we were lucky enough to have him perform at my works Christmas do a few years ago and people still talk about his Kit Kat trick! Best to book him well in advance though as his skills are always in high demand!

He’s the best magician in town

I’ve seen Jim perform for a few years now and he is always fantastic and always coming up with new tricks. He’s the best magician in town, some of the tricks truly baffle me. A must for any party or get together.

You’ll be hard pressed to find better!!

I run a small hotel, restaurant and bar, and recently had the pleasure of Jim performing informally for those guests lucky enough to be in attendance. I’ve seen Jim perform a few times and his attention to detail, easy manner and convincing close-up magic always delight and entertain – including, as others have said, even the hardest of cynics!  I’m really looking forward to having Jim back here in a more organised sense, for a bit of a ‘magic dinner’ and really can’t recommend him enough! If you are looking for a magician for a party, wedding or family get together, you’ll be hard pressed to find better!!

He cares and loves his passion

Booked Jim for my mum’s 50th and he was amazing. As I have seen him perform before, I knew what to expect, we only paid him for an hour but he Is not one to simply leave when the clock strikes the hour! He is happy to do the extra trick which shows he cares and loves his passion for performing and not just making his income! Thanks so much Jim, as I said, My family is massive so will no doubt be booking you again!

He was fantastic from start to finish

Jim performed at a party I organised in Edinburgh last weekend. He was fantastic from start to finish – helpful and prompt in replying to emails beforehand, and on the actual night his magic wowed everyone there. He moved easily amongst the guests at the initial reception and among the tables during the dinner itself, and had a lot of guests gasping and asking what just happened! Highly recommended.

Book Jim NOW!!

Book Jim NOW!!  Jim performed magic at our wedding meal recently. It was a mixed bunch of all age groups, and everyone, without exception, loved him.  Jim is a delightful, charming performer who can and does win over even the biggest skeptics. It’s a joy to watch someone who clearly has such a love and passion for what they do.

Jim is friendly and a great entertainer

Jim performed at our Wedding on 3rd February 2018 at Summerhall. We met Jim back in August 2016 where he helped create ‘some of’ the magic on our first date.  Of course we’ve met Jim a few times. His tricks are great. At our wedding he entertained at the drinks reception / meal and part of the evening.  All the feedback we got from our friends was he was brilliant – they still keep going on about him. We managed a couple of tricks with him ourselves and were not disappointed. Jim is friendly and a great entertainer.

Jim is a great guy

Jim is a great guy and even better wizard. His charm and sleight of hand make his close up magic very special indeed. We called upon Jim to entertain our guests at our wedding reception where he went down a storm.

He was certainly a talking point of our day!

We hired Jim for our wedding in Edinburgh. He mingled with our guests in a relaxed and unforced manner during our drinks reception and evening reception, providing entertainment for both young and old. All of our guests were amazed by his tricks and he was certainly a talking point of our day! We would recommend Jim in a heartbeat. Thanks Jim, for bringing some extra magic to our special day.

Highly recommend hiring!

Highly recommend hiring! I hired Jim the Magician for my boyfriends Halloween Birthday Party. In terms of the booking process, none of the other magicians came close; he was quick to respond, easy to deal with, and a reasonable price (other magicians were coming in at RIDICULOUS prices). He turned out to be well worth his fee. Our guests were blown away, and it really took the house party to the next level – something different and special! Great magic skills. Would recommend him to friends and family for any upcoming events – thanks again Jim!
