Fantastic - literally! A great night, thanks to Jim. A great personality, a wonderful show that left even our cynics speechless! We are a small community group and Jim went the extra mile to keep everyone happy, laughing and amazed. Cant recommend more highly! Still pondering how he did what he did with no smoke or mirrors and all up close!
Hilary Morrison, Bridgend Farmhouse October 28, 2019
I was invited to dinner aboard the RRS Discovery in Dundee. The venue was a great and unique experience, but Jim's entertainment took it to another level. His warm, welcoming, friendly style coupled with his desire to ensure everyone enjoyed themselves absolutely shone through. As for the magic itself, it was sensational!! Jim turned a really great night into an outstanding one👏👏 I'm hoping to book him for my sons wedding 👍
Paul McKenna, Dinner Entertainment October 17, 2019
Just a superb entertainer. Close up magic at it's finest. Guests were held spellbound at a recent event I covered and the tricks were varied and brilliantly executed.
Derek Gerrard, Dinner Entertainment October 15, 2019
Jim performed at our wedding. He had the guests astounded with his tricks. Everyone was talking about how much they enjoyed his magic long after he left.
When he arrived we were running behind schedule. Jim kindly stayed for longer and performed for the amount of time agreed which meant people didn't miss out. He seemed to enjoy himself as much as our guests did and really added to the atmosphere of the evening.
Would highly recommend.
Connie Rowe, Wedding October 10, 2019
Jim #atmywedding engaged with the guest and created interactive show for them, he had a good variaty of tricks, everybody enjoyed it, specially me, the Bride.
Ramona Paduraru, Wedding October 9, 2019
We booked Jim for our Annual Agricultural Show, for entertainment throughout the day and at our Show Dance in the evening. We were absolutely blown away by his magic!! AMAZING!
Jim is very friendly, chatty and personable; he kept everyone entertained, if not slightly bemused, for hours. His magic tricks are still coming up in conversation! Highly recommend.
We loved having Jim so much that we have booked him for our 2020 Show!!! We can’t wait 🙂
Jenny McLaughlin, Lochs Agricultural Show October 1, 2019
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.
Norman Gilchrist, Mortonhall Golf Club October 1, 2019
Absolutely magic at Dunstane Houses for birthday celebrations tonight.
Evelyn Douglas, Private Party August 26, 2019
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.
Rachel Brown, Private Parties August 2, 2019
Jim is a top guy and a great magician, would definitely recommend him.
Liam Gartland, Street Magic June 13, 2019
Jim worked his wonders at a QC event recently and was completely fantastic. I unhesitatingly recommend Jim for corporate events.
Christopher Liversidge, CEO, Query Click June 5, 2019
Jim did brilliant show in our home for just the three of us and we absolutely loved it. He's warm, funny and the magic itself ranges from fun to mind-blowing - and all up-close. Card tricks, mind-reading, fire(!)... it had it all. He's fantastically entertaining and worth every penny.
Alan McDonald, Private Party May 10, 2019
My fiance met Jim at an office Christmas party and was wowed by his performance (especially the kitkat trick!). When we were planning our wedding we knew he had to be the entertainment during our drinks reception! Jim was fantastic to work with - he was able to provide the magic we love to watch for all of our guests and had everyone mesmerized by his work. Very professional and made our wedding that little bit extra special - thanks so much!
Megan Smith, Wedding May 9, 2019
Absolutely Superb! We invited Jim for an office party, with 10 people in total. He did a fantastic job! Everyone really enjoyed his presentation and skill, while we as organisers also really benefited from his punctuality, reliability and excellent communication.
We will he hiring him again for sure and can highly recommend him for any event!
Peebles Financial Ltd April 30, 2019
Fantastic Entertainment, Jim attended our Gents Presentation of Prizes at Dunnikier Park Golf Club, a move away from the usual after dinner speaker. No one was disappointed! Jim had the guys enthralled from the very first ‘magic’ trick. He very quickly had the guys baffled and was entertaining us all right up to the end of the evening. “A fabulous alternative to a speaker” thoroughly entertaining, and we will be booking Jim again. Many thanks Jim for a great evening.
Stuart Ward Dunnikier Park Golf Club November 28, 2018
We booked Jim to entertain during our 'Staff Away Day' lunch - he was a fantastic addition and was easily able to move around entertaining various small groups of people. The tricks were absolutely mind-boggling and will certainly stay with many of the guests for a very long time indeed! I would definitely recommend Jim to anyone looking for a light-hearted and fascinating addition to any kind of gathering.
Chantel Peacock Scottish Whisky Association October 5, 2018
Jim provided really great after dinner entertainment for a work event and connected with all of the guests. He had a wonderful energy and gave us a truly remarkable performance, which had us all on the edge of our seats. We will definitely be hiring Jim again for future events.
Heather Meade Query Click October 3, 2018
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.
Tim Donnelly Smith Query Click October 3, 2018
Jim is magic! We hired him for a small after dinner event (10 diners) and he truly wowed everyone. Not the cheesy magic but great tricks that generated much entertainment. I would definitely recommend and we will be hiring again and for magic lessons!
Peter Rankin, Query Click September 27, 2018
Jim was really good, he loved people recording and getting up close and observing his tricks. He rendered me befuddled with his unique tricks. Had him for a work dinner party.
Ade Haribo Fowler Query Click, After Dinner Entertainment September 27, 2018
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!
Rose Street, Glasgow Science Centre September 18, 2018
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.
Caroline Tyler, Wedding September 15, 2018
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!
Juliette Oxford, Edinburgh, Wedding September 9, 2018
Brilliant again, thanks for being so wonderfully you, Jim! Humble and real... Good to have you make the links with your mental health work with your magic. Food for thought
Robin Naumann, Festival Fringe Show, Edinburgh August 24, 2018
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!
Richard Mowart, Christmas Party, Edinburgh August 15, 2018
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.
Aileen Dickson, Birthday Party, Edinburgh August 11, 2018
Ross Attenburgh, Birthday Party, Edinburgh August 10, 2018
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!!
Jock Urquhart, Ceilidh Place, Ullapool August 3, 2018
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!
Matthew Smith, Birthday Party, MidLothian July 29, 2018
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.
Will Jackson, Summer Party, Edinburgh June 30, 2018
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.
Alan Cowie, Wedding, Edinburgh June 3, 2018
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.
Eddie Neilson, Wedding, Edinburgh May 30, 2018
Jim came to our wedding and entertained our guests while we had photographs taken. He was interactive and helped bring people together - a definite talking point on the day, and afterwards!
Kim Kemp, Wedding, Glasgow May 28, 2018
Jim is a must for any occasion, amazes you every time! Could not recommend highly enough.
Akva Bar, Hogmanay Party, Edinburgh March 18, 2018
We have used Jim twice recently and he was thoroughly engaging for all who attended. He is an absolute must for an engaging staff night out or retirement event.
Mearns & Company, Christmas & Retirement Party, Edinburgh March 12, 2018
Jim is extremely talented and captivated - great entertainment. Engaging for the whole group and everyone was blown away! Brilliant patter and tricks. Couldn't recommend him more as he will bring a lot of energy and laughter and awmazement to your event, party, gathering or whatever you're organising.
Jonny Kinross, Charity Burns Supper, Edinburgh March 3, 2018
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.
Grant Wightman, Wedding, Edinburgh February 17, 2018
Booked Jim for The Bongo Club. Unbelievable magic. Nice guy. 10/10
Nick Karlsberg, Night Club, Edinburgh January 4, 2018

Paul McGill, Christmas Party, Darlington December 28, 2017
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.
Mila Dijkman, Wedding, Edinburgh December 23, 2017
We asked Jim the Magician to come and perform his magic at our daughter's wedding. He was an absolute star and with his personable manner he entertained the guests. Everyone was enthralled and his performance was extremely professional. We would highly recommend Jim for any occasion that deserves that extra bit of magic.
Theo Dijkman, Wedding, Edinburgh December 23, 2017
We hired Jim for our work Christmas party and he was fantastic! He creates a lovely rapport with his audience and his tricks truly are unbelievable. Would highly recommend him, he'll make it a great night.
Christopher Macrae, Christmas Party, 2017 December 21, 2017
We saw Jim at the Pitt market in Edinburgh and he blew us away with his tricks. Really friendly guy and had the whole audience captivated. He had a wide range of baffling tricks. I would highly recommend hiring Jim - A great entertainer.
Alfred Cary, Street Food Market, Edinburgh December 5, 2017
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!
