I have had Gary perform at two events on two separate occasions separated by six years, so I have seen two acts separated in time, and both were spectacular. He is a consummate professional, catering to your needs as a host. For one party, we had him perform from a small staged area to a crowd, with several illusionist tricks, card tricks, and tricks with props (the $1 bill and lemon tricks were great!) We also had him at a party when he was mostly strolling through the cocktail party, performing for small groups of guests of 3 to 5 people. At both events he astonished everyone with the magic, multiple standing ovations and shrieks of glee. Even the folks dead-set on figuring out his tricks were baffled and amazed at the illusions. I would highly recommend him for an event, whether private, corporate, or public. He was a pleasure to work with and we will certainly have him at another event in the future. More...

Our group had the good fortune to hire Gary Goodman to perform at our annual autumn luncheon at Gleneagles Country Club in Delray, Florida.  Gary came highly recommended, therefore,we were expecting a good show.  Instead we got a GREAT show!  Gary combined humorous banter with his mentalist feats.  He was able to read the audience of 100 and give us a fabulous show.  Murmurs of, "how could he possibly have done that?" and "how could he have known that?" were heard throughout the room.  It was definitely a buzz worthy performance that will be talked about for months.  I would unequivocally recommend Gary Goodman for your next party or function.

Gary did a great job at our family party.  We had all ages and he incorporated everyone.  He was on time and easy to work with preparing for the night. We all laughed and his tricks are incredible.  I would definitely use him again if I have another party. More...

What can I say about Gary Goodman I found Gary on the internet after googling magicians in the Boca Raton area. After , our first telephone conversation, I hired Gary without our ever seeing  him perform in person. Sometimes , you just get a feeling about a person. What I liked best, was that Gary was always accessible, whether it be a phone call , email or text.I hired Gary for my husband's 70th birthday. I had 46 adult guests at the party. Gary said he would stroll around and do , up, close and personal magic during the cocktail part of my party.  He said he would perform a 45 minute show  afterwards . As it turned out, the party logistics changed and Gary was flexible and able to improvise. He did the show first and then his stroll around magic. Gary mesmerized us. His personality, magic, mind reading, humor and tricks intrigued 46 adults. We are all still talking about it and trying to figure out how he was able to do certain tricks/magic and mind reading!Do not think twice about hiring Gary. He is professional, personable and prepared to entertain  any audience. More...

This review is long but deserved... We saw Gary at the Boca Black Box and he puts on a great show. His magic is great but what's really hard to figure out is the "mind reading". Very hard to imagine how the tricks are done.. My partner loved the show and she was volunteering unsuccessfully every-time he asked...We liked it so much, I thought of Gary when it came time to present a ring. We spoke and he was eager to be a part of the night. We came up with a plan to "recognize" him at a local bar/rest, have some small talk and convince him to do some magic for us. He/we pulled off the acting and he launched into several really great close-magic tricks. We had a small crowd gathered around by the end with only Gary and I knowing the diamond ring would appear from a ball of flame as a finale! He was AWESOME! Lots of applause, some tears of joy and very happy couple. Thank you Gary for a really magical night! More...

I had heard great things about Gary and they all proved to be true.  Gary kept the crowd engaged and entertained the entire time.  I hired him for an event we held in our community.  All age groups were in attendance and loved the show.  Looking forward to more events with Gary in the future.  Highly recommend him.

We had the pleasure of having Gary perform at our home for a dinner party that I made for my husbands 60th birthday. I am happy to say he was an amazing hit!! I was so pleased. He is a gem of a guy! He was flexible with his timing when dinner ran late, he was hysterically funny, his magic was so entertaining, and all my guests couldn't stop raving about the evening. I couldn't have been happier with my choice to hire him. He does not disappoint!My husband was thrilled with his party.I highly recommend Gary with no reservation.He's a winner, and his personality and the way he performs is professional, intimate, and so thoroughly enjoyable!!! We laughed a lot, and his tricks were fascinating. No one could figure out how he did any of them.He is a great comedian and an awesome magician, too!! A true BOGO!!Very happy!!! More...

We booked Gary for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party and he was absolutely fantastic!  He wandered from table to table and did a series of close up magic tricks that left everyone amazed and hugely entertained.  I know many at the party were so impressed they are now interested in booking him for their own events!  Gary was just wonderful and added a special note of fun to a special evening.  Thank you Gary!

Gary Goodman really amazed my attendees at my conference this week. He did a great job of interacting with the crowds and getting them involved in the tricks. It was a pleasure working with him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and amazing magician.Bridget- Worldwide Business Research More...

Cub Scout Pack 333 hired Gary Goodman to perform at our Blue and Gold Banquet.  There were about 75 people there, including 30 kids ranging from 5-12 years of age.  He was outstanding!  He amazed all of us with his magic and he was also very funny.  Gary was incredibly professional and we would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a great entertainer for kids and adults.  Thank you, Gary, for helping us make our banquet extra special!

Gary entertained our guests at our annual holiday party.  We hosted about 100 adults at our home.  He performed 'strolling magic' for 3 hours.  It worked out perfectly.  He held small 'intimate' shows for groups of 3-6 throughout the time, going from table to table, or group to group.  He is a great entertainer in addition to being an outstanding magician.  The magic and illusions were very impressive and I received nothing but great feedback from our guests.  He performed non-stop the entire time! He was a hit!  We would recommend him without reservation. More...

I am posting this on behalf of a friend because she is not tech-savvy and raves about this magician. She says: Gary Goodman is an excellent magician and entertainer. I moved to Boca Raton, FL in the early 80's and have seen Gary's show at private parties as well as in South Florida Theatres. He is always amazing. Recently I had the pleasure of hiring him for a private party and the show was outstanding. His mind reading talents and humor really stole the show! I had guests of all ages and they were all raving about his talent...they kept saying he's a comedian and a magician. - Eileen P. More...
