"Tony was hilarious – he had the crowd rolling. One guest event said, "I almost peed my pants" (true statement). Tony was witty, engaging, and even tried out some new material that was a big hit. Much needed laughter for a night out!"

Federal Programs Director, County Wide Teacher Professional Development Inservice in Lafayette, TN 7/30/2018 review of Larry Weaver

"Joshua Lozoff has the same excitement with each performance as if it is the first time he's done the trick. He really relates to the audience and looks like he's having as much fun as we are. We had some scheduling concerns with the number of guests, and he was gracious enough to do two shows so we could split the audience and give everyone a chance to see the magic."

Director of Operations, Company Celebration in Atlantic Beach, NC 7/7/2018 review of Joshua Lozoff

"Joshua was fantastic! We had never had a magician perform for our Club, always the same old tired band thing, so we took a bit of a risk booking Joshua. We couldn't have been happier! He set the tone for our entire "Magical Year" and we are still riding that wave months later. His show was incredible and completely engaging. Thank you!"

VP of Development, Comedy Night Fundraiser in Rock Springs, WY 10/14/2017 review of John Felts

"I want to express my sincere thanks for the phenomenal performance Joshua Lozoff gave at our Good Samaritan Fund Dinner. The group here is still talking about all that they experienced and that 'the evening was truly magical'. I am even hearing from people who weren’t even in attendance that they 'heard the entertainment was spectacular and were sorry to have missed it.' I knew he was going to be outstanding but could never have imaged just how truly outstanding. I think one of the best comments I keep hearing is that 'his performance was different that anything the group has ever seen.' Joshua mixed so many wonderful elements into his performance that everyone in the audience was drawn in from the start. It was humorous, educational, entertaining, engaging, mind-blowing and so much more! I also want to thank him for his professionalism. His personable style is sincere and that certainly came through. I appreciated the way he respected each volunteer that joined him on stage and how he empowered each of them. It was obvious each of them felt comfortable as they all had huge smiles on their faces as they came off stage. Thanks for going above and beyond. I know the group is going to be talking about your visit for a long time!"

 Speakers and Entertainers in Paris, TX

"John Felts did an amazing job! We didn't have the turn out that we had hoped and even with a smaller crowd, he entertained with great relevant jokes. He arrived as planned and was very professional and friendly. Our family talked about some of his jokes even after we were back at the house. Would highly recommend him!"

"David Ferrell was a big hit. He drew the crowd in by engaging them and had a quick wit to twist what they said into a joke. He was great to work with in advance as he touched base and encouraged different types of advertising for our fund raiser. So glad we found "Trusted Speakers" who offered David Ferrell. Good clean fun! Thanks!"
