Bob: “It was great to see you again and have you perform.
Everyone at the CPFD told me that it would be difficult to entertain
and contain so many children for the given time period as I
began planning the Christmas/Holiday party. Little did they
know that I had a little magic up my sleeve and I knew to contact
you for the event. I know all the adults were amazed at how
entertained and focused the children were on your show. Since
then, all the members of the department have been telling me
how well it went. That includes people that did not even attend.
I guess word got out. Once again, you did an absolutely fantastic
job entertaining both the children and the adults in the room.
Seeing the smiles and the wonderment on the kids’ faces
was a great gift to all. Thank you for making our 2010 Holiday
Party at the Carle Place Fire Department a successful one. All
the best to you. Have a great New Year. I’m sure we’ll
talk again in the near future."

performance. Beyond my expectations. A mix of mind reading,
magic with cards, books, etc, audience participation, the power
of suggestion, and more. This performer did his homework. He
knows what teens are reading, who their pop heroes are, what
their career aspirations are and more. He used the library setting
and his magic often had positive messages for teens. Performer
was very attuned to the audience and library setting. Very in
touch with teens’ interests. He is a talented magician,
comedian and mind reader."

had to write to tell you how many wonderful comments I have
heard about your "Magic Beyond Imagination!" Show.
It was fabulous! Everyone was mesmerized. I don't think anyone

the other night. You were truly entertaining and not only kept
the children enthralled but the adults as well! It was very
generous the way in which you shared your profit with the school,

with entertaining props that ranged from a gigantic toothbrush
to an imaginary deck of cards, magician Bob McEntee was able
to keep his audience entranced. Literally. The children in his
audience were also able not only to watch the show, but to take
part. David Sasson was able to try out the toothbrush that was
almost as big as he was and the children had great fun with
an imaginary card trick of their very own. An adventurous time
was had by all"
