Reviews & Testimonials

What a brilliant show. We had guests at my 8 year old’s party ranging from 5 – 80 years old and he had every single one of us captivated for a full hour. Awesome tricks with a great balance of audience participation and a hilarious repertoire. Highly, highly recommend. Lindsey – Surrey Quays 

We had the pleasure of having The Professor Palmermoff Magic Show at my son’s 7th birthday, and it was an absolutely magical experience! Professor Palmermoff’s performance was nothing short of spectacular. His magic tricks and illusions were mesmerizing, and he had the kids and adults alike in awe.The show was a perfect blend of humor and wonder, making it an unforgettable experience for everyone in attendance. Professor Palmermoff’s charisma and talent shone brightly throughout the performance. I can’t recommend The Professor Palmermoff Magic Show enough for any special occasion. It’s pure magic and entertainment at its best! If you’re looking for an enchanting and unforgettable experience, don’t hesitate to book him for your event. It’s a five-star performance all the way!-  Holly – Ladywell

The Professor brought the magic to the party. Classic trick after classic trick – from cards to balls and cups, from disappearing rings to magically appearing booze – all while dealing skilfully with some intense 6 and 7-year-old hecklers. He was fantastic.  Peter Stanton

Hi Prof, just wanted to thank you for the marvellous joint birthday party for Milly and her friend Ella. Thought it might be tough gig with so many little un’s but your child control was effortless. Plus the parents had fun too. Great magic tricks, funny, clever and with great charm. Thanks again Prof. Highly recommended. Matt Watson, Forest Hill

Well Professor, I just had to write and thank you for the magic show you put on at my granddaughter’s party, this June 2022. Your performance was outstanding. You sussed out your audience quickly and clearly adapted your style and delivery to meet their needs. As a result you managed your audience of 8 years olds brilliantly. They were exuberant and excitable, but you used the right words, the right tone and non-verbal cues to get them in the palm(!) of your hand. It’s not easy to impress someone like me who spent a lifetime in primary education, but you had it all! You were humorous, witty and kind of laid back, which was a style equally appreciated by the adults present as well as the children. The magic was excellent and in some ways us adults were more impressed. There were complex tricks and illusions that were impossible to work out. This is a show that is perfect for a children’s party or an adult gathering. Well done Professor: I shall recommend you far and wide….and even beyond.  Ralph (Streatham)

We booked the prof for a 7th birthday party. He was sensational – never seen someone keep 20 kids rapt for an hour. The magic was pitched at the right level, inclusive and elusive for kids and adults alike. Managed the crowd-control very well. Consummate pro who knew how to set up the room and organise proceedings. Would highly recommend. Thanks Prof  – Tom Spenser

I cannot reccommend Professor Palmermoff highly enough! We hired him for our son’s 5th birthday party & his magic show really made the party. His show was wonderful & funny , the children sat transfixed throughout, all the adults really enjoyed it too. Deborah, Beckenham

Not just for children’s parties – We booked Professor Palmermoff for a 30th birthday party and he did not disappoint! He put on a great performance suitably tailored to a crowd of adults. His tricks were truly magical and there are still ones that we can’t figure out. All the guests commented on what fun it had been, and it was an entertaining and captivating hour or so of magic.I’d absolutely recommend booking Professor Palmermoff for your upcoming party, no matter what the age of your guests! Thank you Professor!  Cleo Stringer

Hello Professor…I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous show you put on for my daughter, Zosia, and her friend Sachin at their 5th birthday party on Saturday. Everyone, young and old and inbetween had a truly wonderful time. An absolutely brilliant show full of charm and humour. I know for sure that the experience will feature in many childhood memories now and ever onwards for those kids. And i shan’t forget it either, despite my troublesome forgetfulness! Therefore, a hundred thousand thanks from me and my family and friends, and i will of course recommend you wholeheartedly anytime i hear anyone mention they need entertaining.  Andrew

Professor Palmermoff is a hit with the adults as well as the kids: hisaffable and humorous personality quickly endears him to audiences andthey’re happy to see him back (we’ve booked three years on the trot);adults always appreciate a kids’ entertainer who aims the odd thing atthem too. His tricks look pretty conventional but are well-executed; personally I always prefer to be baffled by a magician, and the Profdoes this quite successfully in my case.  Steve Henwood (co-director, Bath Fringe festival) 

Professor Palmermoff came to my 8 yes old twins’ party today and kept over 30 kids entertained for 2 hours solid. No mean feet! Magic show was very entertaining for the kids and some brilliant close-up magic for the adults too. He even dj’d for the disco afterwards and managed to get the kids up and dancing. Everyone said it was a brilliant party. We are very grateful and had a wonderful afternoon. Thank you Professor Palmermoff!   Sally

Absolutely fantastic. I was sure the kids would love Professor Palmermoff but totally didn’t expect how the parents got into it and were captured by him and his magic for the whole show! He was lovely and funny and the magic we are still trying to figure out. Seriously great. Recommend for any age party   Sacha Miller

Thank you so much for your show at Ewan’s 5th birthday – it was marvellous and enjoyed by all, kids and grown ups alike. The kids loved being involved in the magic tricks and the grown ups were genuinely dumbfounded – where on earth did those apples come from? How could you possibly know which card was picked? We were all talking about it for a long time after.Ewan was grinning from ear to ear throughout and has been practicing his magic ever since, he’s even requested a magic show kit for Christmas, so you’ve left quite an impression! It was also lovely to be able to sit and enjoy the show as a parent, an appreciated break from the hustle and bustle of hosting a 5th birthday party! Thank you again, I’ll be recommending you to friends and family and will probably see you again at Ewan’s 6th!   Rachel

Its not often you see 50 children in rapt attention one minute and explode with joy the next, but Professor Palmermoff can hold an audience of any age. With deft sleight of hand he magically manipulates the tools of his trade, making objects disappear, others reappear whilst some tricks seem to go wrong. And if you think magic is just for the kids, Professor Palmermoff’s witty delivery keeps the most cynical of adults enthralled.  Moira Tait (Brockley Max Festival)

We hired Professor Palmermoff for our sons 7th birthday. The show is perfect for this agegroup, in-fact there was something in it for a range of ages from grandparents to babies! My family continued to rave about him the following day. He even wowed us all on the piano ahead of the main show. A little extra welcome surprise. The whole thing was a fab addition to our celebration and I would definitely recommend the Professor for your event! We plan to book a couple of magic lessons for my son and his friends also – they are so excited about this! Thanks again Professor x  Nicky,  Greenwich 

Hi Simon,Many thanks for your show at Georgia’s birthday party. It was great – the children were enthralled by it and the adults seemed to enjoy it very much too! I thought it was great and made it a really special party. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.  Penny, Ladywell

Hi Simon, A big thank you for yesterday. Everybody enjoyed the show so much. All the parents thanked me for a great birthday party. We all had our favourite bits: me the handkerchief disappearing in your hand; Kalistah, the cards coming out of your mouth, Ebony, the water splashing on your face from the newspaper and Sunil, the transformation of balloons into Wine. It was great meeting Prof Palmermoff.  Nadine

Professor Palmermoff was undoubtedly the most popular act in the Children’s Tent at the Hope festival. His ability to perform incredible magic tricks whilst maintaining a continuous stream of witty banter with the audience provided top notch entertainment for kids and adults alike. Jerry Waterman (Artistic Director, The Hope Festival)

A few years ago, having seen Professor Palmermoff perform at several festivals, we hired him to entertain at our daughter’s fourth birthday party. In spite of the difference in venue, from marquee to sitting room, his funny, friendly style created a relaxed and intimate atmosphere which made it an incredibly fun and memorable experience. He has amazing sleight of hand, so cards were appearing from everywhere and anywhere. He also does an incredible rope trick which was a particular favourite of mine. All in all he had an array of tricks and with some routines aimed at the very young such as the magic colouring book and some at the older ones, he left faces of all ages filled with wonder and delight. We recently saw Professor Palmermoff again at a friend’s garden party and despite being a few years older, my daughter was just as amazed and delighted as she was at four. Professor Palmermoff was the hilarious and brilliant addition to our summer garden party. He captivated all our guests, young and old, with his slap stick magic and his charming and wittyhumour…. I have always been an absolute fan and would highly recommend the profs wonderfully alternative magical show to anyone.  Lonneke (Nunhead)
