“Your contribution to the Duquesne University School of Business Christmas party was fantastic! Once we had settled on the theme of 'the Magic of the Season' it was a natural that magical entertainment was the way to go. Your close-up performances were a hit with everyone. You were endlessly charming and professional as you moved smoothly from group to group and connected one on one with so many of our guests. Everyone has had nothing but compliments of your magical ability to entertain and the “magic” you added to our event.”
- Sharon Evan, Duquesne University

"You more than met the challenge of captivating an audience of 330 Associates whose ages ranged from 17 to 55+. The fact that all of upper management stayed through the entertainment portion (they haven't in the past) proved you were one of our best ever year-end events. Your "creative conjuring" amazed us and your interaction with such a mixed audience entertained all of us – from DC Floor Associates to Vice Presidents!"
- Sue Tylka, American Eagle Outfitters
"I want to thank you once again for performing at our Rapidigm Holiday Party in December. The feedback that I received from our employees and their guests was fantastic. In fact, the only negative comment that I heard from our group was they wished you could have stayed and entertained them longer!"
"As soon as we settle on a date for next year's party, I'd like to talk to you about performing for all of us "Rapidigmers" again."
- Rob Sagwitz, Director of Corporate Communications, Rapidigm Inc.
"Mr. Starkey entertained 450 guests on three floors of the History Center, amazing them with his magical abilities. His talents were greatly appreciated by all who attended our gala.

"I have booked him as a close up magician for events all over the Washington, DC area. Eric Starkey has proven to be highly entertaining, reliable and fully professional. He is a natural at dealing with people, and always conducts himself with courtesy and respect. Great stand-up magicians often begin as great close-up magicians, and I see Eric as having a future in both genres. He's prompt, polished and creative. Best of all, he keeps his audiences riveted. I would highly recommend Eric as an addition to any organization's special event."
