I hired stuart for magic show and ballon making. He came 15 minutes prior to the event. Magic show was wonderful. I am happy that he involved the kids in the ticks. I saw him without making balloons and asked him to give kids extra if they want, and he said NO, because everyone will want two then. Two families told me before leaving that they asked him to make one more ballon for their kid and he said NO. A party host does not want to hear this from guests. He told me before leaving 'give me five rating or else tell me right now', well, I don't think its right to ask for 5 rating, you have to earn it. I recommend him for magic show but not for balloon making.
