Ed Smoot was WONDERFUL! He arrived on time, was very professional and started making the party a success immediately! We hired Ed to perform strolling magic for our son's 1st birthday party. We had a lot of children (in fact many more came then we had anticipated). The children were hysterical - the sounds of laughter barreled through our home. The kids were enthralled, hanging on to every word and every trick! Ed also made balloon animals at the end. We would hired Ed again and again! He kept the children's attention solidly for an hour.....that's truly magic in itself! We heard so many compliments about how children and adults had enjoyed the Magic of Ed Smoot!!
