  • From the moment we first spoke to your show coordinator, we jut knew this was the program for us!!! Everyone was so kind and helpful as we booked this great show! When Brian Richards came to our school he was professional, organized, and friendly. Once the performance began Mr. Richards was absolutely ASTONISHING!! He held the attention of our 350 kindergarten thru 5th grade students the entire time! He was funny, energetic, and best of all AMAZINGLY entertaining! We will certainly recommend him and this company to others and would LOVE to book one of your other shows for our school in the future. Thank you for making the final activity of our Read Across America day such a SUCCESS!!!

  • Not only was the entire audience laughing from the start but so was my daughter, who is 5. There were moments, and there was a lot, where I was laughing out loud too!

  • This was an AWESOME presentation! Our students are still talking about it a week later! We appreciated the wonderful message of the importance of reading,  mixed with great magic. The children were mesmerized from the minute Brian began and he kept them captivated until the very end. It was wonderful to hear the students laughing, see their faces light up with smiles, and to witness some students participate with Brian up front. We loved this assembly and hope to have another one next year! Thanks, Brian for bringing such a great program.
