Brian used a combination of magic, humor and interactivity with the audience to get his very serious message across to our elementary school students.  The students were hysterical most of the time, but they understood the  importance of eating at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. He was a big hit!

Our students and faculty just raved about Brian and his nutrition assembly!  The kids were engaged the whole time and the faculty and staff were very impressed with the content!  We would love to have him back for the Reading assembly sometime!

Brian is a true entertainer, and a magician.  He is also a great teacher!   The feedback from teachers and students has been very positive. The topic is pertinent and relevant.  I recommend this assembly and Brian very highly.  Well worth the investment.

Very interactive with students and staff. Highlighted "color your plate" with the five colors of fruit and vegetables. Nutrition magic was also incorporated in the message.  Well received by the school community. Teachers commented it would be great to have the presenter return to UPE.

Mr. Richards was very professional. He arrived to set up well ahead of time and put on two great shows. The kids seemed to have a wonderful time. Lots of laughter and learning took place. My 4th grader said the show was \\"totally awesome,\\" and my kindergartener still talks about the various concepts he discussed, such as the importance of fiber and different vitamins from fruits and veggies.

Brian did a marvelous show. He was funny, kept the children interested, taught a valuable life lesson on good nutrition, and stayed within our time constraints. My son bought raisins with his lunch that day - the first time ever! And he came home later that day searching for bananas, and at dinner requested an apple! That was clearly a result of the message Brian shared in his program. Excellent show.

This performance was a great culminating activity for Nutrition Month. It reviewed the importance of healthy fruits and vegetables in a very age-appropriate and entertaining way. Wonderful show for the students! Just the right amount of magic and facts rolled into one!

The children enjoyed the assembly very much. There was a lot of student interaction which they all enjoyed. Even the teachers and administration were impressed by how Brian was able to keep the students attention at all times. We will definitely look into having more of his programs in the future.

This was our first family fitness night and having your program included absolutely made the night even better. Brian kept the audience amused and entertained but also provided great information. It was a terrific show!

The show was amazing! The kids were hysterical laughing, and learning at the same time! They left the assembly singing the 5 a day song and telling each other how fun the show was. The teachers at the school were just as impressed. I will definitely book this show again, and recommend it to friends at other schools!
