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.

  • 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!

It was impressive how he was able to seamlessly adapt his act across the various age groups - it gave all of our students a really fun way to decompress and celebrate the upcoming holidays. Thank you for helping us pull off a magical holiday celebration for the students at Baylis. It was a BIG hit! We hope to bring Brian back for a different program in the 20/21 academic year.
