Brian Richards was awesome! Our kids loved him. From set up to clean up, everything went very smoothly. The show was funny, education and appropriate. We had it for our field day and both the teachers and the students loved it. Brian was great and we cannot wait to have him back for the Math Magical Show.

Amazing show! Very informative and funny. Kids were engaged and really seemed to enjoy it. He was able to relate the importance of nutrition and exercise to students in a fun way!

Brian Richards was AMAZING! He had both groups (K-2 and 3-5) laughing hysterically at his magic and jokes, and very engaged throughout his bFueled portion. Our nurse has a Strive for Five program every year in the Spring, where students track their fruits and veggies, “striving for five” every day. This program was a great kickoff to her program (a great bonus!)
I also love how he altered his program a bit for the older kids. The K-2 crew loved his silliness and laughed hysterically at him! And he appropriately changed his tone a bit for the older kids. Because, you know, they think they are way too cool for too much silliness! I got messages from parents at every grade level telling me their kids came home talking about the great program they saw. And I even had one little girl approach me when I was out to thank me for bringing in such a great program!
Most impressive, however, was his command of the audience. As you know, I’m always a little worried about behavior and attentiveness because teachers are not present at some of our performances. We had ONLY parent volunteers monitoring yesterday and the students were STILL amazing. I 100% attribute this to Brian’s ability to keep them engaged and laughing, every single minute. I would HIGHLY recommend Brian to any school. His message is important and well communicated to his audience in a very age appropriate way.
Feel free to have any schools thinking about booking Brian to reach out to me for a reference.
