We continue to have comments on your amazing illusions, we have had many and most seem to be “How did he do that?!” I have included a few comments you might like to read – “Excellent, very entertaining, how did he do that?” – “How did he do that, I watched him do it the first time and decided to see it again to see if I could catch him. He did it exactly the same again 10 times over and I still couldn’t see how he did it!” Julie & Ian – Newly Weds<br/> Sean’s approach to the art of magic, illusion and entertainment has taken him around the world and he persistently strives for perfection in every way to ensure that he continues to exceed all expectations.
