Richard Darshwood is a true professional! I hired him for my birthday party which had an assortment of things happening from burlesque, palm readings, a full dance floor and DJs. Yet all I heard from my guest, “OMG that magician,” “he just melted my mind,” “How dare he keep the secrets of the universe to himself, ” “Titus that magician is 10/10, do you know his venmo?”. I can go on for a while about the compliments that were told to me, but I’d like to tell you about his professionalism. As I was hosting I would catch Richard commanding large groups of 10+ people full of captivated faces with loud music in the background all the way to smaller groups of 2 in more relaxed areas if the party and I would hear the screams of excitement once the punchline of his tricks hit. You can put him anywhere and he will make magic happen (pun intended) and if you’re ever worried about your function being a little underwhelming, the secret sauce to take it to the top and leave everyone spellbound is to contact Richard Darshwood. Personally, Richard I’d like to thank you so much for working with me on such short notice, you were incredible and my friends are still talking about it weeks later. Thank you!He is the real deal

We hired Richard Darshwood to come do roaming close up magic for our end of the year company party. He was absolutely fantastic. All of our guests raved about his performance. He was very professional as well. He showed up on time and went straight to it. I would definitely recommend him for another group in the future.

Darshwood is an absolutely incredible entertainer. I’ve seen numerous performances of his around the louisville, KY and southern Indiana area, and have even had the good fortune running into him out and about a few times. I would recommend him to anyone that needs an eloquent and inspiring professional magician and entertainer.
