I found Bob's website while searching for a 'walk around' magician to do some crowd work at my wife's surprise 35th birthday party. I wanted someone who could just mingle with the crowd & do sleight of hand & card tricks among the small groups gathered around. Bob worked the crowd as hoped for. He was a personable guy & all the tricks I witnessed were great. He stayed busy for about 3 hours as discussed. Would definitely hire again. Andrew, Belmont, MA.

Thanks for delivering on a great evening!   It was perfect for our event. You added to the enjoyment of many people. 
I really enjoyed the walk around part and appreciate how you made sure to get around to everyone. Phil Chernin, Natick, MA

Bob was the highlight of my wedding reception. R. Pence, Boston (Strolling)​

Bob was the highlight of my friend's 21st birthday party last weekend. He's very good at magic and also very funny, which is a wonderful combination for any party. His tricks/illusions are novel, unexpected and a delight to watch. Could not recommend any higher, and will certainly be hiring him again in the future. Andy Price (at Harvard)

Bob has bewitched audiences from New England to the Virgin Islands. With his easy manner, clever dialogue and hat and handful of tricks he has captivated youngsters and oldsters. We were amazed, delighted and mystified by this magician! Ed and Penny Vaughn, Orange, CT

Bob Filene absolutely inspired our 6 and 9 year old grandsons with a Magic Show on St. Croix. What fun he has given them - - and us. His manner and presentation delights young and old alike. Adults are left with the question: "How did he do that?"

"Self proclaimed as "Magic For Smart People," the performance did not disappoint. The entire audience was baffled by Bob's sleight of hand, and his witty jokes in between kept even the most skeptical viewers entertained. . . . This sometimes psychic, always entertaining trickster clearly knows his craft and how to use it to the audience's delight." The Somerville News

Bob was perfect for my event! His show "Magic for Smart People" was great for the MIT audience at the formal event. He was very easy to work with and customized his performance to meet our time and venue needs. He did a 30 minute stage show and then walked around the audience and performed additional tricks for groups of 2-3 people up close. The performance was a huge hit. Highly recommended.

Bob is an amazing magician and very friendly performer! He was on time and professional. His illusions were exciting and varied from rope tricks to exciting mentalist tricks. Not only is he a talented magician, he is also a comedian. His jokes had the crowd in stitches. I hope to hire him for another birthday party, perhaps even my 29th birthday.

Watching Bob perform his magic brought me back to being a kid again. I was not only entertained with Bob's presentation but I was brought to a place were I believed in the impossible again. Grandparents as well as children are entertained and captivated with Bob's magic and personal style.  Ginny Peck, N. Woodstock, NH. 

Bob Filene delivered a delightful performance of his "Magic for Smart People" show at our senior center on July 29 and those who attended are still smiling and wondering "how did he do that?"! Bob is very easy to work with -- responsive, clear about his setup requirements and well prepared. The audience of more than 60 participants was engaged from the first minute to the very last. The laughter and applause overflowed into our lobby throughout the show. I would heartily recommend Bob.

Bob's magic tricks just keep getting better - not that I could ever figure them out, but his latest "think of a card" trick just blew my socks off – not to mention everyone else in the room.   Christine Stewart, Boston, MA      

Spellbinding!  And, not just for kids. He had about 40 of us oldsters with our mouths agape. Everyone wanted to see more of his magic. 
Richard Wood, Brighton, MA

We had Bob do a show at our son's 4th birthday party. I have never seen a group of 2-5 year olds so engrossed and mesmerized. I don't think they stooped laughing for the entire time. Just as importantly the adults had a great time as well. I would highly recommend Bob the Magic Guy.
