...referring to what you do as "Magic," is certainly insufficient to describe the often charming and always astonishing affect you have on your audience. "Magicians" do "tricks," what you do is so far beyond that and unfortunately, it is sometimes indescribable. Read more >

One other regret I have is that we never thought to "Video" the many startling Presentations you have developed for both me; while I was in the "Corporate World" and my Clients over the past twenty years of "Consulting." But even without Video, how could I ever forget "The Old Salt" and the many other "Characters" who have inhabited that frame of yours!

Have used Jim's magic as the theme for both sales and marketing meetings for years with great success. His ability to weave the meeting message into his performance is amazing. An outstanding magician and creative marketer!

Jim really wowed our guests at our wedding, making it a truly memorable reception for everyone. The illusions were incredible, including pouring champagne into a glass, while the glass floated in midair! Having Jim perform definitely added something which made our reception unique.

This is to commend you for the outstanding magic performance at Chinet's national sales meeting in San Antonio. There were thirty-five managers in attendance including the CEO of North American operations and the Consumer Business Unit EVP. Your entire presentation was totally amazing, and the way you tied in our marketing messages was very effective. Read more >

Loved the way you helped us introduce our "Cut Crystal" plastic drinking cups, and Chinet Casuals paper plates. Very cool!

Also great how you had several managers participate in various tricks and personalized the performance with humorous stories about many of them. You did this with little more than a quick briefing. I heartily recommend you to any group looking for a professional magician with the ability to become part of the group.

Jim Bodine is a great and entertaining magician. He comes to our little remote beach in Costa Rica each year, and puts on a show for the children at the school. They flock there to see the show, and enjoy the audience participation. Read more >

He has also put on shows at a few of the restaurants for adults, and we always look forward to attending them. One time he came out on our boat for a river cruise and his magic entertainment made the trip a very special one, in such an intimate and unusual venue.

I have had Mr. Bodine perform at my house twice. I was admittedly skeptical the first time around, as I had not seen a magic show in some time. I was, to say the least, pleasantly surprised. We had a party of about 60 people, aging from just a few years old to some in their sixties. The magic act kept everyone involved, and wondering what would happen next. Some "tricks" were clearly aimed at the kids, while others at an older audience, but they all kept us entertained and wondering. Read more >

We had him back a year later for a repeat performance. He again performed for all ages, but with a slightly more "older crowd" focus. While still holding the imagination of the kids, the adults were clearly amazed.

If you are looking for entertainment for any and all ages, I would strongly recommend Mr. Bodine. He puts on a professional show, manages to entertain across multiple age groups and will leave you wondering "how did he do that?" for a long time to come. I plan to have him back again and I bet you will too…

As the chairperson of an Eastern Star Banquet, I was happy to have you provide the entertainment for Banner Chapter's event to honor Worthy Matron, Marilyn Bodkin. Her family embraced magic and you were a perfect fit. Read more >

The banquet guests were from our Chapter and 20 other chapters in the area. Many of these guests were doing a banquet circuit. It is sometimes a challenge for the entertainment to keep the crowd with them. You did a fantastic job of keeping everyone engaged.

The committee was pleased to hear great reviews of the event. Thank you for being part of this memorable evening for our Chapter.

The magic show you provided at our Annual Virgo Party on Labor Day weekend was the hit of the day.

You kept all ages of guests involved and mystified. Our friends still talk about the show months later- hoping we will have you at our next event. Read more >

The variety of illusions kept the attention of even the skeptic 20 year olds in the crowd. The children of course wanted the front row and were ever so anxious to participate.

We all enjoyed the presentation.

Thank you again.

Tiger Maguire, Henrico NC


I would very much like to thank you Jim for the wonderfully entertaining evening. My father's surprise birthday party was made even more special with your magic tricks. Everyone was just delighted from my 11 year old daughter to my 70 year old father. You have such a knack to include all the party participants! Read more >

People are still talking about how exciting the evening was. It was such a special evening made that much more enjoyable by your performance. Thank you again!
