Absolutely Amazing!!! Chris is an amazing magician. Not only is his magic impressive, he has a remarkable personality that really captures his audience.

Everyone had nothing but wonderfully positive things to say about Chris and his magic while he entertained them during the wedding. We really appreciate his talent, expertise and energy!

Joe & Elizabeth's Wedding

Fox Hollow Caterers, Woodbury, N.Y.

We hired Chris Anthony to perform at our Wedding, and he was a great addition to our wedding’s success. We first saw Chris at another event and just knew that we had to have him at our wedding. We were thrilled that he was available. Our Family and friends were truly entertained, and enjoyed your performance. Everyone was left scratching their heads, wondering ” How did he do that?” Chris is a true professional and a gentleman, and it was a pleasure having him be a part of our special day. We can’t wait to have another event, so we can have him back again.

Chris Anthony is a true professional. Chris performed during cocktail hour at my wedding reception and was the talk of the wedding. His street magic is top notch. He always involved the guests in his tricks and was able to manage the incredible amount of personalities with class and grace. I would absolutely recommend Chris Anthony because you will not only get an amazing magician, but you will get somebody who will communicate and accommodate your requests. He treats you with such class and dignity and you can see that he truly cares that your event will be special. Chris, you are awesome. Thanks for helping make our day great!!!

Ted & Shannon’s Wedding

Cescaphe Ballroom, Philadelphia, PA

Chris Anthony is Amazing!!! 

I have seen Chris Anthony perform three times and have been impressed each time. First, we interviewed him for a client’s wedding. We were happy to see that he was pr…ofessional, friendly and highly talented. Even our skeptical groom loved his amazing tricks. Of course, we hired him for their September 2013 wedding. There we saw him entertain over 100 guests successfully. The room was filled with laughter and incredulous faces. Most importantly, the bride and groom were very happy they hired him and enjoyed the special tricks he prepared for them.
My event planning partner and I also loved the performance and hired him for our team appreciation dinner. Once again, everyone was blown away by Chris Anthony. I have now seen him three times and can’t wait to see him again!

Josie Michelle Events

Event Planners & Designers,

If we could sum up Chris’ performance in one word, it would be very simple. AMAZING! We hired Chris to perform up close magic at our wedding for our guests, and boy did he deliver. Our wedding took place in Philadelphia, and despite the distance for Chris, he was extremely flexible, timely and well prepared. 
When we first decided we wanted to have a magician come in, we spent a lot of time researching, reading reviews, watching videos and actually meeting a few in person. However, when I found Chris’ website and watched a few of his videos, I knew he would be the perfect fit for our guests. While we didn’t have a chance to meet before the day of the wedding, Chris was always available by phone/email if I had any questions. On top of looking for someone who was a skilled magician, we wanted someone with an engaging personality who could interact and joke around with the guests and Chris really delivered on that as well. We didn’t know we were getting a comedian on top of a skilled magician! We originally booked Chris just for the cocktail hour, then a week before we asked if he would stay for an additional two hours after the cocktail hour (during dinner/dessert) and by the end of the night we had him stay an additional hour on top of that b/c everybody was raving about him. As for the magic, it was top notch and the variety was absolutely amazing. We had a big breakfast the morning after the reception and it seemed like every person we talked to had a different trick performed on them, and all were equally dumbfounded by how he did each one. He even had a few special tricks that were personalized for the bride and groom.
For anyone looking for something fun/unique at a wedding (or any event for that matter), look no further than Chris Anthony. He made our night even more magical, and it’s something that our friends and family will be talking about for years to come. Thanks Chris!

Jarett & Charlene's Wedding

Union Trust Catering Hall, Philadelphia, PA

Chris was very professional. He showed up half hour before start time. My guests raved about his magic. He was very entertaining and I saw things that I never thought I would see. It was a perfect touch to my wedding cocktail hour. He even performed special customized magic tricks for my bridal party and I. We were all blown away. He has charm and knows how to put on a great show. I would definitely hire him again for future events and I highly recommend him. Still trying to figure out how he managed to have my name and my new husband’s name on the dollar bill.

Gilbert & Taina's Wedding

Marina del Rey Caterers , Throggs Neck, N.Y.

We hired Chris Anthony to perform during cocktail hour at our wedding in June 2015 and he was nothing short of fantastic. Not only did he arrive early but he stayed a little after the agreed upon time to make sure everyone got to see him at least once. We were very impressed by his professionalism and of course his magic was extraordinary! Everyone we spoke with offered nothing but positive reviews. The tricks were up close and varied from person to person so no one saw the exact same illusion twice. Chris even provided us with personalized tricks for the bride and groom. Everyone agreed that he provided a fun and wonderful start to the wedding reception and added that little something to create a unique and memorable experience. We would highly recommend Chris for any function as he kept us all entertained and bewildered by his magical abilities!

Adam & Tina’s Wedding

Waldorf Astoria, New York, N.Y.

Perfect Experience! We are fans of Chris for a long time so it seemed only fitting for us to hire him for the cocktail hour at our wedding. We didn’t tell our guests to they were surprised to find out that he wasn’t just a guest but an AMAZINGLY talented magician. Chris mingled amongst our guests and performed amazing, slight of hand tricks. Our guests still talk about “that crazy awesome magician”. I’ve seen a bunch of his performances and I’m amazed every…single…time…

If you are looking for a very talented, very funny, very friendly, very affordable magician…hire CHRIS! He’s the best.

Cocktail Hour Magic!! Perfect for a Wedding!   

I hadn’t considered the idea of having a magician entertain my guests at my wedding’s cocktail hour but then when I saw Chris in action one night at a restaurant and I asked him what kind of events he does and he mentioned weddings, I knew it was such a great idea! My guests LOVED him! They all said he was awesome and so entertaining! Chris was able to get groups together and mingling during cocktail hour. His tricks were a great conversation starter for strangers and small groups and he definitely raised the level of excitement and fun in the room! Not to mention he made everyone smile and laugh…and stunned them all! My guests told me they will never forget it! Chris also made sure to move throughout the venue and hit as many people as possible during the hour! His magic is not cheesy or immature at all. It is the best I’ve seen, definitely top level professional magic! You will be more than impressed! Worth every dollar!

Jason & Eve's Wedding

F.E.A.S.T. Caterers at Round Hill, Washingtonville, N.Y.

Awesome magician on a magical night. Chris by far, with of course the exclusion of the bride was the most enjoyed part of our celebration. From all the grandparents and elders of our families to the youngest of our guest and family members, Chris was the topic of discussion and awe. His magic show was a great addition to our wedding and is still remembered with a smile. Chris is a consummate professional and I would highly recommend Chris and his performance to anyone looking for the best.

Thank you Chris!! In a crowd of sophisticated young creative “brooklynites”, you made them believe in magic again!

Anyone would be lucky to have you at their special event!!!!!Still talking about you days later……

Marina Del Rey Caterers, Throggs Neck, N.Y.

Chris was exactly the person we had expected and hoped for as the focal point of our wedding reception entertainment. Not only was the bride and groom totally thrilled and entertained by his magic but also all of the guests who saw him. I asked everyone what they thought and every single person was blown away by his card and various other magic tricks. Chris was there before the event and stayed after his time to the delight of my guests. His professional skills and mingling style were great entertainment to enhance our cocktail hour and reception as a whole. Thank you Chris!!

Current at Chelsea Piers, New York, N.Y.

Chris Anthony is one of the most talented, professional, and nice people I have ever met in my life. Chris absolutely blew away myself, my wife, and all of the guests at our wedding with his amazing magic and storytelling abilities. His magic is mystifying, his personality is magnetic, and his charm is invaluable. We all loved Chris so much and will 100% use him for another event in the near future. I wouldn’t even consider another magician. Chris was super flexible with his start time, his price was VERY reasonable, and he is just such a kind, pleasant, and down to earth guy. Do yourself a favor and hire him for your next event – you won’t be disappointed!
