Thank you for your high-energy performance at our 75th anniversary celebration! Our associates were amazed by Rick's abilities and excited that they were able to participate by getting on stage and being a part of the show too! Rick captured the fun and energy we wanted our parties to have, and we were glad the crowd got on their feet, ready to celebrate!

“Hilarious.” “Outstanding.” “One of a kind.” These were just a few of the compliments for Rick Smith’s performance at a large private event at my house. I personally was also extremely impressed with Mr. Smith’s illusions and magic tricks, his show had the people in attendance laughing and highly entertained. I have hosted hundreds of events over the years that have included top notch entertainers from all over the country and I would rate Rick’s show that night as memorable and entertaining as any of them.

Rick’s performance was the highlight of our annual Acro Tool & Die Company employee Christmas party. Guests were amazed by your up-close magic and card tricks… they are still talking and laughing about the brilliant stage show. (I'm sure the restaurant is still finding cards you threw!) Rick’s style, humor and talent was great for all ages; he kept our guests engaged and wanting to participate in the show. Thank you for making our gathering a memorable one. We look forward to working with you again soon!

As a new program for the Indians, Rick was charged with helping to make “Rally Alley” a must-attend event each week. Rick delivered with an audience-engaging magic show that captivated “Rally Alley” attendees, providing a cornerstone show that kept fans in the new event space as the Indians educated them on the excitement and value “Rally Alley” offered. Rick’s high energy and genuine approach to his audience creates a welcoming effect that pulls in his audience naturally.”

Phenomenal, amazing, surprising, astounding are only a few ways to describe Rick Smith Jr.'s illusions and magic. You have to see it to believe it.

Rick Smith Jr. is not only one of the greatest entertainers in the state of Ohio, but he is a performer who goes above and beyond the art of entertaining. I have had the opportunity and honor to have this great magician perform at St. Peter Chanel High School during the wonderful cerebral palsy Christmas party. Rick interacts with all of the kids and he has this power to allow everyone who attends to forget about the disability which is cerebral palsy and allow these kids to become entertainers as well. I have always said that Rick Smith Jr. will one day become "too big" to perform at our annual party because Rick has it all; style, personality and he is a true entertainer. Every year, not only does Rick share his magic with us, but he inspires us as well. The way Rick performs his magic is a sight to see and it is a way that allows all of us to see a wonderful illusion and that illusion allows all of us to be cast with in the spell of what is Rick Smith Jr. And that spell is always a wonderful and talented performer who truly knows his magic and knows how to keep us wanting to see more.

Rick Smith, Jr. is one of those rare entertainers who can captivate and enthrall both a small intimate crowd tableside AND a large gathering of thousands at a large event. I had the pleasure of hiring Rick for a very important Theater Grand re-opening in 2008 and he completely captivated the crowd of 650 people with his charm, wit and talented sleight of hand. Everyone LOVED him and I noticed he had a following of guests who couldn't get enough of his card throwing talent—a pied piper of the entertainment industry! The event was an award winning knock-out, the theater was stunning, and Rick's strolling ease throughout the dinner tent was a perfect addition. Do yourselves a favor, and hire this guy! Take my word for it--and I'm a picky Event Diva....Rick Smith, Jr. ROCKS!

I hired Rick to entertain at a large 300 person society annual event. We had a 3 hour social gathering at the beginning, and Rick just wandered through the crowd entertaining small groups at a time. He was the perfect entertainment for this crowd. I have hosted this event for the last 10 years, and Rick was by far, the best entertainment hired to date. We received so many positive comments, we plan to have him back again soon.

When I first saw Rick perform, I was blown away! He was great with the audience, so fun to watch, and excellent with his craft. I was even more impressed when he told us that he's the world record holder for card throwing for both speed and distance (Wow!). Some time later, I visited his website to get more information; I was interested in having him perform at my young daughter's birthday party and was so pleased to see that his services were well within my budget. He returned my inquiry immediately and we set up the date (I was so excited to have "The" Rick Smith, Jr. perform for us!). Everything was awesome--Rick was very friendly to work with, extremely punctual and amazing with the audience, both kids and adults. I couldn't have asked for more. I look forward to seeing another of his large-scale performances

After my nephew's birthday party, Rick performed card tricks for the adults and we were all blown away. I immediately wanted him for my daughters Bat Mitzvah but only for the adults. Rick's tricks were the talk of the evening and several of my friends have asked me for his number so they could have him at their Bar/Bat Mitzvah or event.

Rick is a detailed oriented performer who ensures everyone no matter what the age enjoys his shows and knowledge as a magician. He seems to know how to draw even the toughest crowd into his web of illusions and tricks and always generates lots of laughs and finishes up with people wanting more...

I’ve used Rick Smith for a couple of our corporate events. From one-on-one interaction to larger corporate audiences, Rick does a great job as an entertainer. His card throwing ability is nothing short of spectacular and his card tricks are simply amazing. He is very personable and goes the extra mile to ensure everyone is engaged in his performance.

Rick, Thanks for providing us an awesome performance at Precision Environmental 25th Anniversary celebration. The people are still talking about it. Even though we told them you were coming, they had no idea from one act to the next, what they were in store for. It capped a really great night for all of us. Also, besides the entertainment, you were great to plan with and carry out the logistics of working in a venue that was not exactly tailored to your needs.
