Kent with Illusions Plus is amazing. I had guests of all ages attending this event and he left everyone in AWWW!! He was very easy to work with when arranging this event and made things very smooth for me. I will hire Kent again and I look forward to every one of his shows.

A great package deal

We hired Kent to do a magic show at our county fair, followed by balloon twisting. He also brought the giant inflatables to set up after his show. Kent's show included humor that may have been above some of the children's heads, but had the adults laughing. His magic was great, and he had a constant line for the balloon animals all night. The giant inflatables were a big draw for the kids, but they are also a lot of work to set up and tear down; be sure to have a crew lined up to help. Kent and his wife were very friendly and easy to work with...Thanks again!

Kent's illusions were magical
I booked Kent on the recommendation of a friend having never witnessed a performance of his. I was very pleased with his professionalism and the quality of his presentation. I was most pleased with the way he connected with all ages that had gathered at our church picnic.

Lots of fun and laughter

We hired Kent Messmer for our daughter's 4th birthday. The show was a HUGE hit. Not only were the children laughing and having a wonderful time, but the adults were giggling and having a blast too. My guests were telling me what a great show it was all night long. I am still getting messages telling me how much they loved the magic show. Kent is so professional and a pleasure to work with. He made such an effort to make the day special for my daughter and her friends. Thanks for making this birthday a special memory

Kent helped make a wish come true

At our recent Waffles & Wishes event, Kent stole the show with his personality and professionalism. He was spot on when it came to revealing to our wish child that his wish for a Man Cave was going to come true. His illusions and card tricks set the stage for an entertaining morning filled with magical suprises and awes from the crowd.

Kent's show was very entertaining and just good clean family fun!! All ages enjoyed the show. We were so glad to have him travel so far and work so late of an event. We would recommend Illusions Plus for any family style event!

We booked Kent for a birthday party for our 6 year old. He was fantastic! He was funny and engaging, the kids loved him, so did the adults! If you are looking for a family friendly magician/comedian, Kent is your guy! Awesome!

Very entertaining and appropriate for our group
Kent's show was great for our group at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd. He was entertaining for kids and adults - young and old. His show was just the right length and he kept things flowing well. His inclusion of the audience was just perfect. Thanks for a wonderful show.

Kent did such a great job! His act was clean and we laughed hard. This was a big Woman's Day event that included young girls as well. Kent did such a great job at keeping all ages interacting with the acts. We all enjoyed it and had fun.

Kent was a true profesional in all aspects of the party. His magic was great and the kids couldn't figure out how he did any of his tricks. The games were great and he and his staff were very entertaining.
I would have Kent do any party or get together for my children again anytime.

Kent is pure genius when it comes to mixing a magician show with a children's birthday party. He entertains a group of kids SO well ... and his great sense of humor even has 6-year-olds laughing their pants off! Kent also has a great selection of modern and old-fashioned festival-type bowling / clown arcade games in a large carpeted basement ... so with his magic show, plus the games, plus a party area to eat/drink and open presents, it really is the best indoor-type party you could ask for in getting 10-20 kids together on a Saturday afternoon. Keep up the great stuff, Kent: Billings loves you!

Kent was extremely professional. The kids loved it - the parents loved it. He was very funny, played well with the kids-not over there heads, nobody could figure out how he did it. It was a very successful event.

Kent was AMAZING!!! I am the PTA President at Bitterroot Elementary. We held a Read-A-Thon as a fund raiser in February. As a reward to our students, if they reached their minutes read goal, they would get to see their principal sawed in half at the Dinner Theater Show we had planned a couple of weeks later. The kids read 20,000 minutes more than they were required to. I guess they REALLY wanted to see him sawed in half!! Kent worked with us on so many levels, such an easy going guy!! We printed 300 tickets and sold out almost 1 week before the show! The kids (old and young) were totally amazed, laughed all night and had a blast!! I think it is awsome that he got the kids involved on stage! What a memory for them to talk about for years to come!! Simply amazing and truely entertaining!! We will definately be asking Kent to do more assemblies, shows, acts, etc at our school!! Well worth it!! Thanks Kent!

Habitat for Humanity Mid-Yellowstone Valley hired Kent to do close up magic tableside, as well as do a 30 minute show on a platform for our annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. He did an excellent job, having great connection with the audience. He is upbeat and funny. He does great illusions and had the crowd clapping and shouting "amazing" every trick. He selected several attendees to participate in some of the illusions and was interactive with the audience while doing them.

Many positive comments were heard from our guests. I only wish we could have had him for a longer amount of time to be able to see even more of what he "had up his sleeve!"
