“I wanted to drop you a line and let you know I thoroughly enjoyed Hypnolarious. The evening flowed seamlessly, the music was obviously selected with much consideration toward a multi generational audience... it was a thoroughly entertaining evening.”
Bobby Bradford - Mo Awards Chairman
"Well its been nearly three months since Sydney and our members are still going on about how great you were. As an event organiser I can hope for nothing more than what you delivered (and exceeded) in terms of expectations. Thank you for your generous attention and remarkable ‘services’ and for a night that will long be remembered by all who attended your show."
Sarah Carnovale - Australian Glass & Glazing Association
"It was great to have you there. You were a hit!"
Nicole Latham - The Argyle & Löwenbräu Promotions Manager
“All went home happy with laughs under their belt.”
Silvana Marangoni - Education Program Officer St George Division of General Practice
“We had a great time, everyone was really happy. Thanks for your performance!”

“Now I’m not normally a magic sort of guy and the thought of being hypnotized and made to do unusual things simply terrifies me, you know its not for me. But seriously I asked PiP to do a few tricks at a company function, then I ran into him at the Russell Brand party at the Ivy and then he performed at my 40th birthday party and bugger me if I haven’t become his biggest fan. He’s just off-beat enough to be engaging, he’s talented enough to be convincing and he’s determined enough to become a star. PiP is a magician because he can turn “non-magician” types into true fans of the genre. He’s really good. Use him. If only I could figure out how he does it? Magic, I spose.”
