Mingling Magic with Brendan Dooley
Our team are STILL talking about the show - we all loved it! ... keep reading Harcourts
Fantastic show, got everyone up and laughing!"
What would maybe be a tough audience, Brendan broke the ice. Within 2 seconds the room was in hysterics
Brendan was an absolute highlight of the conference. Brendan struck a chord with so many people, both with his comedy and his personal story. Such a clever magician as well and many delegates commented they had never seen a magician perform live before (or no one of Brendan's caliber) and they were truly amazed! The evening social function was just the icing on the cake for those that attended that. Brendan delivered an extremely polished keynote that incorporated very clever comedy and one-liners, incredible magic tricks as well as a truly humbling and inspirational personal story to tell. Every single person left the auditorium beaming! All in all, we really appreciated the time Brendan took to research how elements of teaching/students/Oamaru could be incorporated into his keynote. That absolutely gave him the x-factor performance.
Great entertainment to break up an awards evening, so it warmed the evening up with fun. The customised experience was really special and allowing us to deliver a message in a special way was very unique and a great experience, with such a short brief you really worked your magic! Would definitely recommend a customised message delivery as this is very special and unique and from an event manager point of view, very cool! The special gift is the centrepiece of our marketing table so that we can all remember this great night, thank you!
Super satisfying to work with Brendan for the second time round. He is so professional and can really personalise content. He increased the energy and engagement, everyone was amazed. They were watching the event over again to try and figure out his magic. It was the conversation the next day in our online team meetings. Absolutely recommend Brendan, his magic is mind blowing and his energy is so infectious as part of any event that you have.
Loved it. Brendan was a great host. Loved how he involved the virtual audience and the trick at the end capturing the date and time was amazing.
Absolutely blown away. Brendan was amazing, he worked well within our brief and was respectful of our whole audience. Rave reviews from everyone. Was entertaining, personable and engaging. 10/10!
We couldn't have been more thrilled with Brendan than we were. He did such a phenomenal job from start to finish and he was a BIG HIT! he audience LOVED him. We've never had so many rave reviews about an MC before. Brendan was memorable. He kept the audience entertained, amused and held their attention throughout the night. Nothing was too much of a problem for him, he was so easy to work with, low maintenance, flexible with last-minute changes and happy to accommodate all our needs. He was hilarious, read the audience amazingly, targeted the right people, was respectful to our guests and knowledgeable about the event. His talent has no bounds and he easily transitioned from close up magic in the pre-function space to MC to magician to witty raconteur back to MC - the perfect package. He was the perfect choice for MC and entertainer, he was so much fun to work with, and is the consummate professional. 1,000% would I recommend Brendan as both an MC and an entertainer. I would not hesitate to say "go for it, you won't be sorry". He's just brilliant!
Phenomenal. Without Brendan these two back to back conferences and award nights would not have been the roaring successes that they were. His humour, organisational skills, and insane magic, kept the event flowing and the audience engaged. The event went from being a little unsure and disjointed, to being connected, enthused, and absolutely together. He was so easy to work with and is an absolute professional with a knack for reading the room and adjusting his delivery accordingly. Our group was overflowing with positive comments and feedback including one attendee who grabbed the mic for an impromptu thank you followed by an audience standing ovation. We have already locked him in for 2023 in Australia before we'd even finished the 2022 event! Don't hesitate, just hire him.
Brendan was a great asset to our party. He was relaxed and easy to work with adjusting to any changes. He was quick witted, funny and very clever. From the mingling magic acts to the full show it was very impressive.
