I have had the pleasure of viewing several of Ash's performances. He commands the attention of young and old alike. Not only does his magic mesmerize and delight the youngsters, but he elicits, "How did he do that?" murmurs from adults as well. But what Ash K. does the best, all while he performs eye-popping magic, is nearly instantaneously read his audience to deliver spontaneous, cutting (but with kindness) jokes, teasing just enough so that everyone can enjoy laughing at Ash and themselves. He does this with mixed audiences as well as with all-children, or all-adult audiences, where his humor becomes appropriately more racy (and funny!)
Fabulous entertainment for all! – Ash K. "The Pretty Good" was so much more than "pretty good", he was amazing! We saw his performance at a family Halloween party where his audience consisted of kids and adults (or kids-at-heart). He had the challenge of performing following Trick-or-Treating, and the kids actually sat still totally enthralled and engaged through the whole show... quite a feat in my opinion! His gift for interacting with children was fantastic to witness; he included children and adults in his act, and entertained all equally. Even before and after the show Ash K. mingled with the guests, performing up close tricks and telling jokes. Everyone was thoroughly charmed and entertained! Party guests were talking about Ash's wonderful act for days, and many plan to hire him for future events (birthday parties, school assemblies, fundraisers, etc.). Ash K. is total entertainment, you won't be disappointed!

Starring "Ash K. the Pretty Good" - Magician – This is of course my company; I'm Kevin, the often over-worked manager of "Ash K. the Pretty Good."
At this time, Citysearch doesn't have a way to "claim" a company, so some of the information is wrong, including the website! It's WhoAteTheRabbitMagic with that dot-com ending for corporate entertainment, and Ash4Kids (with the same ending) for parents and educators.
Our motto is simple, "Appropriate Entertainment for All, 1st Graders to Visiting Dignitaries."
Please visit the website for more information about Ash, and thanks for your interest!
Great Act – I was lucky enough to see Kevin, I mean Ashezani the Good (??), at a business event and he was funny and charming. Great idea to make a meeting or corporate event memorable. I'm usually not into magic acts but he was really good and kept my attention.
Great Entertainer With Charm and Skill – A good friend of mine hired Kevin for a private party, and I also saw him performing magic at a business function.
First, as a musician, I had a great time at the party, and he and his group made a huge splash. It was probably a difficult gig, because the audience was a wide mix of ages, and combined two rather different ethnic groups. The music was well matched to the flow of the evening. During cocktails, it added to the party vibe. During the dinner, it was subdued, and not too intrusive. Later, when people got up to dance, they were able to find that sweet spot so that everybody was able to relate to the beat, and get into it. Kevin spoke with a number of the guests, and found some special songs that went over really well. The musicianship was excellent, and the players were polite and well dressed.
At the business meeting, Kevin came out in his persona of Ashkenazi the Pretty Good. Not only were the tricks excellent, but he kept up a humorous dialogue which had us all in stitches. He's an excellent ad-libber, and relates really well with the crowd. The act is as much about the humor as it is about the magic.
I think Music and Magic would be an excellent choice for a wide variety of events.
Funny, professional and entertaining – He (and his partner) are great. They will keep a party going from wedding to corporate gathering. I would highly recommend him to help you give the extra kick to your event.
Great close-up magician with a wicked sense of humor – I was impressed not only by the magic but also the humor. He'd zing an audience member with a one-liner, and get away with it, because his wicked sense of humor is gentle at the same time. If you want a magician who'll keep your guests laughing, I'd highly recommend Kevin.
