Dear Mike,
On behalf of Brady and the Matsunaga family, thank you so much for making his 2-year old birthday party a huge success!  Everyone loved the magic show.  We have wonderful pictures of wide-eyed, jaw-dropping pictures of the kids (and adults) who thoroughly were mesmerized by your magic! 

Apologies for the change in time.  As in most events, the best laid out plans makes way for adjustments, and our party was no exception.  However, we sincerely appreciate your accommodating us.

Also, please thank Brad for his assistance with everything and also helping with the music.  With all the planning, we overlooked that and am so grateful for this.  Also, tell him no hard feelings about his mistaken identity of me.  My sister and I are 12 years apart and lots of people have said that.  But know that I’m still young in heart and even willing to jump into a dinosaur costume all for the fun of the party and the kids.

Best wishes and blessings in all that you do!       -Pat Matsunaga

Kind email from Happy Grandma, July 23, 2016, Bishop Museum/Atherton Halau

Mahalo for our latest 5 Star Revue on YELP!
Thank you for kind words from client "Kamaile"
4/30/2016 *****
I'm so glad I booked Mike! Wanted to add entertainment to my son's first birthday party so I scoured through yelp reviews looking for something both kids and adults could enjoy. Came across Mike Ching's reviews and booked him based on his yelp rating! 

He was professional and efficient while talking to him over the phone and through email. Not to mention his website gave me a clearer understanding of what services he offered.
On the day of the event he arrived about 45-min before the start of the party and set up his own backdrop which added a more festive look to our stage. 

He provided strolling magic and I'm going to call it a "variety" show. He had my guests laughing in amazement from the start to finish. He also kept my guests informed of activities and other performances throughout the party with his "LITE MC" service he offered free with the purchase of an entertainment package. 

The kicker was the "balloon surprise finale". He had all "60-something" children and even adults running around chasing balloons. Thank you Mike. My son's party wouldn't have been such a success without you!

   I rarely write reviews on Yelp, but just had to because Mike just recently did my son's first birthday party. He was Awesome!  Very professional, showed up an hour early to set up and talk story with us to say hi and figure out our plans and ideas for the party.  

   Very accommodating, did balloons for the kids a little longer to make sure that every kid that wanted them got them.  We had him do the Classic show and the kids had the biggest smiles and looks of awe on their faces.  He did a great job of getting the adults and crowd participating as well to keep things funny.  

   Feedback from people that came to the party was terrific.   Saw his show before, but he keeps adding new routines to keep things interesting and fun.  So, if you want someone professional, funny, good for kids and adults, and keeps things fresh, Mike is your man.  

   Highly recommended!............................................Sid H. (Happy Host/Dad)

   I found Mike Ching online when I was scrambling for a magician to add to the entertainment line up for my daughter's first birthday.  I contacted him a few days before the birthday party, hoping he would be able to put something together.  He did an absolutely AMAZING job!!!

   It was last minute notice for him but he was still able to put on a fabulous show! Everyone loved his walking magic (he went around to various guests and did one on one magic tricks) AND he did a full show in addition to that!

  He was so nice, and very personable, and entertaining! The show was a hit, everyone enjoyed it, kids and adults!! I was so thrilled to have him at the party, and can't wait to have him at the next party!

I highly recommend Mike's work to anyone

We could not have been more pleased

Michael worked closely with me to learn our needs
and designed his performance accordingly.

He began by strolling through the party with some great close-up magic.
The entertainment value was evident by the laughter and applause
emanating from his area of the party.

This was followed by a mystifying stage performance with much comedy. (Mike contacted me days prior to get the inside news going around the office. This personalized touch really brought the performance home
and had them rolling in the aisles!

Feedback I've received include a lot of 'That was perfect!'"
