for a previous production "The jokes flew a mile a minute and the audience, including my 3-year old and 5-year-old, was in total awe. It was clear this was a top-notch performance that could very well stand on its own as a Vegas performance. Like many magicians, Max has a shtick. But his shtick is so good, I left the show wanting to see more and with a strong feeling that the 'Amazing Max' has all the makings of a cult-like following." Full Review
for a previous production "From card tricks to juggling to hatching eggs, to making coins appear everywhere, to taking a ring from a woman and finding it buried in a wrapped gift, his tricks are both amazing and puzzling. I found myself sitting there thinking, 'How did he do that?'...Not only is he nice and patient on stage, but he is genuine in real life and great with kids. He is billed as one of the most sought after magicians in New York, and it is easy to see why." Full Review
for a previous production "Max is not only charming, witty, and hilarious, but he knows how to work his audience...Max is just as much a comedian as he is an undeniably talented magician. His show not only captivates the audience with his innovative magic tricks, but his comedic improv keeps the show moving along at a well-proportioned pace. The very young, the very old, and even the swaggering teenager in between will truly be fascinated by 'The Amazing Max.'" Full Review
for a previous production "Darwin is amazing at capturing the attention of little ones with a goofiness that is charming, shocking and delighting them in equal measure...Sadly, one of Max's captivation tools is potty language—lots of it. It's not that we're prudes or magic purists; we're just not big fans of words like 'poopy,' 'farty' and 'stinky'...Max would do just fine to concentrate on what he does best: three parts comedic children's theater, one part deliberately lowbrow tricks. That combo's magic." Full Review
