From ENRYCH Oxfordshire:

Excellent show over Zoom for some of our members who are adults which a physical disability as part of our Covid-19 programme of zoom sessions. A variety of tricks aimed at children but suitable for adults too. Thank you for your time Jamie. An enjoyable hour for all of us.

From UnLtd – UK social enterprise

Jamie was great to have at our team social as a support mechanism for parents with kids who needed some entertainment during covid-19. Great feedback from my team and helped to lighten the mood during this hard time.

Flying Carpet Festival, Southern Turkey – Sahba Aminikia

Jamie was an artist-in-residence at our Flying Carpet Children Festival 2019 which operates in south east of Turkey where millions of vulnerable children of Syrian, Iraqi, Kurdish and Turkish origin reside and I have the honor of being the artistic director and founder of. His dedication, his passion and his professionalism was exemplary to all of us and to all the artists. We will never forget him and want him over and over again to bring joy and laugh to our children. I recommend him to anyone who is creating a magical experience and is bringing light and hope to children who deserve it most. Thank you Jamie.

AVSI Foundation

The children …were mesmerized by all the amazing magic tricks. It was an unforgettable experience for them as they got the chance to participate for the first time in such interactive shows that brought them so much excitement and joy!

Educating Young Women Association (EYWA)

Jamie enchanted all the kids at EYWA- Dar al Hadana [nursery].

We are grateful for having him perform and for all the beautiful smiles he put on our kids faces. We can’t thank you enough you have a heart of gold god bless keep drawing those smiles and enchanting those little souls.

Yalla Pour Les Enfants

Jamie adapted the shows to fit different age groups from 5 to 14 year olds and all children were delighted by the fun, great magic! With very simple material he was able to surprise them, make them laugh and cry from excitement. He also ran two magic teaching sessions separated by age, initiating them to nice tricks with simple materials.

We would like to thank you Mr. Jamie for your amazing show and we are lucky to meet such a talented magician like you. You made our day …and the children are requesting to see you and your show again.

King’s Kids educational center, Damour

The program was very rich and full of surprises. Laughter and Magic Smiles were on many faces, kids and staff. I loved your gentleness and kindness and the way you involved the kids. You really made them wonder and think, they kept talking about it for hours.

SB Overseas

SB Overseas invited Jamie to put on magic show at their education center in Sidon last week, and what a wonderful experience it was! Jamie brought so many smiles and looks of amazement to the children’s faces. It was great to see the kids so happy and attentive. I highly recommend Jamie Jibberish for kids of all ages

Save the Children

Humanitarian magician known as Jamie Jibberish (due to his use of magic language ) performed twice for Save the Children recently. This was in our activity centre ( or child friendly space) in the UNHCR registration centre in Tripoli where children attend whose parents queue up for interview. The children interacted very well and really had a lot of fun – we very much appreciated the rare initiative of Jamie the magician.

International Rescue Committee

The 4 magic shows ….have brought joy and positive effect on the street and working children. Magic helps their sense of creativity and imagination; it is a door for escapism from the daily difficult reality they face. It also works on developing their cognitive skills as they concentrate, analyse and try to discover the tricks. The sessions were very interactive and both street children and youths expressed their fascination and happiness after the shows. Children are in need of such creative sessions to put a smile on their face and help them get inspired during their daily life. Magic helps them develop their cognitive, creative and even communication skills.

War Child Holland

The children were amazed by the show and it was for them a very special event where they focused all their attention …they even did not want to leave when it was over!

Jusoor Syria

The experience was phenomenal. The children were extremely engaged and loved the show. It was wonderful seeing the smiles on their faces. Well done Jamie. Thank you for the much needed joy you brought to our students.

Al Jana

Jamie joined AL-JANA, NGO, in the JANANA Spring Festival where he toured with us each of Tripoli, Baalbak, Tyre and Sidon. He surprised all of us with his magnificent tricks and loving spirit. As part of our work in improving psychosocial well-being, Jamie offered hundreds of children from Palestinian camps an escape from their difficult reality and the hope of an entirely different world than what they have grown to know. His tricks left not only the kids, but all the staff members in awe too. We will definitely be working with Jamie again.

Magic Tuition

TechPixies

Jamie helped ease the stress of lockdown with weekly magic lessons for 2 months! He even did a magic show for my son’s 9th birthday which was a total hit. Thank you Jamie for keeping us laughing through a tough period when the kids were isolated at home.

Lucie Venard – Yalla

Jamie presented 3 magic shows for the children of Yalla! Pour les Enfants school in Aley and students of Aley First public school.

With very simple material he was able to surprise them, make them laugh and cry from excitement.

He also ran two magic teaching sessions separated by age, initiating them to nice tricks with simple materials. Thank you Jamie for these wonderful moments you offered the children!

A crowd of very excited 4 year-olds were spellbound for the entire half hour, and all clamouring to participate in the act. The show was thought provoking for the kids and Jamie was great at getting them involved. A wholehearted recommendation to other parents.

William Dobson – Aaliya’s Books

Jamie did a wonderful show at Aaliya’s Books in Beirut. A great range of tricks with fun and memorable presentation for both children and adults alike. Highly recommended

Badaro Festival organiser

The first time I saw Him, i thought, he’s too serious to be a magician. Then, I checked his Facebook page and saw some beautiful photos showing kids reactions. BUT, seeing his live show at Badaro Magical Christmas…. that was amazing! Behind that serious look, there’s a wonderful personality that catches the attention of all ages audience. Jamie … the Humanitarian Magician.

Robert Walker

Jamie gave a fantastic magic show for our two children’s birthday party at our home and kept over 20 six to eight year olds spellbound for forty minutes. Jamie is a gifted magician, and interacts well with his young audience…I would highly recommend Jamie for your children’s birthday party.
