I did not care for the venue. The stage was only slighty raised and the chairs were all on the floor level which made it hard to see. While some of the magic was pretty good most of it was just so-so. None of it was spectacular. There seemed to be...continued

Very entertaining. He is great with a crowd, and makes the evening fun. I've read other reviews, and I imagine that the back row of seat would be harder to see from (which is the reason for giving it a four instead of a five). I do think that...continued

The show was fine. He is (somehow) funny and, for the amateur, most of the tricks would probably be original. My main reason to doubt about recommending it is the price. Even having paid half price, it seems expensive. We paid $135 for three...continued

Sorry, but this show only earns a 3 Star "It Was O.K." There was too much wasted time in-between tricks, & it was difficult to see since everyone's head was right in front of you - the seating was portable chairs on the level floor, with only a...continued

Many things we liked. The suite was very very quaint about only 60 people if that many. Ivan had the audience participate in many of his illusions and some were quite amazing...We would highly recommend the show. Dress attire is cocktail (It's in...continued

This was a great show. Everybody in our group enjoyed the show.
Ivan is a great magician, he is funny too.
He involves the audience in the act which makes it exciting.

I agree with many of the reviews stating that although it was entertaining, it wasn't really magic - more mild comedy with attitude. Most "tricks" were easy to figure out; maybe sitting at the very end of the front row made it tough to miss and...continued

I should have read the reviews before buying my tickets. After reading them, I decided not to go. The primary reason was that he’s performing in a salon and not on an elevated stage. Many of the reviews indicate that it’s hard to see and his jokes...continued

Fantastic, intimate, and humor-filled show. He was VERY entertaining, the magic was, well, magical, and the accompanying cellist helped build the drama of the evening. The audience was thoroughly involved and engaged and he kept us all wanting...continued

the show was funny and entertaining. Ivan is a great entertainer and does his magic very well. Recommend it to everyone of all ages. It was a small venue but still better to be a little early for a better seat.

we had a wonderful time. The show was so much fun. Ivan has personality, charm & talent. And he is soooo good looking. It was very nice touch having ice water set out for us and also loved the candles. No bad seats anywhere. I would highly...continued

I really enjoyed this event. Visiting the Beverly Wilshire Hotel is a pleasure in itself. Dressed up a bit to make a special night. My husband wore a sport jacket. The surroundings are beautiful, the magic exceptional and watching Ivan is...continued

Funny Stuff! This dude is talented and engaging. Nearly all his tricks were Las Vegas caliber. Get there early if you can.

Everything was great about the show. Magic wasn't the flashiest, but Ivan was a great host. The room is a bit small and view angles are restricted (especially if the person in front of you is large). Simone was beautiful and capable on the Cello.

Very unusual to find a magician performing (1) a set that lasts 75-minutes, (2) featuring live music (a cellist in an evening gown!), (3) in a public room of a fashionable hotel! I'm a member of The Magic Castle and am using to seeing my magic...continued

This is the second time I saw Ivan Amodei and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. I took my family and they all loved it.
