    Best Show in Houston!!!
    MOST entertaining show EVER! My husband and I had a smile on our faces the entire night. Ben was funny, engaging and an incredible magician. We are still trying to figure out how he did all the “tricks”. We will definitely go to his show again and bring friends and family next time.

    WOW!
    This was the best magic show we have ever seen. As a skeptic, I was not expecting the level of amazement that his tricks provided. He also added a lot of comedy, some music, audience participation and general fun. I would highly recommend seeing him and/or inviting him to corporate events. In my former career I have brought in entertainment for multiple company meetings and only wish I had known about Ben before I retired. He would be a great addition to any offsite.

    Ben Jackson is Magically Fantabulous!
    Ben Jackson's magically mind numbing performance is not your floating statues type of magic. No, Ben's observations of his audience, their participation & the intimate venue elevates Ben's magic & your experience. Ben's magic is mind numbing! His performance spectacular! The experience will leave you spellbound! Best time & money spent on a birthday present ever! Thank you Ben Jackson

    A Fantastic Experience!!!
    A fantastic experience!!! A great show that leaves you wondering “how did he do that?”. In reality I’m not sure I would want to know. Truly a personable and thoroughly entertaining experience and better to just sit back and enjoy the “magic”. Thank Ben Jackson for a great evening of entertainment!!!

    Blew away my expectations!
    I had no idea how good this would be. I heard from a friend or two and read a couple reviews how good it was. It was way more awesome than my expectations. What a great night. I got tired of saying "How the heck did he do that" out loud. Thank you Ben!

    You'll be so happy you went.
    We have seen Ben three times and each show gets better and better. He is a true entertainer. Talented, engaging, funny and genuine. The venue is lovely and the perfect size for an interactive show. He greeted us personally before and thanked us after. Already ready to see his performance again!

    Be Amazed!
    It is truly amazing to watch Ben Jackson practice his craft! This is the second time my wife and I saw Ben perform and again he did not disappoint us in the least. His shows are designed for a small audience and his "up close" brand of magic defies proper description. Ben directly engages with his audience members on stage, which contributes to the fun and makes great use of Ben's wit and humor. Jackson’s magic shows are excellent from start to finish. Front row seats are nice, but do not be concerned if your seats are not front row. Ben makes sure every seat is a prime spot for his audience.

    Really fun show. There was plenty of interaction with audience. Well done show. If you haven't gone, you should go. Great event to take a date or your mom and dad. Really just a great all around show that everyone can enjoy.

    Jaw Dropping Magic & Hilarious Fun
    My wife and I saw Ben's show at the Four Seasons and it was absolutely incredible from start to finish. Not only was his magic mind-bending, but he was hilarious and involved the crowd from start to finish. We each were lucky to participate in 2 of the tricks, which made it all the more fun. We are still talking about how impossible some of them were! It was a perfect date night, and we would highly recommend you head to Ben's show as soon as possible!

We have seen this show maybe 5 times over ten years, a couple as a part of a gala, always enjoyable, funny, and magical. The illusions are unfathomable, but it is his delivery and wit that make it funny... and he plays the piano!

It can be hard to find top tier performers in residency in Houston, but Ben Jackson absolutely is. You are definitely missing out if you don't take advantage. The show is very intimate (there are no bad seats) and I think about 70% of the audience got to participate in some way or another, all in a fun, low key way.

Highly recommend.

Our group had a great time! The show was very entertaining, engaging and interesting. It was something different to do than just going out to dinner. Definitely recommend to any and all adults! Thanks for the memories and thrill :)

The show was 90 minutes long. For about 88 of those minutes, we were laughing or shaking our heads in disbelief. Ben has crafted an amazing show. I love that he is clean, funny, and REALLY good at magic.

How did he do it? We were absolutely stunned. Over 90 minutes of close up, personalized magic and laughs. Not a bad seat in the venue. He is THE magician to see in Houston hands down. Will be coming back.

This was, by far, the best show of any type I've seen recently. Ben Jackson was AMAZING. I have to admit that I approach most shows like this with some trepidation, for I don't like audience participation or the possibility of having to go up on stage. I entered this intimate venue somewhat stressed for that reason, but in no time I was relaxed and having the time of my life. Three of the four of us in our group did, indeed, end up on stage (and the fourth was called upon for answers) but there was no stress and no embarrassment. It couldn't have been more fun! The show was magical in every way, and beyond comprehension. We all had absolutely no idea how Ben pulled off the incredible tricks that he did, and we left dumbfounded. Not only is Ben the best magician I've ever seen, but is clearly musically talented, quick-witted, and wildly entertaining. This is a must-see!!

What a wonderful, funny and amazing magic show! My husband and I loved every second! Ben is an awesome entertainer - kept us engaged every minute! We can't wait to go again! Believe us, you will leave with a smile on your face and still scratching your head trying to understand "How in the world did he do that??"
