My Family and I were seated at a table with  him at the Magic Castle where he so effortlessly blew us away with his misdirection and close-up magic. I know they’re just tricks, but wow! My date was a magician, too, and she was caught off guard!

Can’t wait to see him perform again. Ephraim C

My review is definitely past due I saw his magic at my nephews birthday party in November. I would definitely recommend him for all types of parties. Not only were the kids entertained but so were the adults. His magic is intriguing and interesting.

I would highly recommend him for any age group party, he is a true showman!  Seda K

Rich performed his magic at a first birthday party I recently went to. He was amazing! I don’t want to give anything away but there was one magic trick where we were all sitting there with our jaws dropped! At first I was telling my friends the adults were more into Rich than the kids were. (There was a jumper so all the kids were into that instead.) But then Rich called the attention of the kids and they LOVED him! Haha. The kids were laughing, jumping, and Rich was able to get the kids to participate in the magic.

So he truly is good for ALL ages after all! Definitely recommend Rich for any party or event!  Jealle T

His magic tricks were unlike any other!! He did an ESP trick where I picked a card while his back was turned. He then somehow, determined which card I took based on simple hints. I chose a card with three squiggles on them and he went from something wet, to a boat, to water, to how the waves moved and determined which card I had picked!

He did a great job and 10/10 would see again!  Avery O

This magician brought a lot of fun to my morning, despite the heat and the fact I found out I just missed out on free coffee for a year.  If that isn’t a magic trick all its own, I don’t know what is.

I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him for a party or other event!  KF

Saw Rich perform in a small room at the Magic Castle, and was even lucky enough to be chosen as a volunteer for one of the tricks. Even up with a different angle than the rest of the audience had, Rich completely blew me away, and is a hugely nice person on top of it. After the show was over, I happened to run into him again near one of the bars and chatted with him for a bit.

Not only is he one of the best magicians I saw that night, but he’s very friendly and genuinely passionate about his craft. Travis P

Got to see Rich at a special up close magic show this morning at Dunkin Donuts. I don’t know how he did it but knew the card the lady was holding. LOVE LOVE LOVE up close tricks like that.

Thanks Rich for the entertainment!!!  May B

I had a pleasure of experiencing Rich’s crafts at the Magic Castle. I really enjoyed his magic – he is very talented and also very personable – It really adds to the whole experience! His “mind reading” tricks are awesome and my friends and I was blown away.

I will be visiting the Magic Castle again soon, and I really hope I get to see him again. Joanne H

Rich is by far the best magician I have ever seen. And not only is he talented, but he is also kind, smart, and extremely sociable! I certainly hope to return to the Magic Castle soon to see Rich perform again.

If you haven’t seen Rich Freeman before then try to catch him at some event.  Saw him again at a private party at Fred’s Restaurant in Huntington Beach last Friday.  Not only is he a cool Magic man, and dresses the part, but he has a great delivery.  Very Friendly on close up magic, with great banter.  The girls really love him and he is a very sly devil.

You’ll never figure out how he does his “schtick”.  Loved it.   Gary W

My friend and I met Rich at an event in Huntington Beach. We had no expectations going into the encounter, but goodness were we BLOWN AWAY at the end. He did an awesome ESP act w us that left us laughing a ton, super impressed and wondering how in the world he had done it! Would love to see Rich perform again.

He’s got a wonderful act and he wears a super cool outfit and he’s just an incredible magician!  Charlotte T

Rich has got skills!!! We had the pleasure of being entertained by Rich at a private event in HB and he was unbelievable! I love a good card trick and boy, I was not disappointed. More than magic, Rich has an incredibly friendly, warm personality that just adds to his performance. Best part of the night!

Saw Rich perform at a 1st birthday party. He was funny and entertaining and the kids LOVED him!! He was professional and engaging, even with the 20+ little ones jumping around him and trying to “help” lol. His show was focused on the kids, but it was a wow for the adults as well, and he took time to go around showing some tricks to the adults too.

I would definitely recommend Rich for any birthday or special event, regardless of age.  Sue S

Is anyone ever too old for magic?  Doubt it!  Recently saw Rich perform at a kids birthday party and he had everyone entertained — young and old alike!

The entire room noticed when he arrived.  Rich walked in wearing a top hat and dark coat, toting a suitcase which was playing eerie music.  Such a cool entrance!  Definitely intended for the kids, but hey, I noticed, too, and got a little intrigued myself.

He started off with a magic show for all the children.  It was interactive, encouraged participation without being too pushy, and had all the little pairs of eyes looking on in wonder.  The performance was age-appropriate and catered to the toddlers thru the older kids.

The following segment was my favorite since the adults got a taste of magic, too.  Rich went table-to-table and did CLOSE UP MAGIC.  Imagine witnessing your drunk uncles captivated in disbelief, then stand up demanding to see a card trick again.  Hilarious!!

Highly recommended for any family gatherings or work events that could use a special and unique kick of enchantment.  Sherryl L

Rich did a performance for a private party at our house and did an amazing job! He did a great show for the kids which was a huge hit. The kids couldn’t stop talking about it all night. He then went around the house and did interactive magic tricks with the adults which also had everyone amazed. He was very pleasant and easy to work with.

I would highly recommend him and would hire him again if we have another similar event.  Mona S

Rich is a master magician, but what really sets him apart is that he’s a great storyteller!  He ropes you in verbally so you can’t wait to see what will happen. And that makes the trick hit that much harder.  Plus he’s funny, and he seems like a really nice, genuine guy.

If you’re looking for magic, you can’t do better than Rich!  David M

Had an amazing time watching Rich Freeman last night. He puts on a great show. Not just magic but he made his crowd laugh. I wasn’t really expecting laughs at a magic show but i enjoyed every second of it. I went on a team activity and like most teams it was full of different personalities. He had all of hanging off the edge of our chair…well those that were sitting. Adrian M

Rich Freeman just wowed the heck out of my party at the Magic Castle. I mean, I’m still trying to figure out every trick and I’m at a loss for words.

Rich just performed at my kid’s birthday party.  He was easy to work with, arrived early, was very professional, and gave a great show.  My daughter, the birthday girl, was his assistant for the show and she loved it.  The kids ranging from 2-7 years old and adults were captivated.  Rich also did up close magic tricks  before and after the show for the adults.  A huge bonus was everyone who was there received an invitation to the Magic Castle.   His price was very reasonable and definitely worth it.  Duc N

We had worked with Rich for a private event and the guests had nothing but praises for him. He is amazing for private events! Rich was kind enough to invite us to the Magic Castle and we had such an wonderful time! It was a once in a lifetime experience. He introduced us to many of the magicians and they performed magic tricks for us. Rich is an amazing magician. After he had concluded his work he found us and did a show for us. We were left in awe!! I would gladly work with Rich again in the future. Very knowledgeable, skilled and professional!!!!  Mai T

My friends and I had the pleasure of meeting Rich recently at the Magic Castle and were blown away by his act!  We sat across a very small table from him and were still completely baffled about how he accomplished his tricks! He is a master of sleight of hand and ESP.   And on top of that, he is a really nice guy and super knowledgeable about the history of the Magic Castle and magic in LA generally.  We were thoroughly entertained and can’t wait to visit him again!  Sara M

I saw Rich perform at the Magic Castle in Los Angeles a few nights ago and was blown away by his close-up magic and ESP skills. Not only was he slick, but he was very amusing too, keeping us very entertained and laughing very loudly, as well as leaving us flabbergasted as to how he did it.

He was the consulate professional, as well as an absolute gent of a bloke,  and for my first time at a magic show I was left wanting to go again. I can’t recommend a night at the Magic Castle enough, even to the most skeptical of an audience, and Rich Freeman is the magician to go and see there. Will be taking my friends when they come to town again. Tom W

Went to a kid’s birthday party where Rich was the showcase magician. Being an adult, I assumed that Rich was “just” a kid’s magician. He proved me wrong. He showcased some of his magic trick for me and my friends and we were all blown away.
Rich can amaze not only children, but adults as well. He is as great a magician as he is a comedian. You’ll be entertained, delighted, amazed, confused, bewildered, and so many other emotions.
Who knew magic could be so cool! If it weren’t for the kids, I would have asked Rich to keep doing tricks for me and my friends.
Definitely recommending him for those looking for magic and laughs.  Kat T

I had the pleasure of seeing Rich at the Magic Castle back in March and he made our night even more amazing that we could have imagined. We went on a Monday, (not the most ideal night for a Magic Castle visit, but it was the only night I could do since my dad was in town visiting) and we met Rich early on. He told us some history on the castle and what areas we should check out.

As we were waiting for the rest of our party to arrive and the shows to start, Rich gave me and my dad a personal magic show. He read our minds, pulled the right card, even changed the whole deck right before our eyes! I really don’t know how he did it! It was amazing!

We saw him throughout the night, he was extremely welcoming, introduced us to other magicians and showed us more magic whenever we had a free moment. He made our night epic and something me and my dad will never forget!  Kelly P

Caught Rich Freeman at the Magic Castle recently. MC’s formal theaters are awesome, but some of the most enjoyable shows are the impromptu ones that pop up in and around the bars. After we got a drink at one of the bars, we got sucked into Rich’s act which soon had other bar patrons and passersby participating. Show had us laughing but still scratching our heads to how he pulled off truly dazzling sleight of hand.  Amy R

My son’s 7th birthday party was a blast, thanks to this awesome magician who entertained and performed magic to the guests of all ages. From the great grandparents who are 82 years old to the babies as young as 2 years old. He is very professional and respectful of your time.

Saw him at a kids bday yesterday.  He brings magic for both kids and adult alike, he first goes to each table and entertains the guests and put up a kids magic show honoring the bday boy and go on more magic for adults.

If you are looking for the boring bunny hat magic, that’s not Rich, but if you are looking for a magic that will keep you and your guest and you want to make your party the best party of all times he is the way to go.  I can’t wait to have him at our party.  Marie Cel M

Rich came for my 7 old year birthday party. Straight from my son’s and his friend’s mouth “awesome” “incredible” “I wish he could come everyday”.  The grown-ups were equally thrilled and blown away by Rich’s magic.
He was prompt, courteous, and kept the attention of a table of Mums and Dads and 15 kids. Rich was really the hit of the party and everyone is still talking about him.  Jen K

This review is overdue as Rich did a magic show for my daughter’s 10th birthday towards the end of 2017.  Can’t say enough good things about Rich.  He was professional, curious, flexible (we had the party at a pizza shop), and reasonable on price.  Best of all, Rich had an awesome performance and did some great magic.  Even the adults were baffled by some of the tricks.  He was also able to incorporate my daughter into the show which was just a bonus.  Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him, you won’t be disappointed.  Mike M

Instead of demanding our attention, which would have been rather annoying, he drew to us in to the illusion he was about to perform. We were left dumbstruck but laughing and if we are ever fortunate enough to visit the Magic Castle we hope to see him do his full close up show!! Highly Recommend!!  Steve R

I saw Rich perform Magic at the Huntington Library for a special event and it was mind blowing. I have been an avid Magic fan for quite some time learning how tricks are done but I couldn’t figure out at all how he executed these mind reading tricks without touching the cards. I am still in confusion over the ESP (mind reading) tricks of the cards and cube! It truly was some of the best simple mind boggling close up magic I have ever seen or heard of. It was truly phenomenal magic without any distractions or sleight of hand to point to or explain with.  Rich is a great entertainer with great reads into people and conversation starter. I would definitely recommend Rich for a unforgettable night. Jesse C

It’s been probably about a million years since I’ve seen magic tricks.  The earliest memory was as a child when a magician came to a birthday party and pull flowers out of wands and bunnies out of hats.
I first saw Rich at the Magic Castle. It was my first time at the Castle so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I sat down in one of the rooms and he was already performing.   Being a skeptic, I watched closely but he stumped me every single time.  He didn’t pull bunnies out of hats, but he did pull that small child who was amazed, who believed who he truly was. Magical.  He was also funny and engaged with everyone in the crowd which made it very fun!!!   My favorite magician at the Magic Castle!!! Luu T

Rich was exceptional host at the Magic Castle and and even more exceptional magician, I was in awe of his craft. He made our experience unforgettable, I wish I could go back every night.

Another super well-earned five star review for a five-star magician! Rich came for a combo Halloween and birthday party for me this weekend and it was absolutely amazing. His ESP and Mentalist Magic was mind-blowing. How does one do that without Trick cards or anything? Also knew certain colors with his special Cube….how the heck?   His humor and his patter were interesting and funny and kept flowing so well – he thoroughly entertained our guests . He worked groups in the room and it was perfect. One of my guests is an entertainment business manager and she said “oh my gosh where did you find him? He is the real deal! He’s fabulous!” I have to agree. He is warm and genuine and not merely a performer. He also makes you feel like a friend. I highly recommend Rich for any event. And he is very reasonable for his fee we can work something out with your budget  Julie F

Not only was Rich an excellent guide when my family visited the Magic Castle letting us know of all the ins and outs and how to best navigate the venue for the best possible experience, but also he possesses amazing sleight of hand!  He clearly has the power of magic because I couldn’t find any other explanation for the tricks that he performed.  Rich “wow”ed us trick after trick and even in his up-close shows, I couldn’t figure out how he made the cards do what they did.  Go see him and you’ll be amazed too!  Thanks Rich for the quality entertainment, lots of laughs, and for being a good human being!

October 13, 2017  (Magic Castle , Hollywood  [5.0 star rating]Rch showed three of us around The Magic Castle last night, and I think we had the best experience of anyone in the building!   He took us around to a few different small shows, always getting us to the various spots early enough that we were the first in line for everything. Then he gave us a personal up close show with some of the best tricks I’ve ever seen in my life! It was so good that other people came into the room and sat further back to watch, and he got them involved too! No spoilers here, but if you get to see Rich perform you’ll see magic you haven’t seen before anywhere else! 

He was extremely kind and knowledgable, and gave us a nice tour of the Castle’s history between all of the shows. Then to top it all off, we got to enjoy a meal with Rich downstairs in the bar. It was great food and better company.  Rich is very knowledgeable in every aspect of magic and was really happy to talk about his process, but he’s also a great conversationalist and learned a lot about us too.   What else can I say?! I’ll definitely be coming back so I can introduce more people to Rich – He’s THAT good! And if I ever need to hire a magician for anything I absolutely know who I’m calling!!!  Graham M

Everyone had a blast and was truly amazed at his magic tricks.   Rich started the show with my son’s favorite Harry Potter music, which was a nice touch (I told him that my son is into Harry Potter) and brought him an owl as a gift.

You might not think a “kids magician” would be worth your time as an adult. At least with Rich Freeman, you’d be wrong. He does a great show for the kids, but then works the tables where the adults are all sitting…and does some tricks I have honestly never seen before. I’m pretty good at picking apart most tricks or at least most of a trick, but he did up close tricks that thoroughly baffled me. And a great demeanor to go with it.  Erik J

Went to see Rich last year at the Magic Castle and was amazed with what he can do. His performance and witty humor really went the extra mile. It also kinda made me appreciate the art a bit more. Even though you try to figure out how he does it, his quick hands leave you still questioning if that was even possible. You will not be disappointed if Rich Freeman is appearing.  Jason C

Rich is by far the best magician I’ve ever seen.   Not only that, but he appeals to all ages.   We hosted my Dad’s birthday party yesterday and my Dad ‘s only request was to have Rich perform in the company of his friends.   We were guests of Rich’s at the Magic Castle in May and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. He toured us around like VIPs…not to mention his magic was the absolute BEST of the night.   After that experience, we were continually thinking of ways in which we could incorporate Rich into our parties and my Dad’s birthday was the perfect opportunity.
So, back to last night.   What was so great about last night is that Rich not only blows away the skeptics, but he also had lots of treats and tricks for my niece and nephew who were at the party.   His ability to perform, engage, and thrill our guests of every age is seriously second to none.   Not to mention, he’s just a super nice guy!   If you’re considering hiring a magician to be part of any event, for any audience, Rich is your guy.

He’s well worth any amount of money spent and will not, I repeat, WILL NOT disappoint. In fact, he will blow your socks off!   Katie P

Thanks, Rich, for all that you do!!  Rich is a great magician, and I love watching his card tricks not only because of his mastery and superior technique, but also because he’s undoubtedly entertaining, engaging, and personable, which adds to the magic itself.
My birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and one of the things I’ve always wanted to do ever since I was younger is to have a magician perform. The experience with Rich and the Magic Castle far exceeded my expectations and truly made for a memorable birthday this year.   Rich, in his communication and assurances, made me feel like a part of his close knit group of friends and family, and the experience was both easy and enjoyable.  Nathan D

What a great evening! This wasn’t my first time to the Magic Castle, but it was equally as amazing. Rich is a terrific entertainer and host. What a show! It was fun and fantastic and left us with our mouths agape. A great host, Rich knows the ins and outs about the Castle and has been a member for 30 years.

We recently saw Rich Freeman at the Magic Castle and he was AMAZING! He was so friendly, fun, and talented. My friends and I were blown away by his skills. It was such a treat to see him perform up close. He was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Magic Castle and we hope to see him perform again soon. I’m sure he would be so awesome at a private party or event. Thanks so much Rich!    Y.B.

I met Rich at kids birthday party. Rich did wonderful job to entertain our kids and to keep them focused. He made sure that Birthday boy feels special and receives all attention. If your kids like magic, I would certainly recommend Rich for your next party.
All his tricks were unique and interesting – so much that many parents were watching them as well. Rich went extra step and spent some time with adults at the end as well. His card tricks were very cool.  And of top of watching his excellent show, Rich extended to us an invitation to visit Magic Castel. Looking forward to visit Magic Castle next to enjoy magic is such a unique place.  Anna A

Rich did a birthday party (adult) and it was quite the entertaining night! I see a lot of reviews on here for kids, but he def can suit an older (and may I say a bit tipsy) crowd! Had a great night watching all his card tricks and seeing everyone’s mind blown by his tricks. Hoping to go see him at the magic castle soon, as he gave out invitations to anyone who was interested in going at the party!  Raquel T

Rich is fantastic! He gave my in-laws a tour of the Magic Castle and then he performed a close up magic show for them. He is so good that my skeptical father in law was blown away. He knows everything there is to know about the Magic Castle’s history and makes a wonderful tour guide. Such a nice guy and a great magician. Hope to hire him in the future to perform.  Jennifer S

Rich performed at our company holiday dinner. From the minute I began contacting him about performing at our party, he was a true professional. Our communication was very clear and open. Our event was outside of Rich’s general area, and he was still there early and ready to go. Once his show started, he worked the room very well. We had a part of room sectioned off for the children. Rich spent time with the kids and put smiles on all their faces. Overall, we very happy with his services. We will definitely use him again.  Edwin R

Rich was our magician at our company holiday party back in December, and he definitely left most of us in awe (and defeat, for those of us who kept trying to figure him out). While people were mingling, he wasn’t shy about coming up to small groups of people to entertain. He does a great job at breaking the ice. He was very animated and encouraged participants of the magic tricks to be just as enthusiastic. He amused us and confused us and left many of us wanting to go to The Magic Castle for more! I can’t tell you how amazed I was by his talent, and he was so smooth about it all. He always had a new trick up his sleeve. I’ve never been one for magic tricks (trust me, when I realized we had a magician at our party, I initially shrugged and thought I would try to avoid interacting with him), but after Rich’s entertainment, I can’t wait to see more at the castle.  Sherry C

Had the pleasure of meeting Rich a few weeks back at Magic Castle with my wife and our two friends. Rich was getting ready to start his show downstairs, as the room cleared out from the previous act he kindly invited us down front to sit at the table. We were amazed with his magic as he did a trick for each of us.  We basically experienced a private show for close to 20min!  He was also nice enough to make several suggestions for other magicians that were at the castle that evening.  Richs’ love for magic was plain to see; he had excitement in his eyes and we were lucky enough to have him share it with us. He was the highlight of our evening for sure.  Don M

In addition to his magic, he is also a Magic Castle Knight (I think that’s the right term) which means he is well versed in the history of the building and knows a great deal about the castle in general.  If you ever get an opportunity to see him or speak with him, take it!  Ricky L

​We met Rich Wednesday night at the Magic Castle. We went down to the dungeon right as a performer was finishing. Our group of 4 was noticeably disappointed, and the only other person in the room turned to us and asked us if we’d like a private show.   Of course this person was Rich, who made each of us the star of a our own personal trick. He then took the time to recommend other performers who were there that night. It was truly humbling to hear him speak so highly of the other magicians.  We saw numerous acts afterward, but 2 days later and we’re all still talking about his magic!  I still can’t figure out how he knew what card I was thinking about in my head!  Kevin G

One of the best memories we shared was when the six of us were sitting around a pub table with Rich at the center. Rich blew our minds with his close-up, slight-of-hand and card tricks. I’ve seen live magicians perform here before and in other venues, but I’ve never been so close up to a performing magician who caused us to sit stunned after every trick he literally pulled out of a bag.

Rich is an exceptional host!  He has host my fiancé and I on two different nights with guests we brought along.  First time he hosted us, he gave us a very thorough and engaging tour of the castle.  He also gave us a lot historical information on property.  First time I was there, I was about to meet Milt (on of the owners of Magic Castle).  He was sitting with company at one of the bars, but my friend and I were able to introduce ourselves and get a picture with him.  While you’re in the castle, there are a few shows with different time slots for guests to enjoy.  Rich would give his recommendations and allowed us to roam around ourselves.  One of his recommendations was Mike the Bartender.  Mike doesn’t have an official show, but he starts working in the downstairs bar room at 6/7pm and will perform when there are enough people.  Make an effort to go see him! I really really enjoyed his performance. When Rich gets an opportunity, he will also show you a few magic tricks of his own.  Overall, Rich gives you a great experience at Magic Castle!  Li H

It was near the end of our magical night at the Magic Castle and we happen to wonder into an empty room down in the basement. There sat Rich at a table with a deck of cards working on a new trick. He invited us in to sit down and he gave us the pleasure of performing for us. He was fantastic!  Clever and funny as well. He is a true magician with amazing talent, but the best part is how we talked him into performing the new trick he was working on. Even though he hadn’t completely perfected it, he performed it anyway. It was one of the coolest card tricks I have ever seen. He nailed it and concluded our night with such a delightful and fun experience. If you’re at the castle, find him! You won’t be disappointed. Thanks Rich!

First of all, the Magic Castle will be a magical and awesome experience no matter what, but it is magicians like Rich Freeman that actually make it truly memorable.  There are a few large shows in the Magic Castle and if you walk around, you are bound to walk into some magicians who perform “close-up magic.” It can be card tricks, strings or anything, but this allows you to sit in an intimate setting with a small group and watch the magician perform magic right before your eyes. Rich was extremely personable and friendly. I sat and watched him perform with a group of about 12 people.  He did the usual card tricks, but also had one with a story and many of his tricks involved the audience’s participation. His last trick — we were ALL in awe. Curious about what it was?? Go to the Magic Castle, find Rich, and find out! I had a great time and he’s really funny too!

We saw Rich Freeman @ the Magic Castle in June 2016.  He was excellent, great magic, very professional, funny and respectful…. He wasn’t hokey or campy with his routines…. Very cool, well prepared and fun to watch, we had a great time….his close up Magic was really good…. Highly recommend hiring him for any event that you need a magician…  LL DJ  & the Band

Rich was great. He came for our buddy’s 30th birthday party and for a bunch of intoxicated 20-something adults he put on a great show. He did some awesome tricks I hadn’t seen before and was very entertaining. Highly recommend!  Adam B

I had the pleasure of watching Rich perform close-up magic at the Magic Castle recently and all I have to say is….MIND…BLOWN!
Not only as was his slight of hand seamless but Rich is also HILARIOUS! It was definitely a rare treat for me to enjoy his comedy-infused magic show. For those who are lucky enough to be invited to the Magic Castle, ask your waiter to give you to schedule and let him know that you want to see Rich’s show.
And for the unlucky ones Rich does perform private shows as well 🙂  Jon C

Hey Rich, Thank you so much again for a wonderful evening. Ericka and I had the most amazing fun filled time. We both appreciate you taking the time to show us around and hanging out with us for a little while. After we left you we had a delicious dinner and saw a couple of additional shows. Then, later when we left we got pranked by Jay Leno himself. He pretended to be the valet guy and brought me my car. We totally fell for it!! It was so funny and was a perfect conclusion to the evening. It will be airing on his new TV show “Jay’s Garage” in about 10 days on CNBC. Look out for it!  Billy A

Where do I begin!!! Rich made our night, he was so awesome, yet he was our first Magician to meet at the Castle. He showed two of his fantastic tricks, that had my jaw drop!!!! It’s been a dream of mine to go to the castle and I’m so glad we met Rich he made my experience more special that I would’ve imagine it to be. I can’t wait to see you again Rich!!!!!  Monica G

Rich was a great host at the Magic Castle. He accommodated our large group and gave us a tour of the castle and was entertaining and funny throughout the tour. After that he constantly kept checking in with us making sure we were seeing the shows. He gave us a private show and his card tricks were amazing. Even blew away the biggest skeptics in our group. My wife enjoyed her birthday immensely, even though the evening started off horribly, because of a limo not Rich or the Magic Castle. We will definitely be back sometime to catch more of Rich’s show and see more great magic.  Eddie F

Rich Freeman was at the Magic Castle on Thursday and did some magic just for my friend and I.  He was amazing and mind blowing.  I was so impressed by his magic and completely in awe over how the tricks were performed.   If you get a chance to see him perform, please do.  You won’t be disappointed.  Angela D

My wife and I had the pleasure of having our 1st visit to the magic castle Friday night. Rich Freeman was the next act in the small room and asked us all to move closer. Rich was an amazing story teller and showman. His magic is up close and as hard as you stare at this hands, you can’t see what he’s doing. Rich was gracious by incorporating as many people as he could into his set. At one point he has almost 30 people surrounding him. Each one of his tricks was more amazing than before, but it was his last trick that blew us all away. If you get a chance to see Rich at the Magic Castle, make him one of your first stops. If you get to see him in another location, know you are in for a great time. He is a true entertainer.  Leo O

Magic castle is an experience you must have at least once living in LA. The dinner can be expensive but you have to go a little all out.  The bar food is cheaper but looked just as delicious. The interior atmosphere is really cool, it’s kind of a crazy maze getting around but it’s fun.  All the magicians are really cool and funny. So many rooms to go to. Rich Freeman had an awesome trick that blew my mind. It’s a must go.  Vince R

Last night was my first visit to the magic castle and it was truly memorable and special. In particular Rich Freeman’s performance stood out for the intimacy of it. Rather than sitting in a large room, there were about five of us seated around a table while Rich performed card tricks for us. Rich is personable and engaging, and his performance was just the cherry on top of an already perfect night.  Emily P

I read a tip you can ask for a CASTLE TOUR from a knight! We did just that and our castle knight, Rich, was the sweetest and gave us a memorable tour of the castle. He gave us a brief history of the castle and then showed us around the places for the different shows and cool little random facts and items in the castle as well. He’s a magician himself so near the end of the tour, he did a card magic trick on me, and that was pretty cool. 5 Stars for you Rich!!  Tiffany L

Had a wonderful experience visiting the Magic Castle this past Saturday for dinner and show.  On my way out, I was able to sit down and watch an up close and personal show that Rich was performing, with about 8 people.  I am still amazed by his story telling card trick with 4 of a kind (4 kings, 4, queens, & 4 jacks +10).  It was a really cool trick to watch, especially if you are listening to the story he is telling.  I hope to see him perform the next time I get invited back to visit.  Rich your awesome… thank you.   Nick T

Rich went above and beyond. It was my first time to the magic castle with my father, We are both into magic and had high hopes for the place. He helped the reputation live up to what we expected. He gave us a tour of the magic castle and showed us hidden secrets about the place as well as the history. He even gave us our own private show at the end. Our night at the Magic castle was a night ill never forget and i hope to be back soon.

I highly recommend his services!  Kevin D

I was invited to the Magic Castle by a family member and although Rich Freeman was not our host that evening we did attend one of his shows and I was happy we did because he was one of my favorite performers. I don’t want to spoil any of his tricks by describing them so I won’t but I will say he was thoroughly entertaining and funny as well, his magic was amazing and he did a great job of incorporating humor into a few of his tricks and because of this had the whole room laughing on more than one occasion during his short show. Even without the humor I would have loved his show, I left the room with a smile on my face and more than a few questions about how he pulled off his magic tricks.  Awesome magician, funny and personable. If you ever get a chance to see Rich Freeman perform I strongly recommend that you do!  Tyler S

I had the exciting opportunity to visit the Magic Castle with some of my friends, and Rich Freeman was the most amazing host ever!! He took us on a personal tour of the castle, where we were able to see things that we wouldn’t have seen on our own. He also gave us our own private show, and he is such a talented magician!! He is such a captivating performer, and it’s amazing watching his tricks up close! He took such good care of me and my group, always making sure that we were enjoying ourselves. I highly recommend having Rich as your host! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience at the Magic Castle, and I can’t wait to go back and see Rich perform again!! Thank you Rich for an unforgettable and magical night!!  Jenny P

He’s too good that he made us BELIEVE. We would love to come back JUST TO SEE HIM PERFORM. Otherwise its not worth it. If you havent seen Rich perform… Youre missing out.  Ross C

Rich performed at my son’s 1st birthday party and I can’t speak highly enough. He was just wonderful. He did a show for the kids and one for the adults. Everyone was amazed by his magic and he truly captivated the audience. It was so nice to have someone there to bring together the crowd. I also priced a lot of magicians because we were on a budget and he was definitely super fair with his price. And he includes tickets to the magic castle! I have nothing but great things to say. I will definitely be using his services anytime I need a magician!!!  Corinne B

Rich is an illustrious figure at the world famous Magic Castle. His powerful magic effects, comedy and people skills are recognized as unparalleled. He is a consummate professional and universally considered to be one of the nicest, most helpful figures at the Castle. It’s impossible not to like Rich and there’s no way you could go wrong having him as part of any event. Strongly recommended!

Being the first magician I saw, I was expecting to be impressed. Rich definitely did not disappoint! His tricks were so cool and he kept the crowd engaged and entertained the whole time! He was kind, funny and his magic tricks were great! I fully recommend checking Rich out if you’re lucky enough to be there when he is!

Such an amazing experience. Pretty pricey but we went for special occasion so we didn’t mind. The food was great, everyone liked what they ordered, and the service was wonderful.  Our favorite shows were Chris Capehart and El Ropo.  Both acts were funny and entertaining.  We also saw RichFreeman downstairs and he was amazing.  It’s so impressive to watch card tricks that closely and have no idea how he does it.   All in all the Magic Castle was an experience like no other in LA. Worth checking out.  Jamie C

It was our first trip to the Magic Castle, and Rich gave it that extra touch to make it that much more special. Hope to see him perform again!   Janine G

This place is amazing! Very eclectic feel to the place. Kinda feels like a speakeasy from the 20’s. The magicians were awesome. Not only do they have headliners but a bunch of practicing magicians as well. We were guests of Rich and were able to tour the entire castle. The history behind the entire building is intriguing. Drinks were awesome and the food was great. I can’t thank Rich enough for the invite. I will becoming back as soon as I get the chance. A great experience at the Castle. Thanks Rich!

Rich was absolutely remarkable. Simply put, he makes the impossible, possible. Hands down the highlight of my Magic Castle experience. We were late (big no no) and my boyfriend was even later (bigger no no) but the joke was on him because he really missed the best part of the evening which was Rich’s tour and special close up tricks. Ask him to show you what the probability of finding two of the same cards in two different decks (52*52)
It was really hard to watch anything else after watching Rich. He was the best part and I’m going to go back just to see what he’s been working on!
Don’t believe the hype? Go see for yourself.

OMG! OMG! What?! Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. Rich ‘The Hands’ Freeman is an artist… I am a 1st grade school teacher and I am a  skeptic. The hands are unreal. Rich Freeman is just unreal. This is my first time at the Magic Castle, my sister scored an invitation with him– he’s an old friend of his. He was nice enough to show us around.. And he blew us away with his talent. I am thoroughly impressed. I can not wait to be back to see him. This is a person that you definitely WANT TO MEET. What an unforgettable experience– thanks to Rich ‘The Hands’ Freeman. Wow. Wow.

Rich “The Hands” Freeman is SPECTACULAR!!! I have seen him perform twice now and he always delivers a fantastic experience and jaw-dropping close-up magic that blows your socks off and turns skeptics into believers.  He also gives the best tours of the Magic Castle, providing insight into the history behind the castle but also the magicians and members who perform there.  I learn something new every time I’m there, but Rich is my favorite tour guide because he is so much fun!!  Thank you so much for an awesome time this past Tuesday, Rich.  My friends and I were blown away.

One of the craziest things I have ever experienced!  Rich is a great magician, funny, and puts on an excellent show!  I hope to go back soon 🙂

Rich is one of the most talented up close magicians I have seen. Had the chance to see a private show of Rich’s the other week at the Magic Castle, and it was absolutely fantastic. Rich is a great entertainer and performer, and was nothing but accommodating to both me and my friend. Rich is incredibly caring and sweet, and his personality is really what makes him stand out compared to other magicians. He would be a great addition to any event one might want to host.

I went to The Magic Castle for the first time this week, and I can’t wait to come back! My friend knows Rich, so we started off by watching him do some card magic in a small, intimate room. I’m naturally skeptical of magic on principle, but I enjoy a good show as much as the next person. Rich’s tricks, though, stumped me. His movements are smooth, his confidence is contagious, and he’s such a funny, easygoing guy. My group didn’t want to leave the room even though there were so many shows to see. I can’t wait to come back and visit Rich. He’s entertaining, talented, and a great magician!

I recently went to the Magic Castle for my birthday and your show was incredible! You asked me to imagine a card in my head. I selected the 10 of hearts. The crazy part is, I changed my card from the 10 of Hearts to The Queen of Hearts right before you called my card, The Queen of Hearts! Your show left my groups jaws on the floor!

 I’ve been fortunate to attend the castle before, but last night was far and away my favorite visit. I went from liking the castle to absolutely loving it!! I would go there every week if I could!
We went hopping from bar to bar and at each stop were meet with some genuinely talented magicians. Bobby and John at one bar, Alfonso at W.C. fields (who performed my favorite coin illusion of the night which was absolutely outstanding) and then casually strolling into the Parlor of Prestidigitation, was absolutely magical in every way.
Of course the icing on the cake was your hospitality and personal attention. I respect the art of magic so much and recognize the time, effort and dedication it takes to be a polished magician. Your personality lends itself to the social aspect of magic and you’re illusions were entertaining and fun. You are an asset to the castle and worthy of the title “Knight”

Oh gosh, what a grand time my pals and I had with you at Magic Castle.  We will be reminiscing about our evening for months to come.  And thank you for attending my party yesterday.  ??  You may not have been there is body but you were certainly there in spirit.  I had a large gathering at my place which included the group I brought with me to the Castle on Saturday.  I kept hearing comments being made about our previous evening, how amazing it was,  and Rich did this, and then Rich did that, like you were an old buddy.  I also heard “well how did you get on her invite list?”  It was quite fun.  We all appreciate the special attention we received and for making us feel like V.I.P.’s.  Everything about our experience was just A-plus.  All I can say is thank you, thank you, only you didn’t make my sister disappear…HA, HA!   Thank you so much,  Margaret

I wanted to thank you for taking us to the Magic Castle the other day.  My wife and I were totally amazed at the whole experience and continue to talk to friends about the place.  We still couldn’t get over your card tricks.  Al & Catalina P.

Thank you so much for an amazing experience at the Magic Castle this past Saturday.  You made us believe in magic again and even made a believer out of the biggest skeptic in the house that night.  Lisa Alvardo

I’ve had the pleasure to attend Magic Castle several times,
every time Rich is performing at a table in a public group setting  I make an effort to go see him, besides been good at what he does, he is gently, funny and engages with every one at the table, making us feel welcome and a part of the show.

Gracias Rich.
