“Ben Silver was great. I was busy managing other logistics, but was able to see him work the room from group to group. Our customers seemed to really enjoy themselves and were amazed by the tricks he performed. I had to step out of the event to deal with an issue and caught Ben just before he left. Even though he was packed up, he offered to perform a trick for me as I didn’t get the chance to see any of it due to my responsibilities. I would definitely recommend SGM and use them again for future events.”

“Truly enjoy working with the Sleeping Giant team! Wanted to book a fun, unique type of entertainment for a corporate intimate dinner. We hired Ben Silver who was our sommelier then at the end of the evening closed with 15 minutes of magic. It was one of the coolest, most memorable experiences. Very unexpected. Ben is a true professional. Very polished, engaging and created a genuine experience which really could not be duplicated based on his talent. Our clients, this morning were still talking about the amazing experience Ben delivered. I can not wait to book Ben again for another event! He is AMAZING!”

“Ben Silver was amazing. People are still talking about him days later. He’s probably the best illusionist I’ve seen. What was the most amusing, was the crowd he was playing to were mostly scientists. The fact that they could not sort out how he was able to do the tricks he performed, made for fantastic entertainment. I would hire him again in a heart beat. He brought the crowd together, was professional, and became a great topic of conversation. Thank you!”
