"Holy dang Cow... Rich Ferguson is an Ellusionist artist. This should send Ellusionist-haters into a tizzy.
If there's anyone here who doesn't know who Rich is, then I encourage you to visit his website: http://www.richferguson.com/
Rich is a Master Magician and would be a great influence for any magician out there wondering if there's anything more to magic than a deck of cards. He has a very engaging and relaxed style of magic that makes the magic look absolutely natural: almost as if he had nothing to do with the magic itself, yet remained in complete control of it. Welcome, Rich!"
- Magic Forum

Rich has proven to be very trustworthy, consistant and reliable when he's hired for a job. He is amazingly inventive, he is certainly an out-of-the-box thinker and continues to amaze me every time I see him. Besides being an incredible magician, he is very down to earth, kind and genuine. Hire this man, you will not regret it!"
- Brenda Boorman, wedding professional and owner of A Heart to Heart Wedding Consultant
"I booked Rich to perform for about 350 people at a VERY loud event. Without knowing anyone at the party he made his way through the crowd doing an array of different types of performances. I literally had people coming up to me during the party asking me about him and telling me he was amazing. No joke. If you really want your guests to be amazed, hire Rich. He's the real deal. He complimented the other activities at the party perfectly."

I was married almost 7yrs ago and my guest still talk about him, he's not your pull a rabbit out of a hat guy, he has mind blowing tricks that are fun and amazing. If you were to have him at any of your events you would be the talk of the town I promise you that!"

"I had Rich entertaining my guests at my 70th birthday party and he made the gathering a complete success. My guests ranged from 3 to 80 years in age and he held the interest of all. The kids were particularly fascinated with him and his manner with the children was perfect. Overall, Rich fit into the party with ease and was looked at as a "natural" guest."
- Carole Korb, Pismo Beach

- Rev. Russ Marsh
"Just wanted to send a short note regarding your magical services. I host a charity Christmas party each year and thought your "magic" would be a perfect fit. It was. We had over 60 people attend and you were certainly the highlight of the event. I heartily recommend you to anyone who wants to liven up one's party with a glimpse of the beyond."
- Tom Paine, Central Coast Holiday Party
"Rich Ferguson really added to the fun atmosphere of the evening, and kept things moving along at a nice pace with some absolutely mesmerizing performances. He entertained some very bright engineers and had them stumped with his magic tricks. As he mingled among the crowd he kept everyone thoroughly entertained and shocked with what he can do. He provides no ordinary magic or card trick entertainment. We will bring him back for sure!"
- Michael F. Cannon, President, Cannon
"I've seen Rich on several times occasions throughout my years in this industry and he never ceases to AMAZE me with his skills!
What stands out to me the most when I think of the "Ice Breaker" in action, is when Rich paid me a visit at Villa Toscana one weekend, as I was the venue manager.
This just happened to be the weekend when we had some high profile clients staying with us~ one being Kevin Bacon.
Now,I really can't tell you what exactly what Rich did to tell you the truth when it comes down to the trick he performed for him, because it was more about the way Kevin responded.
He was enamored! Kevin stopped all that he was doing to watch Rich and try and dissect his every move. When the trick was finished his face was totally lit up, displaying the state of awe that he was in. I believe he even asked Rich to do it again, just because he thought it was that awesome.
Sorry I can't remember what it was you did, but I'm sure you can agree that it's more the reaction than the action in some situations and this proved to be so true.
Rich, "The Ice Breaker", you are a one of a kind! Thanks for the memories :)"
- Mary Allegretta-Butler
"One time I saw Rich turn into David Copperfield! He immediately changed back as he is a much better magician and did not want anyone to be confused by this. Actually I don't have one single event of Rich's that stands out, that is way to hard to do as everything has done over the years leaves me wondering if it really happened. Rich's dedication and commitment to excellence is inspiring. His intensity & passion in his work is unforgettable, a true professional!"
- Paul Thompson, DJ/MC/HOST, Escape Entertainment
"I first got to know Rich when I hired him to be the entertainment for a Salon party. I didn't really know what to expect- but was blown away , as were all of my guest's! Rich mingles around your party engaging party goers with his unique 'ice breaking' magic. You will be left wondering 'How did he do that?' you will be in awe, and want to follow him around the room as he entertains everyone with his slight of hand, mind reading trickery, card tricks and so much more. He is just what he says- an 'Ice Breaker' for any and all gatherings. People still talk about that party when they first met Rich- He is totally awesome, and words really cant explain how unique his talent and skill are- you just have to see it to believe it! You Rock Rich-keep up the great work and I cant wait to be entertained by you at the next event."
- Kim Brown
