We invited Doktor Strange to attend an annual employee recognition event on December 2, 2014 that we hold at our Hotel each year. Doktor Strange performed some magic for our employees at their tables during dinner then hosted the “Wicked Bingo” game for us afterwards, it was awesome! Our employees were engaged, participated and had fun throughout the show. It really made this year’s event special and most of all fun. I would highly recommend Doktor Strange!

Doktor Strange thrilled the children with his magic at the White Rock Princess Party. His entertaining style is interactive and so funny. The children were captured by him. Thank you Doktor Strange for bringing the belief in magic back to all of us.

We wanted to personally thank you for taking the time to come out yesterday for our Ice Cream Picnic. We had a lot of very special kids in attendance who were clearly mesmerized by your magic! Special days like these aren’t possible without people like yourself, so thank you again for your support!

We had Doktor Strange at our annual Welcome Expo at WinterPRIDE in Whistler. He performed roaming magic and his magic was something that was tangible for our guests, including myself, and there is nothing more memorable than being a part of a trick. Everyone who watched his magic was amazed and those that got to be a part of the trick left with a sense of awe that you can only experience to appreciate. Would highly recommend him and look at having him back again
We hired Doktor Strange for the celebration of my wife's 50th birthday and our son's 18th birthday. All of our guests were left in awe and true surprise from the show. Incredibly talented and a comedian-at-heart, Doktor Strange made our celebration one we will never forget!
P.S.: Radu is still asking where is his cigarette!

Wow! What energy and organization. Stephen (Doktor Strange) Kaplan made our event run smoothly with the kind of enthusiasm that added to the electricity of the evening. Everyone was amazed at his talent as an auctioneer, which also gave the final part of our event the professional touch we were looking for as a last impression. Thank you so much, Stephen, for acting as MC, ante-caller and auctioneer for the second time for the 2nd Annual CHW Hearts Are Wild Poker Evening.

Stephen (Doktor Strange) conducted the event in a professional and entertaining manner, with just the right amount of humour, and ended off the afternoon with some magic which entertained all the participants and left them on a happy, satisfied and high note. We would certainly recommend him for any similar functions.

We have had several magicians in the previous years and your show was the best by far. It was very engaging for everyone present from the younger siblings (3 year olds) to the very seasoned Scouter! People are still talking about the show and wondering how you did all those things! Thanks again!"

Doktor Strange was able to weave between our guests and highlight our corporate sponsors in such away that is was engaging, informative and most of all entertaining! His quick wit, smooth slight of hand tricks and natural charm was a memorable component to our program.
