Thanks to Marcel for his interest and enthusiasm regarding our event. It was a pleasure to work with him leading up to the event as well as on the evening. He is approachable and does not place himself on a pedestal as some performers do and I really appreciated that.

Marcel is, in a word, “outstanding”. He always amazes, entertains and confounds without hogging the limelight!

As a result of using Marcel’s presentation services, not only did I have an awesome entertainer, but also an MC, which cut my costs. Marcel is extremely well organised, and so helpful! His performance from an MC to Entertainer was seamless, and the crowd interaction so much fun! His show is fresh and very entertaining.

You were fabulous yesterday! You added “zing” to the whole occasion. It is a rare thing to find such manual dexterity combined with fine wit and intelligent dialogue. You were given a gift, and you have cared to develop it. Treasure it – and continue to be the wonderful approachable, modest human being that you are. I am grateful to Bronwyn for the opportunity of having showcased you and seen your talent first-hand.

You are a true professional performer in every sense of the word whose personal interaction with the audience will long be remembered. I still have the neurologists trying to “get into your mind” and figure out how you perform your acts, which makes the event something to remember and still to be talked about. Thank you for [being] part of this success.

It was a pleasure to deal with Marcel from start to finish. He is professional, efficient and reliable. He took on board all of our instructions and shared some really useful ideas for our conference which we used with great success. As an MC, he was energetic, funny and kept the crowd entertained and informed.

Marcel had my team entranced from the first moment.  Every single member was completely involved with his performance and you could have heard a pin drop in between huge outbursts of amazement and laughter.  He truly is pure magic!

On a more serious note, he was able to combine some meaningful tips for doing business during tough times. He was a great success and other divisions within our company will definitely use Marcel for some fun and inspiration.

It is without hesitation that I recommend Marcel Oudejans for MC’ing and performing magic at your next event! Go for Gold, a non-profit organisation held our Annual Industry Fundraising Dinner and Auction in the Grand Ballroom at The Westin Cape Town, attendees were from all major corporates from the South African built environment. Marcel MC’d and performed magic at our event that enthralled the audience and kept them captivated.

Marcel was thoroughly prepared to represent our organisation, one he had just gotten to know but spoke with such enthusiasm about the work we do that you would believe he had been a part of it for years. Well done Marcel and thank you for doing such a sterling job, making our event memorable for all our guests.

Marcel is incredibly professional, well groomed and a phenomenal MC and entertainer. His amazing people skills and experience reflect in the way he interpret individuals, diverse cultures as well as the crowd in general. (As a result of using Marcel) our launch had the elegance, sophistication and thrilling wow-factor we envisioned for the evening. Thank you for your priceless contribution to our launch and injecting Immaculate flair to our evening!

Forget any pre-conceived ideas you may have about magicians fitting in with circus acts and kids parties – this performance has world class polish that will dovetail perfectly with almost any occasion. Possibly most importantly, there is as much magic in Marcel’s ability to keep the attention of a group beyond the actual performance as there is in his ability to perform the seemingly impossible.
