"There is no doubt there will be a riotous good time in the building when Jeff Martin takes the stage! Jeff learned a long time ago that magic alone could be as ho hum as a Thanksgiving turkey unless it had the trimmings. Here is a show that is fully fleshed with Jeff’s expert skill coupled with his easy good humor, that will leave everyone with a very satisfied feeling, like right down to that last dollop of whipped cream on a slice of pumpkin pie." ...CS Talent Agency
