Okay, just like the title implies, this is fun for the whole family.
But, the charm of this ever-so-well-done 60-minute magic act is not in how flawlessly coins appear and disappear from behind kids' ears nor how the string that is cut into a dozen little pieces always comes back together again, it is that the entire family can sit and enjoy the performance together; and ‘ta-da!’ that, ladies and gentlemen, is what families are looking for in a good show.

This is a jolly one-hour magic show, filled with clever hocus-pocus, cornball humour and truly awful puns (which are the best kind). Polished and professional, Wood has a delightful rapport with his audience and keeps the crowd laughing and smiling right to the end.
- Wendy Burke – Winnipeg Free Press
“...the act never fails to reduce the audience to tears of laughter.
- Ken Waddell – The Neepawa Banner
Greg Wood and his wife Oonaugh were wonderful entertainers and their performance was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. It is safe to say that Greg presented one of the best magician acts we have ever seen and this contributed to the overall success of the evening.

The Comedy Illusions of Greg Wood was a hit! As a performer for the 13th Pan American Games, Greg Wood delivered the perfect package for our Athlete Village Entertainment program. Mr. Wood skilfully proved that his talents transcend all language barriers when athletes from numerous Pan American countries were enthralled and fascinated by his act.
The Comedy Illusions of Greg Wood will be a highlight of any special gathering, for young or old.

Your unique style of relaying your message through magic and illusion kept our students engaged and motivated throughout your forty-five minute presentation. I cannot stress enough how important it is for our student body to hear why bullying is wrong from not only our staff, but also from outside speakers such as yourself.
- Lawrence Solinski – School Counsellor – George Waters Middle School
I loved the way you were able to deal with an important and sensitive issue in a kidfriendly way. I would recommend this show to any school group that wants their students to think about these important messages.

Your show captured our students’ attention from the moment you walked on stage and held it for the entire performance. As we looked around we could see student’s reactions to your words and actions. They were thinking about what you were saying. If possible we would love to have you back at our school.

Greg is a dynamic speaker and presenter and the students loved him. I was impressed with the messages he was able to convey by using magical tricks. The magic also had every student listening and watching. He certainly caught the students’ attention and kept them attending through his entire presentation.
I would certainly recommend this presentation to help students understand the importance of “Working Together for a Bully Free School.” Don’t hesitate to call me if you would like more information.

I would highly recommend your show to any group or school that wants a performer who really cares about the message he/she is getting across to the audience.
- Lloyd J, McKinney – Chief Clifford Lynsdeg Anishinale School
I was looking for two things: an entertaining and professional performance, and a message that built self-esteem in our students, making them resistant to the influences of alcohol and drug abuse. I have seen many such presentations and I must say I was very impressed with what I saw….As well, his talk, which showed a genuine concern, empowered kids and gave them things to think about. Never once did he “talk down”, and his comments, stories flowed nicely with his magic.
- David Babcock & Wayne Lewin – E.H. Walter School – Paradise Valley, AB
Mr. Wood put on an excellent performance into which he infused a powerful and thoughtful message about making good choices regarding the use of drugs. I highly recommend this performance for any middle school wishing to reinforce this important message. Mr. and Mrs. Wood were a pleasure to work with in setting up and delivery of their performance.
- Greg Udod – Happy Thought School
Just a quick word to thank you again for the marvelous performance you provided our students and staff on October 18th. It is rare to have a presentation yield so many positive accolades! You and Una did a superb job of blending magic, comedy, and real life messages.
