ROBIN’S SHOW RECOMMENDATION & TICKET GIVEAWAY: The Amazing Max
The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things is a fun magic show for kids and adults with loads of audience interaction and laughs. Max is charming, witty and engaging, and has a good time with the kids as well as mystifying a crowd. At times, he brought Pee Wee Herman to mind (in a good way), and children in the audience couldn’t get enough of him. My son really enjoyed the show.
