“Max's jocular hybridization of mentally themed performance with magic illusions and music has enthralled our members on a bi-monthly basis. His incredible sleight of hand tricks have never once been repeated by him, to the wide-eyed astonishment of all. Little wonder that his moniker - ‘Unusualist' is no surprise at all.”

- Dover Street Arts Club

“I've now had the good fortune of seeing several of your "YouTube" pieces and think you're fantastic. You're funny, wild, surreal, original, and inventive. Your technique is superb and your imagination joyfully refreshing. So I write you as a new fan.”

- Teller (Penn and Teller ITV Fool us)

“You were brilliant, they were a tough crowd but you won them over.”

- Sir Elton John

“Thank you Max, you’re a genius!”

- Stephen Fry

“Dear boy, you are the face of the Magic Circle.”

- Jack Delvin (President of Magic Circle)

““Maximilian came to perform at our House Supper – the end of year Christmas Party in a busy School Boarding House. I can only say – WOW! His engagement with the audience of boys and staff was first class, pitched just right. His magical skill is absolutely incredible. This guy really knows how to impress and astound. We have top flight magicians every year for this event and have done for six years. I can truly say that Maximilian has surpassed them all. I wholeheartedly recommend him.””

- Paul Dunstan, Housemaster- McGill's House

“When I watch you perform on stage, you are Electrifying. It’s amazing.”

- Katherine Mills (TV magician)

“We loved the fact that having Maximilian the Unusualist at our exhibition gave us something other than a standard magician who does card tricks, he didn’t tell the guests he was a magician and made the unusual happen with seemingly everyday objects, the subtlety of it all seemed to compliment the fun social nature of the viewing.”

“Oh my goodness, I’d forgotten how good you were!”

- Hugh Grant
