My husband and i were at the show about a month ago and we really enjoyed it. My husband is not a big magic fan like me growing up with david cooperfield and totally loving it. But we both really enjoyed the experience. Both kirby and bambi are wonderful performers and very enjoyable people, though both my husband and i are still sure we have met them somewhere before. Going back to see the animals after the show was amazing in so many ways and very impressive as to the level of care they take for these amazing creatures. They do a meet and greet with everyone afterward and you don't get that level of appreciation from many performers anymore. Thank you both so much for a very enjoyable evening and we do plan to come back and see them in the future. Hopefully closer to home next time.

I have enjoyed magic all my life and have seen many of the big name magicians and have swopped stories with many amateurs of the difficulty of different illusions. Kirby’s illusions are as great as any i have ever seen and better. His humility and down to earth approach to his craft is inspiring to all and his showmanship allows the audience to feel connected to him and the performers who accompany him. I came away uplifted, amazed, and inspired. Kirby, thank you!

The show was top notch. I would recommend this show to anyone. Kirby and bambi was superb and entertaining. I also loved that he shared his christianity and his love for christ in the show. He was as good as anyone, even david copperfield. We loved it!!!!

Show was entertaining. A crowd of only 11 people seemed to keep the excitement level down, but the performance was very good. We had not seen the illusions before.

I took my 5 year old granddaughter to see kirby. We enjoyed the show. My only suggestion is when we arrived, we were told told to wait in the attached hotel lobby/tv room and they would let us know when to enter the show. 15 minutes before the show, no one came to make sure we knew to enter. They could do a better of job of hyping up the show. My family has seen kirby at other venues and have always been excited to see his talent.

We really had a nice time. Wish we had seen more of the animals in the kirby magic show. Also for the second time the platters cancelled on us. Loved the andy williams christmas show he would have been so proud of the show.

Fast paced illusions that leave you wondering how'd he do that? Kirby's wife's magical talents provide variety.

Best magic show ive ever seen.
-- John Esler - Alta, IO
The show was great but the i expected more from the cat tour. They just had us walk through and look at them in their cages while they slept. I wish we could have stayed in our seats and they would have broghten all the cats on stage and introduced them maybe i would have felt like it was worth the extra money i spent for my family of three to have spent. Otherwise great show! Really glad bambi is back in his act!

Not only are kirby and bambi great performers,kirby is absolutely one of the hottest guys on earth,and bambi is gorgeous!I love how kirby interacts with the audience and jokes with them.I have been to kirby and bambi vanburch's show twice and been half way up the stadium seats both times.My family and i decided that next year,we will get front row seats.It's that good!Kirby and bambi stay after words and sign autographs and take pictures with their fans.I loved this show.

My family & i visited here in june 2008. We found a flyer for this show and decided to attend. It was the best magic show i have ever seen. We have 3 children and they were amazed and said it was the best part of our vacation. I strongly recommend this show!
-- Jessica - Oklahoma
Kirby and bambi were awesome. I did think they sold too many extras for my liking. Once you bought the tickets, they still sold at additional costs, stuffed animals, wands, coloring books, pictures , back stage passes, and the lists goes on and on and on.......

Kirby and bambi did a great show ,using big cats, white tigers, ducks, chickens,and so much more. When it was all put together it was a wonderful show experience.
-- David Wydick - Nevada, MO
This was a really interesting show. My favorite thing in branson. Especially the christmas spectacular.
-- Samantha Carpenter - Pierre Part Louisiana
Very good. We will see this show again
-- Tom Martin - Qiutman, TX
Not enough of his magic i saw a prev show and it was great. I realize this was a christmas show however more magic was the medium folks went to see.

My husband and i took our three grandchildren to branson. Our six-year- old grandson saw the kirby sign and wanted to go see the show. We went and had great seats! Kirby picked our four-year-old grandson, michael, out of the audience to assist him after the first child picked no longer wanted to stay on stage. Needless to say, kirby was great with michael even though michael became shy with him. Bambi and kirby are fantastic and we loved the story his grandmother shared with him that he shared with all of us at the end of his show. Great job, bambi & kirby, keep the faith and god bless you always!!
-- Barb Fountain - St. George, Kansas
The show was good. What i grew weary of was the peddling of stuffed animals, light wands and magic coloring books the whole pre-show and intermission. Please think of another, less intrusive way of making people aware of the souvenirs available.
-- Susan Shakley - Branson, MO
Excellent show!! Kirby and bambi should be playing vagas, but i'm glad they are in branson!
