Prompt

Doug always arrives early for any performance. (sometimes even before the organizers arrive!) This means you never have to worry about your entertainment being there when and where you need him.

Dependable

Knock on wood! - Doug has only missed two performances due to illness, in over twenty years of entertaining. That's almost as good as Cal Ripkin's record.

A Family Entertainer 

Being a family man and a big kid himself, Doug knows and respects family values and only uses humour that the whole family can enjoy.

Doug earned the "Stan Hall Award for Magician of the Year" from the Magic Wand Club (Ring 49) in Hamilton.
