“Gaetan Bloom is one of the most creative and interesting people I have ever met. He’s a genius when it comes to magic but he’s much more than that.

“One of the greatest magical minds of our lifetime. He will fool you again and again.” -Andy Nyman
“Gaetan Bloom is a French national treasure. He is really a creative superman. The most amazing part is not the sheer quantity of excellent material he comes up with. Believe me, he has great ideas all the time. For me the real genius is how simple and clever his methods are. When I grow up I want to be Gaetan Bloom.” -Kevin James
“Gaetan is not only a superb inventor of subtle secrets, but he is also one of the most entertaining performers – one whose magic is the high watermark of visual deception.” -David Ben
