I had a great time with my wife here. Rick put on an awesome show at an affordable price for the Dells. There is no more wondering here how he has been performing here as long as he has been.

We clapped and clapped! The tricks were truly amazing. The comedy was delightful. Our grandson got to participate and we all had a fantastic time. Don’t miss this show if you are in the Dells. Very professional Vegas level entertainment!
