About

Josh Benson is a 19 year old Magician, Actor and Entertainer from York.

He has always performed, ever since being a child (despite still being one!), but only turned ‘professional’ 3.5 years ago, when he started his company “JB Entertainment”. Over the years, ‘JBE' has snowballed, and now provides various entertainment for all occasions. From kids parties to weddings to large events, let us entertain you! We provide Magic (of all varieties!), Characters, Discos and Games for Parties, Events, Shows and More!  Early booking is recommended.

This year we had Olaf visit too which was brilliant, thanks a million Josh, your energy and enthusiasm is off the scale! If you're thinking of booking Josh then do it, you won't regret it! xx "

  • " I just want to say a BIG thank you for performing at Anya's 21st. It was a wonderful 21st celebration and everyone was really impressed and kept asking me where I found you. Your magic was so well received and perfect for all ages, I know I was lost for words, the tricks are amazing and I am still trying to work out how you got Anya's name on the card I chose .... How do you do that? You have a lovely manner and the way you remembered all the names was amazing! You are a talented, professional, friendly and charming young man and we would definitely hire you again and would recommend you. "

  • " I booked Josh for my daughters christening celebration following recommendations on another Facebook page. He was absolutely brilliant. He kept the children (and adults) enthralled with his magic, and his energetic party dances, and the added touch of an appearance from Olaf made my daughters day. She is already asking for him to come back for her 4th birthday party!! Thank you for making her day so fantastic. "

  • " Professional, entertaining & so much fun. Knowing how good you were at our 50th birthday party ... we had to book you for our wedding. Our guests & us were truly entertained/amazed by your magic. The upfront & the table magic was fabulous entertainment for all ages. We would highly recommend you for any party or occasion. Will be booking you for future parties. "

  • " I was very fortunate to see Josh in action at a recent wedding, he was terrific with the children, who were enthralled by the magic tricks, he was really very funny and had everyone in stitches..the magic tricks for the adults were exceptional . He even brought along Stuart the Minion who was popular with the adults as well as the children. He is fantastic entertainer. :-) A really friendly nice guy. "

  • " Wow. Josh is amazing. We have seen josh a number of times. This time josh did my little girls birthday party and he was as usual, amazing. So full of energy, excellent with all the children, there wasn't one child who josh didn't interact with ( there were 40 plus of them too! ). All the parents enjoy the show too. I can't recommend highly enough. Thank you josh. "

  • " Had the pleasure of meeting Josh and Jack aka Spidey at the weekend for my son's 5th birthday party. Although I had not seen one of Josh's magic shows before he came highly recommended and I can honestly say he exceeded my expectations. Ollie can be quite shy around unfamiliar faces but as soon as Josh walked through the door he put him at ease. Had all 22 boys aged 3-5 in fits of laughter throughout. Spider-Man making an appearance was fantastic,he joined in with the party games and their energy and enthusiasm was brilliant. Highly recommend you will not be disappointed! "

  • " Josh provided the entertainment at my niece's christening today. Never mind the children I was totally enthralled. Josh has an excellent way of including the children and keeping the very young one's interested in his show. I would thoroughly recommend to everyone. "

  • " Just wanted go say a huge thank you for all you did at Eli's party last week - Eli and his friends had so much fun and were thoroughly transfixed by the magic and loved the dancing and the games. You and your spiderman friend made it a fab occasion for us all - many thanks. "

    • Judy, April 2015

  • " Can't recommend Josh enough! He did close up magic to a restaurant full of people and did not let us down!! Such a fun and friendly guy really made our evening! Thanks again Josh for travelling over to Hull and making the evening so fabulous x. "

    • Natalie, March 2016

  • " I cannot praise Josh enough, he was a pleasure to deal with from the start, flexible to our needs and his energy was absolutely brilliant. The children had an amazing time and we have had loads of compliments on the entertainment. Elsa and Olaf were also a massive hit and Josh even MC'd the rest of the event (introducing reindeer/Santa etc) I genuinely couldn't be happier with both the service and the entertainment. Do not even question booking him, do it, you really won't be disappointed! Thanks Josh and ladies xxxx. "
