“I have had the cautious pleasure of witnessing thrice what I regard as a compilation of one of the most ingenious, genuinely and previously undreamed of effects for a magic act in my several score years of Life!
So many bewildering and unexpected occurrences tumble in rapidly, one on top of the other, that they recede into somewhat throwaway shockers, like sudden bursts of lightning flashes, each one partially negating the next one. Yet each one having the capacity to sear our memory and elevate ours emotions.”
…Sylvester creates effects and methods that have no forbears in magic and that is the highest praise.”

“ I had seen this cartoon-comes-to-life act on television and I remember being impressed. Then I saw him live at a Magic convention and I was blown away by his manic and thoroughly magical inventiveness. Then when I saw him do superbly mystifying and hilarious close- up magic in character , I was impressed even more!
And then when he sat with me at lunch and did his Sylvester Pitch: the continuous production of, well just about anything , at arms length from my face, I realized this guy comes from a different gene pool then the rest of us.
The Uniqueness of his stage character, the perfect meshing of his one-of-a-kind magic done flawlessly with music, comedy and costume leaves me breathless!…
…Perhaps you’re wondering how he can Communicate His Humanity while “hiding” behind the cartoon character. Well ‘toons have feeling too! We empathize with him as he gets pulled and squished and maimed in unfathomable ways. And we laugh with him as he overcomes all manner of misfortune.
He is truly, Amazingly Unique.”
