“Martin Cox lecture contains material that is adaptable. He has an edginess that works for adults and a soft side of his humor that works for families. In his lecture he works through pacing, comedic expression, and even some magic!” – James Ember
“By the time Martin had finished his lecture you felt that you knew him personally, and that I think is the sign of a successful performance, incidentally – and it is almost incidentally – his tricks were quite accomplished too. If you ever get a chance to see a Martin Cox lecture – or to see him perform, then don’t even think about it. Just go. I guarantee you won’t regret it.” – Paul Reason, President of the Fez Magic Club (U.K.)
