Client Testimonials


“Thank you so much, Max!!! You made my party a memorable one!”

  – Amanda, Yucaipa, CA, USA


“I have hired and performed with Max for several years, from private, corporate gigs to public festivals of over 10,000 attendees. Max is always a crowd pleaser, he is extremely talented with multiple tools and has a tremendous stage presence that keeps an audience captivated. Max is a joy to work with, professional, friendly and an inspiring performer.”  – Andrea, Tahoe Fire Dancers, Fiddletown, CA


“Watching Max perform with fire is totally mesmerizing! You can clearly see his talent and fluidity with the fire toys, he moves with power and grace and is a pleasure to watch!”

  – Leila, Trilogy Sanctuary, La Jolla, CA


“I have hired Max Stuart several times to perform with Circus Mafia over the past few years. He is professional and personable with clients. His attention to detail is noticeable in his costumes and routines. I will continue to hire Max in the future because he truly is Fire to the Max.”

  – Krystin, Circus Mafia, San Diego, CA


“When I first saw Max spin fire I thought: ‘that guy is a performer through and through.’”

  – Stefan, Flow Art Manufacture, Munich, Germany


“Precious few souls have inspired my passion for the art of fire as Mr. Max has. As a teacher he’s pure patience and wisdom; but as a performer he soars like a kung-fu phoenix on acid ... I’ll never be the same.”

  – Chris P, Crispy Creations, BC, Canada


“Max is a hardworking and technical performer, patient teacher, and all around upbeat human. He is very easy and flexible to work with in my experience and, even from another performer’s perspective, puts on an amazingly fun show. I am always impressed and surprised by what Max is doing with his many different props!”  – Justin, Organic Pyrotechnic, Portland, OR


“Max Stuart embodies technical skills in a way that’s impressive to the geeky fire spinner, yet still relatable to the average audience member. This is a mark of a true entertainer. He inspires me and I am honored to call him a friend and fellow artist.”

  – Adelaide, Art by Adelaide, San Diego, CA


“Max is an excellent teacher and performer that I have both worked with and learned a lot from. He is reliable, on time for performances/classes, and always demonstrates skill with a smile. As a fellow artist, I have learned a lot from Max’s top notch showmanship and crowd interaction. There are few that match his skill in all of California with staff or sticks. He has the ability to communicate and teach to others all of his skills, and legitimately enjoys what he teaches.”  – Nick, 5 Element Fitness, San Diego, CA


I honestly can’t decide which I loved more: being Max’s student or his audience. Max has so much skill and experience with performing, teaching AND the flow arts! He’s such a fun, thorough teacher that I was so involved in the learning I forgot to be nervous about being a beginner! Max is that rare combination of artistic and analytical, observant and technical, that makes sure no detail — from fire safety to a trick’s form to the consistency of a performer’s ‘character’ — goes unexplored.  – Nicole, Pennsylvania, USA


“I created and ran FreeFlow Fire Arts Festival in 2016. As one of our teachers, Max was a professional from the very beginning, he joined the team and took initiative to help everywhere he could. He then excelled in teaching, performing & fire safety. I look forward to working/playing with Max in the future!”

  – Rafa, FreeFlow Arts, Gold Coast, Australia
