Fall 2016 Magic shows

I am not sure exactly why but the start of September seems to always be the start of the magic show season after the summer holidays. Though people are home during the summer and school starts in August, I think most people settle down in the new school year and plan many birthday parties and magic shows for September and October and then of course the busy holiday season kicks in.

Magic is quite popular these days with both the Penn and Teller show and the Masters of Illusion show going strong on TV. I hope many of you are watching these shows since they are quite high quality. I have added some new effects to my magic shows and I hope you enjoy them also. More and more people are asking for the illusion ,magic show where it appears that I make a member of the audience float for a few seconds. This can be done outdoors or indoors and has been very popular among the kids 7 years and older. Adults love this effect also.

I hope you make plans early if you need a magic show in September, October, November or December. I hope to see many of you in my shows.

Three magic shows in one day !

It is true - I actually did 3 back to back magic shows in one day. While there are probably many full time pros who do this, for me it was a first. Luckily there was enough time to get from one place to the next and more importantly the first show started 'on time' which is a pretty rare occurrence. The shows were for different age groups of kids and that means I had to pack carefully in the beginning of the day. I did forget to bring a couple of things but nothing major and all the shows went without a hitch. In fact, one of the customers was so happy, she immediately wrote a great review on

So while I prefer to do 1-2 shows a weekend and not to work every weekend either, sometimes things do not work the way we want. Ultimately when I stand in front of a group of kids and adults who are eagerly waiting to watch a magic show, I just love this feeling and it always brings out my best. And as I do more shows, I am getting even better at involving all the kids in a show and making them all work with me. I also did some balloon twisting for 2 shows yesterday and that is a lot of fun also. Whether it is a simple heart balloon on a stick, or a sword or a more complex figure, they all bring so much joy to the kids :-)
