Hagerman the Magician has been performing professionally for over 20 years! For ten years prior to his professional performance debut, he studied magic and comedy starting at the age of nine. In the third grade, he bought his very first book: How to be Funny. Young Hagerman never knew at that time that this was the beginning of a lifelong fascination with comedy and magic.
"He is a total delight to work with and a fascinating entertainer… I look forward to working with him again." – Jane Accurso, Entertainment Director, First Night, Columbia MO
From early on, Hagerman knew his approach to comedy magic was different. Rather than buying scripted comedy routines from magic catalogs, (as most professional magicians on this site do), he opted to create his own. Soon the local magicians he came in contact with began to help themselves to his material and routines. Hagerman did not like this and so he went underground. Only performing for private groups, he no longer advertised or performed publicly until now.
Hagerman's personality carries the show. Because of this, he doesn't need to perform large illusions to stretch time. He prefers to perform a high energy, one-man show. But if clients want large illusions, Hagerman has those but at twice the price: large illusions are a hassle to transport and to upkeep and won't fit in the over head compartment of a plane.
Hagerman's comedy magic is family friendly, 100% clean and he doesn't have to make fun of anyone to get laughs. He can fill any stage large or small. Bring him in to motivate and entertain at corporate events or hire him to perform in a fair or festival type setting. No matter what kind of venue you have, Hagerman brings magic and joy to all!
"Your show was absolutely delightful!" – Andre Kole, Legendary World Renown Illusionist, Phoenix AZ
"Everybody was blown away by your show, it was perfect for our event and your talent far exceeded anybody’s highest expectations." – Jeanine Cohoon, event planner, St Louis MO

"I received many unsolicited comments from guests about the quality of your shows and the professional way that you engaged the audience whether on stage or on the street. In fact, last night while we were preparing to close the park for the regular season, one of the last remaining guests tracked me down to let me know how much she and her family enjoyed the magic show last evening." Thomas A. Wages, Lake Compounce Theme Park/Former IAAPA President, Bristol CT
"In-park surveys by guests rated the shows highly, but one look at the audiences could have told you that." – Jeffrey A. Bailey, Marketing Manager, Seabreaze Amusement Park, Rochester NY
