About Booking Magicians

Bring some magic to your next event! When hiring professional magicians, there are nuances and differences between the many genres of magic entertainment. Booking magicians is a popular choice for events of all types, from birthdays to corporate parties and festivals.

Close-up magic, street magic, stage (or cabaret) magic and magic for kids are among the most popular types of magic shows for events. Close-up magic (strolling or table magic) is suitable for smaller, intimate audiences, and is usually called "table magic" when performed, for example, as dinner entertainment.

Stage magicians perform on a small or large stage, and stage magic is often supported with comedy (adult-oriented or kid-friendly) and audience participation. Large magic shows (think David Copperfield, Doug Henning) feature more elaborate acts of illusion and magic such as making an audience member disappear, levitation, sawing a person in two, and escape artist tricks.

Children's party magicians perform a kids' magic show suitable for events such as a birthday or Bar Mitzvah party.
