A children's book author, a former teacher, and part owner of Austin's Fantastic Magic Camp, Aaron is unashamedly a children's entertainer. The tricks are great, but the SHOW is exactly what your kids will want.
This man really knows how the the pull the attention of crowd. We brought in Aaron for our baby 1st birthday to entertain kids, who turned up into our party and he had the attention of everyone kid around. We hired him for Balloon Twist and Comedy Magic show. He is very good at playing along the crowd and paused his event when were hosting the cake celebration and resumed. Aaron was very flexible and all our guests really enjoyed his show. I highly recommend Aaron Fasel to make you event lively.
Response from Aaron Fasel Magician:
That is so very kind. Thank you AND you’re welcome! What a great crowd that night!
I even booked, the next day, another event with one of your guests from that party. That’s always my favorite sort of endorsement, and it’s all thanks to you!
Aaron was a GREAT addition to our 4 yr old daughter’s birthday party at Little Land in Bee Cave. I was amazed at how well he captivated an audience of 4-6 year olds for more than 15-20 minutes. (He altered his performance time to be the most appropriate for the age of the party goers.) He was a delight for the kids AND adults alike and his sense of humor was spot on. Aaron made balloon animals for the guests which was a huge hit. I had an inside tip that the cutest balloon animal he makes is a snail but the frog he made rivals the cuteness of the snail! Don’t miss out — he’s a gem!
Response from Aaron Fasel Magician:
Thanks Liz! I hope the Unicorn Balloons were a hit, too! You (or your kiddo, I imagine) chose a great theme.
What to Expect
Having been the featured magician at hundreds of birthday parties and events, by far the most successful are the ones where the kids get to meet me as they arrive; then enjoy a hilarious magic show, followed by cake, games, and balloon twisting; and best of all, you and the other parents can relax and enjoy. I recommend keeping it at around two hours long.
PARTY START TIME - Consider whether you want to feed the guests lunch. If not, you’ll typically want a start time between 1:00pm and 5:00pm.
GUEST ARRIVAL - No matter what time you tell people to arrive, you can assume that not everyone will be there until a half hour later. I will arrive at the party start time, during which time I will set up my equipment and do “crowd work,” as the kids arrive. This warms them up for an especially fun show.
SHOW STARTS - If everyone gets there before the half hour mark, I can start early. But either way, I will begin the performance by then, and you and the other parents can take a crack at the adult beverages. As the parent, sit back and relax. I’ll gather the kids, introduce myself, and wrap them all around my little finger for the next 45 minutes.
FOOD BREAK - Even if you’re not serving lunch, you’ll probably have a birthday cake and you’ll DEFINITELY want to sing the Birthday Song. When the show wraps up, I’ll direct the kids to follow your directions so that they may eat in the dining room/kitchen/back yard/etc.
PLAY TIME AND BALLOONS!
There are a few things you can be sure of:
1. Some kids eat fast and some eat slowly
2. The kids love to watch me make balloons animals (and swords and hats, etc.) . . . for about 5 minutes
3. The kids want to enjoy each others’ company
So for the first few minutes after the show, I’ll pack up my equipment and set up the balloon station. Then the kids can come to me any time they want. I generally discourage the kids from standing in line, and instead encourage them to approach me when there are only one or two kids getting a balloon made. I’m “on” the entire time, so you can expect more entertainment, e.g., magic, “dad jokes,” and occasionally some surprises.
During this period, concurrent with my making the balloons, the kids can have structured or free play time. I encourage parents to opt for free play. Not only do kids tend to prefer this, but it’s a lot easier on you. Less planning, fewer things to have to buy (e.g., a piñata, etc.).
SEE YA NEXT TIME! - Two hours after my initial arrival, the party’s over. The parents leave with their kids, and you get to bask in the glory of having a party better than the other parents.
