Need a magician for your next children's event, birthday, wedding, cocktail party, or restaurant entertainment? Look no further! My name is Allen, and I am a professional magician from NYC who has performed magic and mentalism for over 14 years. I am frequently performing around the Tri-State area for private parties, restaurants, and corporate events. I have won 1st Place at multiple NY Talent Competitions, and have performed for countless local celebrities, small and large corporations, as well as festivals with over 3,000 guests! I bring my audiences an astonishing, modern, and entertaining experience with magic that is meant for the real world human being in the 21st century!
Allen was definitely not what I was expecting when I hired him... no top hat, no rabbits, no cheesy gimmicks, no corny jokes... just really solid, captivating, and entertaining magical performances! Allen is a fantastic performer who relates to his audience, cuts through the crap and just flat out amazes you with his tricks. Can I say tricks? Or some people like to say illusions. Regardless, Allen is both entertaining and hilarious and really a fantastic addition to any event.
Allen was the hit of the party! I had him come in for a half hour show to impress my wife and he blew the entire crowd away! And these are a bunch of skeptical young adults, the MOST DIFFICULT type of adults ever!! I would know I'm one of them!! He ended his show to thunderous applause and he even stuck around to perform his close-up magic as well. He was such a pleasure to work with, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU NEED A MAGICIAN!!
I watched Allen perform at my sister's birthday party last weekend in lower Manhattan... and he was PHENOMENAL! He was super charming, skillful, and of course magical! His tricks were both funny and interesting (even the card tricks), and they blowing minds left and right. I don't think there was a single person in that room that night that did not find his work impressive and entertaining.
I highly recommend him, in fact I'll most likely book him for my own birthday next year! Keep your calendar clear Allen! :)
I am so glad I found Allen for my daughter's birthday, he was beyond a doubt one of the most talented magicians I ever witnessed. His magic tricks were so impressive, and he was extremely professional with both the adults and children. I am not sure if I hired him for my daughter... because at the end of the day I think I spent more time following him around and watching his every performance! I highly recommend Allen for your next event!
Allen was brought in for my company's summer corporate event and was by far the highlight of the evening! He arrived early, was easy to communicate with, and his show was truly engaging for all in attendance (he even stuck around to make sure he got around to all of our guests for small group magic at no extra cost). We would definitely use him again and recommend him to others for their events!
The best magician ever! We loved the show and so did our guests! Allen performed at our son's First Communion party and he was great. All the kids and adults were engaged, his tricks were perfect for groups of any size and any age. Even after the show, Allen stayed beyond his booked time to perform even more close-up magic (literally people would not stop asking for more!). He is perfect for any occasion, casual or formal.
I came across Allen's website and I decided to book him for our company summer party this year.
The day of the event, everyone was so surprised we had such an incredible magician and was so blown away! He performed so many different tricks during his time I could not even keep track. Allen is very friendly, will answer any questions you may have, and even worked with me on the budget.
Now personally, I've never seen a magician in person yet alone up close. I could not believe what I was seeing the whole time he was doing magic. We were literally face to face! I already know I will be telling the story of one of the magic tricks he did for a long time because it was just that damn good!
Allen was SO INCREDIBLE! I hired him as a surprise for my dad and he not only did such a fantastic job entertaining him and our guests, and he is SUPER likable. We could not get any children or adult to get off of him because they were flocking around him for more magic. Allen handled the crazy people that are my friends and family with grace, patience, and unbelievably magical tricks. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a magician.
Allen was an ABSOLUTE DELIGHT at my wife's birthday party! He was extraordinarily easy to coordinate with, and his tricks are out of this WORLD. He has a lot of talent as a magician but is also down to earth and humble, which I think is a rare, but definitely attractive, quality for entertainers.
I got to see Allen perform at my best friend's wedding in NY, and he was a HUGE hit! His magic was both entertaining and captivating! When I first found out a magician was coming I was little skeptical at first... I really thought someone with a top hat, wand, and a jacket with a tail was going to come in. But I was very quickly relieved as soon as I saw him come in as a very sharply dressed individual, and was even more relieved once I saw him perform! He was full of energy, and was able to captivate people of all ages in the room, I even got to keep a few magical souvenirs!
If you are considering booking him I hope this review has helped! Allen is a very talented and entertaining individual!
I found Allen online and was quite honestly a little unsure as I do not typically do the hiring of entertainers for my events (my family can be critical of my choices), but after showing up for just 5 minutes I think everybody in the room would agree that Allen was a fantastic and critical piece of the success of my son's birthday party! Don't let his age fool you– he is professional, humble, and most importantly a really freaking good magician. I hired him to perform for all of the adults but he had special tricks for the children, couples, hell even the seniors in the group! And everyone would NOT stop complimenting him, I would know because they were coming to me for his contact information! Absolute star!
ABSOLUTELY. INCREDIBLE. Hiring Allen may have been the best thing I did for my company's summer party! I reached out to him super last minute but he was quick to respond, provide me a quote, and lock the logistics for this event. I did not book him through GigSalad but I just knew I had to write a positive review because he deserves it after busting out all of that magic for two hours with my coworkers! He's got a great future in magic for sure!
I booked Allen for my 5 year anniversary party, and he was the hit throughout the entire night! People wouldn’t stop talking about him during and after our party! He was extremely easy to work with (and believe me I've dealt with many difficult vendors and service providers), responsive, prompt, and professional. You definitely want to keep him in your invite list if you have an event, because let's be honest there's never a bad time for some entertaining magic tricks!
I think nowadays it’s normally quite tough picking the right entertainment for a party in your twenties in hopes that it would entertain ALL of your guests…but I’ll have to say hiring Allen made it pretty freakin’ easy! Upon initially reaching out to him Allen was quick and responsive, and answered every question I threw his way. He made communication easy, and above all he was a HUGE hit at party. Crowds formed around him for the entire duration of the event, and he stuck around for an additional half hour just because my guests would not let him go! If you’re considering hiring a magician for your next event then give Allen a shot, I have no doubts you won’t regret it.
Amazing! I hired Allen as a magician as a surprise birthday present for my cousin and he delivered. There was a party of around 20 of us, and he diligently did a walk around magic show, showing us multiple, mindboggling magic tricks. What I really appreciated about Allen, was that he saved a few magic tricks to show the guest of honor. Everyone had a great time when Allen was around.
On top of his tricks, he's also a down to Earth guy, providing his contact information the day of, so he can be part of the birthday surprise. There was ONE trick that absolutely blew everyone's mind, but I'll leave that up to him to show you :)
Price Range: $250+ for performances, $50 for lessons
