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 15 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!
I brought Allen in for my company's return to office celebration to change things up a bit and get people excited for coming back, and he was an all-time favorite at the event. In a room full of people who I consider to be very intellectual individuals he managed to blow every single one of their minds! I would book him again in a heartbeat.
I booked Allen for my sister’s bachelorette party for a fun twist on things and he absolutely delivered. He was funny, full of energy the whole time, and blow all of our minds. Working with him from the moment I submitted an inquiry was seamless. He answered all of my emails promptly, I knew I was working with a professional from the start. He is charming and a pleasure to work with! I’d give him more than 6 stars if I could!
Everyone at my father's 50th was talking about Allen's magic even hours after he left. He was very easy to work with from the get-go, and his magic really helped liven the party. Even for a room of older adults he was an absolute hit! We will definitely be having him back for more events in the future!
I had the luxury of booking Allen for a performance at my company's holiday party a few weeks ago, and he delivered miles beyond what I was expecting. He is a charming, super talented, and an extremely witty magician, and I know not one person who watched him that night will tell you otherwise because I had to hear everyone talk about it for the rest of the night (and the next!)! Absolutely superb, will be considering him again.
I work for a nonprofit organization and we decided to hold an appreciation event for our volunteers. We hired Allen to come in for walk-around magic and I am SO glad we did. Allen was professional, helpful, and communicated in a timely manner straight from the moment I connected with him.
His magic was was exceptional! Our team enjoyed every minute of it. Allen is fun, engaging, and incredible at what he does! The show was appropriate for everyone even in a professional environment and we definitely plan to book him again in the future.
Response from Allen He, the Magician:
Thank you Hannah! I hope to be able to work with you again soon!
We booked Allen for a 30th Birthday party. From first communication he was very professional and made everything easy. The event was outstanding. Allen was super funny and engaging and involved everyone in the show. All of his tricks were mind-blowing (in fact my sister-in-law hasn’t really got over having her mind read!) It made for a really memorable party and I have no hesitation in recommending Allen 100%.
Professional, engaging and oh so very entertaining!
We booked Allen for a corporate social event and he exceeded all expectations. He helped with planning and scheduling to best work with our event schedule, and everyone enjoyed the incredible magic and had a great time. Our team highly recommends him if you're looking for a fun and engaging event!
Response from Allen He, the Magician:
Thank you Alberto for the kind words! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your team.
Allen performed at a 40th birthday party for a friend, and was amazing. His sleight-of-hand and misdirection were excellent, and his audience rapport, humor, and improvisation were an added delight. He opened by walking amongst guests and performing for small groups, then finished with a short show for everyone.
He's great at reading an audience, tailoring his jokes, and engaging those that are watching, even the most skeptical and disinterested. For individuals and businesses in the Tri-State Area, I can't recommend strongly enough that you consider hiring him for your personal or corporate event.
We hired Allen for our company's fifth anniversary party, and he WOWED our guests and employees! He is extremely professional, great to work with, and puts on a fantastic performance. I had multiple guests ask me where I found him because of his work after just watching him for a few minutes. People were chatting about his magic for hours after his show! Thanks for bring such a highlight to the night!
Allen was an incredible addition to my birthday party! He had everybody amazed and dazzled. After he left, nobody could stop talking about his tricks. He was the topic of discussion for the remainder of the night.
Not to mention his communication was prompt, and he addressed each and every one of my concerns. I have not hired magicians before but Allen managed to make the process seamless. We'll definitely hire him for future events!
Mind Blown! Allen deserves well over 10-stars for his services and performance.
I needed last minute party entertainment for wife's birthday party. We contacted Allen the day before based on his reviews. He was so super helpful and even moved his schedule around to accommodate our needs despite being so last minute.
His performance did not disappoint. Not only did he make my daughter feel like a star in the performance and kept ALL the adults and kids entertained. A fun time was had by everyone, and I highly recommend him for any party.
I booked Allen for my husband's birthday as a surprise and he completely delivered above and beyond my expectations. Granted I have never hired a magician before, Allen was able to provide a great amount of detail regarding his services, walk me through pricing options, and made me feel extremely comfortable about hiring him.
That's even before going into his magic... because his magic was so incredibly well done. It's not any of the old... top hats, capes, and rabbits... he performed some mind-blowing things with markers, cards, and money, and also read pretty much every person's mind! I highly recommend Allen if you are looking for professional entertainment.
Allen was so great to work with! From the booking process to the actual day of the event. He speedily gave me all of the information I needed whenever I needed it, and I was surprisingly comfortable during the day of the event, but I think that was mostly due to his professionalism!
The magic he does is ABSOLUTELY superb! I have watched many magic shows in New York and Las Vegas, and I will say Allen does stump many of them in terms of person-ability and impressiveness. Add him on speed dial, you won't regret it.
Allen was a SUPER professional magician to work with, and was an absolute HIT with everyone at my boss' birthday party. He performed as a surprise at a 30th birthday party, and he did a fantastic job working the entire crowd (which I might add is probably a pretty tough group!!). His magic was insane, I got to see everything close up and even after focusing intently on his hands and every little detail he still managed to impress me. He improved the energy of the crowd, and kept it going for the entire night. We got messages all day the next day about how much fun people had. He was around for a bit afterward chatting with people, which they really enjoyed as well.
I would have never thought hiring a magician would have been this much fun, I'd definitely bring him back for future events.
Once you meet Allen, you definitely will NOT forget him! I had the pleasure of meeting him at one of my best friend's parties, and he left me so dumbfounded I had to bring him for my own birthday!
Allen's magic is great, and he really performs all of the tricks, card tricks, reading minds, things disappear and appear somewhere else... you name it! He includes phrases and clever puns/jokes that make him a great entertainer to both adults and kids. During his tricks, I tried to prevent myself from blinking and tried to keep my eyes open...I still can't figure out how he did ANY of his tricks! He's great and would recommend hiring him as an entertainer!!
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!
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.
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: $300+ for performances, $50 for lessons
