I am Checkers the Magician and I am available for your party/event.
I specialize in children's magic which includes a lot of physical humor that kids love. I will have your kids laughing out loud the first 30 seconds of the show - Guaranteed! After the magic show I do balloon animals.
There are many videos of me on You Tube (just search for "Checkers the Magician") or visit my website.
His magic show was amazing! Everyone’s loved him!
Checkers Entertainment was a hit! The kids loved the magic show and the balloon twisting. There were lots of laughs. Thanks, Checkers!
Checkers Entertainment was absolutely outstanding! He provided entertainment for our little girl's 8th birthday party. His magic show and balloon twisting were remarkable! He was funny and witty, both entertaining for kids and adults. Very much like a great Pixar film or Disney movie. We were impressed with his ability to keep a group of 20 little kids engaged and laughing. He was punctual, very polite, and simply a joy to be around. We sincerely cannot express just how special he made our evening. Thank you for sharing your gift with us and creating unforgettable memories for our family and friends!
Response from Checkers the Magician:
Thank you for the great review. I had a lot of fun at your party.
We were very pleased and the kids had a blast. Thank you, Checkers, for making our girl feel so special.
Checkers was a fun entertainer who kept everyone laughing, adults and kids. My daughter enjoyed the show and all our guests had a great time!
Checkers was wonderful :) He was funny, and friendly, and did a great job!!! Thank you, Checkers!!! I highly recommend him for your next event!!!
Checkers interacted with the kids, sat for pictures and just made the party the Best
Checkers had the kids AND adults laughing with his comedic magic. Highly recommended!
Checkers was great, he entertained various aged kids and had the adults laughing as well! Thank you again!
The children were laughing the whole time, and they loved the tricks! Thank you!
Just had some guy come in and blow balloons. No show or magic tricks.
Response from Checkers the Magician:
I showed up 15 minutes early and started 15 minutes early. I was told to do balloon twisting by his wife, he never bothered to meet with me. She directed me to do balloon twisting for about 50 kids (In one hour). No one ever said anything about magic. I would have rather done the magic than the balloon twisting. I didn't "Just blow up balloons" I did balloon twisting, using many shapes. In reality, he should have been charged more.
Checkers kept all 15 kids entertained for an hour. He kept control of the room and made the Birthday child feel extra special.
I expected some funny magic tricks which was totally missing. Just did some ballon twisting which was ideally secondary. I have seen other birthday magical shows this was not even close. Very disappointed and waste of money.
Response from Checkers the Magician:
I am sorry you were disappointed with your balloon twisting and magic. I, "Checkers the Magician" was not available for your party and you opted for another performer who featured more balloon twisting than magic.
She reported that when she arrived there were only 2 to 3 kids at the party, so she started with the balloon twisting. Her magic show was geared for younger kids and maybe you were expecting the magic to be more flashy or intense for the adults. She reported that the kids seemed enjoyed the show, and the birthday girl even helped with the magic.
We try our best to please and entertain the guests, and have maintained a 5 star rating for many years.
Checkers was a nice addition to our party. He got the kids involved in the show and they had a blast. Some of his tricks amazed the parents too!
Easy to work with, punctual and professional 😊
kept kids greatly entertained and was very quick with balloon twisting, had enough time for all kids !!
Checkers was a big hit at the party. All the kiddos loved him
He was so good! Entertained the whole time, and the kids were laughing and happy. Parents were laughing too.
He arrived on time And kept the kids attention.
He did an awesome job and the kids loved him
Checkers came for my son's 9th birthday and I think the grownups had as much fun as the kids!
On time, very personable and a great hit. Will definitely re-hire Checkers!
I've hired Checkers the Clown for many events, the most recent July 4, 2012. He is always on time, patient with the kids and entertaining. He can do great comedy magic and balloon art. I will continue to hire him.
