When I first started to look for something fun and entertaining for my son's 6th birthday, a magician isn't what I first started looking for. I didn't think 4-6 year olds would be into a magician or have the attention span for it.
After some searching for ideas online, I quickly came across Christopher's site and the long list of amazed and thrilled reviews of his show. He also clearly tunes his show specifically to the little kids, so we decided to give him a shot.
It was a very good decision, because many of the kids said that it was the best birthday party they've ever been to. Our son ranked it as one of his top experiences ever, all of the parents and nannies were buzzing about having Christopher at their parties.
Christopher does a tremendous job in advance to ensure you have everything you need for a great party - the thought he's put into the package and planning for you is extraordinary. Super nice guy, and really focused on the result you want, which is a really happy kid and a room full of laughs and fun.
You don't just book him and hope he shows up on time - as soon as you start dealing with him, you realize he's a true professional who remains in contact with you. He is not the cheapest magician out there - he may be the most expensive I saw - but is it really worth risking a no-show or inappropriate amateur to embarrass you and your child? It was worth every penny spent, especially since he includes the loot bags which made it really convenient.
He also really makes sure the birthday child feels special, and is the utmost of professional and kind to the kids and parents.
I would very highly recommend Christopher Cool to anyone looking to have an amazing and exceptional birthday party for children in the 4-7 age group.
Thanks Christopher, you made me look like a hero to my son!
This guy is awesome! My 7 year old had the best birthday ever! The kids (and their Mom's) will be talking about it for a long time to come! Christopher Cool can keep 3 year olds sitting and entertained for an hour, plus he keeps all the kids ( and adults) laughing for the entire show!
This guy is Great! Every Mom needs to hire him.
It's not often you find someone who has good communication skills with adults and children....I can't express enough how happy I was with Chris Cool and his magic show. He is organized and takes control of the entire show. He keeps the children in order while having fun. I was able to sit back and actually enjoy myself too!! His humour is priceless. We had 12 kids and 12 adults at our party, and for the hour and half we were all in hysterics and completely in aww with the show and the kids' reactions. I have organized companies to do something special for special days and have always been disappointed with something. Whether it be their lack of organization, communication, or experience, or show. There isn't one aspect that I can say needs improvement. It was a fantastic experience. One that I rant and rave to all my friends and families about and will continue to do so. Thanks Chris...you rock!!
We had Christopher Cool in for our daughters 6th birthday. Not only did he keep the attention of 12 children for the entire time, but parents as well. A month later, the kids are still talking about the best party ever! The goodie bags are well worth it, the kids played for hours with them after the party (Still playing a month later) Couldn't have picked a better entertainer, can't wait to see him perform again. If a magician is requested again, I won't search out anyone else!
Christopher is the best magician I have witnessed so far when it comes to a children's party. We were lucky to have him for our daughter's 5th birthday party.
He was on time to set up his "stage" and was very friendly with all the kids - he said "hi" to the birthday girl (made sure he would also pay attention to her little sister) and all the other excited kids while setting up, and did high fives and let them know when they should be ready for him. He "took" over even before the show started and even thought of sending everybody to the washroom beforehand (I was impressed - did not think of that) so they could enjoy the whole show. He entertained roughly 25 kids for 1h and the parents watched from the side for parts/the whole show.
It was a pleasure seeing and hearing the kids laughing/screaming a lot and being totally sucked into the show. When I was not watching the show but in the living room entertaining the parents, there was only one topic, how much enjoyment we can hear. Parents and kids had a fun time and I got nothing but compliments for the birthday party.
He was there to take pictures of the birthday girl while she was on stage and for a group photo after, and even led the whole crew to the living room after the show was over.
I would definitively book him again
Christopher Cool made our son's birthday party special, entertaining & fun for both the kids & adults!! I would highly recommend him. Everything went off without a hitch from the first email down to the final payment! He even provided awesome goodie bags & showed the kids a magic trick! Definitely worth it!!!
My son had the best time ever! His friends enjoyed it so much and so did all the adults! So so so worth it. I am so glad I did this for my son. The show was amazing, super funny and entertaining. Lovvvved it
Chris was such a great addition to our lil boy's birthday party this past Sept. 20th. All the kids loved him, all the adults loved him, we all laughed and had a great time! There was several friends getting Chris's contact info and some trying to book with him right away for coming birthday parties for their little ones. We all had a blast thanks to Chris, his creativity, awesome show and sense of humor! If there was a 10 star qualification there would be no doubt we would give it to Chris, he can entertain from 2 years old to 82 years old people, that was the age range our party had! AWESOME!!!! :)
We can't say enough about Christopher Cool. On Time, On Target and kept twelve 6 year olds focused and entertained for over an hour. He was fantastic dealing with the kids. He was patient, humorous and talked with the kids at their level. He was also amazing at making our 6 year old feel like the center of attention and very special. The kids and adults are still talking about the party. We have done many other types of parties like bowling, swimming, petting zoo, laser tag and costume parties and none of them touched our experience with Christopher. His was definitely the best we have had. Totally professional, appropriate and was entertaining for both the kids and adults. Even the loot bags he provided were exceptional. From the initial booking Christopher communicated with us and made us feel very confident in our choice. He provided printable invitations and birthday checklists. He checked back several times in advance of our party and was early to set up and did not rush to leave. He even stayed for a little while longer to show the kids tricks from the loot bag and gave everyone an extra trick. I can't imagine anyone not being completely satisfied with his show.
Christopher Cool was a huge hit with my son and all his friends at his sixth birthday party. Had the kids entertained for the full hour. Some of them are still talking about it days later. Worth the money for sure.
We really enjoyed having Chris do a magic school for a group of 9 year olds. They were engaged and excited to show what they learned. There were a couple younger audience members and he kept it so they could follow along too easily.
Basically Chris entered the house and took charge for a whole hour which made life for me really easy.
Would easily recommend him for any magic birthday!
We were very happy with our choice of entertainer for our son's 6th birthday. Christopher is very professional to deal with and has amazing energy with the kids. The children all loved the show and thought their goody bags were great! I plan events at work and can be very particular about the details and I can honestly say that I was extremely impressed with the booking process and the show.
We had Christopher Cool in for a combined birthday party for our 3 daughters. Christopher managed to keep all of the various ages of children entertained. He included many of the attending children into his show, being sure to have special parts for each of the birthday girls. This was truly a fantastic party! Thanks, Christopher Cool!
We cannot say anything but Christopher Cool was absolutely fantastic! Every kid, young and old, had a great time and laughed! It's been almost a month now since he came for my son's 5th birthday and everyone is still ranting and raving about the show! I wanted my son to have an incredibly memorable 5th birthday and Christopher Cool did the trick! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
Thanks to Chris for a great 8th birthday party for my daughter. All the kids are STILL talking about it and showing each other the tricks he taught them. It's very hands-on which all the kids love!
You know it's a great & successful party when birthday kid & friends say it's the best & most fun birthday party they've ever had. Christopher was professional, funny & entertaining. We had a group of 12 kids ages 7 to 9 & Christopher suggested a hands on learn to do magic party for this age group. It was perfect! Thank you again.
Christopher Cool's show was amazing. My 8 year old son and his party guests loved him. Great combination of magic tricks and comedy. Lots of laughter and ear to ear smiles!!
Christopher was great fun to have at my son's birthday party. My son has always been into magic, so having Christopher come out and do a magic workshop with my son and his friends was a big hit. My son is still practicing all of the tricks that he learned!!
Christopher Cool had all the kids at the party roaring with laughter! He was very engaging with all the kids and included everyone. I would highly recommend him.
Hosting a birthday party for a crowd of 16 toddlers was made easy thanks to a thoughtful and funny magician - Christopher Cool! All the adults were surprised at how well he held the kids' attention and seeing my own kids laugh from the bottom of their hearts is priceless. You even left the adults with an afternoon to remember. Thank you Mr. Cool! We can't wait to see you again.
My son's 4th Birthday was a huge success thanks to Christopher Cool. It was magical to watch one person do what multiple parents could not.... keep 25 kids entertained! Kids were transformed into mini-magicians with the hats & wands and performed magic for days after the party with their magic goodie bags!
We wanted to try something different this year for our son's 6th birthday. He loves magic tricks, so we thought of giving a magician a try. We just did a google search and came across Christopher Cool! He was AMAZING! He by far passed our expectations and the kids loved the show. He includes many of the birthday guests for tricks as well as the birthday child and he is super funny! He was very professional and really seems to enjoy what he does! Most of kids asked him to come to their birthdays. Meeting him was like meeting a celebrity to these kids and they were so excited to have him in our home!
The value was great, treat bags were awesome, he had great communication and his loyalty to his clients is great!
This is the second time that we have had Christopher Cool at a birthday party and we would definately do it again. I found it so relaxing because he did all the work. For just over an hour he kept 15 five year olds and two nine year olds captivated and laughing the entire time. From the minute I enquired about pricing and booking until well after the party was over Christopher was quick with replies, personable and extremely professional. It was like he was part of the family.
I just had Christopher Cool perform for my daughters 6th birthday party and he was fantastic. The booking process was easy, lots of communication leading up to the event, he arrived early on the day and then put on a fantastic show that kept the kids and the adults entertained. It was truly a party the kids will remember and he made the planning so easy for me. Highly recommend.
Christopher Cool was amazing at my son's 7th Birthday party. All of the kids are still talking about it, as are the adults :) I would highly recommend Christopher Cool for any child's birthday party. Very funny, professional and entertaining!
We hired Chris Cool for entertaining in our Son’s 7th birthday party and the kids thoroughly enjoyed his magic show and the event. I must say not just kids but even parents were involved in the magic show and enjoyed the event. Chris is extremely good with the kids and he knows how to keep the audience engaged. We had close to 45 guests, which included over 15 kids. At the end of the party most of the kids wanted to celebrate their Birthday parties with Chris performing…lol. Chris is very friendly, very energetic, and professional who enjoys performing, which makes his show more enjoyable. I would highly recommend Chris Cool for any kids events.
After seeing Christopher Cool at my company Christmas party, my son was certain that he wanted him to perform for his 6th Birthday as well! His performance was great and kept a group of very wiggly 6-7 year old kids entertained and mesmerized! The expressions on their faces were priceless! He looked after everything! Christopher Cool is very professional and a super nice guy. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with a kids party coming up!! Thanks so much!
We had our sons' 5th & 7th birthday parties at home with Christopher Cool and he exceeded our expectations from start to finish. He is an entertainer extraordinaire with a show that kept all 18 kids and us adults involved from start to finish. Highly recommended and contagiously funny!
We really enjoyed Christopher. His professionalism was outstanding and he was right on par with what makes kids laugh! We would definitely bring him back for more!
Christopher Cool is Awesome. He has great communication skills that reassured me the party would go great. Very professional, (props, show, demeanor), on time, answered all questions promptly before and after party. Great clean humor that captivated adults and children (3-9) alike. He kept the us laughing throughout his show and great keeping the kids attention.
Organized and prepared. He wasn't rushed setting up or leaving. Really cool calm and collected
You Need To See His Levitating Trick.
Makes great balloon creations.
I was iffy about the price, but, it was money well spent. He is worth every penny. The kids loved him and he is great at what he does.
He did everything expected and surpassed my expectations.
Christopher put on a terrific show for a group which ranged in age from 3 years to 7 years. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed his show and he was good bringing the children into elements of the show.
Chris showed up early. Was very personal. The show went off without a hitch and he spent extra time after to make sure every kid got there own custom made ballon. He provided the goody bags for all 17 kids and took the time to explain how all the toys/tricks worked. I feel the price tag was well worth the experience and would hire him back in a heart beat. If that's not enough after the fact being a client now he invited us to a show for clients only in August including and show for kids and free food. I really could not have asked for much more. Thank you very much.
Did a fab job...kids were fascinated and literally glued to Christopher. They loved him. Would recommend to anyone who would like a carefree party that kids will talk about for a long while!! Great goodie bag too.
Such a great show! Everyone loved it! We will definately recommend Christopher Cool!
We were very pleased with Christopher Cool for our sons birthday party! He kept all 28 kids entertained and they just loved his tricks! My son even got up with him - which surprised everyone as he can be very shy with new people! Professional from first contact right the way through to show time.
Christopher was the perfect entertainment for our son's fifth birthday party. He was able to keep 20 kids entertained and laughing. He was very interactive, and made my son's birthday a lot of fun!
Christopher Cool put on a great show for my 4 yr olds birthday. He not only captivated the 4 to 6 year olds for over an hour, the adults were fully entertained too! He related well with the kids and had them laughing the entire time. Christopher was very professional and definitely has a talent for entertaining.
Our birthday party had ages from 5-8 and kids had a blast. Adults enjoyed the show too! We would surely recommend the show. Well worth your money spent.
He really entertained to the whole table. His performance added to the meal instead dragging the kids away from meal time. Great fun.
Christopher Cool has entertained us for almost 2 years. We met him by chance at the Country Hills Boston Pizza where he performs every Tuesday night. He was so funny and entertaining we continue to go back time and time again just to see him. He is great with kids, he is fun to talk to, and does very cool magic that we can never figure out! He loves what he does which makes it even more enjoyable for us to watch. Last year he came and performed at my 6year olds birthday party. He was a HUGE hit, the kids absolutely loved him and had a great time, as did the adults. He made our daughters birthday a huge success and the goody bags he brings are fabulous too! I would highly recommend him for birthdays and other fun events. He is really a one of a kind COOL guy that we now also consider a great friend!
Absolutely the best birthday party my boys have ever had! Christopher Cool goes above and beyond!!!
Thank you for a fantastic show for my sons 6th birthday. With 11 noisy boys you were able to keep them all entertained and made the party very easy for me. I would highly reccomened you to all my friends and family.
The kids loved Christopher's show. My son said he had the best birthday ever! Thanks for the performance, we had tons of fun.
We had Chris come to our 7 year old's birthday party and we couldn't have asked for anything more! He kept everyone so entertained and also kept the kids in control so they could get the most out of the show. He is very professional, he showed up early and didn't leave until every child was satisfied with the balloon animal he made for each of them. He left them with fantastic goodie bags that were the talk of the school the next day. We would definitely have him back!
My kids and their friends had a great time watching the show. He made a point to include lots of the kids and the parents had all good things to say too.He kept the chchildren's attention and made the party memorable.

What to Expect
My birthday magic shows are HIGH-ENERGY, HILARIOUS, SUPER-FUN & full of AMAZING MAGIC! The shows are completely age appropriate, squeaky clean funny & will have your child & their guests laughing uncontrollably! *Potty break is recommend before the show.
Kid Loved, Parent Approved! While the show is absolutely kid friendly, there are also lots of jokes that will fly over the kids' heads & will have the adults laughing too!
I make a point to connect with ever single child in the audience, even if it's just a quick joke or a smile. Every child will feel like they were a part of the show! This is extremely important, because kids don't want to just sit & watch a show, they want to participate.
Hi, I'm Christopher Cool - A professional magician born & raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Now Currently residing in Calgary, Alberta. I specialize in entertaining children & family audiences. I perform over 400 magic shows a year at children's birthday parties, preschools, daycares & other family friendly events.
I caught the magic bug when i was only 5 years old after watching a magician perform for my kindergarten class. It wasn't too long after that I received my first magic set. Fast forward a few years & I was cutting my sisters in half, sticking swords through them & making them float in the air! My mom always thought magic was a phase I was going to grow out of, but I never did.
Most magicians strive to land a Vegas gig, but I'm very happy with where i am now & wouldn’t change it for the world. There's nothing better than suiting up with my signature blue suit jacket, red shirt, yellow tie & entertaining children!
