I mainly specialize in Close-Up magic. I can either stroll around during an event during cocktail hour for example, and be intimate with your guest or I can provide a formal Close-Up show.I have been performing at the World Famous Magic Castle's Close Up Gallery for the past 7 years and still a regular performer there.
We recently booked Tam Vo for a prom and have already received very good feedback! He was prompt, professional, and personable. He handled performing for a very large crowd (500+ students) and he was such a hit with the kids. Definitely book Tam Vo for your next event!
BOOK THIS GUY!
Tam Vo showed up on time, professional and was a joy to have at our recent holiday party for 2013 at the beautiful Casa Del Mar Hotel in Santa Monica. After strolling around doing amazing tricks to got everyone going, he then sat down and performed his Magic Castle close-up magic performance for 30 minutes. He wowed the crowd..this young guy has a bright future. Book him while he's affordable for your next party!
Tam Vo does such a wonderful job of keeping your interest and then leaving you wondering what just happened? He is such a professional. He showed up on time and was ready when needed. I received such favorable comments from everyone in our small group of people. It's very easy to recommend Tam Vo for any group event.
Tam was so wonderful. People gasped out loud and clapped during his performance. Even the day after, we kept talking about his show throughout the day. He was also a lovely person.
Tam made our corporate event a huge success. The guests were highly entertained and he worked the room brilliantly. We highly recommend Tam as an illusionist and we would absolutely use him again.
Our guests loved Tam Vo!
Tam was a delight at my firm's business mixer. I will definitely be referring his services and keep him in mind for my next event.
Hired Tan for our reception, everyone loved him! I was astounded by his skill!
Response from Close-Up Illusions of Tam Vo:
WOW! I cannot recommend Tam Vo enough! He is a fantastic magician and his presentation skills are amazing! We hired him for our wedding to perform strolling magic during the reception. He showed up early and well-dressed. My guests were coming up to me all night telling me how the magician blew their minds. I would hear laughs, yelling, and gasps and would turn around to see Tam stunning my guests with a trick. It was so apparent how much fun everyone was having! He’s incredibly funny and one hell of a performer! His tricks are smooth and flawless. As a magic enthusiast, I’ve seen a lot of magicians, but none have had the whole package of personality, professionalism, presentation, and skill quite like Tam does. I guarantee you won’t regret hiring Tam for your event. I would 100% recommend him.
Tam was the hit of the party!!! I HIGHLY recommend Tam!!!
Tam was a huge hit at our wedding. Our guests were stunned at the tricks he performed and loved his style. He's very friendly and professional. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to add a unique element to an event. Well worth it!
Thank you Tam!
I hired Tam to perform for my reception guests at my wedding while photos were being taken after the ceremony. Every so often we would hear an upraising of "WHOOOH" from the other side of the garden area and we knew that Tam had wowed a new group of people. I was able to see him perform for my new husband and I and we were invited to see him at the Magic Castle. Tam is courteous, amazing, professional and will blow your mind in front of your eyes. He really is a wonderful practitioner of his craft. More magicians should be at weddings!
Tam kept my guests and myself thoroughly entertained and in absolute awe! So glad I hired him and will definitely hire him again in the future!
There were two geniuses at my wife's birthday party last night. One was strolling around entertaining our guests with close up magic and the other one was me , for finding and hiring Tam Vo! The two comments I kept hearing were "This guy is great!" And " How did find him?" Thanks Tam, for making the party a success and making me look good too!
Our staff of 15 employees were left completely speechless! Phenomenal magician, can't wait for another opportunity to see Tam perform again!!!
Tam was amazing! Everyone at our party, young and old raved about him! What a fun addition to our annual party! I will have him again! Thanks Tam, you are so talented!
Tam and Laurel were an unexpected surprise for our guests and they absolutely loved them!! So many have requested your info for their future parties! Awesome job guys, I'll highly recommend you anytime!
This is my 2nd time to write a review about the special talent of Tam Vo. 1st one lost in cyperspace.
My guests are still saying "how did he do that?" He was a professional in every sense of the word. The private dining room was very small, so it truly was close-up magic. Hire this guy for your next event, you will amazed & entertained.
If you need a magician that can impress and wow, Tam's your guy!! I met him at another event where he impressed me so much I hired him for my birthday party. I had him do table side tricks and a 15 min show at the party and he went over great! In fact, my guests are still talking about him with amazement in their eyes, weeks later.
He also was professional, gracious and personable. I recommend him for your party needs.
Tam performed at a party I hosted. Wow! I was expecting someone good, but he was even better than I expected. I would highly recommend him! Professional. Talented. Enjoyable to watch.
Tam is an excellent magician/illusionist. He was exactly what I needed for my 2000+people. He was easy to work with and he knew what I wanted. Tam also kept in good communication and was very prompted as well. I would hire him again.
I first met Tam while attending one of his performances at the Magic Castle. Tam is an entrancing performer that took my breath away! His performance was far from the cheesy, loud, and comedic shows I had seen that night. It was a very personal performance, and his slight of hand is the best I have seen in person. If my company budget allows, I will be booking him in a heartbeat for a performance!
I think Tam is an amazing performer who would make any event special. Tam was professional, funny and went above and beyond the call of magic duty to make sure my guests had fun and were entertained. He is smooth, friendly and he does it without being cheesy or annoying, which seems rare in this business. I wish I could have another wedding so I could hire Tam again
What to Expect
My audiences should simply feel amazed and entertained. I am not there to "fool" or to "trick" my audiences, but to simply show them if magic really did exist, this is what it should look like. Whether I am performing strolling magic, or performing a formal close-up show, my audiences will have an evening they will never forget and always talked about, with an additional quiet sense of humor to lighten things up.
Hello, my name is Tam Vo, I currently reside in Southern California. I mainly specialize in the art of Close-Up magic, where the magic does not happen on a stage, but inches away from my audience, or even in their very own hands. I began my interest in magic at the late age of 18. After a year, I was accepted as a Magician Member at the World Famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA, and at the age of 25, I am now a regular Close-Up performer at the Magic Castle. I fell in love with Close-Up Magic because it is magic like no other. It is very intimate and personal to my audience. Only a small hand full of people on this Earth has witness Close-Up Magic, and it is my pleasure to share it with them.

Influences & Inspiration
My main influence has been Lance Burton, the Magician in Las Vegas, who currently is retired. His magic is simple and pure. What he does looks like real magic. He also has a charming personality which has influenced me. Not only do other magicians influence me, musicians influence me as well. When a band plays on stage, you can see the passion they portray while performing. And I want to portray my passion for magic while performing for my audience.
