Forget what you know. What you think. What you may have believed. A skilled performer, Master Mentalist, and Psychic Mind Reader, Daniel will have you questioning reality and the existence of magic.
Daniel astounds audiences of all ages with magic, mental, and psychological tricks crafted to confound, amaze, and amuse. In a highly interactive show, he mystifyingly reads the innermost thoughts of his audience—revealing names, dates, places, phone numbers, hobbies, and more.
Eyes taped shut and blindfolded, Daniel can psychically see objects in the room, bend a metal fork like putty using the power of his mind, and enthrall audiences with a bevy of miraculous, mind-boggling effects.
We hired Daniel to surprise our Mom Me Me Jane on her 79th Birthday. She was so excited and loved having him be her surprise with his fabulous magical skills.
Daniel included the whole family to help out with his magic and everyone had such a great time. We highly recommend Daniel and will call on him again to entertain us..
Daniel Schaffer was wonderful! He arrived and set up early, giving him time to mingle and perform tricks on a personal basis with the children. He was well dressed, used clean language, and was professional and courteous. The tricks were well geared for a younger audience with a couple nicely suited for adults. At booking he asked about the audience and preferred length of show to perform according to our requests. He gave us a great show!
Our guests were amazed and left shaking their heads at his mentalist skills. His show combines music with his act adding to the suspense, mood, and overall experience.
Daniel Schaffer’s performance at Bella Vista Elementary was truly “MAGICAL”! His ability to capture the attention of an audience of kids ranging from ages 2-11 was amazing! He had the kids ooh-ing and aah-ing, screaming at the top of their lungs one minute and silent within seconds. He perfectly combined magic with showmanship to create a fun, entertaining show that the kids talked about for weeks! Their favorite was him escaping from a straight jacket. Teachers and children alike loved his performance. (The only negative comment from one girl was, “The show wasn’t long enough!”) We can’t wait until he appears at our school again!
Daniel was personable and professional. He did some amazing tricks that my friends are still talking about. I highly recommend!!!
Daniel gave an excellent performance at my son's 6 year old birthday party. Ages of the audience ranged from 5 years old to teens to adults. Daniel did a great job of including magic tricks for all ages. He did a few tricks that the little kids just loved! I would definitely ask Daniel back to perform at another party.
Daniel performed at my companies annual Christmas party. We heave been talking about him ever since.
What to Expect
Expect to have a fun time delving into the unbelievable. To those who believe there is no explanation necessary, for those who do not, none will suffice.
I perform psychic magic, I create the illusion of having a 6th sense, this includes multiple stunts like taping my eyes closed, mind reading with books, drawing duplications, newspaper headline predictions, and more up to my hallmark effect where I demonstrate a total psychic experience where I read the innermost thoughts of the audience, revealing names, dates, numbers, hobbies, addresses, drivers license numbers, and more from 6-10 different individuals. I will not say that it is real, but I won't tell you it isn't either. Most people leave my shows excited having witnessed something inexplicable, unfortunately many believe me to be a witch after my shows. I assure you, I am not a witch, unless it is a halloween show then I might take on that persona. My shows are all about participation. I want the audience to have laughs, but most importantly to experience the magic. We have all seen magic but not all of us have experienced it. I bring that experience to everyone with my total psychic experience. I also use volunteers in most of my effects to maximize the experience of the audience.
Experience the incredible. Witness the unbelievable.
A self-taught prestidigitator, psychic, and Master Mentalist, Daniel Schaffer began studying magic at age seven, inspired by Lance Burton. By age 14, he was performing for friends and relatives. In 2014, at age 24, he took his passion for magic and mystery, started SLCMagic, and began performing professionally, choosing to specialize in mentalism.
In the past three years, Daniel has become one of the fastest rising stars in mentalism—performing for companies, corporations, and universities across the U.S., and making numerous television appearances.
Daniel’s personal passion is helping others. He is currently studying Psychology at Weber State University and now incorporates the science of psychology into his show, with the goal of ultimately creating motivational magic.
With over twenty years of magical expertise, plus awe-inspiring psychic and mind-reading ability, Daniel engages his show audiences and allows them to experience and get immersed in the magic. Volunteers feel metal bending in their hands, have names, dates, and numbers pulled from their minds, and witness so much more in a performance designed to puzzle, astonish, and delight.
Additional Booking Notes
Require minimum space of 10' X 5' but prefer to work with as much space as you can give me.
I have all my own audio equipment. My first choice is to plug into the house sound but I can use my own speaker as a back up if that does not produce a good quality.
