Response from Glenda & Mike's Magic & Ventriloquism Show:
Your group was a wonderful audience. Their laughter was amazing. Thanks for inviting us to eat with everyone. The meal was superb.
We hired Mike and Glenda for our county employee Christmas Party. Our employees consist of men and women of all ages. The show that Mike and Glenda put on was for an hour and was fantastic. The magic was good, the ventriloquism was great. We all laughed and had a great time. Wish there had been a little more ventriloquism, very funny. Thank you for providing us with great show!
Mike and Glenda did a presentation for our state conference at our formal banquet. There was something for everyone to enjoy. Laughs galore. I would love to see them again.

What to Expect
Our show consists of fast paced magic, comedy, and ventriloquism. Audience volunteers are used throughout the show. Many times office staff or even the CEO is chosen for hilarious routines. Each segment lasts from three to five minutes with 60 minutes being the average total. Glenda and I alternate our routines, creating a variety performance the audience will never forget.

Mike learned his art by checking books out of the library on ventriloquism and then spending thousands of hours practicing. He has always been fascinated by ventriloquists who weave comedy into routines while conversing with their different figures. The technique is to become two different actors. Then while changing the voice to sound unlike your own, controlling the movements of the puppet. Memorizing lines takes lots of rehearsal while ad-libbing is the icing on the cake in a performance. Many times the ventriloquist can tease audience members, the company president, or CEO for extra laughs.
Glenda's interest in performance dates back to her childhood. She was first a musician and vocalist. Her love of illusions also started when she was fascinated by the visual puzzles that always kept her attention. She has attended many magic conventions, as mentioned above, and began writing dialogue while perfecting her magical performance.
Glenda's signature routines include the Linking Rings performed with Hula Hoops, a floating table, the mutilated parasol, and producing live rabbits and doves. She not only works solo, but also performs her illusions while working with her husband, Mike. The two performers together add variety that changes constantly during the performance. Glenda also shows her prowess with large illusions like the Hindu Basket and Metamorphosis (the Substitution Trunk).
Glenda has also produced several different magic tricks that she sells to other magicians.
Additional Booking Notes
We arrive 90 minutes before the start time (minimum) to set up for a show. It is helpful to have the platform, stage, or other performing area (16'x12' if possible) cleared of furniture before their arrival. They will also need at least 40 minutes to remove their equipment following the show. (The Manns prefer to use a stage or raised platform to perform or to set up in a narrow end of the room away from doors and reserve at least 15 feet from a backwall with no audience beside or behind them. The audience should always be out in front of the performing area.)
