We had Inspector Magic entertain kids from age 1 to 8 and they all were riveted. We are a nanny agency and every year we have a different entertainer for our nanny's and their charges. They kids were engaged and laughing. He was great. At the end a little girl came up and asked if he could go home with her for her birthday party. So cute!! We will definitely invite him back.
Inspector Magic did a great job with our group! He was very professional and kept his cool and patience with a group of rambunctious and skeptical preteens. The magic tricks were great, the kids and adults had no idea how the tricks worked. Thank you Inspector Magic!
Inspector Magic was a delight at our event of about 120 folk, 68 of whom were highly energetic children. He managed the crowd with practiced ease and entertained both the youth and adults with equal skill. I highly recommend him for your next event, large or small.
Mark/Inspector Magic did a phenomenal job in keeping the attention of 17 1-6 year olds at my daughters birthday party. The kids could not stop laughing…they were literally rolling around on the floor and jumping up and down from laughter. I was worried about the kids not being able to keep their attention throughout the entire performance, but they were entertained the entire time. When my daughter watches videos from her party, she still laughs hysterically at Inspector’s Magic’s tricks! Highly recommended!
WOW! What an impressive job! So happy and thankful we found Mark, I mean Santa here. We plan to bring him back yearly, kids were so excited, and parents too. Was on time, professional, friendly, everything you could ask for. Thank you!
We hired Inspector Magic to make a Santa appearance at our Christmas party and he was completely worth it! He has the right Santa look… from his real beard and every detail on his suit to the twinkle in his eyes. He captivated everyone in the room (both children and adults) with his Santa Stories and worked in specific details we told him about the children. Our kids were blown away that he knew the names of our elves and other specifics about their lives. Inspector Magic brought so much joy to our kids that night and they tell everyone about how the “real Santa” visited our house. We highly recommend Inspector Magic!
Santa came for our Christmas services and was such a hit. He is the real Santa, no doubt! He took photos with the children, interacting with them and being so kind. We also had him walk into our musical program and onto the stage during a song to say hi to everyone and he did such a great job! Highly recommend Inspector Magic as your go to Santa!
Santa was at our Christmas party and was absolutely amazing! He had all of the children and adults mesmerized. I highly recommend his service.
We had the pleasure of working with Inspector Magic during our client event. He was very professional, lifelike, and really exceeded all of our expectations! He showed pictures of his raindeers and answered any questions the kids threw his way. Such an amazing experience!
After our event we got this Facebook review for our event that started with "Most realistic Santa ever ...." and continued into a review of our event. Santa Mark was great to work with both in advance - clarifying expectations, checking on COVID requirements that changed several times in planning and confirming in advance our final details - but was also great with the kids and took really fun photos for the families. I wish our event had been longer so he could have talked to the kids more, but he was all around great for our event.
We had Inspector Magic come for our sons 5th bday yesterday. He was AWESOME. We had kids ranging in age from 2-12 and they all LOVED the show. Even the adults loved it, he is such a great performer and the show had plenty of magic but also plenty of good humor. I don’t think my son has laughed that hard in a long time and he hasn’t stopped talking about how much fun he had. I highly recommend Inspector Magic, he was worth every penny and I am sooo glad we decided to take the chance to hire him for the party.
Response from Inspector Magic:
Thank you so much. I had a fun time, too. The two older boys could not have been sweeter looking out for the younger children, but I’m surprised they didn’t know what sound a yak makes 😂
Inspector Magic was so funny, and the kids loved him. We had a Harry Potter themed birthday and he was so good at bringing things to his show that were relevant and fun! Thank you Inspector Magic!
We had a virtual visit with Santa for Christmas in July. It was fantastic for all involved. Santa made it so personable and totally believable. Kids and parents alike were thrilled!
Really made our event special. Performer is kind, thoughtful, fun and a true rofessional!
Inspector Magic was a huge hit at my daughter’s 6th birthday party! He entertained her, all of her friends and also her older siblings (8 & 10) and their friends as well. He had everyone laughing, clapping and fully engaged the entire show. The kids loved volunteering and being part of his magic show. I highly recommend him!
Response from Inspector Magic:
Thank you so much! It was such fun bringing smiles to so many.
Both the kids and adults were thrilled and very entertained.
Mark did a fantastic job performing for our group of 10 adults! Everyone was entertained and enthralled with the different feats of magic that Mark put on. We will never forget his show as it was so much fun!
Inspector Magic was on time, engaging, and fun for all ages.
Inspector Magic had the kiddos laughing from start to finish. The balloon hats at the end were awesome! He was easy to work with and extremely professional. I highly recommend hiring Inspector Magic.
Inspector Magic was professional, easy to schedule with, and was on time. we hired him for my son's 3rd birthday party. There were kids and adults of all ages there. Inspector Magic was so hilarious and kept the kids' attention the entire time. He also had the adults rolling with laughter. He is so engaging and fun. Highly recommend!
We had Inspector Magic for our sons 6th birthday. And we absolutely are planning to have him for his 7th! He was able to keep 20 kindergarteners (mostly boys!) completely entertained and on their best behavior for a whole hour! What a feat! His magic was super cool - and his ability to communicate with and captivate the minds of that many kids is truly unparalleled! Worth every penny!
Inspector magic was truly magic! The show was so entertaining the kids didn’t want it to stop. Inspector Magic was accommodating, made fun ballon hats at the end and the magic goodie bags was spot on and fun. Highly recommend! Thank you for making the twins birthday so memorable!
Inspector Magic had the room of 5-6 year olds (and adults too!) roaring with laughter and fully engaged throughout his entire show. What a perfect way to celebrate a birthday.
The grandkids really liked Santa. He kept them very entertained with his stories about his reindeer. Was hoping he could have said something personal to each child(I included a little bit about each one) but understand with 17 kids there that would be difficult. Would definitely recommend him and use him again.
He was great! All the children at my son’s party (from all different ages and backgrounds) were super entertained by him!
Inspector Magic was a fantastic choice for my son's 5th birthday party. The kids and parents were thoroughly entertained for an hour, and they were 4 and 5 years old's!!! I highly recommend Inspector Magic for anyone's party! I also recommend buying the party favors from him. The kids really enjoyed the take home magic tricks. Thank you for a great party Inspector Magic!
Inspector Magic was a wonderful part of our 4 year old daughter's birthday party. He kept kids and adults laughing and in awe for the entire show. We are still talking about the show several days later. Thank you for showing us all such a good time!
The kids were excited from beginning to end
We had so much fun and couldn't thank Santa himself enough! He was amazing with all the kiddos and so very authentic! We will definitely be booking next year!!
He was magical! We will definitely hire him again next year! He took time with every kid and answered all their questions. He made everyone’s night, parents were in amazement of what a great Santa he was!
The looks on the children’s faces were indescribable. Very professional, on time and wonderful with all guests!!
Inspector Magic (Mark) was a fantastic Santa Claus for our book sale! He was very professional and the children had a wonderful time visiting with him. We will definitely be using him again in the future!
Response from Inspector Magic:
Thank you so much! I am looking forward to seeing you next year. Merry Christmas!
We had Inspector Magic out to our library for a Harry Potter themed magic show as part of our Summer Reading finale and Harry Potter 20th Anniversary celebration. The kids were all very engaged and enthusiastic and the parents loved the show as well. We received lots of wonderful feedback from patrons and would definitely book Inspector Magic again.
Inspector Magic did such an engaging job at my daughter's 6th Birthday that all the other birthday parties around us at the other park pavilions stopped to come watch. We did a Willy Wonka party theme and he adapted his magic show to go along with the theme, even providing music to match. I couldn't believe how engaged the entire group of kids were for almost an hour. He was also extremely accommodating by hosting some group games for my daughter as well. We will all remember this party for years to come. Thanks for making it magical Inspector Magic!
Response from Inspector Magic:
Thank you so much for the nice review. It was a beautiful day filled with magic, laughter and fun!
Inspector Magic didn’t just play Santa, he embodied everything that makes Santa magic for little kids. Despite the chaos of our party, he managed to be kind and patient, and truly connect with each child.
Thank you inspector Magic for an amazing event the kids will always remember!
We had a family/friend Christmas party last night and had Santa come. He did an amazing job. He took time with every child and we had over 20. We had a couple of kids that were not excepted when I made the original plans. Two of of children are in foster care and joined our friends recently. You made their night and Christmas. It worked out perfectly when you arrived and left there was a plane with flashing red light. The little ones waved to Santa as he flew away.
Response from Inspector Magic:
Thank you Paula! By the way, that was not a plane. It was Rudolph!
Inspector Magic was an amazing Santa for our group Christmas party. Very professional and everyone kept commenting on how well he looked. The kids loved seeing him. We will absolutely use him again next year. Thank you!
Great performance for our preschoolers.
We hired Inspector Magic for our daughters 6th bday...We had kids of all ages and adults too, everyone enjoyed the show. We even heard some of the kids shouting "This is the best party ever!"
We hired Inspector Magic to perform at our 8 year old daughter's birthday party. Our guests (from babies on up) enjoyed the show. Baxter the bunny is adorable:) Great job, Inspector Magic!!!
Inspector Magic came to entertain a large group (20) of 7-8 year olds for a birthday party. The kids LOVED him and were completely entertained for the entire length of the show. They were either laughing or in awe at all times. He was able to easily handle a large group of young kids and the random things they do. The adults present were equally enamored by the magic! I would highly recommend.
We had Inspector Magic come to a Blue and Gold Dinner to perform for the Cub Scouts. The kids LOVED it! My son is still talking about it. Inspector Magic did a show with a Cub Scout theme that tied in perfectly to our Arrow of Light ceremony for the boys who were moving on to Boy Scouts. The adults enjoyed it too. It was perfect entertainment for our event.

He was the National President of the Society of Americna Magicians, performing all over the U.S. from Seattle to Miami and Boston to Pheonix.

To help in your search of the best affordable entertainment, here are some FAQ:
Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Search for someone who has been in the business for a while, is professional and pleasant during your initial contact, and makes the engagment simple and easy for you. Review their website content - is it professional or is it cluttered and confusing? Check out ours at www.inspectormagic.com
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Is the magician respected by other magicians? (Inspector Magic is often the magician of choice others refer to if they are unavailable)
Have they been mentored by other seasoned professionals by being a member of the Society of American Magicians? (Inspector Magic was the National President of this organization of 6,000 magicians from 2010-2011).
Have they been involved teaching youth or performing for children at schools? (Inspector Magic often performs Character building, Bully-proof, and environment shows for area school assemblies and teaches magic workshops at after-school programs and libraries).
Do they have insurance and been background checked? (Inspector Magic has had a continuous $1 million policy for over 25 years. It has been a privilege and duty to undergo background checks for all Colorado School Districts).
Q. Do you have references?
A. Inspector Magic builds long-term relationships with his clients, and upon their approval, can provide you direct access to them. Many notable quotes are peppered throughout his website
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. Buyers need to know the date and approximate time of the show, but be flexible in case that time is already taken. Think about the space in your home where all the kids can assemble. Let the entertainer know of any special needs your child (or guests) might need.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Professional. As we begin our relationship, I want you to be completely comfortable and at ease with my service. I want to build this relationship so you, like many of my clients, will consider me again next year or for your other children's birthdays (or for your office party or anniversary celebration). Then, I want to deliver and exceed your expectations.
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. YES! To avoid becoming "dated," magicians need to be inspired and rework their shows constantly. Some have been doing the same show they did 20 years ago, with the same jokes that are no longer that funny. The best way to stay creative is attend an intensive Magician Convention. These 3-5 day events include performances by the world's best magicians, lectures, contests, and mingling with like-minded performers. In addition to learning experiences with his involvement with The Magic Castle in L.A. and The Magic Circle in London, he attends many other seminars annually, and teaches at many of these. He is the S.A.M. Convention Chair since 2014, organizing the annual event for up to 1,400 magicians.
Q. What is your greatest strength?
A. Creativity! Inspector Magic has many shows to chose from. Each is different and has a great theme. If you do not see a theme your child would absolutely enjoy, let us know and we will create a one-of-a-kind show just for you!
Q. Do you have a guarantee?
A. Yes! No Risk Money Back Guarantee:
All of my school assembly programs come with a complete no-risk money back guarantee. If my program is not everything you hoped it would be and more, if the students do not have a great time and if you honestly feel like my program was a complete waste of time, you can tear your check up and consider the program to be on me. For added piece of mind, I'll even donate $100.00 to your PTA for wasting your time. In all of my years of presenting educational programs to schools, no one has ever taken me up on this but I still make it available it to every campus to eliminate any risk.
Additional Booking Notes
Inspector Magic stives to be a complete package. He can provide all the staging, lighting, sound and backdrops required for a large show. He can adjust the program if there are unusual restrictrictions at the venue.

Inspector Magic was the National President of the Society of American Magicians, a fraternal organization of 6,000 magicians worldwide. Harry Houdini was also the President of this organization from 1917-1926. Houdini's showmanship and publicity stunts greatly influenced Inspector Magic.
