Yes, I look like Santa Claus and that makes children immediately take to me. Magic is not my hobby or part time passion. It is my vocation. I have made my living for most of my adult life. I have performed internationally at trade shows and on cruise ships. I am extremely good at what I do. In fact I have won numerous awards for close up and stage magic as well as performer of the year. I perform at over 150 shows per year and that keeps me polished and the best show you will find in San Diego.
If you're looking for the real Santa Claus, you've found him! From his caring way with the children, engaging them individually in conversation, to story time, Christmas carols that are sung as a group and gift giving to the children, Santa Joe is simply the best. Moreover, Santa Joe is just as good with the adults as he is with the children, and is extremely engaging.
After Santa Joe left, everyone wanted to know where I found him as he was amazing, even has the booming, Ho-Ho-Ho and soothing deep voice expected from Santa.
Be clear, this is no mall Santa, but the real deal, and if you're looking for a Santa to entertain children and adults alike, you've found him.
Only thing I would say, which really isn't a negative, but just the way he works is, for those of us who live and die by the calendar, schedules, follow ups and confirmations, don't freak out if you book and then don't hear from him until the day of your event; if you've booked and have a contract, he'll be there even if there is no communication in between.
Santa Joe is your guy and we will continue to book him in the years to come.
Response from Joe Mystic:
I am happy with the comments on my Santa abilities, however I actually consider my communication better than most Santas because I do it with a computer generated written agreement. Once I send an agreement to the client, my computer puts the event on my calendar and I get constant reminders.
Joe did an amazing job entertaining a crowd full of 8 & 9 year olds for our daughter's birthday party. Kept the kids entertained (and some of the adults too). I would absolutely recommend this entertainer to anyone.
What to Expect
What you can expect to see depends on the reason for the show. My show for 6 year olds is different that my show for 60 year olds. What you can always expect to see is a high quality, very entertaining, appropriate show. View my videos on this site and you will see what you can expect at your event.
I have been a professional magician since I was 25 years old. I am not a salesman at a store or a construction worker doing magic as a part time extra income. I am a performing member at The Magic Castle in Hollywood (very prestigious) and have traveled a lot of the world representing companies in their trade show booths. I have also traveled performing on cruise ships.
Additional Booking Notes
I have almost everything I need to perform indoors or out.
I come self contained
First time I've ever hired a magician, Joe didn't disappoint! He was easy to work with and really well-received by our party guests.
Joe was a big hit. People were walking up to me saying how great he was and how amazed they were by his performance. I will definitely consider him for future events.
Joe Mystic was fantastic! He entertained hundreds people for us ages newborn to senior. He was jovial, professional and fun! He accommodated our last minute changes due to the fires in Rancho Bernardo and really came through for us. I highly recommend Joe Mystic!
We had a great time! Joe Mystic was fantastic. He kept everyone in suspense and made everyone laugh at the same time. We definitely would recommend Joe for any party. He is very accommodating. Many of the attendees approached me after the party and asked where I found him and complimented his talent. Thank you for providing easy website access to view the talented people that are available for services like mine.
Joe Mystic was awesome! We loved him, he really involved all the audience. He kept the kids interested for every second. He was really friendly and funny. He did a wonderful job, I think we should definitely have him back, he was worth every penny.
Everyone enjoyed his act, he intermingled with the party, and helped get everything off to a good, fun start. Also, he filled in at the last minute, and I was sooooooo thankful. Would recommend him in a heartbeat, and already have.
I was so pleased with the magic show. The children sat and were entranced with Joe Mystic and as I looked around, so were the adults. I loved the special attention and magic Joe performed for my son who was the birthday boy. The air brush face painting was fast and great and even the adults tried to get in line but we ran out of time. I will hire Joe again and next time for a longer show.
