What to Expect
I provide astounding, elegant and funny magic for adults. This is not your kids' magician. Think cocktails, mentalism, ropes, cards and coins - and laughs. Lots of laughs. Guests will talk about it long afterwards.
The stage act combines magic and comedy with a music backdrop for an exciting and funny performance with lots of audience participation. There will usually be at least six "volunteers" on stage with me during a typical one hour stage show.
The close up magic is usually performed on a strolling basis although a stationary location works great as well. This is more intimate magic -- right under the noses of the audience -- with lots of sleight of hand as well as humor. I use cards, coins, mints, lighters, etc. to ensure the unexpected happens.
I've been doing close up and stage magic for years and I'm a magician member of the Magic Castle in Hollywood CA. This is tuxedo-class magic -- not clown shoes and balloon animals. I don't do kiddie shows but focus on the adult sense of humor and “wow” factor. Many performers try to do both children's shows and adults', but I keep my act tuned in to the adult crowd. I worked my way through law school doing magic but still perform because I love to make people gasp and believe the impossible is possible. Please see my “Planning Your Event” page at kristoffthemagician.com. I'm also on Facebook as Kristoff the Magician. You can find additional reviews if you Google, “Kristoff The Magician.”
I started doing magic when I was six, and I was performing in restaurants (and my dad's bar) at age 12. I continued throughout college and law school and I'm a full magician member of the Academy of Magical Arts out of the Magic Castle in Hollywood CA. As to my original training, I worked my way through college and law school performing sleight of hand close up magic in restaurants and bars – decades ago. After my law practice was well established, I returned to my passion -- doing magic and making people laugh while being astounded. For the past several years I've been performing in major markets around the U.S., the Caribbean and Bermuda as I now provide full length stage shows as well as strolling close up and parlor magic.
Additional Booking Notes
For large stage performances, an elevated platform/stage or tiered seating is required, and a sound system for music. Jumbo screen/camera options is a great touch, but not required.
