Magic Michael is an award-winning creative magician and balloon twister, entertaining with stage, closeup and parlor magic, juggling and illusions in Maryland, PA, DE, DC, & VA. He gives your event unique magic performed by a magician who entertains and mystifies with stage, close-up, walk-around, table, or street magic, for you and your guests, friends and/or family. He avoids copycat magic that other magicians perform, and entertains with fun and interactive magic that you have not seen before.
Magic Michael can help you specially recognize someone with a gift, or balloons for birthdays and events, or help present a gift of yours. He can also help you make a very magical entrance.
It's hard dealing with preschoolers but the magician put on a lengthy show and showed a lot of patience. The show was very interactive and the kids talked about it all week long!
Great show! His tricks not only amazed the kids, but had us adults scratching our head as well. Great comedy and 1 liners mixed in kept the atmosphere festive throughout his performance. Only problem was my daughter cried when her "balloon Elmo" popped 3 days later, because they had grown quite close, lol. I highly recommend Magic Michael, you will not be disappointed.
The tricks were not much catchy and were dragged too long. It was a slow start and wen the actual magic is shown there was no excitement in the magicians face to get the public involved. Public never came to know wen the magic actually happened.
Response from Magic Michael:
I am sorry that your experience was not the same as the enjoyment which your guests expressed to me right after the show last weekend. As you recall, you changed the show start time and location on the day of the party, and importantly, chose to serve buffet food just prior to and during the show, which unfortunately creates the distraction of eating and food noise during the show. This added to the noise of several other very young toddlers at your 1 year old son's party, including the one child who wandered into my performing area during the show, and again later when we were arranging the Human Xylophone. While little kids are cute to some people, it is very distracting to the performer (me), and apparently to you too, judging by your comments.
I also observed that the kids in the front were reluctant to sit on the restaurant floor in their nice suits and outfits. This is perhaps understandable, but their standing up blocked the view of some guests, and is not as conducive to a show as kids comfortably sitting on a living room or den floor (or in chairs), but I can't make them sit. In retrospect, blankets might have helped addressed this. Also, a microphone might have helped focus your guests during the performance, but your husband indicated not to use it just prior to me starting the performance.
Again I am sorry you were not thrilled with my show. I hope you will contact me privately to see if I can address your observations further, as I always strive to ensure that my magic and show will thoroughly entertain everyone as much as possible, even under less than optimal conditions.
Very organized, well prepared, and punctual. Tried very hard to entertain the children. However, show was a little too long and children lost some interest.
Response from Magic Michael:
Thank you Dana for your feedback. I promised a 1 hour show, and felt obligated to provide that, even if it appeared a few younger kids may have started to get a little restless towards the end. As I specifically mentioned when I arrived, your all hardwood floor would be a rough surface for young kids to sit on for the whole show. A few more chairs, or rug, would have been nice for kids or adult guests.
Also, the Halloween-themed rubber balls that I gave out about half way through my show were a little distracting, and in retrospect, should be given out at the end. Your comment may confirm that lesson learned - thanks! - Magic Michael
Great Job! Thank You!
What to Expect
Expect interactive, engaging and amazing magic, whether close up, parlor (small groups), or stage.
For birthdays, I can help present a gift of yours to the birthday honoree, and for young kids, I present them with a signed copy of a Disney, Marvel or halloween puzzle that we do a magic trick together with during the show.
For balloons, simple to moderate sized balloons, including the favorite balloon animal or character of the birthday honoree or a special guest being recognized or who you just want to make feel special.
You can also expect me to stay a little longer than the typical 1 hour I am hired for, as long as I don't have another magic engagement to get to.
Magic Michael BIO:
I caught the magic bug after seeing Monday Night Magic in New York City. Thanks to the great Denny & Lee Magic shop and other magicians, especially Jeff McBride and his Magic & Mystery School which I attended, I have been fortunate to develop as a magician to entertain and mystify others with unique, fun and interactive magic.
Additional Booking Notes
For stage, parlor or group performances, a formal stage is not always necessary, just some distance between the magician and the group being entertained. Generally, like most magicians, we avoid performing surrounded by people.

The magic performance pieces vary, and can be tailored for young kids audiences, teen audiences, adult audiences, or for Halloween, holidays, or specific party or event themes.
My stage and parlor magic shows usually open with the popular magic popcorn box, includes rope magic, a Rubik's Cube, and ends with a full body levitation.
