Fun, interactive magic show with accent on comedy, magic stories, rabbit from hat!
Sleight of hand magic performed in "walk-around" format.
John Tudor was a fantastic addition to my daughter’s 5-year old birthday party. He was both great with the kids and entertaining for the adults. People are still talking about his magic show a week later!
John was great! The kids, ages4-12, were all captivated by his performance. The party was a hit because of John and his magic! Thank you!
Response from Magic of John Tudor:
John Tudor is a true professional in every sense of the word! He absolutely made our grandson's birthday the best yet. From our first contact, his communication, feedback and reassurance to a nervous grandma trying to surprise my grandson-- John was top notch. His performance was riveting, appropriately humorous and frankly amazed not only the children (a large group of kindergarteners) but all of the adults as well!! He handles the children extremely well and I was especially appreciative of his wonderful patience with them. (!!!). I especially appreciated how accessible he made himself to me in texts, emails and phone calls. I wholeheartedly endorse John Tudor for not just children's parties, but all kinds of events. He is extremely versatile and a true gentleman. He was a Huge Hit!
John is an incredibly talented magician and a top notch professional. His magic is mesmerizing and it was always a pleasure to work with him. Disappearing and reappearing in different dresses from his magic props is an experience l can only begin to put words to. If you desire a unique show I highly recommend John Tudor. Now, I have my own professional children's entertainment business as The Balloon Fairy, because of John and other's guidance. As a single mom to have my own flexible business is a gift that I am immensely grateful for. All the more reason to give John a call today!
What to Expect
John Tudor's shows are INTERACTIVE, with the accent on COMEDY, usually leading to a STANDING OVATION. Special guest is Rodney, the TRAINED RABBIT, who is pulled from a hat and performs magic and mind reading.
Before most shows begin, John Tudor warms up the crowd with sleight of hand magic performed close up, interactive tricks with cards, money, wands, soap bubbles, etc. to build anticipation.
MONEY FROM EVERYWHERE Tudor starts strong, with a high impact routine where handfuls of money are pulled out of the air, from the audience, and everywhere.
AUDIENCE MAGIC Interactive audience participation routines follow, where audience members are up on stage in spontaneous comedy situations: like the Floating Present (a levitation that becomes a gift), or Starcle (where an audience member becomes "a star", and takes a star home for a souvenir).
STORY MAGIC Tudor excels at magic stories that stir the emotions, like Drawing Down the Moon (spectators help do magic with moon's phases), and the Haunted Sword (where three selected cards are stabbed in the air).
VISUAL MAGIC Several routines present dazzling spectacles, like making a cloud of colored paper butterflies appear, and silk banners that change colors.

"The audience gasped with delight at Tudor's stylish magicianship." - THE STATE NEWS
John's heartwarming magic has been enjoyed across North America professionally since 1987. He appears in theaters and television, for Fortune 500 companies, and for conferences, and educational venues. His shows are a "magical journey", an energetic mix of imaginative stories and state-of-the-art magic. John's magic is born out of passion and theater; and by pulling rabbits out of hats, he seeks to bring out the magic in everyone. His magic secret is his way with the audience. Everyone becomes part of a performance that "not just entertains, but leaves the audience with opened minds." - (Orangeburg Times) _________________________________________________________
"I would recommend John Tudor without hesitation to any organization that asked. He was very professional, very accommodating, and very entertaining. John arrived early and stayed late; he worked well with the hotel staff, the casino staff and our emcee; he involved the crowd and his show was appropriate for the time of day and the professional crowd attending."
-Susan Longshore, Essex Homes
“John is a 'Class Act' and goes far beyond the usual magician's capabilities. Thanks for a tremendous performance and a professional approach.”
-Peter Burroughs, Coca Cola
"We have booked The Magic of John Tudor a dozen times over the past 5 years. We presented his full show in a 800 seat theatre with full lighting and sound and it was terrific. Especially great with kids. We also use him for festivals, donor receptions and fundraisers. He can work in virtually any setting, with any audience, is funny and his magic tricks are dazzling. Easy to work with, understands the business and will make your event memorable."
-Andrew Witt, Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties
“Fantastic! You're just Fantastic!”
-Millie Grimes, Belfair Oaks Plantation
