Professional magician Joel Acevedo would like to put at your services the result of passionately studying and performing the art of magic for over 17 years. From the most intimate gathering to an auditorium of several hundred people, his magic is guaranteed to engage, entertain, and amaze the most intelligent of audiences.
Past clients include individuals and organizations such as Liberty Mutual, IBM and NASA. You can also see Joel performing regularly at Boston's longest magic and comedy show "The Mystery Lounge". You can also catch him at the two-person magic and comedy show "Four-Handed Illusions: An Intimate Evening of Laughs and Wonder" at the historic Hampshire House in Boston.
Joel entertained a group of about 60 corporate sales representatives after dinner. He engaged the audience throughout the room and brought some up on stage. Not only was he hilarious, but his magic was amazing! Everyone was trying to guess how he did the magic stunts the next day??? As the organizer, Joel was a pleasure to work with and highly recommend his act to other meeting planners in the Boston area.
We are still talking about Joel's incredible talent! Hoping to hire him again this year!
We had Joel perform for teens and staff in our summer program. He was funny, energetic and had the audience engaged the entire time! We would recommend Joel for anyone looking for a great evening of entertainment.
I engaged Joel for a harbor dinner cruise for over 200 persons. Many people knew one other, others were found to be sitting on their own. Those were the targets I wanted to Joel to engage. He did a great job, was very personable, enchanting and most of all magical. His expertise was obvious to me in moments and he was able to draw the crowd in on his tableside slight of hand. You won't be sorry to hire him. He kept in close touch with me right up to the event...there were no surprises with Joel. His professionalism is only outweighed by his artistic abilities.
Joel's performance as a kickoff to our Library's summer reading program was first-rate! His rapport with the audience and ability to mesmerize 80+ people varying in ages from 6th grade up to adult is unparalleled. The audience was completely engaged during the entire program! Afterward, Joel was kind enough to personally talk with many viewers and also answered their questions and signed autographs! The library has been receiving positive comments and reviews about Joel even a week after the event! Not to mention that everyone has been saying "How did he do that!" When you hire Joel you'll get a world-class performance by a true professional!
Joel did an hour-long show at my parents' anniversary party for a diverse group of family and friends, from kids to seniors. He created a very warm atmosphere while performing incredible close-up magic, with people seated right next to him and across the table from him. I know we will be remembering the tricks he did and trying to guess how they could possibly be done at many future family gatherings.
Our son saw Joel's performance and insisted to invite him for his Bar Mitzvah party... Such a great choice!
Our guests, kids and adults alike - we mesmerized by magic and charmed by the entertainment.
Now I keep Joel's contact info at hand to give out to all the fired a that heard about the performance from their children... He will be very busy very soon! Rush to see while he is still relatively available!
Joel came in and did a 1 hour show for our VP's retirement gathering with staff. He was great, interacted with everyone, funny and left us in awe on some of the magic. Highly recommend for office parties!
Response from Magician Joel Acevedo:
Thanks for your review Patricia. I'm sorry to find out , through this review, that you thought we didn't have an excellent communication. In 17 years, you are probably one of the clients I have communicated the most both via phone and writing. It usually takes a phone call and a few emails before the signing of the contract and in your case we were communicating all the way through the process; before and after the contract was signed. That said, I hope I can find a way to make it better in a future collaboration.
I'm happy to hear that your guests had a great time and that you consider the experience was professional, flexible, and carried out by an expert; that's what is the most important.
Joel performed at LASO at NU Culture Show and everyone was impressed! He is very talented and everyone was left awed. Thank you so much Joel!
Joel wowed our guests with "strolling" magic during cocktail hour, then again after dinner. Everyone was highly impressed with his talents. The entire event was nothing short of Fantastic!

Joel Acevedo was a kid when he fell in love with magic. He saw a magician whose entertaining performance created emotions in him so memorable that motivated Joel to find ways to share this arcane art with others.
At age 15, he took lessons from two extraordinary magicians: Karlo and Manuel Velasco. Karlo and Manuel studied in Spain and introduced Joel to the structural conception of magic, its theory, and techniques as employed and taught by Spanish masters such as Arturo Ascanio and Juan Tamariz. Shortly after that, Joel started performing professionally in his native country, Puerto Rico.
During later years, Joel combined his studies in Computer Engineering with magic performances for individuals and corporations such as IBM, NASA, Liberty Mutual, and the University of Michigan.
Joel’s passion for the art took him to Madrid, Spain where he took advanced courses at the magic school: La Gran Escuela de la Magia, Ana Tamariz where he now teaches as a guest professor. In addition to performing professionally both locally and internationally, Joel works as an engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Driven by his constant search for guidance and inspiration, Joel traveled to Las Vegas to attend the Magic and Mystery School where he had the pleasure of learning from the hands of master magician Jeff McBride.
Joel is based in Massachusetts, U.S.A. where he performs all around New England. He is the producer and co-star of one of Boston's highest rated shows: Four-Handed Illusions: An Intimate Evening of Laughs and Wonder. In addition to his appearances in private and public events, he is a regular performer at Boston’s original magic cabaret: The Mystery Lounge.
When you hire Joel, you are getting the result of over 17 years of passionate study and contemplation: magic that is engaging, entertaining and amazing. When you hire Joel you are getting emotional responses, guaranteed!
