Response from Magician Larry Maitin:
Thank you! Looking forward to next year.
Larry was professional, on time, and mingled well with the guests. I'm still trying to figure out how he did the trick he performed for me.
My employees loved the entertainment! Thank you!
Larry provided some close-up strolling magic for our company Christmas party this year. He is definitely good at what he does and provided just the level of entertainment and laughs we were looking for. If the chance arises, we will definitely utilize his talents again!
Larry was a wonderful addition to our Magical Miracle Luncheon! He wowed all out guest creating quite the stir of talk of the magician at the event, everyone was comparing his tricks with each other! We had wonderful feedback from guests saying he was a wonderful special touch! Very professional and friendly with our guests! We would highly recommend him for your next function!
Larry was at my husbands 50th and it was a nice touch. People enjoyed his magic and it was done in a very classy way.
We asked Larry to come to a small and unique venue, for a birthday party. He was fantastic, and had the crowd fired up! His tricks were great and he was very good at incorporating members of our party in his tricks. I would definitely ask larry to come back for more parties, and I am positive the birthday boy will!!
We had an all adult party and everyone is still talking about his work. It is fun to see my friends reaction to his tricks. He did strolling magic and had a crowd follow him from table to table. It was a great crowd pleaser and ice breaker. We would hire him again and some of my friends would want to hire him too for their own parties.
We had Larry perform at our congregation's holiday party. He came on time, engaged the crowd well, was reasonably priced, and a pleasure to work with.
Enjoyed having Larry at our fundraising event. He understood what we needed for entertainment and the crowd really enjoyed him. Went above and beyond and really met my expectaitons. Will not hesitate to hire him for next years event!
Larry Maitin performed at my daughters 2nd birthday party. Even as an adult I asked, "How'd he do that!" He is entertaining and funny. He does magic close up table to table for children and adults. An aboslute treat for all ages. I highly recommend him for large or small parties.
Larry was a magician at our son's Bar Mitzvah. He was very engaging with the adults and kids alike. I had many people come up to me and tell me what a great idea it was having him there. Larry is very talented and funny and I would recommend him for your next party!!
Was very easygoing and a big hit with the kids. He works well with a variety of age groups and was an easy person to get to know and works very well with crowds.
Larry did a birthday party for our 10 year daughter. He did a combination of children's party/close-up magic that really entertained a room full of 10 year olds. I would highly recommend Larry for a children's party or adult event. He was very professional and great to work with.
We had a Holiday Open House at our small office, with about 50 to 60 guests. Larry showed up early, spent a little time orienting himself to the space, and then seemingly effortlessly mingled with our guests and performed one-on-one magic. We hadn't announced his appearance beforehand, but his performance was really popular, and guests commented afterwards that his magic was one of the highlight of the evening. I was very pleased!
Larry did a great job at our Halloween party this year. We had kids from 4th-6th grade and he had something for everyone. All the kids enjoyed his entertainment, he was a great fit for our event.
We booked Larry for a Halloween party at our women's fitness studio, Aradia Fitness... and couldn't have been happier! Larry was friendly, funny & approachable. His illusions were captivating and his presentation was top-notch. I was delighted by what I saw and I spoke to several clients who attended who also loved having him there. I highly recommend Larry and would use him again in the future!
Larry is good entertainer and can work a crowd. I have also hired him for a community party where he put on a show for kids and they loved him. He is very professional and prompt. I feel confident when I hire him that he will do a great job.
He was very friendly and professional. He showed up at appropriate time and stayed through to the agreed upon time.
Larry was great with the kids and adults alike. I'd hire him again and recommend him to anyone in need of his services.
Thanks again Larry!
I had the pleasure of viewing Larry Maitin at a restaurant in Myrtle Beach SC. His performance was fun and addictive, I didn't want him to leave. Some magicians dialogue seems campy but his interaction with everyone was so energetic and current. He was great with the kids and intrigued all the adults. You couldn't help but love it! He's grabs your attention and holds it. What I loved the most was how he included the people watching and made us feel like part of the show. We still talk about him and try to figure out how he did the stuff he did. It was great and I'd love to see him again!
We had engaged Larry to perform a magic show for my daughters' birthday party. Larry arrived on time and set up the stage very professionally. He was also very communicative about the details of the show as well as what he needed from us through emails and the phone. The magic show was a great success - he succeeded in keeping the childrens' attention for an hour - we had a mixed age group as well as boys and girls at the party and it was fun for everyone. I would definitely recommend Larry for your event.
Larry was the magician at my daughter’s 7th birthday party. My daughter invited 15 girls to her party and I knew that I needed some sort of entertainment. Larry was perfect! All of the girls loved the magic show. Larry really held their attention and was great with the kids. A lot of the kids participated in the magic tricks, which was exciting for them. The girls were talking about the magic show for days after the party. The parents who stayed at the party also commented on how much fun the magic show was. I enjoyed working with Larry from the time I first called him to book the date until the end of the party. I could not have had the party in my house without Larry’s magic! I would highly recommend Larry to anyone who needs a great magician.
Larry volunteered at our fundraiser, being a unique individual, his talent, and magic tricks made the event a success.
He is amazing with kids and adults, people were mentioning his name and act long after he left. Days after I keep hearing responses and compliments. An attendee said the words of her youngest were “I love it all, the magician, music, this place is paradise!”
We can't wait to use his services very soon again.
Thank you for your magic performance at our family Thanksgiving weekend. Your performance was fantastic - all of our guests were truly amazed. You have a gift and your gift is magic!!
Larry was a roving magician at our son's Bar Mitzvah. We've always thought he was an excellent magician since the first time we saw him perform in about 1997 or so. But the proof is in the pictures. Some of the best photos and video footage are of Larry and our guests when he was doing magic tricks for them. The looks on their faces are priceless. I had several people tell me what a nice touch it was having him there. And though I thought it would mostly benefit the adults, I saw many impressed kids who were privy to his performances. Larry is professional, very talented and a pleasure to have around. We look forward to working with him again soon.
Price Range: $150 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
Spectators will experience a feeling of wonder and amazement in a light hearted way, and will be active participants in many of the magicial demonstrations.
Larry's obsession with magic began with his first magic set at age 7 and he hasn’t stopped since. By age 13, he performed his first professional magic show. In high school, Larry worked as the house magician for an ice-cream parlor in New York City, and continued performing private magic shows through college and graduate school, successfully avoiding ever having a real job.
Recently, Larry has been an instructor for a Wake Technical Community College class in Raleigh North Carolina on "The Art of Magic," a course on “sleight of hand”, and presently serves as an advisor and mentor to the Magic Youth International for the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
Today Magician Larry Maitin resides in Raleigh NC and continues to regularly perform close up and parlor magic, creating for his audiences an entertaining experience of the impossible.
