Mark has been performing magic since the age of nine. After earning his B.F.A. in Acting, he performed at Cedar Point's Halloweekends and private parties. Self-taught, he incorporates the sleights and techniques he has learned from many experts in the fields of card, close-up, and stage magic.
The magic he performs is high-caliber close-up and stage magic meticulously chosen for the feelings of impossibility and astonishment the pieces create. His show may go from 45 minutes to several hours depending on the need and interest at the venue.
Mark entertained a group of 9 yr olds at my daughters birthday party. On top of being hilarious and entertaining for the kid (and adults), Mark was professional and kept in constant communication.
I actually received some notes from parents because their kids kept talking about Mark's performance.
I gave them all a strong recommendation.
Mark entertained our Oncology Office Christmas party tonight. We were a rowdy crowd and he reigned supreme! Thanks for keeping us laughing and cheering in amazement. You were great!
Mark Mesmerized and entertained kids and adults ! Would highly recommend him !
Mark was wonderful. The kids and adults both loved his work. He was professional, timely, funny, and most of all, entertaining. We couldn't have picked a better choice for our boy/girl twins 7th birthday party. We would certainly use Mark again if the need arises.
Mark was an excellent performer. We hired him for our sons 1st Birthday party this past Saturday and the kids (and adults) really enjoyed his performance. We had a few late arrivals and some noisy traffic and Mark was a real pro at working all of the disruptions into to his performance. I highly recommend him for any event and will most likely hire him again for my next gathering. Thanks Mark for making my sons first Birthday awesome.
Response from Mark J. Cook:
Thank you so much Amber for your kind words! Please keep me in mind for the future!
We held a Christmas party for our Tiger Cub Scouts and their siblings. Mr. Cook was our special guest as we were working on our Magical adventures belt loop. We had young and older kids and they all loved his show. He was courteous and arrived promptly even during a snow storm. He even had the adults laughing. If you are looking for a magician, Mark should be your first choice. If we have another event like this, he would be the first one we call!
Mark was amazing. Everyone (kids & adults) walked away raving about his show: Magic, Comedy & Audience Participation. Would highly recommend Mark to anyone.
Mark did an amazing job. The kids couldn't get enough of his tricks. He was very accommodating and amusing. We wouldn't hesitate to have him perform for us in the future.
Excellent for both kids and adults. Extremely professional and very entertaining. His performance was unique and energetic; thanks!
Mark's show was GREAT! It was a small crowd of about 35 people but Mark paid attention to the youngest and oldest people there. His magic show is excellent, his personality is very funny and Mark was so easy to coordinate with. I'd recommend him without reservation!
Mark was a true professional and a great showman! Kept all the kids attention and made sure to include all the children.
Response from Mark J. Cook:

Response from Mark J. Cook:
Thank you Laurie! Keep me in mind for the future!
Mark was marvelous: his magic tricks - we couldn't figure out how he did them; his presentation - using the audience and his variety of tricks; and his personality - very engaging with a wonderful sense of humor. Overall, Mark made our special birthday celebration truly magical. I would highly recommend him.
We had our annual block party at our Powdermill Village Properties & Mark took the stage & brought 4 hours of FUN, illusions, art, laughter, craftiness, and pure MAGIC that lit up not only my childrens' eyes, but all of the children here for those hours.
He's truly talented, has such charisma, charm, great with the crowd, and provided such joy. Even the adults were entertained and wondered how could Mark be SO MAGICAL?! "How does he do that?!" I truly loved the shows, the art, and most of all the way he had such grace & charm at the same time as he showed the crowd illusions & magic. Truly amazing! You sure DO need to hire him for your next events! Your children will be laughing & have so much fun. Thank you.
