Munsey’s Magic is a show packed with audience participation, comedy, surprises, magic, mystery, mentalism, and more. Children as young as 5 years will be delighted and adults will find themselves to be as surprised as they are fooled (and fooled badly)!!!
Three of the routines seen in the show have been performed on national television by David Copperfield. As Jim Munsey spends the hour plowing through bright, colorful magic props, children and adults alike are astounded by the tricks and illusions. With a “feel” all its own, Munsey’s Magic captivates audience members of all ages and leaves them believing that maybe, just maybe, there really is some magic in this world.
We had a home birthday party for my 6 y/o and I cannot say enough good things about Jim Munsey. During the planning he was communicative and helpful. When he arrived at our house, he patiently answered my child's many questions about what to expect. And during the magic show, he held a group of 25 people, age 2-adult in rapt attention for an hour. We are all still talking about it, days later. My only regret is that I don't host MORE parties that I can hire Jim for. He was an absolutely pleasure to work with, and the party was a huge success thanks to him.
We hired Jim for a double birthday party for my son who was turning 13 and my daughter who was turning 3. As you can imagine with that type of age difference I was trying to find someone that could entertain children of all ages and adults, not a small order. Jim came and was friendly, professional, and so amazing with the kids and adults! His show was incredible and everyone is still talking about, HOW DID HE DO THAT!!! I even have two friends that are going to use him in the future. Trust me, hire him, you will be so thankful that you did!!!
First met Jim 2 years ago when he performed for Cub Scout Pack 712 in Wakefield - large group of loud kids and adults - 40+ people. Jim was well prepared and took control of his magic and the crowd. He was an absolute hit, excellent with the kids and adults. It was such a success, we brought him back again this year and he once again rocked the show. A+.
Jim performed at my daughter's sixth birthday party and was phenomenal. The kids were enthralled and the adults had a blast too. He is wildly talented and I would highly recommend him!
Response from Munsey's Magic:
Thanks, Kelly! I think I had just as much fun as the audience did!
I don't often take time to offer reviews, but we spent such a fabulous and awe-inspiring afternoon with Jim on my grandson's seventh birthday that I have to shout about it. Jim stood out from the moment I made contact with him -- even his email tone is kind and warm. But his show defies description. Absolute mastery of his craft. Absolute understanding of children. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant storyteller. He threads themes through his show that keep the narrative going and the children totally involved. He has a lovable warmth about his presence that makes him a joy to watch. Every trick is more amazing than the last, and he constructs his program so that it's just exactly the right length. It's one big crescendo with an unbelievable ending. And he's so in love with magic, he couldn't help but to show us another trick after the kids had gone back outside (and it completely and utterly boggled our minds.) I loved that he was as hilarious for the adults as he was for the kids. And these are no small-time magic tricks. He needs an hour to set up because the show is so full of big and little moving parts. He brought such sunshine and so much amazement into the birthday party that little James has already asked for him to come back next year. Maybe that's the biggest recommendation of all! I'm so full of gratitude to Jim for being so tremendous at what he does and such a friend to James. I hope you'll have a chance to bring him into your life, too.
Such a fun show for a 70th birthday party. We talked for hours after about "How the heck did he do that?"
Jim came to perform for my husband's 70th birthday party. What a GREAT show! He actually learned additional illusions that would be more appropriate for an adult show before he came to perform for us.
He engages the audience in a really fun way. We are still talking about his mad skills. I would definitely hire him again. Jim is a perfect addition to any party. Your guest will love it.
Jim performed a fantastic show for my wife's surprise 40th birthday party. It was a great entertainment for everyone - kids (3-12) and adults alike. I was really looking for someone professional and not gimmicky. Jim nailed it! He was on time and very engaging with our friends and family. The tricks were fantastic. Couldn't recommend more.
Jim just did a magic show for my son's 5th birthday. All guest were amazed with his show. He had the children's attention for the entire duration of the show. The expressions on the faces proved how engaged the children were.
Adults in the audience were verbally heard asking the same question as the children, "how did he manage to do that?"
Jim also made my son feel special, catering the show to him, and bringing him up as a guest. I won't give away any endings, but will just say, I can't remember my son having such fun!
Professionally, Jim was a pleasure to work with. He responded promptly to several emails. His rates were reasonable, and he came to the gig an hour early to setup.
I would recommend Jim without reservation.
We booked Munsey's Magic for my daughters 9th birthday and could not be more impressed! Both the magic and the magician were incredible! He captivated the childrens attention (and the adults!!) for the full hour and they were begging him for more! They spent the remainder of the party bringing up various tricks followed by "how did he do that?" and "How many sisters did he have?"
He was delightful to communicate with, professional, courteous and just genuinely nice on top of his incredible skills!
We highly recommend Munsey's Magic and would book him again given the opportunity!
From the second Jim contacted me with a quote he was personable, warm, and very professional which is the reason I chose him. Little did I know that on top of that he would be the best magic act I have experienced.
Jim arrived at our house early, to set up.
He mesmerized the children just as much as the adults. We were all left wondering how on earth he did all of his tricks. He certainly provided us not only with lot of fun but with plenty of talk material for days after the party.
He made our daughter's 5th birthday extremely especial, and made her feel special.
Genuinely, look no further. Jim will not disappoint and you will be left believing that real magic does exist in this world. Outstanding, phenomenal!
Jim performed his show for my daughter's 7th birthday and it was an absolute smashing hit. Not only were the kids super entertained (and he managed to keep them in check for a full hour!!!), but so were the adults. My daughter could not stop telling me how she enjoyed the show and the other parents kept asking where I heard of Jim.
All in all, Jim and his show were an excellent choice, one that I warmly recommend. We will definetly ask Jim back for my younger daughter's birthday!
Thanks so much :-)
Jim Munsey recently performed at our daughter’s birthday party and we couldn’t be happier with our choice -- everything was fantastic from start to finish. The show was extremely entertaining for both kids and adults, and Jim handled the 14 screaming 8-year-old girls with humor and patience without missing a beat. Every time the kids thought they had exposed his secrets, Jim would shock them by taking the tricks to a whole new level. After the final trick (which was beyond amazing), the girls were begging for Jim to come to their party, too!
From the minute the show ended, I’ve been dying to set up another party so the rest of my family can check out the show, too!
THANK YOU for the amazing magic show you did for our daughter's 5th birthday!! Simply put, you were fantastic! The children (and parents) could not stop talking about your show! Your stage presence and tricks captivated us all! You truly made Laila's birthday unforgettable. We are so thankful we found you!!!
The real magic to Jim's show..Keeping Twenty-two girls aged 8-9 completely entertained, captivated and filled with excitement for an hour....I bet School teachers would be overjoyed such attention spans.
Seriously, if you are looking for an alternative to that next trampoline, or bounce house type of birthday party, as we were, look no further. Jim's show is an excellent change of pace and truly a major hit with the children. Most of them left asking their mothers why they never had a magician for their birthday parties.
FANTASTIC, Jim !!
The kids were enthralled and had the best time. The parents were laughing up a storm. Jim's humor was the best part of the show for me! HIGHLY recommend Jim to anyone!

I hired Jim to entertain the children at my sons christening lunch, thinking this would give the parents a chance to eat and talk. Jim was so good that most of the parents (including me) ended up in the kids room to watch the show. He had such a good rapport with the kids, but his Magic was mind blowing even to the adults. Everyone was amazed and cannot stop talking about the show. My 6 year old already asked me if we can hire him for his birthday next June. I will definitely hire him again, and I know that other guests at the christening will too. I highly recommend him - you won't be disappointed!
Thanks Jim for putting on a fantastic show for the kids.
We hired Jim for our daughter's 10th birthday party. He was super easy to work with during both the planning process and at the event. He showed up on time, entertained the kids, and was friendly and polite. I don't think it gets any better than that. We'll be reaching out to Jim again when we have another family-friendly event to host!
Highly recommended - hire Jim Munsey's Magic and you won't be disappointed !
