Booked Nathaniel as a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday. Not only was he extremely professional and easy to work with (booked him last minute) - was one of the most personable and talented magicians I have ever encountered. Nathaniel re-sparks the feelings of imagination and wonder you get from magic as a kid. Thank you again!
Nathaniel did a great magic show for our recent project launch via Zoom. He did a number of tricks for us and he took the time at the end of the show to actually teach us how to do a trick or two. I was impressed by his professionalism and flexibility in designing and delivering a custom show for our somewhat unique needs. I highly recommend him and we wouldn't hesitate to book him again in the future.
I hired Magical Nathaniel to come in as a surprise for my team’s holiday party at my house. We were 20 people in my small house so it was a tight squeeze but Nathaniel made it work! Fun tricks and great personality. Will definitely hire him again!
Nathaniel has such good youthful positive energy, as I discovered as we worked on how he might nail the entrance (by pretending to be a delivery guy!) and charmed the teen crowd, and amazed their discerning minds, as he repeatedly defied expectations and did things which aren't possible! Loved him being there for us!
I hired Nathaniel to preform at my wifes 50th birthday party and he didn't disappoint! First of all, he was very responsive to all my questions and even answered my phone calls! When planning a big event like this, it's always reassuring to have prompt responses. On the night of the event he was right on time. He suggested we do up close magic, which turned out great! We were so impressed with his magic and entertainment! He really turned a good party into a great one!! I would definitely recommend Nathaniel for your next event. Good show!
Created such a lively and fun atmosphere for my 25th party!
Nathanial is so good. First, he’s just super charming. Extremely professional. On top of which he’s so good! Just wow. Everyone from my 11-year-old son to my 80-year-old mother was simply blown away. He’s a tremendously talented illusionist. Hours after he left the guests were still talking about his performance and at the day after brunch. That’s the kind of great impression he made.
Nathaniel was fantastic and put on a great show. He was on time, came prepared and was very professional. Nathaniel made the audience laugh over and over as well as awed them numerous times with his performance. Many people commented on how great the entertainment was in my event feedback.
We had a great time with Nathaniel. He was very entertaining and the crowd really enjoyed themselves.
Magical Nathaniel did a wonderful job of keeping folks at company highly engaged during our 30 minute performance. It was a highlight of the afternoon!
Magical Nathaniel was so good!!! He did a socially distanced show for a birthday in our family. He was professional and respectful, and most of all, brilliant! The adults and the kids were wowed. Great experience!
Magical Nathaniel was great. He interacted with our festival-goers doing close-up magic before he took to the stage. While on stage he invited a group of kids to participate and was very entertaining and captivating. He was very quick to react to unexpected situations in a funny and professional way. He kept everyone in the audience guessing how the tricks were done. Great performance.
Working Magical Nathaniel was a pleasure not only during the show but throughout the whole process. He was always quick to reply, provided all the info we had asked for and was very accommodating when our program was shifted a little. I would recommend him for your events. I know we will work with him again.
Nathaniel was very polite and professional. For the magical act, we were a little disappointed because our age group of kids were expecting more colorful and happening acts than the ones he did. It got a little boring. Kids were not mesmerized. For the money spent, we expected more.
Nathaniel was great Kids and staff alike loved him!
My highschool hired Magical Nathaniel as the magician for an after activity for the banquet and wee could not have been more grateful! He first did some strolling magic as everyone sat at the tables and you could just see how interactive he was with the guests. He did a wonderful job of respecting the guests and still finding great ways to incorporate them in his slight-of-hand magic. Afterward, he performed on stage and did a wonderful job of including audience participation, entertainment, and, of course, magic. There has been talk around the school that his show was the best activity that has been planned for any of our banquets. We would all definitely recommend him again.
He was punctual and very good with the kids and adults. Would hire again.
Professional, ontime, entertaining for kids and adults! Showed up early to setup.
What to Expect
I offer full shows, close up walk around magic, workshops, or other customized entertainment for your event! Whether it is for a corporate event, private party, or other occasion, when you book a show with me, you can expect complete professionalism and low stress for you. In the weeks and days before the event, I will open all lines of communication so you can ask any questions, and expect to get a timely and thorough response. I always check in a few days before the event to make sure all details are set. I provide all necessary equipment and show up early at the venue to set up. During the show, you can expect every person in the audience to be entertained and amazed and your goals are met. In the end, you can expect a great show with minimal hassle and that your guests will be talking about the magic well after the event!
You can expect the same level of professionalism with my online virtual performances.
My full show is great for any event where you would like to have all guests focused on the entertainment during a set time. The show is full of incredible sleight of hand, impossible mind reading, and other mind blowing magic. You will see incredible original effects as well as magic that have even been featured on National TV. My walk around magic is perfect for atmospheric entertainment as I am able to 'roam' from group to group sharing intimate illusions and miracles inches from the spectators faces. I am able to do a combination of these options for your event and can even create customized options to fit your vision for an event.
Thanks for getting in touch and let me know if you have any questions at all. I look forward to working with you and helping to make your next event a success!
"I love magic and see a *lot* of shows. Nathaniel's performance at my company was one of the best I've seen -- his energy, creativity, and professionalism set him apart from the rest. Everyone loved it, the whole company was buzzing after his performance! In addition, he fooled me completely with several effects, which doesn't happen very often..."
