Professor Rich is San Diego's premier kids' magician! He's performed more than 2000 kids' shows, causing GASPING and LAUGHING and POINTING!
At a birthday party your child will be the star of the show! And you'll look like a hero for booking Professor Rich! All the kids will be involved with the magic and the birthday boy or girl will be called on frequently to make the magic happen. Other events where Professor Rich performs are just as exciting .
Professor Rich knows children! He taught in public schools for many years. This gives him a leg up on other magicians. He knows what kids like and how to make them laugh and gasp!
Professor Rich was an amazing addition to my sons 6th birthday party. He had the attention of every child there the entire show! Everyone, including the parents, were laughing and participating. My kids are still talking about his magic show. He was super easy to work with too! Thank you, Professor Rich!
I was a little worried that a bunch of 6-8 year old's would not have the patience to sit through a magic show. However, the mix of comedy, magic and kid participation kept them all entertained throughout the whole event. We even had a couple kids try to figure out the trick and Professor Rich handled them like a pro magician would. He was awesome. Highly recommend for any age group, even the adults were kept entertained :)

What to Expect
Professor Rich makes your job as a party or event planner so much easier. He brings everything he needs...his own table, a sound system, and of course a bunch of tricks. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the show. No preparation or other help needed!
A Professor Rich show is usually 45 minutes long. Unlike at most magic shows, the kids don't just sit quietly, watching the show, with an occasional "Wow" or applause or laugh. No...it's 45 minutes of almost CONTINUOUS laughing, gasping, pointing, and excitement.
Professor Rich can perform almost anywhere...the living room, the backyard, a park, on stage. Kids usually sit on the floor or grass but chairs are certainly fine. The adults often stand or sit in the back. While a Professor Rich kids show has magic for younger folks, the adults love the show because they love seeing their children so incredibly excited. (Professor Rich does do magic for adults also. In fact, he was the San Diego Marriott Hotel magician for several years, performing in their restaurants and for a few special events. But the topic here is kids' shows!)
So expect great entertainment for both kids and adults with no work on your part!
Professor Rich (you can just call him "Rich"!) did his first professional magic show when he was ten. He charged a penny to get in. He's a lot better now! While he was a teacher, Professor Rich did magic at birthday parties and other events on the weekends and during the summers. He also took off four years to do magic full-time. Now he has quit teaching again for more full-time magic.
Professor Rich's natural ability to entertain children was enhanced during his years teaching. He knows what kids love and how to make them laugh and gasp. His shows are FUN!
My list of tricks depends on the ages in the audience. A show for 4 or 5 year-olds, for example, is different than a show for 8 or 9 year-olds. (In addition, my performing style and humor changes with the audiences age.)
Influences & Inspiration
My act is both magic and children's comedy, so I have been influenced both by magicians and children's entertainers of all types.
Professor Rich supplies everything he needs, even the table!
