I'm Sharpo!® I am a Magician Member of the Academy of Magical Arts at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. I have been producing and performing Magic, Mystery and Comedy events and parties in California since 1992.
My personal brand of entertainment is very interactive. I blend magic and mystery with a healthy dose of comedy! I offer strolling close up card and coin magic, exciting parlor magic and mentalism routines, comedy escape routines, mystery "whodunnit" parties, comedy improv shows and more!
Parties and celebrations make up our most important moments and memories in life so I devote my full energies to each event to make sure it is a smashing success!
From things I had heard about murder mystery this wasn’t quite what I had expected I thought there would have been more interaction between everybody to solve the murder.
We had approximately 50 guests for dinner. Everyone had a great time. The positive feedback received was incredible. This was not surprising as we have seen Sharpo Entertainment in the past. The actors never let us down.
Thank you, we will definitely be using you again...
Showed up on time . Did a great job. Funny, friendly and super entertaining! Thanks!!

Additional Booking Notes
Self contained! I bring all props, prizes costumes, mics, P.A. & speakers when needed. (I don't do lighting as usually all venues have adequate light. I have special lighting effects for specific routines. I play to the space as well as the audience so house lights are usually fine.)
My Close Up Magic Can be strolling and performed almost anywhere!
My Parlor Magic Show just needs a small front and center area for my table and clear sight lines for my audience.
Specific to our mysteries: I bring:
Customized & Personalized Murder Mystery, All On-site Event Coordination,
Physical Clues and Red Herrings, Casting of additional Professional Performers as needed
Welcome Instructions, Solution Forms, Pens and/or Pencils, Prizes for Best/Worst Solution to Mystery,
General Liability Insurance.
