I throw big birthday bashes at my home for my kids. Christmas is not my thing - it's birthdays! I always spend less than other moms that rent out a party room at jump house or other event locations. I also always provide and run all the entertainment and games, cook, and photograph my parties. Thus my guests enjoy but I work when I'd rather just relax and watch my daughter or son. This year I booked Steve and Still paid less than my friend did renting a party room at a jump house. (Why are jump houses so expensive?) Not only was my home party quieter and more personable, but Steve's entertainment was far and above anything I have ever done. He captivated Everyone and held his show for an hour. Kids were falling off of couches laughing. And the best part? I was able to watch my children enjoy their party without running around like a crazy mom. Steve is excellent at magic and is great with the kids. I highly recommend him.
My daughter had her 8th birthday and we had a wonderful time with Steve’s performance. His magic show not only engaged the older kids but also caught toddlers and adults attention. I couldn’t stop laughing as my 2 year old did magic with Steve. What a great memory for all of us!
My daughter, and 26 other kids, had a blast celebrating her 5th birthday. Steve was wonderful and kept the kids engaged and entertained for the full hour. It was a fun filled full hour! He was right on time and had lots of tricks for the kids. His bunny was a plus for the kids to pet. Even the adults had a great time :) I highly recommend Steve to liven up and to make a party very fun and memorable.
For my son's 6th birthday, I hosted 12 kids and 5 adults. The kids' ages ranged from 4-10 years old. Everyone loved the show. Not only is Steve magically talented, he connected with/engaged the children of all ages and even included a few of the adults in his performance. He was on time, on budget and 100% responsive during the entire process. I highly recommend.
The Kish Magic Show on Nov 2018 was more than what we had envisioned and planned for as it was an awesome magic show. It was thrilling and fun for each of us, young and old.
I cannot remember a birthday party, and especially, a Magic Show in which there was so much laughter and joy. I observed the kids and how they were thrilled by Kish. Kish was absolutely fabulous, fun, and entertaining. He gave us a truly memorable experience which was felt not just by the youngsters, but also the adults. Kish Rocks!!!
Steve again did not disappoint. The crowd loved his act and we all were happy with his show.
Very professional and entertaining...........Hire him for your event.....
You did an amazing job and the kids really enjoyed the show! Thank you so much.
What a great show! Kish The Magish did a wonderful job tailoring his show for a kindergarten audience of 22 kids at our son’s 6th birthday party. He held their complete attention the entire time which is pretty amazing at this age! All the kids were smiling and laughing as Kish performed one of the best magic shows I’ve ever witnessed. Everyone was in awe! If you’re looking for a great time, be it for kids or adults, birthday party or corporate event, Kish The Magish makes magic and great memories happen!
Great show! We had an Easter Party with over 18 youngsters and their parents and Kish keep them all laughing and in awe of his magic and
Illusions. Great high energy showman with friendly professionalism! Thanks Kish! you truly made our gathering awesome fun!
I hired Steve based solely on these reviews here, we didn't know anyone who had seen his act so we were a little skeptical but he did not disappoint! Steve was so professional throughout the hiring process and he is incredibly amusing and really has his act down to a science. He was able to capture the attention of 19, seven-year-old children for an entire hour, without a dull moment. There were lots of laughs, this is sure to be a special memory for our children and for all of the children and adults that attended.
Steve's energy is his strength. It is not often you see sixteen 4-8 year olds attention on one person for a solid hour. He is funny, engaging and of course a great illusionist. He clearly loves what he does. Book him, you will not be disappointed.
I hired for my daughter ‘s 8th birthday party he absolutely delivered a great show. The kids enjoyed it so much and the adults too. Highly recommended!!!
Steve Kish did a great job at my sons first birthday. The adults were entertained just as much as the children. Things went better than I could have hopped for. He left me wondering how in the world he was able to pull off some of his tricks. I just have to accept that it is "magic".
We hired "Kish" the magician for our daughter's 7th birthday party and we were thrilled with our decision! Steve showed up as promised a half an hour before the show and was ready to roll once the children all arrived. His level of professionalism and talent as well as his level of energy were top notch! We will certainly look forward to working with him again in the future and would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone! Thank you Kish for making our little girl's party a huge success!!
I can’t say enough good things about Steve Kish. I had the task of organising the children’s Holiday Party at the Embassy of Australia. We had children from 0-11 plus all of their parents, somehow Steve managed to entertain them all. There was plenty of audience participation, lots of laughs and magic that kept everyone entertained. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steve Kish, he was an absolute pleasure to work with. I’ll be booking next year’s party very soon.
How do you keep a group for 4 year old's entertained for almost an hour? Hire Steve.
Steve was a great addition to our organizations holiday party! Everyone was blown away by his performance and kept us on our toes! We loved that Steve was able to walk around and entertain our staff casually throughout the event vs having a staged performance.
Professional, on-time, courteous
5 yo bday party
Not a lot of props, but enough to keep kids focused and engaged
Silly fun for kids, kept them giggling
Engaged kids by calling most up to be part of performance
Lots of fun, not showy
Super nice magician!
We booked Kish for a birthday/Halloween party for our 7 year old. We were absolutely LUCKY to get him! He showed up on time, set up quietly and was patient as we waited for a few more guests to arrive. Immediately he got the audience involved and grabbed our attention. The kids were fascinated as were the adults. The show was at least 45 minutes though I think we went a little longer as guests arrived a bit late and he wanted them to see a trick or two which I greatly appreciated. My friends grabbed up his cards at the end. My son still hasn't stopped talking about it, he says he thinks he is still "hypnotized"! He also has been spending time on the internet trying to figure out the dollar bill trick! I can't thank Kish enough for making our event extra special!
My wife and I were very happy with Steve Kish's Magic show for our 4 year old son. He showed up early and was ready to go, he was very accomodating to us and was very professional. He worked a crowd of kids from 2 to 12 years old and incorporated all of them in the show, including myself and some of the parents. Most notable is that he was able to get my shy and socially challenged som to come up and be a part of his act a few times. It really made the party. Thank you Steve!
We hired Kish to draw a crowd in front of our tent at a Fall Festival, and draw a crowd he did! He engaged the audience - both youth and adults - and impressed many with his great illusions. We loved that he even ended his set by telling the crowd to head over to our tent so we were able to see more people. He was easy to work with, great to communicate with and we will definitely keep him in mind for future events in our area!
It was a great show all the kids and adults love it and have so much fun. Thanks for make a magical birthday party for my daughter.
We hired Kish for my daughter's 8th birthday. I was skeptical the kids could sit still for an hour, but he was able to keep the kids attention from the moment he started straight through the entire performance. Kish was prompt and was very engaging. In addition I loved that he incorporated many of the kids into the program, with special attention given to the birthday girl. Definitely recommended!
This was an awesome magic show Mr Kish is a great magician that kept us engaged on all his tricks!!!
Hire this illusionist for you event!
You will not be disappointed.
Steve Kish is very professional in appearance, manner and performance.
Steve arrived on time and hit the ground running. His act is first class and very entertaining. Our audience ( a very large one)loved not just the illusions he performed but his interaction with people that made the show more enjoyable and personal for each group he worked with. Steve blended well with everyone and was just a pleasure to work with. .......Bravo!
Steve Kish is an excellent magician who knows the secret to connecting with the audience, be it kids or adults. Everyone in my party enjoyed his performance. Overall I would take up his services again!
Kish the Magician was great! We hired him to perform at our daughters birthday, we had about 20 children ranging 1-16yrs old and he interacted with each and everyone of them including the adults! He kept the children and adults on the edge of their seats, the children laughes and screamed in excitement the entire show! We had such a blast and now all of the kids want Kish to perform at their birthday! Thank you Kish for making our daughters birthday one to remember!
We hired Steve Kish to do a magic show at a neighborhood block party. Our HOA has a large number of 8 to 12 year olds. The kids were totally entertained for the entire hour along with other teenagers and adults. His show is very interactive which keeps the kids interested. Steve was very flexible with scheduling, our first date was rained out. He has a variety of formats if you want to hire him again. It is likely we will use him again next year.
I booked Steve Kish for my daughter's 7th birthday. He is a wonderful performer and magician. He captivated the children and adults alike. He made sure to include all the kids in his performance. The children were completely immersed in the show and it was a huge hit. Steve puts on a great magic show and is incredibly funny. Thank you for making Olivia's birthday so special and magical. She told me that this was her best birthday ever.
Steve performed a "pop up" walking magic show along the park for our festival and kept the children curious and engaged for 2 hours. Highly recommend!
Very easy to talk to and plan. He doesn't require much from logistics. he brings his own table, A/V, etc. It required 1 phone conversation and an exchange of a couple emails with Steve to plan within 2 weeks (he does get booked up). He doesn't overbook or overcommit more than a couple performances in a day, so you don't have to worry about him running late or rushing out afterwards.
Ours was a large event 200+ people with more than 50 kids. Ages of the kids ranged from infant to 10 years old. His acts involved the kids as well as some of the adults (who enjoyed as well!), and was able to keep them engaged for about 45 minutes (we put a time limit as we needed to vacate the hall). Some kids were roudy and trying to grab the mic, but he stayed cool and was able to keep them under control while continuing the show. We couldn't be happier and a few of our guests asked for his contact info because of how awesome they thought it was.
We had Steve the Magician perform at my son's third birthday and he was great! He kept the kids entertained and engaged for the whole show. My son was thrilled and absolutely loved it!
From the second the magic show started the kids were excited and engaged until the end. Steve knows how to handle and communicate with kids. We are glad he performed at our 6 year old's birthday party. We will definitely recommend him to friends.
I called Steve last minute on Sunday. He was able to fulfill my request on short notice. I am glad he did. It was the best magic show I've ever done for my kids. He is a true professional, clever, funny and the whole show was outstanding. The kids loved it and so did the adults. Try him, you won't regret it.
My 4 yearold son and his 24 friends enjoyed the show so much. Steve came early had everything organized and I could tell right away he had so much experience. I give Steve 5 stars.
Steve did a great job at our son's 6th birthday party. The kids were enthralled the entire time. And he was nice and flexible and wasn't a diva like some other children's performers I've hired. I've seen and/or hired several magicians in the area, and Steve was by far the best and most pleasant to work with.

What to Expect
The typical Birthday Party Magic show is a festive 30-60 minute presentation (depending on your needs) featuring comedy magic and audience participation. I always tailor the show to the age level and make sure everyone- including the adults- are fooled and entertained. The audience will be amazed, but most importantly, they will have fun. For older children (8 and up) the repertoire of tricks and comedy is more sophisticated.
Check out the video performance examples.
This is a Magic SHOW and not just a collection of tricks. I am a high energy entertainer who will mesmerize your young guests. My show is engaging and funny. The kids are the stars of the show. I will gauge the personalities of your guests and adjust my performance to suit the audience. Depending on the personality of the Birthday Child, he or she will make the magic happen. I often perform at local fairs, festivals, country clubs, and other family venues.
The show is designed to be performed in your living room, family room, basement or rec center/community room. I provide my magic table and all the props. I usually have the kids sit on the floor directly in front of me with about 4 feet of room between myself and them. I interact with the audience and entertain them.
I hope that answers all of your questions, but if not, please feel free to call me any time. Please give me a call or email me to discuss how I can make my show even more special for your party.
I look forward to speaking with you! Thank you for the interest.
