Magic that mystifies the mind, enriches the soul and enchants the heart.
The magic I specialize in is called close-up sleight of hand magic; it works very well for events where strolling and interaction with many guests is needed. I also perform a stand up sleight of hand magic show for larger audiences.
I engage the audience with impossible magical feats up close and personal. The magic is interactive and creates a very fun and very memorable occasion.
I have been performing professionally for over 40 years and just recently returned from Las Vegas where I was the resident magician at the very family oriented, Excalibur Hotel and Casino.
Steven Paul Carlson was the absolute highlight of my son’s 5th Birthday Party! He kept everyone (2 year olds to adults) entertained for the entire show with humor and outstanding illusions. He was professional and courteous during the whole booking to show time process and made sure to include our son in his act along with others from the audience which is always so much fun. Everyone thought that he was just fantastic which made me the hero for hiring such a wonderful Magician! I wholeheartedly recommend Steven Paul Carlson- you will not be disappointed!!
Steven was way more than we expected, especially for his pricing! One of the guests stated that he made them believe in Real magic! There's so much more I could say but you really just gotta check it out for yourself! Will hire again!!!
Steven was the entertainment for our apartment community resident Halloween party. He did great with children and entertained the adults as well. Prior to booking, he responded to any questions quickly. He showed up for the event on time and performed the agreed amount of time. He rates were very reasonable and I would highly recommend him!
Steven had the capability to capture 15 kids + adult’s attention in his show with his captivating magic and genuine personality! He was seriously spectacular! I never write reviews, but felt compelled as Steven blew us ALL away! Wow! THE BEST!!!!
Everybody at our party really enjoyed the up close magic. Steven was very entertaining - he has everybody still talking about it! We would highly recommend Steven.
Very nice routine, kids and adults loved it equally
Steven was great! He worked the crowd at our opening reception and had people engaged with him and each other - it was exactly what we were looking for as an ice breaker for our group. We definitely recommend Steven, great magician and super easy to work with!
Steven performed as a strolling magician during our celebration at our annual Day of Caring event. Primary audience was high school students. His magic amazed and entertained students throughout the afternoon, as he strolled around the campus. Students were intrigued and captivated. It was a delight to watch their reactions of laughter and amazement as he performed his magic!
Steven did a nice job of performing magic for my child's 7th birthday party.
