The only Northwest magician to be voted through by the judges on America's Got Talent! Xakary can perform the amazing illusion he did on America's Got Talent (where he sawed super-model Heidi Klum in half), and saw one of your audience members in half! Plus, Xakary is Seattle's funniest and most kid-friendly magician--kids absolutely LOVE Xakary's shows!
For birthdays, Xakary makes your child the star of the show. They get to be his special assistant and help make the magic happen. One of those very special things is that they get to help make a real live rabbit appear!

The show was an hour and 15 mins long and totally entertaining.
I had an overly active group of 10 year old boys and they were blown away at his show.
Both adults and children loved his tricks and enjoys thoroughly. I would highly recommend him if you want a fun packed party.
What a delight! Xachary put on a fantastic show for the kids. He kept them laughing and smiling for the entire show. The adults really enjoyed it too. I would definitely hire Xachary for another event.
Our daughter told us that Xakary made her birthday the best ever! He had everyone in the room laughing including the adults! The entertainment value was so good that my wife and I decided to give Mike a $50 tip! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Xacary did a GREAT job with his entertaining magic show for our son's birthday. Very engaging, kids and parents were laughing and entertained! Thanks so much for a memorable time!
The Magical Xakary did a fantastic job entertaining our party of 8-year-olds. I liked that he included several kids in the show (in addition to the birthday girl) and kept the audience laughing with his antics. His pet bunny was a big hit too. Good, clean fun all around. Thank you, Xakary, for making our party memorable!
It was a small group but Xakary had NO trouble getting them to warm up quickly. The magic was so great for the age group. They laughed, particpated and "hung" on EVERYTHING he did. It was a great show...he comes HIGHLY recommended from where I am standing!!

What to Expect
For the client, I make booking the event an easy and smooth process. Smaller events (in-home birthday parties, for example) do not require deposits. I am readily available via phone or email (unless I'm at a performance). You will talk with the performer directly, versus going through an agent or service. On the day of the show, I will show up early, as I understand how important your event is to you, and there's nothing worse than having the performer be late.
For the audience, my goal is to create amazing lifetime memories. I accomplish this with magic, comedy, music, and more, depending on the event. My shows are tailored to the particular audience--for children, for example, my shows for 3-5 year olds are different than my shows for 6-8 year olds, which are different again for 9-10 year olds (the younger children like "silly", the older children like different types of humor). For adults or teen audiences, the show is totally different. For all my shows, the emphasis is on involving the audience members as much as possible--both children and adults want to be the stars of the show. If you're looking for someone who will make fun of or embarrass the audience members, look elsewhere--that's not my style.
For the party parent, you will have a guaranteed 45-60 minutes of your party covered with an amazing show that will keep both the kids and the adults entertained. I encourage photos and video, for those lifetime memories. Plus, my deluxe show includes goodie bags with lots of toys (and a magic wand) that kids love, saving you time and money from having to shop.
For the corporate event planner, I worked in the high-tech industry for 20 years, so I understand what companies are looking for in their entertainment. I am an entertainer who is easy to work with (no extreme demands) , and I am very flexible.
I started performing magic in high school after seeing Doug Henning on television. After college I got a "real job" in the high-tech industry, performing magic for my kids (I have 5).
In 1999, I opened the award-winning "Illusionz Magical Entertainment Center" in Issaquah. Illusionz was a 40,000 square foot family entertainment center that won an award for the best new entertainment center in the country, and was open until 2007, entertaining over a half million people.
I went back to high-tech for a few years while performing magic on the weekends, and then decided to make magic my full time job in 2012. I now perform over 250 shows a year all over the Northwest, and absolutely love my job!
Additional Booking Notes
I provide a high quality sound system if needed, depending on the type of performance. My shows are flexible, and can be performed in just about any type of venue. Specific details will be discussed based on the type of show.

Influences & Inspiration
Growing up, I saw Doug Henning on television, and the first trick that I performed publicly was a trick that Doug did on TV. I still perform the trick as a tribute to Doug, although I'm much better at it now. :)
