Introduction: I am an award-winning magician from the Birmingham area. I was voted Birmingham Magician of the Year five times, and 2016 Close-up Champion of the WCM and 2020 People's Choice Champion. I can turn your party, meeting, wedding, trade show booth, or show into a fun, interactive, family-friendly event. I am also a corporate trainer with over 20 years of experience with public speaking. I can put together the perfect presentation for your event, corporate meeting, or gathering using a variety of topics, or incorporating the topic or message of your choice. I will make sure your attendees leave retaining the message you want to convey much more effectively than an ordinary meeting ever could. I love the wonder of seeing magic performed right in front of you. I genuinely have fun and enjoy what I do, and it shows in every performance. I am passionate about training as well. Over two decades of working with people to improve their sales, performances, and life goals gives me a unique insight into what works and what doesn't when trying to help people retain knowledge and put into practice everything they learn.

Magician

Brian was flexible to perform at 2 events for me - a work function and a birthday party. At both events, I was blown away and thoroughly entertained as he prepared two completely different acts!!! Loved his card tricks and mentalist! I would highly recommend Brian and plan to hire him again in the future!!

Brian was very entertaining. He was able to capture and retain the audiences attention for the entire hour, which is sometimes difficult with teenagers.

Brian provided entertainment at our wedding, and he was amazing. He was a consummate professional in every way, and kept our guests enthralled the whole time. I did not know what to expect, having never booked a magician before, but it turned out to be the perfect choice for our special day. His magic is spectacular; I still can't get over the card trick he did for us at the end of the night. We had guests ranging in age from 2 - 90 years, but Brian was able to 'tweak' his magic on a dime to fit the situation throughout the entire night. I honestly can't recommend him enough.

There's a reason he's the #1 magician in Birmingham! Everyone laughs, everyone is amazed, and most importantly everyone has a great time. I've worked with Brian on events in the past that people still bring up 2 years later! You'll never regret hiring him!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    First of all, I am a professional magician, not someone who learned a few card tricks from YouTube and decided to try something. I have worked with every kind of crowd imaginable and I know how to make an event fun without resorting to insulting my audience. Your people WILL have fun, and they will be amazed in the process with magic they haven't seen before. The pricing depends on the event and what is required. A standard evening of close-up or walk around magic has an hourly rate, depending upon the length of the event. If a formal parlor show (30-50 people) or stage show (50+ guests) is requested, the rate is for the show itself and length of the show can be decided by the person hiring the evening. Standard parlor and stage shows are usually 60 minutes, but can easily be adjusted to fit the customer's needs. I always work with schools and libraries to give as much of a discount as possible for their events. I know how hard it is to work within a hard-set budget and I want to help if at all possible. If the customer is looking for a motivational speaker, I have several programs available that incorporate magic into the topic at hand, and I am always willing to create something specific for the customer's needs. I actually offer seven different shows, so one is almost guaranteed to fit your needs. You can see them all in detail on my website.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I find out exactly what the customer needs and try to create an act to fulfill that. Each situation and party is different. Do they want me to walk around and entertain, or am I working at a table in an area off to the side where the guests come to me? Do they want a formal show or just relaxed close-up magic? If I am working at a wedding during a reception, I will move between the tables as the wedding party is having photographs taken in another room, mingling with the guests and trying to get as many people involved as possible. If this is a corporate event, I will find out the names of as many people as possible and make this a fun evening involving the boss or company "superstars". If they are needing a motivational speaker, I work with the company to present exactly the presentation they want. I will create any custom presentation for a motivational speech, or I have several that I present regularly if they would like to go that route.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As I stated, I am a professional magician. This is how I pay my bills, so I have to be the best I can be. I have won numerous awards and accolades for my work because I put in the time necessary to polish it and make it the best it can be for your audience. I have been voted Birmingham's "Magician of the Year" five times (2013, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019) by the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 35. I was the 2016 Close-Up Champion at the Winter Carnival of Magic in Pigeon Forge, TN, a magic convention in the Southeastern United States where hundreds of magicians gather to learn and compete. I also won the People's Choice Award 2020 ar the WCM by being voted an audience favorite by those in attendance.. I am the past president of the Magic City Magic Club in Birmingham, Alabama. I have performed at the Stardome Comedy Club in Birmingham on numerous occasions and know how to make the magical evening fun. I was the opening speaker for TedX Birmingham's "Possibilities". I have had over 20 years experience in public speaking in front of large church congregations, schools, business meetings, and corporate gatherings.
