Joseph put on an awesome show for my husband’s surprise birthday party! The show was entertaining and hilarious! Definitely looking forward to booking him again!

Works GREAT with kids, but its a show that the adults will totally get a kick out of as well! Lots of audience participation, great photos ops, and TONS of laughs. Would absolutely hire again for any event; easy to work with and entertaining as heck. Absolutely recommend!

I've actually seen Joe Derry perform quite a number of times in several venues. He has always delivered a professional, entertaining show. In fact when he performed at the rib Trader I several times bought extra tickets to take co-workers, friends or family to see his show and to have dinner. I can't think of any accolade higher than that to express how very much I enjoy his humor and his skill! BRAVO!

I.started to see Joseph's many different shows since the 70's from 1500AD to seeing perform at a retirement home to Merlin's Magick dinner theater. His wit fits both young and old. Get's everyone involved. Very professional love that he change the show with the times and environment. I have seen the shows many times love it and will see anytime he perform. I give him a thumbs up... you need to see him in action just tell him Debby King sent you ...I know he will giggle at that....

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

    Our socially distanced birthday party package is singularly priced at $175. This one hour package features a fun-filled comedy magic show, co-starring the birthday child with great giveaways for all the kids. Currently only available for outdoor performances with social distancing and covid precautions.

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

    I speak or communicate with the customer to determine their exact party needs. Once I have an idea of the type of event that is being planned I will suggest entertainment packages to fit the event. If we can agree on date, time, location, and budget the customer will receive confirmation and several suggestions to help make their event special.

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

    I am a life-long magician who has performed thousands of shows for audiences of all ages. My comedy magic has been featured in nightclubs, casinos, fairs, dinner theaters, and countless private parties. I have a great rapport with children's audiences as I am also a full-time elementary school teacher. My Children Of All Ages Show has been performed often at The Magic Castle.
