Introduction: Hello, My name is Steve Wastell. Hope you're having a great day! I am a Medal Winner and regular performer at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. I think you'll find my performances distinctive from most others. I design my shows to be more unexpected than regular commercial magic and I guarantee you will see jaws drop in amazement. Think David Blaine or Kris Angel with a sense of humor :) I really believe a true magician doesn't merely "do tricks". A true magician connects with their audience and takes them to a place of wonder. My shows are infused with humor, so your guests will always leave with a smile on their faces and a story to tell for days afterward. Please watch my videos and read my reviews here and on Yelp. I am also always willing to work with your budget. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Steve I love the connection with people. It's not about fooling people or even doing a fun trick. It's about taking someones day and making it special, making an impression, something they talk about and remember.

We hired Steve for our company event this year which was set on a boat cruise around the marina. We wanted to have a strolling magician who can keep the employees and families entertained throughout the cruise. Steve performed many tricks to many groups that received a lot of applause and surprise faces from the audience who couldn't believe what they were seeing right in front of their eyes. He's really good at his profession, is a great entertainer, and knows how to work the crowd with his many tricks. In addition, Steve was professional and flexible with working with us to accommodate the needs of the company and the event. We would highly recommend him for any event and would definitely hire him again.

Wanted to find a magician to perform at my son’s college graduation party. Was very particular in my needs. Not only did I want someone who would dazzle my guests with tricks that defied explanation, I wanted someone who could identify and establish a connection with this crowd of college aged kids. Steve exceeded my expectations. He mingled with my guests performing magic at close range. Cards, mind tricks, transformations. Even transforming things that were being clenched tightly in the fists of my amazed guests. I know how difficult it is to find the right magician to perform at your event. You can hire Steve with confidence…..The only thing missing is the wand.

We invited Steve Wastell to our home for a combination 30th and 60th Birthday party for an hour show. He responded very quickly when I inquired about his services. Was very friendly and cooperative to work with our party arrangements and what options could be done. Was very pleased with all the before hand arrangements. Day of party he arrived on time and early for set up and to introduce himself and get the feel of the party. He made everyone feel relaxed and very interactive with the crowd. Magic was terrific all the guests afterwards had nothing but good things to say and was surprised for a magician to come to a home gathering what a professional show he had as if we were at the Magic Castle! Would definitely call him back and recommend him to all kinds of functions!

We had Steve as a strolling magician at a party we had. He went from table to table "wowing" are guests. Everyone was very impressed...both young and old. Would highly recommend him to entertain at any event!

FAQs

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

    At first glance, it may seem like my pricing is a bit higher than some but like most things, I believe you really do get what you pay for. My pricing is based on an hourly rate for walkaround magic. A show is a little bit more but includes more magic. Travel and day of the week is also a factor but I am always willing to discuss your budget and try to work with you.

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

    I may be old fashioned but I still like to talk on the phone, I think you get a better feel for whom you are dealing with and it helps to get to know you a little so I can tailor my show to your specific needs.

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

    I am a performing member at the world-famous magic castle. I started performing magic in bars while I was bartending. I was blessed to perform every night for all kind of people, as I honed my craft through trial and error over 20 years in bars and restaurants from the East coast to the West.
