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.

“Everyone wants a magical solution to their problems, and everyone refuses to believe in magic” ~Mad Hatter Steve was invited to perform for 36 guests at a gathering of kings and queens for my themed 57th birthday soirée. In the presence of some of the most discriminating skeptics of magic, Steve was as smooth as silk and left in his wake 36 “new” believers with their mouths dropped and their disbeliefs suspended. Steve commanded the room with his warmth, charm, and ability to connect us all to a magical world of wonder, surprise and delight. He was simply MAGICAL. He was more expensive than any of the other magicians I interviewed for the position, and as a firm believer in you get what you pay for, my curiosity was peaked. After one magical telephone conversation, I was convinced he was the man for the job. He unapologetically held his ground and was confident of his offerings. HE DID NOT DISAPPOINT, HE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. YOU WOULD BE FOOLISH NOT TO HIRE HIM. In fact, as a curator of social experiences, Steve will be the only magician I hire for future events. Yes, he is that good. Thank you Steve, I will see you at an event soon. peace…love…joy Joy Blessman Avocado House

Steve Wastell performed a walk-around then a show at my Christmas party. He was utterly amazing. He fired up the guests during the walk-around. His show was amazing! He included the guests, kept them entertained, there were loud laughs at his jokes, followed by stunned shock at the tricks. His illusions were unbelievable! I still can't believe some of the illusions he performed. I would recommend Steve to anyone who wants to take their event or party to the next level. He was responsive and worked with me to create the perfect party. I was so happy and my guests were amazed. They were still talking about his illusions at work the following week. I will definitely hire Steve again for any party where I really want to impress my guests. Truly an amazing magician! I would recommend him to anyone with my highest recommendation and my full confidence everyone will love his magic.

I've used Steve for two Christmas parties so far. He's the hit of the party. He does a walk around routine and finds small groups to perform a few tricks. Everyone gets involved. The number one question I get when I send out invites is if we are having the same magician again. I also get dozens of text messages the next morning with pictures of bent quarters, burnt cards, etc...Can't recommend him more...just don't book him the same day our Christmas party is!

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.
