About this pro

Energy is the key component to the magic you will experience when I perform. My close-up and stage magic are geared for adults in both private and corporate settings. Before each show, I contact the host to learn more about the attendees or the company, if it is a corporate show, to make the magic more personal. I involve the audience in the entertainment and try to spotlight a few members of the crowd so they have a moment to shine among their friends. Typically, I customize poker chips to be given away throughout the event. Magic is a wonderful medium for meeting all kinds of people. It is fun to watch the reactions of someone when you do some magic in their own hands or right before their eyes. I thrive on the interaction with the audience and the knowledge that they are having a good time. For that brief moment in time, reality is behind them, out of sight, and the magic is all that is happening. To be able to stimulate that sense of wonder for someone else is what keeps me performing!

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I do not have a standard set price for my services. My fee is dependent upon the type of magic (close-up, stage, or parlor) requested, the length of service, and the distance I travel to the client's location.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I start by asking a new client what they would like for their event. Do they want audience participation, a stage show, or the more intimate feel of close up magic? Once certain parameters have been established, I like to discuss how the show can be customized for their event; I can provide poker chips with the name of the event on them as souvenirs of the magical experience.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and the Society of American Magicians, where we have monthly meetings to share ideas and work on effects with other magicians. In 2013 & 2014, I won first place in the Bay Area close up competition. In 2017, I won first place at the Oakland Magic Circle Northern California Stage Magic Competition.
    Coverage Area for Alan Leeds: Bay Area Magical Entertainment is about 85+ miles of Pleasanton, CA.
