About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I don't take myself too serious. I believe in presenting in a humorous manner instead of a mysterious manner. Over the past 17 years I have developed programs which are based on what pleases my audiences. Bottom line is our goal is to entertain.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

When people come up to me after a performance and say "Thank you, you made my day". That is what I like most. It is a joy to help people forget about what is in the news or possible worries they have.

    Charlie and Barb were great. I hired them for my husband's 52 birthday. They arrived exactly when they said they would and were ready early, but patiently waited until the guests were ready to join the show. Charlie used many audience volunteers which was fun for all. Barb's reactions to Charlie were hilarious, as the wife who had heard his jokes a million times. Charlie played along well to a little heckling from a crowd of 18 who had been drinking a bit. I gave a "good" review instead of an "excellent" review because I think he is a little better suited for a young crowd. His slight-of-hand isn't always so "slight" and we all learned how a lot a tricks were done that we had seen before, but didn't know the secret. That being said, I would hire him all over again and love every minute of this adorable duo.

    An entertaining and professional individual! Need I say more! Mr. illusion provided an awesome Magician experience at our Seafood and Jazz Festival May 2015 to 1000+ attendees at Beale Air Force Base. He provided an entertaining stage show along with walking around and captivating the crowds, while they wandered the festival. I highly recommend!

    I had planned a surprise birthday party for my boyfriends 37th birthday. It was the first of his birthdays that we have shared together and I wanted to make it special. Knowing he is a fan of magic and after much research and interviews, I chose Mister Illusion. Mister Illusion and his wonderful assistant (wife) Barb were phenomenal. They exceeded our expectations and made for an unforgettable evening of entertainment. My boyfriend said it was the best birthday he has ever had!! I would recommend Charlie Fass to anyone, for any event - he is amazing!!

    Charlie was on time, very polite, easy to work with, a real pleasure to have as our magician for my husband's 70th birthday party. Everyone was very impressed with his presentation. Our friends complemented me on finding a wonderful magician. They really liked his delivery. He was great with our small adult audience. Many of my guests asked where I found him? His one on one magic tricks at the table were captivating. He was excellent with everyone. We all liked the way he had our friends come up to stage and participate. Many of us are still in awe of the "egg" trick, how did he do that? The uneven and even rope trick will be forever a topic of conversation. Charlie is charming and a real plus to a celebration. I will be sure to recommend him to my friends. I special thank you Charlie, we will certainly hire you again, perhaps during the Christmas season for our Annual Ugly Holiday Sweater Party. Thank you again for making my husband's party a real celebration. Warmest regards, Kathryn Dayton

    Mr. Illusion was great at my sons party. We had 14 boys and they were enthralled with him. We asked when he got there to set up if he could do 45 instead of 30 minutes and he said no problem and the show was great!
    Charlie F. Jan 25, 2015

    My wife Barb and I thank you, Heidi, for your comments. We thoroughly enjoyed performing our birthday show for your family this weekend. We perform magic full time for our livelihood, but our greatest reward is satisfied customers. May every DAY be magic......Charlie & Barb

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My shows are "tailor made". What I mean by that is, I ask the customer what they are looking for or what their goals are and then I put a show together which is designed around their needs and desires. As a result, I do not have a "standard show", but a "tailor made" show. Once I know what the customer wants, I then give them at least three options to choose from. If they have budget requirements, I always do my very best to work within the budget they give me. My goal is to not only provide the very best for the customer, but to actually exceed their expectations. We feel very blessed that the feedback we have received tells us we are on course.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I did a stage performance at a church function and at the end, a lady came up on stage and said, "My face hurts." I said, "Why what happened, what's wrong?" She said, "My face hurts because I was laughing so hard!"
