Introduction: As I am fully vaccinated, I am now doing both Zoom AND in person shows! Are you in charge of entertainment for a party or an event and do not know where to turn? Look no further. You can treat your guests to the customized magic of Alan Leeds, multiple award winning magician, including: - Magician Member of the Academy of Magical Arts (Magic Castle) - N. California Stage Magic: 1st place winner (OMC) - 2x Bay Area Close-up Master Magician of the year - Thumbtack: Top Pro 2018, 2019 and 2020 Award Whether you want a magician for stage or close-up magic, Alan has the enthusiasm and repertoire that will have people shaking their heads in disbelief. 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!

If I could put 6 stars or more, I would do it… Alan was an incredible and highly skilled entertainer during our first post-Covid party (50+ ppl). We couldn’t dream of a better show! Alan made so many tricks (some were even prepared in advance) and our guests were all truly impressed. What a memorable experience. I’ll recommend Alan over anyone else. There’s no better alternative! Thanks again Alan, looking forward to seeing you again soon.

He had all my guests buzzing! He was subtle and mingled with the guests but caused small groups to form and be in amazement. The perfect party performer if you want to kick your cocktails up a notch!

Alan was absolutely fantastic! He performed at my boyfriend’s 30th birthday party. He got to know us ahead of time to personalize tricks for our friends and family. All of our guests loved him! Highly recommend. Thank you so much, Alan.

FAQs

  • 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.
