Alan was great! We hired him to do magic entertainment at our wedding. He asked about the guests ahead of time to customize the magic to the audience and our guests loved it! The magic tricks were super fun and Alan has a great sense of humour and is very personable!Sep 19, 2019Verified
Alan, Went above and beyond entertaining each and every dinner table with his customized magic specific to particular guests (from research bios given by the host). And ending the night with a stage show for the entire party. Highly recommended for any occasion.Feb 12, 2019Verified
Alan is great! Easy to work with and very reasonably priced. We hired him for our 25th wedding anniversary party. It was a small group - 22 people - and he entertained everyone while people were arriving and mingling and then after lunch put on a great show for everyone. He was funny and talented.Mar 13, 2018Verified
- 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.
