Introduction: In this challenging “stay at home environment” the need for customized home based entertainment has never been greater. As I am only doing virtual interactive shows on My Zoom or Go to Meeting accounts, I currently have a discounted base rate of $150 for a 30 minute customized virtual show. 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 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!

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!

Alan was truly amazing! We hired him for a company holiday party and he was the biggest hit of the evening! He took the time to research the company and provided me with many ideas to create a truly wonderful event. He definitely understood exactly what we wanted from him and everyone was impressed. I highly recommend Alan and would use him again for other parties.

Alan was fantastic with his routine of course. Magic acts are fun at all ages and our group were mainly over 50 and they loved it! I recommend Alan for your next party or event. You will be happy to have him!

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.

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.
