Introduction: I'll make your child or other guest(s) the STAR(s) of the SHOW. I'll make your parties/events more memorable by providing engaging, interactive, amusing, often amazing MAGIC. I GUARANTEE my shows, not all magicians do that. I've won numerous awards for my magic and that re-enforces what some folks have said about me. I'm priced reasonably and strive to NOT RIP PEOPLE OFF. I truly enjoy the reactions I get/receive when I've done an effect/performance. The smiles, laughter, and positive commentary are all priceless to me. I feed off the responses so when it's going well (and it typcially does) the show gets better as time progresses. I may/might start out a bit slow but as I pick up steam folks smile, laugh, have fun, and are often amazed!

Just wanted to share my experience with Marty G the magician. Marty responded on Thumbtack and texted me three or four times weeks prior to showing up and provided a super fun time for me and my family for my son‘s 30th birthday party. I would highly recommend hiring Marty if you want to have some laughs and a fun magic show He is definitely the guy to hire.

Details: Birthday party • Close up magic show • 41 - 70 guests • 18 or older • Private residence (outdoors)

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I generally need further information please call me and we'll discuss what you need, nothing complicated.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I find out what your needs are, but I have mine also aka how many guests, time you want, type of magic you wish, age range, and location (aka travel time).

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Magic is a constantly changing field of entertainment and it's difficult to keep up with ALL the developments. I make an effort to keep up by attending club lectures and watching online videos & TV programs pertaining to my craft. I occasionally take an acting or drama class to improve my performance chops. In terms of past training, I started in the Community Adult School that had offered several sessions by a professional MENTALIST who was teaching MAGIC. I continued to a couple of JR COLLEGE extensions who had a MAGICIAN teaching several sessions & concluded training at the WORLD FAMOUS MAGIC CASTLE.
