BRIAN MILLER: MAGICIAN & MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER *** Awarded Thumbtack.com "Best of 2015" and named #1 Entertainer in Hartford *** Need strolling magic to entertain your guests without stopping the event? What about a stand-up show for a private engagement? Or a full blown stage show for a fundraiser, theater, or banquet? I've got you covered! My name is Brian Miller. I have entertained thousands of audiences for over 10 years in 25 states and 5 countries. My show is full of audience interaction, jaw dropping magic, and laugh-out-loud comedy. It is also 100% clean - nobody is made fun of, and nobody gets offended. My clients include the U.S. Navy and many of New England's most prestigious institutions like Yale University, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Mayor's Charity Ball, and of course hundreds of private events. Nancy Goldstein, Connecticut's premier award-winning event planner, says: "I have repeatedly hired Brian to perform at many events. He hits the mark on all levels and receives raves from clients and attendees. Brian is professional, reliable, and a master of his craft." CORPORATE KEYNOTE & YOUTH MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING Don't put your audience to sleep! I deliver dynamic, engaging, and exciting corporate keynote speeches and breakout sessions. Your attendees will gasp, laugh, and learn all about how to make better connections with each other, their clients, and their friends & family. Remember: happy employees are effective employees! My TEDx talk "How to Magically Connect with Anyone" has been seen and shared 2.5 million times, making it one of the most popular TEDx talks in history. As a youth motivational speaker I help teens and young adults imagine a world in which we all feel understood, and reclaim the art of conversation in the real world.

The best part about my job is watching people experience true wonder. Magic reminds people that there is so much more out there than we could ever imagine. As a magician, it is literally my job description to make impossible things happen, and share incredible moments.

    Best Holiday Party in Years!
    Fantastic! Hearing rave reviews from my co-workers following Brian's show at our Holiday Party. Everyone was left amazed and scratching their heads as to how he could pull off the illusions right in front of our eyes. So happy we selected Brian!

    We hired Brian to entertain 250 eighth graders for our school's fun day. He arrived early and very prepared. Because he has so much experience with middle school students, he dove right in and went to work. He instantaneously established a fan club which followed him around for most of his two hours with us. The students reported that his skills were superb and left them wondering "How did he do that?" His tricks were varied and interesting and the students definitely wanted him to stay longer! I would strongly recommend Brian-you will not be disappointed.

    Brian provided both strolling magic and a magic show for my son's Bat Mitzvah. My guests were amazed! Brian was engaging and creative and had my guests (kids and adults) enthralled! Brian was flexible throughout the event - he seems easy transitioned between kids & adults and was enjoyed by everyone. He was wonderful to work with - from the intial consult to the final payment. My younger son has already asked for me to hire Brian for his Bar Mitzvah!

    Brian was absolutely incredible! From the strolling magic to the interactive show at the end, it was truly amazing! He engages everyone to partake in the fun! I would highly recommend him and look forward to future events for him to amaze us once again! Thank you Brian!

    The hit of the bat mitzvah party!!! Brian had the kids and adults in awe throughout the whole party!! He is not only truly talented but professional. Brian was early to our venue (which I appreciate) and ready to perform. What a great addition to our celebration! Book him before someone else does!!!

    Brian is exceptional in every regard!! Brian performed for my daughter's 13th birthday party and the age range was 13-81 with the grandparents included and he connected wonderfully with the entire audience!! Truly gifted, talented, charming, amazing sense of humor, intelligent and wonderfully down to earth, Brian is the whole package and an absolute delight to work with-worth every penny and then some!!

    It was the first time I had hired a Magician. I thought he was excellent. Everyone (every age) was very impressed with him. I will be recommending him to anyone that is looking for a Magician

    It was a great night of fun with Brian as the entertainment portion of our Blue & Gold Boy Scout Dinner. I feel like I got a comedian / Magician for the price of one. Everyone that attended commented about how he played to the crowed and everyone from our 5 yr olds to our 55yrs olds enjoyed the show. If your looking for someone to cover all sorts of age groups this is your guy... worth every penny Couldn't recommend him enough

    Brian recently performed at my office holiday party and he was amazing. Personable, funny and the magic was. . .magical. He engaged the audience well and we were all really impressed.
  • Karen A. Jan 29, 2015
    Brian performed at my company's not-really-holidays party. He did some slight-of-hand tricks during the cocktail hour and then a performance for our group of around 30 people. I was totally enraptured, the tricks were great, really convincing, not too over the top. Really appreciate the funny magician as opposed to the serious one.
  • John H. Jan 29, 2015
    I was in the audience for a company holiday dinner at which Brian performed, both informally in pre-show tricks and in a formal presentation of more elaborate tricks. Brian was witty, skillful, and best of all, very engaged with his audience in a genuine way while he performed magic sleight of hand that was truly compelling. His act fully entertained us all. Highly recommended for both informal and more formal events.

    I held my Sweet 16 hoping find a charismatic magician who could walk around, preforming entertaining tricks for my friends there. I ended up receiving much more. Brian was so cool to all of my guests, and he was definitely the talk of the party days afterwards. Everyone really loved him, and his tricks astounded people. He was really the life of the party, and I'm so glad I hired him to preform. Not to mention he has a great price!

    Brian was great. Punctual, even in adverse weather conditions, professional throughout the process, and the communication from the start of the process all the way through the night of the event was exceptional. On top of it all, the show itself was magnificent, incorporating members of the audience, and engulfing us in both awe and laughter. He was even able to deal with the members of the audience who were less-than well behaved, and possibly over-served. I would highly recommend Brian to anybody looking!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We have an email exchange or, ideally, a phone conversation to discuss their particular event needs. I explain precisely how I work and what I do to help their event be a smashing success. Once we've agreed on the details, they sign a simple one page contract and return with 50% deposit.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with everyone from intimate private house parties to huge corporate galas. My typical clients are local/regional corporations and companies. During the holiday season (December/January) I also have many private house party clients.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be sure to have a very clear idea of your event: how it is laid out and organized, and the schedule for the evening. Many events end up cluttered due to lack of clear planning, and I will be glad to assist with that.
