We recently had a small bday party for my special needs daughter. Unfortunately we had a couple late cancellations due to covid or other reasons. We were just going to have video games, a movie and cake. We decided to add a magician to the mix and we have no regrets. The girls got pretty amped up while playing games after which we switched to the movie. Mike arrived on time, got set up and tailored his show to his audience. There was audience participation but it wasn't anything uncomfortable or forced. It was nice seeing the kids follow the tricks which included a lot of humor. After the show, the kids ate cake and switched back to video games :) Mike the Magician was a great change of pace for the party.

Michael put on a great mingle show for kids and grown-ups alike. He was prompt and professional in all our pre-event dealings. Recommended!

What a great addition to our daughters' birthday party! Michael is very professional and COVID conscious. Not only were the kids (2-7 years old) entertained, the adults were all pleasantly surprised to how entertained they were as well. Great job, no complaints, would hire again! Thanks for a great event!

Michael put on a very fun and entertaining magic show for our daughter's 12th birthday. Kids and adults all had a great time. Michael is very professional and a good showman. His performance is very engaging with lots of audience participation.

Michael was fantastic at our birthday party for our 7 yr old twins. The kids (and adults) loved his quick wit and interactive show style. He's really good with the kids and the balloon twisting was icing on the cake ;-)

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

    I price my shows based on audience size, length of the show, type of magic entertainment provided, the venue size, travel distance to the event and whether the show will be performed outdoors or inside.

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

    The greatest teacher is experience. I began practicing magic at age 10 and started performing professionally when I was 12. I took magic lessons from many prominent magicians but it was my constant interaction with audiences that shaped me. As well as being a member of the Society of American Magicians, I am also a theater director who studied acting and directing at the Studio Theatre Acting Conservatory in Wash, DC and at the Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab. I have worked as an actor or director at The Kennedy Center, Ford's Theatre, Studio Theatre, Theater J and The Chocolate Factory. I believe every play or musical is a big magic trick that unwraps to reveal all of its surprises.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Stage magic, close-up sleight of hand and walk-around entertainment are all part of my repertoire. I have performed corporate trade shows for Xerox, McDonalds, and MCI; library shows for counties in MD, VA, DE, & the city of Philadelphia; galas and private parties in Washington, DC for Union Station, French & Italian Embassies; 20 years of New Year's Eve performances for the cities of Warrenton, Annapolis, Leesburg; and hundreds of shows for children at schools, birthdays, carnivals, and the Fairfax County Park Authority.
