Introduction
"My personal mission this summer is to stand on my mission statement even more. In celebration of spreading wonder and happiness with this wonderful craft, this summer of 2024, no matter where you are in the Chicago land area, all shows will be the same price rate! Every human being deserves to see and be part of world-class wonder and magic." - Chris Walde M.M.C. Corporate and ballroom events, weddings, cocktail hours, public speaking, meetings, office gatherings, or just a house party BBQ; they will all be the same rate. please contact me about this winners price of services. This magic happens face to face. This is more intimate. It's in your hands. This is the best way to meet and entertain all your guests on a personal level. I do not perform with large stage productions with flashy dancers and fireworks. As a public speaker and instructor, I understand the importance of keeping the attention of a captive audience. I also offer my public speaking skills with a magical blend set to amaze and get the point across in a magical manner. Own a bar or restaurant? Holding an event at a bar or restaurant? This magic happens face to face. Add wonderful memories and moments of wonder to your next event. My goal in life is to make people smile and forget about the world for a while. Instill the whimsy back into people's lives. Magic is not just for children. I know that in some cases, adults need it more than children. There's a little 'something' in magic for everyone.

What fun, the look on people's faces was priceless, from writing a number on on a white board and hiding it and getting random numbers from the audience and it all is calculating back to the number on the board. WOW To ripping and burning a card and from one person's hand and the other feeling it, total mind blown. What a great experience.

Awesome show and an awesome guy. Would highly recommend. We had him over to do a show for kids and adults at the same time and he nailed it. My buddy and I do magic and he still had us fooled.
