About this pro

Mr. Bob the Magic Man is not an agent and definitely not a company-run franchise, but simply an independent children's birthday party entertainer. He has performed for children since 1989! In April of 2014, it'll mark 25 years of entertaining the little ones. Thanks to his love of kids and dedication to the art of magic, he has managed to become the most sought-after birthday party entertainer in the Chicagoland area! Parents book him several weeks and even months in advance. That's how busy he is. He has gone to parties where children actually greet him by name, thanks to previous visits! I've always loved magic and entertaining children. There are always children's neighbors, nieces, nephews and grand children that I could try my new magic on. If I get a thumbs-up from the kids, I'll incorporate the new magic tricks in my show,

    Q & A

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      Always attending workshops, conferences, conventions and classes to keep up with all aspects of my entertainment business.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      Back in 1989, I performed my very 1st magic show for my daughter's 5th birthday party. I was nervous, but pulled it off and the rest is history.
    • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
      When shopping around for other entertainers, be sure to browse their website, photos and most importantly, have a phone conversation with that person before deciding on entertainment. You should be confident that he or she is the best person to be your party entertainer. Nowadays, Moms and Dads want more for their money. There are already many expenses, such as food, drinks, cake, ice cream and decorations- you want to make sure that your entertainment is successful as well! MR. BOB TO THE RESCUE!
