Introduction: Please read the reviews here and else where online. They tell the story best. Illusions by Vick is Not a Stereotypical Magician. Illusions by Vick shares amazing & fun magical entertainment. Years have been devoted to studying and performing magic (and theater) to craft a performance unlike any other, filled with smiles, laughs, heart touching "aaaawwwww" moments, wonder, the unexpected, beauty and a great, fun time. With the audience we create magic. The show is crafted with something for everyone of all ages to enjoy and relate to. The performance includes audience participation and interaction. (No one is ever put on the spot and everyone is treated with the utmost respect) Please ask about personalized magical effects to honor your special guest(s). If there is a guest of honor I can include a reference (or two) to their interests in the performance (a highlight of the show). Imagine a likeness of your child's, spouse's, friend's, family member's, CEO's, VIP's or co-worker's favorite character, athlete, musician, sport or activity magically appearing in the show when they don't expect it. For corporations and company events the performance can include references to products, services or events (example, for various wealth management companies five $1 bills magically changed into five $100 bills, a few companies presented the $100 bills as bonuses or prizes at their events). If you want entertainment with no personalization that's great too. The show includes experiences everyone can relate to wrapped around the magic. Making a connection with the audience. The magic happens in the audience. People smiling, laughing, experiencing amazement and wonder, enjoying themselves and their surroundings, that's where the magic is. That's what we create. Fun & amazement in the Now and sharing a special experience to create Great Memories. Seeing audiences smiling, laughing, having fun, experiencing amazement and enjoying themselves. For me that's incredibly special and about the best thing I can do. Creating special moments, being a small part of celebrations, helping audiences experience wonder, engaging imaginations, touching hearts and tickling funny bones. Working closely with clients, to understand your vision for the event and then do everything to make that a reality (including performing magical effects crafted specially to reference your event or guest of honor). My primary concern is you have the best entertainment experience. After 20 years and over 4,000 performances I've seen a few things and different approaches. Some clients are professional event planners with great experience, others may be having a once in a lifetime celebration. Am here to help, please feel free to call or email.

Matt S.

Magician

We had an excellent experience with Vick, who we hired for my daughter's 8th birthday. He was very professional, arrived on time, was scrupulously polite and good to work with. He is a brilliant illusionist and the kids absolutely loved him. He doesn't talk down to them and they responded really well. They wanted more and more. Highly recommended.

Vick kept seventeen 8 year old boys engrossed in his positive messaged magic show for 45 minutes. My boys skepticism of another magician, were quickly addressed when Vick introduced himself with a flaming business card. Both groups of children and parents were delighted.

Thank you Nicole. Sincerely enjoyed performing for and meeting everyone virtually. Wonderful people and audience, thank you for making everything happen. Am glad I stopped the show toward the end to make time to speak with everyone and allow anyone to ask questions.

He was a hit at my New Years Party! He connected with each and every person in the audience. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
Magician Illusions by Vick's reply
Thank you Samantha. Great party with wonderful people. Pleasure to meet and perform for everyone. Received one of my favorite complements at your NYE party, one of the gentlemen who arrived late, Akeem said he and his friend came late on purpose because they heard a magician was performing and they weren't interested. Akeem and his friend told me after the show they were very glad to have seen the last half of the show. Then again I did alter the way he perceives during the performance.

I am very pleased that Vick was our magician of the night - he has been very thorough in preparing the event in order to blend his art to our brand event.

FAQs

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

    Email, call or text (whatever the client is most comfortable with), asking a few questions, finding out about the guests and event to craft and present a wonderful entertainment experience.

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

    20+ years intense study, practice and rehearsal. Magic/Theater. My interest in and performing magic started as an adult, not as a child. Always learning, the works of Sam H. Sharpe have been a huge influence as well as the Fitzkie Trilogy, "Our Magic", the works of Tommy Wonder, Robert-Houdin, Henning Nelms "Magic and Showmanship" and Jim Steinmeyer. Incredibly fortunate to be given guidance by an enigmatic figure (an actual card man) whose name I obviously cannot mention and to whom I am extremely grateful. Also the very talented and respected Denny Haney assisted with direction in the art (and putting up with my questions). As part of my continuing education I regularly attend lectures, notable favorites being Joanie Spina, Michael Weber, Richard Osterlind, Banachek, John Carney (twice), Darwin Ortiz, Michael Ammar, Axel Hecklau, Howie Schwartzman, Christopher Bolter, and Christian Painter. Was extremely fortunate to have worked briefly with Joanie Spina as a director. She made a huge, positive impact on my work, enhanced how I create and view the art of magic. She was an amazing talent, director, teacher and humanitarian. Most of the influences on my work and performing come from outside of the world of magic and include film, literature and music. Create something that engages minds, enables viewers to think and feel and you have created art.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?
