    Michael's brand of magic is very impactful. He prides himself on creating wonderful memories and moments for clients where seeing is truly believing. Since mastering the art of close-up magic, he has been asked to entertain audiences at corporate dinners in San Francisco, California and trade shows in Boston, and to even do headlining rock-and-roll shows in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. After seeing several performances in nightclubs all over the triangle, Zspotlight stated, "Mike is regarded by many as the top close-up magician in the Triangle area." His style of magic is best suited for a situation where he is mingling about (also known as strolling magic) and using only the most everyday props. With simply a deck of cards, a few rubberbands and some spare change, Michael has been known to entertain for hours at a time, creating unique and individual experiences for all in attendance. Michael has worked for the following: First Health (Raleigh), Elon University, Amgen Pharmaceuticals, Eli Lilly, Lenovo, Quintiles, Suntrust Banks, IBM, AT&T, Onyx, ESS Lounge, BFG, The Pourhouse, The Lincoln Theater and many more. What people are saying about Michael: "Mike is regarded by many as the top close-up magician in the Triangle area." - ZSpotlight "I'm not easily impressed by much...but wow!" - Bob Dumas, G105's Bob & The Showgram "There's something about growing up your whole life with people telling you that almost everything is impossible; getting to watch Michael do magic makes me glad I never believed them!" - Brian Venable, Guitarist, Lucero "You are an inspiring individual. The biggest lure of tour is the prospect of meeting remarkable folks all across the US, and meeting you has strengthened that argument greatly." - David Slade, American Princes "He's a brilliant, brilliant magician, and it's good to know there's a little bit of magic left in the world." - William Elliot Whitmore, Singer/Songwriter Michael is available for: Anniversaries, Apres ski parties, awards nights, bachelor parties, bachelorette parties, banquets, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, birthday parties, children's birthday parties, casinos, celebrations, christenings, christmas parties, clubs, coffee shops, community events, conventions, corporate functions, country clubs, cruise ships, dinner dances, festivals, fraternity functions, fund raisers, funerals, graduation parties, grand openings, hotels, jingles, movie soundtracks, picnic, private parties, proms, resorts, restaurants, reunions, showers, sorority functions, studio sessions, temples, TV soundtracks and weddings.

    Sam The Magic Man

    (17 reviews)

    Sam the Magic Man was wonderful to work with! He was very communicative before the event, arrived promptly, and thoroughly entertained both the kids and the adults. He had plenty of audience participation, which the kids loved! Plus, they each got their own "magic wand" at the end of the show. I would highly recommend him for your event and would eagerly book him again the next time I need a magician.
