About Barry the Children's Magician

I do children's parties and shows. I do magic and balloon animals, with lots of audience participation.

My magic shows are perfect for ages 4 to 10.

All tricks and routines are age-appropriate. There is no risque or inappropriate material.

I have reasonable rates.

Thank you!

    Barry did a our grandbaby's birthday March 14, 2015 and did a fantastic job. He is a good magician and a very humble guy. He is also very reasonable in price. We enjoyed the show and would do it again. thanks barry...luis and migdalia moure

    Barry did a great job at my son's birthday party. It's not easy keeping the attention of 7 year olds, but they were captivated for the whole hour. We would definitely hire him again in the future.

    I left Barry a message and sent him an email regarding his services.I tried to call him a second time. He answered and promptly told me I can't talk right now and hung up. Guess Barry doesn't want to be hired!

    I received that call immediately after losing my cell phone. In all the confusion, I mistakenly thought that it was a sales call. I may have been somewhat abrupt, but was not impolite, saying "thank you," prior to hanging up. I even emailed the person with an explanation and an apology, but received no response.

    I have known Barry Lazarus for almost thirty years. He has been a teacher for the New York City Board of Education for most of those years. He is a highly talented and creative person whose magic shows are both ehgaging as well as FUN. He has a great personality and interacts with youngsters in a way that makes them feel they are not be condescended to and they sincerely like him and his magic shows. He is wonderful person with whom to work -- honest, professional and kind.
