Introduction: THE WAY AMAZING KEN ENTERTAINS KIDS IS MAGIC! What does Amazing Ken bring to your event? Laughter and mystery! I'll take care of keeping your guests entertained so you can relax. A long time member of London’s Magic Circle, I've presented my magic at Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre, Great Adventure, Good Morning America and thousands of shows across the tri-state area. My specialty is presenting one of a kind comedy magic shows that engages kids (& grown-ups). Shows are tailored for age range and group size. For BD parties, I aim to make it a very special day with extra attention given to the birthday child. There’s magic with blooming bouquets, appearing goldfish, multiplying cookies, disappearing handkerchiefs, a cool magical guessing game and the stunning surprise appearance of a LIVE BUNNY. As an add on I also offer balloon animals. Family gatherings are now more precious. In these times we need a good laugh and some magic. I guarantee both! I'd be happy to talk about your event, contact me for more info.

Ken is such a great magician! He performed at my daughter's 5 year birthday party. We had about 18 kids age from 2 to 7. He had such great audience control and kept everybody engaged throughout the one hour performance. There were a lot audience participants opportunities. I was worried before the show that 5 year old can not stay focused for a whole hour. Ken proofed me wrong! Ken's performance is very humor, both kids and adults were laughing throughout the show. The bunny out of the magician's hat is definitely the hight of the show! Highly recommend him for kids' parties!!!

Details: Birthday party • Close up magic show • 11 - 20 guests • 4 - 6 years old • Private residence (outdoors)

While searching for an entertainer for my sons 8th birthday party...at first, I wasn’t sure if hiring a magician was age appropriate since he past the clown and twisty balloon phase. But I decided to give amazing Ken a try after reading positive reviews and boy I was so glad I did. Amazing Ken exceeded my expectations. Not only did the children find him amusing but adults couldn’t stop talking about how funny and amazing he was. The feedback from the crowd was incredibly positive. Everyone especially my son loved the trick with the fake smoke in his pocket. Amazing Ken was well equipped and very professional. He did a fantastic job and I hope to use him in my future events! 👏🏽

Details: Birthday party • Close up magic show • Balloon twisting • 11 - 20 guests • 7 - 10 years old • 11 - 14 years old • 4 - 6 years old • Private residence (outdoors)

Amazing Ken lives up to his name. All the kids loved him as did the adults. He came a little earlier and set up everything on time. The show was great! He kept the kids laughing and entertained the entire time. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an awesome magician for their kids birthday party.

I planed to invite a magician to my son’s birthday celebration in school and Amazing Ken was the first one to reply my request. He replied every msg I sent and kept a good communication before the show day. On the day of the birthday celebration, Ken did a great job with the big challenge of keeping the mask on under school’s regulations . Kids laughed from beginning to the end. I’m so happy that the kids finally watched a wonderful show and enjoyed a good time after such a long pandemic. The final moment of patting Simon the rabbit was just so so sweet…Ken’s show is extremely suitable for kids and I highly recommended him.

Simon and I thank you Melody! Now he's increased his carrot demands :) It was a pleasure entertaining for N and his class. Stay well!

Amazing Ken is just what his name says, amazing! From the start of booking our 6 year old’s birthday party, Amazing Ken was a delight and very pleasant to communicate with. His show is perfect for kids 5-7 years old but he also had the adults rolling in laughter. Ken’s love for magic and pleasing his audience is truly a wonderful site to see. You could tell his goals are to get as many kids involved as possible and he remembered all their names throughout the show! The kids loved him! Being able to engage a bunch of 5-7 year old kids for more than 45 minutes straight is truly a talent in its own but don’t be mistaken, Ken is a great magician! Book this guy today, you won’t regret it! We had parents coming to us after the show and telling us they wanted to book him for their child’s birthday party. Thanks again to Amazing Ken for a birthday to remember!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Amazing Ken kid's show is great for ages 4 & up. Each show is tailored for age range and group size. My walk around magic is recommended for ages 9+ yrs. There's a standard fee for the 4 'outer' boroughs: BK, Qns, SI, Bx. Manhattan rates are a bit higher as are shows in NJ, etc to cover gas, tolls and travel time. The show runs an hour, but I also offer 1.5 - 2 hr packages with balloon animals and / or BUBBLES! With special promotions, I can also provide free magic tricks for all the kids to take home at the end of the show.

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

    The client and I would discuss the type of event and if it's at the client's home or catering hall, the number and ages of the audience and your location. I'll also ask if there's a particular theme or special likes to possibly incorporate into the show. Many times at birthday parties there are budding magicians in the audience who want to upgrade their skills! I also offer a mini-workshop where I can teach the kids one or two easy magic tricks to amaze friends and family. I'll work with you to go through a quick checklist a day or two before the event to make sure all is in readiness. My act is self-contained and I basically only require a square table from the client. My goal is to make it a memorable day, one the kids & parents will talk about long after. I know how important birthdays are - that's why I've made them my specialty!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Intrigued by magic as a kid, I went on to become a member of the Society of American Magicians and started entertaining professionally in the United Kingdom where I joined the renowned Magic Circle in London. I've taught and lectured about magic for the psychology department at Brooklyn College and performed for clients such as the Kennedy family (their Xmas party), The Friars Club, The 21 Club, Club Med resorts, Stand Up New York comedy club and appeared in Italy, Colombia, England, and Mexico.
