Mark was truly an amazing magician. I’m still holding the quarter that I bent with my own hand! All my guests talked about how great he was. Really makes your party extra special!Jun 25, 2018Verified
Mark did a great job. He read the room very well and provided exactly what we were looking for in terms of a low pressure but highly entertaining performance. Our friends will be talking about his illusions for weeks.Oct 9, 2016Verified
He was a very entertaining and personable magician - well worth itJun 12, 2015Verified
Mark did a walk around magic show for our Purim party, he interacted well with the crowd & amazed even the most skeptical amongst them. He was a pleasure to deal with and was able to work with our budget. I would definitely work with him in the future.Mar 20, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It really depends on the job. If I'm just performing for an hour in a cocktail party in New York, so no travel is involved, it'd be $500 for the hour. If I had to travel I'd have to consider how far (I've had to cross the Atlantic for gigs) and how long I'd be needed to perform. Then, I'd need to take the means of my client into account. If I were travelling far enough, I'd probably negotiate a package by which my client would be incentivized to use me for longer than an hour or two, just so they could get more value from hiring me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm constantly reading both new material and the classics, I meet with two groups of magicians each week to trade ideas and secrets, I attend lectures and conventions, and I'm always rereading the classics.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My father is an amateur magician, and when I was in my early twenties I was in Europe, and found that performing magic got me free drinks, free meals, and useful contacts. Soon thereafter, I began doing it for money.
