Bertil performed his magic show at my son's 5th birthday party and it was a great success. The kids just loved it and are still talking about the tricks. Bertil knows how to engage a young audience so they become part of the spectacle. Bertil is professional and a lot of fun. I would hire him again anytime - simply the best...Oct 10, 2012
We hired Bert for a church group party which was held in a private home for about 50 people. He arrived on time, mixed well with the guests before the performance, put on a good show for about 45 minutes, and was well received.Dec 12, 2012
He was great with the kids! The show was so much fun. The kids were amazed and engaged throughout the entire show. We are so glad we hired Black Bert for our daughter's 6th birthday party.Dec 23, 2012
Bert was professional and a lot of fun. The kids loved that he included them in his show. He communicated well with me and was punctual. I highly recommend him.Jun 13, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $260 for the first hour and 50% less for the following hours at the same location and the same date. Most of the time one hour is enough as most magic shows are 45 to 50 minutes long. For performances outside of the greater Austin area I charge for travel ($0.50/mile). The Magic Theme Party is an additional $40 plus $5 per participating child for the take home magic kits and it lastes over two hours including a break between the class and the show and basically takes care of the entire party for you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Send me your preferred date and time and I will let you know if I am available. When and if you have decided to book me and we have settled on a date and time I try to assess the needs of the party organizer. How big of a stage do I have (often just a living room), how big is the audience (I can bring a loudspeaker, free of charge, if needed), what is happening before and after my show, (I can do anything from 30 to 60 minutes of magic depending on the age group and the needs of the organizer), etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been teaching and performing magic for more than 30 years and I am a member of several magic associations like The International Brotherhood of Magicians and The Society of American Magicians. In addition to that I am also a member of the renown American Academy of Magic in Hollywood and one of the owners of “Fantastic Magic Camp” in Austin, Texas.
