Introduction: Sonu is the top reviewed magician in the DFW area with more than 100 5-star reviews. What makes him different is his ability to connect with people. He has volunteers for nearly every effect he does. His performance is fast paced and jam packed with magic. His stage show typically has 15 -18 effects in one show. The two most common responses to his magic are "How'd you do that?" and "Can you do that again?" On YouTube, you can watch most any magic effect ever performed, but to experience it right in front of your eyes and in your hands is what truly makes it a memorable experience. With Sonu, you will get a magical experience that will be talked about for months and years to come. The thing I like most about being a magician is seeing people's reactions to my magic. That is what initially hooked me on magic when I was 10 and is still what I find intriguing. Seeing a person's face light up when I amaze them is one of the best feelings in the world. Knowing that you can transport an adult back to that feeling of childlike wonder is what it's all about.

Me Sonu IS absolutely amazing. So many terrific tricks that I have no clue how he does them. He's a great stand up magician that you just have to see. He kindly performed for our St. Jude Children's Research Hospital fundraiser and all were astounded. And he's a great person!

Sonu did an outstanding job performing up-close, strolling magic at our fundraising event. He closed with 15 minutes of stage magic after we seated everyone for dinner. Sonu's interactions with our guests and donors were perfectly on-point so everyone was truly entertained and amazed. I can recommend Sonu without any reservations - he is the best!

Sonu was very entertaining and professional. The children and event volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House loved Sonu's tricks. My favorite trick was when he made the rabbits multiple. I recommend Sonu for your next special event.

Sonu was hired for a corporate event with more than 450 attendees. His magic and comedy left the crowd literally begging for more. Everything he did was age-appropriate and entertaining. His skill at sleight of hand is extremely well rehearsed and amazingly uplifting. Sonu would be a great addition to your next event, no matter the size, venue or crowd. Thanks Sonu for making my event the best ever!

Sonu was absolutely wonderful at my event with beautiful ladies! I was able to walk away and entertain my friends and not worry about him engaging and entertaining the others . That's important when throwing a party. I've had all my guest ask for his number to schedule him at their next party. He is a "Keeper"... Thank you for making my event exciting and full of laughs❤️

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

    Typically, my marketing manager talks with the client by phone or email and gets basic information to make sure I'm appropriate for the event. Then she schedules a free demo, so the client can make sure that they like my style of magic. Most have never hired a magician, so this gives them a measure of comfort. Then we complete a service agreement and get a deposit to hold the date. Final payment is due prior to the performance date.

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

    My Magic career actually began when I was 10 years old at vacation bible school. During the week, one of the entertainers was a magician. She allowed me to be her assistant, and when I got on stage and saw the audience's reaction to the effects she was doing - from that moment on, I was hooked. At a young age, I couldn't read enough about Magic. I checked out every book possible.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    My specialties are Close-up Magic, wandering around among groups of people performing magic at their tables, and interactive stage magic. These types of effects are great for cocktail parties and corporate events.
