Introduction: I have been entertaining people of all ages for over 20 years, specializing in close-up/walk-around magic and small parlor style and home performances. I have performed for a wide variety of audiences and venues ranging from home parties, to corporate banquets to trade shows. I can perform in virtually any type of environment, whether it be on the street, dinner engagements, restaurants and clubs, cocktail hours at catered events, grand opening celebrations, hospitality suites, weddings, festivals or fairs and private house parties. I enjoy the interaction with people and making them smile in amazement at the magic routines that happen in front of their faces and many times in their own hands.

I requested Barry to put up a virtual magic show for my sons Birthday party. He accepted the request and went above and beyond to make sure to make all the arrangements necessary for to pull the show virtually over zoom, he had to purchase some new equipment to make sure good quality of the video. He constantly communicated on the progress he is making on the arrangements and also had a trial dry run a day before the event . Finally the show was a grand success , kids enjoyed a lot and the show made a lot of difference to the party, show was appreciated both by kiddos and parents and was vey entertaining. Barry is a great professional to work with , highly recommended. 5 stars!

The experience was great for my granddaughters first birthday party. The magic tricks even enticed the adults. Barry was on time and kept the kids attention.

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

    Pricing is based on type of show requested, length of show and travel distance. Shows typically run 45 minutes to 1 hour and cost around $150 for performances within the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and surrounding counties. Fees are adjusted accordingly for shorter or longer performances or for performances outside my local travel area.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have worked for a magic shop in the late 1990s in the West End area of Dallas. Have attended workshops and lectures featuring world class magicians Michael Ammar and Michael Finney. I am a member of the Dallas Magic Club (Society of American Magicians Assembly 13 and International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring 174).

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    Recently performed for The Birthday Party Project, whose mission is to bring JOY to homeless children through the MAGIC of birthdays. The booking covered 14 performances through the month of May 2018 covering the DFW area and McKinney.
