The magician was very prompt in arriving on time did a fast set up and actually mingled with the crowd doing small Illusions before the show a great value I would recommend this to anybody

The girls loved the show! Even my teenager (who initially wasn't going to attend) ended up having a good time! The magician had a great sense of humor and kept everybody laughing.

Everything was great it was a last minute surprise for my daughter's 7th birthday party it was everyone's first experience with a live magician. From start to finish outstanding. The show was the highlight of her birthday and she is still talking about the experience. Thank you i will not be using any other magician other than you in the future.

I hired Merman for a magic show face painting and balloon animals for a preschool end of year celebration. We had a lot of issues due to fog delays with the school. Merman was very understanding and worked with me to make sure we were happy. When he got to the school he encountered a lot of hostility with a parent and a staff member at the school. He still stayed and performed, made balloon animals, and even painted the non graduates. I feel horrible for the hostility he and his assistant faced, but he still strived to make sure the kids were happy. I was very pleased with his cooperation! My only wish was to have enjoyed a longer show but that was impossible due to the weather. I will always call Merman first if i ever need a magician again!!!!!!!!!
MerMan's COMEDY/ILLUSION East Coast #1 FAMILY show's reply
I wanted to thank you as well. Its one thing to fight the weather but entirely another when the folks that are supposed to be helping are causing issues. Again I thank you for having us and we will definitely work in weather delays for next year. Take care and let us know if you need anything.........MerMan

We hired MerMan's Comedy & Illusion for our son's 7th birthday party. The show was a hit with all of our party guests--young and old! Mr. MerMan managed to keep nine 7 year old boys engaged, along with five tween girls and a group of adults! The magic was great, the show was fantastic and the magician was professional. We will certainly recommend this company to our friends and our school!

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

    Because we offer so many different types of shows we do not have a standard pricing system. We offer walk-around, close up, stand-up and stage shows. We also perform large stage shows for up to 20,000 people that includes lights, PA system, curtains and someone floating in mid air or appearing from seemingly nowhere. We design each show for each client. We discuss your wants, needs, and budget. We then make suggestions and design a show that will give them the absolute BEST & MOST ENTERTAINMENT FOR YOUR MONEY

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

    We set-up a 10 min call. Listen to what you want, ask a couple questions, suggest different options and discuss budget. We then put together a couple of scenarios for you to choose from and fine tune them as needed. Every party and event is different so we design each show for each client

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

    theater, trade school, acting, magic workshops, customer relations and computer training and over 20 years of actual touring and performing experience. I was lucky enough to actually be trained by a professional entertainer and toured as a stage manager and assistant for years before the torch (or in my case the Magic wand LOL) was passed down to me. I have been trained in every aspect of magic performance from performing, lighting, sound, and staging to actual building and design of sets, and magical apparatus and Illusions. Most of my shows are completely original and offer one of a kind illusions
