Okay, well I have to say that Chris Michael is #1 in my book! Let’s start with the fact that he’s a great magician - he will astound you and everyone around you for the entire length of the show, guaranteed. But there is more. He is a great communicator, and is very funny and entertaining, aside from the magic! So you will be amazed and charmed at the same time. From my interaction with him and his management team, I can also tell you that he is a stand-up guy, and that he communicate directly with you and will work his hardest to give you more than what you expected from him. If you are thinking of hiring entertainment for your next event, he is your man!

Details: Birthday party • Close up magic show • 1 - 10 guests • 18 or older • Private residence (indoors)

We didn't know what to expect as it was our 1st time hiring a magician and Chris just blew our minds out! You can't have another special event without this man. He was professional and appropriate, punctal, great communicator and super friendly. Our party consisted of kids between 9-15, plus adults and everyone was so entertained. He was the highlight of our party and something that my guests will always remember as it was everyone's 1st live magic show. There was so much laughter and "ooohhh", "wooow" "whaat"? Can't wait to hire him again.

Details: Birthday party • Close up magic show • Face painting • Balloon twisting • 11 - 20 guests • 7 - 10 years old • 11 - 14 years old • Private residence (outdoors)

This was so fun. I know that most “birthday magicians” have. Very specific look and style that can be a little tacky. And for some people, that’s exactly what they want. But after speaking with you, I wanted to make sure to make it as unique and far from the norm as possible while still delivering an amazing memory for your daughter. I hope she is still talking about this one. I know I am!

There are not enough words to say what an AMAZING JOB Chris Michael did at the Surprise party for our Preteen Daughter, Evie. He blew our minds, and that was just the adults!! The kids were so captivated as he tailored it to all ages, even going so far as ending it with a Harry Potter twist knowing the theme. The best for me was watching him share an unexpected personal story with my child knowing she has aspirations in the acting/singing arena and telling her to never give up on her dreams. This made his show priceless! If you are looking for a magician that is so much more, a mentalist, illusionist, and I have seen some of the best…Chris Michael is among the Top yet humble. This is a true trick that is hard to find my friends. Hire Him!!! The BEST!

Chris was excellent and an amazing professional who exceeded our expectations in every way. We hired him late in the process and we weren’t expecting to bring him into the event because we didn’t plan on hiring a magician. We made the last minute decision to find a magician and didn’t look far beyond him like we would normally do. After taking a chance and going off of what we felt from our conversations, we know we made the best choice we could. We couldn’t have hired a better magician. I’m convinced Chris is not just the top professional but an even better person, which is hard because he’s a 10/10 professional. He’s a genuinely good person, kind, friendly, personable—everything you’d want from someone. He’s excellent. I can’t say enough good things about him.

Details: Birthday party • Walk around magic • 41 - 70 guests • Younger than 4 years old • 18 or older • Restaurant

Chris was the ultimate professional. He was super responsive from the first contact through the event. His skills as a mentalist and magician were superb. He engaged his audience throughout the performance. No one wanted the show to end. Thanks to Chris for making my husbands's 70th so memorable!!

FAQs

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

    ALL FEES ARE INCLUDED! I simply charge a flat appearance fee that covers the ENTIRE event. Message me to discuss your options and we will make sure to go above and beyond for you and your guests.

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

    Hiring me is frictionless and easy! If you send me your phone number and email address, I will be happy to send you more details about myself and my show. Once you decide to book me, I will send over an agreement along with a link to pay a deposit and then BOOM. You are all set.

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

    Much of my show has been culminated by working with the same magicians who taught David Copperfield, Eric Jones, Criss Angel, and David Blaine. I also have managed the most booked show in the North East while on tour during the Summer of 2017. On top of that, I am a marketing expert and corporate planner and I apply my much of knowledge in the field to my work as a magician to provide the highest possible level of entertainment.
