Sam was excellent with kids aged from newborn to 12 or 13 as well as the adults. I received many positive comments and not one negative comment. Look no further for your Magician!

FAQs

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

    Pricing is seasonal and depends on the type of event, how many people will attend and the location. My lowest prices are reserved for parties in private homes.

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

    My profile on Thumbtack and my website at alaka-sam.com introduce customers to the magic and balloon twisting services I provide. I am always available to respond to messages and to talk on the phone to answer any questions you may have and to book your event and save the date and time. Once booked, I continue to be available to answer and questions you may have and I provide confirmations one week and one day prior to the show.

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

    Sam Chamberlain is AlakaSam the Magician! AlakaSam started studying and practicing magic when he was 10 years old. He was an apprentice magician for five years at Howard’s House of Hocus Pocus in Buffalo, New York. He was the assistant to the shop’s owner Howard Eldridge at magic performances and demonstrated and Sam sold magic tricks to customers at the shop. At Cornell University, Sam completed an epistemological study of magic and developed a magic course curriculum that he has since taught many times. While attending Cornell, a housemate came up with the name "AlakaSam" and it has stuck. AlakaSam has now been performing comedy magic and twisting balloon sculptures for over 40 years! He incorporates lots of audience participation and it is a very uplifting experience as the volunteers help accomplish the magic.
