“Your show was very entertaining and fun.”

  • Are you available on my date?

    This may seem obvious but you’ll be surprised to know how many people get excited about using a specific magician for their event that they forget to ask the 1 of 7 questions. Finding out later that they could have saved a lot of time asking question one. 

  • Do you provide package options?

    This is a good question to ask because it will let you know how seasoned the magician is. If they are able to tailor the magic show to your event like featuring a specific guest onstage, color scheme or backdrop theme. It turns your event to an unforgettable experience and everyone loves to be apart of an experience. 

  • Do you use audience participation?

    This is a Biggie! In a world of social media, look at me, I hope this isn’t boring culture a magician and any other type of entertainer better use audience participation to keep the audience engaged and entertained. 

  • How long have you been performing?

    This is a good question to ask because it will give you a better idea of what the magician may be able to do without asking you a million questions. A seasoned magician can change the tone of his or her show to keep the pace going throughout any event. 

  • Do you have testimonials?

    Every seasoned event planner knows and understands that by asking this question you will get a better understanding of the caliber of magician and magic show you should expect. (For example) If the magician has testimonials from celebrities and/or fortune 500 people you know that this magician will not perform a magic show that could only be featured at the family reunion.

  • Do you have video live footage?

    Video footage will give you a better understanding of the theater quality of the Magic Show. Think about it! The internet is flooded with so called magicians that can do a phenomenal job of tricking someone with one magic trick. Video footage will allow you to see if they can present a show and not a trick a magic show requires some if not a lot of knowledge in theatrics. 

  • Can you tailor your show to my event?

    This is how you separate your event from any typical run in the mill magic show. When a magician tailors and creates their show to fit your guest and even suggest other magical ideas to add on its defiant to be your “Tailor Made Show”, a show that no one will ever have except you and your guest.
