All magicians are not the same just like all barbers are not the same.  It is important to be aware of the kinds of questions to ask.

  1. There are many kinds of magicians.  Some specialize in performing for children while some specialize in adults. Some feature clean comedy and some are more adult-comedy.

2. By all means, check out a video of the magician if one is available.  Your search can start by doing a search for “magicians in Yourtown”

3.  Watching an experienced magician is very entertaining and creates happy memories for years to come.  Ask for references from previous clients.

4.  The old adage of “you get what you pay for” applies to magicians too.  If a magician’s rate is inexpensive, there is probably a good reason for that and you might want to keep looking. 

5.  Most professional magicians have more than one show to offer and more than one style of magic. For example, find out if there will be strolling magic as a warm-up prior to the stage show.

Follow these steps and you should be happy with the end result.

May every day be magic–
