What makes your service unique? Why should I hire you?

When you book an A2 Magic show, you'll get the same commitment to excellence that I have given to over 14,500 other audiences nationally and locally...one performance at a time.

You'll get a high quality, thoroughly entertaining magic show that is clean, professional, and specifically geared to the age and make-up of your audience.

You'll get an entertainer who is 100% reliable (I'll be there, ready to begin at the scheduled time) and who always uses good judgment (nothing offensive or embarrassing to even one member of your audience).  

You'll always get an excellent value. I truly believe that you won't find a better entertainment value in all of Southeastern Michigan. People who hire me (many over and over again) tell me that on a regular basis.

When was the last time you booked a show that was totally risk-free and Guaranteed? Mine is! I don't know of any other magician or entertainer who will honor this offer. Schedule any of my services for your next event and If your group isn't delighted, your show is FREE!

One last detail...and this is important! If I should happen to be unavailable for your event, I'll be glad to refer one or two other magicians or entertainers whom I respect and trust will do a great job for you. My goal is to make your experience a totally pleasant one. I'd much rather have you book another qualified professional, than mistakenly hire one who is not up to par.

Should I call the day before the show to confirm that you will be there for my event?

This is certainly a legitimate question. I receive several calls every year from distraught people who have planned parties or other events, saying their magician, clown or entertainer cancelled at the last minute and asking if I could possibly fill in. This is something you will never need to be concerned with when you book my services.
 
You are certainly welcome to call me at any time if you have questions or concerns. However, you can be confident knowing that I take every commitment seriously. My reputation depends on it!

In over 14,500 shows over the past 49 years, I have never missed a single performance. Once you have scheduled an A2 Magic show, you can count on me being there.

How soon should I book the show?

Typically, the sooner the better, if you would like choice times and dates.
I'm fortunate to do as many as 40 shows each month. Weekends and holidays are especially busy. While many people will check my availability prior to setting their event date, it's always to your advantage to reserve your date as soon as possible.

Do you use animals in your show? Do you use any dangerous items?

A great show is best determined by the quality and experience of the magician and the favorable and enthusiastic response of the audience. I can offer you the best of both factors without the potential problems that animals or dangerous items may present.

Animals are sometimes a pleasant addition to a stage magician's performance, but in your home, or in close quarters, there are some important things you may want to consider.

It doesn't happen often, but it does happen...Over the years, I have heard of several instances where audience members have been frightened by the sudden appearance of a dove, or "nipped" on the finger by the bunny, not to mention the possibilities of allergies of invited guests, or soiled carpets and furniture by the animals.

Some magicians will do tricks with fire, knives or dangerous items and often not use good judgment in choosing the proper environment and audience to perform them for.

My goal has always been to maximize the fun and entertainment in my show while at the same time eliminating any potential problems that may occur through the use of animals, fire or any dangerous materials that may not be perfectly suited to the audience that I am working for.

How do you require payment? Is a deposit necessary?

I like to make booking your show hassle-free and as convenient as possible. Most entertainers will ask for a non-refundable deposit once a date is reserved. I usually don't.

Once the show is booked over the phone, you can count on me being there! There is never a deposit required up front, except in very rare situations where alternative rain dates are reserved for outdoor performances. Payment is generally not due until after the show has been presented. Payment may be made by check or by cash, whichever is most convenient for you.

What is the length of your show?

The length of my performances vary, depending on the nature of the show, and will generally run anywhere from 15-45 minutes.

A telegram, a birthday party, a banquet, or walk-around magic at an open house or wedding reception will all run for different lengths of time. Thousands of performances, in all types of venues, have taught me that it's always better to leave an audience wanting a little more rather than overstaying your welcome. My shows are all well rehearsed and well timed to provide maximum impact without running a minute too long. Once I have all the details of your event, I'll be able to suggest the type of performance which will be most effective, and the correct amount of time to best suit your needs.

Here are some general rules of thumb for  gauging the most effective performance times.

A Magic-Gram / Telegram - 15 or 25 minutes.
A Child's Birthday Party - 30-45 minutes.
Banquet, School Assembly, Library or Picnic - 30-45 minutes.
Walk-Around / Close-Up Magic - Usually by the hour.
(Depending on the size of the audience - 40-75 guests per hour.)

How do you dress for your performance?

You can always expect me to dress in a manner that is neat, clean, professional and best suited to the type of performance that I will be giving.

A child's birthday party and a black-tie affair certainly call for different forms of attire. Very often, especially on weekends, I will do as many as 4-6 shows in one day - from a 30th, 40th or 50th birthday telegram to a company picnic, from an anniversary celebration to a church festival.  Usually, in a case such as this, I will be dressed in a way that will most suitably adapt to all events.

Many younger children are frightened by clowns and character performers.
As I do a great deal of family and children's shows, I prefer to dress in a way that will put them at ease and allow me to focus on presenting a high-energy, laugh-packed magic show perfectly geared to their level.

How much space do you need?

I'm perfectly comfortable working close to an audience. In fact, I prefer it.
I can get by working in a space as small as 4'X4', if necessary, with the audience 3' in front of me. Ideally, a larger space would be better and would allow greater flexibility. In practically any circumstance, I am able to adapt.

It is always best for the audience to be directly in front of the performance area, rather than in the round. If you are planning a banquet show, it would be to your advantage to discuss details with me prior to setting up the room.
