Mendakota Country Club presents Winter Carnival

St Paul Winter Carnival Royalty with Magician

Norm with Art Blakley, Jr. and Queen of the Snow

This past weekend the Mendakota Country Club hosted its own special Winter Carnival. Many members and guests came to enjoy a weekend of fun with snow boarding, hockey a winter golf course and medallion hunt. Sunday was the finale with a breat brunch and an appearance by the St Paul Winter Carnival Royalty. Out front the Vulcans and their fire truck kept the grounds buzzing with rides and activities. Inside the Royalty gave out several citations to the Mendakota chef and staff including manager Perry Johnson.

Following the honors I presented my comedy magic show for the families.  There were lots of smiles and laughs. We had a great time.  I have had the opportunity to present the comedy magic show at Mendakota several times over the years for corporate banquets and special parties.  I am honored that they call be back again and again.

After that show I had to race to Woodbury and then Hopkins for two other shows that day.  The schedule was not too tight and I had plenty of time to get to each program. I am thankful to be so busy entertaining families with my comedy and magic show.

When you need a Minnesota Magician, please give a call and I’ll do my best to bring you a fun and fascinating show.  Please check

Magic Brings Good Reviews

Thank you for the nice comments after the shows. It is always nice to hear from people who enjoy the comedy magic show.

Recently, Andy the Assistant Director of the Racine County Fair in Wisconsin wrote, “Norm’s Magic is terrific. Fast moving & entertaining.”

I enjoy bringing laughs and amazing comedy magic entertainment to groups of all ages. If you need a Magician in Wisconsin or a Minnesota magician call me.

Book Signing Event a Blast

Comedy magician and Minnesota Author Autographs books in St Paul's Red Balloon Bookstore

I had a blast entertaining and then doing a book signing at the Red Balloon Bookstore last weekend. Several friends who are entertainers showed up and that was great to see them again.The families were great and I enjoyed meeting so many nice people. I was excited to see the reception my books have had and it is fun to be a Minnesota Author.

One gentleman who works for 3M brought his son and it was fun to see the smile on his face when his son became the star of the show and did a few tricks with me.  I try to involved the whole audience and make each kid feel like they are helping to make the magic happen. A favorite is one of my original tricks where snowflakes are magically pull from the children’s ears and then they start tossing them into the pan and an audible “plink” is heard as they toss their invisible snowflakes in. A moment later, the flakes assemble and a magical snowman appears! It is fun to see their reaction of amazement.

The Red Balloon Bookstore recently wrote and said that they received wonderful feedback and that the staff is still raving about the event. They are looking forward to a return engagement.

I love to bring comedy and magic to store promotions.  My magical entertainment has appeared at many malls and shopping centers over the years. Last year a Target store invited me to do their annual celebration. Kids and adults enjoy fun magic and comedy.  More information at

Comedy Magic Brings Life to Special Events

One fond memory in this crazy show business life is from the 1990’s when I was asked to do magic for a grand opening of a Colors of Benniton store at a Mall. I designed a magic show that could be done silently in the store window that used several of their products and also used the store colors. A few tricks I created or adapted for this event included making the Benniton Lipstick appear from a flash of fire and having their logo magically appear.  It was a fun event and I always enjoy adapting the magic to fit the occasion.

Magic is a fun way to draw a crowd and create interest in the event. How can I be of service to your company or special event? Please let me know and I’ll help you create a fun event amd adapt the magic show to fit your theme.
