Post Prom Party a Magical Success

I had a great time entertaining last night, or should I say, this morning at 3:00AM for a great bunch of High School students at their post prom lock in event. The sound of laughter from over 200 high school students was a delight to hear.

The key to success in show biz or any other business is repeat and referral clients. This year was my14th time visiting this school and I always have a great time with the students.  The magic and mystery wows them and the comedy gets them laughing for a solid hour and 20 minutes. They are already preparing to re- book for next year. I love to bring laughs and have satisfied clients.

I stay very busy with my comedy and magic and I enjoy performing for business groups as well as for family parties. I also love to bring my clean comedy to high school age people and watch their faces light up in amazement.  I have ove 28 years of experience bringing laughter to events and I can tailor the program to fit the audience demographic.  Check out my site…

Comedy Magic in Winnipeg

This past week I was a featured performer and M.C. at at convention in Winnipeg, Canada.  It was a blast entertaining and teaching classes for this fun group of family entertainers and performers. These entertainers are always looking for something new to add to their shows for family parties and special events so they were very positive in their response to my magic classes.

it was fun to be the M.C. for two of the shows here. I also M.C. for the kick off event.  The way I do M.C. work for this group involved doing some longer 2-3 minute bits between contestants in their international contest.  I bring lots of stand up comedy as well ans magic and some prop gags.   The people were very enthusiastic and kind in their comments after.

This group was also very appreciative of the comedy magic classes that I taught.  I share many original routines and magic tricks.  I have invented many tricks and it is fun to hear other entertainers say, “I like that, and I want to add it to my show!”  My classes recieved many great reviews fromthe participants.

I have worked this convention more than 7 times and always enjoy bringing some smiles to the attendees each time.  I look forward to entertaining at your next event or convention.

Minnesota Twins Great Tony Oliva

Lots of people lined up to get an autograph from Tony Oliva great player for the Minnesota Twins. I am fortunate to have a very fun job. I was invited to entertain those in line with my comedy magic and strolling entertainment. When the line ended I was able to get an autograph from Mr. Oliva too. Tony is a great guy and was so kind to the many fans.

Hundreds of people waited up to an hour in line for their opportunity to meet the former Minnesota Twins player. It was very fun to share my magic and comedy with these families.

Baseball season has started again and the new Target Field is going to be a place where many more memories are made.
