Comedy Magic for the Minnehaha Comedy Club

I recently entertained with magic and comedy at a trade show event for the Minnehaha Comedy Club of Bloomington, MN.

This was part of a special open house for AAA of MN at their huge office in Edina.

The magic entertainment was well received and Mike, the CEO-Owner of the Minnehaha Comedy Club wrote..”Norm did awesome.”

Some of the best national comedy acts come through the Twin Cities and perform at the Minnehaha Comedy Club in Bloomington. You and your friends will have a blast with the great performers he brings in. Most do clean comedy so that is a plus. Check out their upcoming comedy acts at…

Comedy Magician Dick Oslund in Minneapolis

Dick Oslund will lecture on comedy and magic at the Eagle Magic store on Oct. 21st at 7:00PM
Cost is $15.00 with free refreshments

I first met  The warm and witty Dick Oslund in Arkansas at the 1975 International Brotherhood of Magicians Convention. I was a kid magician at the time and Dick was very kind in his advice and sharing of his great knowledge.  He toured across the country for years as a school show magician and his show was always a hit.

Wood Lake Nature Center brings Comedy Magic to Halloween Event

Wood Lake Nature Center Halloween Event

October is a magical month and this weekend I’ll present my comedy magic for the families at the Wood Lake Nature Center in Richfield, MN. This is a fun event with a DJ, hot coco and a fun walk through the woods.

At this event I will be doing quite a few short magic shows for the groups as they pass through. It is fun to bring laughs to people. This is a very fun setting for families to enjoy as they take a walk through the woods and enjoy the entertainment provided by the comedy magician.

***  – I am adding this edit a few days after the event – the planner sent the link to the Sun Current Newspaper that had a front page photo of kids enjoying the magic show in Richfield, MN.

After planning this event and bringing in the magic show she wrote:

With thanks again.. you are great!,, Karen

I enjoy bringing smiles to special events. Young kids, elementary age and teens enjoy the magic.  I have several adult corporate banquets set for this Holiday season. I brought magic to a 14 year old girl’s party last weekend and the mom said it was a great show.  How can I bring some magic and fun to your next function.

Actor Tony Curtis as Houdini

I have admired Tony Curtis for years and his recent death is a time to reflect on his very full life.

He appeared in many great films including the comedy that the American Film Institute said was the greatest comedy of the 20th century – Some like it Hot with Marilyn Monroe. This film is a laugh riot that is worth checking out again.

As  kid I remember really enjoying his excellent performance in the film Houdini, about the life of the great magician and escape artist. The newspaper mentioned a dozen of his movies, but neglected the one that had a huge impact on my life as an entertainer. Funny how some things seem important to different people.

Seeing the great Houdini come to life in that movie was fascinating. They really captured the life of the 1920’s and vaudeville.  Houdini was world famous as he captured the public’s imagination with his daring escapes and can-do spirit.

When you need entertainment for a special event or party consider a comedy magician in Minneapolis,

Nightmare Hallow-Scream Park at Running Aces

Haunted Hayrides, spook house and D.J.s are just part of the fun at the Running Aces Casino in Forest Lake and Columbus, MN.  This is a wild event that includes strolling monsters and a haunted house.

I entertained the guests last weekend for two nights and we had a very fun time. The Magic and Comedy had the teenagers as well as the parents and youngsters amazed. I enjoy seeing the looks of unbelief on their faces. Come on out as I will be there again this weekend with the crazy comedy magic.

Check it all out off 97 to the west behind Running Aces in Columbus. This is just south of Forest Lake, MN at the Running Aces Casino at

Magic Entertainment for College, Weddings and Banquets

The Fall is just buzzing by and I am thankful for all the kind people who have invited me to perform recently including Minnesota State University in Mankato and the National Association of Parliamentarians at the Crowne Plaza St. Paul.

It was fun to entertain with my comedy magic show at a lovely out door wedding reception. We had a blast. The groom gave a glowing comment that included  “wonderful show, great comedy, awesome magic!”
