Entertainers Convention in Mystic, CT

I had the joy of entertaining at a banquet for my peers at a magic and comedy convention in Mystic, CT a few weeks back. It is exciting to hear the laughter. I taught 5 classes on how to add entertainment  and my magic inventions.

After my performance for their Saturday show I had a delightful surprise. My editor, Cathy Gibbons, from Laugh Maker’s Magazine showed up and surprised me and also presented me with the 1st Annual Bob Gibbons Award for Excellence in Family Entertainment! Wow, this was a great surprise. It is fun being a magician and this award is a real honor.

I had fun entertaining the other entertainers at this convention.  I also enjoyed taking a few classes to improve my skills.  A dozen of us even found time to visit the famous Mystic Pizza where they made a movie by that name with Julia Roberts years ago.

I enjoy bringing laughter t0 special events. It is fun to hear the laughter that comes from the comedy magic.  Magic shows add fun to birthday parties, banquets and family events.


I entertain throughout the twin cities and Minnesota. Please give a call when you are looking for party magic for your guests.


Micro Grants Fund Raiser in Minneapolis is a Hit!

On Sunday evening I enjoyed meeting many wonderful people at the Micro Grants Fund Raiser.  This was held at the beautiful grand ballroom of the 601 Graves Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This is right across the street from the Target Center and is known for their fine dining and excellence in service.

The following is the comment that the coordinator of the event wrote to me after the event.  I think they really liked the magician entertainment.

“Norm provided his ‘walk-around’ magic services for our 5th Anniversary Gala at the Graves 601 Hotel here in Minneapolis.  Having used his stage show services in the past, we already knew him to be the best choice. Norm is not only a master magician but doing his ‘mingling magic‘ he’s also a master of providing magic and comedy in a respective and unobtrusive manner. He knows how to work his way in and around the crowd, so you hardly know he’s there until bursts of laughter or “WOWs” are heard from various small groups around the event. Norm, you’re simply the BEST!”
