All ages Enjoy Comedy Magic

Two weeks back I did four shows on one day.

The morning magic show was for the school aged child care at the Salvation Army in St. Paul. The director said the show was wonderful and the kids had a great time. It was evident by their faces throughout the show. I like that look of startled amazement that happens after one of the tricks catches the person by surprise.  Magic is amazing.

Later that same day I did three programs for elderly at the Ecumen Parmly Life Points senior care center. These folks were so fun. Many were dressed up in their Halloween hats. They enjoyed joining in and being a part of the show. They remember the classic TV variety shows such as Ed Sullivan, Sonny and Cher, the tonight Show with Johnny Carson. On those programs many variety performers such as myself brought laughs to audiences across America.  So they really enjoy seeing the the comedy and amazing magic tricks in person.

Most of these residents were in wheelchairs, and that is no problem as I brought the tricks right to them. I would pass out ropes to be examined before one stunt, or I would have them hold props and even one is decked out with a star covered cape and magic top hat and then becomes the magician for the vanishing bottle trick. It is very fun, and I love to see the smiling faces and hear the laughter as the tricks unfold. One trick they all enjoyed participating in was when I strolled through the crowd and pulled silver dollars from their ears and elbows.  I enjoyed seeing their gasps of amazement as I filled my bucket with coins.

All ages enjoy seeing a comedy magic show in St. Paul or Minneapolis.  I always have such a happy feeling as I leave a show.  So many people come up after to say it was great.  I just do my best and strive for excellence. For the younger children’s shows, I stand by the exit as the children leave the show and wave goodbye and give them a souvenir from the show. It is fun to see their smiling faces as they say, “Wow, how did you do that?” “my favorite trick was when you…” or “That was so cool.”

For the senior groups I love to walk through the audience and say goodbye to each person. Their faces light up and they offer such nice compliments.  I want them to know I appreciate them and that I was glad when they helped with the various tricks. I’ll ask, “How did you make that scarf disappear? Or, how did you make that newspaper trick work?”  I want everyone at the senior care facility to know that they are special and yet some how they pour their kindness and love back on me and I leave feeling great.

The director of activities at Parmly Care Center wrote a nice letter a week later.

“Thank you so much! I heard some rave reviews!!” – Shannon Y.

Tonight I do my third appearance over the past 6 years for the Senior Group at Saint Alphonsus Church in Brooklyn Center. I look forward to it as they are so much fun.

Last weekend I did a regular adult audience for a school fund raiser. 350-400 adults laughing at the comedy magic is my favorite sound.  I look forward to bringing comedy and fun to your special event in Minnesota. I bring Comedy entertainment to Holiday parties and company banquets. MagicNorm.com

Thank you North Memorial Hospital

The past two weeks have had shows almost every day. Yesterday morning was especially fun as the laughter rang off the walls at a meeting of retired hospital workers.  These people know how to have fun. It was a fun mix of people including the former Vice President of the Hospital.   I love to hear laughter and I wish I could start every day with a show like this one.  Very fun.

The person who invited me to come speak and entertain Carol N. wrote a sweet note after the show and handed it to me.

“Many thanks for coming to our North Memorial Retirees Group today. You are amazing, entertaining, and all around fantastic. Thanks!”

Well, I just like to do my best and I enjoy seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter.  Thank you for inviting me.

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.

Learn more on the magic show and how I adapt the show to fit to the event at MagicNorm.com.

 

***  – 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:

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.



Just Back from Canada

Comic Magician - Magic Norm

Comedy magic shows have taken me all over this summer and now I am back from entertaining at a festival in Canada.  The people are very kind and I even tried a few local favorite foods that I had never heard of.

The comedy and magic shows were very well received  by the families. It is fun to bring smiles to special events.

I had a great time listening to the music at this festival. There were fireworks one night and they were celebrating 70 years of  the Norseman Aircraft. This plane is used now mainly to take tourists up to out of the way lakes and enjoy the excellent fishing in Northern Canada.

I love to be a Magician in Minnesota and bring entertainment to festivals family events and even birthday parties. Please look at MagicNorm.com to learn more.

Grad Party Magic

Sunday was a nice day for a Graduation Party. I had fun bringing comedy and magic to this family Grad party.

The Dad e-mailed this morning a nice note and here is a short quote from his note.

“thank-you again for your great shows and hard work on Sun.  Everyone had such a good time.”

I enjoy family audiences. The little ones are giggling up front and th teens are  scratching their heads with the comedy magic.  The adults laugh at the humor and the graduate helps in the show and is the star. It is fun to see all ages of people laughing and coming together on a sunny afternoon to celebrate,

Laughter is great medicine and brings joy to all ages at special events.

The Fabulous Band – Boogie Wonderland

Boogie Wonderland and Magic Norm

Boogie Wonderland is a high energy band from the Twin Cities that brings a blast of sound from the 70’s & 80’s. Their Disco and Soul infused music is very well executed and presented with lively and powerful stage presence.

I had the opportunity to do my magic between the sets for this fun band during the Anoka County Fair.  They are a great bunch and are very skilled musicians.  They had many kind things to say about my magic show.

I love to present comedy magic at fairs, festivals, summer company picnics and special events. Check it out at MagicNorm.com.
