This magic show had the kids laughing and making ooohs and ahhs.

This was my 5th time bringing the comedy magic entertainment to The Park in Forest Lake, MN.

There were several events this evening.

Before the magic show a lady from the park and rec led the kids in some silly songs and then a Zumba instructor got the kids up for a workshop of exercises.

This time the band after was very fun with three guys doing blues and blue grass!

Comedy Magician for Family audiences in MN

When you are looking for family fun for a company picnic, school or church event, consider the Magician from Minneapolis – Mr. Norm. 

Comedy Magic shows are fun for all ages.This past year the show went to two colleges, 5 fairs, 15 High Schools, and many elementary schools and family audiences. It is magical fun for everyone.

Thank you Wausau area Schools

It was fun to bring the comedy magic and motivational program to several schools in Wausau last week.

The Principal at the afternoon’s school wrote:
“Mr. Norm had the students engaged fully from the first trick. He is witty, talented and very entertaining. He will definitely be back! Also, his reading message is inspirational and powerful.”  –  PatrIMG_7013ick Phalen Principal Mountain Bay Elementary School

It is fun to be a magician with a message that motivates youngsters to read and do their best in school.

The program inspires kids to do their best.

Minnesota Magician back from Performing at Convention in Nevada

It is good to be home in Minnesota, yet it was a lot warmer in Nevada.

I presented three workshops at a convention in Nevada and then did my comedy magic act for their evening show. This is the second time That they have invited me to be their featured performer and guest lecturer.

They wrote:

“We at the WRCA highly recommend the vast entertaining talents of Norm Barnhart.  We have engaged his talents several times and will consider doing so again.  He is also an insightful teacher and very popular with our conventioneers.  You will be hard pressed to find a finer entertainer anywhere.”

W.R.C.A. President – Russell Cornell


I look forward to bringing comedy and magic to your convention, conference or holiday party. My office is in the Twin Cities. If you need a comedy magician for your banquet in Minneapolis or St. Paul – please call. Thanks.

Magical entertainment gets your group laughing as they enjoy the wonder of how the impossible can become possible.

Magician for Roseville High School Lock in.

I had a blast last night presenting magic for the class of 2014 at the Roseville High School Lock in Party.  It was fun to see the student’s faces light up with wonder and amazement.


One parent came up to me and said that many students commented to her that the Magic was the best part of the night.  Well, I love to make people laugh and have fun and it is great to hear that clients are satisfied with the quality of my efforts.


After that appearance I ran up to the North and did a second High School Show at 3AM. That was my 15th year at this High School for their grad party.

Tonight has one at 4AM and then tomorrow there are two different High Schools having our show at 1:00AM and the other at 3:00AM.  It is tiring but, very fun work.  Then on Monday it is the same odd schedule again.  It is great to hear the laughter. One of these schools has had me present entertainment for 17 years in a row and the one this evening has had me 18 years in a row.

Minnesota Magician for Summer Company Picnics

Summer is almost here and I would love to bring some magic to your company picnic. All ages love it and many parents come up after and say they had as much fun as the kids.  I do clean comedy for grown ups too!


I have been presenting high quality magic shows to family audiences for over 28 years. MN State Fair, Kansas and South Dakota state fairs, and many Minnesota County fairs have enjoyed this show. Camp Snoopy had it over a dozen times.


Oh, and besides magic, I am now a best-selling Children’s book author with eight hardcover books from Capstone Press. This summer they will release four more books I wrote during the past 12 months. You not only get a really fun, action-packed magic show, you also get a Minnesota author visit.


Your families will enjoy the interactive comedy and unique magic tricks that I bring. Many of the tricks are my own invention so this is not a typical magic show.


Let me know how I can help bring some fun comedy magic to your upcoming events this summer.


Thank you!

Magician and Mind Reader Alain Nu coming to Twin Cities Magic

One of my favorite Magicians is coming to town. Alain Nu is from the East Coast and has traveled the world with his amazing magic and mind reading feats.


This is from Alain’s Bio:

The star of the 2005 TLC four part hour-long series, “The Mysterious World of Alain Nu” (check out his TV clips on Youtube), Alain Nu is also the author of Amazon #1 Hot New Release, “Picture Your ESP!” Nu is a true working mentalist and his practical and creative ideas have been time tested over his quite illustrious career. 

Indeed, outside his television successes, Alain has a rather prolific background in creative methods for mentalism effects. Having many underground works published numerous times in countless publications and books, including MAGIC, Genii, The Linking Ring (Best Parade 1997), MUM (front cover Dec 1999), Syzygy, The Trap Door, Labyrinth (one man issue), Dear Mr. Fantasy, The Mystery School Book and among others, not to mention his own private releases both in print and no longer in print, many of his ideas have now become well-buried in rare and hard-to-find periodicals.

Plan to learn some KILLER effects during this lecture, but much more than that, learn Alain’s insights about this subject matter and see mentalism from a most unusual yet practical perspective!

 This is indeed a RARE opportunity that you don’t want to miss!

Magician in Minnesota Entertains at Corporate Party

This past weekend a great crowd gathered for the Annual Home Depot Staff Banquet in Forest Lake, MN. They enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Vanelli’s by the Lake and before dinner had a strolling magician bring walk around entertainment. After dinner that same comic magician did his stand up comedy act.


The party planner wrote a nice note after the show.   “Norm was Amazing. He made our company holiday party a blast! We will have him again.”   –  Shantel T.  – Home Depot


If your company is planning a holiday party, awards banquet or other staff appreciation event, check out motivational speaker and comedy magician, Norm at This Magician in Minnesota has upcoming shows this January for company parties in Duluth, Minneapolis, Chippewa Falls, WI and River Falls, WI.

The comedy magician was invited to the company in River Falls after one of their owners saw him perform at a Sheriff’s Association banquet and  benefit for Toys for Tots. This was a wonderful fund raiser back in November, that had nearly 400 adults laughing to the comedy of this magician and also enjoying a keynote by the MN Lynx manager.

Medina Entertainment Center is Excellent Party Place

The Medina Entertainment center is a wonderful place to host a party or banquet. Their rooms are tastefully decorated for the season and the staff is great and the food is very tasty.

I have entertained in every one of their banquet rooms many times over the years. The most recent was for 500 people at the Teamster’s Holiday Party held in the Medina Grand Ballroom. This was my 5th time working for this group over the years. I also appeared at the Halloween party with Chopper for the 3rd time this past October. This party had well over 500 people in attendance. The Medina can handle large groups as well as smaller ones.

The Medina Entertainment Center also has many medium sized rooms that accommodate various size groups. Many groups that have had my show will then send their guests off to go bowling after at the Medina Bowling alley just down the hall. This a great combination for your next party or banquet.

Some groups plan an evening around a special event. One group had my after dinner show in one of the rooms for their guests. Then after my comedy show, many of them went upstairs for a live music act that was performing in the ballroom. That time I think it was the Rockin’ Hollywoods. This is a very cost effective way to have your group enjoy live entertainment without the expense “renting” a band to come to your spot. You might be able to hire a band for $1,000-$3,000 or for $10 a ticket you could send your group of 35 people up to see a great show like the Rockin’ Hollywoods. This is a very economical idea for a smaller holiday party. This is one big benefit of the Medina Entertainment Center.

I have also entertained the Staff at the Medina 3 times and am glad they enjoy my comedy and bring me back again and again. They have recommended me to many of their groups and I am thankful that the see the quality of my work.
