'The Preferred Choice
Among Ottawa Magicians!'

Have something different at this year's party; LIVE ANIMALS, FUN AND EXCITEMENT guaranteed to be remembered!

Thank you for your interest in my program. Here are some frequently asked questions that I have answered for your convenience; if you have any further inquiries about my show, don’t hesitate to ask.

What kind of space do you require?
Nothing fancy is required. If it’s at your house, a living room or basement is ideal; essentially an area that has enough space to seat everyone and to have my show. I take up very little room, so usually a 5’ x 5’ area is sufficient for me. If it’s at a hall or community center, just a designated area for the show is ideal and it should also be against a wall.

Do you need anything from us?
No, my show is completely self contained which means I bring everything from the tables, music player to the magic itself. All that’s required from you is access to an electrical outlet.

Some magicians offer longer shows than you do....why?
I used to perform all of my shows for 45-50 minutes but what would happen at times (pending on age especially) is the kids would not be able to focus for that long of a period, no matter how entertaining the show is. It has nothing to do with the quality of magic, rather some kids have longer attention spans than others; keep in mind that its a busy, exciting day with lots of games, presents, fun and most likely SUGAR :) and kids will have a hard time staying seated. Over time I shortened the show to 35-40 minutes as it seems to be the perfect length for a fun presentation, while having 100% of there focus. After the show I bring out my live bird and this also adds to my stay and of coarse the value you receive.

How many kids can you perform for?
This is at your discretion really. I set a ceiling of up to 30 kids, but it’s very rare that house parties exceed that. If yours happens to, please let me know as I will have to bring a few additional items.

Can you do loot bags?
Absolutely! My loot bags consist of a magic wand, cool magic tricks, fun games and magic booklet; these loot bags have become quite popular and are certainly remembered over traditional loot bags. They can be included for an additional charge (price calculated per child), just ask me and I will let you know the cost.

How far in advance do you arrive?
I arrive 15-20 minutes ahead of time to set up the show and after the show is complete, it takes me 10 minutes to pack the show up.

Can your show be performed outside?
Yes it can, however because I use live birds in my performance, I would rather be indoors. If outdoors is your only option, it certainly can make the necessary adjustments to keep the birds in the show and perform outside.
