skilled sleight-of-hand magic,
a few people at a time,
with their very own 5 to 10 minute high-energy "mini" magic show.

Close-up Magic Performance Options:
Whether performing Mix & Mingle Magic or Table-side Magic, for small groups of guests at a time, or a Formal Close-up Show before the whole gathering, our magician will fill the room with laughter and gasps of amazement!
MIX & MINGLE MAGIC
For events where guests will be mixing and mingling, your magician will mix and mingle with them. The magician will move freely around your event, mixing and mingling with your guests, performing intimate 5-10 minute "mini" magic shows, for a few people at a time. This is a great entertainment choice for larger company events (groups of 60 or more).
For events where guests will be seated at tables, your magician will entertain each table with their own, mini magic show. The magician moves from table to table (typically before or after a meal), where guests are seated. He performs a 5-10 minute mini magic show at each table. This is an ideal entertainment option for larger corporate events (groups of 60 or more).
FORMAL CLOSE-UP SHOW
The magician sets up a small table and your guests sit in chairs, up close, in front of the magician. He performs a 30-45 minute close-up magic show for the entire group. This is an ideal performance option for smaller gatherings (groups of 50 or fewer).

Mind Games & Magic™ is an enlightening and entertaining keynote combining magic, mind reading and a thought-provoking message.
In this keynote, a professional magician reveals how our brains are led astray, and how misperception, in turn, can lead to thoughts,
feelings and behaviors that can be detrimental to health, happiness and success, both in our businesses and in our personal lives.
Magic owes it's success simply to misunderstanding. What we call a magic show is nothing but a collection of different misperceptions. Magicians exploit natural vulnerabilities in the how the brain processes our perceptions. In our daily lives, we seldom question the accuracy of our perceptions. Without realizing it, we simply assume that the way we think is the way things really are. The technique of dramatizing perceptual errors through magic & illusion helps confirm that our perceptions are not as accurate as we may think.
In a fun and informative way, our Mind Games & Magic™ keynote brings audiences to a new awareness of the power of perception and its influence on our lives, at home and in the workplace. The more aware we are of our perceptions and how they influence our choices, the more we can take responsibility for those perceptions, examine them and test them against reality, thereby creating a more accurate perspective from which to make improved choices in the future.
