Magician Michael performs two types of magic: Stage magic and Close-up magic. Each show is customized for the audience, the location, and the event. These options are described in great detail in the links "Stage" and "Close-up" next to the button for "Shows" in the upper left-hand side of this page.
Stage magic is designed for audiences of a dozen friends up to several hundred people. This comedy-oriented show includes plenty of volunteer participation, where people help create the unique magical experience. Michael's show is ideal for special events which require a singular focus, a headliner who can entertain all of the audience at once. This program works well for banquets, conferences, and special events where people can sit down.
Close-up magic is focused on small groups of individuals, where the Magician mixes and mingles with the crowd. There can be thousands of people at an event, but as Michael strolls through the crowd, everyone gets a chance to be in the front row. The program is ideal for receptions, parties and festivals, where people are standing, socializing, eating and drinking.
Magician Michael enjoys dressing up as a professional entertainer. His standard attire is black tuxedo, crisp white shirt and polished shoes. He also has other costume options, depending on the needs of the client.
For special corporate needs, Michael prefers a sophisticated suit and tie. He knows how to blend right into the world of business, speaking the language and understanding the protocol. Then he springs his magical surprises. Before his magic career, Michael wore many hats in the public and private sectors. His background includes marketing, public relations and customer service. While his attire is subdued, Michael's magic is stunning, eye-opening and jaw dropping. Many corporations have used him as a stealth weapon, to spice up board meetings, workshops and employee seminars.
Just this year, Michael debuted a new character called the Gentleman. This amusing personality is a classic recreation of a turn-of-the-century raconteur. He dresses in top hat and tails. Part riverboat gambler, part medicine show, Gentleman Michael is a rascal with a heart of gold. He'll tickle your funnybone and touch your heart. This program is ideal for adult parties, western hoedowns, casino nights, and boat cruises. For more information, click on the link for "Gentleman" near the "Shows" button above left.
For whimsical events, Michael dresses up as a Wizard, in purple robes and pointy hat. Wizard Michael is happy-go-lucky entertainer, blending fun and mystery. He performs with wands, crystals, and amazing artifacts from the ancient past, like a real meteorite and a fossilized dinosaur fang. He creates curiosity and amazement. Children often follow him like the pied piper. This amazing presentation is ideal for family events, festivals, schools and rennaisance fairs.

As a parent himself, Magician Michael takes special pleasure performing magic at children's birthday parties. This family-friendly show is appropriate for preschoolers, elementary-age kids and teenagers. This is not a clown-style show.
