“The Guests are still talking about you!”
Marsha – Morgan Stanley
Choosing the right corporate entertainment for your event is a tricky one, people have different tastes and theres a lot of people to please. I’ve performed at countless corporate events from staff christmas parties and product launches to client entertainment and award ceremonies. I’m very easy going and won’t offend anyone but will leave them laughing and astonished what they just witnessed!
One of the most popular times to have a magician is during a drinks reception or cocktail hour. I’ll mingle amongst your guests as they arrive wowing them in small groups of between three and six at a time. I often get hired to perform at drinks receptions for networking events, before an awards ceremony or dinner or at the drinks receptions for conferences and exhibitions. Magic works really well as an ice breaker for people who might not know each so well.
Sit Down Dinners
Another way that I get hired to perform is as a close-up table magician. If your event is having a sit down dinner, I’ll go around table to table performing a short show for all the guests on that table. It’s probably my favourite way of performing for people. I’m often hired as table magician for Christmas Parties, Staff Incentives, Corporate Charity Fundraisers and lots of other types of events.
I also have a stand up after dinner slot lasting around 20 minutes which is great for performing for everyone at the same time and ensuring that no one misses out on seeing some magic. Also if it’s a smaller amount of people round the dinner table I can do a up to 30 minutes parlour style which is a more intimate and what I usually recommend for small dinner parties.
I can perform no matter what size your event is. I’m equally comfortable performing for 12 people over dinner as I am at an awards ceremony with over 300 guests. That being said, for the larger events I recommend calling in some of my other magician colleagues to help out as that way we’ll be hopefully be able to get round everyone! I’m a member of the world famous Magic Circle so don’t worry the other magicians I work with are the best in the business.
