With years of experience as an international comedy stage magician in Brisbane and England, I am going to tip you the real secrets of hiring a high quality magician for your event, and how to avoid the low quality magicians that could actually do more damage than good to your event.
Simple Magicians jargon, the three main types of magicians that entertain your clients and guests in three very distinct ways.
1. A magician that performs card tricks, coin tricks and smaller tricks, ‘street magic’ style, up close, either around tables, or in a drinks reception/mingling environment is called a Close Up Magician, Table Magician, Strolling Magician or even a Street Magician. These magicians are best for getting corporate clients or wedding guests to interact with each other. This type of magic is best for ice breakers at large dinner functions.
2. A magician that performs magic on a stage or in a parlour environment is simply known as a Stage Magician, Parlour Magician or Cabaret Magician. This is best used as a centre piece as it were for a function. Where the guests will sit back in their seats to be entertained. A lot of stage magicians use members of the audience for certain routines. When doing this at corporate functions it creates a lot of laughs and high energy in the room which, in turn, reflects on your party,
3. A magician that performs mind reading or ‘Derren Brown Style Magic’ is known as a Mind Reader, Mind-reader, Psychological Illusionist or Mentalist. magicien Lyon These magicians are best for corporate functions. The energy is more amazement that amusement. It is regarded as a classier style of magic.
Firstly, decide which magician you are looking for and also what type of budget you have at your disposal.
The most important aspect to look for in a magician is the personality of the magician. There are hundreds of extremely technically talented magicians that struggle to perform. The most important function for a magician to execute is to entertain. Therefore, listening to word of mouth is always a good sign of whether a magician is worth their value.
All magicians will say words such as “amazing” and “unbelievable magic”. The best way to sort out the wheat from the chaff is to see if they have a video of their performance.
Magicians that say they have a kids party magic show and a mentalism show and a comedy show all on one very homemade looking website are to be avoided. Look for a magician that only does the field of magic that your require. Look at the photos. Have they invested time into hiring a professional photographer? Are they represented across other agency websites. Through looking at these somewhat insignificant clues you will be able to deduce which magicians are hobbyists promising you the earth and which are supporting themselves with their professional performances.
