Asking several questions is a great way to get a good sense
of the quality and professionalism of the magician or entertainer
you are considering for your event. Here are several Frequently
Asked Questions that I hear on a regular basis. You can click

I hire you?
you book an A2 Magic show, you'll get the same commitment to
excellence that I have given to over 14,500 other audiences
nationally and locally...one performance at a time.
get a high quality, thoroughly entertaining magic show that
is clean, professional, and specifically
geared to the age and make-up of your audience.
get an entertainer who is 100% reliable
(I'll be there, ready to begin at the scheduled time) and who
always uses good judgment (nothing offensive or embarrassing
to even one member of your audience).
You'll always get an excellent value. I truly believe that you
won't find a better entertainment value in all of Southeastern
Michigan. People who hire me (many over and over again) tell
me that on a regular basis.
was the last time you booked a show that
was totally risk-free and Guaranteed?
Mine is! I don't know of any other magician or entertainer who
will honor this offer. Schedule any of my services for your
next event and If your group isn't delighted, your show is FREE!
One last detail...and
this is important! If I should happen to be unavailable for
your event, I'll be glad to refer one or two other magicians
or entertainers whom I respect and trust will do a great job
for you. My goal is to make your experience a totally pleasant
one. I'd much rather have you book another qualified professional,
than mistakenly hire one who is not up to par.

Should I call the day before the show to confirm that you will
be there for my event?
This is certainly a legitimate question.
I receive several calls every year from distraught people who
have planned parties or other events, saying their magician,
clown or entertainer cancelled at the last minute and asking
if I could possibly fill in. This is something you will never
need to be concerned with when you book my services.
You are certainly welcome to call me at any time if you have
questions or concerns. However, you can be confident knowing
that I take every commitment seriously. My reputation depends
In over 14,500 shows over the past 49 years, I have never missed
a single performance. Once you have scheduled an A2 Magic show,
you can count on me being there.

How soon should I book the show?
sooner the better, if you would like choice times and dates.
I'm fortunate to do as many as 40 shows each month. Weekends
and holidays are especially busy. While many people will check
my availability prior to setting their event date, it's always
to your advantage to reserve your date as soon as possible.

Do you use animals in your show? Do you use any dangerous
A great show is best determined by the
quality and experience of the magician and the favorable and
enthusiastic response of the audience. I can offer you the best
of both factors without the potential problems that animals
or dangerous items may present.
Animals are sometimes a pleasant addition to a stage magician's
performance, but in your home, or in close quarters, there are
some important things you may want to consider.
It doesn't happen often, but it does happen...Over the years,
I have heard of several instances where audience members have
been frightened by the sudden appearance of a dove, or "nipped"
on the finger by the bunny, not to mention the possibilities
of allergies of invited guests, or soiled carpets and furniture
by the animals.
magicians will do tricks with fire, knives or dangerous items
and often not use good judgment in choosing the proper environment
and audience to perform them for.
My goal has always been to maximize the fun and entertainment
in my show while at the same time eliminating any potential
problems that may occur through the use of animals, fire or
any dangerous materials that may not be perfectly suited to
the audience that I am working for.

How do you require payment? Is a deposit necessary?
I like to make booking your show hassle-free
and as convenient as possible. Most entertainers will ask for
a non-refundable deposit once a date is reserved. I usually
Once the show is booked over the phone, you can count on me
being there! There is never a deposit required up front, except
in very rare situations where alternative rain dates are reserved
for outdoor performances. Payment is generally not due until
after the show has been presented. Payment may be made by check
or by cash, whichever is most convenient for you.

What is the length of your show?
The length of my performances vary, depending
on the nature of the show, and will generally run anywhere from
telegram, a birthday party, a banquet, or walk-around magic
at an open house or wedding reception will all run for different
lengths of time. Thousands of performances, in all types of
venues, have taught me that it's always better to leave an audience
wanting a little more rather than overstaying your welcome.
My shows are all well rehearsed and well timed to provide maximum
impact without running a minute too long. Once I have all the
details of your event, I'll be able to suggest the type of performance
which will be most effective, and the correct amount of time
to best suit your needs.
are some general rules of thumb for gauging the most
effective performance times.
A Magic-Gram / Telegram - 15 or 25 minutes.
A Child's Birthday Party - 30-45 minutes.
Banquet, School Assembly, Library or Picnic - 30-45 minutes.
Walk-Around / Close-Up Magic - Usually by the hour.
(Depending on the size of the audience - 40-75 guests per

How do you dress for your performance?
You can always expect me to dress
in a manner that is neat, clean, professional and best suited
to the type of performance that I will be giving.
child's birthday party and a black-tie affair certainly call
for different forms of attire. Very often, especially on weekends,
I will do as many as 4-6 shows in one day - from a 30th, 40th
or 50th birthday telegram to a company picnic, from an anniversary
celebration to a church festival. Usually,
in a case such as this, I will be dressed in a way that will
most suitably adapt to all events.
Many younger children are frightened by clowns and character
As I do a great deal of family and children's shows, I prefer
to dress in a way that will put them at ease and allow me to
focus on presenting a high-energy, laugh-packed magic show perfectly
geared to their level.

How much space do you need?
I'm perfectly comfortable working close
to an audience. In fact, I prefer it.
I can get by working in a space as small as 4'X4', if necessary,
with the audience 3' in front of me. Ideally, a larger
space would be better and would allow greater flexibility. In
practically any circumstance, I am able to adapt.
is always best for the audience to be directly in front of the
performance area, rather than in the round. If you are planning
a banquet show, it would be to your advantage to discuss details
with me prior to setting up the room.
