The magic happens right before your eyes...or even in your hands!
Dressed as a "Classical Magician" for a Fundraising Gala
Close-up strolling magic is an ideal ice-breaker--provide a common focus, start conversations, and get your social event off to a lively start! With basically no set-up needed, Markus arrives ready to entertain your guests, with sleight-of-hand that goes beyond the usual card tricks. It's like a series of "mini magic shows".
Markus literally strolls from group to group, mingling among your guests, performing astonishing magic. Everyone becomes involved as they turn to each other in amazement, laugh, and make a connection as they exclaim, "How did he DO that?!" He can dress to blend in, or stand out as "The Magician", or even be costumed to fit your event's theme--just let him know!
Thank you! Thank you! We are so grateful to you for lending your incredible talent to our recent York Hospital event....Our guests were delighted with your extraordinary magical abilities. We all appreciated your sense of humor and it was a pleasure to work with you! KC Christensen-Lang, Former Dir. of Development, York Hospital, ME
Strolling magic is great for events when a full show isn't practical, but you still want all your guests to be entertained:
Project Graduation/Post-Prom Parties
Corporate Parties or Employee Picnics
Receptions and Banquets
Private Parties of All Kinds
Tableside magic for a Renaissance-themed wedding reception
There are no "big illusions" involved. This is the nature of CLOSE-UP magic: intimate, personal, and elegant in its simplicity... and hugely entertaining! Markus' magic isn't just a series of "pick a card" tricks, but a whole array of stunning visual illusions with ordinary objects--napkins, drinking straws, handkerchiefs, salt, cups, rope, coins, paper money, etc. Most importantly, he's a really likeable man, and presents his "tricks" with warmth, humor, friendliness, and wit. Markus' close-up magic will be one of the highlights of your event; your guests will remember how much fun they had for a long time to come!
Restaurants: Do you have long wait times on busy nights? Markus' magic will encourage your patrons to stay! The wait flies by as he dazzles them with magic and fun. And on slow nights? Markus and his entertainment at your restaurant will bring in more customers!
