Hello, my name is Dennis Michael
For the last 28 years plus, I have entertained audiences of all ages, at virtually every kind of event you can imagine. I pride myself on being a unique entertainer who provides entertainment that is funny, fresh and memorable. I work regularly doing close up magic in restaurant as a promotional service and have incredible skills as a close up magician for events where strolling entertainment is best suited. I also have a fun and engaging small stage show that I can perform in rooms as small as a living room full of friends to a banquet hall full of club members.
Restaurant promotional entertainment:
I can currently be seen in three South Denver area restaurants where I provide weekly entertainment for guests. My magic performances can be a great draw for families and groups to your restaurant. Magic also has a romantic feeling to it that can lend itself to your date night guest's experience too. One of my restaurants I have successfully partnered with for over 17 years. My restaurant clients understand that my performances in their restaurant are not just a novelty entertainment but a solid marketing and customer relations tool. Don't think of it at "having a magician" think of it as "having a public relations entertainer." More information on my website.
Magic for Grown ups:
More adults are hiring magicians these days to entertain their adult guest and event attendees. With television programs like Penn and Teller's Fool Us! and America's Got Talent there is a positive trend for having adult level magic at events. I have repeat clients who hire me annually and semi annually for their events. I am available for close up magic that happens right in the hands of the spectators as well as an engaging small stage show that is suitable for living rooms,small theater or banquet events. I love doing home parties and cocktail hours. I can provide either close up magic, a sit down show or both depending on your event needs.
For decades I have performed family shows in a variety of public and private events. Festivals, club meetings, mitzvahs and children's birthday parties too. My family shows offer something for everyone. My comedy is always family appropriate and my routines encourage everyone to get involved. every show is different because I do incorporate a lot of improvisational comedy along the way. One thing that sets me apart from other magicians is that I do bring my ukulele to every show. I have a unique list of songs that I play as well as songs that I improvise with the audience. I would love to talk to you about your event.
I am looking at this as a future offering for my company. You have to start somewhere and I am looking for first time clients to help me launch this new part of my business. I make a wonderful "Where's Waldo" and I have some pretty unique ideas for how to help you market your company or event in large crowd settings. Let's talk about setting up a an event and I can share my ideas for how to be a great addition to a private party or a sponsored feature at a public festival or community event.
Dennis is high energy, fun, funny, and clean entertainmnet. Great with big groups and kids love him. He is personable, easy to work with, and professional. Highly recommended to keep the family entertained for an hour. He even has a unique ukulele set that I wasn't expecting but that really rounded out the show. A show they will be talking about.

I should have written this a long time ago but life has been crazy. I just wanted to say thank you to Dennis for making a house full of kids totally entertained for an entire hour. It can be a daunting task to invite so many kids over and not want an average boring party but also make sure they have fun in the process. Dennis really was great with the kids and very entertaining to some of the older adults at the party too! Keep in mind he is an entertainer, not so much a magician (he did try though!!!) which was okay for a bunch of 9 year olds but may have upset a group of adults looking for some "real" magic. Overall he was fantastic and I would definitely recommend him! More...
We just had Dennis for our son's 8th birthday party this past weekend and he was fantastic! It was a Harry Potter themed party and he did a great job of incorporating that.From the very start, Dennis was great to work with. When I was first looking for a magician, I sent him an inquiry. He called me right away and we discussed all of the options open to us, pricing, dates, etc. We considered some other magicians, but Dennis seemed to be the right fit, especially since our son loves both magic and comedy.We opted for the enhanced package - the magic show, a t-shirt signed by all the kids and a magic workshop where the kids would learn tricks and then get them as part of their party favors. This was an hour and a half, which was perfect!Dennis arrived early and was all set and ready to go after we finished potions class. He quickly wrangled the kids and set some ground rules (there were 20 kids, so there needed to be some order). He involved tons of kids in the act, but especially my son who giggled his way through all the tasks he was involved in. There was lots of laughter and amazement (by both kids and adults) and the time seemed to fly. Once they moved on to the workshop, the kids were all super intent to learn the tricks and were the quietest they'd been all day. After the workshop, Dennis handed out all the goodies from his show and the kids were really excited to have their own tricks to perform.I would TOTALLY hire Dennis again and would recommend him to anyone. He was professional, friendly, personable and all at a fair price. I'm so grateful that we found him for our party. He was the perfect entertainment for us! More...
We'd taken our son to the Magic Castle for his 7th birthday, and since then he's been interested in magic. So we figured he'd enjoy having a magician perform for him and his friends at his 8th birthday. Dennis captivated the whole group of 15+ kids. All of his magic is wonderfully performed, but some of his tricks are truly astonishing, especially at close range. The adults enjoyed themselves too. My partner was laughing pretty hard! In addition to the terrific show, we appreciated his special one-on-one time with our son. Thanks for making our son's birthday so special and memorable, Dennis! More...
Dennis recently performed at my eight year old daughter's birthday party.Anyone who can command the attention and control an audience of 15 seven and eight year olds clearly has talent. He allowed the kids to participate in most of the tricks and was able to tailor his act to all ages -- parents and kids alike.I was very happy with Dennis and would recommend him to anyone. More...
