Was in audience. Steve involved and surprised everyone in room. We all had a great time and enjoyed his illusions . (I still have the card I drew from the deck!!) He's the Greatest!!

"Mind blowing" and "jaw dropping" are definitely how I would describe the first time I witnessed Steve's magic prowess! "Continuously amazed" and "baffled" would describe every subsequent performance I was lucky to be awestruck by. Steve is truly a unique and inspiring individual! More...

Steve's magic will blow you away. It's a combination of really amazing street magic mixed with comedy and mind reading. It's not cheesy AT ALL. I have seen him perform a few times, one of which was at the Magic Castle, and he was hands down the best act we saw. My whole group agreed that we loved his magic the most. More...

Steve is absolutely mind-blowing! Not your average magician--he does close up magic that will literally make you scream. We've had parties where Steve would mix humor and class, make you laugh uproariously and then go ...HUH?!? WTF?!? How did he DO that?!? Yeah, he's THAT good! Highly recommended if you're looking for quality and a damn good time! More...

What the heck, I can't even believe what Steve can do. As much as I watched his hands I couldn't see the usual tricks. His personality is really fantastic as well . Funny and modest. Just a great guy who happens to be fantastic when it comes to all things magic. More...

Steve is, without a doubt, one of the best close up magicians I have seen - and I've seen him more than once! From the intensity of the Magic Castle to luxury bars in the Hollywood Hills to a Trader Joe's store opening, he always delivers. Some tricks I have seen several times and STILL don't know how he does them! Whatever event you have, he is sure to impress your guests. More...

Steve's magic is both amazing and personable. His, open and friendly manner only increases the enjoyment. Steve has a wonderful ability to interact with his audience that only enhances the experience. Best magic show I have ever seen More...

We have hired Steve Wastell twice now--once for my son's birthday party and once for mine. My son is just turning 32 and is Autistic. Not only is Steve's magic show fun and awesome, he is a warm and sensitive man. My son was so amazed, he followed Steve to the restaurant parking lot as he was leaving after his show. Zack asked Steve if he could make his Autism disappear. Steve paused and thoughtfully told Zack that "No, I can't. But even if I could, I wouldn't because I would not change anything about you. You are great just the way you are". I think that Steve's presence of mind and kindness speak volumes about him.
My 70th birthday party was a big hit as well. Steve tailored his show to the audience, magic is a wonderful form of entertainment for all. There is something so special about being amazed. Steve Wastell is a special and amazing magician!!

Go see Steve perform! You will not be disappointed. Steve is very funny and entertaining while performing his tricks. He really does leave you scratching your head wondering "how did he do that"?

Hands down the best magician you will ever see. If you have seen him at the magic castle you will understand why his seats are always full and people stay for a 2nd or even 3rd show. He is HILLARIOUS and will keep you laughing the entire time. Definitely someone you want at your parties or events. He is the always the first magician I see at the castle. However you may not want to see him perform first because any show you see after his will seem bland. There really is no comparison with this guy. He is the best of the best and kills every single time. More...

Steve is a phenomenal Magician ????
I took my Kids to see him perform and they were blown away by the magic they saw first hand. This was a few years ago so it was their first magic show that made a lasting impression. They ~still~ wonder how he did the flames in his wallet trick! More...

I've seen him perform a few times, and no matter the setting he is a compelling entertainer and an astounding illusionist. Ask him to do the bowling bag trick... More...

We loved having Steve! He was very flexible with our party. We had an intimate group of about 20. The show was originally supposed to be outdoors, but we had to bring it inside due to weather. Steve was super easy-going and set up and ready in no time!
Oh, and did I mention that his act is absolutely mind-blowing????? Seriously, jaw drops all around. What a special, memorable way to amaze both guests and hosts. I HIGHLY recommend Steve Wastell for your event!

Steve helped us last minute with a birthday party, he was very responsive to my emails and the show was out of this world, blew our minds. I would highly recommend him.

FANTASTIC. Look no further. Steve put on a PHENOMENAL performance. We organized a formal dinner+show for a group of about 55 people. The performance was not only awe inspiring, but very well stitched together, and appropriately tailored to our audience. You will be completely captivated. Can't wait to see Steve perform again!

We had a magical night at The Magical Castle thanks to Steve. His magic and showmanship by itself is fantastic, but on this particular night he helped me propose. While I must admit I was a little concerned that he might make the ring disappear rather than appear I could not have been any happier than when she opened her hand to find the ring (well, maybe when she actually said yes). Can't thank this man enough for providing us with such a memorable experience. Looking forward to having you at the wedding. More...

He's fun and very entertaining, great with kids and bar girls and everything in between, and to be honest, some of it's a little spooky. Can't recommend highly enough.

Q&A

I have been lucky enough to be performing magic since 1989 in bars throughout New York and LA. I was a bartender in the beginning that did magic behind the bar. I got to hone my craft nightly with all kinds of crowds. Now I am a full-time professional magician with years of performing under my belt. All those years enabled me to create my style and a show that I am very proud of.

Expect to have your mind blow. I put a lot of work and effort into creating fun up to date magic. I love the classic magic but its not what I do . There are a lot of wonderful magicians that do commercial magic. I like to take my audience to a different place a more modern place and perform magic you may not have seen before.

Connecting with people. Anyone can learn to do a few tricks but really connecting with your audience and taking them on a journey, that's were the real magic begins. That when you start to question reality for a moment and that's the moment I love when that childlike wonder come back into your face.

I know I probably charge a little more that most and you can get a magician theses days for $200 to $300. But I am a full-time professional I have been working my craft for years. I don't just show up and do a few tricks. Every show is brand new a fresh to me, I put my heart and soul into my show everytime.
