How much is a Magician?

So, how much does a magician cost for a birthday party? Do they charge more for certain events? A magician isn’t an everyday service so it can be hard to know what costs to expect.

There is no standard price and it can vary hugely depending on the skills, availability, and location of the magician in question.

Types of Magician

  • Sleight of hand - These sorts of magicians rely a lot on card tricks and the sort of magic tricks you would expect in a small party environment rather than on a big scale with a stage and lots of props.
  • Illusionists - Think of the sort of shows that leave you wondering “how did they do that?”. “Sawing” an assistant in half is an example of an illusion. They often have big stage setups.
  • Children’s Magician - Nothing too heavy. These are the sort of magicians that are fantastic for children’s parties, they tend to have a good rapport with children and plenty of fun and light-hearted tricks. The adults might work out the tricks, but most children will be spellbound.
  • Comedy Magician - Half stand-up comedian, half magician, these are a great choice for getting the guests at a party or wedding involved and having a laugh while being wowed!

How do I check the Magician’s credentials?

Magicians come from a variety of backgrounds, so it can be hard to check their credentials. However, there are a number of different performance guilds as well as prestigious membership clubs such as The Magic Circle. A true magic specialist will probably have a membership to these sorts of organisations so keep an eye out for those who advertise that they are part of a magician’s guild.

In the modern age, you can check a lot about the magician before you employ their services. For example, you can check if they have a YouTube page where you might even be able to watch their magic show and see them in action. Online reviews and testimonials are also a very good way to check that other customers vouch for their skills.

How long have you been interested in magic?

As most magicians, I became interested in magic from about the age of 8! A magic set for Christmas, and I was off... I developed a particular interest in close-up card magic from the time was 14 and have been influenced by many great magicians such as: Dai Vernon, Bill Malone, Brian Gillis, Juan Tamariz and Jonathan Kamm. My interest and enjoyment of magic only gets stronger as the years go by.

Take us through your show – what can we expect?

I have a very personable style of interactive close-up magic with cards, coins and small objects and perform astonishing classic card and coin effects with the magic happening right in front of your guests and often in their hands. I have tricks that are suitable for younger children and the sleight-of-hand is great for adults. At times bills / cards float in the air and decks of playing cards may cut themselves to find a selected card. I also do a few mind reading effects as appropriate.
My style is most suited to moving through a room interacting with individuals or small groups of people so I think would be well suited to what you are looking for. Everyone feels very close, involved and has a good view.
I believe magic should be very fun as well as astonishing and if tricks are done well, people should feel so delighted and nicely mystified that the question of ‘how it’s done’ is not even in their mind… Mainly I want people to have a good time. I’m a pretty straightforward guy, don’t take myself too seriously and work with a lot of good humour. The reactions I get from people are fantastic.

What do you love most about your job?

For me the enjoyment and engagement with a close-up audience is where the real magic lies. Interacting with people is the absolute best. Seeing the enjoyment and delight as people react to 'magic' happening right in front of them or particularly in their hands, is amazing.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I love magic, both seeing it and performing it. I spend a lot of time practicing and decided to become professional at doing something I love and enjoy sharing.

Why should our clients choose you?

I am a professional actor and entertainer, as well as a magician. As an actor, I am very good engaging with people and provide an extremely fun experience for your guests. I look at close-up magic as an amazing and engaging experience which adds a bit of memorable delight and great fun to your party or event. I've worked on stage throughout Scotland and the UK, most recently in The Arabian Nights, the Royal Lyceum Theatre's production of The Arabian Nights. I have also appeared in Outlander and more recently The Cry on BBC 1. Originally from Chicago, I've performed close-up interactive magic at many parties in Chicago and New York. I perform every Thursday night, 9pm to midnight, at The Joker & Thief pub on Leith Walk in Edinburgh and Friday nights, 6 to 8pm at Revolution on Chambers Street, Edinburgh.
