Vick is a wonderful performer. He drew everyone in with his stories and flair for the whimsical. He had everyone on the room, adult and child, mesmerized - especially with his sword trick. His ability to incorporate even the smallest details about our daughter into his show left her feeling like a star. Thank you Vick for making her birthday an absolutely awesome and memorable day!

Vick was a huge hit at our adult house party. The guests were truly entertained by his stories and showmanship. We were talking about the show for the rest of the evening.

We hired Vick for our wedding reception! I was thinking of a simple way to entertain older folks, young children, and everyone in-between -- he was the answer! Vick had a wonderful story line and great tricks that kept everyone's attention! We had some guests that are very skeptical of magic tricks, and he still blew them away! I'm so happy we had him!We ended up starting his show a little late, unfortunately, but he was incredibly patient, set-up, and mingled with a few guests while he waited! He then put on a 45-50 minute show for all of us, and included some guests, my father, and us in the show! I highly recommend him for ANY event -- weddings, birthdays (children AND adult), social events, etc.Thanks, Vick! More...

An elegant, excellent, magician and showman. Illusions by Vick brought an atmosphere of fun and excitement to our annual Holiday party in December. Flexible, personable and witty Illusions by Vick exceeded our expectations and made a lasting positive memory! Thank you! More...

Vick performed for our daytime holiday office party. Not the easiest of gigs, but he did a fantastic job. Just the right mix of humor, magic, and awwww moments. He was extremely professional and easy to work with. I highly recommend him! More...

Professor Snape appeared at my three daughters’ birthday party. He was extremely professional and easy to work with. He requested details about each of the girls prior to the party and remembered them during his performance. We had guests ages 3 through adult and all were entertained. Highly recommend! More...

Professor Snape appeared for my daughter's 7th birthday. He stayed in character, and interacted with the kids while he was setting up and tearing down. The show was breathtaking. When he started his act only the kids were paying attention, but didn't take long for every parent there to fall under his spell too.

Vick was very professional, very easy to work with, and I can not reccomend him enough. Six months later, when I run into parents who had brought their kids to the party they still talk about it. (I've gotten a few complaints from them that they'll never be able to throw a birthday party as amazing as that one).

He left quite an impression on my daughter, and she frequently talks about Professor Snape.

Vick did his Proffessor Snape show for us. He was very professional and easy to work with leading up to the event (Daughter's 7th birthday Hogwarts themed). On the day-of he showed up right on time, and was engaging with the kids while setting up. When the show started the 30 kids were entranced. I've never seen that many kids sit so still for so long (except when they were trying to get picked as the helper for the next spell). He rolled with questions and comments from the children, and his answers were funny and in character. The magic was fantastic. After the party I had so many people ask where I had found "Snape", and told me it was the best kids' party they had ever been to. I had several parents complain that they would never be able to throw a party that was half as entertaining. I'm continuing getting text messages from parents about how their kids are still talking about it. He made the party; I can't reccomend him enough. More...

Vick preformed at my 7-year-old son’s birthday party and I must say the parents were as entertained as the children. He managed to keep 13 kids (10 adults) not only entertained but part of the show. Since the party, I’ve heard many times that it was one of the best birthday parties ever and we have Vick to thank. We would highly recommend him if you’re in the market for a true professional at his craft. More...

Vick was a pleasure to work with leading up to the our event. He answered emails quickly and thoroughly and was incredibly helpful. He was encouraging of my ideas and tailored his performance to make it fit well with our company and event. On the day of the show he arrived early and felt like an old friend. He performed for our evening party and was exceptional. He was fun, charming and exciting. I received great feedback from our guests. I highly recommend Illusions by Vick! He brings a fun presence, is great to work with and very talented. More...

Vick just performed as Professor Snape (from the Harry Potter books) at my daughter's 9th birthday party and it was absolutely wonderful!  It was a 45 minute magic act and he included both my daughters (the birthday girl and my younger daughter) into his performance.  This was a very nice touch.  The best part was that even though he played Snape perfectly, he was able to capture everyone's attention (not just the Harry Potter fans).  We had a very mixed crowd that included kids and adults, some were avid Harry Potter fans and others didn't know one thing about the books or movies.  After the party was over, everyone commented how great Vick was and complimented me on finding him.  I would highly recommend him!

I hired Illusions by Vick for my husband's 50th Birthday Party and he was amazing! My husband loves magic and he said Vick was the best live magic show he has ever seen. When Vick walked in our door we knew he was the real deal, great outfit, style and personality. The show itself was a lot of fun and interactive. It wasn't your run of the mill tricks. We received many compliments from our guests as well.Vick was easy to work with, answered emails quickly, asked questions, always polite and helpful. We had a great experience, are very happy and highly recommend Illusions by Vick. Thank you Vick. More...

Illusions By Vick performed at our Cub Scout banquet this year and it was a huge success. This particular event had about 30+ Cub Scout boys, ages 6-11, plus about 20+ siblings, ages 2-14, and their parents. He had the kids (and adults) mystified from the moment he walked in the door. When he began his performance it was amazing to me to watch the kids inch closer and closer to the front - and as the show progressed the crowd seemed to get bigger and bigger as the older kids and adults found their way into the audience. His attention to individual children was amazing - making so many boys and girls feel like special participants in his act. My own daughter ended up with a rose from Vick - which she still has, dried and in a special box. My son came home telling me that he wants to be a magician when he grows up. High praise. There is no question that I would use Illusions By Vick again and recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dynamic entertainer for their event. More...

We booked Vick as the entertainer for our daughter's 8th birthday party, and we were excited and pleased by his performance.  He offers a variety of packages, and for our party, Vick took on the persona of Professor Snape (from the Harry Potter books) during a 45 minute magic act.Vick will adjust his performance to meet your preference based on the age and interest of the audience.  He can vary the intensity of Snape's nastiness.  Given the members of our party, Snape was mildly irritated by the non-Slytherins, but not scary.  The magic was captivating and held the interest of both adults and children.Vick's communication during the booking process was excellent and the payment process was clear and easy.  Out of character, he is easy-going, friendly with guests, and always professional.An easy recommendation!

Great magician, interactive and fun show. Did a lot of amazing effects. See Illusions by Vick if you have the opportunity!

" ..... Your unique and dignified approach touched me in a way that most magicians don't. The near macabre but lovely delivery of illusion you employ is almost Tim Burton-esque on the surface, but simultaneously filled with so much heart that all of the departed classically trained magicians surely must be looking over your shoulder each time you extract a sense of wonder in the wry smiles of your audience.
Thank you, Vick, for truly making my day special and bringing a true sense of wonder alive again in me."

From our observations Illusions by Vick is a most amazing magical entertainer. More than the obvious skill level exhibited while handling the effects. Vick shows excellent performance skills (usually reserved for an actor and rarely seen in a magician) which strongly contribute to the feeling that something special and magical is going on around you and you are part to it, invited to peer into a most unusual and magical world

This and Vick’s warm personality create a special connection and brings the audience into the evening’s magical world.

A huge “wow” for what is happening on stage visually; an even bigger “WOW” for the stories and feeling that create the magic in the show and Illusions by Vick.

Vick is a unique personality in entertainers. You are drawn toward Vick as he enters the stage, starts speaking and engaging the audience. After a show Vick makes time to speak and share his love of the art and of magic with guests (on many different levels). It’s obvious (and heart touching) to see that Vick really loves what he does. This is evidenced in how much of himself goes into the show, how much he is willing to give and how genuine he is. How many magicians can you saw that about?

We’ve hired Vick twice and hope to have him back again soon. Also we will be seeing Vick in April at a theater show in Columbia, Maryland. If you have the opportunity and want a great night out with amazing magical entertainment from a class performer we highly recommend Illusions by Vick.

Q&A

Performing Professionally since 2000, during that time Illusions by Vick has the great pleasure to share over 4,000 performances.

Helping audiences to enjoy themselves and the time we have together. When the audience laughs, smiles. experiences wonder and has fun. It really is about the audience, that is where the magic happens. In their minds, hearts and on their faces.

It is about the audience, the entertainment experience they enjoy. My concern is you having the best entertainment experience. I have no problem saying Illusions by Vick is the premier parlor magician in MD, DC, VA & PA. The reviews back that up. The question is am I the right fit for your event? If you're looking for amazing & professional magical entertainment for a corporate or adult event or an all ages event then Illusions by Vick can be a good fit. If your party will be mostly young children ages 6 and under I'm probably not the best fit.

Again I'm here to help, feel free to call or email and I'm glad to assist. Even if I am not the right fit again I want you to have a great entertainment experience. Am glad to help with recommendations and answer questions.

Please don't let price be what determines the magician you hire, there is a lot of difference between one magician, their show and another. Magicians definitely are not interchangeable.
