"New York's Best Reviewed Magician"

How to Fill Your Party With Laughter, Applause, Surprises and Wonder?

Delight and surprise your guests with to my magic show, and I'll help you create magical memories that will last a lifetime.

Astounding Magic. I'm a full-time, professional magician with a "Black Belt in Sleight of Hand" I only perform the most astonishing magical marvels. No cheesy tricks. No corny, fake and phony looking props.

Live Bunny. What's a magic show without a live bunny rabbit? Kids love to see my magical bunny rabbit. After the show they can even come up and pet him!

Birthday Party Magic Shows. The birthday child becomes the star of show and all the children get to help make the magic. Lots of goofy, silly fun. Magic, Juggling, Comedy, Puppetry and More.

Funny! No fooling. My show does more than bewilder and amaze – it entertains. I combine stand-up and improv comedy with mind-boggling magic to create a show that your guests will love.

Experience & Expertise. I'm a full-time professional magician. I was six years old when I learned my first magic trick. I've been performing at parties and events since I was in high school. I've appeared on TV, stages, comedy clubs, parties and events of all kinds.

Magic Show F.A.Q.

Where do you perform?
I'm a NYC magician – but I do a lot of shows in New Jersey and on Long Island too. I travel all over New York City, (Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, Queens, Manhattan) and Long Island from Nassau County, all the way out to Montauk in Suffolk. On any day I might be in Hoboken, Chelsea or Garden City.

Do you do kid's birthday party shows?
I sure do. My magic show is fun for all ages. From 1st birthday parties … all the way to a 100th birthday parties.

Do you perform for adults?
Yes. In fact, I've performed in New York City's best (and worst) comedy clubs for all types of “grown-ups.” I also perform for corporate events, trade shows and senior communities. Every group is different, and so is every show.

What types of tricks do you do? I specialize in “sleight of hand magic.” Sleight of hand, also known as prestidigitation ("quick fingers") or legerdemain (from Middle French léger de main, literally "light of hand"), is the set of techniques used by expert magicians to amaze audiences. Advanced sleight of hand requires months or years of practice before it can be performed proficiently in front of audiences.

Do you work with animals?
Yes, a lovely little bunny rabbit named Tabitha. Doves? No. Doves, even the best trained, can fly into the audience and scare the bejebus out of some folks, and leave droppings in food. Not the best way to entertain!

Magic Show Formats:
Do you want a magic show, or a magician to mix and mingle with guests? I can do both.  Most birthday party magic shows are performed in a “stand-up” format. I set up my show and the guests sit around and watch. I don't need a stage – just enough room for the audience.

Close-Up Magic.
I can perform close-up magic while strolling around the party. I can mingle and do magic at cocktail parties or perform mini-magic shows at guest tables. My close-up magic features sleight of hand and mind reading magic. Very popular for corporate parties, weddings and bar mitzvhas.

Brian grew up in Brooklyn, New York. He got a magic kit for Christmas when he was six years old and worked in a Coney Island magic shop while attending school. Later he performed as a street busker around New York City. At age seventeen he stepped on stage at the legendary Pip's Comedy Club and went on to perform magic and comedy for all types of audiences. He's married to his high school sweetheart and has four incredible children.
