WHY HIRE A MAGICIAN OR A MENTALIST?
let’s face it: you have a lot of entertainment choices.
So why should you book a professional magician, mentalist or illusionist for your event?
Most entertainers are tied to a certain part of a room or venue. A magician or mentalist specializing in up-close sleight-of-hand magic or mental magic can bring the entertainment directly to your guests, wherever they are without the hassle of a PA system or lighting! Strolling or tableside magic can start or stop as at any given moment and effortlessly bridge any unexpected continuity gaps in your event. This type of performance is also the perfect ice breaker and will certainly catalyze interaction!
Strolling magicians are a great choice for wedding receptions, trade shows, networking events and other special occasions where you would want your guests to mingle and interact with each other. Unlike any other form of entertainment, your guests will not have to be passive spectators. When you hire a magician, your guests will become part of the show.
Will any of your guests remember the songs played or the music they heard at your event? Odds are the will not. But when you have a great magician or mentalist, your guests will receive a truly unique entertainment experience. Most likely they will keep talking about the event for weeks or even months!
People have always been fascinated by the impossible. Although there are many types of entertainment from singing to acting, mime to juggling, music to stand-up comedy or acrobatics; none of these can evoke what magic can; a sense of wonder and pure astonishment. Let Richard Stooker be the show-stopping performer for your event. With over 30 years of experience as a professional magician, a performance by Richard will guarantee your satisfaction.
