An Easy Solution for Entertainment at Your Private Event is Closeup Magician Michael Douglas

What is Walk-Around or Closeup Magic?

I perform a type of magical entertainment called “closeup”, “strolling”, or “walk-around” magic.  This style of magic uses small objects and is done within several feet of the audience.  Magicians perform many of these effects right in the hands of the spectators.  This type of magical entertainment is ideal for events where guests will be mingling.  They can be standing or seated.

The coverage rate for a closeup magician is from 50-80 people per hour. It varies according to the size of the clusters he finds and how much time is spent with each cluster of guests. This means an event with 500 guests and a one hour cocktail hour would call for about six close-up magicians if you want to assure that each guest gets to experience the magic. The reality is that it is rare that a closeup magician can reach 100% of the guests without regard to the size of the event. This is so because some people show up late. Some guests are deeply engaged in conversation and it would be rude to interrupt them. Some are eating and a number of other reasons limit our ability to connect with every single attendee at an event even when there is ample time to do so. 

Examples suitable events for a closeup magician include, weddings, rehearsal dinners, family reunions, Bar Mitzvahs, and Bat Mitzvahs. People like you hire me to share closeup magic to help “break the ice,” get audiences involved, get them laughing, and keep their attention.  You will see your guests amazed as I perform minor miracles right before their eyes.

What Props Do You Use?

With Closeup Magic, I use smaller props held in either my or a guest’s hands. These include coins, paper money, finger rings, cards, etc. The marvel of close up magic is that the miracles happen right in front of your guest’s eyes and often right in their own hands.

Walk-Around Magic, has been popularized as Street Magic, and is suitable at the beginning of an event. This style of entertainment is ideal in a restaurant, wedding reception, or banquet setting where guests are seated. The magical merriment fits perfectly before the meal is served or at dessert time.  Other settings that work well for closeup magic are gatherings where guests are standing, as in a cocktail party, picnic, or a queue line for entrance to an event.

How Many People Per Hour Can I Entertain?

My experience as a closeup magician has shown that the number of people that I can entertain varies from 40 to 80 people per hour. It depends on how many minutes I spend with each cluster of people and the size of those clusters. With  strolling magic, I entertain small groups of not more than about six people. The laughter and reactions of a small cluster like this sometimes attracts the attention of people elsewhere in the room. This can lead to that small cluster growing too large for everyone to see the smaller effects used with closeup magic.

To address this, I usually come prepared with a few effects that can play to a larger audience. This allows me to be flexible and adjust to the dynamics of the event at no additional cost to you. You won’t find that with very many other closeup magicians.

Walk-Around Magic doesn’t have the technical requirements that a Stand-Up Comedy Magic Show would have like a stage, special lighting, a public address system, arranged seating, etc. It can start and stop almost instantly, and leaves a lasting impression on your guests due to the mysteries of magic happening in their own hands.
