Here are some common questions about our magic shows.
How much do you charge?
Prices depend on which package you are interested in, your location, the length of time needed, etc. My prices are competitive, but I do not guarantee that I have the lowest price. I provide a professional quality show that sometimes involves thousands of dollars worth of props. I’ve also invested an untold number of hours to develop and practice my Magic routines. I aim to deliver a top quality show that audiences consistently find funny and awe inspiring for each and every performance. You may be able to find a lower priced Magician, but you’ll have trouble finding the value that I offer. For a price quote, please use the Contact Michael page or call my booking assistant at 919-391-8113.
What should you know about deposits and cancellations?
When your program is booked you will be sent a show confirmation, at which time a deposit is required to secure the date. I’d be skeptical of someone who doesn’t ask for a deposit. If you’ve NOT provided partial payment then they have LESS of an obligation to show up for your event. Some performers will cancel a date to take a higher paying show somewhere else. When you secure your date with me, you can rest assured I’ll show up AND be there on time. There are certain conditions under which I will waive a deposit requirement, but that is rare.
If you need to cancel, please email that cancellation to email@example.com at least four weeks before your scheduled event for a full refund of your deposit. This allows others interested in that same date to enjoy the performances that I share. The deposit on cancellations with less than a four week notice will be applied to a future date to be negotiated. The deposit is forfeited if the rescheduled performance date does not occur within three months of the original date.
What geographic area do you serve?
Although I am a Magician living in Raleigh, I also perform comedy magic shows in other counties and cities throughout North Carolina.
This includes Durham, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Wake Forest, Rocky Mount, Fayetteville, Asheville, Charlotte, Wilmington, Greensville, Jacksonville, and others. I also serve clients in Virginia and elsewhere.
How far in advance should I contact you to reserve a date?
Can you do a shorter show?
Yes, I can do a shorter show but it does not affect the pricing. It takes a lot of effort and time to pack up, travel, setup, and perform a show. The effort involved with doing a show that is shorter than my normal 45 minutes is not much different than the effort to do the normal show. As such, the pricing for shorter shows is the same as the normal show length.
May I photograph or videotape the show?
What kind of tricks do you do?
Suffice it to say that you can expect to see objects defy the laws of physics and to experience unexplainable mind-reading effects. What’s more important is that I get the audience invoved with making the magic happen in a way that generates tons of laughs all along the way. Know that I only use clean comedy and everything will be age appropriate.
When on the party agenda should the magic show start?
Do you perform outdoors?
If you are planning an outdoor party, be sure to have an indoor backup performance location in case of inclement weather. There may be an additional charge for shows held outdoors.
