After the holiday season, I thought that business would slow down, but January ended up being one of the busiest in recent memory. Every weekend was booked with at least two birthday parties for children. I performed all over Los Angeles and even a few parties in Orange County.
February showed a decrease in birthday party bookings, but only because I was being booked as the corporate entertainment for some large events.
Being a birthday party magician takes more skill, experience, and patience than some might think. Most of the birthday parties I do are for ages between 4 and 11 years old. There's an enormous difference when entertaining a group of 4 year olds compared to a group of 11 year olds.
Younger kids have shorter attention spans, so I have to keep the magic very visual and interactive, and although the same is true for the older kids, I actually get to throw in some more sophisticated magic for the older group. Older kids think they have it all figured out, but when they see the magical illusions I present, they're completely blown away. It's a wonderful feeling to see the faces of astonishment and wonderment in every child's face.
Even the adults who watch are amazed by the magic. They're usually not expecting the quality of magic I present from a children's entertainer.
If you're looking for a quality magician for your child's birthday party, give me a call. I know you'll be happy with quality of my services. As a matter of fact, I guarantee it!
