5 Tips for Hiring a Magician for your Office Christmas Party

Christmas is the time of miracles. And while we are still a little less than a month or so away from Christmas, many offices are planning the entertainment for their holiday parties right now. Thus, I would like to give you some tips for hiring just the right magician for your year end celebration.

  • Know your audience: Will your event include children or will it be adults only? Will the room be filled with clients with whom you will want to impress and entertain? By knowing as much as you can about the event you will be able to hire a magician who can cater his/her act to the specific guests who will be in attendance.
  • Look over the magician’s website: This will give you an idea of the kinds of magic he/she specializes in and will likely have reviews from people that he has worked for in the past.
  • Decide what type of magic you are looking for: Magic comes in a variety of genres. For events such as parties, a strolling magician is the perfect entertainer to hire. We have great experience interacting with crowds and engaging them in our performances. This feature will help you enliven what might other be a boring, traditional party.christmas tree
  • Decide your budget: The cost of hiring a magician can vary widely depending on the experience of the performer and what you want at your event. Know however, that you won’t find prices on most magician’s websites as each event can have wildly different requirements and magician must have some information from his/her client before an estimate can be given.
  • Ask questions: Once you’ve narrowed down your list of candidates, you should be prepared with a list of questions such as: What types of magic do you perform? How long have you been performing professionally? Where can we see you, or where can we see videos of you performing? Can you provide references? The more information you have the more likely you will be to choose the right performer for your Xmas party.

Having the right magician at your holiday party can be one of the memorable highlights of the event. A truly a great magician will have your guests thanking you for the great entertainment. As a magician in New York City, I have experience making cocktail hours, parties and even every day encounters seem truly magical.
