If it’s in your house, I have never seen a basement or living room that wasn’t workable. Just a space thats comfy enough to sit everyone and have me able to move around a little bit. Like I said, I always make it work.
For birthdays, I do not require a deposit. However if you cancel, please read my cancellation policy . As for costs, the price may vary, but are quite affordable. I’d be lying to you if I said I am the cheapest option, that’s likely not the case, but by no means am I the most expensive. When it comes to entertainment, I know the business, I know how to perform for kids and will deliver a great show. For the cheaper options, in most cases the old saying is true – “you get what you pay for”.
These are a real highlight actually. The bags are filled with fun items that are completely magic themed. Each bag has some fun tricks, cool novelties, a magic booklet and a magic wand! The kids love them. Contact to learn more. If you book, you don’t need to confirm the final number until the day before the event.
This is really up to you. I book shows anywhere from 1 day before the event all the way to 18 months before the event. If you want to ensure you have great entertainment at your event, the sooner the better.
No deposit required for birthdays. If you cancel, please make sure you read our cancellation policy.
For birthdays, the show can be set ALMOST anywhere. As long as I am not surrounded. For Company Events I offer amazing flexibility as well. Just make us aware of the performing conditions and I will make it happen!
Yes, for birthdays however please note that its not the optimal environment for a live show. Many distractions occur including heat, wind, random objects and more. If its a fair or festival, we have specific shows for those atmospheres that ensure we don’t run into any problems.
Yes. I’m actually the only magician in Ottawa who features an exotic bird in their show. It’s always a BIG hit.
Because dates are limited if you book a birthday and cancel within 45 days, there is a fee of 50% of the cost.
5+. Kids 4 and under do not connect well with a magic show, no matter who the magician. Note that kids who are ages 5-6 will not see the same show as kids 8-9 etc. Each show is tailored to the specific age group.

Magician With Wands

Dear parent or party planner;

My name is Michael, I’m a professional magician and children’s entertainer who specializes in providing outstanding magic shows for birthday parties in the Ottawa, ON and surrounding area. I’ve been a full-time professional for over 18 years and I would love the chance to entertain your group. I know it’s extremely difficult (and stressful) to plan an event but I assure you, booking my show is one of the easiest things you’ll do.

You’re probably wondering what separates my show from the rest? The show I present is original, extremely exciting, laugh-out-loud funny and completely self-contained, but its not just about the show, its about the booking process, the professionalism and most importantly the experience. If you do a quick search online, you’ll likely find several entertainment options for children’s parties, including other magicians in Ottawa, however entertaining for children is no easy task… One of the biggest differences that sets me a part from the competition, (aside from a great show) is that I have performed at over 2500 children’s events throughout my career and have the necessary experience to entertain kids of all ages. With my show you’re getting a proven performance that is tailored to your group.

It doesn’t just stop at a magic show, when you reserve with me you’ll receive a complimentary party planning guide, printable invitations and non-stop service leading right up to the event itself. Additionally, I offer optional magic themed loot bags and party favours, making your day that much easier. If you’re looking for a fun-filled, affordable and amazing performance, you’ve stopped at the right website; you can count on me to deliver exactly that. Feel free to take a look around my site, watch some HD video and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

See Michael Live In-Person…
