How to Hire a Magician for Your Corporate Event

by Curt Miller

Looking to hire a magician? Not sure where to start? Here are some general tips to make sure you get the perfect match for your event:

1. Decide what kind of magician you're looking for. Yes, there are MANY different kinds of magicians. Some perform exclusively for children. Some are more geared toward adults. Some feature clean comedy. Some are more adult-oriented. If you're planning a corporate event, you definitely don't want a magician that does kid magic and balloon animals!

2. Check out their promotional material. Most professional magicians have a website and a brochure to help you evaluate them and make your decision. A good magician will not be afraid to show you video of his performance so you can see him in action in front of a group like yours. Most will have video on their websites, or you can request a DVD. Start by doing a Google search for "magicians in Houston" or whatever city you're in to get some websites to investigate.

3. Check the magician's credentials. You definitely do NOT want a magician who is just beginning his career. There are fewer things more painful than watching a bad magician! On the other hand, there are fewer things more entertaining than watching a really good magician. Ask for references and check out his previous clients.

4. Spend the extra money and get someone really good. Do your group a favor, and get a professional whom you KNOW will do a great job entertaining your audience. You won't regret it! If a magician is inexpensive, there's probably a good reason. Remember the old saying, "The quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten!"

5. Ask questions. Find out exactly what the magician is offering, what kind of magic he will do, and how long he will entertain your group. Ask if he will perform close-up magic before dinner to warm-up the crowd. Ask if he has more than one type of show available.

I hope these tips help, and good luck with your event!
