BEST OF 2016 & 2017! Be sure to watch the sample videos.

More than a comedian, and not your typical magician! Kristoffer Olson's quick-witted, "nerd-chic" character drives a show that is a hybrid of stand-up comedy and magic. With his commitment to audience interaction, your audience becomes a part of the show's jokes and running gags. Your guests will remember your event because they were a part of it! Throughout the show, a funky music soundtrack seamlessly compliments the fun energy of the performer.

A popular choice for banquets, fundraisers, fairs/festivals and post-prom or post-grad parties. His many clients include Thrivent Financial, Supervalu, Red Wing Shoe, Mrs. Meyer's, Honor Flight, Mensa, the Minnesota State Fair, University of Minnesota, Wells Fargo, Milwaukee Summerfest, and Illinois Institute of Technology. Kristoffer has an MBA from the University of Saint Thomas and loves to tailor jokes to a particular company or industry when possible.

During his show, Kristoffer reads the minds of audience members using psychology and their unconscious body language. His pet coat-hangers impress the audience with their talents, an audience member's money appears floating in a sealed water bottle, and a crushed can of coke becomes new again! His shows typically finish with an escape from his suit jacket (see video above for a preview of this).

Your guests may recognize him as The Nerd, a human mascot dancing on the dugout of the Saint Paul Saints baseball games and entertaining fans with improv comedy every summer for the last decade!

Watch the videos and you will get a glimpse into the show that this Midwestern entertainer has performed from Anchorage to London for colleges and Fortune 500 companies. The show works best in a banquet environment after dinner or as the featured entertainment at a conference. Kristoffer is very easy to work with and provides his own sound system (if necessary).

Kris was the emcee for our annual awards luncheon. We were looking for someone with a professional presence to keep the program on schedule - he did that and more. We had a snafu with the catering, so the food came out late; Kris handled the crowd like a pro, letting them know we would starting a little late. When we finally got going, he was funny, but professional and kept everything moving beautifully. We still wrapped up on time, and nobody felt like it was rushed. I can't overstate how valuable having a good emcee is to having a successful event. And Kristoffer Olson a GREAT emcee.

Liked how he visited each table to introduce himself and entertain them with one magic trick before proceeding to the next table. He gave more than the 45 minutes we hired him for. Kris was really hilarious with his magic tricks!
