Mike O'Donnell is a Professional Magician and Chicago's leading provider of wonder and amazement. While his stage presence is calculated and precise, his magic is unobtrusive and inviting, embracing laughter and curiosity throughout the entirety of his performances. Be assured, his magic speaks for itself and he happily offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back. He has been honing his craft for over twenty years, with a specialty in sleight of hand magic and pseudo-mind reading.
All of his material is appropriate and professional, sparing those who may not be as partial to the spotlight and embarrassing no one. He specializes in close-up magic, which is an intimate form of entertainment that plays off the audience's participation, the magic often taking place right in the hands of your guests. The term "close-up" by no means relates to the word "small," and his large repertoire of illusions can cater to any setting or age, from small birthdays to weddings to large corporate events. Mike has impressed handfuls of celebrities, politicians, as well as performed at multiple NBA sponsored banquets. His magic is fast paced and visually engaging, but most importantly it's entertaining and sure to bring smiles and originality to your event.
I had a rambunctious, in-your-face group of six-year-olds, but with seemingly endless patience and a sense of humor, Mike kept them engaged and enthralled during the entire show! When my son demanded that Mike acknowledge his Lego man in the middle of the show, Mike took it in stride and made the toy disappear, much to my son's delight. The adults were also impressed with the magic tricks. I would highly recommend Mike for any type of event!
"I've seen Mike in action now twice. Once for office holiday party, the other when I hired him to entertain my 60+ guests for my wife's birthday party. He's a consummate entertainer and professional. Your guests will be amazed and while they may try to stump his magic, it doesn't happen. He puts on a great show and winning attitude! He's an entertainer who I would hire, again and again.

I want to tell you that you were phenomenal on Saturday. Kevin truly enjoyed your spirit and your professionalism. Some of my guest said that you were their favorite entertainment! I even had some guest to say that they might be interested in your services in the future. Thank you for being a part of making my husband's 50th a grand event!
"Mike performed at my 50th birthday. Let me say my father was a professional magician for many years and I hired a magician for his 80th birthday, he was good, Mike is better! People are still telling me how much they enjoyed having him at the party. Mike's variety of elusions is endless and very entertaining. I would recommend him for any gathering from young to old, tame to wild, personal to corporate. You will not be disappointed."

I want to thank you SO MUCH for being a part of the Pink Tie Affair! You did an amazing job and literally everyone that attended can't stop talking about how fantastic you were. You truly have a gift with magic.
Thank you for performing at our 2010 Holiday Party. Attached please find a few pictures. You were professional, prompt, courteous and very entertaining. Definitely the highlight of the evening. We look forward to working with you again and would highly recommend your services.
"Dear Mr. O'Donnell
Thank you for coming out to Oklahoma City and performing at our two playoff games on April 22nd and 24th. Your magic was unique and professional and our fans really enjoyed your show. Your Energy was great with the crowd and you separated yourself from the entertainment that we have had out in the past with your presence alone.

Inviting Mike to perform magic during our party was an excellent choice. For days afterwords, people raved about the magician at the holiday party. I would highly recommend hiring Mike to perform magic at any event.
