SHOW OPTIONS:

Cocktail Conjuring: This is entertainment that moves throughout your event, as Ben meets and greets your guests, making new connections and encouraging interactions among your arriving attendees. Ben mingles during cocktails and also from table to table, if the venue is more suited towards a sit-down reception. This is a very flexible style of entertaining which allows all of your guests the opportunity to interact with intimate sleight-of-hand magic that occurs inches away from their nose.

One Man Show: Forget the top hats, big boxes, and furry woodland creatures. Ben's one man show is a non-stop rollercoaster of excitement that mixes comedy with mind-blowing sleight-of-hand. His act has been featured at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA, and multiple corporate functions across the country. Your guests have never witnessed magic like this before and they'll talk about it forever. Coins dance across his fingertips, signed playing cards travel to impossible locations, full-size cocktails appear from nowhere, and cell phones… well, you'll just have to see it to believe it. For an audience that can be seated throughout the performance, in view of a stage that is little more than a bridge table, this is a show with impact that will last a lifetime.

Trade Show Services: Whether it's on the trade show floor or in hospitality suites, few feature attractions can match the effectiveness of magic in drawing and holding a crowd while communicating your marketing messages. Increase the traffic to your booth with quick and visual effects and relax knowing that Ben will provide a professional face to your organization with an engaging and interactive presentation.

Master of Ceremonies: There's nothing like a boring and mumbling MC to slow down an evening of festivities. Leave it to Ben to provide entertaining, witty, and custom transitions that will keep the audience engaged. Whether it's performing stand up magic effects or composing comedic songs on the piano, event planners go to Ben to ensure a professional evening of magic, music, and a little bit of mayhem.

Ben performed mingling magic at our cocktail hour in between our wedding ceremony and reception, and although we were out taking pictures we have had RAVE reviews from our guests... Ben is not your ordinary magician, he impressed the pants off these people. I would recommend Ben if you want to add that extra "wow" factor to your event. He was also very accommodating and helped us execute our special "grand entrance" to our reception, and hopped on the phone with us the week before the wedding just to make sure everything was good to go as planned. He also stopped by our sweetheart table on his way out so we could enjoy one last trick :) Thanks Ben!!
