Voted “Best Children’s Entertainer” by Readers of Neapolitan Family Magazine, and Named “Best Entertainer” in SW FL by Gulfshore Life Magazine.
Commonly known as Florida’s funniest and busiest children’s entertainer, magician Professor Patches has been bringing smiles to Florida’s birthday kids and special events for 16 years now. He is the consummate full-time professional, so when you need it done right, without any worries - Professor Patches is the best choice of entertainers for any special event, no matter which part of Florida you’re in.
Perfect for children ages 3 to 11, Professor Patches’ show is unmatched in its quality of magic and the professionalism of your entire experience. It is expert magic that is age appropriate, though a commonly heard compliment is that the adults will laugh and be amazed as well.
Professor Patches’ reputation is your guarantee that the wonderful memories of your child’s Birthday or special event will last a lifetime!
The 40 minute interactive comedy magic show gets everyone involved, not only as a group, but I get quite a few children up to help. My specialty is making it look like the magic is happening in their hands! It's spectacular because it looks like the children are doing the magic - and they will garner all the applause!
Each child that comes up to help gets an Official Professor Patches Magician's Assistant Certificate to take home with them, of course suitable for framing. This is a one-of-a-kind design which has become a collector’s item in the past few years.
Objects vanish and reappear, right before their eyes, and many times, right in their hands! Rocky the Raccoon, the life-like puppet, makes his entrance to perform several famous tricks and becomes a highlight of the show. This is a show-stopper that will have the kids talking for weeks.
The magic and laughter is nonstop and both the children and the adults will never forget this highly-acclaimed show.
Every child receives the giant dollar bill that has the back side chock full of tricks they can learn to do themselves. And for the younger children, each child additionally receives a Professor Patches Coloring Page, printed in just the perfect size for your refrigerator.
The Birthday Child is the real star of the show. There’s a magical banner that unfurls into a special birthday message with the help of the star. Later, as the birthday child holds some special artwork, it transforms in their hands into a keepsake you’ll treasure forever.
Do you use live animals in your show?
No live animals are used during the show. This ensures no problem with allergies of the children, a mess-free show, no unexpected interaction with the family pets, and no liability issues at all with possible bites. My focus is to have the children be the stars of the show. And don’t forget: the puppetry of Rocky the Raccoon will have the kids believing he is real!
Speaking of liability, are you insured?
Yes! This is very important. Though I’ve never had any problems or incidents, you’ll have peace of mind in knowing that I carry a $1,000,000 Public Liability Insurance Policy to protect my clients, the venues where I work, and myself in case of any unforeseen incident. My policy is underwritten by the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the world’s largest organization for magicians.
Be careful - many magicians claim to have insurance. They should be able to fax or email a current policy to you upon request.
“We called around and asked who was the best kids magician in the area, and everyone said ‘Professor Patches’! Thank you, Professor. Your show was simply amazing!”

I’d heard about you from so many friends and finally had the opportunity to enjoy your show at Danielle’s 5th birthday. I cannot believe the reactions of the kids and the pure astonishment you brought to their faces. You were so professional and helpful to deal with, I can’t thank you enough! We’ll be seeing you again.

Well, Professor Patches - you did it again!
After our 4th birthday party with you with each of our kids, you are still wowing them. You never let us down, and will keep telling our friends about your hilarious and magical show. Enjoy your summer.

Am I glad we found you - we’re done trying other magicians. We decided if we couldn’t get you, we’d change the plans for the event. Thank you for being a pro and one of the nice guys. We’ll do much more work together.
Keep the kids astonished -

. . . It was something to see you hold the attention of 125 kids for that long. They were just dazed in awe, I’ve never seen anything like it. And your story-telling and funny bits kept the adults in stitches. Way to go, Professor. We’ll see you at next year’s event.
