Marissa Latshaw, Gig Masters Marketing VP
Thanks for visiting! I perform Close Up Table / Walk Around Magic, Kids & Family Shows as well as Stage Shows. I'm also a Balloonist, a Children's Activities Specialist, a DJ/MC, a Face Painter and a Party Planner. In addition, I have a great staff of Children's Entertainers and Assistants and can enhance your party or event with great extras like Costumed Characters, Cotton Candy, Caricatures, Inflatable Rides, Ponies, Tent Rentals, Catering, and more...
With children, I am especially animated and present magic that is exciting and contains the element of surprise to fully engage them! They'll be amazed when Cosmo the magic balloon dog is pulled out a card-filled bag holding their selected card, they'll marvel as a volunteer from the audience floats in mid-air and will be enchanted when I transform bubbles into real glass baubles before their very eyes... My show also features some high-spirited humor with magic that "goes wrong." Other options you can choose include daring edge of your seat thrills for the big kids, a magical confetti "snowstorm” conjured by one of the children or a brave assistant can star in the Jigsaw Through Body Illusion!
DIDI MAXX MAGIC OVERVIEW
My shows combine fun & humor with the wonder of magic. They are full of audience participation where many of my routines are designed to appear as though my volunteers do the conjuring! And, there's music to complement the magic for a full experience. The content varies with the audience, so no two shows are exactly the same. I can gear the show toward a particular age group / gender or perform magic that's appropriate for all ages!
I've incorporated my mastery of sleight of hand and misdirection along with years of experience as both a stage performer and performing arts teacher in building a show that both captures a child's imagination and appeals to the intelligence of an adult. EVERYONE is entertained by my shows… read the reviews!
MAGIC AND WONDER
Geared to audiences who are looking for something more exciting. It contains comedy, classical magic, escapes, psychic mentalism and small illusions that defy logic like "Liquid Glass" and "The Jigsaw Through Body."
MAGICAL SORCERESS / CRYSTAL GYPSY WITCH (Ages 6 & Up) Perfect for Halloween with Magic Potions & Mystical Ceremonies!
As a Balloonist, my designs range from simple to complex, with the most complicated design requiring no more than 3 minutes to twist as nobody likes to wait!
I am the Life of the Party for the Party of Your Life! I am an INTERACTIVE performer and party motivator! Whether I DJ or Emcee or simply engage children in Games, Dancing or Theme Party Entertainment, I will be right in the middle of the action dancing, playing, singing, jumping...
