*** BREAKING NEWS SPRING 2015 COSTUME CHARACTERS AVAILABLE FOR EVERY EVENT ***
Costume characters will be brought to any event you are having and performed by family as his sons join in the fun of performing
1. Corporate (Adult) PERFORMANCE includes many of my skills from a variety of complicated, confusing and just plain mind boggling magic effects to comedy audience participation magic routines. These are intermingled with circus skills which include juggling, unicycling and even a straight jacket escape can be seen in some performances.
2. The STAGE STYLE (Family) PERFORMANCE includes a similar mix of magic and circus skills, however there is a lot more sillyness in this show and as a Finale a child will be seen floating 3 feet in the air (if the event is for a birthday the guest of honor will be chosen).
3. WALKABOUT/SIDESHOW PERFORMANCE this can include fire eating, fire juggling and also Stilt Walking, great way to entertain people in an environment where you don't want them to be in one place for any length of time, such as a grand opening, a festival, night club and even weddings. This style of entertainment allows your guests to mingle while still being entertained.
THE STAGE AREA
This term is used lightly these days since more and more performance venues don't actually have a stage so I bring everything needed to create such a space, A 12 foot backdrop to create a theater style atmosphere, 2 large banners one either side of the backdrop to add more depth and color, lighting for use where needed, and a full sound system to use with the choreographed magic effects and also for use with my personal wireless microphone.
I take this seriously this is my career, therefore I dont turn up to perform dressed in jeans, t-shirts and or shorts. Instead everything I wear to perform in is clean well presented clothing. I look the part, while not doing the old and somewhat tiresome all black top hat and tails, I bring a flair of color to every performance, Keeping myself and the show looking young and fun.
There are literally thousands but I will name a few to give you an idea, Throughout the 33 years as a magician and variety act, Paul Antonio has been featured on tv and radio. Some clients you may have heard of include; Kiss 98.5 and 97 Rock, L'oreal USA, HBO, SPEED, Adelphia, HSBC, P&O Cruise Line, Cirque Du Soleil, Wal-Mart, IBM, Pizza Hut, Leonard Bus, Shea's Performing Arts, Uniland Development and The House of Horrors and Haunted Catacombs, just to name a few. Plus, countless corporate events, schools and libraries, as well as thousands of private events. Weddings, retirements, birthday celebrations for a 1 year old - all the way up to an 80 year old!
No, that doesnt refer to me, more my insurance policy, as a professional entertainer I carry 1 million dollar insurance (just in case) but dont panic, in 33 years I havent had a claim, nor do I want one!
Since I have had the privilege to appear around the world as far East as Scandinavia, south as far as Cape Town, North was Canada and West was right here in the USA. I guess there is nowhere i won't travel to. I am based in Buffalo NY but travel across America and Canada, I drive a hybrid and don't require 5 star hotel accommodation, so the cost to the customer is generally competitive. I am constantly travelling so I may be closer to you than you think.
If I am coming out of town I will book all accommodation myself the price will reflect this cost and all prices quoted include everything I require to get to and from the event there are NO HIDDEN FEES.
I hope that you can make a decision based on the information I have here if you need more you can always look at my website, my profile here on gigmasters or call or email me for a fast response, (usually within hours).
Remember it is hard to find a good entertainer, there are many people in the industry not all are full time, few have given their lives to the business. If you book the RIGHT person, your event is a success, you are commended. However if you book the WRONG performer you stand the chance of the event being a disappointment.
Book the RIGHT performer today while I am still available for your event. Good Clean humor and fun for any event.
I look forward to "APPEARING" at your upcoming event!
