REAL MAGIC. Do you want something SPECIAL? Not just "lite" entertainment, but an experience your guests will remember for the rest of their lives? Magician and mentalist Méliès offers a truly unforgettable odyssey? Combining artful sleight of hand and jaw-dropping mentalism, Méliès leaves audiences stunned in astonishment. "Fabulous!" "Awesome!" "You made me cry!" "Makes happiness appear out of thin air!"--these are actual comments from audiences after spending an evening with Méliès.

Though specializing in magic for intimate settings (15-40), especially adult birthday parties, anniversaries and wedding engagements, dinners, etc., Méliès is as comfortable entertaining audience of two people, or 500. A performer for all seasons and all kinds of people, Méliès has performed amazing magic for: TV producers, symphony conductors, lawyers, college professors, children with special needs, homeless women and men, accupuncturists, musicians, psychologists, and many others. Whether celebrating someone's 50th birthday party or helping someone propose marriage, Méliès creates a group experience that brings people closer together through shared awe in the Impossible. All shows are family friendly, though are intended for adults and more sophisticated kids (ages 11 and up).

Sorry, but Méliès does not do trade shows, conventions, or other large corporate events. A sliding scale fee available for nonprofits and folks with limited incomes. Note: All shows come with a money-back guarantee: Clients not delighted with the performance get 100% of their money back. However, no one has taken Méliès up on that yet.

What You Get: A professional 60-minute show featuring classic sleight of hand, mind-reading, predictions, and fun audience participation. No cheesy effects or crude humor--only mystery and miracles....

John wowed our crowd at my husban's surprise party. He is much more than a magician! We sat right in front of him and still could not figure out how he managed to do things that seemed impossible. You won't be disappointed. There was no way he could have known things about some of our guests, yet he did. Suggest that you get a firm time limit before the show. He went way over leaving us less time to socialize and dance. If magic is your thing, it won't be an issue for you.

Magician & Mentalist Méliès’s Response:

Cheryl, thanks so much for the honest feedback. I indeed regretted having gone over the scheduled time (particularly since it's not something I generally do). I'm otherwise delighted to know that your guests were "wowed" by my show and that you were properly fooled! Thanks again for hiring me--I had a great time performing at your party.

What a show!!! We had 35 young adults (17 and 18 year olds) for a 18th birthday party. They were a very talkative crowd and Magician Melies maintained everyone's attention and kept them at the edge of their seats. No one could believe what they were seeing. One after another each act was better than the last. The kids were very involved and had a great time! He was very professional to work with, arrived promptly and set up easily. We would love to work with him again. We highly recommend Magician and Mentalist Melies.

It was a FANTASTIC magic show - truly amazing. The audience was a mixture of skeptical teenagers and even more skeptical and cynical adults. Melies just dazzled them all. There were oohs and ahhas and increasingly sounds of wait! "how is that even possible"? One academic turned to me and said, "maybe it really is magic". In addition to a fabulous performance, Melies was utterly professional, funny and generous to the lone child who showed up, finding a great way to involve him in the show. All in all, can't recommend him highly enough.

Thanks so much, Leslie. The check is in the mail! I hope everything's OK over there (or OK as it can be, given Jim's brother, etc.). xxoo, John
