Here is the Amazing and Fun – Reading Magic Show at Chaska Library in July. Over 200 were in attendance for this fun program to encourage reading.

Waconia Library August 2 2019 (153)

Annalisa Bragg gave this 5 star review on Google after seeing the Reading Magic Show at Watertown Library.

“Saw Magic Norm at the Watertown library program – he was great! Norm provided a magical performance with:
●fun staging,
●clean and appropriate jokes (even for adults),
●a genuine interest in kids and literacy (he’s published many books on magic that are all user friendly and available at the library )
●an interest in engaging kids in magic, both in his show and helping them learn magic on their own
●professionalism, generosity and kindness.
Thanks, Norm, for a wonderful, magical experience!”

Norm says, “It is so fun to hear the laughter at the shows and I love to encourage children to read.”

 

Here is the Minnesota Magician delighting a crowd of over 150 children at the Waconia Library. Its a fun filled magic show for families that has wacky humor and amazing tricks.

It is so fun to bring laughs and magic shows to Cub Scout Groups.  In the past 2 months I have presented 8 programs for scout groups.

The parents and siblings have as much fun as the scouts.  Here is a recent comment on Google Maps about this Magician in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Magician Entertains Families in Arden Hills

A week ago I enjoyed bringing some cmedy magic to the families of All Saints Church.

It was a very fun show and al ages were laughing an having fun.  The Church office director and event planner wrote this very nice nonte about the family entertainment in Minnesota.

“Norm did a fantastic job at our church social event.  He was very professional, punctual, and clear in all his business dealings.  He was a pleasure to have – his magic tricks delighted the kids and the adults in the room and his joy was authentic both on and off-stage.  I couldn’t have been more pleased and hope to have him back for more and more events!  As a matter of fact, I’ve recommended him to a family member of mine who owns an entertainment venue.”
God bless you; please write me again if your check does not arrive.  Our bookkeeper was working on it last weekend.
In Christ,
Jacob Flaherty and the Church of All Saints

Minnesota Magician Entertains in Ukraine

IMG_3602Saxophonist extraordinaire and comedian Slava on left alongside Minneapolis Magician Mr. Norm. To the right is Sasha in purple the comic actor, pick pocket and magician. Mr. Norm performed with these two fun and funny gentleman from Ukraine on his visit there a few months back.

We did 35 family shows in two weeks across the lovely and cool land at schools, community centers, churches and theaters.  I did about 30-405 minutes and these two comic performers did about 20-25 minutes… It was great to entertain alongside these two fun fellows.  In other cities another funny gentleman named Alexey replaces Slava and did the sets.  He was a laugh riot too!

It is fun to see how various audiences responded to the comedy magic shows.  The addition of music, comic skits, dance and pick pocketing by these two really was a splash.

Keynote Speaker at Day Long Conference in Ukraine

Mr Norm also taught along side them at a conference for youth leaders with over 140 in attendance.  These were other entertainers and performers who wanted to sharpen their skills and discover new methods and ideas for performance.  Mr. Norm did 3 classes – one on comedy magic, another on Balloon twisting and skits with balloons. and the other on comedy skit writing and development.

Comedy entertainer – Mr Norm was also the keynote speaker for the day long conference and presented an hour and half workshop that motivated and encouraged the guests to strive for creative skills that they can develop.  This magical comedian also shared many of his ideas on comedy writing and performance techniques.

The way to bring entertainment is to add lots of comedy and that is found in the character and the situations the actor is put into.

Creativity in performance art derives from finding ways to take old ideas and make them new with a twist or change or adaptation.  Creativity is something we all have and the goal is to find ways to develop that creativity and sharpen it.

Magic shows are fun for audiences in Minnesota and Wisconsin. 

As a comedy performer it is fun to share the things I have developed over the years that others can add to their acts.  I also like to teach comedy techniques and methods that will help entertainers bring smiles t their audiences and help their presentations become funnier and sharper.

You can bring comedy entertainment to your special events across the Twin Cities with magician Mr. Norm  – Magician-Minneapolis.com

Corporate Parties and family events are a wonderful place to add some comic fun to the meetings and events.  All ages enjoy the unique clean comedy and magic entertainment.

Magic is fun!!

Doing a magic show for family events is so fun as I get to enjoy the looks on the parent’s faces as their children become the starts of the show.  every show is unique as the children who participate.  The little ones are so cute and yet seeing the amazement in the eyes of the 5th and 6th graders is priceless.

I feel a strong magic show needs two important factors:

#1 – Amazing Tricks!   Astounding presentations that are full of surprises.

#2 – Entertainment with Comedy.  It’s got to be funny and full of humor to make it entertaining.

I have crafted a show that is filled with many many tricks and lots of laughs.  I do two to three times the magical tricks in a show than an average magician.  But people of all ages want to see lots of tricks at a magic show and also need the comedy and entertainment factor to make it memorable and fun.

IMG_0210

This crazy fun job has taken me to various lands including in 2018 – Ukraine, South Africa, Germany and Egypt!  Cool!  I am so thankful and it is fun to hear the laughter that comedy entertainment brings.

Minnesota Magicians travel to bring entertainment across the Globe.  This is after a very fun program I presented in Kenya a few years back. For these tours of High Schools, colleges and elementary schools I present fun magic with a message of community service, working hard in school and being kind to one another.  But with lots of comedy and audience involvement.

If you are planning an event in MN please consider adding a Minnesota Magician.

County Fair Magic Show in Minnesota

Ramsey fair fun july 22 2018 (53)

Comedy Magic adds fun to the fair.  The children giggle, the teens are amazed and the parents love seeing the kids get into the show and get involved. Magic is fun for everyone.

We have entertained at 3 county fairs so far this summer, and now today we are heading out to do 5 day run of 3 shows a day at another Minnesota County fair.

It is so fun to see the smiles and hear the laughs.  The fair board members commented that it was a wonderful show.

The crowds were bigger than they had for this type of show in previous years.  So I am glad the fair-goers enjoyed it.

Please click this magic website for more on the Minnesota country fair magician.
