It is fun to bring magic and comedy to special events across Minnesota. Recently I did a program for All Saints Church in the Northern Suburbs of Minneapolis.  All ages were engaged with the Comedy & Magic Show.  It was fun to see the adults laughing and amazed along with the children.

Cub Scout Magician in Minneapolis

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.

Thomas G. ★ (a week ago)

“Our Cub Scout event was a huge success thanks to Magic Norm! The kids were enthralled not only by his magic but by his engaging personality! He is really funny and is really good at impromptu comedy. Entertaining for both the kids and the parents. I would highly recommend Magic Norm for your next event.”

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

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.

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.

Minnesota Magician at Taiwan Festival

It was so much fun to bring the comedy magic to many audiences in Taiwan last year..

One day was fill with classes I taught on comedy techniques. Many entertainers from Taiwan came to study comedy techniques. As a Minneapolis Magician, I am invited to perform in lots of fun places.

At one evening party for the performers I did some card tricks and I think the trick actually worked.  In this trick I teach someone how to do a trick and with a wave of their hand the card mysteriously rises and quite often it gets a gasp or a laugh.  Magic is too much fun.

Then I enjoyed being a part of the Street Festival – sort of like the Renaissance Festival in Minneapolis, only this was downtown in the center of the city in the beautiful park.  The families in the audience laughed and roar their approval.  Here was the party that the mayor of Taipei hosted to celebrate the festival.  I am the guy in the back holding up the cel phone.

The guy on the far right is my friend Mr Drew from Thailand. He a very talented juggler and comic.  The two of us did an advance performance two different days at the largest Shopping Mall in the area.

We taught several classes together and then on the right everyone got a certificate for the training received in comedy and magic.

The following photo is my main guide who help with translation and she is also good at selfies and she sent this to me after.

We should be a rock band… but we are comedians and jugglers and entertainers.  But if we were a Jazz band it would be so fun as these guys were so fun to hang around with during the five day festival.  Great friends and I wish I could be hanging with them again right now.  The beautiful island of Taiwan is a gem of the Pacific.  Great food, warm people and wonderful beautiful sights.

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.
