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.

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.

Rogers Library Children’s Librarian Abike and Mr. Norm with a few of his books that can be found at the library.

It was fun to bring the comedy and magic show to the families in Roger’s, MN.  This Hennepin County Library has had the magic show by Mr. Norm at least 6 times over the past 20 years. I enjoy hearing the laughter. It is exciting to get kids motivated to read.

                                “Norm did a wonderful job presenting at our library.

                                His program was informative, interactive, engaging and entertaining.

                                Our patrons really enjoyed his show and gave us positive comments.

                                We can’t wait to have you back for another visit.                         

                Thank you once again Norm for coming and presenting at the Rogers  Library.”                                                           – Abike Eyo – Children’s Librarian

 

My goal is to promote reading and get kids excited about going to the library. This has been my purpose for nearly 30 years as I have crossed the country bringing the motivational magic show to students in schools and families at libraries.

I have presented programs and thousands of schools in all 50 states. 

It is fun to see my best selling books at the libraries too.

Have fun reading this summer.
