Magician in Minneapolis

Ethan is a very fun young guy magician who stopped by the MN State Fair to say hello.  He is slick with the cards and we enjoyed doing a few tricks for each other and talking magic between the shows.  He will have good success as a magician as he cares about entertaining and not just impressing.  I look forward to our next visit.

Magic Tricks and fun with the Amazing Comedy Stamp Collecting Trick.

The kids like the stamp collecting trick… Each page of the book is shown empty and then the children each grab a stamp from some place around the world.  They all participate as they toss the invisible stamps toward the book. Suddenly it is filled with colorful stamps as if by Magic.  The kids are the stars of the show as they make the magic happen.

Magic is fun.

You can bring magic and comedy to your parties and special events in The Twin Cities and around Minnesota.

The Comedy Magic Never Stops

Its that Minnesota Magician at the Menomonie Library bringing fun to all ages.  It is fun to see the adults crack up at the antics as much as the kids to. Everyone needs a laugh break once in a while.


Here is that Minnesota Magician – Mr. Norm bringing some comedy with the Amazing Rope Illusion from India.  This is always a crowd pleasing magic trick and gets them giggling and having fun.  

This fun show encourages children to get excited about going to the library and reading during the summer. Kids who read during the summer are ready for school when it starts in the Fall.

Stevens County Fair Magician 2016

Magic shows are fun and the families at the Stevens County Fair had a blast with the comedy magician from Minnesota, Mr. Norm.

If your group is planning a special event for families, please consider the comedy and mystery that Mr. Norm brings.  He is an original creative artist with many magic inventions that provide surprises and gasps of wonder.

A magic show should have amazing tricks that and it should also have the element of comedy that gets the audiences laughing and keeps them entertained throughout.

Learn more at:  This is the spot for entertainment in Minnesota for county fairs, festivals, churches and company parties.

All ages enjoy Minnesota Magician

It is fun to be a Magician in Minnesota. Recently many high schools have had their graduation lock in events.  It has been a lot of fun.


Some of the crowd at the Apple Valley High School – a great bunch of students.

The Chair of the Apple Valley Lock in wrote “Thanks for a great show!! It was a huge hit.” 

The night before over at Coon Rapids High School Kim the Co – Chair wrote a nice note that said: “Norm was amazing! We have had him come to our senior all night party for the last 3 years and each year it has been very entertaining. Thank You!”  


I love to bring laughter and amazement to high school students and I also enjoy doing corporate parties for adults and family parties for all ages.

Magic shows are fun and my programs have taken me to all fifty stages over the past 28 years.  Last year I performed at a convention in Hong Kong and the year before in England and India.  However I mostly do my comedy programs within 2 hours of the Twin cities.  It is fun to hear the reaction and every show is different because the volunteers from the audience make it special and unique.
