Magic for Annual Banquet

The Ideal Credit Union just changed their name from Postal Credit Union. I was happy to be invited to their annual banquet for the members.

Here is what the President of the Credit Union wrote:

“Norm is a talented entertainer for audiences of all ages. He engages the crowd and invites them to be part of the show. Norm was a huge hit at our 2014 Annual Meeting, and we look forward to having him back at future events.”

The Ideal Credit Union has a great staff with friendly people who help people with their financial needs.  I had a car loan through this group years ago and they were great to work with.  I think they hired me for this event because someone here saw me perform some place else.

I present these blogs not to brag, but to show that when you hire me to present comedy and magic for your banquet you will receive a high quality program and your guests will be glad they came.

There are many magicians in Minnesota and I am honored when groups select me. I strive to do my best to make events memorable, fun and unique.  I enjoy hearing the laughter that the comedy and magic show brings.

Have a wonderful day and I hope the best for you.

Happy Birthday America

I get to work at many festivals and celebrations with my magic show.  4th of July is always a time to celebrate. Many magicians in Minnesota are busy doing comedy and magic shows today.  I am all set to head out in a few minutes to bring a magic show to St. Paul, MN.

Magic shows are fun for birthday parties and company picnics.

Enjoy the 4th of July and let us be thankful for our freedom and those who work to keep us free.

Magic at Mayo Civic Center & Auditorium

Rochester is a beautiful city and I really enjoy the nice people there. I have enjoyed presenting magic for guests at the Mayo Civic Center & Auditorium. One recent Christmas I was part of the Rochester Festival of Trees. This is a fabulous event where people get to see exquisitely decorated trees and even bid on them for charity.  Many Rochester businesses participate in decorating the trees. I strolled and presented magic for the people at this festive event.

Rochester, MN is a great place to present magic. The Olmstead County Fair is in Rochester, MN. I have entertained the crowds two different years at the Olmstead County Fair.  Many of the schools and churches have brought the comedy magic show to their events.  The Rochester Country Club and golf course has brought my magic entertainment in several times for their family events.  I have presented magic for several Mayo events including an event for their retirees that also included magicians Suzanne and Bill Arnold.  The transplant unit has also invited me to entertain their guests at their annual summer picnic in Rochester.

I have enjoyed performing at the Apache Mall more than 8 times over the years. Once for the Ronald McDonald House Fund Raiser and several times at Christmas. Once I produced the Mall Santa from a huge Christmas Story Book.

Many Magicians in Minnesota have made Rochester their home including corporate magicians Lee Knight, Bob Miller and Raj Majok.

Magicians in Minnesota

Magicians in Minnesota are looking for ways to add comedy and amazing magic to their shows. They study at workshops and conventions.

Jeff BcBride has a fabulous school in Las Vegas. There are upcoming conventions in the Midwest that will offer many magicians an opportunity to study and grow in their field.


I wil be speaking at a convention in New York City soon on the topic of comedy magic and close up magic as well as thinking theatrically. The theater class is about making entrances and exits, using microphones properly and planning a show. I also talk on how to block the show and make stage movements meaningful and uncluttered. Another important topic I cover is how to add inflection and style to grab attention and focus it so the magic show is improved.


I have taught on these topics at conventions and workshops in Calgary and Winnipeg, Canada, in Orlando, Denver, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Daytona Beach and Houston. I have also taught my magic and comedy in Minneapolis at 4 different Magician conventions. It is very fun and rewarding.


Magicians in Minnesota like to improve their skills and I love to learn new ideas and methods when I attend these gatherings.


If you need a fun magic show there are many good magicians in Minnesota.
