Making Magic in Minnesota is Fun!


At Calvary Church in the Arden Hills location for a family night.

It is fun to be a Minnesota Magician. I get to visit so many neat places and meet so many great people.


Magic shows are fun for cub scouts. I had several Blue and Gold Banquets this month. The scouts work so hard to earn all their advancements and badges. This is the ball that floats during the show. It gets them wondering.


Here is some goofing around at a show at a school. It is “I Love to Read Month” and I am quite busy with those shows at schools. Next week I have 7 “Magic of Reading” shows booked at schools in MN. They enjoy having a fun Magic show and also a Minnesota Author visit.

This was a very fun audience at a school in St. Paul. I love to hear the laughter and encourage children to get excited about reading and doing their best in school.

I do lots of programs for  schools, company picnics, family parties and church family nights (and also V.B.S.)

Its Magic and Fun for everyone!

Another Fun Event with Pilots for Kids

It was fun to once again be a part of the Pilots for Kids event at the MSP airport. The crew put on a fabulous event. They decorate a terminal and invite underprivileged children to come and visit the airport, have games and a great lunch enjoy live music and a magic show – hey that’s me!

The children next board a plane and take a fantasy flight to the North Pole and meet Santa. Many mascots form the Vikings, Wild, Gophers and the Twins make appearances and the kids are thrilled.


This is my 8th or 9th time working with the Pilots for Kids program and it is a joy to be a part of the fun.

Later that night I had a very fun show for an all adult crowd for a corporate holiday party. I enjoy bringing laughs to people of all ages. If you are looking for a magician in Minneapolis or the Twin Cities please check out…


Yay Wild!!!


Go Twins!!!

I hope you have a Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas, and a great new year!

Magic is fun for all types of events. I love to bring comedy and magic shows to children and families.


It is fun to be a Minneapolis Magician.


February – I Love to Read Month

I love to read and I learned most of my magic tricks from reading books.  I have over 400 books in my library on the the art of magic.

I worked several schools already this month to promote reading and literacy with my  motivational reading magic show.  I have toured this program throughout the country over the past 29 years motivating young readers to get excited about the library.


A recent show was enjoyed by 5th graders and one of the teachers sent me this. It expands on the value of reading to young children.

“Whenever an adult reads to a child, three important things are happening simultaneously and painlessly: (1) a pleasure connection is being made between child and book, (2) both parent and child are learning something from the book they’re sharing, and (3) the adult is pouring sounds and syllables called words into the child’s ear.”

– Jim Trelease, The Read Aloud Handbook


After my show I also read from my new novel – sort of a Nancy Drew, Mystery type story with comedy added throughout.  It was fun to write. She said the 5th graders were very enthusiastic about the story.

Birthday Party Magic and Fun

Just received a nice comment on the Birthday Party Magic Show.  I love being a magician in Minnesota.

“Hi Norm — wanted to say thank you again for hosting the birthday party for my 14 year old. Those creatures are hard to entertain and you did it with zest! Lillian was very thrilled to have you at her party. The grown-ups had a few giggles as well. Thanks again!” — L Fix  – Edina

Wow! Thanks for the nice comment about the magic and comedy show. You have a very sophisticated and courteous daughter and her friends were all very nice. I love to make people laugh and your group of 14 year-olds was a delight. I loved seeing the expressions of amazement as the tricks unfolded. They were a very sweet bunch and I wish you and your family a great year ahead.

This show was held in the banquet room of the Diavonni’s Pizza place in Edina, MN.  Its a great place to have a party.

I enjoy bringing comedy and magic shows to birthday parties.  Last weekend the magic show was right in Minneapolis and a 5 year old and the father wrote:

“We had Norm perform for our son’s 5th birthday party. He was great. The kids, as well as the adults, loved it. Everyone in the audience laughed and had a great time.” Mike B. – Minneapolis

I enjoy being a Minneapolis Magician. It is fun to bring comedy to all kinds of events from birthdays to high schools to corporate functions.

Minneapolis Magician Entertains in New York City

March 2011 – I just returned from teaching and performing at the convention of comedy entertainers in New York City.  It was a blast to hang out with my friends from Canada, Japan, Puerto Rico and England. I also met many new friends.

I was M.C. for three of the convention events and that went very well with the comedy bits and crazy stunts I put together.  This convention is a creative playground and I really have a blast dreaming up comedy routines and then seeing how they work out under the stage lights. I teach classes on comedy writing and theatrical techniques as well as classes on my original magic tricks and routines.

In February I was in Mystic CT for a convention of entertainers and had a blast as their featured performer for their convention banquet. I love to entertain my peers and bring them some unique comedy magic entertainment.

I would love to bring comedy entertainment to your banquet or event. I enjoy being a Minneapolis Magician. More at:
