Mr. Norm with the Minnesota Wild Guy Nordy!! This cool critter even helped do a magic trick with the Minnesota Magician. This shot is at the MSP Airport during a charity event that the Delta Pilots put on.
Some question what species this mascot its and according to the Wild Website Nordy is a mix of bear and fox wearing hockey hair and a green “M” right there on his forehead. Nordy wears the jersey number 18,001.

“We have used Norm for our event for over 10 years. He does a fantastic job with everyone. I can’t recommend him highly enough!”

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.

Minnesota Magician – Magical Mia at Roseville Library


Magic show at Roseville Library

The Amazing Minnesota Magician, Magical Mia recently performed at the Roseville Library to a crowd of around 225 kids and parents. Their response to the show was wonderful. The children oohed and applauded all through the magic show.

The librarian wrote a note of recommendation for this Amazing Magic Show in Roseville, MN…

“You could tell the children were really engaged and enjoyed the show.” Alison – Roseville Library.


Minnesota Magician brings her amazing show to the Roseville Library. The kids really enjoyed the wonderful tricks of Magical Mia.


Magic Show in Twin Cities at the Roseville Library. Also seen this summer by two audiences at the Chaska Library and coming soon to Oxboro Library in Bloomington.

Magical Mia’s tricks are amazing and colorful. She entertained the audience with vanishing candles and a disappearing Ming style vase. She magically made light appear at her fingertips and also made a lot of individual pearls become a long string of pearls in a flash. It was perplexing and yet very lovely. Many came up after the show to express their delight in the magic of Mia.

Minnesota Magician Back from Performances in England

I had a wonderful time teaching two workshops and performing in the Gala show at a Convention for Magicians in England.  I met many new friends and connected with a few people I knew.

There were 240 attendees at this convention and it was sold out over 8 months ago. I taught the gathered magicians my inventions and magic routines.  My show has many unique tricks and comedy routines and other magicians want to learn my comedy techniques and how I take old magic principles and change them up for modern audiences.

I also presented my award winning act at the Gala show, and many came up after saying that their sides hurt from laughing so much.  – Hey, I’m just doing my job.

One highlight of the trip was a visit to the Tower Circus in Southport, England.  This circus has run for over 125 years in the same location. It is a one ring under an Eiffel Tower type Building.  This was built shortly after the Eiffel tower and it is a spectacular old building. My friend Arthur Pedler took me there. He performed his 10 foot unicycle act all over Europe over the years. I met Arthur 25 years ago on one of his tours to the U.S. He is a delightful fellow and I enjoyed real English tea and meals with the sweet hospitality at the home of Arthur and his wife Val.


The Tower Circus in Southport, England rests at the bottom of this Eiffel style tower.


If you need a comedy magic show in Minneapolis or a family magician in St. Paul, please call.  I also perform all over MN.  Last weekend I was near Brainerd for a High School Performance for the Graduation event. And just before I went to England I entertained a fun group North of Duluth for their High School Prom Lock in.  I also performed at a Resort and a Bat Mitzvah and two Graduations events in Wisconsin two weekends ago.  I love to hear the laughter that magic brings to all ages. High Schools or Business and family shows.



Mookey and his brother are the principal Ringmasters in the wonderful Tower Circus.

The year ahead has 4 more conventions of entertainers that I will teach and perform at.  The other magicians enjoy seeing comedy and they work hard entertaining so on their time off they deserve some laughs too.
