Frequently ASKED QUESTIONS
Are you available & how much do you charge?
These are the most often asked questions and I love it. First, my availability and fee depend on the day of the week and how far in advance the event is. Friday & Saturday nights are usually booked 1-2 months in advance, especially in December. Those are “hot” weekend nights, so book everything 3-4 months in advance if you’re planning a holiday event.
Sometimes, people call for a show 2-3 days before their event, some for an event that same day! One weekday, I got a call in the morning from a client who wanted me for a lunch event just a few hours later. I was able to jump through my superhero “phone booth” and get to the gig, much to the pleasure of the client & their guests. Of course, I charged a little more than my regular fee, which I do whenever I have to change my plans at the last minute. So it’s best if you book at least 2-3 weeks in advance.
As for my “regular” fee, it’s flexible depending on the type of event, the venue & its location, the number of guests, and the type of performance requested (strolling close-up magic, a close-up show, or stand-up show), and the length of time you’d like me to perform. My usual package for most events ranges from 1-3 hours and includes strolling close-up magic and a 20-45 minute show. The fee ranges from $900-$1500. I don’t charge by the hour but rather by the event. Most of my performances are for 2-3 hours depending on the above-mentioned factors.
Finally, I consider people’s budgets, whether set or flexible. I try to help them with some type of performance or I have a select few magicians who I can refer. Everyone needs more magic. Some of my best shows have been for people who are less advantaged and they seemed to appreciate it most.
The bottom line, book early. Decide on the date & time, the venue & its location, the type of event, the number of guests, the kind of show you’d like to see, and the times you’d like me there. Your investment of time & money will pay dividends of a fantastic experience for your guests and memories that will bring joy for years to come!
What is strolling magic?
Strolling magic is a special branch of close-up magic and an art form if performed by a highly-skilled, socially adept entertainer. Also known as walk-around magic, the magician mingles with guests, moving from group to group, performing close-up magic. The best close-up magic is achieved by sleight of hand which the audience cannot perceive and does not even suspect. Strolling magic can be astonishing to witness because the audience is so close and they are often directly involved in the experience of the effects.
I've read about magicians performing from a stationary table. Can you explain?
Shawn brings an attractive table and performs continuous 5 – 10 minute shows. Chairs can be added for longer 15 – 20 minute shows. This is a great option for large groups when the guests are moving through the event, ie. silent auctions, western cookouts, etc.
Tell me more about your living room/parlor magic show.
Shawn specializes in this type of setting with a 30 – 60 minute Magic Fun Show featuring the full range of his magic and comedy with a stunning finale.
Great for groups, less than 50 people, at homes and in intimate dining/banquet rooms. Shawn can do the show only for small groups, less than 50 people OR IT’S BEST if he combines it with the strolling magic before to meet & mingle with the guests.
Do you have a stage show for larger audiences?
Shawn takes the stage with his Magic Fun Show, 20 – 45 minutes. For after dinner shows in conjunction with awards, keynotes, etc. for up to 100 guests. Includes strolling close-up magic before dinner.
