"Why Should I Book YOU To
Entertain My Guests?"
If you’ve searched for magicians on Google, you’ll know that there are a lot of different ones out there. There’s probably 18 living on your street!
How are you meant to know the good from the bad? After all, if you’ve never booked a magician before, and you don’t know anyone that has, what are you meant to do?
“Are there formal qualifications or tests magicians have to pass, so I can see how they rank alongside other magicians?” Sadly, not.
“Does a slick looking website guarantee that the magician will be able to entertain my family?” No.
“So, what am I meant to do if I want to book a magician to wow and entertain my guests. My party is this weekend and I’M STRESSED OUT OF MY MIND!!!“
Our guests were in a combination of hysterics and bewilderment throughout the performance, one of them said “what ever you paid for that guy…it was worth it!”.
While I can’t give you a definitive answer to finding the perfect magician for you, I can tell you more about me, my magic what is unique to me. If some of these resonate with you, there’s a good chance that I’ll be able to do wonders for you and your guests!
1. I’m one of the very few FULL TIME magicians in the UK. This is how I make a living. I don’t work at Lidl on weekends or anything like that.
Performing magic is all I do. I’m not “dabbling”; performing just for “fun” at a few gigs every now and then.
I’m playing for keeps. 🙂
"Everyone from my 4 year old nephew to my 90 year old grandfather thoroughly enjoyed your time with us. I didn’t realise you were also a comedian! My brother and I provide the best barbecue ever, and all everyone wants to talk about is YOU!"
2. I can prove that I’m pretty good. Not only have I got lots of testimonials from happy clients, I also work for some of the biggest companies in the world, including: SKY, Pepsi, AstraZeneca, William Hill, Paddy Power, Tesco, Bae and Unilever. They trust me when they are looking to create an event that will blow their guests away. You can too.
3. I’m a full member of Equity, and, to be a full member, you have to be a PROFESSIONAL entertainer – they don’t let just anyone in you know!
4. I have Public Liability Insurance for upto £10m, so if the venue manager is getting antsy, worried about the damage a few card tricks may do, don’t worry; I’m covered and more than happy to provide a copy of my certificate to put your mind (and theirs) at rest.
He was hugely entertaining, with a real sense of mischievous fun! With howls of laughter and gasps of magical amazement – our guests loved him!
5. I always use booking contracts and issue invoices. I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve had a phone call from a bride or corporate client who’s been let down at the last minute by a cheap, local magician who ditched them because they got a “better” (higher paying) booking. My job, aside from amazing your guests, is to give you peace of mind, knowing that you’ve booked a quality entertainer who will actually be where he said he will be!
6. I’m not just a magician; I’m also a comedian. And I’m not just a comedian; I’m an AWARD WINNING comedian. I don’t just perform magic – I get your guests laughing and having a great time. If you have a look at my testimonials, you’ll see how they focus on guests laughing and being entertained, rather than just fooled with magic. It’s these moments of unique interaction – the banter I have with your guests – that will make the entertainment memorable!
7. You know that “difficult guest“? The one you’re worried about? The one you’re ALWAYS worried about? Don’t be; I love difficult guests. There’s an “Uncle Alan” at every party. You know, the funny one that likes to take the mickey; the one you’re always apologising for to strangers? I LOVE UNCLE ALAN’S! (not in a weird way); they are so much fun to entertain. I’d much rather have a room full of Uncle Alan’s than a quiet refined tea party with muted, but polite applause.
However rowdy your guests are, don’t worry; I’ll be fine, I’ll entertain them and I’ll love them. 🙂
He kept in touch regularly during the booking process and I was 100% confident that he was the right choice before I’d even met him!
8. I bought the website www.NotDynamo.com, so I must be really clever, super talented and awesomely creative, right?
9. I’ve been a professional magician for over 9 years; I know what I’m doing. I’ve spent years honing and refining my act so that I can work totally from my pockets, meaning that it doesn’t matter if your guests are sat round a table, stood in the garden or all crammed into the downstairs toilet; I can still entertain the heck out of them no matter what.
No matter where your guests are, I’ll get them laughing and having fun!
10. Rather than a flat rate, “these are the fixed services that I offer” type of arrangement, I prefer to work with you, finding out all about you, your party and your guests, to see how I design the entertainment to best suits your needs.
It’s not a one size fits all approach, because every event is different, so tell me as much as you can about your party and I’ll see how I can best help create an amazing (as well as stress free) experience for your guests.
If I genuinely don’t think I’m the best person for the job, I’ll say so (and I’ll also point you in the direction of the magician I think IS the right person for you!).
