Today was all about bubble show decluttering! For many years I have been doing bubble shows. Often I will pick up a few fun new bubble tools to test out, which all will inevitably come with a bottle of a tiny bottle of bubble solution. All these little bottles just go straight in a box […]

When some people think of a magician, the image that immediately comes to mind is that of a lanky teenage kid in an ill-fitting top hat doing tricks for kids. Although I myself have seen a number of these performers, I have also seen rooms of adults gasping in wonder at the spectacular magical talents […]

If you are looking to make a big splash at your next event, you want something high energy, dramatic and fun. Depending on your theme a fire show might be the perfect answer – but where do you start? I am a fire performer with fifteen years of experience in the industry, and I’m here […]

I just love performing walk around magic at events. Magic is a universal language that brings everyone together with laughter and astonishment. People are so intrigued and willing to be amazed. I feel so lucky that this is my job. Book a walk Around Magician in Calgary, Banff or Edmonton.

Today was all about bubble show decluttering!
For many years I have been doing bubble shows. Often I will pick up a few fun new bubble tools to test out, which all will inevitably come with a bottle of a tiny bottle of bubble solution. All these little bottles just go straight in a box in the storage room, never to be seen again; until today when I took them ALL out, sorted them into the two basic types (traditional and touchable bubbles), consolidated them into larger containers and washed and recycled the remains.

This has me thinging, what else can I consolodate into fewer bottles?

Program directors are always looking for exciting new in-school programs that will appeal to the whole school, whether it’s K-6, Jr High or High School while fitting in their often limited budget. I really think that circus workshops can be one excellent solution. Just yesterday Cynthia Engelbracht, Programing Coordinator at WO Mitchell School commented that our program was the “Best residency ever!! WO Mitchell loves you 🙂 Thank you!”

Our workshops run as a 30-minute, one hour (1) or two hours (2) program. Students will enjoy a fast paced exciting program that includes a show with demos and a history of each prop, a warm-up activity, hands-on coaching, a cool-down activity, and optional activity sheets that can be left with teachers.

We focus on active learning through play, exploring the idea of difficult challenges and coping strategies around small failures in a safe space. Children explore a wide variety of circus skills while building dexterity, creativity, hand-eye coordination, and confidence. Workshops include all circus props, one coach, and a small sound system for fun circus music to set the mood.

Kids Circus Playshops

Website: KidsCircusWorkshops.com
Duration: 1hr – 6hrs
Age Range: Recommended ages 4–12 / Adult progams available

Ideal ratios are 1 coach for every 15–20 children. Having additional coaches also allows us to incorporate more games and other additional activities.

When some people think of a magician, the image that immediately comes to mind is that of a lanky teenage kid in an ill-fitting top hat doing tricks for kids. Although I myself have seen a number of these performers, I have also seen rooms of adults gasping in wonder at the spectacular magical talents of quality corporate magicians who create a tone that is ideally targeted to adult audiences.

Are Magic Shows a Good fit for Adults?

Well, yes and no. The distinction is that Adult magic shows are a good fit for an adult event. However, it can be difficult to know whether you are booking the correct style of performance. Magic shows can be a wonderful mix of comedy, audience participation, and amazing magical acts, if the performer is well suited to their audience. A good magician who caters to adults will create a show specifically designed to thrill your crowd with impossible feats and strong visual moments of magic. For corporate events, these types of magicians are often a better fit than other forms of entertainment because they play big even on a small stage, and they tend to be incredibly flexible even in the changing circumstances of a live event.

Tips for Booking a Good Magician

Ideally, you want to start with recommendations from friends or family members who have hired a magician they liked in the past. If no one has a recommendation, an entertainment agency will be able to offer you a list of qualified performers who will best fit your needs. As a last resort you can use google, but be warned. It’s easy to put together a professional looking website with stock images these days, so make sure your entertainer has good videos and nice photos of their show being performed in front of crowds of happy adult crowds.

Hopefully, this information will help you decide if you should consider a corporate or comedy magician for your next event, I think you’ll be happy you did.
