Whether you’re holding a fundraiser or planning your wedding, entertainment is mandatory. Not only does it help you appreciate the little moments in life, it helps set the mood and take the stress away!
But it can be difficult deciding on the form of entertainment. While live bands and a mini circus are becoming popular, the idea gets bland and boring after some time. In order to keep your guests happy and engaged, it’s important to find a unique form of entertainment.
Not sure if you should hire one?
Take a look at the most popular close-up magic myths and which ones you should avoid:
Magic is Only About Tricking Others
This is simply not true. While it is true that magic tricks are used to create an illusion, when magicians perform, their goal is to engage their audience and provide a platform for entertainment.
There is nothing more satisfying than see the smiles and laughter on people’s faces and knowing they are enjoying themselves.
Magic is Just for Children
Some magic tricks are specifically for children and birthday parties. However, close-up magicians focus mainly on adults and events such as corporate events, office parties, fundraisers and weddings.
They use tricks that would not interest children because their performances are centred around events where the target audience includes adults.
Magicians Wear Silly Costumes
The magicians we see on television are the ones who cater to children.
On the other hand, close-up magicians dress smartly, neatly and in formal attire—depending on the occasion. This is because they are mainly found at formal events. The aura here is of mystery and intrigue. It’s about creating an illusion.
Magic is Only a Hobby
For some people, magic is a hobby; but for close-up magicians, it is their career. Not only are close-up magicians professionals, they have vast amounts of experience and performing for hundreds of people at hundreds of events.
Hiring a professional close-up magician can turn your event into a success. Whether you’re looking for light entertainment or a hearty laughter, you can make your event magical with just the right dash of magic!
