Party Planning Tips

Birthday Magician Brent will give you the best show possible but these are some tips for having the best Magic Show possible.

HIRE A PROFESSIONAL and stay OFF websites like KIJIJI. – Spend a bit more and get someone who knows how to entertain kids. You pay for what your get !!

PLEASE No food or drink during the magic show

When it’s possible (ie: the show isn’t at a banquet or similar event) please be sure there is no food or drinks served or available during the magic show

  1. Food and drinks makes it difficult for the children to focus on, and often impossible to interact i, the show. Big laughs — which is what my show aims for — and snack food also presents a real choking hazard and a drink always spills stopping the show in its tracks

Sticky fingers also limits their ability to be my helper during the act and the noise and distraction only diminishes the magic happening in y show.

Children should sit on the floor

The children should be seated on the floor in several narrow rows than one long row. This has proven to be the best arrangement for keeping all the children focused on the show and having a great time. The Birthday Person should be seating in the front row in the center.

All Adults to be on their best behavior for the show, as well!

Please remind the other adults that even light chatter — or loud chatter in an adjoining room — can distract the children from being able to enjoy the show. The adults will have a wonderful time if they decide to watch the show along with the kids. There must be at least one Adult in the room at all times once Birthday Magician Brent arrives.

The time on the confirmation is the show start time

I’m Calgary’s Birthday Party Magician and I have numerous shows each day so It’s always a good idea to let guests know there will be a magic show at the party on the invitations, to ensure they will be on time. I always try to accommodate unexpected situations, but my performing schedule for the day does not always allow for delayed show times.

It’s alright for the kids to make some noise!

Some parents feel it’s best to ask the kids to quiet down whenever they speak during the show, but remember that the show is specifically designed to get all the kids involved.  I encourage the kids to call out, scream, laugh and point at all times in my show

The only time I ask that an adult step in is if one of the guest’s actions begin to distract others, or are completely out of context from the show.

Photographing the Show

Either photo’s or Video are encouraged during my show as long as its not a disruption to my show. Photos of the kids’ faces during the show are priceless, but please take photos and video from behind the kids or off to the sides of the performing space. Being in their line of vision, especially in front of or behind the performer, will ultimately destroy the wonderful moment you’re trying to capture!

Photography and Social Media

Please do take photos and videos during the show. If you post photographs to social media though, please use the #BirthdayMagicianBrent, add @BirthdayMagicianBrent to the comments, or simply “”.
