Here’s an overview of my birthday party magic show.
I’ll share some information about the show, my background, how I set up the show and how my booking process works.
My birthday party magic show runs about 45 minutes to one hour. It’s a fast and funny combination of amazing magic, comedy, juggling and audience participation .. and a live bunny rabbit too!
The birthday child is the star of my show and gets to be my “Official Magician’s Assistant,” and help me make the magic happen.
In fact, the entire audience becomes part of the show. I encourage the children to volunteer and participate with lots of interactive magic. You’ll want to have a camera ready to catch their reactions of total amazement as they experience the many magical surprises during the performance.
The illusions I perform even fool other magicians – so they’re guaranteed to astound your guests. But a good magic show is more than tricks – it’s about entertainment. That’s why I combine stand-up comedy and improv, along with juggling and even a bit of puppetry to create a one of a kind experience.
And at the end of my act my bunny rabbit appears and does a fun magic trick to close the show. The kids are welcome to come up and pet the bunny, take pictures with him and so on.
Not Just For Kids!
Here’s what my audiences are saying:
“The adults loved you as much as the kids! Great show, very funny, and great magic! Thank you so much:)”
“Never saw anyone captivate a room of 3 year old’s to 75 year old’s like that. Really enjoyed the show … Good stuff!”
“Funny, funny, funny!!!! you kept us laughing throughout the whole show.”
“Amazing..funny..MAGICAL!!!! The kids and parents all loved you!!”
I’m Brian McGovern, a full-time professional magician with decades of experience. I grew up in Brooklyn and I’ve lived in Belle Harbor (Rockaway Beach) for over 30 years with my wife and four kids, two dogs and more than one bunny rabbit and the occasional rescue pup.
I did my first magic trick when I was six years-old (it wasn’t that good but my mom said it was). I started performing magic at parties when I was in high school and later went on to do comedy clubs, theaters and festivals.
Five Star Reviews
“Brian performed at our son’s 5th Birthday … and literally made the party magical! We had over 50 guests (27 kids!) and he captured everyone’s attention the entire time. I’ve gotten emails and texts thanking us for such a great party, all with compliments to Brian and his engaging show. Layered humor made it appropriate for all ages! Highly recommend!” -Naomi Mersky
“Brian performed his magic show for our family Adoption Celebration and was an absolute hit! The age range of the kids was 3 – 12 years old and he entertained them all as well as the adults.
The show is funny, fast paced and very inclusive. Brian was extremely professional, responsive and reliable – confirming when the event was booked as well as the day before the event.
I highly recommend him and hope we have an opportunity to hire him again and/or attend an event where he is performing! Thanks Brian!” – Kathleen Kincaide
“Brian performed at my son’s 5th birthday party and the kids and adults were thoroughly entertained. Brian has great improvisational skills, which is key when you are dealing with kids! We found him to be entertaining, funny, and witty. For us what we really liked was that he played to the kids’ developmental ages, which was helpful since all kids are different and react differently We would highly recommend Brian!” – Shilpa Kananne
The show is really easy to set up. Just give me a corner of a room where there are no distractions and enough light. I have my own table and I can be ready to start the show the minute I walk in. Nothing to plug in. Simple!
It’s best to not serve food or snacks during the show and hold off on handing out any noise makers. The kids will usually sit on the floor or the sofa a few feet away. And the magic begins.
Give your guests enough time to arrive and settle in. Many people will have my show start about 30 minutes after the party start time. My show will give the kids a fun way to celebrate the birthday and keeps them from running around the house going crazy! After my show, I’ll help transition the children to the next phase (like lunch or singing “Happy Birthday” around the cake)
