Top Magician related questions

What kinds of occasions and events do magicians perform at?

You can hire a magician to perform at any type of special occasion. From children’s birthday parties through to private functions and corporate events, your magician can tailor their show for any audience.

Why hire a magician over other types of party entertainment?

Magicians have broad appeal - they’re flexible to set up in different locations and most shows are suitable for all ages. Most importantly, magicians can really help set the vibe in a way that no other party entertainment, bringing a sense of wonder and awe to your party.

What are some common magic tricks performed by magicians?

A magician always has something up their sleeve! From card tricks, levitation, vanishing acts, and pulling obscure items from a seemingly bottomless hat - their unique magic tricks and illusions will keep everyone guessing.

Are there different types of magicians with unique specialties?

Every magician has their favourite tricks and the entertainment they provide is unique. They could include a stand-up comedy routine, act out a puppet show, or dress-up as a favourite character. Some also work with other entertainers like face painters for an extra special party. Magicians that specialise in corporate events will have honed their skills to become master illusionists, making every trick look like magic.

How long do most magicians perform for at events?

Most magical shows last for about 45-60 minutes. Your magician may stay at your party longer if you’ve booked them as a roving entertainer or if they’re offering additional services like balloon animals or disco parties.

How much does it cost to hire a magician?

You can expect to pay from $150-$250 when you hire a magician on Airtasker. The price may vary depending on the duration of the show and whether your booking includes any extras, like balloons or party bags.

What does a magic show package include?

Magicians weave storytelling into their shows to bring the audience on an exciting journey into the world of magic. From kids’ magicians to full scale illusionists, you can book a magician that’s perfect for your event on Airtasker. Here’s how you can work with your magician:

Children’s parties

When you hire a magician for a birthday party, they’ll arrive with all the equipment they need to perform their show. Usually, the show will begin 30 minutes after the guests arrive. Your magician may use a variety of acts, like magic tricks, puppets, balloon animals, and may even come dressed as your child’s favourite superhero. Your magician will work to keep the kids entertained so you can relax, making your child’s birthday one they’ll never forget. Just check that your magician has a blue-card to ensure your party is safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Corporate events and fundraisers

Looking for something different for your fundraising event, corporate gala, or team-building day? Book a magician for a unique style of entertainment. They’ll perform a stage show including disappearing acts, advanced magic tricks, and astonishing illusions that will keep even the most sceptical partygoers captivated. 

Roving entertainment

Many magicians offer a roving entertainment option where they can perform magic tricks on the go. This is the perfect for events like stand-up functions or in a location with limit space for a stage. Your magician will encourage audience interaction and participation by moving amongst the crowd and responding to their questions and requests. A roving magician makes the perfect ice-breaker for your guests and will get everyone in the mood for a fun celebration.

Interactive magical shows

All good magical shows are interactive, with a healthy dose of audience participation. No matter the format of your function or event, an experienced magician will read their audience and make small tweaks to their show to ensure an enjoyable and memorable experience for all guests.
