What To Look For In A Toronto Magician


It’s crunch time: you’re planning your next event, but you’re running out of time to find the right entertainer. You’ve considered hiring a magician, but you aren’t sure what to look for, exactly.

You want a magician who will:

  • Entertain audiences of all ages

  • Impress the skeptics

  • Leave your guests in awe

So, how do you find the right person for the job? We’ve got a few ideas for you. Here’s what you should look for in a Toronto magician:


Stage Presence

Whether your event takes place over Zoom or at an actual live venue, the performer’s persona is key. Are they confident? Comedic? Or captivatingly serious?


Depending on what type of event you’re hosting, a certain tone may work better. At a corporate event, you might want a magician who’s humorous, but makes jokes with clean comedy. At a family gathering with young children, an energetic magician with plenty of charisma will keep the little ones entertained.


Originality

You’ve probably been to a few magic shows in your life before, and so have your guests. If you’ve seen one uninspired card trick, you’ve seen them all.


You aren’t looking for a run-of-the-mill Toronto magician—you want a show-stopper. A performer who brings something new to the table.


What unique tricks do they have up their sleeves? Do they tell jokes that make the audience laugh? What about musical performances that incorporate magic into the song? Look for a magician who offers something a cut above the rest.


Storytelling

Part of the magic is the mechanics of a trick. The other part is how the magician presents it. What story do they tell as they put together another amazing trick?


Storytelling is not only entertaining; it’s a clever form of misdirection. The audience is captivated by a performer’s words and gestures; their eyes lose track of the trick itself. A magician can pace the story so that the audience focuses back on the trick when the time is right.


When storytelling is done right, a magic show doesn’t feel like a collection of tricks; it feels like one cohesive performance. A magician who’s also an adept storyteller will keep audiences captivated throughout the evening.


Experience

We’ll let you in on a little secret: magic has a lot to do with skill. It’s a talent you hone through years of performing.


With more experience, magicians acquire more confidence and agility with their tricks. They find new and clever ways to disguise the inner workings of their mind-bending magic.

You can easily spot the difference between a new magician (who isn’t quite comfortable pulling off complex tricks) and one with years of experience (who makes magic seem effortless).


Highly skilled magicians perform tricks that make you wonder years later: how did they do it? They make the impossible seem possible. An experienced magician knows how to dazzle and mystify their audience.
