For years, Americans have largely and unfairly dismissed professional magicians as one trick ponies. Tricks like pulling a white rabbit out of a top hat are deemed “the norm,” while many illusions and tricks are — in fact — much more complicated and much more dangerous. Magicians like David Blaine, however, are shattering the illusions of magicians for birthday parties and kids only (think magicians with flashy costumes and coattails).
What Is Adult Magic?
Tricks suitable for children can be fun — but there are many more tricks that will easily demand adults’ attention, too. For example, Blaine is world-famous for his ice pick “illusion,” a trick that involves guiding a real ice pick all the way through his hand. (There has been some debate and talk about him actually doing it.) This one’s definitely a bit much for the kiddos, but it’s a feat that continues to baffle and astound adults all over the world. Adults have also witnessed trade show magicians perform illusions and tricks that are similarly dangerous and mind-boggling. These stunts may involve long, seemingly impossible bouts of breathing underwater and being frozen in blocks of ice or things like mind reading and complex card tricks.
When Is The Best Time To Hire A Magician?
With the true nature of professional magicians in mind, when is the best time to hire one? That’s the thing. A magician can actually be the perfect private party entertainer. Whether you are looking for something to liven up the annual company holiday party or a means of bringing a little something extra to a bachelor party, bachelorette party, or wedding, a magician can easily do it. Do a little bit of research or call professionals directly to get a general idea of what to expect and find the magician best for your event or party.
Don’t be so fast to forget about magic. Magic, illusions, and mind reading can the thrilling for people of all ages and the perfect entertainment for any event.
