May ended up being the busiest month of the year so far with 22 events booked all across Southern CA. Although the month was a blur of social and corporate events, the very last week was particularly memorable.
On Thurs. May 28th, Dee and I performed for the Hemet High School Grad Night. They were expecting between 500 and 600 high school graduates, and we performed a 45-minute magic show for a weary and sleep-deprived crowd. The Grad Night started at 9 p.m. and ended at 4:00 a.m. the following morning. Our show started at 3:00 a.m. and although it was quite late to be starting a show, the adrenaline kicked in and we delivered a high-energy performance. The audience was much more receptive than I anticipated, and we've already been asked back to perform next year!
On Sat. May 30th, I had two shows. The first was for a private event of about 30 people at the City Club of Los Angeles. The City Club is a private club located on the 51st floor of the City National building in heart of Downtown Los Angeles. This was the second time I've done a show here in the last six months This place is beautiful with amazing views of the entire city.
My second show was in Westchester, CA for a 50th birthday party. There were about 50 people all gathered in the family room, and I performed a 45-minute show. The audience was fantastic! By coincidence I ran into a fellow performer and wonderfully entertaining balloon artist, Dennis Forel, who took the following picture.
Sunday ended with two more private shows. The first in Calabasas, CA and the second in Encino, CA. Both audiences were very similar, and at the same time, very different. Both groups consisted of about 20 people with the first group being very young people and the second group being all retirees. The nice thing about magic is that it transcends all age barriers. It's amazing to see young and old alike experience the wonder of a stealthily executed illusion.
I'm so incredibly grateful that I get to make a living as a professional magician sharing my special brand of magic, comedy, and mind reading. No two days are ever the same, and no two audiences are ever the same. It's what makes my line of work as a Los Angeles magician exhilarating!
I'm looking forward to the diverse types of engagements that June is sure to bring. If you'd like some world-class entertainment to delight your guests at your next event, please don't hesitate to give me a call.
