Amazing Magician - Grad Nights & Safe and Sober After Prom Parties

Amazing magician! That was the review given by several students this past week. On Sunday, May 22nd, I performed for the Newbury Park High School Safe and Sober After Prom Party where a couple hundred students showed up for a night festivities that lasted until 5:00 a.m.

The After Prom Party was held in a movie theater, and my performance started at Midnight with an hour of strolling close-up magic. At 1:00 A.M. I headed into one of the theaters where I had already set up for a 45-minute show. With a packed house, Dee Dee and I proceeded to showcase our particular brand of magic that was unlike anything these students had ever seen. They were a great audience, and we had a blast performing for everyone. This was our third year in a row performing at this event, and we've already been invited back to perform next year.

On Wednesday, May 25th, Dee Dee and I headed to Hemet, CA to perform at the Hemet High Grad Night. This was our second year performing at this event, which was held in their gymnasium. With 500 grads in attendance, our performance started at Midnight with two hours of strolling close-up magic. The new graduates were highly animated, and the interactive close-up magic got them primed for the stage show which started at 3:00 A.M. 

With the grads sitting on the gym floor, these young adults were surprisingly awake as we hit the small stage. What followed was a rollercoaster ride of laughter and amazement. 45 minutes later it all came to an end. After packing up and getting paid, we were once again asked to return next year. 

I gotta love my repeat clients, and performing for these young people is always a lot of fun! To get more info on my grad night and after prom shows, please visit

A Fantastic End To The Month For Corporate & Social Entertainer Lou Serrano

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.
