Magicians have become the subject of a huge surge in popularity in recent years, and have become the ideal entertainment choice for dinner parties, corporate events, wedding receptions and birthdays in Launceston. They are also still the top choice for kid's parties, but there's been a huge shift in their popularity for more adult oriented events.

It is a special experience to watch a talented magician perform close up, and regardless how frantically you try, not be able to figure out the secret of those magic tricks.

From performing impromptu magic whilst mingling with guests, to a conventional stage show; a skilled magician will have all the guests at your function looking on captivated. So, how do you decide which magician you need for your function in Launceston?


Before you get in touch with an entertainment company or magician you should for starters take a close look at your guest list. Consider the type of function you're staging and the age brackets of guests who will be there. Having a perception of the expectations of your guests should help you to ask the right questions of your prospective magician.

The variations between a fun party and a more formal corporate event can be hugely different and you might hire the wrong kind of magician if you don't research or understand your precise requirements. To simply book in any old magician without doing this groundwork could be a big mistake. Wedding parties, for example are normally a mixture of ages, and a magician who's more used to events like stag parties or hen parties is probably not the ideal choice. At the other end of the scale, a magician who normally does kids parties might not have the finesse for a wedding function or a corporate event, causing embarrassment for all concerned.

Close-up magic is always a very popular choice for parties and informal occasions, but you also have the choice of street style magicians, sleight of hand experts and pick-pockets. If your function requires a more formal setting, or needs to be performed within a set time frame, look at booking a cabaret, stage or corporate magician to impress the whole audience.

Popular with guests of all ages, and always keeping everyone guessing are mind readers and mentalists. Certain skillful magicians can even turn this round and get audience members to read their mind - the supreme twist to a well loved classic magic trick.


In magic, as with many other things, confidence is key. Launceston magicians with many years of experience behind them will be more likely to adapt and change with a group's different personalities than a magician who is just starting out in the profession. If things goes wrong during a magic trick, as quite often occurs, a seasoned magician will turn it to his or her advantage and make it part of the show, whilst somebody just setting out in the business may become flustered over the mistake. This is when years of experience working with groups of people comes to the forefront.

With the benefit of experience also comes the knowledge of working the crowd. If a magician can't do this it's likely that you'll wind up with a cringey experience that is embarrassing. The capacity to communicate with guests of any background or age is a pre-requisite for any professional magician in Launceston. The thing that turns a decent magician into an amazing one, is the ability to put all your guests at ease, especially if they've volunteered to be a part of a magic trick.

It is also a sign of a good magician not to give away his secrets, or perform magic tricks that are obvious or easy to deduce. Also, they shouldn't rely on tightly scripted material, since entertaining live audiences can throw up unexpected surprises at every turn. You will be looking for a performer who interacts with the guests and gives your event a genuine OMG moment, not someone who strolls in, does a couple of tricks, pockets the fee and leaves.
