Additional Insurance Certificate $50
Is your party taking place at a venue? If your show will take place at a location other than a private residence the venue may require you to provide a certificate of liability insurance. Community centers are a good example of this. Most venues require to be listed additionally on Matt's liability policy. Matt's insurance carrier charges him a fee to add venues onto his policy. This fee is not included in Matt's performance fee. If required it can be purchased and provided for a fee of $50. Please determine in advance if your party venue will require this and contact Matt at least two weeks in advance of your child's party to ensure Matt's insurance company has time to process a certificate for your venue. This service is billed separately and only provided once paid for.

What Moms Are Saying!
"Teagan said, “It was the best birthday party EVER!”
You definitely have a gift with kids as well as funny magic!"
"After the guests left, Cibrián said, "Mom, I wish the magician could always be here." You helped us make a great childhood memory for him. A priceless gift!"
"Thanks, Matt. You helped make Bryson’s party a huge success! A couple comments I heard were “My child hasn’t ever sat focused on one thing for that long” and “He really kept the kids engaged”. Bryson wants to do “the same thing” for his 6th birthday, so we’ll definitely stay in touch. But if all goes according to plan, we’ll see you before that…at one of Bryson’s friend’s parties."
"Thank you so much for the show. Everyone enjoyed it, even the parents! You exceeded everyone's expectations!"
K. Higgins, Gilbert
"You made my son's birthday absolutely fun and wonderful. Everyone there enjoyed every second of your show. Quentin is still talking about it and the first thing out of his brother’s mouth that evening when we were driving home was, “I want him to come to my next party.” You’re amazing and I can't thank you enough."

Birthday parties present unique and demanding performance conditions that I've learned to minimize, eliminate, and deal with throughout the years to ensure that you, your child, and all of your party guests receive a memorable experience. My past birthday party clients are among my happiest and all of them would tell you that my show requirements are a small price to pay for the quality of show you receive on your child's special day.
" I appreciate all your pre-show communications and prep, which is no doubt what added to the success of Saturday."
The show must take place indoors.
Outdoor birthday parties play host to a variety of distractions that affect the kid’s enjoyment of the show, my performance, your overall satisfaction, and my future business. If your party plans cannot be arranged to hold the show indoors I encourage you to save the magic show for a future year when you can.
Performance area of 7 feet wide by 6 feet deep.
The show works best against a wall or closed window with room in the front for the children to sit on the floor. Living rooms and dens typically provide more than sufficient area. Many people open up a room simply by removing a sofa or quickly rearranging the furniture. Please note additional area is required for the Suspension Illusion.
A parent or guardian must be present throughout the show.
Reasons range from medical emergencies to redirecting the children if they decide to tear the room apart. Please realize I am not a babysitter, I am there to entertain the children. I feel it is neither my place nor my job to enforce any household rules or behavior.

When should the magic show start during my party?
It is HIGHLY recommended that you select a show start time at least 30-45 minutes after the start of your party to account for late arrivals so that everyone will be present when the show begins. Late arrivals can be very disruptive for the audience and performer and in some cases completely ruin a special or funny moment in the show. Imagine the doorbell ringing right as I'm floating your child and you get the idea. I want to ensure you and your child get the best show possible. Again, it's best to start the show 30-45 minutes after the start of your party.
Do you take full payment upfront?
Yes, for several reasons. First, it actually makes both of our lives easier come show day. In the past, I ran into a lot of awkward situations where I had to rudely interrupt party activities following my performance in order to get paid so that I could leave in order to get to my next show on time. As you can imagine this was frustrating to everyone and ended everyone's experience on a sour note. Secondly, when I used to require no payment up front, I ran into a lot of empty promises and last minute cancellations because there was no commitment on the customer's end. Finally, taking a deposit upfront created the same aforementioned issue at the party and required twice as much work on everybody's end because I actually had to collect payment twice. After buying concert tickets, I realized the solution. I settled on the concert system and have been taking payment upfront for years now. It has been highly successful. Please take a look at all of my reviews here and online, each and everyone of these customers paid upfront.
What guarantee do I have that you'll show up?
If you're asking this question hopefully my online reputation and reviews bring you some peace of mind. I have worked very hard to establish my business on integrity. However, I have missed 7 shows in the past decade due to illness. These 7 shows were missed over a period of 3 days. Each customer was contacted directly and given as much notice as possible to prepare them for the possibility of my absence. They were contacted again when I was forced to cancel. Several of these customers were very upset, several were understanding. All had their money refunded or rescheduled alternate dates with me and had their shows honored. At the end of the day, I don't believe any of them wanted me showing up while I was throwing up. Please keep in mind this is a full time business for me and I take it very seriously. I realize that running late or missing a show impacts not only your overall satisfaction, but also my future business. I do my best to communicate with you throughout your entire experience even if that means calling ahead to prepare you for the worst, which is VERY rare.
What if I decide to cancel my party or my kid gets sick and we can't have the party?
Fifty dollars of your payment is non-refundable if for any reason you decide to cancel the agreed upon performance date. If for any reason you are forced or decide to cancel the performance prior to the scheduled performance date please allow as much notice as possible and you will either be refunded the reminder of your performance fee minus fifty dollars, or you will have the option of rescheduling another date and time that accommodates both of our schedules at no additional cost. Cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled performance date will forfeit the full performance fee without the option of rescheduling (rare exceptions apply, are at the sole discretion of Funny Magic For Kids, and are determined on a case by case basis).
Do you do offer balloon animals following your performances?
No, because I'm more interested in providing you with the BEST magic show possible. Balloon magic is featured in my shows, but I do not do balloon sculpting. If you're looking for a balloon artist, I highly recommend hiring a professional balloon artist. If you're looking for a magician, I highly recommend you hire me, my magic show is unmatched.
