I enjoy bringing comedy magic to birthday parties and family events. For very young children I tailor the show to make it fun and colorful and magical. For older kids in the 8-10 year old range I have a dynamic show that grabs their attention and gets them laughing with the comedy and in this show the magic is totally puzzling and blows their minds. Very fun for this sophisticated set who have seen a lot of magic and special effects.

I have done birthday parties for a range of people including an 80 year old doctor and several 50 year old parties. Adults are just big kids inside and the comedy brings out the fun in everyone. check for more information as you plan your birthday party.

"Norm incorporated fun and laughter for all ages. We completely enjoyed his performance!! Students and staff left the auditorium talking about the awesome show!! Thank you Norm!!!"

Birthday Party Magic and Fun

Just received a nice comment on the Birthday Party Magic Show. I love being a magician in Minnesota.

"Hi Norm - wanted to say thank you again for hosting the birthday party for my 14 year old. Those creatures are hard to entertain and you did it with zest! Lillian was very thrilled to have you at her party. The grown-ups had a few giggles as well. Thanks again!"

L Fix -Edina

Wow! Thanks for the nice comment about the magic and comedy show. You have a very sophisticated and courteous daughter and her friends were all very nice. I love to make people laugh and your group of 14 year-olds was a delight. I loved seeing the expressions of amazement as the tricks unfolded. They were a very sweet bunch and I wish you and your family a great year ahead.

This show was held in the banquet room of the Diavonni's Pizza place in Edina, MN. Its a great place to have a party.

Norm is a sleight of hand expert. Amazing tricks happen bare handed. No fake tubes and boxes that the kids can figure out. Norm has entertained full time for over 28 years and brings cool and amazing original tricks that grab kids attention and gets them laughing like crazy. He does not do those same old simple tricks that are the stock and trade of most children's magicians that are bought at any magic shop.

Don't blink your eyes as Norm presents the vanishing pen trick. It is amazing! The pen and cap disappear several times and re-appear in a comical way. It is amazing bare hand magic that has even the older kids puzzled and wondering. Norm brings tricks that fool adults and children of all ages, but more than that it is entertaining and dynamic.

He's experienced, enthusiastic and professional. Norm tailors the magic to the age group he is entertaining. Your party will be the best ever with Norm's comedy magic!

"Thanks for a great birthday show for my daughter! She and her friends loved it, and she has already asked me to start reading her the magic book you gave her. I'm still trying to figure out how the newspaper trick is possible.... Thanks, again!"
- Jared Nypen - Prior Lake, MN

"The show was very fun! The kids really enjoyed it! They laughed really hard! Wonderful entertainer, hope he will come back in the future! Always kept the kids guessing and wanting more."

- Krisi K Pre/Teacher

"MagicNorm performed for the Mabel Public Library summer reading program. It was a very enjoyable experience for the kids and the adults. He included several of the kids as assistants and they absolutely loved the experience. Lots of laughs! Great job!"

- L. Hoff - Mabel Public Library

"I wanted to thank you again for taking the time to come and perform for the patients and families here at Gillette. Everyone loved it and had a fabulous time! The kids are still talking about the tricks! Thank you especially for being so accomodating and interactive with the kids. They absolutely loved being a part of the show as they were able to help you perform magic! It was wonderful to watch the kids faces light up in awe and wonder! It was such a wonderful magical night and much needed by these families! Thanks for putting the magic back in our hearts! We would love to have you back for another performance in the future!"

Kid's Party Video Testimonial

"Norm provided his 'walk-around' magic services for our 5th Anniversary Gala at the Graves 601 Hotel here in Minneapolis. Having used his stage show services in the past, we already knew him to be the best choice. Norm is not only a master magician but doing his 'mingling magic' he's also a master of providing magic and comedy in a respective and unobtrusive manner. He knows how to work his way in and around the crowd, so you hardly know he's there until bursts of laughter or "WOWs" are heard from various small groups around the event. Norm, you're simply the BEST!"

- Tricia Haynes, MicroGrants Gala at the Graves 601 Hotel, Minneapolis.

Norm presented his show at 10 libraries across the metro area recently and he received many comments from librarians.

"Norm continually worked reading into his show -- he was terrific about tying in lots of book titles. The Staff received more smiling thank-you comments than we have ever had."

"Norm provided the Centennial Library audience with a fast paced, entertaining and fun show. Its evident that Norm has high standards for himself and his act. It was great to have him back at Centennial again." (performed here 6 years)

"The audience loved the performance and were all really into it. He included lots of children volunteers in his tricks which they really enjoyed."
