17th May – Magician in Hertfordshire for a birthday party
Tonight was a big drive for a magician that lives in Chester (about 4 hours). I was to be a surprise for the guest of honour at a 50th birthday party being held at the lovely Fanhams Hall Hotel . I discovered when I got there that I wasn’t the only surprise guest lined up, as they had also booked a stripper (I was praying that there was no confusion when I entered the main room!).
I was booked as a birthday magician to entertain the guests as they arrived, at the start of the party. It was my job to get people laughing and help set an entertaining tone for the night. This is the best part of my job; I can bring people together, help break the ice and start everyone laughing.
I also got to perform a special trick for the birthday boy, which he really enjoyed and, after the event, I received two emails; one from his partner who booked me:
“You were amazing and really I should be the one thanking you, for leaving our friends and family in a state of complete bewilderment and awe! Having you at the party really gave the evening a certain flair!”
and another from the birthday boy:
“I just wanted to send an email to you to say a big ‘thank you’ for coming along to my fiftieth birthday celebrations and helping make the night so memorable. Everybody really enjoyed the magic and had a great time meeting you. They were delighted and baffled by the magic. You certainly helped get the night off to a great start!”
