The office is buzzing about your magic! One employee on my floor was telling one person after the next about the watch trick you did with our president and CEO. Truly amazing. Thanks for making the corporate event fun and entertaining.
Our corporate party had live music, fancy catered food and even guided tours. But the one thing everyone is still raving about days later is that amazing magician! Great work. You impressed a lot of people who aren’t easily impressed!
Your Guests Won’t Remember the Food, the Music or the Decorations… They Will Remember the Entertainment!

Two Different Styles Of Magic To Make Your Event Unforgettable!
1. Walk around magic
One of the important factors in creating a really special event is to make sure that your guests start having fun right away…minutes after they arrive. You’ll be delighted as you hear the gasps of amazement and laughter as your guests are entertained with their own 5 to 7 minute shows which include super fun magic that happens in their own hands. This enchanting, fun, and intimate form of “walk around” entertainment is perfect for cocktail parties or as before dinner entertainment. It will leave the lasting impression you desire.

2. stage comedy magic show
Should this much fun be banned? “The After Dinner Show” is a 45 minute stage show that includes baffling demonstrations of magic and illusion, comedy, E.S.P., pick-pocketing, tons of audience interaction, plus… “Let’s Burn A Deal” An audience member signs her $100 dollar bill and places it inside an envelope to be mixed up with other envelopes. She picks one and the others a burnt to a crisp. She discovers that she has selected the wrong envelope and her money is burnt. This is funny to watch her reaction throughout the show. The signed bill reappears in the back of the room at the end of the performance to everyone’s amazement (and the woman’s delight).

Frequently Asked Questions
Is David Farr able to entertain people who don't speak English?
Thankfully, magic is very universally appealing to all walks of life! Although your non-english speaking guests may not totally understand every funny joke David makes, they’ll still be thoroughly entertained and amazed by what they see!
Does David perform outside of the Minneapolis St. Paul area?
Yes, even though David is based in Minneapolis, MN, he travels to all parts of Minnesota as well as the upper midwest in cities such as Des Moines, IA, Fargo, ND, Sioux Falls, SD and Madison, WI.
What do we need to provide you on our end?
What is needed varies based on the type of entertainment being provided. If you go with a strolling/close up magic package, where David is merely strolling through your event and entertaining the guests, there are virtually no additional requirements. Everything David needs he comes prepared with in his pockets ready to entertain when he arrives at the event. For the stage show packages, there are some important requirements that are needed in order for a successful performance. 1. If David is the only performer with equipment on the stage (besides a podium), then we recommend a stage at least 12′ x 8′ and at least 6 inches off the floor. Depending on how high the stage is, stairs might also be required as there is fun audience participation throughout the performance. In cases where David’s equipment would be sharing the stage with other performer(s), a larger stage me be necessary or other special considerations. 2. In most cases, David will provide his own sound system unless it’s a performance that requires air travel. In this case, we’ll also need a professional sound system setup and monitored throughout the performance. The best type of mic is a headset mic known as a “country man”. It is wireless and hands free. We also need an an input for an iPod for sound effects. Once again, most of the time David provides his own professional sound system. Please keep in mind that you still may have AV needs yourself and still may want to ask your venue to provide a microphone to show a presentation, announce winners, give speeches, etc. 3. In regards to lighting, we have no specific needs but do recommend not having your event too dark because it becomes more difficult for your guests to experience the amazing magic when they are struggling to see what’s happening.
Is David able to entertain while people are eating?
Technically yes but we really don’t recommend it. By the nature of the entertainment, your guests participate in the magic and are often asked to help out. This is sometimes difficult when people are eating. And also it’s hard to “watch closely” when you’re enjoying dinner. This applies to all packages, strolling and stage shows.
Will this embarrass or offend anyone?
We’re proud to say that absolutely NO ONE is embarrassed in any way. We’ve heard many horror stories of how other entertainers have completely offended guests in the audience with off color jokes and remarks. David Farr’s entertainment is completely G-Rated and never relies on entertaining people by making fun or laughing at people. “We’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you…”
What kind of room set up do you need for the stage show?
Typically having the stage setup against a wall having all of your guests seated in front and as close as possible (this helps provide a more intimate feeling). Guests that are seated directly to either side of the stage or behind, have TERRIBLE seats and therefore it’s best to avoid that. A space that can comfortably seat all of your guests without having them on the sides or behind the stage is best. Also watch out for those huge annoying beams right in the middle of some rooms. Please take into consideration your guests so they don’t get stuck behind one of them and miss out on the fun. See the example room diagram below. Optionally, you can request “pipe and drape” for the stage which basically serves as the backdrop of the performance and gives it a nice feel.
What size audiences can David entertain?
David’s entertainment is best suited for small to medium size crowds. David entertains groups as intimate as 10 people all the way up to 500 guests in a ballroom. If you have a large group (200 or more), the use of projection screens makes the show even more enjoyable for your guests. Talk to your venue or contact a local audio/video company with questions to further explore that option.
