Up Close Interactive Magic

Are you looking for corporate party entertainment? 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.

These Are The Kinds of Memories That Your Guests Are Going To Remember Forever!

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).

Testimonials

~

David was the highlight of our market. Everyone (attendees, managers, executives, hotel staff, etc.) was absolutely enthralled with his street magic, and came back for more during the evening show. We can’t thank him enough. From day one he put us at ease with great communication and attention to detail, and then truly shined as he engaged our customers and kept them in the showroom wanting to see more.

I can’t say enough about David. We hired him for a corporate event AND for a separate fundraiser event and he hit the ball out of the park! Not only are his magic tricks amazing (i.e. mind-blowing!), he is such a great guy and very personable. Great jokes to boot…. and the crowd loved him.

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. You may have been looking for a magician near me when searching online but keep in mind David Farr will travel!

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.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal. You may pay securely online using PayPal or our Secure Payment Page. If paying with check, please make check payable to “David Farr

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.

We would hire David again - without thinking twice
Fantastic! Everyone loved the show. It was (other than the birthday girl) the centerpiece of the party. Highly recommend David.
We had David at our work event. He was there for 2 hours roaming around to all the tables. Our work population is 50% Spanish speaking. David was so engaging and the feedback from tall he employees was the he was amazing! Our employees loved him!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Linnea for your kind words. Your group was amazing. Congratulations on the impressive safety record!
David was AMAZING! Kids were mesmerized by his magic ~ we can't wait to have him back!!
Response from the owner: It was great working with you Katie! Thank you!
There is none better!!!!! Wish we could use 10 stars!! This is the 2nd time we have had David perform for us. Most recent was our sons Bar Mitzvah Party, and I will say that his impression left with our guests will be talked about for generations. He mystified the audience from age 6 to age 80, and even with our other entertainment, David's performance was the cherry on top of the sundae. Search no further if you are looking to have any expectations far exceeding what ever you think is possible. Cannot give any higher of a recommendation, even though we wish there was a way too, and we will find a way to work with him again even though we may be out of celebrations for a while!!!!!Sincerely,Steven, Jill and Josh Confeld
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Steven! I had fun melting the minds of your guests. Hopefully Ruby and Josh will recover soon LOL. Thanks again Steven!
Southwest Minneapolis High School has had the pleasure of David entertaining our graduates for the last 12 years. The graduates find David very entertaining and keep him busy during his time at the graduation party. One event the new graduates look forward to every year.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Cyrus. It was a pleasure wowing the grads of Southwest High School and working with you. See you next year. Thanks again!
Such a terrific experience! The magic was amazing and everyone was fascinated and in awe. This is the second time we have hired him to perform and we will definitely use him again!
Response from the owner: Thanks Heather. You were great to work with!
Best magician my friends and I have ever seen!! David is dynamic, funny, and also a real life wizard. Be warned — you’ll definitely need to change the locks on your mind palace after seeing him at work! We can’t stop talking about ANY of the nonstop mind boggling parts of his show. Can’t wait for the next opportunity to see him!
Response from the owner: You're very kind Sammi. Thank you so much for your review! You and your friends were awesome!
David was a hit at our Senior party! He had a captive audience from the moment he walked in the door. He did a great job with roving magic, engaging with everyone that walked by and drawing crowds of kids. So great to see their child-like smiles and awe from David’s tricks. 10/10, highly recommend!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Jenna! The Rosemount grads were amazing. Thanks again so much for inviting me back and your very kind words!
David was super easy to work with and brought great energy to our event! No problems at all keeping a crowd of both kids and adults engaged and entertained, thanks David!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Kevin. You guys put on quite the event. Thanks for inviting me to be a part of the fun!
David is highly entertaining and a professional from start to finish. Highly recommend him for your event!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Chad and congratulations to your graduate!
The interactive nature of the entertainment, magic, tricks, and illusions had people reacting in amazement and laughing. No one was embarrassed or intimidated. A variety of magic was performed at table top, standing together and while on stage; he constantly moved about the room and across the stage, very engaging. David was very well prepared, I noticed he was super focused on our group- learning from us the whole time, then adapting the performance to us making it feel like he really knew our company. His recall of names and the nuances of the group while performing was excellent. I particularly enjoyed his spoken words keeping us engaged the whole time with funny brainteasers. The strolling performance coupled with the stage performance was a great offering to keep our group involved and attentive, the price and amount of time were just right. He brought his own a/v; a relief not to have to coordinate and be concerned about glitches. The follow up after my online interest inquiry was excellent. Seeing his online clips and examples was a huge benefit to get a feel for what he was about. Awesome preparation getting good info up front in the weeks and days leading up to performance. I knew he did not forget about us and the booking was solid! He and Christina work great together. Our folks are still talking about it. I liked hiring local and not feeling that I was paying for transportation. David is amazing at connecting with the group-great personality and he also gave a great recommendation of another entertainer for next year......over and above!!!
Response from the owner: Thanks so so much Julie. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. It was an absolute pleasure working with you! Thanks again Julie!
Comments as David entertained at our high school post prom party. "Unbelievable", "This guy is crazy good", "We need to have him at post prom every year."This was the second time we have had David perform at post prom and he was, once again, a huge hit. Highly recommend!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Codi for your kind review! Please do keep me in mind for next year! Thanks again and take care.
David performed 'strolling' magic at our company trade show and amazed everyone! This act would work well in both corporate and private settings, and we will definitely be using David Farr magic in the future. Highly recommend to others!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Kristie for the very kind words. It was great working with you and I hope to be able to amaze your guests soon at your next event!
This is our second time having David at an event and he wows the crowd each time. I highly recommend him for any event and I am sure we will use him again in the near future.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Maggie. It was great to work with you folks again!
Simple - It was MAGIC. David kept everyone laughing and entertained, 100% recommend
Response from the owner: Thank you Alex!
David Farr really brought the Christmas magic to POET this year! He created an unforgettable experience for the whole group with his incredible illusions and his humorous personality topped it off.
Response from the owner: Thank you Mindy. You guys were awesome!
Our group enjoyed David. We opted for the platinum package and were very pleased. David was very interactive with people at our event. He mingled in with small groups prior to his stage show and many positive comments on how fun and entertaining he was. As far as booking and communication prior to event David and his team were very responsive and easy to work with. I’d recommend David for your event.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Julie. It was an absolute delight to work with you. I had so much fun with your group. Thanks again and take care.
David was engaging and our students really enjoyed his roving magic during our spring Welcome Week! I highly recommend him for your college/corporate event!

Response from the owner: Thanks so much Nicole. I had a blast with your fun and lively group!
David Farr is excellent! We hired David as a strolling magician for our corporate holiday party and he was amazing. As he worked the room during the social hour, there was much amazement and surprise everywhere he went. I highly recommend him!We previously used David for a full length show, on stage, and loved it, the experience and great memories that came with it.David's website makes it easy to see and choose the type and length of magic show that best fits your needs. David is a very skilled and talented magician you're sure to enjoy!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Charles! I appreciate your kind words. It's been great working with you over the years!
The best of the best. We've used David Farr for three separate corporate events over the past 20 years and he continues to refine his craft. Our staff were entertained and amazed; would not hesitate to hire him again!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Paul! I really appreciate your kind words!
David provided his skillful magic and delightful humor for a recent corporate holiday party and he was an instant hit from the first trick he performed until the last large group finale. Entertaining our group of 80 people for 2 hours, he worked the crowd in small groups and thrilled our audience. Professional on all levels. He arrived on time for the event and booking his services was a breeze. Highly recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment for a corporate event.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Nate for your kind review. It was a pleasure working with you. Say hi to Laura for me!
19 years ago I hired a magician for my 6 yr old son and 8 year old daughter birthday party. He entertained 24 children having them to leave with questions and speculation of how the tricks took place. I too, to this day, would like to know how he got my watch of my wrist!?!Yesterday I hired the same amazing magician For my youngest son for his 8th birthday party. It definitely was a magical moment. He performed a magic trick with my two boys that are now 25 and 8. Created a memory for us that we could have never done ourselves. Now that's a great magic trick!!Thank you for the memories and experience to share with many in the years to come.Cary GHopkins, MN
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Cary. It was great seeing you guys again! I'm glad it all worked out so well!
I was skeptical of David the magician as I am with most. David changed my perspective, wow! His magic was incredible, if you don’t believe in magic hire David!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much for your kind words. What an amazing boat cruise today!
David came and performed at the annual UHC Global Innovation Challenge 2023. Not only is he absolutely charming and his dry sense of humor very funny, he is truly magical! All of our guests were impressed with his smaller walking tricks, and blown away by his stage show. He was flexible with his time, highly processional, and business appropriate for our international guests. I would hands down recommend him to anyone who asked, and would bring him back for more events. Thank you David! You are a wonder!
Response from the owner: Nicole you are the best! Thanks so much for your very kind words. It was such a treat working with you!
What a great show. He did an amazing job! Highly recommend!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Tim!
David was absolutely amazing! Such a good magic show
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Taya! Is the X still on your hand?
He did a surprise show for my family at a birthday party. Thought it was going to be one of those kid trick magic shows that was pretty standard but he blew my mind! The tricks he had are unexplainable and a total surprise. He had the whole crowd laughing and in disbelief. So much fun! Definitely book him for one of your events.
David performed at a small birthday party with kids and adults. His show was jaw dropping. He is not only a magician, but an amazing entertainer. He got all age groups involved and participating. He pulled off a special personalized trick at the end for me. He made our entire weekend. Whether you need someone to do walk around magic at a large or small event or a special show, David is your person. We can't thank him enough and can't stop talking about it. Our minds were literally blown by the magic.
Amazing! David was brilliant, funny, engaging!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much for your kind words Mia!
We are thrilled to give David a glowing 5-star review! David took our Customer Appreciation Event to a whole new level with his incredible performance. David's mind-blowing tricks left our attendees in awe and created an unforgettable experience. His talent and entertainment skills truly made the event a resounding success!
Response from the owner: Your team members and suppliers were awesome! I had so much fun with everyone! Thanks for inviting me to entertain. The event was amazing and a perfect evening for Twins Baseball!
Our company had “Fun Fridays” this Summer and having David as a guest was a big hit with the employees. His magic was very entertaining and his interactions with employees had everyone engaged, and amazed. He is professional, friendly, and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him for another work event!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Lisa. It was great working with you again. I had a ton of fun with your team members!
David was an outstanding addition to our dinner reception. He worked the room of 30 people with ease and by the end of the evening had us all at attention to see what amazing feat was next.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Brian. Your group was amazing!
I am happy to be posting this 5 star review for David Farr: I hosted a backyard birthday party for my sister-in-law who was celebrating her 75th. The age span of the guests was 2 -1/2 years old up to 75.David's performance was nothing less than outstanding - he captured the attention and awe of every single guest as he did his strolling magic, and then did a closing standing performance when we were all seated that was nothing less than stellar!!In addition, the booking and payment process was seamless, and his office manager Christina was a pleasure to work with. I highly highly recommend David if you are looking for a magician to perform at your next event/party! He is a fabulous magician and entertainer, and, also important, very professional, and a very nice guy!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Suzy for your very kind words. I really appreciate you sharing your comments here. It was a pleasure working with you!
We had David for our company family picnic and he was amazing! Everyone enjoyed his magic tricks and show. Perfect for adults and kids.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Kari. It was great working with you again!
We had David perform at our company dinner in May. He did a phenomenal job! During our cocktail hour, he interacted and amazed smaller groups with his magic. After dinner he entertained the entire group with a full show with lots of participation from our group. We had a great time!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much for your kind review Robert!
Simply amazing, I have seen David’s illusions twice now and still can’t figure out how he can do it.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Rick! I always enjoy having fun with the folks at Global Pointe!
Great Entertainment!!
David is AmAzInG!!! Love his shows!! Great entertainment!!
We hired David for a High School senior party and we were extremely pleased with him. We hired him mainly because he had rave reviews from the last year’s senior party. The kids all seemed genuinely amazed by his talents! He moved around and interacted with many groups of kids and had no problems holding their attention. Highly recommended!!
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Laurie! It's always great working with you!
David was hired to performed at the STMA Grad Party. The seniors were blown away by his magic. He walked around and entertained numerous groups of students throughout the night and kept the seniors engaged. I would highly recommend him for any event of all ages - private or corporate.
Response from the owner: Thank you so very much Chrisanna! It was a pleasure to work with you. Looking forward to future parties!
Amazing show. Great magician/mentalist. He made our party!

Response from the owner: Haha, thanks so much Kenzie!
David performed at our 51st wedding anniversary party to an audience that ranged from 5 years to 90. What fun! I would say everyone loved the show. Since our party, everyone has told us how fun the show was and how talented David is. He has dominated the conversation of the party because he is so good. I would recommend him for any event.
Response from the owner: Thank you Sandra! I had so much fun with you folks!
David was a great addition to our After Prom event. Even as he was finished for the evening the kids wanted to see more. Very personable and drew in the attention of the students! Highly recommend!
Response from the owner: Thank you Alicia! It was great working with you!
David was great at our chamber event! He engaged with the audience during the social hour with close up magic which added something nice to the event - his on stage act was excellent! Never missed a beat and always amazed the crowd.As the event coordinator I especially appreciated the pre-call to make sure we were thinking of those things that would make the night go off without a hitch and it did.
Response from the owner: Thanks so much Debbi. It was great to work with you folks!
Most talented magician I’ve ever seen! He is equally good at entertaining at birthday parties, elementary school performances, and corporate events. I have seen him perform four times now and have seen him entertain in all of those different settings. You truly cannot go wrong, and you will not cease to be amazed if you hire David!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Beth for your very kind words. It was great working with you today!
