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!

Who is David Farr?

David Farr Minnesota magician

David Farr is a professional entertainer based in Minneapolis, who has been entertaining audiences of all ages for over 30 years. You’ve seen magicians before but you have never experienced David Farr.

David Farr helps corporations and private organizations make their events unforgettable and amazingly fun with unique programs consisting of interactive magic, mentalism, comedy and audience participation.

His interest in magic began at the age of 10 and has gone on to become one of the leading Minneapolis magicians in the Twin Cities. It’s astounding how often he is recognized throughout town by past clients and fans.

Since 1989, David Farr has been entertaining audiences around the country. He has helped MN companies such as Medtronic, Target, General Mills and Cargill make their events a smashing success!

Whether he is making sugar come out of their sleeve , predicting what people will think of in their minds or pickpocketing watches without them feeling it, David Farr’s goal is to make you look good by presenting unique entertainment everyone will enjoy and remember forever!

Two Different Styles Of Magic To Make Your Event Unforgettable!

Up Close Interactive 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.

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).

Stage Magic Show with David Farr

What my clients are saying…



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.

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 hired David, whom I have used multiple times in the past, to perform at our wedding. I thought my bride and I were going to be the center of attention, but no, it was David. He was great, everyone loved him. I don't understand why more people don't hire magicians, especially David, for events like weddings, especially if there are some youngsters (but if not, he is still immensely entertaining for adults). I highly recommend David!!

We asked David to do a couple hours of "strolling magic" at our Holiday Party. Was a big hit. Out of the 50+ people at our party I had 10 people approach me to tell me how entertaining they found David. If you're looking for some good, clean magical fun that will leave your guests smiling this could be your guy. David was on-time, well dressed, professional, confident, and a master of his art.

There are a lot of Magicians, but, there is only ONE David Farr. So what does that mean?David embodies the Over Deliver mentality. He pays attention to every detail from the beginning of the booking process, throughout the event, and continues to deliver added value even after the event has ended.He wanted to know what my specific focus was, what outcomes I needed, and what success would look like. It is rare to find someone who is Thoughtful, Creative, Talented, and Kind, all in one person!David, thank you. I expect that I will continue to be a HUGE FAN for years to come!!

We recently hired David to entertain our wedding guests during our cocktail hour as we knew we’d run long having to take pictures. Feedback we received from our guests included words like “phenomenal”, “mind-blown!!”, and “AMAZING”! Everyone we spoke to loved him & said it was the best idea ever to have him entertain our guests. Therefore, I feel it was money very well spent & I would highly recommend booking David for your event.

David was personable and skilled. Everyone at our company party loved his show! The tricks were quite good- he left everyone in awe. Not to mention you can tell he has experience commanding a room. I would hire him again in a second. I don't think for our needs we could have found anyone more qualified. He delivered a fine show!

We hosted an Executive Dinner in Minneapolis and David was the surprise entertainment for the evening. David does an outstanding job of working he room. He started out performing in front of just 2 or 3 people and after a trick or two, his audience quadrupled in size. He does an excellent job of balancing humor with extraordinary magic. The group was blown away by what he was able to do, and several executives were talking about bringing him to their next company meetings. 11/10 would hire David again for future events.

Absolutely awesome! David was very engaging in our group of 40 people. He mingled with the crowd and amazed everyone with his "up close and personal" magic. His stage show after our dinner was also truly amazing. After 10 years of office holiday parties that included entertainment, this year was unanimously voted as "most fun" because of David Farr's magic show. I highly recommend him for any party or event!
