A Rare Performance During the Pandemic

 Boston’s Best Adult Birthday Magician

So, here we are…February first. 2021. The pandemic is still a menace to the globe. I like many other entertainers am “running in the red.” It’s been a year without income, it will be the first time in years that I will not be sending a large check to the IRS in April. my expenses, even with serious cuts far out weigh the miniscule income. But don’t feel bad for me, my retirement income, along with my wife’s keeps a roof over our head with enough left for food.

Currently, two vaccines have been approved, with at least a couple more approaching on the horizon. I can hardly contain myself, but I must wait for my “turn”. You can see in the picture, I am using two masks. No one is really sure if this is beneficial. I come form the “more is better” school of thinking.
Last week I received a request for an adult Birthday performance. My response was to the point and succinct. “I perform with a mask and follow all guidelines of the State of Massachusetts.” the client assured me they take this virus seriously, and the number of guests would be below the limit. so we proceeded forward.
On January 31’st we were in the cross hairs of a Nor’ Easter, a major stumbling block for driving. This party was in jeopardy. The client contacted me and asked if it would be better to start early…I said, “yes, yes, yes!”
Honestly, the driving was not good…I took the back roads and drove very slowly. I made it there with only two minor skids.
what a pleasure to perform, it’s been so long. I don’t think the rust showed. We all had a good time, and I headed home. This time only one minor skid. I got in the door to the delight of my wife and dog.
I got changed out of my suit and relaxed in front of the TV. About an hour after I got home, the phone rings…guess who? It was Mike, the client. He was checking in to make sure I made it home safe. Wow, what a good human being. They are still out their. thanks Mike, you made my day. (Thank you for your more than generous tip as well.) I believe we will meet again.

I am my own Magician. I just threw away a lot of top Hats. I thought I was supposed to do everything for everyone, but I can’t, and don’t need to. I visit other Magician’s web sites. Lots of glitter, bells and whistles, with Services for every aspect of the magician’s craft. Now it’s not my place to be knocking other Magicians. Maybe they provide services at the highest standard, meaning they are: Magicians, clowns, balloon twisters, stage magicians, strolling magicians, corporate magicians…you get the idea? I do two things, yes two, but they play well in a lot of markets. Thing Number One, The Strolling Magician: This means I do close up Magic, and I do it very well thank you. Also I don’t need a table. Just one thing, but it plays in innumerable markets. To name just a few, any party or gathering of people in a common place. This includes business and pleasure, the family Holiday party, the Corporate Holiday party, the small business holiday party, and on it goes. From A-Z…Zoo Openings. As I previously said, this covers any gathering of people who would like commercial entertainment. You can figure out the rest…Weddings…
Thing Number Two, The Parlor Magician: Sounds dull, not by a long shot. Three related shows. One show that runs thirty minutes, another at forty five, and finally one hour. Hopefully, I can provide solid entertainment for everyone’s budget. Parlor? What does parlor mean? Very simple, I stand up in front a group of people who are seated in chairs and I perform solo magic, interactive magic, fun magic, Comedy magic. Laughter and amazement on one plate. So where does this play? In all the situations of Thing Number One: with the exception that the audience is seated. I do just two things that play well in more situations than you can imagine. Sorry, you’ll need to hire somebody else to twist those balloons. You see, I only do two things that play well at more events than you can imagine. Joe Ferranti:Magician
