At holiday parties both corporate and private; a magician works well to loosen up the crowd! Holiday/Christmas celebrations often involve pasted horderves; employees, staff, and friends milling about until they find someone they know to converse with.
When a magician works the cocktail entertainment… the room comes alive! We create an ‘ice-breaker’ so those that don’t know each other that experience our brand of fun talents they now have a common event to discuss even with strangers. When I work corporate holiday office parties during the cocktail/social hours I bring people together by including them in the fun. I might as I have my back turned to be fair to the group that I am wowing (by not trying to see their chosen card) I will say to other guests “watch what I am about to do.” I give them permission to join our little group and then I am always asking the people I am performing for for their names. Now we all know each other by our first names:)
A magician can loosen up the crowd also by acting as a co-host (that is part of our job) to give the host, CEO, owner, a chance to relax and not be in two places at once trying to connect with all their guests immediately. When a corporate magician is doing their performance well we become like a silent co-host helping move the party along and engaging new guests as they arrive.
Strolling/roaming illusions allow us to be very interactive so it’s more of an experience rather than just watching entertainment from a distance or the marvelous DJ’s and bands that are more background music. A magician’s job is to create the fun and then provide it to other small groups so everyone has a great time.
Of course our main goal is to create a ‘wow’ factor for our client, or company which kicks off their party in a fun, unique, and exciting way that will make everyone talk about the party for weeks and even months to come!
