Look no further for a Magician. You have found him...

Hire this illusionist for you event!
You will not be disappointed.
Steve Kish is very professional in appearance, manner and performance.
Steve arrived on time and hit the ground running. His act is first class and very entertaining. Our audience ( a very large one) loved not just the illusions he performed but his interaction with people that made the show more enjoyable and personal for each group he worked with. Steve blended well with everyone and was just a pleasure to work with. .......Bravo!

Excellent Show!

Steve Kish is an excellent magician who knows the secret to connecting with the audience, be it kids or adults. Everyone in my party enjoyed his performance. Overall I would take up his services again!

Kish the Magician was great! 

We hired him to perform at our daughters birthday, we had about 20 children ranging 1-16yrs old and he interacted with each and everyone of them including the adults! He kept the children and adults on the edge of their seats, the children laughes and screamed in excitement the entire show! We had such a blast and now all of the kids want Kish to perform at their birthday! Thank you Kish for making our daughters birthday one to remember!

"A Magical Experience"

I booked Steve Kish for my daughter's 7th birthday. He is a wonderful performer and magician. He captivated the children and adults alike. He made sure to include all the kids in his performance. The children were completely immersed in the show and it was a huge hit. Steve puts on a great magic show and is incredibly funny. Thank you for making Olivia's birthday so special and magical. She told me that this was her best birthday ever.

"Entertaining for All Age Groups"

We hired Steve Kish to do a magic show at a neighborhood block party. Our HOA has a large number of 8 to 12 year olds. The kids were totally entertained for the entire hour along with other teenagers and adults. His show is very interactive which keeps the kids interested. Steve was very flexible with scheduling, our first date was rained out. He has a variety of formats if you want to hire him again. It is likely we will use him again next year.

"Kept the Children Engaged"

Steve performed a "pop up" walking magic show along the park for our festival and kept the children curious and engaged for 2 hours.  Highly recommend!

"Outstanding performance for 50 kids of all ages."

Very easy to talk to and plan. He doesn't require much from logistics. He brings his own table, A/V, etc. It required 1 phone conversation and an exchange of a couple emails with Steve to plan within 2 weeks (he does get booked up). He doesn't overbook or overcommit more than a couple performances in a day, so you don't have to worry about him running late or rushing out afterwards.

Ours was a large event 200+ people with more than 50 kids. Ages of the kids ranged from infant to 10 years old. His acts involved the kids as well as some of the adults (who enjoyed as well!), and was able to keep them engaged for about 45 minutes (we put a time limit as we needed to vacate the hall). Some kids were rowdy and trying to grab the mic, but he stayed cool and was able to keep them under control while continuing the show. We couldn't be happier and a few of our guests asked for his contact info because of how awesome they thought it was.  Thanks, Steve!

Steve ROCKS!

From the second the magic show started the kids were excited and engaged until the end. Steve knows how to handle and communicate with kids. We are glad he performed at our 6 year old's birthday party. We will definitely recommend him to friends.

Best Magician Around!

I called Steve at the last minute on Sunday. He was able to fulfill my request on short notice. I am glad he did. It was the best magic show I've ever done for my kids. He is a true professional, clever, funny and the whole show was outstanding. The kids loved it and so did the adults. Try him, you won't regret it.

Great show for my 4 year old son!

My 4 year old son and his 24 friends enjoyed the show so much. Steve came early had everything organized and I could tell right away he had so much experience. I give Steve 5 stars.

A great, non-diva entertainer!

Steve did a great job at our son's 6th birthday party. The kids were enthralled the entire time. And he was nice and flexible and wasn't a diva like some other children's performers I've hired. I've seen and/or hired several magicians in the area, and Steve was by far the best and most pleasant to work with.

Absolutely amazing performance!

Steve did an absolutely amazing performance at my son's birthday party. All 24 kids were just spellbound, and it was surprisingly entertaining for the parents in attendance as well. The whole experience in hiring him was easy--he promptly confirmed the reservation, showed up ahead of time to set up (even in the middle of a snow storm)and was incredibly professional to deal with. He whipped the audience into a frenzy with his show and the kids in my son's class are still talking about it! He really made my son's birthday and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking to make their event exciting.

We had Steve perform at a year-end party for our Special Olympics team. Our athletes, siblings, parents and mentors all loved him and his show was appropriate for all. The kids were fascinated and engaged by his illusions and were really engaged in the show. Parents loved it as well! Steve was very patient and tuned in to the kids and truly entertained everyone in the room!

We are big fans of Steve Kish! He came out to our fundraising event to provide entertainment prior to the start of the show. Several attendees commented to me that he was indeed quite "amazing" as he performed assorted illusions. The parents appreciated the rapport he was able to build with their children and I heard "how did he do that?" gasps from several of the adults. Steve was a real pleasure to work with and we would recommend him if you are looking for a magician for your next event.

Steve recently completed a performance at my adult only Halloween Party. His suggestion was to perform "strolling illusions" and it was simply perfect! Once Steve's availability was confirmed, nothing else was required on my part to ensure this entertainment choice would be a hit. All Steve had to do was show up, which he did promptly! Upon arrival Steve immediately begin entertaining small groups of guests with unique and unbelievable illusions. He even amazed my most doubtful and critical guest! Steve was friendly, professional and highly engaging. He exceeded my highest expectations and would hire him again without a second thought!
Steve, thank you so much for making my Halloween party a hit with all my friends! I can't wait until my next special occasion and what type of performance you might suggest! You will CERTAINLY hear from me when I schedule my next event! Thank you again!

The magic show was great - the children loved it. Kish captivated the audience, all ages. The school-age (summer camp) children were still talking about the magic show days later, so it was obvious they really enjoyed the experience. The best part about working with Steve Kish was that he was very professional; arriving on time, putting on an entertaining show, and most importantly, really involving the children in the whole show/process.

He is fabulous !!!

We had Steve Kish at a birthday party for a 5 yr old & her friends. AND he put on a real fun show ! The kids were of course, absolutely thrilled by the high energy performance that Steve does. But what was really great was that the adults were equally engrossed. He has a very good repertoire of tricks and he is very deft at engaging all sections of the audience. We had atleast one older kid in the show, who was very intent on "exposing" the tricks as "not magic". Steve played up to this, very cleverly using him to build up the ante. This added to the excitement of the smaller kids and the entertainment of the adults. We were really happy with the whole show. After the show, he stayed a bit to do a couple of great tricks just for the adults.

Steve is very professional, was quite prompt in replying to all our emails as we were hiring him and very honest in all his responses to our many queries. We will certainly hire him again. Get him if you can; you wont regret it.

-Chris Rim Photography: "While covering a birthday party I had the pleasure of meeting Steve Kish the magician. I've seen a few magicians at kids birthday parties in the past and they have always been less than impressive. I was really impressed with Steve! His 30+ years of experience really showed, very smooth sleight of hand and he made everything look seamless and easy. He did a great job of getting the kids and parents involved in the magic show, all eyes were on him. I'm a big fan of magic, so it was a wonderful to get hang out and watch a great magic show while I worked. If you're in the market for a magician, I highly recommend him, give him a call!"
