“Steve performed in my daughter’s birthday party and he is ‘the best magician ever’ as she said. Steve is very professional, arrived early to set up, had great energy not only with the kids, but with all the grown ups as well. Had many tricks up his sleeve that amazed everyone, and the kids talked about them for the rest of the day. Steve is very accommodating, very responsive and easy to work with. He made the day!! Thanks Steve :)”

Greenbelt news review

Greenbelt Recreation Department treated seniors and others to an afternoon of magic on February 14.  Although the program was advertised for those 60 years and up, about 50 magic lovers of all ages were enthralled by magician Steve Kish.  Kish encouraged everyone in the audience to participate in his card tricks.  The children were enthusiastic particpants in his magic out-of-the-hat tricks includeing at least one beautiful white bunny.  There was lots of laughter and applause, and a great time was had by all.

Priya Gardner of Greenbelt, Maryland writes on 2/15/2024:

"What a whimsical and wonderful Magician!  Right from the set up, Steve Kish came in with a positively contagious attitude that immediately filled the room with magical energy.  I had him come and perform at an intergenerational valentines day event and he did not disappoint.  His show is interactive and puzzeling.  Of course, Gizmo the Rabbit was the hit of the show, but, generously shared the attention with Steve."

Steve was very responsive and easy to communicate with during the planning phase, arrived with plenty of time to set up before the scheduled time, and delivered a top notch performance. Highly recommend!”

The best birthday magic show

“We are so thrilled with Steve’s magic performance at my daughter’s 8th birthday party. We had about 10 kids ages 3 to 12. He invited each one to come up and do a trick with him. He also included a few of the parents in his show. He was absolutely hilarious and high energy, with fantastic and believable magic. And the highlight was his bunny act - pulling a real bunny out of his hat and then giving each child the opportunity to pet and take photos with the bunny. Steve was also very professional - he was easy to organize the event with, showed up long before the act started to set up, and then hung out for a few minutes to chat and discuss his career. (The parents had so many questions!)  Steve made our party and we highly recommend him!”

There were lots of smiling faces and even the teachers got to participate!

A Memorable 6th Birthday Party Thanks to Kish The Magish!

What a great show! Kish The Magish did a wonderful job tailoring his show for a kindergarten audience of 22 kids at our son’s 6th birthday party. He held their complete attention the entire time which is pretty amazing at this age! All the kids were smiling and laughing as Kish performed one of the best magic shows I’ve ever witnessed. Everyone was in awe! If you’re looking for a great time, be it for kids or adults, birthday party or corporate event, Kish The Magish makes magic and great memories happen!

Steve's energy is his strength. It is not often you see sixteen 4-8 year olds attention on one person for a solid hour. He is funny, engaging and of course a great illusionist. He clearly loves what he does. Book him, you will not be disappointed.

Best Birthday Party Ever!

I hired Steve based solely on these reviews here, we didn't know anyone who had seen his act so we were a little skeptical but he did not disappoint! Steve was so professional throughout the hiring process and he is incredibly amusing and really has his act down to a science. He was able to capture the attention of 19, seven-year-old children for an entire hour, without a dull moment. There were lots of laughs, this is sure to be a special memory for our children and for all of the children and adults that attended.

The kids were mesmerized!

We hired "Kish" the magician for our daughter's 7th birthday party and we were thrilled with our decision! Steve showed up as promised a half an hour before the show and was ready to roll once the children all arrived. His level of professionalism and talent as well as his level of energy were top notch! We will certainly look forward to working with him again in the future and would whole heartedly recommend him to anyone! Thank you Kish for making our little girl's party a huge success!!

“I can’t say enough good things about Steve Kish. I had the task of organising the children’s Holiday Party at the Embassy of Australia. We had children from 0-11 plus all of their parents, somehow Steve managed to entertain them all. There was plenty of audience participation, lots of laughs and magic that kept everyone entertained. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steve Kish, he was an absolute pleasure to work with. I’ll be booking next year’s party very soon.”

We booked Kish for a birthday/Halloween party for our 7 year old. We were absolutely LUCKY to get him! He showed up on time, set up quietly and was patient as we waited for a few more guests to arrive. Immediately he got the audience involved and grabbed our attention. The kids were fascinated as were the adults. The show was at least 45 minutes though I think we went a little longer as guests arrived a bit late and he wanted them to see a trick or two which I greatly appreciated. My friends grabbed up his cards at the end. My son still hasn't stopped talking about it, he says he thinks he is still "hypnotized"! He also has been spending time on the internet trying to figure out the dollar bill trick! I can't thank Kish enough for making our event extra special.

My 4 year olds Birthday Party:  My wife and I were very happy with Steve Kish's Magic show for our 4 year old son. He showed up early and was ready to go, he was very accomodating to us and was very professional. He worked a crowd of kids from 2 to 12 years old and incorporated all of them in the show, including myself and some of the parents. Most notable is that he was able to get my shy and socially challenged son to come up and be a part of his act a few times. It really made the party. Thank you Steve!

Great BIrthday Show.  

We hired Kish for my daughter's 8th birthday. I was skeptical the kids could sit still for an hour, but he was able to keep the kids attention from the moment he started straight through the entire performance. Kish was prompt and was very engaging. In addition I loved that he incorporated many of the kids into the program, with special attention given to the birthday girl. Definitely recommended!

I think everyone enjoyed the performance! The children were delighted and the best part of my day was hearing the shrieks and giggles from all the kids. Your level of energy was great. You are a true entertainer, which you have to be with these little ones. My husband liked that you asked for adult participants at the end and your sense of humor appealed to all the parents, too.  It was a pleasure to communicate with you. It was clear during our phone conversation that you were very professional and had been doing this a long time. I liked that you said you never book more than two shows a day, and also that you seemed very clear as to what ages liked what kinds of shows. (This was all important to me, not having seen you in person or heard any firsthand reviews.) And I appreciated your prompt replies to emails/messages. 

Many thanks again!

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.

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.

"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 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 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!"
