A full-time fantasy author by trade (with over 30 years of entertaining readers under his belt) James M brings his flair for other periods and places to his magic.
What kind of magic does he do?
James is a party entertainer inspired by the magicians of old. While many modern magicians are inspired by more contemporary aesthetics (think: Chris Angel’s rock-and-roll look or Penn and Teller’s business suites), James has a charm that twinkles. With a top hat, his signature mustache, and a Victorian suit, his preferred magic is recognizable: cards, rings, rope, and everyday objects that make his magic feel timeless.
What kind of parties he best at?
James is versatile but, like his look, his magic is classic. Children who are fascinated with magic often find him an absolutely mystical figure; adults throwing a banquet or looking for more subtle entertainment appreciate that his signature style is almost decorative. But, of course, he loves everything from project graduation entertainment to college event ideas.
James is based in New Hampshire but travels all over Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New York State.
Is there anything scary?
Nope! We like to explain him to clients as “old-timey and charming”. Kids often find him more approachable than younger magicians, and his tricks are all family-friendly.
Does he do a kids’ show?
James’s specialty is classic magic, which is suitable for all ages. If your child is fascinated with magic or an aspiring magician themselves (we know plenty!) James is the perfect fit for your party–he’s warm, approachable, and frankly looks about as friendly as Santa himself. But if you’re looking for something else, check out all of the magicians we have available.
Does he have any costumes?
Unless specified, James will come in his typical Victorian magician’s suit. However, James is also available to work as a Rennaisance magician or Santa, both pictured below.
As Santa, James is a member of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas–the world’s largest organization of professional Santas.
