So you’ve decided to host a virtual magic show for your company’s employees or a birthday party, and you clearly know that the magician is the most important part of any magic show.
Whether live or virtual, since he or she keeps the audience engaged with his or her humor and tricks. But why should you employ a magician in the first place? There are a few things to consider before hiring a magician for your virtual meeting.
The type of audience the magician is used to will have a big influence on the virtual magic show you can expect.
Audiences are often divided into three groups:
So, if you’re unsure, we recommend hiring a zoom comedian for a mostly adult crowd. They’ll also be able to accommodate your younger visitors.
2. Event Type
This is determined by the sort of event you are hosting. A family gathering will inevitably differ from a corporate one. Decide on the tone of the party and use that to guide your decision on whether or not to hire a magician.
3. Event Size
If you hire a magician for mix and mingle magic, they will be able to entertain 100 people in two hours on average. If you have a larger group, consider putting on stage performance or hiring an extra magician.
So it’s important to choose a magician that can satisfy the size of the audience.
4. Show Videos
Before hiring a magician, it’s a good idea to look up their performance videos on the internet so you can decide whether the magician is a good fit for your event.
You surely want to know if the magician’s presentation or performances were well received by the crowd. Ideally, you’d want to obtain a personal recommendation.
This isn’t always doable, though. You might seek testimonials and reviews as a compromise.
6. Able To Boost Audience
Your virtual magic show will only be a big success if your audience gets involved. So, what role does the magician play in ensuring that your guests arrive on time? Is the magician solely interested in putting on a show?
The way a magician replies to this question will tell you whether or not he is the right fit for you. What you need to think about is if they’ve thought about the flow of their performance or whether they’re just executing trick after trick.
