For John Wolfson, the show began years ago when he became fascinated with entertaining. In 1995 at the age of six, John commandeered his older sister's magic kit and began learning. It wasn't long before he was performing wherever he could find an audience.

His passion for magic kindled, John continued to study the art of magic under local professionals and amateurs. In 2003, he joined the International Brotherhood of Magicians, the world's largest magic organization. He also attended the McBride Magic and Mystery School in Las Vegas, studying under renowned magicians Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger, Lance Burton and Mac King. He studied theater at the State University College at Oswego and decided to pursue his dream of being a professional magician.

John has been performing professionally in Central New York since 2007. He has traveled and performed in Israel, Peru, Canada, the Dominican Republic and most recently, China. In 2011, John was elected the youngest president of the Salt City Magic Club. He performs more than 100 shows across New York State each year. John is constantly learning new magic and incorporating fresh material into his shows.

We used Magical John for a few of our client events. He was professional, showed up on time and joined in as part of our marketing team. His ability to assess the crowd and change his performance to what we needed was a great asset to our events. I would highly recommend him to other event planners.

Magical John showed us a great professionalism. In addition to his high-skilled performance, what we were very impressed was his attitude to serve to his clients and guests - kids at the party. He was willing to meet some kids' extensive requests and made all the kids happy. Thank you, John. I really appreciated it and realized that our decision to invite you as a special guest was a right one. Yasuhiro

Magical John did a great job at the party - people loved the part with the their own ring on the string and fire!

Magical John fit perfectly with the theme and population of our program. The audience could relate to him and enjoyed his performance. He was friendly and inclusive. While some of his material could use professional development, we found that overall his presentation was just what we needed for this event. Thanks to all.

John arrived at the correct time, the show was entertaining, have to admit that a party for 5 yr olds can be a tough crowd. The only negative is that he did not ask who was the birthday boy. Overall it was a good experience.

Magical John!’s Response:

Jay, I totally appreciate your feedback. In regards to the name of the birthday child, you're absolutely right. I will be putting a new field into my paperwork to make sure I get this right from here on out. As far as holding the attention of 5 year olds, I usually have a tighter grip on the reigns by putting the kids in rows in front of the performance space. I will be giving clients space diagrams. I will be contacting you to discuss how to resolve this less than perfect experience.
