About
Steven Paul Carlson has been the premiere sleight of hand magician in the upper Midwest for over 40 years.

Steven's elegant and entertaining magical performance includes the classic items like playing cards, silver dollars, and the cups and balls. However Steven takes magic to the next level by producing a 12” coin, a 5 pound lump of coal and a real Bowling Ball!

Recently back from Las Vegas, NV., Steven performed as the resident close-up magician at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. Steven is now available to perform his unique magic at your event.

Whatever your entertainment needs may be; a corporate or private event, for promotion or gathering a crowd, Steven's stunning magic will make your party or event unforgettable.

It's magic that will mystify your mind, enrich your soul and delight your heart.

Quotes from Magic Show clientele:

“It was amazing to have a world-class professional perform at our event, and he even tailored his performance to fit our theme.” - R. Ausland

“We booked Steven Carlson for a corporate party of about 50 guests and he was the star or the evening.” - E. Burgeson

“Steven came to our Halloween party and he was AMAZING! Everyone was mystified and drawn into the theater and wonder that Steven created.” - H. Stewart

“If you are looking for a total pro to entertain and wow your guests, look no further. Steven Carlson is a top notch magician, skilled performer, and magic historian.” - Sparkle Theatricals

"This was, hands down, the best decision we could have made to hire Steven Paul Carlson for our event!  I would completely recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment.  Our clients, being all adults, were skeptical of a magician at first but about 10 seconds into interacting with him, they were astonished and felt a joy overtake them!  He is amazing to talk to, watch and just spending time around him was a pleasure!  I can not wait to do business with him, in the future, and as I know he will always be a hit! "    - M. White, Vice President SFACC

I hired Steven for my 50th birthday party and he dazzled and delighted our group of about 20 with close-up magic. Not only does he have exceptional talent as a magician, but also an innate flair for storytelling with a poet's heart. Steven is really beyond star ratings -- he is on the unicorn plane of rare greatness.

This was, hands down, the best decision we could have made to hire Steven Paul Carlson for our charity event! I would completely recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment. Our clients, being all adults, were skeptical of a magician at first but about 10 seconds into interacting with him, they were astonished and felt a joy overtake them! He is amazing to talk to, watch and just spending time around him was a pleasure! I can not wait to do business with him, in the future, and as I know he will always be a hit!

We had Steven Paul Carlson come to a small bachelor/bachelorette we had for my friends and he was AMAZING. He was very professional and arrived to our location in time. The magic he performed was insanely entertaining, astonishing even. He catered his act to the eclectic audience we had, and had the bride and groom participate in a couple tricks. Everyone was extremely satisfied with his performance. I highly recommend Steven Paul Carlson for any event. Definitely exceeded my expectations.

Stephen was easy to work with from the very beginning. He responded to all of our questions promptly and was willing to tailor his show to our group, both in terms of its size and age. (We had a group of about 80 Girl Scouts.) The girls LOVED the show, and the parents who were there told me how impressed they were with Stephen and thought it was perfect for our "Carnival" themed camp. I would hire Stephen again and will recommend him to others looking for this type of talent.

Steven is the consummate professional. I hired him to do close up magic for a small group of friends at a party. How did he do THAT was the most often asked question as he made coins disappear from our hands, showed us why we should never play three card monte, etc. All this while we were just a couple of feet away. Great patter too. He was punctual, polite and interesting to chat with- he's an artist (did courtroom illustrations for a TV station for a while) and was the house magician at Excalibur in Las Vegas. As you can tell I was extremely pleased with his performance and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.
