When you are working to hire a new york magician for your kids party (and it is work), there is one way that you don’t want to take. You don’t want to take this way because it is a guarantee for failure. If you hire this kind of magician, and he comes to your party, you are destined for disappointment. There is one word you want to avoid like the plague, and that is “both”. As in “I am both a clown and a magician”. This means only one thing; that they can’t make a go of it as a magician alone. To entertain children with magic is not easy, and it takes determination and commitment to do it well. Finding a magician that fits this description is difficult, but worth the effort.
