SLEIGHT OF HAND MAGICIAN
A TOP MAGICIAN SERVING BURLINGTON, VERMONT AND ALBANY, NY
Expert Sleight of Hand Magician
I've trained with some of the best magicians in the world and have dedicated the last 15 years to mastering this complex skill. I don't do the kind of magic you can buy off the shelf -- the magic you'll see me perform is the real deal.
Family Friendly Entertainer
My magic is uniquely perfect for all ages. Although my shows are designed for adults, I am also careful to select material that children will love as much as the adults do. I guarantee you that every age group will be laughing and amazed.
I've performed a variant of my show over 1000 times. I spent years as a Street Theater magician, perfecting my craft in the most challenging of environments, all around the country. With me, you get all the skill and excitement you expect from a New-Orleans street performance.
I'm timely and professional. My comedy is absolutely family-friendly.
Upfront Pricing and Easy Booking!
I offer either either 1.) a theatrical show suitable for 2 to 100 people or 2.) tableside and "mingling" close up magic for your guests or clients during a cocktail hour or reception. My show is about forty minutes in length, and if you book me for "strolling magic" I perform for one to four hours depending on the number of guests and the event schedule.
Most people have never seen a magician in real life. After they see me, they may never see another one. It is my goal to make sure that I provide an experience viewers take with them for the rest of their lives. However, more importantly, I am there to make you look good. I elevate the energy at parties. I help guests to "let their hair down," to create an environment of fun, and to help new acquaintances break the ice. I want your guests to say, "Who's awesome idea was it to hire this magician?!"
Here are just several ways in which I can serve your needs:
SMALL PRIVATE SHOWS
This is ideal for a small birthday party, anniversary celebration, or any time small groups of friends and family are gathering to celebrate. I perform my forty minute show in your living room or backyard. Family shows for children's birthday parties also fall into this category.

An Amazing Addition to Our Party
Alyx’s relaxed demeanor but super fun dialogue had all the kids and adults captivated! She was funny and the right amount of silly, and her magic tricks were SO GREAT! The birthday girl got a souvenir, which she already believes is her most prized possession because it has, “real magic” in it. Alyx’s show was an amazing addition to our party- she is very calm and go-with-the-flow and easy to work with. Her show was super entertaining and just the right amount of magic- not the sparkly and glam kind, but the mysterious and awe-inspiring kind... a treat.
Nina B., party host
Alyx's performance was humorous, exciting, and ultimately made the audience believe, briefly, in the supernatural.
We had Alyx come to our farm to perform a magic show for our homeschool group. While we expected the children to be amazed, we did not anticipate that all the parents would spend the rest of the afternoon raving about the magic show.
Appeals to both young and old!
She appeals to both young and old and connects well with each person who comes to see her. She is a true professional as a magician and her performance is astounding and awe inspiring.
Angela Reese, Saucon Valley Farmers Market, Manager
Alyx was awesome!
She was so well received by both youth and adults. She roamed effortlessly among small groups at our party and her performance for the teens was terrific.
Sally M. , Client
I Highly Recommend
I was looking for entertainment for my function and hired Alyx. It was the best move I made. The show was great and kept all ages entertained. Alyx is very professional and the correspondence was great up to the show. She showed up on time and was engaging to everyone. I highly recommend.
Gary Schuyler, Past District Deputy Grand Master, Doylestown Masonic Lodge
The perfect large or small group live entertainment!
Alyx’s performance was spectacular, and the talk of our party! Such positive feedback from the children AND the equal amount of attending adults! Her style and execution, sense of humor, and “tricks” kept us both engaged and on the edge of our seats at times...I had to share her contact info over and over in the days following our birthday gathering! Book her now, no question.
Alyx made a memorable party
We recently booked Alyx the magician for a surprise birthday dinner party (adults only) & couldn't be more pleased! We wanted something different for this event since everyone has been in a covid slumber - so my search started for a magician! Alyx was responsive from the get-go during our correspondence & arrived on time for the event. When we had to delay the show due to the venue still serving drinks/food, she was patient about the whole thing. I don't want to give away too many details, but she had several mini "acts" including the rings, card maneuvers, and the coins. The grand finale was by far the best AND she included the guest of honor in the performance..... and he is still missing. Haha Just kidding. This was a memorable party - Thanks again Alyx! God bless you. :-)
Alyx was fantastic!
She provided excitement & fun to our open house! The magic was great, her interaction with people was great, engaging & confident!
Kim R., Client
Review from Colleague and Friend
Alyx is the definition of a complete magician. Professional, funny, dedicated and perfect in all aspects of the art. If you haven’t seen her perform before, you’re in for a treat - MAGIC IN IT’S BEST AND PUREST FORM.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What COVID Precautions does Alyx take?
Does Alyx's Magic appeal to adults and children?
Yes! Alyx is a family friendly entertainer. Her humor is fun and funny to both adults and children -- best of all, the act is completely clean. The magic is accomplished through raw sleight of hand skill that adults love and appreciate but also feels very magical to both adults and children.
Alyx is not, however, a children specific entertainer. The ideal minimum age is about five years old. Younger children will enjoy the show, but some aspects may be "over their head." If you are looking for a child specific entertainer, give Alyx a call anyway. She can help you in your search for a quality entertainer at no cost.
When and how do I pay
You may pay by cash, check, or paypal prior to the start of the show or immediately after the show.
Can Alyx actually bend forks with her mind such that the strongest person at the event cannot unbend the fork?
It is true that I bend silverware right in front of your eyes in a way that seems utterly supernatural. It is also true that, working together, we will be able to cause silverware to bend and twist in your own hands without me touching it. This is not accomplished with trick silverware, tools, gimmicks, or anything other than my mental energy and my hands. And it is also true that not one of your guests will be able to untwist the silverware that has been twisted, right in their hands, through apparently very magical methods. It's a blast. :)
Are there any hidden fees
My fee is a flat fee that includes materials, set up, and travel within one driving hour of the 18055 zip code.
If your event is further than one hour of driving distance from Springtown, PA, I charge $30 per additional hour of driving time (including return trip, pro-rated). If an overnight stay is required, I charge hotel rates dependent on the location. These fees are included in the corporate quotes as a flat fee.
