SLEIGHT OF HAND MAGICIAN
A TOP MAGICIAN IN BUCKS COUNTY AND LEHIGH VALLEY
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 focused on 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 900 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 primarily offer "stand-up" shows suitable for 2 to 100 people. My show is forty minutes in length. 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. I combine dazzling skill with a fun, funny personality into routines that leave people laughing, gasping, and in awe.
Here are just several ways in which I can serve your needs:
During the Spring and Summer of 2021, I am offering casual performances, which are perfect for single families or very small groups (up to 8 people) who are hungry for live entertainment during the covid era. If you are tired of monotonous evenings of Netflix or scrolling on social media, then my performance, combined with take-out and drinks, will certainly be an unforgettably fun experience!

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!

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?
My show is "Minimal Touch." Audience members may be asked to select and sign a playing card, and I ask another audience member to sign and allow me to borrow a monetary bill. I offer the choice to bend a fork in my hand or to allow an audience member to hold the fork while it is bent in their own hands. Otherwise, I keep a distance of six feet or more from your guests.
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. The magic is accomplished through raw sleight of hand skill that adults 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."
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 I am able to cause the silverware to bend and twist in your 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.
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.
What is the difference between backyard mini-shows, private events, and corporate shows
Backyard mini-shows are very casual. My attire is casual. This is an awesome and entertaining show, however, this is not a formal show. I arrive 10 minutes early to meet you and to set up. In exchange for the low rate I sometimes add one "new" routine, in which your audience may be the first to witness the performance in a live show.
The Private Event show is more formal than the backyard mini-show, but it is expected that these shows are primarily for social events among larger groups of friends and family. I believe magic should be accessible to everyone, so this show is discounted for the smaller budgets of individuals who are organizing events. I also stay after the show for at least fifteen minutes to meet your guests and perhaps display a small amount of "close up magic." Many people have never met a real magician in the flesh, and these conversations can be interesting and memorable. This rate is not for corporate events. I arrive 20 minutes early to set up and to meet you.
The Corporate Show is a formal show with formal attire and presentation. That doesn't mean it isn't fun, though! It is possible that aspects of the show can be altered slightly to deliver corporate messaging. For an additional fee, it is also possible to develop a custom show for stronger corporate messaging. Please let me know at the time of booking if you wish to include any corporate messaging in the show. I arrive one hour early to set up for corporate bookings.
