You can often conjecture how well a magic show will play out just by taking a glance around the theatre. As I scanned the room for the best available seats, I couldn’t help but notice the demographics of the crowd; while there was a wide array of ages in attendance, there was definitely a large amount of children. While this isn’t necessarily a negative fact, I was initially concerned that either the magic would be catered to those who are younger or the act would struggle with child volunteers. I am pleased to say that I was proven wrong.

Our evening began with an introduction from the show’s “sponsor”, a Mr. N. S. A. touting the omnipresence of suggestive advertising and personal data collection. This small dip into suggestibility would be a common theme running through the evening. Haydini then presented us with the set up for an excellent reveal at the end of the show. Following this he quickly delved into a myriad of entertaining and well-executed sets, varying from sleight-of-hand to feats of mentalism. Each reveal earned him well deserved applause, impressing even the most discerning of audience members.

Haydini certainly excelled in incorporating the audience into his acts. He allowed individuals to choose whether they would like to participate, as opposed to selecting members who may be uncomfortable in the spotlight. Our magician worked well with each volunteer regardless of their age, which I’m sure you can guess is no easy task. His skill in improvisation allowed for him to adapt and make a situation comic that may have become awkward in the hands of a less skilled performer.

His improv skills certainly came of use during the show, as there were many times his technician was having issues with sound and light cues, which probably could have been fixed with a bit more rehearsing. While it did detract from the show a bit, Haydini managed each blip professionally and didn’t let the technical difficulties steal the show.

Ultimately, Haydini provides a fun, entertaining show that holds your attention throughout the entire evening. I would recommend his show to family and friends of all ages. The variety of his performance and the skill to which it was executed was captivating and attested to his prowess as a magician and performer. As he so aptly stated, “Anybody can cut you in half, but only a magician can put you back together.”

  • Hayden was none less than SPECTACULAR !
    The illusions he performed were amazing, but his interaction with the crowd really made the show. Our audience were teenagers and he was never frazzled by them. Also, it started raining halfway through the show and he moved his act indoors and never missed a beat. He is a true professional. Every one at the party was amazed!
    Highly recommended to enhance any occasion!!

  • Each summer our company hosts a picnic for employees and their families.  This year we enlisted the help of Haydini to make our picnic memorable.His show was great.  The children were enthralled.  Adults were amused and mystified.   Volunteers went onstage to assist in tricks, but even those who didn’t go up were captivated by the show.



Hayden brought everything he needed, the only thing we provided was a space for him to set up and plug in.  And when weather forced us to change that space, he was able to adapt and go with itWe got lots of compliments on the picnic this year, specifically on Hayden’s show.   And a lot of “How did he do that?” questions too!


 I would definitely recommend Haydini for a corporate event.  He showed up when he was supposed to, and made it easy on me because he brought everything with him.  He was entertaining for all ages, had family friendly humor, and puts on a great show.

  • “Hayden performed for our annual company picnic in May. The children were amazed by him; not moving until the completion of his show. The adults that wandered over out of curiosity were quickly captivated by Hayden’s enthusiasm and showmanship. This picnic had over 200 attendees with simultaneous attractions for our guests’ entertainment. Hayden’s corner did not lose the interest of any guest, even that of the out of town upper management!”

  • We had Hayden at the Kings Drive Art Walk in April.  He was very professional! We were very pleased with his performance, and everyone else was also!

  • “I’ve seen Hayden perform at three college shows now and each time his performance has been unique, amazing, and very funny! A class act, he is able to keep the crowd entertained with ease whether it’s through his magic or natural flare for comedy. While his talent for magic is impressive, his ability to be personable with the audience and make them feel comfortable with being on stage is just as equally impressive! I highly recommend Hayden for shows of any size as I have seen him perform for crowds ranging from 50 to over 300 people.”

  • “Hayden had a 1:00am performance at our Relay For Life event. He was very personable, his magic was impressive, and his jokes kept us laughing! The crowd was one of all ages and Hayden had us all awake, involved, and captivated! We highly recommend Hayden for your event!”

  • “4000 characters may not be enough to say what a great show Hayden put on for my son and his friends. We had a crowd of about 25 people ranging in age from 3 to 60+ and Hayden kept everyone entertained! His up-close magic is flawless and his humor kept us all laughing. I highly recommend Hayden for any occasion and I promise you will not be disappointed!”

  • Hayden was excellent for our event. It was a 25 yr anniversary for my wife and I. Hayden entertained everyone from the young to the old and for his grand finally he used my wife as an assistant and in a firey flash presented her with a diamond ring from me. The presentation for the ring was awesome. I hope to be able to use Hayden again in the future.

  • Our experience with Haydini was great from start to finish! Hayden communicated with me before the event & tailored his visit to exactly what we were looking for. My daughter loved her private magic lesson before the show. He spent over an hour with her explaining & practicing the tricks he taught her. His magic show was a hit with the kids & adults. He even took the time to walk around and do some magic with small groups after the show. Hayden is a great guy & I would recommend him to anyone looking for a magician. He was the perfect choice for my daughter’s 11th birthday party!

  • Haydini contacted me immediately once I’d entered a request on Gigmasters and was quite accommodating and affordable for our event and budget. This was a senior prom and he fit in perfectly with his wit, talent and energy. He arrived on time, entertained the crowd throughout his ‘shift’ and often left the students in awe with his talent. His attire and youth made it so that the prom goers didn’t expect to see such magic coming out of him. I highly recommend him.
