The Keys To Entertaining Your Guests…
Even after you see this you won’t believe it. You will be left scratching your head and wondering if magic ctually exists… and so will your guests!
A Sense Of Humor
You’ll be thrilled as you hear your guests laugh and see all of their smiles during my funny interactions with them throughout the event.
Everything I do involves your guests. You know how people are; They don’t just want to sit and watch, they want to experience it for themselves!
Strolling Close-Up Magic
Typically during most events, there is a social hour before dinner is served. This is the perfect time to have Todd Nelson perform his interactive up close magic. This is magic performed for small groups of people who are sitting at tables or standing and socializing. Each mini performance typically lasts 5-10 minutes. This varies with size of group and length of performance time. This type of performance is great because it doesn’t stop the overall event from continuing on. It’s also nice to have something happening right when the event begins so there’s an energy in the air.
Most people see magic on tv or from a far away stage in Las Vegas, and have never experienced seeing magic this close.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the technical requirements for the performance?
For a Close-up, Strolling Magic performance, there are no technical requirements. Everything Todd needs is self contained.
For both the Magic & Comedy and the Escape & Illusion shows, a raised platform or stage with stairs on both sides is recommended. Since there is a lot of audience participation, the guests need to be able to get on and off the stage easily and safely.
A microphone system is also needed, but Todd usually can bring his own. This varies venue to venue.
My group is very diverse, are you able to entertain a group with a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, ages, etc.?
Todd’s very lucky because magic and clean humor is universally appealing. Unlike music for example where it’s impossible to please everyone, engaging magic & audience interaction is always a hit! Toddhas been entertaining guests of all ages, status levels, ethnic backgrounds for over 25 years. He’s even entertained at events with guests who didn’t speak English and yet they still had a blast with Todd’s unique entertainment.
