Hello ,

Thank you for your request regarding your child‘s birthday party. Planning your child's birthday is an important event. You want it to be special but also within a budget. You want an entertainer that takes control of the party so you can just relax, take it easy & enjoy yourself.

My name is David Black and I’ve been making children’s birthday parties fun, entertaining and unforgettable for over 35 years. One of the greatest compliments I’ve received was when Ryan DeLap of Johnson City asked me to perform at his daughter’s birthday party (he remembered what a blast he had when I performed at his birthday in 1992!).

You see, I’m gratified to be invited back, time and time again, by parents for each of their children’s parties. Things change through the years (fashion, gas prices, waist lines) and though the contents of my show may have changed over the years to stay fresh and relevant… the fun remains the same.

My approach to performing for kids and their families is simple. Treat everyone with respect and have fun. Often I have been told after a show that it looked like I was having as much fun as the kids!

At this point, you’re probably wondering what happens during your child‘s magic birthday show.   The Basic Birthday Party Package consists of a 40 minute comedy, audience participation magic show perfect for children aged 5 to 10 years old.

Your child is the Star of the Show!

Your child is featured in many of the tricks. I do the magic and he gets the applause. This makes him feel very special being in front of all the other children helping the magician perform magic. Now sometimes the birthday boy can be a little shy the day of his party. No problem. Then he gets to choose which friends help out during the show.


And since it is an audience participation show, all the kids are engaged in some way. This is important because, as you know, kids don’t want to just sit and watch a show, they want to be involved and feel like they’re participating in the magic. The kids really believe they are making the magic happen! As I leave parties, I see kids often mimicking the magic they just experienced during the show!

At one point in the show I actually make your child disappear!  Don’t worry, I don’t really make his person disappear.  I have you send me a picture of your child, which I copy and put on a CD or playing card. That’s what I make disappear.  You can imagine his surprise when I pull out the picture and say, “This is the person I’m going to make disappear!”  I put his picture in a box and then have fun with the kids as they think they hear the picture rolling back and forth in the box.  But it really does disappear – only to be found hanging on my back. The kids have a riot and your child gets to keep the new magic picture.



My Deluxe Birthday Package features an additional magic trick; the appearance of a live bunny!

At the end of the show I have the birthday child come up.  I lend the birthday child my magic wand,and with one last wave of the magic wand Bette appears!  Bette is a friendly live bunny with the softest fur you’ll ever feel. The look on the kid’s faces is priceless when they see him perform this. And yes, every child gets a chance to pet the bunny to make sure its real. It’s the perfect time to take a photo to share with your friends and family and have a keepsake that you’ll cherish forever.

THE DELUXE PACKAGE at $240 + travel fee, which is only $45.00 more, is our most popular package, because it saves time & money and the memories are priceless!  It includes the 40 minute magic show, the special magical appearance of Bette the Bunny, a  Magic Set and activity book for the birthday child, and complimentary goody bags for up to twenty guests (additional bags can be purchased for only $3 each). The goody bags include magic tricks and other fun items but do not include any candy or food items so you don’t have to worry about food allergies.

Please keep in mind that I’m one of the busiest entertainers in the Twin Tiers. I can only accept a limited number of engagements and work on a first come, first serve basis. So to avoid disappointment, don’t delay and request your date now and myself or my assistant Teddi will get in touch and let you know if your preferred time is available. Thanks !
