Renting A Magician on Long Island

Are you looking to rent a magician on Long Island? Why rent when you can own? Be the envy of your neighbors when you put your very own magician on your front lawn, or mount him over your fireplace.


Seriously, I was just going through my Google Analytics and checking to see what keywords people use to find my website. "Rent a magician on Long Island" came up.


It made me wonder about the type of person who'd type in "rent" a magician. Then it hit me. I know exactly who typed that in! The most obnoxious client I've ever had.


I've been a magician for over 30 years ... I've met a number of obnoxious people, but this guy took the cake!


He calls me, "Listen, we're having people over for Passover - I want you to entertain the kids from 7:30 to 11 pm." I tried to tell him that was a bad idea. No kid wants to watch magic for 3 1/2 hours. But, he offered cash. It was a Tuesday night, nothing else to do ... OK, why not?


You'd think this guy would offer me some basic courtesy. He's serving dinner upstairs, you'd think he could offer me a plate? A soda?


Then he has the nerve to say, "Listen, I want you to entertain the adults in a little while ... it's okay if you go to midnight."


No, it's not. These kids are rude ... the family is rude. I want out.


I do my time ... and a little bit more and, of course ... no tip. Creeps like this, well, you expect it.


Never again! I will never take a booking from a jerk, ever again. If you want to "rent" me, please, go away!


On a happier note, one of the guests was a real gentleman ... and he hired me to do his son's Bar Mitzvah in July in Garden City. I enjoy doing Bar Mitzvah shows because they're always so much fun.  I get to do some sophisticated sleight of hand for the adults and teens - which is something I love to perform.


OK, that's it for me.
