Sometimes it is difficult to come up with party ideas for all ages. Is my son/daughter too old for me to hire a magician for their birthday party? Great question! How old is too old? I have done parties where the girl was celebrating her 70th birthday. I guess I should say she wasn’t a girl but a lady. The phrase, “Your only as young as you feel” came to my mind when she booked. But that is really the point. It doesn’t matter how old a person is, if they love magic and want to see a great show, then why not hire a magician? We at funnybone magic cater for all ages. We can put on a show for very young children to senior citizens. My philosophy is if they are still breathing, then I can entertain them!!
The important thing to remember when booking a magician is make sure the show is going to be for the appropriate age. Some magicians can only do young children’s shows, some only do adult ones. You don’t want to hire someone who only does children’s shows for an adult party. The guests would be bored stiff and probably insulted and vice versa, the children wouldn’t sit very long if the magician couldn’t keep their attention. Both adults and children have different needs that the magician has to meet. Adults want to see spectacular tricks, whereas children just want to laugh and be entertained. Both want to have fun.
The best way to find out if a magician can cater for all ages is to check their website. What have other people said about the shows in their reviews? Does their website show different types of shows according to ages? Just like one particular car, say a Ford, doesn’t meet everyone’s needs, one magic show can’t meet all the needs of different age groups. The magician you hire has to use age appropriate magic tricks for your party.
