Dave is one of the most sought after Magicians in NYC!

While a room full of children is enough to overwhelm most parents (and even some children entertainers), it’s no problem for me – a full-time NYC middle school teacher (with a master’s in education) and a dad of 2!

I grew up in Manhattan and have been performing at children’s parties for over 24 years! I have been seen on the Channel 11 News, in The New York Times, by tens of thousands of children, hundreds of celebrities, and even my 3rd-grade teacher and next-door neighbor! As a full-time New York City teacher and a dad of 2, I have a remarkable aptitude for entertaining children and establishing a rapport with kids (an essential trait for any children’s entertainer).

I am the only NYC magician who arrives with a live rabbit, a live snake, a magic workshop and party bags! With my customized shows, I make sure it is silly enough for 3-year-olds, but savvy enough for teenagers, and can easily accommodate groups with special needs. I cater every show to the ages of the kids and will provide the best show for the crowd. I guarantee all of my shows; if you’re not 100% satisfied, I don’t want you to pay.
