Robert Strong has illusions available to make their entrance spectacular. With only 30 minutes of rehearsal, your VIP can be the star of the show and appear magically on stage.
  • Theater Shows — Robert Strong has been performing comedy magic for over 30 years. He knows show business inside and out. He would be happy to put together a Las Vegas style variety show with comedians, jugglers, physical comedians, impressionists, ventriloquists, acrobats, contortionists, musicians, dancers, fire-eaters, stilt walkers, unicyclists, and much more.
  • Private Engagements — You have arranged the location, food, drinks, decorations, lighting, music, photographer, videographer, and everything right down to the clean-up crew. But there is something missing. It is MYSTERY, WONDER, and AWE! Magic is the only form of entertainment that transforms the viewer into a Kid-at-Heart in an instant. It is the best theater in the world. You are taken on a magical journey that is only limited by your imagination, and anything is possible.
  • Close-up Magic — Close-up, roving, strolling, atmosphere, mingling, wandering, or roaming magic by any other name would still be frickin amazing—the magic happens right before your very eyes!!!
  • Customized Magical Giveaways — Giving out a magic trick with your logo and message on it makes an indelible impression. Perhaps that’s why magicians, more than every other sales tool, are used on the trade show floor around the world as spokespeople. Want a giveaway that entertains, amazes and, at the same time, communicates your message? Custom imprinted magic tricks and juggling balls are a great solution. Contact Robert Strong for a quote!
