Magicians are without any doubt the best source of entertainment not only at birthdays or family gatherings but also for your communion party. A magician can help bring smiles to everyone’s face whether he is a young child or an elderly man. It is a great idea to hire a magician on your communion as it will add colours to your gathering and ensure every guest enjoys. It helps engage all the guests and saves them from boredom. However, there are a number of things you have to consider while hiring a magician. Many of the things you have to consider while hiring a magician for your communion are:

1. Hiring a Professional Magician

The magician should be professional so that he knows his job well. This will ensure that all your guests enjoy to the fullest. A professional is always punctual and dedicated to his work, so he is committed to showcasing the best tricks that leave the guests in awe. Hiring an amateur might turn your party into a disaster, which you definitely don’t want.

2. Check their Website -do your homework

It is always ideal to check the website of the magician before hiring. It helps you test the credibility of the magician’s services. You can read reviews about the magician’s services and get to know important details about his tricks and talent. The reviews will help you get an idea about the type of events that have been catered by the magician in order to know if he is capable of being hired for your event or not.

3. Watching a Video Clip

You need to watch a short video clip of a similar event hosted by the magician, before you decide to hire him. This will give you a good idea about the type of entertainment he has to offer because you need a family entertainer and not someone who can just entertain small kids. If a magician refuses to show you a video clip, then he is extremely unprofessional.

4. When To Organize the Show

It is always ideal to start the show at the middle of the event as this will ensure that all the guests have arrived and none of them has left as yet. The hosts are also free at that time as they don’t have to be at the reception to greet or bid farewell to guests. This will help all the guests to equally enjoy the show.

5. Location of the Show

Another important consideration that you should always make while hiring a magician is where your event is located. If the event is located at a spacious place then it is never a bad idea to hire a professional magician. In that area where the event is being hosted you should locate the magician at a place where he is easily visible as well as audible to all the guests. Though he can use speakers for audibility but visibility is still an important determinant in deciding the venue of the show.


Hiring a magician for an upcoming communion is a great way to break the ice with your guests. It’s also a very popular form of entertainment, that will appeal to both the children and to the adults. Magic is fun, engaging, and interactive. It can change a boring family party to a lively, exciting, and memorable event. It is very popular and a great way to take your communion entertainment to a new level.
