This weekend I’ve been “sailing” all over North America with my tropical pirate themed Christmas magic show. What does a pirate do in the winter? Well, Santa may rest in the summer, but a pirate never rests. I’ve been performing my Christmas pirate shows all over the place. Magic shows with a pirate theme are a lot of fun at Christmas parties and special events. Why have a normal magician when you can liven up your employee holiday party with a bit of pirate magic fun? My holiday corporate pirate magic shows are full of interactive pirate magic and Christmas themed magic. My pirate magic sword turns into a candy cane, my first mate becomes a frozen snowman and at the end of the show instead of a magic Christmas tree, Captain Corbin puts out his Christmas barrel which magically fills with all his Christmas wishes, a long red and green garland of jewels, lots of root beer and of course gold, which he immediately throws out to the audience.
The show for Childcan went very well. It was the first time they had a large magic show at their holiday party. I had performed for them at the Highland golf club in London Ontario last year as well, but at the time I only performed my strolling or table hopping magic entertaining the children. They loved it so much they had me back for the full magic show this past weekend. I must admit I think I surprised them with how awesome the show went. Upon arrival the first thing I always do is set up my music. At a Christmas party instead of pirate music for pre show warm up, I play some of the most popular Christmas classics to get everyone in the mood. This was the first surprise for the client. The music always adds a lot to an event and it’s often the last thing people think about. During my show the music switches to an instrumental nautical themed background noise and the performance begins. I remember the organizers ushering the children to me for the show, then wandering off. A few minutes after I began the show however, everything seemed to stop and all the adults began gathering around my audience to watch. That was another surprises as they did not expect my show would be interesting to them, but of course it always is. A professional magic show that is family friendly and interesting to all ages. At the end of the performance I received many positive comments and was immediately booked for next year. If you’ve never had a pirate magician at your holiday parties I would highly recommend it! Tons of fun, Ahoy!
