NYC’s Award Winning Children’s Magician!

Dave’s show is silly enough for 3-year-olds, but savvy enough for teenagers, and can easily accommodate groups with special needs. His shows are perfect for birthdays, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Communions, Halloween, Christmas, Hanukah, Weddings, or any other event! With his unique animals, hands-on workshop, no-fuss party bags, balloon animals, and ability to relate to children, it is easy to see why Magical Dave is one of NYC’s top children’s magicians!

When not performing or teaching, Dave loves spending time with his wife, 2 kids, a puppy, a bunny, a hamster, and some goldfish.

Magical Dave did an event for my daughter’s school and brought so much joy and light to all of our kids and families! BEST magic I’ve seen on Zoom all year…and I’ve been to a lot of magic zoom bday parties. 🙂 He’s funny and has great energy and a wonderful way of engaging the kids — even across the screen. I would highly recommend some time with Magical Dave as soon as you can.

Magical Dave was AMAZING! The kids absolutely loved him and were laughing the entire time. He knows how to engage children and get them to participate. He is so good at putting on his show! We loved getting to learn magic tricks during the workshop as well. We highly recommend Magical Dave!

Dave was amazing! He is kind, funny, and attentive to kids’ interactions. He is the best at Zoom shows. I cannot imagine a better show. The kids laughed and loved it!

Magical Dave was a life saver! This was my first time planning a kid’s party and despite having close to 15 kids between the ages of 6-10 when he came in and began his show everyone was immediately tuned in. He captured their attention, established house rules, used age appropriate jokes, wasn’t scared to be silly and knew how to perfectly keep their attention for the whole show. He also handed out magic wands and also made balloon animals for everyone.
