When it comes to corporate events, no one makes a better show than Brent and Sarah. This husband and wife duo is all about making magic fun and funny for types of audiences.

The quality of their performance is just out-of-this-world but also managed to be grounded in terms of genuineness. We’re big fans of their witty remarks and how smooth the show goes from start to finish.

To give you an idea, attending their magic show feels a lot like an interactive event. Guests always have the opportunity to participate in the tricks and become the star of the show.

Additionally, we liked that they’re able to entertain even a large number of audiences. We even found that they hosted a magic show with a whopping 200 seated guests.

However, due to the format of their shows, they may not be the best choice for more intimate gatherings. After all, close-up magic isn’t their forte and their shows tend to have a comedic touch.

Of course, the fun factor is truly a plus, but believe it or not, sometimes guests don’t have a funny bone. And to be fair, humor is just an extra touch to the wow factor you want to get.

As proof of their exceptional performances over the years, the couple has a perfect rating on Google Reviews. Plus, our customer survey also reflected this, often praising how easy it was to communicate with them.

Another thing we love is that the same sorts of sentiments still translate on their online shows. They’re almost as captivating, hilarious, and interactive as they are on a live show – almost. 

Pros

  • 2 magicians booked per show
  • Can cater to all types and number of audiences
  • Interactive live and online shows
  • Performs a wide variety of magic tricks

Cons

  • Performs a limited type of magic show format

Customer Reviews

Entertaining, professional, and hilarious

We booked Brent and Sarah for our corporate virtual holiday celebration. Their performance was truly laugh out loud funny! They were entertaining, professional and hilarious throughout and brought some fun in what has been a challenging year for everyone. We received tons of positive comments from our staff. I would highly recommend them for any corporate or other event! – Laura Maclagan

Kept everyone laughing and engaged

Brent and Sarah were awesome, we hired them for a virtual event for almost 100 people. They were super responsive leading up to the show and they did not let us down. The show was great and kept everyone laughing and engaged. All the employees left the call with a smile on their face. Great work guys! – Josh Henneberry

Nothing is more magical than seeing the pure joy in the faces of children. And that’s why we love WonderPhil so much and the magic shows he does.

Specializing in kids’ parties, WonderPhil already captured the hearts of hundreds of customers in GTA. Plus, he has various packages clients can choose from, allowing for more control over the event.

The best part about these packages is that they all come with an invitation service. You can either print them to hand out or use them online to manage your guest list better.

For children’s parties alone, he offers three packages: WonderPhil Magic Show, WonderPhil “lite”, and Deluxe Magic Show.

WonderPhil Magic Show is the most popular and runs for 45 minutes. The “lite” version is shorter at 30 minutes, where only the favorite acts are featured.

The Deluxe Magic Show is similar to the first package but with an additional 15-minute magic workshop. All the packages also come with a WonderPhil souvenir, which we love (because kids also love it).

Out of all these packages, we believe you get a better value out of the regular WonderPhil Magic Show. But if you want the kids to socialize at the party, invest a bit more to get the Deluxe package for the workshop.

As far as the other events go, we aren’t too stoked about them as we are with children’s events. He also does corporate events and holiday shows but they just don’t bring the same charm in our opinion.

On the bright side, he truly is a master of his work, even doing a great job for online shows. In fact, we’re pretty sure that his perfect rating on Google Reviews says a lot about this already.

As a cherry on top, WonderPhil also holds the title of Toronto’s Best Magician (an award by A1 Media). He’s also lectured in conventions before, which we see as a sign of great knowledge and skills in the craft.

Pros

  • Magic show packages for children’s parties
  • Children’s party packages come with invitation service
  • Souvenirs available after each kids’ party
  • Interactive live and online show

Cons

  • Needs more flexibility with other event types

Customer Reviews

Keeps all kids and adults engaged

We had WonderPhil for my daughter’s 5th birthday party, and he was even better than I had hoped for! He was able to keep all the kids (and adults!) engaged the entire time and laughing. It was really special for my daughter to be involved in some of the magic tricks. Everyone talked about the show the rest of the party! Thank you WonderPhil! – Lindsey Cooper

Excellent choice for a kid’s party

WonderPhil kept the kids & adults laughing & entertained the entire time. An excellent choice for a kid’s birthday party! The kids loved learning a few tricks at the end of the show as well. Our daughter has asked for him at her birthday again next year!  Very happy we chose WonderPhil and highly recommend him! – Chelsea Mannette

If you’ve been following the magic world for a while, you may have heard of Coby before. Well, it can be hard to dismiss a magician with his sort of media mileage (he’s been on TV performances and talk shows).

All this exposure, of course, isn’t for naught. As of writing, the magician now accommodates up to 500 shows each year.

However, due to high demand, you may struggle with availability, particularly during peak seasons. It’s advisable that you connect with him as early as possible to see if he’s available for your event.

Speaking of events, we’re swept away by his innovative magic tricks that can easily wow a large audience. He’s perfect for corporate events as well as holiday shows for private parties.

Looking through his past performances, we have no other words but impressive, spectacular, and absolutely phenomenal. Coby’s a natural showman and he definitely has the charm to keep the audience engaged throughout the show.

In contrast, we do think that he’s a bit “uptight” for a bit of a comedy gag. But that’s not to say he isn’t entertaining – actually, over 600 customers think that he is among the best in his field.

Through our surveys, the magician earned positive ratings, reflecting his perfect score on Google Reviews. Other clients also said that he was funny and the magic tricks were mind-blowing – needless to say, it’s all that we need to hear.

Finally, like most magicians, Coby now also does virtual magic shows. We wished there were a few things that would’ve made this service unique, but as far as interactivity goes, it’s really nothing short of magical.

Pros

  • Has experience performing in 30 countries
  • Prominent and well-respected magician in North America
  • Has performed in front of heads of states and celebrities
  • Innovative and original magic trick

Cons

  • Can be difficult to book due to limited availability

Customer Reviews

Awesome magic show

I loved Coby’s show virtually he was amazing, and very engaging with his audience! I am so glad I got to see him due to a company event. I’ve loved magic since I was a young child, and every trick he did surprised me and made me smile and forget about everything for an hour! Awesome job Coby keep doing what you’re doing! – Nilam Shah

Fun and joyous experience

We hired Coby to perform a virtual show for our company holiday party. We are a remote company across much of the US. This was a great way to bring everyone together to have some fun and spread joy! My favorite part was when our co-workers sons were able to interact with the show. – Carol-Ann Chevalier

X.Ray Magic & Illusions was a gem of a find among exceptional magicians in the city. In our opinion, he has it all and can do it all – with probably just a few areas that could do with improvement.

For starters, he has that balance between formal events and family gatherings. If it’s a corporate event, he’s professional, outstanding, and highly engaging with this craft.

In family parties like birthdays and such, he transforms into a comedic performer who doesn’t take himself too seriously with his gags. And moments like these are such a delight to watch, especially if you have young children around.

As proof of his entertainment value, his clients have nothing to offer but praise. They noted how interactive his performance was and how the audience was left speechless in each one.

Not to mention, he also has a perfect Google Reviews rating too. The level of customer satisfaction goes without question but we want to point out a couple of things to look out for.  

Since he has such a wide area of expertise, it would’ve been better if the shows were offered through packages. We’d love to see more freedom in service customization too, considering his talent.

But apart from this, we’re satisfied with what he has to offer. Plus, you get to see his award-winning goldfish act – a showstopper in itself, perfect for all types of events.

Pros

  • Well-versed in any type of events
  • Specializes in both public and private events
  • Showcases an award-winning act in his shows
  • Efficient communication and booking

Cons

  • Lack of service customization

Customer Reviews

Great personality and talent

Amazing show, great personality, talented magician. We hired X-ray for a private party, and he was amazing. Our guests ranged from 4 years old to 80 years old, and everyone enjoyed it!! He is very funny, clever and talented.  Would recommend for all types of private functions. Even the staff at the venue had to stop and watch him in amazement. Thank you X-ray! – Shahab Tabesh

Prompt, flexible, and creative

Ray was a pleasure to work with- he was prompt, flexible and so creative! Thank you for making my son’s virtual birthday party so special! All of the kids and their parents loved your show, your humour and the way you incorporated the kids into the magic tricks. I especially appreciated your special touches, incorporating the party’s theme to really personalize it. You created a really memorable experience for all of us! – Luna Guha

With yet another perfect scorer on Google Reviews, every magician on this list seems to be a perfect choice. But you may want to look over at Mike D’Urzo first and his award-winning illusions.

To give you a bit of background first, the magician is a powerhouse when it comes to entertainment. He even won the award for “Performer of the Year” by Festivals & Events Ontario eight times!

As far as experience goes, he’s been all over the world, dropping jaws in theaters, theme parks, and TV shows. He’s basically a solid performer in terms of critical acclaim but he’s also well-loved by his audiences.

One of the things that set him apart is that he’s not only a magician, he’s also a mentalist. So, if you want some mind-twisting tricks, you may want to look into his services.

Other than this, the guy is literally brimming with energy and enthusiasm – two things that we think make up a great performer. Additionally, even his virtual shows were as mind-boggling as the live ones for us!

As a cherry on top, we love how clients can customize the services from him. There’s even an option for magic with a message, which can be a plus for more intimate moments. 

Based on his expertise and experience, we think we work better in a corporate setting. That said, any private gathering will also do as long as the atmosphere is kept in a professional tone without letting go of the fun.

Pros

  • Multi-awarded magician
  • Expanse experience in performing around the world
  • Magician, mentalist, and illusionist in one
  • Tricks that work both in live and virtual setting

Cons

  • Can’t cater to all types of events (e.g. kid’s parties)
