Welcome to my Home page! You are visitor number : Counter

This page is dedicated to my love of magic as a performing art. I am a magician in the Northern California Bay Area and have been entertaining family audiences for over 18 years. People hire me regularly to perform at birthday parties, holiday parties, special occasions, functions and events. I serve the Northern California Bay Area in and around San Jose, Fremont and Santa Clara in the heart of Silicon Valley. I am thinking of offering some magic classes soon. Please contact me if you are interested in learning magic.

Hi, this is the Amazing Vijay. Welcome to my website. I am a part time professional magician, which means that this is my hobby - not my job. I know what you are thinking - "Magic is just for kids ...". This is exactly the impression that I have to overcome everytime I perform. But I am happy to say that if you see me perform even one effect you will realize that "Magic is Entertainment". In fact, it is fun filled, wholesome entertainment for the entire family. I perform regaularly at various parties and events in the San Francisco Bay Area. Most of my performances are for private birthday parties. I also perform every year at events or corporate holiday parties. I can do a regular magic show or walk around and perform initimate close up magic for your guests. I can also twist balloon figures and usually end my performance by twisting Swords, Rabbits, Dogs, Flowers, Birds, Hats, etc. for all the children. Magic is a wonderful hobby and it gives me a lot of pleasure to entertain kids and adults on a regular basis. If you are having a party, I strongly recommend that you consider hiring a magician to entertain your guests. It is a great way to bring everyone in your party together. I can come to your home, a restaurant, a community center, a park or a school to perform my show.

I have a lot of fun performing Smiley Face and my audiences seem to have a lot of fun watching. What more can I ask?

Here are some questions I get asked the most :

How did you get interested in this and how long have you been doing this?

I have been interested in this since I was in high school, but did not devote any time to Magic while I was in college. I started getting into it again about 18 years ago when I started working in the Los Angeles area. Since then, I have learnt a lot of magic. I have performed as a part time professional since 1990.

How does one get started in this field?

If you are in the U.S.A., the best place to start is your public library. Check out the books on magic in the children's and adult section. If you are not in the U.S., try to get a beginner's magic book from a bookshop. I recommend the following books:

After getting a book, learn a few effects and show them to your friends. It will take a while and some patience to get it right, but when you finally start entertaining them, you will feel very happy indeed. Remember to focus on entertainment, and NOT to just try to fool someone. People like to be entertained but hate being fooled!! Those wild stories that you will tell, the magical gestures you make are all as important as the mechanics of the trick itself.

After learning stuff from the beginner's Magic books, how can I learn more advanced magic?
