I offer two different exciting birthday party entertainment packages for children ages 5-7
& a special 'Secrets Revealed' interactive magic workshop for children ages 8-10.

Deluxe Half Hour Magic Party Package

Age Range: Children ages 5-7.
Entertainment Length: 1/2 Hour.

UNLIMITED # OF GUESTS
*In-home parties only.

Your child is featured in many of the tricks. This of course makes your child feel very special being in front of all the other children helping the magician perform magic.

And since it is an audience participation show, all of the kids get to help out in some way. This is important because, as you know, kids do not want to just sit and watch the show, they want to be actively involved!

That’s why I use more audience participation than any other kid show entertainer in Calgary!!

Now in addition to the amazing and fun magic, I perform some very funny puppetry. The kids go BANANAS when they see Chico "The Mind Reading Chimp"! In fact, it’s one of the highlights of my show that makes the kids laugh the hardest.

The Magic Words Will Be "Happy Birthday!"

Imagine how cool it will be when all of your party guests wish your child a Happy Birthday in unison, over and over throughout the magic show. It’s a ton of fun and always brings a huge smile to the birthday child's face!

For the finale of the show, I will turn your child into a magician Your child tries to make a handkerchief disappear with a wave of the magic wand. The magic wand magically turns into two, three, four and then five colorful magic wands! It’s super funny to watch the birthday child hold all the magic wands. After lots of funny business, your child really does make the handkerchief disappear, but that’s not the only thing… my sock disappears too! The looks on your child’s friends’ faces will be priceless!!

I suggest you keep your cameras ready during the show, because there are a number of ‘Picture Perfect’ moments like this.

  • 1/2 hour comedy magic show
  • Theatre style backdrop
  • Professional sound system & music
  • Activity poster (All guests)
  • Magician's top hat (Bday child only)
  • Magic wand (Bday child only)
  • Magician's certificate (Bday child only)
  • Unlimited # of guests

Premium 1 Hour Magic Party Package

Age Range: Children ages 5-7.
Entertainment Length: 1 Hour.

UNLIMITED # OF GUESTS
*In-home parties only.

Double The Party Time!

The Premium package includes everything in the Deluxe package plus 4 exciting party extras!

After the show I also play a really fun interactive dance game with all the kids. This really gets them excited! Everybody's a winner & all the kids get to take home a special prize...

Every child at the party goes home with their very own, easy-to-do, free magic trick. I used to use balloons as giveaways but found that they just don’t last. A lot of times they would pop even before the kids left the party.

After the magic show, I teach all the kids how to do the magic trick and this now becomes a mini magic workshop. It’s special for the kids to get their own magic trick from the magician at their party so they can go home and perform magic for family and friends. And they tell people they learned it from the magician at your child's b-day party!

For the BIGGER Finale...
I will make YOUR CHILD FLOAT IN THE AIR!

You get everything included in the Deluxe package plus:

  • More magic.. The magic show is now 45 minutes!
  • Birthday child gets to float in the air!
  • Free magic trick (All guests)
  • Interactive Games & Dance

In Less Than 45 Seconds I Can Transform Any Of Your Rooms Into A Theater!

Christopher Cool can keep 3 year olds sitting and entertained for an hour, plus he keeps all the kids ( and adults) laughing for the entire show! This guy is Great! Every Mom needs to hire him." - Dione P.

MOST POPULAR!

BOTH PACKAGES ABOVE
INCLUDE:

  • Theatre Style Backdrop
  • Battery Powered Speaker
  • Wireless Microphone
  • Music
  • All Props & Tables
  • Unlimited # of Guests

For the older kids (Ages 8-10)

The older kids don't want to sit & watch a magic show, they just want to know how the tricks are done! That's why I created this very interactive magic workshop. Instead of performing a magic show, I'll teach your child & their friends how to do really cool magic tricks with ordinary objects, a magic wand & a few other special magic props.

The kids get to keep all of the supplies & props which now becomes their goodie bag! This saves you time & money.

MORE THAN JUST A MAGIC SHOW...

WHEN YOU BOOK ANY OF MY BIRTHDAY PACKAGES, I PROVIDE YOU WITH A PARTY PLANNING GUIDE, PARTY INVITES, RSVP LIST & PRINTABLE MAGIC THEMED DECORATIONS!

As soon as you book your party with me, I will send you these party extras so you can start using them right away!

RELAX, KNOWING THAT YOUR CHILD & THEIR FRIENDS ARE GOING TO LOVE THE MAGIC SHOW!

  • Not only did he keep the attention of 12 children for the entire time, but parents as well. A month later, the kids are still talking about the best party ever! The goodie bags are well worth it, the kids played for hours with them after the party. We couldn't have picked a better entertainer!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you still can't find the answer you're looking for, please send an email to: chris@christophercool.com or call me at (403) 800-0866.

Do you require a deposit & what methods of payment do you accept?

Yes. To secure your preferred party date & time, a $100 non-refundable booking deposit is required. The deposit must be processed with a Visa or MasterCard.

The balance will be due on the day of the show. I accept cash, Visa & MasterCard.

How does your program differ from other magicians?

When deciding on entertainment for your child’s party, you want to hire an entertainer who has the experience needed to keep the attention of the young audience.

I’m a full time professional magician who specializes in entertaining children. This isn’t a part time job or hobby for me. I perform at over 170 kids parties every year & I know what makes kids laugh!

I also offer much more than just a magic show. I’ll be with you every step of the way to planning the perfect birthday party that’s stress-free, super fun & unforgettable!

How far in advance should I book you?

I am fortunate enough to be a very popular & busy children’s entertainer, performing at over 170 kids parties every year!

Please contact me before arranging your party date & time, as you may need to be flexible to secure my services.

Most of my shows book 2-3 months in advance. Since my schedule can change very quickly, I recommend booking as early as possible.

Do you perform outside of Calgary?

Yes! In addition to performing in Calgary, Alberta, I also frequently perform in Airdrie, Chestermere & Cochrane with no additional travel fees. On occasion, I do accept booking invitations for other cities & towns, schedule permitting.

If you’re hosting a party outside of Calgary, please call me at (403) 800-0866 to discuss your party in more detail.

Can you perform your show outside?

No, my show must be indoors. If the wind is blowing, that can be too much as some of my props are very light & will blow away.

It’s always safer to have it indoors, plus there will be less distractions. You can have the party outside (in a backyard) & then invite the guests inside to watch the show.

Do you offer party favours?

YES! I want your party planning to be EASY! I offer party extras such as done-for-you goodie bags, magician top hats & magic wands. These party favours will save you time, money & the kids will love them!

You can purchase these AFTER you’ve booked a party with me.

My child is shy, will your show be appropriate?

No. I’m sorry, my show is centred around making the birthday child the star of the show. If your child is shy, then I would recommend hiring another entertainer. If your child is outgoing, then they will definitely have a great time in my show!

Can we celebrate more than 1 child's birthday?

You sure can! It’s just twice as much fun! If you book the 1 hour magic party package, only one of the children will get to float in the air. The other child will get turned into a magician.

Is my child too young?

The birthday child must be at least 5 years old to participate in the magic show & 8 years old or older to participate in the magic workshop.

If your child is younger than 5, I would highly recommend you waiting until he/she is a bit older. This way they can really appreciate & enjoy the magic show.

How much space do you need?

Not much at all.

My backdrop is 8 feet high & 8 feet wide. I like to have a 2-3 feet (backstage area) & about 4-5 feet in front of me (performing area).

Usually, your living room is a perfect place for this. Other than that, an area right in front of my performing area for the children to sit and enjoy the show is all that is needed. Finished/unfinished basements work great as well. I don’t want you to have to move furniture around. Wherever you have the most open space is best. My show can also be done without the backdrop if space is limited.

I have never been in a place where I couldn’t perform due to space constraints. I’m very flexible and east to work with.

Can we take photos & video during your show?

You may video record portions of the show, but not the entire show. Take as many photos as you like! It’s a great way to remember your child’s special day.

How many guests can I invite?

In both the 1/2 hour & 1 hour magic show packages you can invite as many guests as you like!

If you are booking the 1 hour magic workshop, you can invite a maximum of 15 guests including the birthday child.

Is there anything you need me to provide?

Nope! My show is completely self contained, this way you can just enjoy the party yourself!

What is your cancellation policy?

Since I turn away other potential bookings when you reserve your date/time, cancellations for any reason will forfeit the deposit. However; in the event of an emergency, you may re-schedule the show without any penalty & the deposit will be applied to the new booking (up to 120 days). Re-scheduling is based upon my availability & you may only re-book for a Friday or Saturday evening after 6PM.

How long should my party be & when should we start your show?

If you are planning on serving food (lunch or dinner), I recommend hosting a 2 1/2 hour party. If you only want to serve cake/cupcakes, I recommend hosting a 2 hour party. Any longer & you make harder for yourself. It’s always better to leave the guests wanting more!

Start the entertainment 30 minutes after the party starts. This will give your guests enough time to arrive so that nobody misses the show. If you start your party more than 30 minutes before the entertainment, the guests will get restless. (Unless you feed the guests first)

How long do you need to set-up & pack up?

I only need 15 minutes to set-up & 10 minutes to pack up. I’ve got this down to a science!

Can we host the party at a different venue?

Yes & no. All the packages & pricing on this website are for In-Home parties only. If you are planning on hosting the party at a different venue, please call me at (403) 800-0866 to discuss your party in more detail. There are certain venues that do not work well for a magic show.

Please note – The best parties I have ever done, have always been hosted in a residential home.

IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO BOOK YOUR CHILD'S PARTY. AFTER ALL, YOUR CHILD'S BIRTHDAY IS THE SAME DATE EVERY YEAR! PLANNING AHEAD MAKES IT EASIER TO BOOK YOUR PREFERRED DATE & TIME.

About Me

Hi, I'm Christopher Cool - A professional magician born & raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Now Currently residing in Calgary, Alberta.  I specialize in entertaining children & family audiences. I perform over 450 magic shows a year at children's birthday parties, preschools, daycares & other family friendly events.

I caught the magic bug when i was only 5 years old after watching a magician perform for my kindergarten class. It wasn't too long after that I received my first magic set.  Fast forward a few years & I was cutting my sisters in half, sticking swords through them & making them float in the air! My mom always thought magic was a phase I was going to grow out of, but I never did.

Most magicians strive to land a Vegas gig, but I'm very happy with where i am now & wouldn’t change it for the world.  There's nothing better than suiting up with my signature blue suit jacket, red shirt, yellow tie & entertaining children!
