What People Are Saying
"Jonathan is a crowd grabber,
throughout the evening I'd look over to see party guests saying,
"How'd he do that?!?"
He actually stayed way longer than agreed to.
No complaints, all cheers, highly recommended.
Thanks again, Mr. Finch"
- Dan Stivers - Coldwell Banker Brokerage
"We hired Jon as a mentalist for a fundraising cocktail party
held at our house for 100 people. He was outstanding!
We were looking for someone who would casually work the crowd
but not demand a stage kind of performance,
more in the background and Jon was perfect and so entertaining!
The feedback we received was so positive and people were blown away at how fun, professional and talented he is.
Jon was on time, stayed way later than we expected (bonus!) and did a great job of mingling and engaging the crowd. We would definitely hire him for another party! - Stacy Purcell
"Had Jon at my daughters wedding.
Did a great job walking around entertaining guests.
He'll be back for my next daughter's wedding." - Cameron Aller
"Jonathan was GREAT! I will strongly recommend him for anyone I know who is looking for a Magician or Mentalist!
I am hoping to get him back to our area for our next event!
I don't usually give reviews but he was well worth reviewing."
- Barb Riesebeck

Stone Creek Lodge is the perfect place to have a magical evening, but even better were the people inside I had the pleasure of meeting. From the first person I entertained to the last, they were all wonderful (all loved the magic).
Of course magicians charge all different rates.
Read on to look at some real numbers...
I had been hired to entertain around 200 people at Topgolf in Fishers Indiana, for the New Year’s Eve celebration—and it was a magical event.
On three floors, for four hours I mingled and performed close-up magic. The members were super cool. By that I mean you could see everyone’s breath in an atmosphere approaching zero degrees, despite the hot air blown down from the vents above the first floor and each balcony on the second and third floors.
18 Dead by Magic...
Magic can be tragic.
In these 18 examples of death by magic, the "killer effect" was no figure of speech.
I'm going to share with you here the secret of all secrets--the meta-secret.
If you are one of those people who simply has to know how "that trick" works,
and you can't sleep until you figure it out or find it out, then you'll find reading this informative.
Obviously, I could not (under any circumstances) or would not reveal the secrets of a trick (many of them are not mine to reveal). However, as a magician, I can give you something more important.
Sadly, with the holiday season comes a lot of requests to which I must regrettably reply,
"I'm already booked for that date and time."
For this reason you should try to book your entertainment well in advance unless you're okay with settling for a juggler.
I almost always learn valuable lessons when performing magic,
and these events were no different.
Whether we ride a Harley or drive a Prius, magic affects us all in the same way.
Why would you want to hire a mentalist for a party?
Maybe you think you want to hear some of your friends secrets exposed.
But the last thing you want is your own secrets exposed in front of all your guests. When people are afraid that a mentalist might read their mind, suddenly all sorts of embarrassing thoughts arise.
How would you like to live in a world where you (and everyone else) has immediate access to one another’s thoughts. From your doctor, to your Uber driver, from your professor to your student, your salesperson, your waiter, your parents, your children. Would you recognize that you are no very different from others? Or would you discover that the way you think is very different from the way others think?
I was hired to perform for a tech company.
When I got there this morning, I was greeted by the man who found me,
and he joyfully commented on the fact that I was wearing only jeans and a red tee shirt.
It's not my typical uniform when booked to perform at an event,
but he had told me before that everyone there would be dressed very casually,
and anything more than jeans and a button-up shirt would be out of place.
He wanted to surprise this industrious sales team--and congratulate them. Something to do with their quota.
"When I think of a magician, I think of.. you know.. someone carrying suitcases of stuff," he smiled and shook his head. I would fit right in until he announced me, "Hey guys, this is for the magic you've managed to pull off..."
But what made this show different from others wasn't my attire.
It was that I was surrounded not just by the two dozen spectators in the room, but there were also another dozen watching from two or three webcams that had been set up for the remote viewers.
I was invited to his home to join the party as the entertainment at the end-of-Summer party for the honored few: his elite group of friends, foes, and associates. There were two other Indianapolis magicians--kids magicians though--for the younger crowd. I was hired to take care of the grown-ups.
When I met my point of contact she looked me up and down, then asked me what I needed.
I stood facing her wearing trousers and a dress shirt.
Everyone has seen a card trick, just as everyone has seen a movie.
There are plenty awful ones, and a few outstanding ones...
A short and stout teapot of a man waddled onto the stage. His very image prompts a ripple of laughter among the audience. By the middle of his show, everyone in the auditorium is in rapt attention, some members of the audience even get up from their seats to get closer to the performer and watch more carefully.
If nature ever intended Max Malini to become a magician, not even a mentalist could’ve guessed it...
The comforting objection to Artificial Intelligence, “A computer can only follow the program written by a human,” is no longer true. Computers can now learn on their own. And they have. And between today and 20 years from now, today is the worst it will ever be...
The magician often uses humor as an essential form of misdirection. Even without this in the performer's toolbox, magic can often elicit laughter without any overt jokes. Here's why...
In no particular order, below are three magicians I want at my party. You won't find these entertainers in a list of Indianapolis magicians, but David Blaine is appearing June 21st at the Murat Theatre in Indianapolis.
Indianapolis magician, sure, but only about half my shows are near Indianapolis.
Loved the show last night at the event in Winnetka, Illinois, celebrating the Vice President at Basic Wire and Cable.
I had already been looking forward to it because I love Winnetka, Illinois, but once I got there...
A magician is an accessory to your day, but more essential than you might first expect...
People have said some pretty mean things about Donald Trump. He's been described as "a privileged gasbag," "having a thrifty complexity," and being "one-dimensional" (except for his inter-dimensional hair) On the other hand, he has a tremendous necktie.
I like him as much as the next guy, and would argue that he has more than just a tremendous necktie. He has charisma, he has the gift of gab, and he's a born showman.
So why would I write such a damaging post about his not being fit to be a magician?
