Young Magician - James Chan


Experience James Chan Live!

James Chan is a charming magician and juggler with an amazing personality. His entertainment is perfect for family events, Blue and Gold banquets, libraries, birthday parties and "Take your child to work" events. James spends up to 4 hours a day practicing and rehearsing, under the direction of his dad, Dan Chan Master Magician. Over the past 4 years, James has slowly built a reputation for being one of the top family entertainers in the Bay Area. James performs several classic and master routines including the 3 shell game, the 3 card monte, and rubber bands using pure sleight of hand. Showing dexterous skills, James springs cards from hand to hand, cuts a deck of playing cards with one hand and performs other difficult feats of sleight of hand! Be amazed and inspired as James juggles 3, 4 and 5 balls. In addition, he'll even pass 5, 6 and 7 balls with dad!

In fact for corporate events, James does an amazing math routine that will baffle even the grown-ups. For larger evening events James can greet your guest as he juggles light up juggling balls. During dinner shows or theater performances, James will also magically produce a live dove. When he performs with Dad, a signed card may even jump across the room into his mouth unexpectedly. As the grand finale, he'll climb into a 6 foot tall by 6-foot wide balloon!

James also memorizes the order of a shuffled deck playing cards, in addition, he memorizes and calculates details of only a prodigy would be capable of. James' plans to perform this effect on national television!

In addition, James has performed for the Warriors, several CEOs around the Bay Area including the CEO of Google, Twitter, and Evite.

"Perfect for our take your kids to work day event" - HP

"We'd love to book James on August 1st, 2017 for our Bring Your Kids to Work Day at the Warriors Practice Facility" - Golden State Warriors

"A wonderful addition to our fundraising gala. So wonderful what he does with those numbers!" - Chinese Historical Society 2015

"James was the perfect solution to our corporate event. Your recommendation was spot on - with over 1000 plus people at the event James was highly visible juggling light up balls. *(Dan recommended James juggling the first hour at the entrance and roaming around the large venue, as it would be difficult to get people to stop to watch magic during the first hour as it's difficult to compete against food upon arrival. The second hour we recommended roaming amongst the guests performing his world class shell routine.) He absolutely fooled me with his sleight of hand. You were right, the ladies especially loved him and commented on how cute and charming he was!" - Specialized Bicycle 2015 Employee Holiday Party

"So funny and talented at such a young age!" Alice 6/18/16

"It has been inspiring for my kids, who are the same age as James, to watch him."

"You are a truly gifted entertainer... So sweet and natural on stage. James was absolutely amazing" Lizi Cruz, Mill Valley Arts Festival Entertainment Coordinator

" The highlight of the show was definitely Dan's boy, James. It is that cute father-son act I tell you. He did great in the actual show, especially at the end but I don't want to ruin the surprise. I still don't get it and I probably never will. Yay for little James!" Amy H. 9/15/2015 Yelp Review for Bay Area's Most Popular Dinner Show

"Most impressive act to me was the number effect by James Chan. Kudos to James Chan for his contributions to the show." Connie W. 11/25/14 Yelp Review of BayAreaDinnerShow.com

"I love watching James on stage." Jeff Raz, Cirque du Soleil Casting Partner
