Bay Area Magician for Kid's Parties and more!

Young Magician - James Chan


Bay Area Magician and Juggler - James Chan

James Chan is a charming magician and juggler whose talent is only surpassed by his effervescent personality. At only nine years old, he has learned to balance school, family time and being a 'kid' with a passionate commitment to perfecting his craft. For James, a typical day includes 3-4 hours of practicing and rehearsing for future performances, under the watchful direction of his dad, Master Magician, Dan Chan. James Chan has also trained at the San Francisco Circus Center in clowning, stilting, acrobatics and more! Performing regularly at local functions, grand openings, festivals- even high profile corporate events in Silicon Valley, has allowed this young magician to slowly build a reputation for being one of the top family entertainers in the Bay Area.

Prepare to be amazed!

James Chan's performances always include an ensemble of astonishing trick routines and juggling feats that will amaze and delight audiences of all ages. Using pure sleight of hand, he performs a 3 shell game, the 3 card monte, spectacular rubber band tricks and a magnificent math routine-he'll even dazzle you by memorizing the order of a shuffled deck playing cards. Showcasing his dexterous skills, James springs cards from hand to hand, cuts a deck of playing cards with one hand and performs other difficult feats that will leave you wondering...'how in the world did he do that?' Prepare yourself to be both in-awe and inspired as James juggles 3, 4 and 5 balls. Your eyes will become transfixed as he passes 5, 6 and 7 balls with his dad or as a signed card unexpectedly jumps across the room into his mouth!! For larger evening events, this charismatic young entertainer will happily greet your guest juggling light up objects for a memorable arrival to your event. And, to top it all off, he'll climb into a 6 foot tall by 6-foot wide balloon for a grand finale worthy of a seasoned professional! James also juggles 3 flaming torches and looks forward to showcasing this on television.

The ultimate value in entertainment!

If you are looking for cost-effective entertainment that will leave a lasting impression on your guests- of any age, James Chan is the perfect choice for your next corporate event, family festival or grand opening.
* At approximately the same cost per hour of hiring a balloon twister or face-painter, James will maximize the value of each dollar spent.
* Typically a balloon twister can get to 15-20 guests per hour. However, as a juggler on the move, James is highly visible and is capable of entertaining over 250 guests in an hour.
* James performs sets of close up magic from 3-7 minutes each and is trained to gather a crowd of 10-15 people per set.
* You'll hire a charming entertainer who performs amazing magical feats while getting the most impact for each dollar spent.
* Your guests will be so inspired by this young entertainer, they’ll be talking about your event long after the performance is over and everyone has gone home!

" 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
