Whether you are planning your club's annual awards banquet or looking to add a magical touch to your wedding reception, Markus offers a variety of options to make your worries disappear.
Markus offers a variety of magical options to fit your entertainment needs.
Close-up magic is the most popular and versatile form of magical entertainment available today. This particular style of magic is perfect for wedding receptions, mixers, cocktail parties, and other large events where people are mingling. Markus uses cards, coins, and pure sleight of hand to entertain your guest one on one and in smaller groups. He literally performs the magic right before their eyes and in their hands. Your guests will thank you for providing such personal entertainment.
Stand up is a more formalized style of show, and is perfect for venues that require entertainment for a larger organized audience. Stand up is most often used for club meetings, dinners, and banquets. Markus blends comedy, magic, and audience participation into an experience that will amuse and delight. Your guests will laugh and applaud all while being amazed by mind blowing magic.
Is it psychic phenomena or just psychology? Whether you are a believer or a sceptic this show will leave your audience astounded. Markus will demonstrate feats of mental agility. He will read minds and control thoughts, see the past and predict the future. Using a combination of intuition, modern psychology, and a touch of NLP, Markus will guide you and your guests through a world where psychic ability may actually exist.
Magic and Other Nonsense, an evening of sleight of hand and legerdemain:
Magic and Other Nonsense is Markus's highly successful one man show designed for intimate theatres. The technical demands of this show do require theatrical lighting and sound, and are best suited to theatres with a seating capacity of 200 or fewer. Similar to Markus's stand up show, there is plenty of humour, audience participation, and of course, mystery. Markus will read your mind, perform a timeless Chinese classic, and demonstrate what may be one of the oldest recorded tricks in magic. Although the show is family friendly it is recommended for ages 13 and up.
Your wedding day is a magical time, and the last thing you need is to be concerned about your guests enjoyment. Markus Clegg is here to make your worries disappear.
Bringing Markus Clegg, magical entertainer, to your reception insures that your guests will be taken care of. As you know there is often a lag between the ceremony and the wedding party's arrival to the reception. Often guests will arrive an hour or more before you. Markus Clegg will provide top quality, personal entertainment for your guests. When performing for small groups of your friends and family that lag time will seem to vanish completely.
When planning the seating arrangement you are often faced with putting together guests that may not know one another. Close up magic is a great ice breaker. It gives the guests a moment to relax, and even be introduced to one another, in an entertaining, fun, and unique way.
Your special day is all about you. When you arrive at the reception, you will be in the spotlight. Markus's magic is unobtrusive. If he is needed after your arrival, you can be assured your guests will be entertained and you will still be the star of the show.

I am a Professional Face Painter in Champaign Urbana who has been painting for over 12 years. I have painted perfect 3 month old babies as well as fun-loving, young at heart grandparents. From birthday parties to large events, I am at ease and well equipped to handle whatever may be needed.
Some organizations I have worked with include: The University of Illinois, Champaign Park District, Chick-Fil-A, Children's Hospital, The Children's Museum of Denver, Make-A-Wish Foundation, 9 News Health Fair, Einstein Bagels and the Wildlife Experience Museum.
I love being a face painter because I love art and I love children. When the two come together, joy happens - you can see it all over their faces. Out of both a personal and professional concern for your children, I only use professional quality, hypo-allergenic paints.
Book me for your next party! Give me a call; I would love to talk to you!
