Do you like magic card tricks, right? I mean, who does not? It is that feeling you get when you think you are about to figure out the trick that keeps us coming back. We know it is all about sleight of hand, but you always think that somehow, someway you’ll catch it. Not true with these professionals. Try as you might, you will not be able to see a thing.

That is when you know you are looking at a good magic card trick!

These magicians are great for private parties, celebrations, group functions, and non-profit events. They can bring the unexpected to the party and engage people like no other entertainer can. Since having fun is the name of the game, you cannot go wrong with this good time activity. If you are planning a party and looking for great and unique entertainment, look no further.

This is it. Well, maybe not the apocalypse that you’re thinking of, but something so much better…that’s right, a magical apocalypse. What do we mean by that, though? It’s actually pretty simple… if this is the destruction of magic as we know it, something must be taking its place. But what, or who, could that be? Well, we can’t tell you all Top Magicians in The World, because who can, but we certainly can tell you some of them. At least the top 11 in our book. From dragons to card tricks, we know you’ll be just as surprised as we are at the tricks these magicians have up their sleeves. So…are you ready to find out? Okay, here we go!

11 Fresh Magicians You Need to Know About

Nowadays, there are plenty of entertainment options to choose from when planning an event. However, booking a magic act will never go out of style. Most people are fascinated by impossible magic, which is one of the reasons why magic has such a universal appeal.

Plus, it’s fun and suited for a wide array of events and audience types. That said, we wanted to recommend 9 fresh magicians who would make an excellent pick. Let’s dive right in!

Justin Flom

Justin Flom is a world-famous magician and comedian. What makes Justin stand out from others is the simplicity of his magic, as well as the fact that he cracked the code on doing close-up magic on massive stages.

“My magic is organic,” says Justin.

What this means is that all of his magic uses ordinary objects, such as cans of Pringles, dollar bills and candy nerds. Plus, Justin likes to mix things up and incorporate music into his magic as well, a surprise that will surely delight guests.

He’s one of the young fresh magicians to keep an eye out for. Not only do we consider Justin one of our Top Magicians in The World, but he was also featured on CBS Global talent competition World’s Best in 2019.

Booking Justin’s magical mystery act will ensure your event turns into a memorable moment for everyone there. Plus, audience members will get a chance to take part in his magic tricks, thus increasing engagement level at your event even more.

Piff the Magic Dragon

Piff the Magic Dragon

Piff the magic dragon lived by the sea. And frolicked in the autumn mist… No? Don’t do that? Okay, yeah, you’re right, I’m really not the most talented singer. But hey! Who needs my singing when you’ve got a uniquely talented Piff and his Magic Dragon? See my point? With his performing chihuahua, Mr. Piffles, and his countless performances in cities all around this world, there’s no doubt Piff is one of the more professional dragons you’ll work with. At least in our opinion, but we’re partial to his chihuahua, and who wouldn’t be? So, if you’re looking an entertaining magician, Piff and Mr. Piffles should definitely be on your list. After all, you have to be a really good dragon to have a seventeen-day tour, right? Piff and Mr. Piffiles is one of our Top Magicians in The World.

Jon Dorenbos

A football player with a purpose. A business degree with a passion for entertaining. Who is this? Jon Dorenbos, of course! You might have heard of him…he played for Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, and New Orleans Saints for not one, not two, but fourteen seasons. That’s a lot of time in the National Football League if you ask me. Anyways, you didn’t come for a football player, though. You came to hear about all of the best magicians out there, and Dorenbos is one of the best. I mean, when you’ve been performing magic since you were thirteen, how could you not be? But the most important aspect of the Jon Dorenbos experience? He isn’t there to just perform magic; he’s there to make magic fun and enjoyable. And in the end, that’s the best kind of performer: ones who are willing to do whatever it takes to make the audience enjoy each show, maybe even more than him.

Issy Simpson

Is there an age limit on talent? Not for Issy Simpson! That’s right; this talented young lady became one of Top Magicians in The World at just nine years old when she won Britain’s Got Talent. Wow…when I was nine I was just trying to figure out math… Not Issy though! However, after her win, things continued to move up for her. She’s received awards, sold-out shows, and even appeared on television, yet this young lady only continues to launch far ahead into the future. When you look at all the amazing things she’s accomplished, it’s no wonder she’s titled like “real-life Harry Potter.”

Adam Trent

Adam Trent is one such corporate magician. He is completely self-trained and delights in amazing his guests. Adam incorporates singing and comedy into his magic act.  Adam Trent has a knack for performing. He sets his act to music and interacts with it like it is a part of him. You feel like you are watching a musical performance while he is completing unbelievable magic card tricks right before your eyes. He is dynamic and one to keep an eye on.  He performs regular national and international TV appearances on  Disney Channel, Travel Channel, Joan Rivers Show, and SyFy Network, he is the future of magic!

Eric Jones

Eric Jones is a unique and talented magician out there. From his spin on classic card tricks to his fresh take on coins, it seems as if there isn’t anything this magician can’t do. Watch as he harnesses technology and captures the attention of his audience, a daunting task nowadays since technology rolled around. As you watch his skilled sleight of hand, you will be left awed and inspired. After all, this is the new age of magic.  An award-winning performer, Eric’s sleight-of-hand magic has been showcased at Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA, and NYC’s Monday Night Magic, the longest-running Off-Broadway magic show in New York.   As a corporate entertainer, he is sought out by Fortune 500 companies such as Merrill Lynch, State Farm, Coca-Cola and more.

Collins Key

Magic is me; this is who I am.” – Collins Key

His magic tricks are mind-blowing, bringing together outstanding close-up magic and incredible illusions to create a sensational overall performance.

Often dubbed as the pop star of magic, Collins Key will turn any event into a memorable experience, always getting his audience involved in his magic and mind-reading tricks.

Collins Key

This young magician comes as a breath of fresh air into a pretty saturated entertainment field. His exciting approach and charm will make your guests feel enchanted and dazzled during his performances!

 Jay Alexander

Jay Alexander is a top-tier entertainer, illusionist, and mentalist – always delivering a dynamic show that keeps guests engaged and excited throughout his performance.

He has many incredible tricks up his sleeve, from rope illusions and card tricks to number tricks and knife throwing. And all of them are guaranteed to benefit your event. Plus, he can customize his magic tricks based on your event.

Throughout his impressive career, Jay Alexander performed for top corporate leaders, such as Charles Schwab, as well as major celebrities like Robin Williams, Rolling Stones, and U2. And here’s what they had to say about his experience:

  • Robin Williams said Jay is “always a blast.”
  • David Crosby calls Jay “The Master of Bafflement.”
  • Bono of U2 described Jay in one word, “Astonishing.”

Dana Daniels

Why put just one magician onstage when you can get both Dana Daniels and his sidekick, a psychic parrot named Luigi? With Luigi as the straight man in Daniels’ hilarious magic show, the performance takes flight. It is easy to see why Daniels has opened for celebrities like Ray Romano and Charro.

Jeff Hobson


Jeff’s rapid-fire style keeps you on the edge of your seat. So does is off-brand humor. He’ll perform card tricks in the midst of seeming to goof it up and make you laugh the whole time.

Mat Franco

Mat Franco has such a boy next door style you just don’t see him coming. His tricks seem like they are too good to be true but darned if he does not make it happen every time. You do not want to look away because he is lightening fast. You do not want to stop listening because his delivery is fun.  Mat Franco is the first magician to win America’s Got Talent.

This is It. This is the apocalypse of magicians. This is the deciding factor between magic that was and magic that is to be. This is it. So, what do you think of the new age of magic? Is it everything you expected it to be? From Piff and Mr. Piffles to Jon Dorenbos and Issy Simpson, Eric Jones to The World’s Best Justin Flom, there is no doubt the apocalypse of magic has rendered the old ways of magic useless and created a new way of enjoying the show. Magical apocalypse begin!
