"Steven Craig is one of those rare magicians - he's a captivating magician in his own right, but he's also very funny. It's this humor that can keep adult audiences entertained while he performs magic tricks in front of kids. Even if you've seen tons of "kids magicians" before and groan, "Oh, this trick again." you'll still be entertained by Steven's take on that trick, whether it's a new story, new audience "assistant" that he's chosen.

I've seen Steven perform in front of large audiences and smaller ones, and he's able to enthrall his audience with a  variety of tricks and funny bits. If you have younger children, they'll love seeing a magic performance by Steven."

"I just wanted to thank you again for a great performance last night. The kids absolutely loved your show! My son said it was the best party he has ever had. The video testimonial I did does not do your work justice. I've had magicians here in the past and the short time you were here you far surpassed their acts. You made each child feel included and made them laugh throughout the entire show. I loved the attention you have for the birthday boy and appreciate the goodie bag you gave him as well. Thanks again so much! I will definitely spread the word. You are great at what you do!"

"Thank you Steven for an interactive, fun and funny show! Seeing the wonder on the kids' faces was priceless! And your grand finale, well worth the wait! I've have many parents ask me for a referral, and would be more than happy to see you perform at other parties!"

"A+++++++. Steven was amazing! I had 12 kids between the ages of 3-6 for my daughter's 5th birthday party and he took the time to interact with each child and made the birthday girl feel so special as his assistant. Even the adults had a good time!! I would highly recommend Steven for anyone's party and I plan on using him again in the future."

"What a great party! Steven was excellent to work with from beginning to end. I hired him to entertain at my son's 9th birthday party. We wanted a 30-minute show targeting older kids, followed by 30 minutes of time teaching the kids some tricks they could do on their own. The room was packed - 25 kids of all ages there - and he had them all enthralled. Even the adults were saying "How did he do that?". If you need a magician, you can't go wrong with Steven Craig!"

- Tammy K.


"Perfect addition to our 7 year old's birthday party. Steven was fantastic. He came on time, made do with our small living room, and made the kids literally squeal with delight for a half an hour. He then took some time after to make the birthday boy's little sister a special hat, and teach our son a magic trick. The icing on the cake was his live rabbit! I would certainly hire him again should we have the need."

"The kids are still talking about it! We were fortunate enough to have Steven Craig come for my son's 6th Birthday. The show 45 minutes and he had their attention the whole time. (Ages 2-6). I laughed out loud numerous times. The kids have been talking about it for days. Steven made everything easy. "Pickle Donut" is the new magic word in our house. Thank you for great birthday memories, Steven!"

- Jen O.


"Excellent performance! Steven performed for our son's 6th birthday party this past weeekend, and did a fantastic job! The children and their parents all raved about how funny and talented Steven is, and how seamless the performance was. His show was entertaining for all ages, from my 87 year old grandmother all the way to a 4 year old family friend. I would recommend him over and over again, you won't be disappointed!"

- Jessica B.


"Wonderful entertaining party! Steven did a great job at my 5 year old's birthday party. He kept 20 kids entertained and involved. The birthday girl was super happy. The kids and adults enjoyed and laughed! He brought an art activity for the kids which was great! Made lovely balloon animals for all the children. He made the event a big success! Thank you Steven! And his rates are reasonable too! Would definitely recommend to others who are looking for a magician for their event. And the kids loved the bunny. My daughter is still talking about magic tricks she learnt by being Steven's special assistant!"

- Mariam A.


"We hired Steven Craig to perform at our son's 3rd birthday party and he was awesome. There were kids from 2 years old through 7 years old and everyone loved it (and so did the adults). The magic was a lot of fun, but the best part wa the humor/comedy aspect to Steven's act. Both the kids and the adults were cracking up the whole time. I would absolutely recommend Steven to anyone looking for entertainment at a kids party."

- Julie T., Hopkinton, MA 


"Thank you so much for your excellent show at our Annual ISERG Gala on December 3rd 2017.

We have had wonderful reviews from the audience and here are some as quoted by them.

I was impressed by his professionalism and style. He seemed to have a lot under his sleeve to entertain the kids! He was very engaging and kid friendly (he invited them to come close to the stage). My daughter (10) and son (7) thoroughly enjoyed the show. At many points in the night my son could be heard laughing louder than the other children. I believe that for days after they tried doing some magic show tricks for my wife and me.

My two kids attended the magic workshop conducted by Steven @DELL EMC ISERG Gala. The kids were thrilled to learn lot of magic tricks. I could see the happiness from their face; they laughed a lot on that evening. It's been almost two months since the gala and they still remember the tricks. Quite often they do show the magic tricks to us and to friends on family get together.

We enjoyed your show and we would love to work with you in the future. Thank you."

- Aparna Amasundar, Global Lead, ISERG, DELL Technologies


"Steven, I'm not sure even where to begin in thanking you. Your efforts were tremendous and it showed.

The success of the event went far above anything I could have expected. Most commented on has been the professional quality of the entertainment, the wonderful choice of types of acts and the duration for which they performed. Everyone in town is raving and the accolades go mostly to you.

Based on the tremendous success of this our first ever children's festival, 1994 now looks definite. I look forward to working with you again.

Please extend my thanks and appreciation to Darcy and Cindy. Rumor has it they painted the faces of most every child in New England. I hope they have fingers left.

If there is anything that either I or the Tennis Hall of Fame can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask. Once again, thank you."

"Steven Craig Schwartz and his clowns have entertained our guests at the July Fourth Celebration at the Museum of Science for each of the last ten years. This family event which attracts a capacity crowd of 3000 guests each year offers three hours of festivities for children and adults from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. before the Esplanade Concert and the fireworks on the Charles River.

Steven does a very popular Magic Workshop. He demonstrates magic tricks and teaches young people how to do them. If a child learns a trick, he gives them the necessary equipment so the child can perform the trick for friends and family. Steven has fun with children of all ages and they have fun with him. Steven is a great entertainer and a great teacher.

Steven also hires five clowns for this event. Much to the delight of the children, the clowns are dressed like real clowns with bright colorful costumes and appropriate make-up. They don't look like people; they look like clowns from the circus, and the children are intrigued to be able to watch them close-up and even talk to them. The clowns juggle and make fanciful balloon hats and animals for our guests, young and old, which adds greatly to the festivities.

Steven has become an important member of our entertainment team for the July Fourth Celebration, and I hope that he will continue to be available to entertain and educate our guests in the coming years."

-Martha P. Leape, July Fourth Celebration Committee Member


“This afternoon you entertained at my daughter’s sixth birthday party. And I’m just calling to thank you because you did a phenomenal job and I didn’t really get a chance to talk to you. The bunny was an awesome touch. You taught the older kids those tricks at the end that was phenomenal. The goody bags are awesome. My daughter is showing everyone the disappearing coin trick. Excellent, excellent, excellent show. Well worth the money — above and beyond what I thought I was going to get. I really appreciate it.”

- Kathy Lowenberg, Connecticut

“I hired Steven to perform at my son’s birthday party and I found Steve to be extremely professional and very easy to work with. More importantly, the kids had a ball. He completely entertained the kids and my son had so much fun participating in the show.  I was called by two moms a few days after the party to tell me what a great time that their children had and wanted to know who I had hired.  I would absolutely love to have Steve perform again in my home.”

"Christ's Church Nursery School recently held a Dad's Night for all the children and their dads at our school and we were fortunate to have Steven Craig's 'Silly Time Magic Show' as our entertainment for the evening. Steven was a big hit with the children and adults. He was able to capture their attention and keep it throughout the 45 minute show. Even some of our more questioning boys were heard to utter "this has to be a magic show - how did he do that!" As director, I was delighted with Steven's command of the audience and how much he was able to involve the children in the magic of the show. In the past I have had to intervene to help the entertainment keep the crowd under control, but not this time. Steven was able to work magic himself. I was also pleased that Steven was able to gear his show to the age level of the children. All in all, we had a delightful evening with Steven and I would totally recommend him to other groups looking for some wholesome entertainment."

- Joanne Mazzeo, Director, Christ's Church Nursery School


“Thank you so much for a wonderful show. The kids and adults all loved it. I know we have some perfect pictures where the kids were awed and amazed by your humor and tricks!! Brett told me that this was a perfect day. Thanks for making me look like a great parent to my kid.

After calling around for magicians, I finally decided to take a chance on Steven Craig.  We were all thrilled by his humor, magic, and kindness to the children of all ages.  The kids were awed by his range of magic and kept them spellbound for the hour that he performed. He was even kind enough to show them some of his tricks and how they were done. My child had a wonderful birthday party and he told me later that day it was his favorite party of all time."

- Lori Goldman, Sudbury

"Steven was great! I hired him to perform and make balloon animals at Thorndyke Road School for our Annual Apple Fest this past fall and I'm so glad I did. He kept the kids entertained and engaged the entire time! The kids had a blast!! The whole process went smoothly and couldn't have been easier!! If you're looking for a magician, Steven Craig is your guy!!"

- Diane Casavant

“Thank you for making Victoria's first communion an extra special event. All of the children enjoyed the show immensely and the adults had a great time. As a matter of fact I had a few adults without children at the party and they were having as good of a time (if not better) as the kids! There were some really loud big belly laughs coming out of children and adults!

I have to thank you for making Rebecca feel as important as Victoria, and including her in your act. It is hard for a six year old to have all the attention placed in her sister, so thank you for that.

All of the parents commented in how wonderful it was that you taught the kids some tricks, and that they all come out with something to bring home with them.

Once again thank you, and I am sorry that you did not get to eat anything.”

- Cecilia Robicheau

They felt very special for that...so thank you again! I know that I will be in touch in the future!”

“Steven Craig's Magic Show was a great addition to our BackYard Family Movie Night and Fundraiser for the American Cancer Society - Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Steven was professional, responsive and just plain easy to work (& communicate) with during the planning phase for our big night. Even with bad weather and a need to postpone the event for a week - Steven was supportive and helpful.

With a crowd of 50+ parents and kids - and despite distractions of food, playground and a bouncy house - Steven captured the crowds attention. His entertaining magic and witty rapport with the kids engaged everyone from the very youngest up to the oldest. He kept the kids laughing, involved and guessing through out the show. It was a great night of fun.

Thank you Steven. We'll be calling you again. And we're happy to pass your name on to other family and friends - looking for a FUN, FAMILY-FRIENDLY ENTERTAINER for their next event. ”

- Laurie Hamilton Marshall, Vice President, Retirement Services / Site Strategy & Logistics

- Allison Mclam, Charlton


"Great entertainer for young and old! Steven performed at the 90th Birthday Party for guests ranging between 2 and 90 and he had the kids mesmerized and the adults laughing during the entire set. He was the hit of the party and we're looking forward to having him return for the 91st Birthday Party next year."

- Christine D.


“I just wanted to say thank you again for making our girls' birthday celebration so much fun! They both had sooo many laughs, suprises and wow moments throughout your performance. It was really special to watch. And Pickle Donut's grand appearance at the end was truly magical. You are great with kids and kept the adults entertained as well! We all had a blast.

Thank you again. We will spread the word.”

“Thank you again for your performance at the Roudenbush Community Center. The Fall Family Magic Show was a blast! We had a packed audience of kids and adults and you delivered for all ages. There was something for everyone; the gym was full of giggles!

We put on several shows yearly and have worked with a number of entertainers. I was delighted at how many kids you engaged and got to volunteer – even parents as well!

It was great fun, thanks again!”

- Ellen Wright, Roudenbush Community Center, Community Education Director

"Family friendly comedy for all ages! Steven Craig was an absolute blast to have at our circus. He is a very likeable and engaging individual. He was prompt and courteous. His show was family friendly and he involved children from the audience. We would definitely have him back again next year."

- Rhodys, R. N. C.


"Best Magic Show Ever!!! My husband and I were volunteering at the Peace Providence Family Festival this past Saturday, and we watched the BEST magic show EVER!!! Magician Steven had every child in the audience engaged!!! What an interactive show. As an adult, I probably enjoyed it more than the children...I cannot wait for Magician Steven to perform for my patients at Magnolia Pediatrics!!!"

- Linda D. V.


"Very good entertainment. We used Steven for our camp where we had over 50 children with ages ranges 3-11. He runs an incredible show and managed to engage all the children - the younger and the older ones. They were all entertained and captivated for his tricks!

We plan on using him again - he is well worth it. In my 5 years ‘experience, it is very difficult to find a magician that engages all ages (including the staff!) - where they are not bored or feel that the show is for little kids. His tricks and speaking skills really engage the crowd."

- Chabad, H. I. O. C. Y. M.


"Great time for Kids & Adults. We held our annual company outing that hosted around 100-120 employees and their families. Steven did an absolutely wonderful job at giving the audience of about 45 adults and kids a great magic show. He was very personable and did great at captivating everyone with his magic. The first part of his magic show was directed towards the general audience for all of us to enjoy and then he smoothly transitioned into a show that just amazed the younger kids. He took the time to add very personal touch and taught some of his magic to groups of kids along with some one on one. Steven was great to have for our company picnic. I would strongly recommend him to anyone wishing to have a great entertainment at their party or large outings. We will certainly be having him back next year.... Steven was welcomed addition to our annual function."

- Chip D.


"Show was great. Our group had 30 kids and he engaged them very well. Thank you Steven!"
