Chicago's Best Birthday Magician

Hi, I'm Scott Green. There's a big difference between a good magician and a bad one - and you're looking at Chicago's best.


1. Your child is my focus. He or she stars in the show and I make small adjustments during my performance to make sure your child is having the best time of anybody.

2. Your show is targeted to the age of the children. Young children need sillier magic and simple plots they can easily follow. Older children need strong magic and to feel they're being treated like adults. I'll take care of doing the exact right show for your group.

3. Adults have as much fun as children. My Yelp Reviews (#1 in Chicago!) all attest to this.

4. I'm a national award-winning comedy writer. Other magicians buy a trick from the magic store and perform it the same as everyone else. I create my own effects and write my own scripts - as a national award-winning comedy writer, 

I make sure all your guests - children and adults - have a great time. Everybody laughs, everybody participates, and nobody can believe their eyes.

Your child stars in the show. Depending on age and show package, this means performing a trick or two, raking in applause and cheers, and maybe even floating in midair.

No "kid tricks" in my show. Only incredible, original magic presented by me, a national award-winning comedy writer. That means every minute is fun - fun for you, fun for your guests, and fun for me, too.

A hysterical show that stars your birthday child and features nonstop audience interaction. See some of my favorite original magic that have made me a sought-after lecturer at magicians' conferences, like Not-A-Snake and the Mustache Ropes.

For ages 6-9


This is my #1 show. Your child will be suspended in midair and receive an incredible keepsake prop from the show. As funny and interactive as my other shows, The Better-Than-TV Show features all original magic you can't get from other magicians, much of it material I've performed on television.

For ages 10 and up

THE BIG SHOW (45 minutes)

This show has a hysterical, aggressive edge and incredibly strong magic. Not only won't the kids know how it's done, they won't even have a wrong guess. The show feels subversive, even though it's clean and family friendly. The birthday child stars in the incredible bicycle trick and the perilous egg trick.
