Unbelievable magic for Every Event.
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Alex Offenkrantz. I am a New York based magician who performs all over the world. Every night, I am lucky to be a part of someone's special event, whether it be a birthday, trade show, or holiday party. I show up, make people laugh and say "That can't be possible!" What could be better!
Magic makes events memorable. And the real magic isn't in the cards, or the sleight of hand moves I have practiced more times than I can count. The real magic is in connecting with people, and welcoming them into my world where anything is possible. I really can't overstate how much fun it is to do magic. Every time I approach a new group it's inevitable that the unexpected will happen. Because I never know what people will say or do! And all of a sudden it feels like we're all playing in this sandbox of the impossible. Only magic, where you are a part of the show, is this reactive. There is no fourth wall. I love responding to what people give me, whether it's skepticism, unadulterated joy, or witty remarks, you are the element that makes what I do fun. Forget performing in front of a mirror. I want to perform for you. With you.
After having the priviledge to perform for celebrities such as Matt Damon, Chris Hemsworth, Naomi Watts, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and Prince Moulay Rachid of Morocco, I am comfortable sharing what I love with anyone. Something I am lucky enough to do year round, appearing at private and corporate events for Google, Lenovo, Supergoop, and Apple to name a few.
I have been the resident magician at Maison Close Soho since their opening in 2022.
Alex has been performing magic professionally since age of 7, when he made his parents drive him to the Flea Market in West Palm Beach, to Mr A's Magic Shop, where he would sit and chat with the adults about magic, like 7 year olds do. His first restaurant gig was that same year at a local deli. They couldn't legally pay him (child labor laws) so they compensated him with chicken fingers.
He went on to become a resident magician at the upscale Japanese restaurant Ninja in Tribeca for 6 years before transferring to Maison Close.
Alex is the inventor of hundreds of tricks and can't help performing wherever he goes.
He has a BFA in Acting from Marymount Manhattan College, and has performed at Lincoln Center and Off-Broadway.
My wife and I just had Alex at our son's Bar Mitzvah in the UES, and we can't recommend him highly enough. I had seen Alex performing at Ninja NY, and thought it was the best sleight of hand I had ever seen. He not only made everybody feel great, but he was hysterically funny, and my son and his friends couldn't stop raving about him. We've already been asked for his information by other families in attendance because they want him at their childrens' Mitzvot.
Alex is simply amazing! He was easy to communicate with, showed up on time, and his performance was mind blowing. Alex is a true professional talent! My husband and guests were wowed. Everyone commented on how impressed they were and how they could watch Alex perform magic all night. We would love to hire him again!
Alex is an amazing magician!! We hired him for a 30th birthday party and our entire experience with him was fantastic! He was so easy to communicate with beforehand, lit up the room with all of his truly special magic, and was the talk of all of our guests. Highly, highly recommend.
