Let me make your child's birthday party extra special with a ton of incredible magic, side splitting silliness and more fun than you can poke a magic wand.
And as much as I love showing off, I'm all about making your child the star of the show, letting them perform the big fat finale.
I've entertained at 4000 children's parties around Melbourne over the past two decades and I'd love to make your next party 4001.
Check out the three packages I offer for Melbourne children's parties.

My great big fat magic show with all the trimmings.
I can provide full a professional PA system for larger groups.
Everything in the 45 minute package plus after the show, I'll perform close up tricks for the kids where the magic happens right under their noses.
PLUS I'll teach a special trick to the birthday person!
Everything in the 60 minute package PLUS I'll run a magic workshop with the kids that will let them turn everyday objects from around the house into amazing magic tricks!
AND the birthday person receives a very special magical gift!

"Wow, thank you for your enthusiastic attitude, high excitement show. The kids loved you.
I was very pleased that even though we had a break to have some party food, Melbourne Magician Tricky Nick was still around the table to keep the kids laughing and under control.
"Thanks Trick Nick for making our son feel super special."
"Just dropping a line to say that your performance at my nephew, Alex's 4th birthday party on Sunday 9th September was wonderful.
Not only did you capture the full attention, participation & imagination of the young children but you also thoroughly entertained the adults too!
We were all left mesmerized and 'tickled pink'! Thank you for a wonderful performance. I look forward to when my young Miss is old enough to have you attend one of her parties".

Frequently Asked Questions
How many kids can we invite?
As many as you like! For children's birthday parties, there is no limit on the number of kids.
How much space to do you need?
Around 2.5 metres by 2 metres for the show plus space for the kids to sit. Just make sure it is not set up in an area where adults needs to walk though like in front of a doorway or thouroughfare.
Can we do the show outdoors?
If you've got a shady spot like a vernada or covered deck we totally can. However, inside is always preferable as Melbourne weather changes at the drop of a top hat.
What age is best for your shows?
Kids and adults over three love my shows. Each show is adjusted to suit the age of the audience.
Can you perform in a restaurant?
Absolutely! Just let the staff know that I'll be coming and ask them to hold off serving the kids food until after the show.
