Hi Gauteng Moms (Dads too),
My name is Stevie. I'm Gauteng's hilarious heart-warming birthday party magician. I love making your children laugh, I love making families laugh, I love performing knee - slappingly funny magic shows, but that isn't enough for me.

I take very seriously the opportunity I'm given to leave a positive lasting impression on young minds. That's why my shows feature the much talked about EFZ... the Embarrassment Free Zone. Simply, it's the bedrock of positive encouragement that all my silliness and hilarity is built upon. Kids in my shows are free to be shy, boisterous or anywhere in between. Whatever their personality they can safely be themselves.

So in my shows not only does your child get to roll around the floor in fits of laughter they also get a good ol' boost to their self esteem thrown in for free.

Anyway enough about me already, let's talk about you.
Parenting can be overwhelming nowdays. Expectations of bigger and glitzier birthday parties are upon us. Frankly it can all end up a big headache but...I aim to make your day STRESS FREE and easy...

The Perfect
Birthday Party Entertainment
for Gauteng Kids

Stevie and his Big Red Box of Magic

Three words sum up what 3 to 10 year olds want. Silly Silly Silly. And that's just what Stevie and the Big Red Box of MAGIC delivers. The birthday party entertainment begins the moment I come through the gate. The funniest and friendliest kids party magician in Gauteng has arrived.

Knee slapping hilarity, amazing tricks professionally and skillfully delivered, giveaways, audience participation, delightful balloon animals, feel - good music; these are all a given. I go beyond that.

I connect with your child and their friends,
They experience genuine wonder and laugh like never before,
You feel great as a parent,
Together we make this Ďtheí birthday party entertainment your child will remind you about for years to come.

I pay particular attention to the birthday child and personalise tricks so they feel special. I encourage active participation but NEVER force any child into any situation that's uncomfortable for them. My shows are an EFZ (embarrassment free zone), as all birthday party entertainment should be.

Look at these kids below enjoying one of my shows.

Here's how my hilarious show goes.

  • I meet the children and let them guide me to the performing area.

  • To the sounds of toe tapping, feel - good music from my self contained PA system I spend five minutes building rapport with them before the show. This is hilarious from the word go.

  • All aboard, the hugely interactive magic show begins.

  • The kids delight as magic wands take on a life of their own and keep 'comically' hitting me. (It's what magicians have to put up with.)

  • Coins magically start appearing from children's ears. First one, then a few, then the entire audience is throwing imaginary coins. This has to be seen to be believed.

  • Hernando the World's Strongest Flea charms everyone with his super human feats.

  • Then Peeky the Cheeky Monkey has all the children giggling and rolling and jumping - quite literally... Kids go crazy over this first rate birthday party entertainment.

  • Some juggling to lots of ooh's and aah's then the rest of the show is devoted to your child.

  • They get to wear a magical magicians hat and have some giggles with me - a terrific photo here for your family album - then with all their friend's encouragement they magically make a R20 note which is my gift to them. It comes with with a classy, personalised birthday card that looks great alongside their ' magician' picture in your photo album.

  • Now I present the birthday child with a really cool crazy balloon hat.

  • To finish the show they magically produce lollipops for all their friends. No one misses out.

    Do you reckon these kids are enjoying Stevie's magic show?

  • Parents love knowing they made the right choice booking Stevie and the Big Red Box of MAGIC.

    Birthdays are special times and the birthday party entertainment should be special too. If youíre anything less than happy that I donít make it something to remember, simply donít pay me. No questions asked. Thatís my guarantee to you.

    Please say you saw this on Jozikids.

    Dear Stefan,

    Thank you so much for the show today, the kids loved it (and the adults were laughing for almost the entire show too).

    Good Day Stevie

    I would like to thank you for coming today. Your show was literally the highlight of the party.

    Thank you for your punctuality.
    What I mostly appreciated with your show was the crowd engagement. We absolutely enjoyed how all the kids were engaged and were having fun. Every single moment that you were doing your showcase everyone was engaged, even the adults.

    You are absolutely funny. Thank you for making Oratile's day.

    Hi Stevie

    Thank you so much for coming through on Saturday.

    Riley, the other children and the parents thoroughly enjoyed the show. Both children and parents could not stop talking about it afterwards, with some of the older children trying to figure out how you did the tricks.

    You held the children's attention the entire time and I think many of them wanted the show to go on.

    Riley felt extra special and loved being involved in the tricks. I can say, hands down, your show has been the best magician show I have seen at a party and I will highly recommend you.

    Thank you once again

    Hi Stevie
    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for making Lunghas 5th year birthday party such a success.

    The kids and adults had awesome time. Lungha is still talking about you and the event. The highlight is when she thinks she is a magician, you really kept her and the kids busy. She feels rich with the gift she made from magic.

    We have lots of pictures, really amusing and priceless moments.

    The kids had a ball.

    We will definitely see you again. The brother JJ loved you that he wants you when he turns 8 years old. Do you do for this age group?

    Hi Steve

    I just wanted to say a very big thank you for the show you did for Kiran today. The kids had a ball, which was apparent from their reaction to the show and the fact that they sat enthralled the whole way through. I have watched several videos that were taken during the show, and the joy and excitement on Kiranís face made my day. It is a real skill to keep children that age entertained and so happy, so thank you so much for helping to make Kiranís day very special indeed.
