For birthdays, Flabbergast provides a fun, private, and personal 30-minute comedy wizard magic show with puppetry, suitable for all ages, giving special attention to the birthday child as “the star of the show”!
We are currently observing health recommendations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic by offering the following social distancing options for Summer 2020:
1 – Virtual show to be presented live on ZOOM, Google Meet, Skype, or FaceTime, at a mutually arranged date and time. You host or I host and email the password 24 hours before showtime. Invite guests to participate from home! You are welcome to record.
SAFE, INFORMAL, PERSONAL – Call for a quote!
2 – Purchase a personalized video show on .mp4 file, professionally recorded in studio. The video can be sent by email link to my Dropbox. You may instead choose to view the show with a private password to an unlisted YouTube video, which you can then download within 48 hours after the birthday party, at which time the video will be taken off YouTube. (See my YouTube preview! https://youtu.be/cjjlLDQBsTY) Please allow five business days for delivery of a recorded show.

3 – Live, in-person show with cautious social distancing, for an audience of no more than ten people at your chosen venue. Audience members must be seated 8-20 feet away from the performer, and 6 feet apart from each other, (families seated together). Audience participates verbally and with gestures, no actual contact. Includes a magical gift bag for the birthday child!
