Magician in Minnesota
Hi From Norm! I hope you are enjoying the Holiday season. I have so much to be thankful for. It has been a busy season here and I enjoy hearing the laughter at the shows.
MN Vikings & Magic at Children’s Hospital
Three weeks ago I did magic for the children at the U. of M. Hospital again and once again the MN Vikings dropped in to greet the kids. Tyler Holmes, Geoff Scwartz, Charlie Johnson and John Sullivan with MagicNorm after visiting with the children. The next day several people mentioned that they saw me doing magic for the children on KARE-11 with the smiling children. Last year at this same event I was on WCCO-TV.
The Minnesota Children's Museum is a wonderful place to explore and I had fun performing there two nights to huge crowds. Barnes & Noble I had a blast doing book signings and magic shows at Barnes & Noble twice recently. Magicians tell their Secrets at Magic Convention in Boston. I was honored to be a part of the gala show at a magic convention in Boston in November. I also was one of three magicians invited to teach at this convention. I presented an hour and half lecture on my comedy techniques and original magic tricks and routines.
Toys for Tots
Last week I was the featured performer for a fundraiser banquet for this wonderful organization. This was an adult banquet that had me two years in a row and the organizer said, "Norm's show is awesome, everyone wanted him back." Yesterday I was fortunate to visit a small school in Minneapolis to bring magic and fun to the Toys for Tots toy distribution. I enjoyed seeing both ends of the Toys for Tots program. The fund raiser and the toy give away.
I also had a very fun visit to the Ronald McDonald House and will be going back to visit the families today. It is fun to see the kid's smiles and hear the laughter. We did a benefit 4 weeks ago for Jack and his family. One of the MN Wild greats also game to support the fundraiser.
August 2010 - Hello and welcome to a beautiful summer in Minnesota! In June I was in full swing presenting programs for High School Graduation Parties. Many of these clients I have invited me back for over 14 years. I am thankful to stay so busy. It really is fun to see the students and parents laugh and have a blast. The goal is to keep them off the streets after their graduation and hopefully save lives while they are having fun together in a safe environment.
Norm's Childrens books have now sold over 100,000 copies!It is exciting to see my books are in libraries across Minnesota and the nation. I've had calls from friends in many states saying that they have spotted these very nice magic books in their libraries. Capstone Press did a fabulous producing the books and you can find them on Amazon.com or MagicNorm.com.

Motivational Presentation on Teamwork and Service
Two weeks ago I was one of the presenters for a business group's annual retreat in Woodbury. They were very positive about my Motivational Keynote. I do many corporate presentations and would love to bring this program to your group. Please check: InspireBiz.com.

Amy James, Donna Valentine and Muss of the K102 Morning show. I was there on Monday morning for 40 minutes of comedy on the air with the K102 Wake-Up Crew.
"Thank YOU so much again for providing such fun. We had a great time!"
-Donna Valentine, Morning Host K102Did you see me on TV with the MN Vikings?
It was at Amplatz Children’s Hospital at U of MN for a special event for the kids. It was fun to present some magic for the children at the hospital party and suddenly 10-12 of the big Viking Players strolled in. Big guys like magic too. It was fun to see their amazed faces. Everybody is a kid when it comes to magic.
Several people called me and said they saw me on TV that evening on several stations! I had a show somewhere else that night and did not catch the news – I am glad I wore my purple Vikings colored tux. This is a great outreach for the Vikings to help the kids!
Yesterday I returned from Pennsylvania where I taught at a convention of entertainers. I teach my comedy writing techniques, as well as several classes on my original magic inventions. After the big awards banquet on Saturday night, I presented my stage comedy show. This convention has been meeting for 28 years and Sandi – the President - said it was the best dinner entertainment they have had. I just like to make people laugh!
This December I will be back entertaining the families at the Minneapolis Airport for the Delta Pilots for Kids program. This will be my 7th time working with the pilots and their charity event. They invited me several times when they were Northwest Pilots. They have new uniforms and a super program where under privileged families visit Santa, have treats, do activities and see some comedy magic. The highlight is a fantasy ride to the North Pole on a real airplane.
We have several corporate Holiday parties booked and there are still a few good dates open. If you, or a friend are looking for a wild yet clean comedy and magic show – I’m your guy!
