  • - Look for someone who can speak well over the phone. If he’s able to impress you over the phone, he can also address the vast crowd.
  • - Choose somebody who is not a jack of all trades. Somebody, who is a perfectionist in one genre will indeed be a better choice than others.
  • - The skill level of the magician that you choose is very, very important. If the magician is not able to fool the audience, then he’s not an entertainer.
  • - Lastly, you must be able to trust the magician and judge his capabilities well before you hire him.
