Hi, Mike (and Marilyn, et al!)- It was great speaking with you. I'm holding November 4th for you to do some sort of magic performance for you and your guests. My fee for an interactive parlor magic and mind reading show at private events is $800. This would include a full interactive 45 minute show of close up magic and mind-reading, and a short instructional session (teaching the kids (or anyone interested) a couple of beginner's magic tricks that they can keep and perform for their own friends and family.
I've also listed a number of other options we offer below, should you find them of interest for this or future events.
Let me know your thoughts; we're always happy to work with you to create the experience best that suits your needs. Looking forward to speaking again, soon!
Also, here are links to my two Penn & Teller Fool Us appearances from 2015 and 2020. (I believe you said you watched one of them; wasn't sure which, but they were both fun to perform.)
Magical options to consider for future events:
Interactive Strolling Magic and Mind Reading for all of the guests (perfect to engage and entertain guests throughout the event without interrupting the flow of other activities going on. This is a mixture of sleight of hand and mind-reading magic; strong interactive impossibilities mixed with fun, light-hearted interaction to get (and keep) everyone talking.
Interactive Strolling Plus Short Featured "Stage" performance with the birthday guest. I can set up a brief (10 minute) performance piece where the guest of honor either performs a fun and funny mind reading bit (no practice necessary for this!) or some other customizable magic moment as part of the event. If you choose to go this route, I'll detail out exactly what you and the audience will experience so there will be no unwanted surprises or stress from this on the day.
Francis Menotti One-Hour Stage Show with custom presentations that highlight the event's importance, plus an hour of strolling magic and mind reading ~ (Price varies dependent upon size of audience, length of show, and whether it is a private or company event)
"Couple of Magicians" Show: This duo show with my partner Lindsey Noel is a fast, fun, and funny presentation of magic that caters to your families and guests with customized magic and the opportunity to make guest(s) of honor magically appear. Alternatively to have them involved in some featured magical moment where they become the magician.

Thanks! I'm happy to discuss mixing and matching or finding other options that would best suit your needs.
