Children’s Magic Shows
Marko’s appeal is universal and has entertained from 3-year-olds right through to very old people! (Some people were so old they spent the entire show asleep!). However, Marko is truly a specialist in the entertainment of younger audiences. His magic is amazing, funny and at times ridiculous, but will keep boys, girls and sleepy cats entertained from 45 minutes to 2-hour party extravaganzas.
Marko’s magic has fooled audiences all over the country. At times Marko has even been fooled himself until he looked up the explanation on YouTube. Drawings come to life, coins appear from nowhere and water passes straight through a spectator’s tummy. A mind-reading monkey and a magical sheepdog both regularly appear in Marko’s fantastical and magical show.
