About Zoom Magic and Live Virtual Entertainment
Zoom Magic has the incredible power to bring people together from all corners of the earth for a live, interactive, and deeply human experience that feels like everyone is in the same room. Regardless of a pandemic, interactive virtual magic is a dynamic tool for helping people connect with one another in the modern age. After over 1200 virtual performances since March of 2020, I truly believe that interactive virtual magic holds the potential to foster more inclusion, equality, and joy to the world. My performances are ideal for engaging audiences during online corporate events, off-site employee appreciations, virtual sales kickoffs, global all hands meetings, remote team building, company socials, town halls, executive roundtables, charity galas, and just about any other virtual gathering one might conjure up.

But the pandemic is over!?
Zoom magic in a post pandemic world is incredibly exciting. It now has room to grow unbound. Distanced from zoom fatigue. No longer virtual entertainment for a virtual event. Rather a unique opportunity for members of your community to connect, engage, and be entertained in a way that you might have never imagined. A truly special social event that is both incredibly efficient for you to provide, and incredibly convenient for all of your guests to attend. An experience that will bring joy, laughter, surprise, wonder, and an unforgettable sense of togetherness to those who participate.
The power of online magic combined with virtual meetings
Virtual meetings allow companies to connect with large groups of employees or clients in real-time and deliver a message or service by incredibly efficient means. The power of this is undeniable. Interactive virtual magic is a versatile tool for engaging, dare I say captivating, this valued virtual audience. On its own magic is exciting, mysterious, suspenseful, surprising, and rational all at the same time. It inherently includes the audience in a way that few performances do and brings impossible moments to a believable world. However, when confined inside a zoom meeting, this extraordinary artform can create an entirely unique, immensely entertaining, and thought-provoking experience that can scale to any size audience and reach every corner of the earth at the click of a cursor.

Harrison has performed virtual shows of every size, all across the world, and has thousands of hours of experience performing magic and mentalism for all ages.
“Harrison was not only a pleasure to work with but FUN to watch! We did a virtual 45 minute show and 15 minute workshop with a corporate work team of about 100 spread all across the world. First, it was a breeze to communicate with Harrison and get the event set up. At the actual Zoom event, Harrison went to work quickly involving everyone and taking us away from our work life, and was thoroughly engaging and funny, not to mention mind boggling! My email has been going off all day with team members sending their thanks and praise of Harrison. Don't hesitate for a minute to book him for your corporate virtual event - a video call has never been so amazing!”
“Harrison was the entertainment for my departments holiday party this year, and though we all couldn't meet in person Harrison made the virtual celebration an unforgettable one! Folks cannot stop talking about how fun and amazing our time was with Harrison. You think "how can he do magic virtually?" Well let me tell you, it was MORE impressive he was able to do what he did virtually! 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for party/work entertainment or something to spicy up your team buildings or group meetings!"

“We hosted a virtual event with Harrison for our largest customer. It was OFF THE CHARTS awesome! Our customers included their kids and it was such a success. Harrison has mastered not only his work but the art of engaging a customer who is remote! You need to consider Harrison for your next customer event!"
“Harrison did a virtual Zoom event for about 40 of our employees and it was FANTASTIC! He engages with the audience and really makes it inclusive. The virtual aspect doesn't hinder the show at all - it's actually more surprising when he picks a card you are thinking of because you aren't even in the same room together! Our CEO is already asking for the next magic show! Thank you Harrison”
"I cannot imagine having had a better experience than the one we had with Harrison. He performed for our school community, an incredible opportunity for us to bring together parents and their children, grandparents, and alumni in a unique and fun way that appealed to all ages. Harrison brings energy to a new level, and engaged everyone with smart and funny banter that had us all laughing the entire time--that is when we weren't trying to figure out how HE DID IT! He is an amazing magician & mentalist, as well as a superb performer. And best of all, he made the process about as easy as a process could be. Such a great evening for our community. Highly recommend! Thank you, Harrison."
"Harrison was amazing! Lots of "How did he do that?!?", shocked faces and also a LOT of laughing. His energy and the way he manipulated the Zoom meeting was unique - definitely used the virtual platform to his advantage and was extremely engaging. It was unusual to be so engaged on a Zoom call (especially with everyone's massive Zoom fatigue). I highly recommend him!
Also - if you're looking for something for a board of directors or a serious group, use Harrison! I had a Board of Directors meeting and was nervous about joking around with them since they are mostly pretty serious. He perfectly toed the line between funny/teasing and never crossed the line to inappropriate insults. I received a TON of emails stating how amazing he was from the group.
Again, HIGHLY recommend!!"
"The experience with Harrison Kramer was amazing. I have hosted several virtual team building activities and this was by far the easiest to setup and the most entertaining. It was great to see co-workers in living spaces outside of their home office and including their families in the show was a home run. Harrison’s tricks were mind boggling and the expression on the teams faces was incredible. He was interactive with the audience and every minute was entertaining. Harrison was super easy to work with and I would highly recommend using him for your team building events."
What makes an online interactive virtual magic show so unique?
The live online interactive virtual magic show is a completely new genre of magic performance. To the uninitiated, it might seem that magic and mentalism would not translate to a Zoom-based experience. One might think, “Well, he switched the cards off the screen.” or “Let me shuffle!” and yes, these are things for both the magician and the audience to consider. However, an experienced virtual magician or mentalist does not let these important considerations get in the way. In fact, he or she can use the zoom format to make the magic even stronger. In a virtual magic show every single audience member has a front row seat. Every guest has the opportunity to see the show exactly how the magician intends them to. Every aspect of the performance can be perfectly curated as if it were meant for a single spectator. In many ways, these virtual shows can be even more intimate than a live in person magic show. For for over 2 years now I have seen reactions of wonder and astonishment from living rooms and offices across the world. I believe that virtual magic is here to stay and that these events are unique beyond compare.
What is my skill set?
In March of 2020 I did my first virtual magic show. Since then, I have performed for over 1000 virtual events all over the world. During these hundreds of hours of real world virtual event flight time I have developed a very unique skill set. More important than any clever trick, I have developed the ability to plan, facilitate, and host virtual events in such a way that the guests are made to feel truly together and at ease in the virtual space. My extensive knowledge of the Zoom conferencing platform combined with unmatched real world experience as a virtual entertainer provides me with a refined perspective, tool box, and roadmap for helping my corporate clients produce truly engaging interactive virtual events for their guests.
Virtual magic workshops & team building activities for Zoom
The virtual workshop is a perfect addition to any show. Your guests will receive a short list of household materials through which they will unlock an incredible amount of impromptu magic and mentalism. During the program I teach sleight of hand and mind reading tricks that help us discover the devious arts of misdirection and psychology that apply to all magic. Aside from tricks, guest will learn magician style thinking for practical skills such as how to secretly obtain objects from their pockets without drawing suspicion, how to conceal objects in the hands while making them seem empty, and most importantly how to us perfectly time misdirection to make all your secret moves and mischievous deeds go unnoticed. The workshop can be structured as a lecture or interactive team building exercise and can vary in length from 15 to 60 minutes.

Unmatched Knowledge and Experience
What style of magic and mentalism will Harrison perform?
As a professional online magician and virtual mentalist, I specialize in a variety of different styles of magic and mind-reading. My performances use mostly everyday objects or borrowed items and are based on a blend of technical sleight of hand, psychology, and showmanship. As virtual magic is a very new concept, much of the material that I perform in my online magic show was created with the sole purpose of being experienced virtually. Watch the Videos!

I offer a wide range virtual magic shows, online team building activities, and in-person performances, depending on the scope of your event.

Discounts are available in many situations and sometimes the show will be entirely free if provided by my Humanitarian Magic initiative. To get a quote for your virtual event or NYC magic show, please fill out the “Check Availability” form or give me a call. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Can I negotiate with a virtual magician?
I recognize that all virtual events are different and can many times offer programs at the rate that works best for the client. This is because I love what I do, and want to share it with the world. If there is a specific rate that you have in mind I would be happy to know it. Numbers do not offend me and I would be honored to work with you.
How can I pay for my magic show?
Full payment for my performance is due anytime before the start of the show. Secure transactions can be made by credit card, ACH, wire Transfer, certified check, as well as on various other payment platforms. For NYC based events the balance can be paid at the event. More information about making your payment can be found Here!
What does the booking process look like?
The booking process is pretty simple. Once we've determined that I'm the right fit for your online event, and have chosen your desired program, you will received an email confirmation. Here you will find all the details for your show, the designated zoom link, promotional materials for the performance, instructions for your guests, and details on paying your balance.
Do you send me a Zoom link or do I provide my own?
All Virtual Magic event confirmations come with a designated zoom link that you will be able to send to your guests.

Is it possible for my guests to hang out after the virtual magic show?
Yes! After the show it is very easy for me to make you host and leave the meeting so that you can enjoy some time with your friends and colleagues. Please let me know ahead of time if you would like to use the link before or after the show as special arraignments must be made if I have another engagement.
Is the virtual magic show show better for an audience of 10 guests than it is for 1000 guests?
The zoom show does not change significantly based on the number of guests in attendance. Intimate shows have a certain charm but a large zoom audience is always spectacular! I have performed virtual shows for audiences as small as 2 people on one screen and as large as 5,000 guests in a zoom webinar.
Is the show appropriate for all ages?
All of my online magic shows are engaging and appropriate for any age audience member. As a corporate magician, performing for virtual events all over the world, I am constantly mindful of my audience to be sure my material best fits the moment.
What is the difference between a magic show and a mentalism show?
A magic show is a performance where the magician performs tricks that appear to defy the laws of physics. A mentalism show is a performance where the magician uses their powers of observation, deduction, and influence to perform feats that appear to be supernatural. My virtual and in-person performances combine both magic and mentalism for performance style that can best be described as "Mental Magic".
What is the difference between Parlor Magic and Strolling Magic?
Parlor magic is performed in front of an intimate seated audience of up to 100 guests, typically after dinner as the main event. Strolling Magic is performed in close quarters with just a few people at a time, typically roaming around a cocktail party or corporate reception.
Who are your biggest influences in magic?
Derren Brown and Juan Tamariz are some of my biggest influences in magic and Mentalism. Both are at the top authorities in their perspective fields and place a large emphasis on psychology and misdirection during their performances. Other important influences of mine include David Blaine, Apollo Robins, and Chan Canasta. Finally, I have also been influenced tremendously by the New York City magic community as a whole. Without the NYC magic scene I would not be where I am today.
What are your hobbies outside of performing virtual magic shows?
Outside of virtual magic I enjoy, darkroom photography, acting like I can skateboard, an amazing cookout or picnic, and hanging out with my wife and daughter. I'm also currently working on some cool projects like Magic Show NYC & Tonight Crowd!
