What makes Zig Zag the Magic Man the best choice in children's entertainment for your birthday party?

Your child and guests will be absolutely thrilled to see what he has in store at each and every show.  From puppetry to juggling to magic to physical silliness, music, games and improvisation Zig Zag interacts frequently with every audience in a very natural, encouraging and inspirational way.  The big laughs you'll see and hear come from time tested funny routines kids have been watching at 1000's of his shows from New York to Florida.  (He currently serves Maryland, DC and Virginia)

Zig Zag is focused on providing an exciting, highly interactive and enriching experience.  What do we mean by enriching?

Never ordinary, it’s all-extraordinary. Zig Zag knows just how to light up the eyes of children of all ages. He has been doing just that for 1000’s of shows since his humble beginning working for New York’s #1 kid’s magician, Silly Billy.

His unique style lets your child be a major part of the show by motivating and then responding to cues he learned while teaching music in New York and Maryland schools.  When parents say they are looking for a versatile entertainer for a kid's party Zig Zag's nose itches more and more than ever before.  I think it's becoming an epidemic! Find out why.

Zig Zag is also known as Michael Kurtz to his customers (Every superhero needs a secret identity, right?). Call me Mike if you'd like, and I'll take the time to make sure that my services are right for your audience. There are several choices so you don't need to hire someone different for a Great Show and Face Painting and Balloon Art, Games or Cotton Candy. Just give me a call and I'll take care of it all. Talk to you soon. Zig Zag Zooooom!

"He was prompt, stayed until every kid left with a balloon and kept the kids engaged

the entire time.  Great job!"
