You throw a party. You put time and money into organizing good food, good drink, and pleasant surroundings.  There are enough guests that you do not have enough time for all of them. Consequently, some guests do not socialize, speaking only to the people they already know. They don't get to know your other guests. Eventually they leave, bored.

Brilliant. F***ing brilliant.
— Paul Haggis, Academy Award Winning Screenwriter and Director

Friendships are missed out on. Business contacts are not made. Your party will soon be forgotten. I am in the business of making your event a memory that will last forever.

By giving strangers a shared experience, they have something to talk about other than the weather. My magic bonds the audience together, and I leave them excited about learning each others' perspectives on what just happened. I put your guests at ease and give them the ultimate icebreaker.

When it comes to bringing a performer to your party, be it a black tie wedding, a fund raiser, or just a barbecue, it is important that any performer help set the tone you want. Everything I do is geared toward helping the party run smoothly, and giving your guests something positive to remember, years down the line.

My magic even helps out  when your event goes awry.  When the kitchen falls behind, or the guest of honor takes his or her time to appear, I keep your guests from caring about any of that. When so many people have gravitated toward the bar that getting drinks has become unpleasant, I'll pull several people away from the bar to witness a miracle that just happens to take place in another room. I've even occupied dangerously drunk party guests while their cab comes to collect them.

This means your staff can get their act together, your front of house can reboot the computer with the reservations on it, or the bride and groom can take a little longer to get changed. When your guests never know what is happening behind the scenes, your event will be like a slick magic show.

I perform for charities including Rock and Rawhide, The Make a Wish Foundation, The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, and America Needs You. I've performed at 54 Below, The Metropolitan RoomA Taste of MagicMuseum Hack, and a host of venues from London England to a mountainside wedding in Jackson Hole.

I am a member of The Magic Circle, the most exclusive magic society in the world.

His close-up magic is astounding, and creates a memorable experience for your guests. I believe that Mark’s rate is very reasonable, considering how much value he can add to an event, and would strongly encourage you to consider him for your next party.

Working with Mark was great as he was able to develop a new concept for an artwork which I would have not been able to embark on before.

Mark Philip Lichtenstein completely rocks.
— Kylie Edmond, Rock & Rawhide
Mark Lichtenstein performed at our wedding in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Several months later our friends still get excited talking about his magic. Many wedding guests commented in their thank you letters that they were blown away by his memorable metal bending and mind reading. We found Mark professional and charming, and would recommend him to anyone. He would certainly be a highlight of any party where he performs.
— Brian M. Fenty, Executive Chairman,
We’re still scratching our heads as to how he seemed to defy the laws of nature right in front of us. Having a magician is a really great talking point at a party, creating a lasting memory. Mark is a great guy and we certainly look forward to our next opportunity to see him in action.
