You are throwing a party. Time and money have been put into organizing the food, drink, and set dressing.  There are dozens of guests; more than you can spend much one on one time with.  Some know each other. Others are grouping into cliques, refraining from socializing.

If these people do not interact with each other, friendships will be missed out on, business connections will not be made and your party will soon be forgotten. I am in the business of making your event a memory that will last forever.

By giving your guests a shared experience, they have something to talk about even if they don't know each other at all.A magician gives people something to talk about; an icebreaker.

When it comes to bringing a performer to your party, be it a barbecue, cocktail party, or a black tie wedding, it is important that the performance help set the tone. Everything I do is geared toward helping the party run smoothly and showing everyone a good time.

My magic even helps out  when your event goes awry.  When the kitchen is running behind, or the guest of honor is taking his or her time to arrive, I can pacify bored guests, adults or (if needs be) children. I've even distracted dangerously drunk party guests while their cab comes to collect them early. 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, a London-based club for magicians and the most exclusive magic society in the world.

Mark Philip Lichtenstein completely rocks.
— Kylie Edmond, Rock & Rawhide
Brilliant. F***ing brilliant.
— Paul Haggis, Academy Award Winning Screenwriter and Director
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.
— Yinka Shonibare, MBE, RA
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.
— Julie Chen, Activities Manager, The Yale Club NYC
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.
— Mrs. Judy Hamilton & Mr. Douglas A. P. Hamilton, Managing Partner, Hamilton Investment Partners
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.
