Who Is Magic Barry?

Magic Barry is much more than “just a magician.” In fact, he is more than “just Magic Barry.” Magic Barry (Barry Richards) began his entertainment “career” in the 3rd grade at Elementary School P.S. 76 in The Bronx, where he played the lead role of The Narrator… who turned out to be The Butler who “did it.”

After receiving great “reviews” from the 6th-grader drama critic for the school newspaper, Barry felt there was nothing left to achieve, so he abandoned his “career’ to pursue his other great talent—mathematics. Yes, Barry was only dabbling in performing until he could get his big break in the field of mathematics.

His mathematic skills eventually led him to become a mortgage broker in Los Angeles, where many people look great—but cannot do basic multiplication. However, fate would step in and alter his path once again.

Barry went into semi-retirement from the world of show business. He then moved to Charlotte, NC, where he was able to pursue another one of his passions…veterinary medicine.

No, Barry did not become a veterinarian. However, he did become the #1 salesperson for the largest veterinary laboratory in the world. For 15 years, Barry assisted many veterinarians, both by helping their patients through modern laboratory testing, and growing of their businesses…all the while becoming one of the most entertaining speakers at veterinary conferences and trade shows.

It was during these speaking engagements that Barry rediscovered his passion, and gift, for making people laugh. He abandoned his lucrative career in the veterinary world, and became a full-time entertainer at a wide variety of special events for both corporate and family clients.

Who Is Dancing Barry?

Dancing Barry is Magic Barry’s alter-ego…and he still makes occasional appearances at certain select events.

Dancing Barry is renowned as “The Ambassador of Enthusiasm” from his 7-year stint with the Showtime Era Los Angeles Lakers that had basketball Hall of Fame players Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and James Worthy. In addition, there was also Hall of Fame Coach Pat Riley, Hall of Fame Executives Bill Sharman and Jerry West, and Hall of Fame Broadcaster Chick Hearn.

In addition to his performances at the Lakers games, Dancing Barry was in constant demand at corporate functions in the Los Angeles area.

By combining his Magic and Comedy along with his “Dancing Executives” routine (using the actual executives from the companies that hired him), Barry was able to entertain vast numbers of people who could not get tickets to the sold-out Lakers games.

If you have Magic Barry come entertain at one of your events, be sure to ask him about the “Dancing Barry Option”…which will be 100% guaranteed to be a big hit with your audience.

2. Strolling Close-Up Magic

Most people have never had the thrill of seeing Close-Up Magic performed. Close-Up Magic is not “magic on a stage”…and it does not require the entire audience to “be quiet and watch the show.” That is why Strolling Close-Up Magic is such a great addition to any event—be it corporate or family-oriented. It can be used as a background entertainment option if your event is featuring a Deejay…especially if there are many non-dancers in the group. The audience will experience something new and unique…and they will greatly appreciate the person who decided to add that “something extra” to the event. Would that be you?

Benefits of having Strolling Close-Up Magic at your next event:

1- Who thinks about the non-dancers in an audience? Most people who hire a DJ just leave it at that. But, the non-dancers deserve some entertainment, too…don’t they?

2- Magic During the Cocktail Hour of Your Event. In addition, Close-Up Magic is a great ice-breaker during the cocktail hour of your event…especially if there are numerous people there who do not know each other.

3- Will your company have a Hospitality Suite where your Sales Reps might be trying to close some sales?

Ask Magic Barry, with his 25 years of corporate sales experience, how he can assist your sales team, by utilizing his Close-Up Magic miracles to help seal the deals. Magic Barry has performed professionally in 15 states, as well as in Japan, Canada, Costa Rica, Colombia, and even in Budapest, Hungary.


3. Karaoke

You want Karaoke? We’ve got Karaoke!
Hey… why not? If that is what you need to satisfy all the people at your next event (even if only 3 or 4 of them will be singing) then Magic Barry Entertainment can offer that option to you as well. We have more than 5,000 karaoke songs, plus we have the ability to fulfill any special requests for songs if you let us know prior to the event.


4. Deejay Music with Magic

Yes, there are many deejays to choose from…but how many can also perform Strolling Close-Up Magic while the music is playing?

When you hire Magic Barry Entertainment, we take advantage of the modern technology available to deejays. Why pay a deejay to stand behind his laptop for several hours, when you can have Magic Barry himself strolling through the crowd performing Close-Up Magic, while all the great music is automatically playing on the computerized deejay software. It’s like getting two entertainers for the price of one.

Here’s an interesting question: What are you planning for all the non-dancers at your event?

Most people never even think about this…and that is why many people leave a party earlier than the ones who are dancing. No party ever has 100% of the people up on the dance floor.

However, Magic Barry gives you a solution to this problem that you may not even realize that you have.
How does he do that? Modern Technology…and MAGIC! Think about it…what do all the other DJ’s do when they come to your event?

Answer: They stand behind a table, watching their laptop play the pre-loaded song list. Once in a while, they might load up a song that is not yet on the list. But that is about it.

Now…what does Magic Barry do while his laptop is playing the song list?
Answer: Magic Barry is strolling among all the guests who are sitting at their tables—all the non-dancers. And what is he doing? He is performing his world-class Close-Up Magic…thereby giving all the non-dancers a reason to stick around much longer, and to not feel as though they are “left out” of all the fun.


5. Company Olympics

Another great team-building event is to have a Company Olympics. This can take place at an outdoor venue, a hotel ballroom, or right in your company offices.

Magic Barry Entertainment will bring all the Company Olympics Games to your event. These will all be fun activities, but with a competitive element to them. There will be lots of laughs and enthusiasm when your company’s employees try their hand at all of the unique, interactive events that we will provide for you.

What Clients Are Saying…
