“Performance was above and beyond our expectations…”
In most industries, trade shows, association events and chamber sponsorships are required if not common place. A major event came up in the second half of 2015 and I wanted to take it up a notch. My first thought was the Wizard of Sorts. I wanted an interactive presentation that would draw in attendees, prospects, along with current clients.

Edd Fairman, the Wizard of Sorts did that and so much more. His process is extensive, starting by learning your business and what makes you different from your competition. We were impressed by his professionalism and preparation, but the day of performance was above and beyond our expectations. Everyone that passed our booth along with others from rows away was drawn by his show. The close up magic combined with our company message kept us on top of mind weeks after the event.

If you are interested in being on the top of your prospects and clients mind, I recommend using Edd Fairman to get that message across in a unique and refreshing way. – Scott Day (Coaching Financial Concepts, Des Plaines, IL)

“People are still talking about his show…”

“He dealt well with the varied personalities of the children…”
Edd Fairman delighted our audience of parents and children (ranging in age from 3-14). He dealt well with the varied personalities of the children. He accommodated to our performance space and was easy to deal with on short notice. He was very flexible and put our needs first. I would hire Edd Fairman again in a heartbeat and recommend him highly. – Dr. Peg Hanrahan (Celebration, Chicago IL)

“Highly professional…”
Highly professional and great show. – Betsy S. (Awards Night Party, Arlington Heights, IL)

“Edd did a great job of entertaining…”
Edd did a great job of entertaining the multi-aged group at our block party. He was very funny, flexible and easy to work with. We had many comments from adults and children about how much they enjoyed the show. – Jeanne C (Community Event, Naperville IL)


“He personalized the elements of his magic…”
We were planning an open house event to celebrate our 3 years of being in business with our clients and local business people. We knew that we wanted some type of live entertainment at our event, but music seemed potentially too distracting, and we wanted something that could go on throughout the event. Having recently met Edd Fairman through a local business networking group, I spoke to him about creating a show that would work with our concept. For us, it was very important that the entertainment be family friendly and positive, so as to be consistent with our health and wellness practice. I was happy to learn that Edd specializes in this type of performance, and we created a plan for him to mingle and entertain small groups of people at our event.

In the lead-up to the event we were in communication, as he asked us about possible themes, phrases, and the like that he could work into his performance to personalized the event. We were delighted at the time and thought that went into his ideas, and we gave some feedback to help focus things further. The day of the open house he showed up on time, even slightly early helping us feel confident that things would go smoothly.

His method for engaging our guests was friendly and non-intrusive. The magic seemed to delight everyone, both young and old. And the way that he personalized the elements of his magic, using words, phrases, our business tagline, and even our logo helped us to further feel that this was money well spent. Edd’s work really contributed to everyone’s memory of this special day, and we are so thankful for that!

If you are looking for unique event entertainment with personality but that also is adaptable to your specific needs, you must hire Edd Fairman of Wizard of Sorts. Great experience, great value. Thanks for the memories, Edd! – Dr. Katie Ray – New Day Network Wellness Center
