In addition, matching magic with messaging, Steve has performed at trade shows for companies involved in business intelligence, network security, bank insurance and more.
Combining exceptional skill with the ability to communicate with his audience…as well as a sly sense of humor, Steve engages, entertains and amazes his audiences. The result is fun for everyone.
A member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and Academy of Magical Arts, Steve is allergic to the phrase, “take a card, any card.” He prefers working with cards, however, saying they’re easier to carry around in your pocket than a bunny. In addition, he notes, you can't shuffle bunnies.
Close-up magic is the purest form of magic, with a history that stretches back thousands of years. You see (or don't see) the magic happening right before you. Years ago, a noted magician said, "people do not mind being fooled by a gentleman." Steve Friedberg is a gentleman who will delight you with magic that stays in your mind long after the event is over.

Steve's shows are mainly meant for grownups, but if there are kids in the audience, he'll play to them. Steve also "works clean;" you won't have to worry about your audience being offended.
Steve is based in the Philadelphia area and has traveled across the country and around the world working with his corporate clients. For other engagements, depending on the nature of the engagement, Steve will travel to New York, Baltimore, Las Vegas, Orlando, or beyond. Ask him...you just may get a "yes."
Not much at all. If it's a trade show, Steve regularly works in one small corner of a 10x10 booth. For close-up, Steve can stroll among a crowd or be at a small table, where his audiences come to him.
Nope. Steve comes fully ready to perform. You just sit back and watch your audiences have fun.
Yes, but Steve is also flexible; he realizes that every situation is different. Let's talk.
Very well, thanks.
