Even if you think you know how something is completed, you cannot be sure!
It is possible to learn to be a magician; in fact, businesses such as Magical Duda Entertainment will even offer courses introducing you to the basic magical concepts. It is these concepts which are used by all magicians, regardless of which illusion is being performed.

If you are looking for a magician to cover a small, intimate venue such as a birthday party then you will need to keep your search local to you. The further you go from your home the more expensive it will become. This is simply because there will be travelling and possibly even accommodation costs. For most small parties a local, well established magician should be able to perform a good job. If you are looking to fill a concert hall you may wish to consider higher profile magicians!
It is important to check with others in the area regarding their experiences with a specific magician or group of magicians. The better their reputation the more you will wish to hire them.

This can lend a certain credibility to any firm. Above all, the magicians you pick should enjoy creating illusions. Magic should is supposed to be fun and entertaining; this should be obvious in the way they craft their illusions.
