Steve Friedberg: Intelligent Magic

"Intelligent Magic" lives here. From magic "at the table" at the Magic Castle to trade shows, corporate events, weddings and strolling magic, Intelligent Magic entertains, amazes and delights.

Who is Steve Friedberg?
Steve Friedberg is an internationally-recognized sleight-of-hand artist, who has amazed audiences worldwide.

Steve is one of a select group of close-up magicians. He's:

  • headlined at Hollywood’s world-famous Magic Castle;
  • been admitted into membership at London's Magic Circle; and
  • received his Doctor's of Magic degree from the Fechter’s Finger Flicking Frolic convention, an annual, invitation-only gathering of 250 of the world’s finest close-up magicians.

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.

Delivering the "moments of wonder"
Magic that happens right in front of you; no smoke, no mirrors

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.

"Unforgettable!" "Amazing!" "Fantastic!"

Frequently asked questions
What would you like to know?

Still have questions? We've got answers. Email us or give us a call.

  • Is your show kid-friendly?

    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.

  • How far do you travel?

    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."

  • How much space do you need?

    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.

  • Do you require electricity or audio?

    Nope. Steve comes fully ready to perform. You just sit back and watch your audiences have fun.

  • Do you require deposits?

    Yes, but Steve is also flexible; he realizes that every situation is different. Let's talk.

  • How did you DO that?

    Very well, thanks.
