Frequently Asked Questions

Most commonly asked questions are answered below.

I have never booked entertainment before, how does it work?

We have made booking with Ali K. Zam Productions as easy as possible. Once you have considered a few possible dates and times for your birthday party contact Leif David for availability. No deposit is required to hold your date. Once we have agreed to a final date and time, Leif will send you a confirmation sheet by email. We will contact you the day before the show to touch base and make sure that none of the details have changed. Leif David will arrive at the venue 30 minutes before the start time to set up. Due to the fact that Leif David is completely self-contained you don’t need to provide a thing. A power outlet should be within 8 feet of the performance space or an extension cord can be used.

Do you provide any guarantee?

Do the kids get to keep anything from the show?

Yes. There are Official Magicians Wand party favours and Leif David’s “Magic Academy: How to be a Magician” DVD available at an additional cost.

Is there audience participation in the show?

Leif David has created a highly entertaining show that is great for all ages. His show incorporates lots of audience participation during the show, but volunteers are always picked by raising their own hands – no one is ever forced on stage and jokes are never made at the expense of those who come up to help.

Will I need to provide anything for the magic show?

No, Leif David is completely self-contained so you don’t need to provide a thing. The only requirement is enough room to perform and an outlet to plug in the sound system.

How much space is needed?

The great benefit to hiring Leif David for your child’s birthday party is that he only needs an area of about 6feet x 4feet. Thus, his show can be performed in a living room or family room without any problems.

Can we have the show outside?

Yes, it is possible to have your birthday party show outdoors. However, it is better to have the show indoors because there are less distractions especially for younger children.

If you are going to host the party outside, here are a few tips:

  • Make sure there is a working power outlet nearby for the performer
  • A shaded area is best, especially for younger children. Shade can be from the side of a building, a tree, or a pop-up tent.
  • The audience should be seated so that they aren’t looking into the sun for the show
  • Serve water so the kids won’t get dehydrated on a hot day
  • Have a backup plan in case the weather turns bad and you need to relocate

Can I invite parents and siblings to stay and watch the show?

Please do. Invite as many guests as you can – the bigger the group, the better the show. We do not charge per child. Just let Leif David know how many people there will be when you book the show.

Can I take photo’s or record the show?

You may record portions of the show, but not the entire show. Photography of the show is encouraged! It’s a great way to remember that special day.

Does Leif David perform at other events?

Yes, check out his other performance options at www.BCmagician.com.

This was not an easy group to entertain. Sixteen 2 to 8 year olds during the crazy hour from 5 to 6 p.m. is a recipe for disaster, but Leif not only managed to entertain the children, he was a hit with both the adults and the children. Teagan loved her magical birthday and I would recommend this birthday package to anyone.

Great communication with me and ease of booking. Children were interested the whole time and great for the parents too!

Stacey Laing

My 3 1/2 year old grandson, who usually loses focus about 15 minutes into any show and announces “I’m done now”, stayed utterly involved and his bellylaughs could be heard a mile away. Sooooo magic, and sooooo funny, Thanks Leif David!

Antoinette Halberstadt

Your performance at Tess’ party was captivating and enjoyable for the kids as well as the parents!! You have an amazing way of involving the kids so that they can’t take their eyes off you! Our only complaint, time went too fast and we were wanting more!! You truly are a “Magician”!! Thank you for making Tess’ party a magical one!

Corrine Peacock
