Magician Mark H. Wurst...
"Here's What Applause Looks Like On
"Mark Wurst has worked with us for almost three years now. His
performances far exceed anyone we have had in the past. Mark is
professional, dependable, and creative. He also goes out of his way to
make sure that our clients are happy and our events are successful. Mark
is truly talented and it is such a delight to see how he engages the children
with magic, laughter, just great entertainment. I highly recommend hiring
Mark Wurst as a magician for any event. I assure you, you will not be
- Jennifer Yelverton, Event Manager, Princeton Partners, Inc.
"I've known Mark for approximately two years and have had great pleasure in
working with him on many of our Grand Opening and Sustaining events. He
has provided hours of great family fun including upbeat music, balloon animals
and mesmerizing magic tricks. He encourages audience participation, and
the wonderment and joy on some of the children's faces is truly priceless.
Mark's professionalism, character and charm make him a big hit with both
children and adults alike and his performances are riveting, fun and full of
lots of energy. He has an uncanny ability to interact with the audience on
- Regina P. Karkosak, Marketing Relationship Manager, PNC Bank
"If you're looking for a program to entertain both children and adults as
well, Mark Wurst is right up there with some of the best. The audience
just loved him. The children enjoyed being included in his act and were
intrigued with his magic; the adults with his humor. A great time was had
by all and we look forward to having him again at the library."
- Rosalie Brereton, Hoboken Public Library, Hoboken, NJ
"Mark is a warm and accomplished performer who clearly enjoys his craft.
After forging an almost immediate rapport with the audience, Mark broke out a
varied arsenal of illusions and sleight of hand tricks that really entertained
and kept the children's (and their parents') interest from start to finish.
Calls of "Just 1 more trick!" indicated just how well the magic of Mark Wurst
was received at our library! Without a doubt, Mark's show was the
highlight of our Halloween party and I look forward to having him return to
kick-off our Summer Reading Program.
- Jamey Feuer, Children's Librarian, Edgewater Public Library, Edgewater, NJ
"Thank you so much for the wonderful show! It was the perfect way to
celebrate the "Week of the Young Child." Sometimes it is hard to hold the
attention of a four year old for very long, but your show was perfect. The
"WOW" effect was there and the children were engaged for the full half hour.
They loved being a part of the act and were amazed at the tricks."
- Kathleen Newsome, Director, Chestnut Hill Nursery School, Tom's River, NJ
"I just wanted to write you a note to thank you so much for coming out to our
school. All of the children really enjoyed your show!!! It was
entertaining for everyone, from the 2 and 3 year olds to the kindergarteners and
even the teachers. They seemed to enjoy the slapstick comedy that you put
into your magic routines. It was great to see them all laughing and having
a good time. We are looking forward to seeing you here again at our summer
- Lauren Kaiser, Director, Mountain Hill School, Atlantic Highland, NJ
"The audience was enthralled by your magic tricks, particularly the card
tricks. Everyone, both children and adults, enjoyed your joke and many of
the parents told me that they had had a wonderful afternoon. I liked the
way you kept reiterating that children need to read in order to succeed in life.
Your show was a great kick-off for the summer reading club."
-Jay Chatterjee, Head of Children's Services, Chatham Library, Chatham,
"We were thrilled to have
Mark Wurst bring his magic program to our library. It was one of the
best magic shows the Englewood Library has ever seen. Mark
interacted with all of our children and their parents. His tricks
were very pleasing to the children and his humor made the grown-ups laugh
out loud. No one wanted the excitement to end. We would
definitely have Mark Wurst back in a heartbeat."
- Amy Aynedjian, Senior Children's Library, Englewood Public Library,
"On behalf of the Borderdentown Township Senior Citizens Group, we would like
to thank you for your excellent performance at our Halloween party. The
children enjoyed the show, the treat bags and balloon animals. The senior
adults are still talking about the fun that they has that evening. I look
forward to retaining your entertainment for other events during the year."
- Angel Sauro, Bordentown Township Senior Center, Bordentown, NJ
"Mr. Wurst's program was perfect for Red Ribbon Week. His "Just Say No
Magic Show" was just the right length to keep the students' attention and the
message was invaluable. His communication style was well suited to the
students and they loved participating in the show with him. He is very
thorough, providing the school with a packet of information that can be used
pre-assembly to prepare the students and also follow up activities to emphasize
the message and help the students remember the important points of the show."
- Karen Robertson, Red Ribbon Week Coordinator, Ocean City
Intermediate School, Ocean City, NJ
"Thank you for coming to Gage's school and making our son's birthday a
wonderful and memorable experience for him, his classmates and his family!
Gage had an AWESOME time, and he really loved being the big part of the show!
We loved how you kept him so involved and that smile on his face was so
priceless. The magic was exciting, the jokes were silly, the school was
rockin' with laughter and all the children, teachers and family had a wonderful
time! I will highly recommend you to all of our family and friends.
You are AWESOME!!"
- Sandy Moellmann, Birthday Mom, Lakewood, NJ
"The show had energy, enthusiasm, action and a lot of laughs. The show
was not only entertaining but it delivered a tremendous message about the
importance of recycling. Your magic show was a superb grand finale for our
2003 Summer Reading Program. With over 300 children, you drew the largest
crowd this summer! The children had a fantastic time watching you perform.
They especially enjoyed their active involvement in the show...and of course,
the balloon animals!"
- Rupinder K. Athwal, Librarian, Costa Mesa Branch Library
"Mark, when you were with us for Summer Reading Program 2001 I thought that
you were great. Now that you have visited us for Summer Reading Program
2003, I KNOW that you are. Not only did the kids love your show, but a
surprising number of parents gave you rave reviews as well. You'll always
be invited to Chino Hills to perform as you are one of our favorites here!
Keep up the good work & listen for your phone; we'll be calling!"
- Marilyn Smith, Children's Specialist, Chino Hills Branch Library
"The magic was great, the jokes were funny (especially the puns for the
adults), and everyone had a wonderful time! I was also particularly
pleased by how many children you allowed to participate. That is always
such a special treat for them, and you invite more than any other performer I've
seen. Even those who don't come up on stage still get to take part from
the audience and that makes every child feel welcome and included. Your
show was an excellent way for our Readers to wind up a great summer!"
- Nancy Carstensen, Children's Librarian, Oceanside Public Library
"The kids loved it and many of the parents and other adults have stopped by
to say thanks. Besides the great show, the kids also loved the balloon
animals. We look forward to having you again next year for another
fabulous show. The way that you interact with the audience and get them
involved is great."
- Kami Collver, Resident Manager, Villa Solana Apartments, Laguna Hills,
"You and your wife helped to make our grand opening summer one to remember.
I especially liked and appreciated that you brought hand-outs for all of the
children. That added an extra special touch to a wonderful performance.
I also really was impressed by your performance tying into our summer reading
program theme; your research on the topic was impressive."
- Joan C. Elison, Children's Services Associate, Hemet Public Library
"This was a very entertaining program. The children & their parents
loved the performance. It was fun filled and the encouraged audience
participation was great. Thanks for yet another exciting performance."
- Tara Smith, Children's Program Coordinator, San Marino Public Library
"Mark Wurst stands out as one of the most entertaining magicians I have seen.
He is able to captivate and enthrall large audiences with his engaging magic
tricks laced with lots of humor. I have also appreciated the fact that he
is always punctual, professional, and organized not only in booking a show, but
also in providing publicity materials and arriving for the actual
- Ginger A. Safstrom, Youth Services Librarian, Temecula Library
"Children and parents certainly enjoyed the magic show you presented at our
library this summer. Your "Rainforests, Recycling and Magic" kept our
audience of 100+ enthralled. I like the fact that you blend magic with
storytelling and the way you promote using the library. I certainly will
recommend your program for schools and public libraries looking for programs."
- Susan Scamara, Children's Librarian, Rialto Branch Library
"Magician Mark Wurst has performed at the Arcadia Public Library several
times in the last year. Each time he performs here, the children and
parents are delighted with his sleight of hand tricks, jokes and overall stage
presence. His humor, showmanship, and professionalism are exemplary.
He inspires awe in his audience and encourages the children to read. I
know I can count on him to show up early and be ready to perform at show time.
He makes my job as a librarian easier."
- Yvonne Ng, Children's Librarian, Arcadia Public Library
"The 190 people that attended enjoyed the show. You handled the kids
well and I was appreciative of that because sometimes audiences can get a bit
unruly. Anyway, thanks again for your promptness, your communication and
the delight that you brought to the Cerritos Library patrons."
- Hedy Harrison, Children's Services Librarian, Cerritos Library
"Thank you for making our daughter Sarah's birthday a wonderful and memorable
experience for her - and her family! You gave Sarah special attention on
her "big day" and I could tell she really felt important. Her friends and
family were very entertained and we liked the way you called each child up to be
in the spotlight so that they all had their 'moment.' You are a great
entertainer and magician!"
- Catherine Heinlein, Birthday Mom, San Dimas, CA
"The children had a wonderful time and you kept the pace lively with jokes
and fun. Your music and sound effects along with the new stage set-up are
most effective. The kids loved you! You helped make our Summer
Reading Program a success!"
- Carol Jensen, Manager, Canyon Lake Library
"Your program, "The Magic Of Books" was enjoyed by all - it was great to see
so many people spellbound. As a result, our magic books have disappeared
from the shelves! You always provide great entertainment, and you
encourage reading too - thank you!"
- Ros Wilkes, Children's Librarian, Rancho Santa Margarita Library
"Thank you for the outstanding performance on July 17th at the Big Bear Lake
Library. Your Rainforests, Recycling and Magic program was both
informative and entertaining. We all enjoyed your magic and comedy."

just like these!"
