Be Amazed, Amused and Bewildered

Does Carroll perform outside of the Central Ohio area?
Yes, even though Carroll is based in Columbus Ohio, he travels to all parts of the United States as well as Canada, Mexico, and the Bahamas. You may have been looking for a magician near me when searching online but keep in mind Carroll Baker will travel! Shows booked outside of Ohio will require hotel and airfare accommodations.


Is Carroll able to entertain while people are eating?
Technically yes but we don’t recommend it. By the nature of the entertainment, your guests participate in the magic and are often asked to help out. This is sometimes difficult when people are eating. This applies to all packages, strolling and stage shows.


Will this embarrass or offend anyone?
We’re proud to say that absolutely NO ONE is embarrassed in any way. We’ve heard many horror stories of how other entertainers have completely offended guests in the audience with off-color jokes and remarks. Carroll's entertainment is completely PG-13 Rated and never relies on entertaining people by making fun of or laughing at people. “We’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you…”


What kind of room set up do you need for the stage show?
Typically having the stage set against a wall having all of your guests seated in front and as close as possible (this helps provide a more intimate feeling). Guests that are seated directly to either side
of the stage or behind, have TERRIBLE seats and therefore it’s best to avoid that. A space that can comfortably seat all of your guests without having them on the sides or behind the stage is best.

Also, watch out for those huge annoying beams right in the middle of some rooms. Please take into consideration of your guests so they don’t get stuck behind one of them and miss out on the fun.
Optionally, you can request “pipe and drape” for the stage which serves as the backdrop of the performance and gives it a nice feel.


What size audiences can Carroll entertain?
Carroll’s entertainment is best suited for small to medium size crowds. Carroll entertains groups as intimate as 10 people up to 500 guests in a ballroom. If you have a large group (200 or more), the use of projection screens makes the show even more enjoyable for your guests. Talk to your venue or contact a local audio/video company with questions to further explore that option.
