Everyone laughs louder when Happy Dan the Magic Man is in the house! Happy Dan has traveled the world entertaining families just like yours for more than 30 years. 

He is more than an entertainer. He's that slightly silly, can't-wait-to-see-him loving uncle that every child loves.  

Children are quickly drawn into his tale of magical fantasy as they perform various feats of magic and more. The laughter never stops as Happy Dan struggles with his misbehaving props and the children fly to his rescue.

Happy Dan weaves Mister Rogers style lessons on confidence, safety, reading, and more into magic bits throughout the show. Children walk away feeling better about themselves and their vibrant imaginations.

He is fully at ease with preschool and middle school aged children as he is with golden age adults.
