On the road again…

The life of an entertainer never stops moving, if your not performing your probably on  your way to a performance.

It is a lonely day at the office as Hagerman has set out for his work with Canobie lake park’s educational days.  Hagerman’s Extreme Science is one of the main attractions at the park again this year.  We are very excited to be working with Canobie again and to make this year special, Hagerman has been working on  some extra Extreme experiments.

The life of a performer is never boring, the life of an office assistant however….well you do the math.



Vaudeville Magic

Vaudeville Magic

Classic Appeal for a Modern World

Hagerman the MagicianVaudeville Magic is the title of Hagerman’s comedy magic show. When it comes to outstanding performances, Vaudeville Magic has all other magic shows beat. Nowhere else will you find a more entertaining combination of great humor and mystifying original magic. This show has a solid foundation of comedy and is performed in a style reminiscent of the days of vaudeville.

I have hosted Hagerman the Entertainer at two of my festivals. He is a total delight to work with and a fascinating entertainer. The children and families were enchanted with his clever, magical skills and lively, witty humor. Hagerman is whimsical, amusing, good-humored and quite captivating. I especially appreciate the vaudeville era he represents in his shows. I look forward to working with him again. -Jane Accurso, Entertainment Director, First Night Festival, Columbia MO

Ninety percent of working stage magicians include at least one of these items listed above in their performances and for many this list comprises half their show: for some, this is their show!  If you are a professional entertainment buyer, you probably recognize some of these worn-out routines. Magicians who perform these catalog bought routines are a dime a dozen. Though some of those magicians may perform these routines well, they are still only rehashing old material. If you want something new and fresh out of magic, Vaudeville Magic is the only answer.

Customized for Your Venue

Hagerman the Magician is never serious about comedy.Hagerman can customize Vaudeville Magic for any stage large or small. It’s his personality that plays big and so he can get away with entertaining thousands without the use of large illusions. But if grand illusions are what you want, Hagerman aims to please and can accommodate; but at twice the cost.

In the Beginning

D.R. KawakHagerman got his start performing and writing comedy for one of his other alter egos, D.R. KawaK. KawaK’s Extreme Science show, along side Hagerman, toured the nation several times. His science shows are claimed by many education professionals as some of the best and funniest science shows in the country!


Starting in 1994, performing 80, (sometimes over 150), shows a month for five years straight, honed Hagerman’s craft fast. Seventeen years of professional performing experience now allows him to perform only 80-150 times a year. The better he gets, the more money he is given, the less he performs. In future years, he predicts he will only perform twenty times a year. Let us see how this pans out!

Lake Compounce, Bristol, CT Season One

I received many unsolicited comments from guests about the quality of your shows and the professional way that you engaged the audience whether on stage or on the street. In fact, last night while we were preparing to close the park for the regular season, one of the last remaining guests tracked me down to let me know how much she and her family enjoyed the magic show last evening.
