"Most people come out here and just hit us with one emotion. They're funny, or they're amazing, and you started out with one of the funniest, most interesting images we've seen, and then at the end you had a CHANGE that was so beautiful that we really cared about this trick deeply." - Penn Jillette

This will translate into making you and everything you do better. By focusing not only on tricks or methods, but also on scripting, visuals, and pacing, Brent is able to offer something you simply can’t get when you buy off-the-shelf magic. Put simply, Brent cares about your audience.

The Magic Firm is a full-service magic consulting company. We offer consulting on all aspects of magic creation, development, and performance.
The Magic Firm was created in 2014 when Brent Braun and Daniel Martin began to discuss why most off-the-shelf magic shows aren't great. Brent’s experience in theater, the creation of magic, and the business of magic, combined with Daniel’s “nothing is impossible” attitude, allowed them to create a show that would go on to dominate Daniel’s marketplace and lead to several awards. They immediately realized that there must be a way to use what they had learned to make magicians better. They began to work together to combine and hone their skills in a way that they knew would be useful to other professional performers. The Magic Firm was born, and since then Brent and Daniel have been making better magic.
Looking for original and unique magic that makes you stand out from other performers? We offer full trick development. Either by starting with a trick you are already performing and developing it into an original piece or by making anything you can imagine possible. Our years of creating magic have given us many tools that allow us to create magic that is not only unexplainable but also unbelievable.
A good script breathes life into a magic effect. While it can be the most difficult and most often overlooked part of an act, you don’t have to go it alone! We can work in person or even from a video of your routine, set, or entire show. Give us your sticking point and we’ll get you unstuck. We’ll bring your show to new heights with a professional-level script that will show you where you want to take your audience and how to get them there.
Your audience needs to see “you” in the magic you perform. The Magic Firm will work closely with you to infuse your performance with personality – your personality. The effects you perform will have that unique stamp that will set you apart from any other magician. Every performer has a signature effect. What’s yours? Let us help you find it!
What’s show business without business? The Magic Firm can help you get a grip on some of the more…not-so-fun aspects of the biz. We can help you create a comprehensive business plan that, when followed, will make you money. We will help you take your passion and turn it into a business that you’re going to love to run!

“We had many great lectures at TAOM last year, but yours got the most reaction. It was fabulous.”
“One of the most incredible things I've ever seen as a magician is watching Brent Braun perform with a deck of cards. He has this very potent balance between moments of magic that happen visually and moments of magic that only happen in your imagination. I love the way he balances worker effects that you can do anywhere with these one off miracles that you save for just the right time and just the right place when you really just want to light someone’s hair on fire.”
-Nate Staniforth, Host of Breaking Magic television show
“Mr. Braun is a very, very clever man”
“‘Real magic’ should have no unnecessary or unnatural moves or distractions, that’s why this is so powerful. The innocence and simplicity in performance removes spectator suspicion and replaces it with awe.”
-Richard Jones, Winner of Britain's Got Talent
"I love it. Very clever ideas. As a fan of the two card transposition, I love Brent’s version.”
“When old plots blow you away, when sleights go right past you, when you look at the explanations and think how simple the methods are, then you know you're looking at
something special. Braun's material is special”
-Visions, The Online Journal of the Art of Magic
“The cleanest and most visually striking two-card transposition I have ever seen”
“You knew how to make it personal, as if you were speaking one on one with me. Thought provoking, and funny, with a touch of insane creativity! Stellar in every way!”
“Brent simultaneously entertained, fooled, and educated a room of magicians with powerful, real-world material by blending practical methods with sound theory, presentation, and showmanship. If someone has a chance to see you lecture and misses it, then they’ve missed a true opportunity to grow as a magician.”
“Brent creates hard-hitting magic that is within the average performers grasp, while explaining the thinking behind his choices of construction and keeping everyone laughing the entire time.”
