Auckland Magician Mick Peck : A Quick Introduction
Thanks for visiting my family entertainment and birthday party magic show website! I'm a full-time professional magician and entertainer based in Auckland, New Zealand.

You may have seen me on the cover of The New Zealand Herald Canvas magazine for the feature "Hey Presto! - Why There's Still Room For Old-Fashioned Magic", or profiled in The Sunday Star Times Sunday magazine for the feature "Revealing The Tricks of the Magician's Trade". I was also featured on the New Zealand Herald Online as part of their 'What I Do?' feature on unique occupations.
I have twice served as Convention Chairman for the New Zealand International Magicians' Convention and in 2014 was presented with a special award from Magic New Zealand which reads, "Presented to Mick Peck in recognition of his long term service and outstanding contribution to the magic fraternity of this country".
I am a proud recipient of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce Awesome Service Award, presented for providing inspirational customer service.

"Hi Mick, my husband and I would like to thank you for making our boys 5th birthday so special on Saturday afternoon. I was a little bit nervous about booking you as I found you on the Internet and had no personal recommendations. On the day you turned up exactly when you said you would and the show was wonderful. The children were totally entranced during the whole performance, and so were the adults, the mix of humour kept everyone laughing. Our son is a very logical thinker he likes to know exactly how things work and all the steps involved, it was wonderful to see the look of joy, amazement, awe and total disbelief when he was involved in the magic tricks with you. He is still talking about the tricks, especially the rabbit who was invisible and then wasn't. I will be recommending you to anybody who is looking for a magician. Once again thank you so much." - Nicolle Zimmerman, Army Bay

"Hi Mick, huge thanks for coming and entertaining at our daughter’s 7th birthday party today. Everyone loved your show - young and old alike and Hanna herself declared this was the best birthday yet! You took complete control of the audience with great humour and kept the pace moving along to keep little minds and their attention from straying.

Thank you for making the day such a resounding success!" - Anne-Lise Blackburn, Birkenhead

"I would like to recommend Mick Peck for library events. We recently had Mick as our guest entertainer at an event held in the Massey Leisure Centre. There was a large crowd of over 200 people and Mick had them enthralled for the length of his show. He had plenty of variety in his show, and even the parents were attentive. Just last weekend we had another event, for which Mick was our main entertainer. Once again the show was interactive and pitched at the right level for our slightly younger audience. Mick combines magic, animals, illusion and fun with lots of audience participation. We would definitely have him to other library events." - Christine Calis, Senior Librarian for Children and Youth, Massey Library
