About Paul DiLella

 “People don't remember days…. Only moments.

Magic creates those moments.


Paul DiLella started performing magic during his tour of duty with the United States Air Force and has been performing magic for over 46 years. Although he performs all types of magic (Close-Up, Cabaret / Stage, Birthday Parties), he mostly prefers performing for children. Paul has volunteered at Pediatric wards in hospitals and has been a counselor / magician at the American Cancer Society's Camp of the Rising Sun, a camp for children diagnosed with cancer in Connecticut.


Paul has performed in varied venues (fairs, festivals, private parties, picnics, country clubs, amusement parks, trade shows, corporate hospitality suites, store openings, and restaurants). Lots of audience participation make his show a delight for all ages. His magic will make you leave laughing aloud and wondering in amazement. Colorful props used in bright, visual tricks and educational story-lines make his magic especially appealing. Indoor or outdoors, large event or small, MAGIC can add that something special to your next event and ensure its success. 


Close-up magic is another magical specialty that Paul loves to perform. Close-up magic is a type of entertainment that happens on an intimate level. Magic happens when the magician walks from audience to audience, ranging in size from one individual to small groups of one to ten. Most of the magical illusions happen in the hands of the spectator. Close-up magic can be done anywhere, under any condition, and does not interrupt the flow of events. And most importantly, it magically creates memorable moments that audiences will never forget. Whether it's Close-up Magic or Stage / Banquet / Parlor Magic or Children's Magic .... everyone loves MAGIC .


Paul is a member and past President of the International Brotherhood of Magicians Ring # 63 in Greenville, South Carolina and also an Order of Merlin Shield member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
