Since its inception in 1979, Mr. Magic Family Entertainment has evolved from a single magician to dozens of talented wizards. Today, father-son team and co-owners Wayne and Ryan Simmons have expanded their business to keep up with modern technology and the latest social trends offering green screen photography, photo booth photography and airbrush artistry face painting along with several other modern games and activities.

Ryan Simmons


With entertainment in his blood, Ryan’s entrepreneurial career started when he was 10, as Ry the Balloon Guy: where he sold balloons alongside his father, Mr. Magic. Naturally outgoing, Ryan picked up work as a child-actor in New York. Thereafter, Ryan shifted focus behind the camera, studying Television, Film and Media Arts at DeSales and Temple Universities. After a stint with the Emmy Award-winning Philadelphia Eagles radio team, Ryan rejoined his father in the family business, utilizing his combined background in logistical media and entertainment. Ryan officially assumed full-time operations in 2012 and currently focuses on expanding the family business with his father “Mr. Magic” Wayne Simmons.


Wayne Simmons


Mr. Magic knows magic! Wayne Simmons began entertaining and delighting at age eight, performing magic shows for fellow-campers in exchange for a week’s stay at summer camp. After graduating Archbishop Ryan High School in 1972, Wayne served with the United States Air Force in Germany, going on to earn a Computer Science degree from LaSalle University. Wayne continued performing traditional stage magic and entertaining on weekends, alongside a traditional 25-year career spanning IBM and Boeing. Driven by growing passion for entertainment, Wayne began full-time focus on Mr. Magic Family Entertainment in 2010 and expanding the family business with his son Ryan Simmons and performing his famous magic act at events.
