How does strolling magic work? My performance style is very interactive and casual, with an emphasis on comedy. My goal is to make sure that your guests are not only blown away by my magic, but also have a great time in the process. By doing close-up magic for small groups of people, I can specifically target guests who may not be as engaged in other aspects of your event. Strolling magic can be a great
ice-breaker if your guests don't all know each other. I have the experience to tactfully work a room with a strolling repertoire including such everyday objects as money, silverware, jewelry, playing cards, ice cubes, and mentalism. If possible, I love to finish each set with a trick or two for the whole room.
How do stage/parlor shows work? If you want costumed show girls, large mirrored boxes, and red sequined vests, I'm not your guy. I'd much rather perform an illusion with a paper bag and a spectator's sport coat. No matter the size of the crowd, my signature show feels intimate and improvised. I love the unexpected moments that arise as I bring your guests up to help out with my unique effects. I'll connect with your audience and make sure that everyone feels like they just witnessed the impossible. I have experience performing high-energy, engaging stage shows for weddings, corporate
holiday parties, product launches, birthdays, retirements, fundraisers, proposals, comedy clubs, and much more. I can also MC your event.

"Our clients were still talking about Gary's performance late into the night. Especially the newspaper prediction! - " ~Sandra, Avolon Aerospace
at Bouley Test Kitchen
"Gary performed a parlor show for 25 adults at our annual holiday party and
every single guest LOVED him. He has a warm and genuine personality and is naturally funny. His magic is astounding and his personality lights up the room - could you ask for more?! Book him without reservation! -
- " ~Michele, Holiday Party, UES
"That made my month...and I've been having a pretty good month. Everyone you performed for was truly astonished. The cards and the envelope was mind-blowing. I am pretty much convinced that was real magic. -
~Matt, Engagement Party
"We rented out a small restaurant for a 30th birthday celebration and hired Gary to perform for an hour. Within 10 minutes, he had warmed up and excited everyone there, including the restaurant staff. Gary amazed a skeptical crowd with card tricks, mentalism and his natural charm. It's been a year of big birthdays among our friends and Gary was the highlight. -
