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.
"A NUANCED PARLOR
SHOW WITH INTIMATE
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.
"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!"

"I really appreciate the time and the preparation you put into customizing your performance for our team. You made a very strong, lasting impression on our entire sales team and your performance and discussion have been the hot topic conversation! Thank you again.
"Gary MADE our wedding. During the cocktail hour he performed and he set the tone of the room perfectly. Many people were meeting for the first time and his amazing talent and humor was the perfect ice breaker. He was so charming we were all sad to see him leave! I wish he was my new best friend!"
