Gary Ferrar is an acclaimed mentalist and magician who's as comfortable headlining for multi-billion dollar companies (Burberry, Morgan Stanley, Ralph Lauren) as he is performing for a casual rooftop event. A member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians, Gary has performed on Fox News Channel and America's Got Talent, and serves as a magic consultant for national television commercials and theater productions. In addition to performing, Gary also provides private lessons on magic theory to celebrities and teaches on About.com. He has a degree in Performing Arts from Hofstra University and his love for theater and improvisation is highlighted in each performance. Gary loves hiking the midwest, skiing in Vermont, landscape photography, and raising his incredible son, Wesley, who often dominates his Instagram feed (below).
Expect exactly what you're looking for! With over 2,000 shows under his belt, Gary has probably done exactly the kind of event you're envisioning and will adapt his routine to fit the style of your audience. Whether it's a room full of skeptics, intellectuals, or goofballs, Gary will deliver with enthusiasm. He wakes up every morning craving to go to work and it shows in every performance. Get a deeper look through his interview with Catapult Magazine, or his YouTube vlog below.
Since you've made it this deep into the site, here's a vintage photo from my very first PAID appearance, juggling for a friend's birthday party. Lucky for you, my sense of fashion has improved as much as my magic.
I promise I won't show up to your event wearing these shorts.
