Gary Ferrar is the kind of magician who's as comfortable headlining for multi-billion dollar companies (Burberry, Morgan Stanley, Ralph Lauren) as he is performing for casual backyard barbecues. While presenting his first trick for kindergarten show-and-tell, Gary fell in love with the theatricality of magic (and he still performs that trick!). Gary belongs to the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and is a resident magician for the Brooklyn Public Library, About.com, and several New York pediatric units. He is the director of summer magic programs at SUNY Old Westbury, SUNY Purchase, and the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. In his little free time, Gary loves hiking the midwest, skiing in Vermont, landscape photography, and raising his incredible son, Wesley, who often dominates his Instagram feed (below).
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Expect nothing less than complete satisfaction! Gary's years of experience make him one of the most captivating performers you can hire. He wakes up every morning craving to go to work, which makes him (officially) the luckiest man in the world. He absolutely loves what he does and it shows in every performance. Get a deeper look into Gary's process through his interview with Catapult Magazine, or his YouTube vlog below!
Since you've made it this far, here's a rare photo from my very first PAID appearance, juggling for a friend's birthday party. Luckily my sense of fashion has improved as much as my magic has. I promise I won't wear these shorts to your event (unless you want me to...)
