A Real Magic Story

Close-Up Magic


For almost twenty five years I’ve been performing magic professionally. As Chicago’s premier magician, I’ve performed for CEO’s, celebrities,  and local sports stars.  One of the most special shows was recently for my daughter and her friends.  A few weeks ago my high school daughter went to “turn about dance.” The parents of one of my daughters friends hosted the after hours party and I elected to help chaperon the event.  The kids arrived and I helped usher them into the basement. As the kids pass me, one of the boys asked, if I was really a magician. I saw my daughter roller her eyes and I just nodded. “Cool”, is all he said. About a half hour into the party my daughter came up stairs.  “Everything OK,” I asked. To my surprise she asked if I would come down stair and perform some magic. “Are you sure”, I asked? She half smiled and said, “Yes”. I had just come from a show and had my close-up case in the car. For about a half an hour I performed some of my favorite card, money, and rope tricks adding just enough humor not to embarrass my daughter. When I finished I headed up the stairs to join the rest of the adults. As I was closing the basement door, my daughter ran up the basement stairs. She said, “Thanks dad….I love you”.  I smiled. That was real magic.

This Friday I’m performing at the Lemont Park District 8:00.

This Saturday I’m performing at Chicago’s Navy Pier. 2, 3, 4, and 5 in the Family Pavilon.
