Book Scott


Magic for the entire family


Adults are as delighted, amazed and entranced as their children.

All ages laugh until they're gasping for air. Everyone is engaged from start to finish.

What makes my shows different?

Every minute is packed with humor, intrigue and surprise because I use comedy-writing techniques to design my magic. (I'm a national award-winning comedy writer.)

I'm also a talented improviser and have exceptional skill at keeping children behaved, which means I seamlessly tailor my show to fit your audience.

Don't take my word for it.

I'm #1 on Yelp and the go-to magician for Chicago TV shows.

I'm also the author of Excellence In Family Magic, an acclaimed book for magicians, and a featured lecturer at magicians' conferences, where my peers are eager to hear me talk theory and share my expertise. I'm the guy the other magicians turn to when they want to improve their shows.

Don't wait. Get started now.

"Hilarious... even parents will get sucked in."


"He's an Irish devil."

- Pat Tomasulo, WGN

(he's at least half wrong)

"All of the kids and, well, the adults too, were laughing hysterically."


"Laughter and wonderment... fun and inclusive."

- The Wilmette Beacon

"I'm flummoxed! That's amazing."

- Richard Roeper, Fox Chicago

"Scott saved the day and made the party a success."



Every audience is different.

Magic that wins over snarky-hearted junior high kids flies over the heads of pre-schoolers. What works in a 1000-seat theater may not play in a living room. Don't settle for a performer with a one-size-fits-all approach.

Your show is customized.

As part of the booking process, you'll tell me all about your event. That way I come armed with magic that does more than deceive. You and your guests will be charmed, tickled and amazed by a one-of-a-kind show worlds beyond anything you've seen before.

Don't forget the grown-ups. 

Your adult guests will have a great time, too. That's because I specialize in Family Magic, a discipline that entertains all ages - not just the children.


If your event is a birthday party, your child stars in the show, actually performing magic (maybe even floating in midair!) and reveling in the applause and cheers of friends and family. During the show I keep a close eye on the birthday child to make sure he or she is having the best time ever.

Special requests? No problem.

Get in touch. I want to hear what you've got in mind. I bet I can set you up with something perfect. I also offer themed Halloween and winter holiday shows; magical school assemblies; and magic for adult groups.

About Scott Green


Scott Green (hey, that’s me!) is a professional magician based in Chicago.

I performed my first show at age 14. In 2009 I earned my law degree and passed the Bar, but decided instead to become a full-time magician. (My parents have forgiven me.)

Today I'm a leader in my field. I'm the author of a groundbreaking book of theory and practice, Excellence in Family Magic, and a featured speaker at conferences for magicians. 

While in college, I was named one of the 100 best young writers in America for my humor column, which was syndicated to outlets including the Washington Post. 

My wife and I live in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood with our two young children, who love watching Daddy's shows. An avid game show fan, I've been a contestant on both "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" and "The Price Is Right."
