Lying With Purpose
Blowing Up The Basic Magic Show
This is what you’d want a magic show to be in 2019.
No large metal rings joined together here. No piece of rope cut in half and miraculously healed.
No mawkish story about how the magician’s beloved grandfather taught him his first trick. No, in this show, grandpa’s a kleptomaniac and the sap stays in the maple syrup bottle.
Lying With Purpose In is 90 minutes of satire, highbrow comedy and interactive social experimentation, done through the medium of magic.
Not just magic. Magic you’ve never seen before. Magic that will fry your brain and cost you sleep.
But don’t worry about that yet. Buy your tickets and get excited for a night of fun. We’ll see you soon.
Wait, who’s Scott Green?
You’ve seen him nationally on ESPN and Steve Harvey. He’s a favorite performer at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, the #1 venue in the world of magic.
He’s the Chicago Bulls’ magician, which means you’ve seen him on the scoreboard performing for 7-foot tall athletes. He’s been on TV more than any other magician in Chicago and it’s not even close, with more than a dozen appearances a year.
And he’s a rising star in the world of magic. His book, Excellence in Family Magic, is a magic bestseller and earned rave reviews from the likes of Penn & Teller.
Yeah, Scott Green won’t be joining large metal rings together. Won’t cut a piece of rope in half and heal it. Won’t find your stupid card. (It was the four of spades, though.)
Forget what you’ve seen at other magic shows. This is… different. Scott built Delightful Little Lies from scratch. It’s a night of satire, highbrow comedy and interactive social experimentation, done through the medium of magic. Magic you’ve never seen before.
