Different audiences have different needs. Don't settle for a performer with a one-size-fits-all approach. As part of the booking process, you’ll tell Scott all about your event and he’ll fit your show to your needs.


Scott makes the big day special. Your child will perform magic and (at some events) even star in a gravity-defying illusion. Add cake and you’ve got the perfect birthday party.


Scott will set you up with something perfect. He also offers themed shows, magical school assemblies, and magic for adult groups.

About Scott

Chicago-based magician Scott Green is “gloriously goofy” (Genii Magazine). Known nationally as an innovative performer and thinker—the official magazine of the Society of American Magicians raves he's "smart, funny, practiced, and well-rehearsed in his craft"—Scott performs hundreds of shows annually.

Because of Scott’s cross-generational appeal, he appears regularly on Chicago television and is a featured lecturer at magicians’ conventions. His book, Excellence in Family Magic, is in the magic libraries of some of the biggest names in magic. Magicians around the world (even including some in Chicago) have bought performance rights for Scott’s original routines.

In 2009 Scott earned a law degree from the University of Illinois and passed the Bar, but never practiced. That same year he was named one of the 100 best young writers in America for a weekly humor column that was syndicated to outlets including the Washington Post. 

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