Magic for the entire family


Is this the children's magic show that adults love, or the adult magic show that children love?

Your guests won't worry about the answer. They'll be too busy howling with laughter and and picking their jaws off the floor. 

And you'll be too busy getting credit for throwing the best party of the year.

What makes my shows different?

Every piece of magic is simple enough for young children to follow, but engaging and incredible enough to amaze the adults.

The magic is original, which means it's not stuff anyone has seen before (unless they've been to one of my shows!). 

And it's funny from start to finish. Like, really funny. My shows are so funny, the audience might not stop laughing long enough to catch its breath. Which makes sense—I'm a national award-winning comedy writer.


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

As the author of Excellence In Family Magic, an acclaimed book for magicians, I've become a worldwide leader in my field and am regularly a featured speaker at magicians' conferences. Magic I've created has been licensed to and performed by magicians around the globe.

Your audience is unique.

Junior high students need a different show than pre-schoolers, and a 1000-seat theater requires a different set of props than a living room. Don't settle for a performer with a one-size-fits-all approach.

Your show is AUTOMATICALLY customized.

As part of the booking process, you'll tell me all about your event. You'll get the perfect show to amaze your guests.

adults have a great time, too. 

I specialize in Family Magic, a discipline that entertains all ages. I even wrote the definitive book on the subject, Excellence in Family Magic.

birthday? throw the best party ever.

Planning a birthday? I make your child's special day legendary. Your child will perform magic and (at some events) even float in midair. Think of the smiles as your child revels in applause as the star of their own party.

Special requests? just ask.

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 shows, magical school assemblies, and magic for adult groups.


For Ages 3-5

You need a show that's silly and interactive to keep the children engaged. They'll laugh so hard they won't be able to breathe, and everyone will participate in making the magic happen. Your children will talk about this routine, featuring a mischievous rabbit named Tricky, for weeks after my show.

"Tricky the Rabbit" (7:03)

For Ages 6-9

You need a show with cleverly scripted magic that keeps the children on their toes and lets them interact in ways that make them feel empowered. Your children will go berserk during this routine when they think they've figured out my secret, before I pull the rug out from under them.

"Not-A-Snake" (4:36)


For Ages 10 and Up

You need a show with magic the children have no chance of figuring out, without leaving them feeling patronized. My show hits older children with a barrage of dry humor that leaves them laughing and surprised they're having so much fun. When it's over, they'll be begging for more. Your children will lose sleep over this routine in which a randomly colored object impossibly appears.

"The Impossible Bicycle" (6:04)

For Mixed-Age Audiences

Kindergarteners and grown-ups in the same crowd? Toddlers and high schoolers? No problem. I literally wrote the book on performing magic for mixed-age audiences. You need magic simple enough for the little ones to understand but tricky enough to fool the adults, and comedy that's laugh-out-loud funny for everyone. Your group will love this routine about a pilfered family heirloom.

"Steal This Umbrella" (4:54)

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."
