Hi. I’m Nathan, a smart-ass who does magic shows.
I combine sleight-of-hand magic, stand-up comedy, dangerous tricks, stupid stunts, immature pranks, and hilarious (and unpredictable) audience interaction into one of the very few magic shows on the face of the planet that is both geared for adults AND funny.
Whether I’m at a comedy club, a biker bar, or a corporate event, I’m all about making adult parties and events FUN.
As you can see in the video…

If you’re hesitating on booking Nathan – DON’T HESITATE; Get him for your event! He’s definitely a crowd-pleaser that your audience will enjoy… Only problem is your face will hurt from laughing so hard!”

Professional, Vegas-Quality Entertainment... Right Here In The Midwest!
Although I travel and entertain throughout America, I'm based out of Iowa, and most of my gigs are right here in the Midwest.
This means if you're looking to book professional entertainment for an event in the Midwest, you will not have to spend an arm and a leg flying someone in - I'm already here!
And if you want to attend one of my public shows here in the Midwest, this means ticket prices are gonna be reasonable, too!
Thousands Of Performances
Even though my show was QUITE a bit different back then, I actually did my first paid magic show when I was just 12 years old. Now, at the age of 34, I have a long list of performances under my belt. A few of my past appearances include...
Edgy, Funny, And For Adults... Without Being Gross Or Offensive
Unlike most magicians (who primarily just do kid shows), I perform only for adult crowds.
The show is naughty and funny (it's often described as "a comedian doing a magic show"), but is NOT over-the-top offensive or obscene.
I do NOT rant about religion, politics, race, or gender, I do NOT tell gross stories, and I do NOT get naked onstage or anything, lol... BUT... there is humor, language, references, innuendo, and dangerous-looking tricks which are not appropriate for kiddos (this is why I perform at places like company parties and nightclubs... NOT churches and schools).
(If my live show were a movie, it would probably be rated either "PG-13" or "R," depending on the particular audience I'm entertaining on any given night.)
Any Questions So Far?Is 'Tricky' *really* your middle name?
The unfortunate truth is, when most people hear "magician," they think "lame," "boring," and "cheesy." I get it.
This is because many magicians...
- 🙄 ...are so focused on doing their TRICKS that they forget to entertain the audience...
- 🙄 ...take themselves SO SERIOUSLY that they're not very fun to watch... or...
- 🙄 ...act SO CORNY that only little KIDS find them amusing.
Whatever. To each his own. But I Do Things a Little Differently:
- 👍 My focus is on having fun with the audience, not on the tricks,
- 🤪 I do not take myself seriously (probably to a fault), and...
- 🍺 the show is not for kids.
I just wanted to be clear: if you come to my show hoping to see Silly Willy The Birthday Magician, you're gonna have a bad time, lol.
My show is naughty, funny, and geared for adults. It contains humor, innuendo, language, references, and some dangerous-looking tricks which are not appropriate for the kiddos. In fact, many of the events and venues I work at have 18+ or 21+ age restrictions. I'm certainly no "Silly Willy The Birthday Clown."
But I'm also not some "Filthy McNasty The X-Rated Comedian" either... My show is NOT over-the-top raunchy or obscene; There is NO nudity, NO explicit or disgusting stories, and NO hate-filled rants about religion, race, politics, gender, or sexual orientation.
Exactly how "edgy" any particular show is depends upon the event and the audience on any given night (I'm usually a bit tamer at a corporate event than at a comedy club, for example), but, in general, my show is NOT for kids for these three reasons:
- I do tricks & stunts you would not want a child to try at home (razor blades, broken glass, etc.)...
- Children wouldn’t understand much of the humor and references in my show, and because so much of what I do is comedy-based, this means the show simply wouldn't be very entertaining to a kid.
- Many adults don’t feel comfortable laughing at adult humor, references, and innuendo while in the presence of a child... Even though these jokes go "over the heads" of children anyway, many adults in the audience still tense up when there are children present... and when people are uncomfortable and afraid to laugh, everyone's enjoyment of the show suffers.
So... to sum it all up: No, don't bring the kiddos. Book a sitter and come out for a fun night. Nobody will be traumatized, and you'll have a great time. See ya soon!
But do you need it to look like an accident?
Because that'll cost extra.
