Here’s a video.
Part Magician. Part Comedian. Totally Dysfunctional.
Nathan Tricky Allen is a nationally-touring, Iowa-based Comedian-Magician for adult crowds at corporate events, company parties, nightclubs, casinos, comedy clubs, country clubs, and private parties. His work as a Magician / Comedian takes him throughout Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, throughout the entire Midwest, and across America. He’s also really good at writing from the “third person” point of view.
Yes, I am a magician, but you will see NO tuxedo and NO sparkly boxes in this show.
Instead, I combine…
- 🔥 sleight-of-hand MAGIC,
- 🔥 an irreverent smart-ass attitude,
- 🔥 DANGEROUS tricks and STUPID stunts,
- 🔥 a TWISTED sense of humor,
- 🔥 IMMATURE pranks and hijinks, and
- 🔥 a TON of HILARIOUS audience participation
…into one of the very few magic shows on the face of the planet that is both geared for adults AND funny.
My show is 😆Funny, 🤩Amazing, kinda 😈Naughty, and VERY “audience-centric” – if that’s a word. Don’t take my word for it, though. Take a look at some reviews:
“This guy is one talented, FUNNY guy… Your face will hurt from laughing so hard!”
“We have never had as many compliments on our party as we did this year, thanks to you! Thanks for making our party a success!”
“Funny, fast moving, unique, and very entertaining!”
“A laugh-filled night with a wild and edgy magician!”
“Very funny, fast-paced, and leaves you wondering ‘How the hell did he do that!?’”
“Sarcastic and funny… perfect for a company party!”
“Nathan got shy people out of their shells, and had everyone – from younger staff to older directors – laughing hysterically!”
“We’ve never had as many people gather for the entertainment at our convention!”
“The best event EVER… Very high quality entertainment!”
“A LOT more laughs than a typical magic show!”
“The show was so great, people are still talking about it seven months later!”
“You did an awesome job… The show was very funny and we loved the audience participation!”
“Insanely hilarious… This guy had our group CRYING from laughter!”
“Outstanding!… They had tears rolling down their faces!”
“Your show was enjoyed by absolutely EVERYONE! (And that is VERY hard to do!)”
“Our customers are still talking about the show! This was one of the best nights we’ve ever had!”
“Action-packed! Funny and unpredictable!”
I started working as a magician when I was just 12 years old (my show was quite a bit different back then, lol). Now, at the age of 34, I have one HELL of a crazy list of performances under my belt, for folks from ALL WALKS OF LIFE - from biker bars to private parties for heads of state, and from comedy clubs to Fortune 500 corporate events.
A few of my credits include...
Oh, and one time the International Brotherhood of Magicians gave me a trophy for being a decent magician or something, but I think entertainment is subjective and the awards are pointless, so I dropped it into the donation bin of a secondhand store.
My proudest accomplishment, though? Being voted Class Clown in school. Because priorities.
So... as you've probably figured out by now, I'm...
Not Your Typical Magician
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.
Any Questions So Far?
If so, I'll bet you'll find the answers right here; these are the 15 questions I receive most often.Hey, boy - You play country music, or western music?
Except I'm different from most magicians, because I'm also part comedian... It's LIKE a magic show, only funnier...
It's like... if Houdini's skills had a bastard love-child with Ron White's attitude.
Ya know what? Country. I play country.
But do you need it to look like an accident?
Because that'll cost extra.
Well, that's pretty much it. That's who I am and what I do.
I don't think there's much more I can tell you without getting uncomfortably personal (I save THAT for the live shows, haha).
Like What You See?
Then I think we'll probably get along.
