Part magician, part comedian, and totally dysfunctional, Nathan Tricky Allen performs a highly-caffeinated blend of magic and comedy!

Yes, Nathan Tricky Allen is a magician, but don’t be fooled – you will see NO tuxedo and NO sparkly boxes in this show. Instead, Nathan combines his twisted sense of humor, sleight-of-hand magic skills, and 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.

The best trick up Nathan’s sleeve is his ability to connect with a crowd, and it’s a trick he can pull off whether he is at a corporate event or a biker bar.

With a knack for being naughty and tons of fun, Nathan’s personality-driven performances have been described as…

SINCE-1996_iowa-magician-iowa-comedianMore than just something out of thin air, Nathan’s slow-but-steady rise in the entertainment industry is the result of a 20+ year, love-hate obsession with his work. He started learning magic when he was only 8 years old and did his first paid performance when he was just 12.

Now, at the age of 33, Nathan has a long list of performances under his belt, for companies including…

The International Brotherhood of Magicians presented Nathan with the Justo Hijo Magic Award, based on skill, originality, and entertainment value. He is the only magician ever featured in “The Grassroots Comedy Tour” and “The Dirty Jokes & Magic Tricks Show”. His entertainment services won him a full-ride business scholarship to attend college. Of the dozens of magicians in Iowa, Nathan was the only one selected to perform onstage at Iowa Governor Culver‘s Inaugural Gala.

He has also appeared on television a few times, but did it without being chased by police, which is a “first” among his family.

And yet, in a typical example of his priorities, he insists that he is most proud of being elected Class Clown.

Nathan is based out of northeast Iowa, where he lives with his wife, Sara, and three-year-old daughter, Lillian Rose. He loves coffee, hates snow, and enjoys arguing with the television… when it’s turned off.

And, yes, “Tricky” really is his middle name.
