A Night Of Comedy, Magic, And Music To Raise Funds For Fair Improvements

WAUKON – Part magician, part comedian, and totally dysfunctional, Nathan Tricky Allen will be bringing his acclaimed “adults only” blend of magic and comedy back to Waukon, for a fundraiser event to help improve the Allamakee County Fair. The event will be held on Saturday, April 11, at the fairgrounds Pavilion building, and the evening will also include music and karaoke with Waukon’s own DJ Steve Hill.

Originally an Allamakee County native, Nathan Tricky Allen now entertains throughout the Midwest and across America at comedy clubs, biker bars, company parties, and even Fortune 500 corporate events. His shows are an eclectic blend of sleight-of-hand magic, stand-up comedy, dangerous tricks, stupid stunts, immature pranks, and hilarious (and unpredictable) audience interaction.

With over 20 years of professional experience since he first began doing shows in his hometown of Postville for neighborhood birthday parties, Allen is now known for being one of only a few “adults only” magicians in the entire country, with a show that is naughty, edgy, and tons of fun (without being gross or offensive). His personality-driven performances have been described as “One of the funniest magic shows ever!” (Happenings Magazine; Kenosha, WI), “Star entertainment!” (Inside Magic; Los Angeles, CA), and “A laugh-filled night with a wild and edgy magician!” (Seattle Performs; Seattle, WA).

The International Brotherhood of Magicians presented Nathan with the Justo Hijo Magic Award, based on skill, originality, and entertainment value. He has performed at private parties for heads of state, has appeared on NBC, ABC, The CW, PBS, and TV3 (Europe), and he has been invited to entertain at special events across America for 3M, Budweiser, Ford, Honda, Chevrolet, Wal-Mart, and Facebook, to name just a few.

And yet, in a typical example of his priorities, he insists that he is most proud of being voted Class Clown in his 2002 Postville High School yearbook.

The April 11 event at the fairgrounds will begin with socializing, beverages, and music at 7pm, with Nathan taking the stage at 8:00, followed by an after-party with karaoke and music, courtesy of DJ Steve.

Tickets for the event are only $15 at the door, or they can be purchased for only $10 in advance at http://www.AllamakeeCountyFair.org or at the following local banks: Waukon State Bank (Waukon), FreedomBank (Waukon, Postville), Kerndt Brothers Savings Bank (Waukon, Lansing, Decorah), New Albin Savings Bank (New Albin), Peoples State Bank (Harpers Ferry), and Viking State Bank & Trust (Decorah). Proceeds will be used for Allamakee County Fair improvements.
