Hilarious “Adults Only” Magic Show Coming To Winfield’s Twin Lakes Country Club

WINFIELD, IA – Part magician, part comedian, and totally dysfunctional, Nathan Tricky Allen will be bringing his acclaimed “adults only” blend of magic and comedy to the Twin Lakes Country Club on Saturday, October 23rd.

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 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 in the entire country that is both geared for adults AND funny.

With over 20 years of professional on-stage experience, 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 comedy club, a biker bar, or a Fortune 500 corporate event – each of which regularly give him standing ovations.

Known for being naughty and tons of fun, without being gross or offensive, Nathan’s 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).

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 elected Class Clown.

The October 23rd performance will begin at 8:00 PM (with doors opening for seating and beverages at 7:00). Tickets are only $10, and the appearance will be Nathan’s full hour-long headlining show – the same performance that has been seen at comedy clubs and corporate events nationwide. Getting advance tickets is highly encouraged, and they can be procured from the Twin Lakes Country Club (319-257-6253) or from any club board member.

The Bird Flu in Iowa: A Murder of Crows

The Avian Flu outbreak in Iowa has created problems for many people – including my magician buddy, Michael Oz, whose doves have been banned from performing in his act at the Iowa State Fair Talent Show this summer (link http://whotv.com/2015/08/04/avian-flu-keeping-iowa-magician-from-bringing-dove-act-to-state-fair/ ).  That sucks for Oz, but it’s understandable.

THIS is really crazy, though.  The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is reporting the recent discovery of over 1,200 dead CROWS in northwest Iowa, and there was obvious concern that they may have died from the Avian Flu.

image

A bird pathologist examined the remains of each crow, and, to everyone’s relief, confirmed that the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu.  The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts.

image

During the detailed analysis, it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the birds’ beaks and claws.

image

By analyzing these paint residues, it was determined that approximately 99% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only about 1% had been killed by an impact with a car.

image

An Ornithological Behaviorist was hired to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentage of truck kills versus car kills.

image

He very quickly concluded the reason:  When crows eat road kill, they always have a “look-out” crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.

image

They discovered that, while all of the look-out crows could easily shout “Caaa,” not a single one could shout “Truck.”
